Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Growing up, I always wanted a sibling. I wished over every star and every birthday candle. I even asked my magic eight ball constantly if I would ever have one but as many times as it told me “all signs point to yes”, I remained an only child. I look forward to the days when my three girls appreciate that they have best friends for life... two women who will always have their back, lend them a hand or provide a shoulder to cry on. In the meantime, I make sure to create fun reasons for them to “work” together without bickering. So, I’m excited to announce that Iyla and Falynn are starting a new venture together, @thesuperkidlife and I hope you’ll follow along and show them some love. Although I will run the IG page for them for now, Iyla will be in charge of content and stories, so you’re in for a treat! They already have their first sponsored posts lined up! Stay tuned. . .

If you’ve never tried them, this is your reason to. If you’ve tried them and aren’t really a fan, this recipe is going to change your mind! I haven’t met a person who wasn’t a fan after they tried my collard greens. After years of keeping this recipe all to myself, I’m finally sharing it to change the minds of all of those greens-haters. So no preconceived notions about whether or not you like collard greens. Instead, I challenge you to try this recipe out and tell me you aren’t a fan! The recipe is on the blog (link in bio or swipe up in stories). Will you try them? .

Is it just me or is the weekend before the kids go back to school after a break, the absolute busiest?! AD: While it felt like we were go-go-go, we did make some time to visit our local park so Falynn and Iyla could play with their new favorite toy, Stomp Rocket! Have you seen this yet? Swipe to see it in action and check out our stories for even more fun! Stomp Rocket is pretty much the coolest toy and it teaches STEM principles, which is a huge plus! It comes with three different stunt planes designed by aeronautical engineers to do a variety of amazing tricks. The rockets soar up to 400 feet in the air, so it keeps them running after the rockets (amazing exercise)! @originalstomprocket reduces screen time with a toy that’s 100% kid-powered by jumping on the launch pad. The girls love to see who can make it go the highest and the farthest! I love that you can play with it in your backyard but it’s also portable and light enough to take with you. It makes the best gift and is available at your in @target stores and online!

There are many special memories I can share about my Nana. She was funny, brutally but necessarily honest and had the most beautiful smile. And while I can go on and on about her to anyone that will listen (or read), I love to cook her favorite dishes so that my family remembers her through her recipes. Today, since it’s Yom Kippur, I want to share one of my favorite recipes, Nana’s Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Homemade Gravy.

Isn’t it funny how certain smells and tastes can instantly transport you back to your childhood. I vividly remember coming home from school and knowing exactly what she was cooking by the aroma that filled the front foyer. Sitting down at that small round table in her yellow and white wallpapered kitchen, I would often ask for seconds because the meat was so tender and the gravy was so creamy. It tasted like home.

Once I became a Mom and she handed me the recipe, I’ve adapted it just a bit. I use our crock pot and add everything to the slow cooker in the morning, so our home can be filled with that yummy pot roast smell for the entire day. My kids walk through the front door and the look on their faces is almost exactly how I imagined I looked as a child. And I can only hope that as they have families of their own, it becomes a family tradition that goes on and on, along with the memory of our incredible Nana.

While the recipe is very easy to follow, one thing I do want to mention is that you shouldn’t skimp on the seasoning. This should be a large piece of beef brisket and so you should season accordingly.  You can also use fresh, minced garlic if you are a garlic lover like Nana was.

Don’t forget to check out my other family-favorite recipes. What dishes do you remember from your childhood? Comment below and share it with me!

My Nana's pot roast and gravy recipe tastes like home. Just add your ingredients to the slow cooker and dinner is served.
