So your kid spends all of their time watching other kids open toys, play video games or walk around aimlessly, talking about nothing? Sounds exactly like this girl. Every time I turn around, she is watching someone else’s family on YouTube. This year, I asked Falynn to create a gift guide with what she wants most for the holidays. I was NOT surprised that her list was full of things that she's seen or heard about on her favorite YouTube channels. She even used the word "merch" which totally cracked me up! MERCH! What 7 year old says that?! She has also asked that I figure out how to create a toy line with her face on the box. Those videos have her convinced that it's the natural next step for us and she's confused as to why it's taking me so long to get it done. 😒 Those YouTube families make it look so easy, don't they?! Anyway, instead of sharing a holiday gift guide for 7 year olds, I figured I would share the perfect holiday gift guide for all of you parents out there who have kids that are just as obsessed with @ryansworld, @tictactoyfamily,  @funnelvisionfam and all those other fun youtubers who are living our dream lives right now. Head to the blog and check it out! .

Last month I wrote a “favorite things” blog post on a whim. It was fun to share the book I was reading, my favorite movie, podcast and tv series and other things I am currently loving. The response was great and I got so many messages from readers asking for more. So, I’m excited to announce the Super Mom’s Favorite Things will become a monthly series! AND volume 2 is up today. I even included our new favorite snack from @artisantropic! Sooooo yummy! Click on the link in my bio or swipe up in stories and let me know what categories you’d like to see me add in January!

This week has been hard. Sunday would have been my Nana’s 95th birthday and it was also the first anniversary of the passing of one of my best friends, Brooke. 
This was the photo that hung in my Nana’s living room. She would show it to everyone that visited her.  She told me she would stare at it and smile every single day. She was so proud of all of her great-granddaughters. 🥰 I’m so grateful that my girls were able to know what an amazing woman she really was, even if she was taken from us a little earlier than expected. So while I try to reflect on the good times, I’m still trying to accept that she and my friend are both gone, too soon. It’s been a hard week, but I will get past this and keep living my best life... that’s what they would have wanted. How do you deal with grief?

Happy National Cookie Day! Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor to celebrate today, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good. Head to the blog for the full recipe (link is in my bio or swipe up in stories). What kind of cookies are you celebrating with today?

I say it all the time. We may have rescued Elle from @bigdogranchrescue, but we needed her just as much, if not more, than she needed us. I can’t imagine our family without her. Does your family have any pets? I’d love to hear about them and how they changed your life. .

We visited @treasurecoastsq last week to remind our girls that the true spirit of the holidays is about giving. #sponsored With their lists in hand, they went to their favorite stores (Claires, Spencer Gifts, Forever 21 and Justice), picking out the perfect gifts for their favorite people.They did such a great job of choosing each present without going over their budget and the only thing they got for themselves was hot cocoa and a snack from Starbucks! On our way out, we took some pictures by the Santa Photo Experience, located in the Old Navy Court and someone special snuck up behind them to get in the pictures. They had no idea that Santa was standing just a couple of feet behind them!  There’s something about the holiday decor at Treasure Coast Square that always gets us in the Christmas spirit. Our next trip will be to drop off some donated toys at The Salvation Army Angel Tree table! What is your favorite part of the holidays? #holidayatsimon

Where are my Frozen fans at?! #ad My girls have been fans since day 1, so it’s not a shock that most of their Christmas wish list is Frozen themed. When we found this @HuffyBicycles Disney Frozen EZ Build Bike at Walmart, Falynn couldn’t "let it go" and she received a Christmas gift early! This bike has so many fun features! It even plays Frozen sounds! It’s available in 12” or 16” and features Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It’s perfect for young riders! Head to Walmart to purchase a Huffy bike for your little one this holiday season. They make the best big reveal gifts for the holidays and you’re sure to get tons of nice "warm hugs!" This bike is ON SALE now -- link in bio and stories to shop.  #GiveTheRide #LiveTheRide #AvailableAtWalmart .

Falynn has always been our little fashionista #ad But now that she's older, she's discovering her own sense of style. She prefers shorts to dresses, hats to headbands and would call her own style "swagalicious," if you ask her. She was super excited to receive this new #BMR1959 Ken doll! She must have spent 15 minutes describing each piece of his outfit. She really got a kick out of their matching hairdos! I love watching her enjoy @Barbie as much as I did as a kid! BMR1959™ is perfect for the holidays! These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style. Is #Barbie a staple in your home as well? .

Super Mom’s Favorite Things Volume 1

I have the attention span of a walnut. There I said it. I fall madly in love with things quickly and fall out of love just as quickly not because I discover I don’t love them anymore, but more so because I just get bored. I thought it would be fun to share what I’m currently loving for those of you that are looking for something new to read, watch, listen or try. I’m thinking about making this a regular monthly series. What do you think? Here is my first list of Super Mom’s favorite things.

Favorite Book

I’m so excited to have written those two words. I have struggled with finding the time to read for YEARS! It used to be something I did daily but after kids and work, I just got lazy and found it easier to watch tv. My kids LOVE reading and are constantly asking to go to the library so when I took them earlier this week, I picked up a book for myself. Turns out, if you take the television out of the bedroom, you have plenty of time to read before you go to sleep. PLUS, I get sleepy faster! Score!

I have a love for mystery or true crime stories, so I found an author named Sara Blaedel. She actually has a couple of series and now that I’m 20 chapters in on the first one, I can’t wait to read the others!

The Daughter by Sara Blaedel

The Daughter by Sara Blaedel is the first book in a series.

A daughter’s unexpected inheritance following her estranged father’s death plunges her into a web of crime and deceit in small-town Wisconsin in the latest emotionally taut novel from Sara Blaedel, a writer Karin Slaughter calls “a force to be reckoned with” and whose books have sold over 3 million copies worldwide.

School-portrait photographer Ilka Nichols Jensen is leading a modest, regimented, anything-but-extraordinary life in Copenhagen when unexpected news rocks her quiet existence: Her father–who walked out suddenly and inexplicably on the family more than three decades ago, and whom she hasn’t heard from since–has died. And, even more surprising, he’s left her something. His funeral home. In Racine, Wisconsin. Desperate for a connection to the parent she never really knew, Ilka makes an uncharacteristically rash decision and jumps on a plane to the United States.

There she stumbles on an unsolved murder and into the path of a killer. Suddenly, learning everything she can about the man who was her father becomes a matter of life and death–because what Ilka doesn’t know might just kill her . . .

“Crime-writer superstar Sara Blaedel’s great skill is in weaving a heartbreaking social history into an edge-of-your-chair thriller.” –Oprah.com

Favorite Movie

Although I’m dedicating at least an hour a night to reading, I love a good movie, like most people. After I was sure I had watched everything on Hulu, Netflix, HBO and Amazon Prime, I found this gem, Isn’t It Romantic, which I’ve actually watched twice already.

Isn't It Romantic staring Rebel Wilson

First of all, Rebel Wilson is my spirit animal. I mean, if we met, she’s probably be bored out of her mind because I would be totally starstruck, but I just love her. She’s so funny and real and my bestie in an alternate universe. This movie is for everyone that loves romantic comedies and how absolutely ridiculous they can be. It’s the perfect feel-good movie!

Isn’t It Romantic Staring Rebel Wilson

Natalie (Rebel Wilson) is an architect in New York City who isn’t being taken as seriously in her career as she would like. But after getting mugged in the subway and becoming unconscious she wakes to find a very different city, filled with romance, grand gestures, dancing and flowers. It doesn’t take long for Natalie to realize she is somehow living in what she hates the most – a romantic comedy.

Favorite Series

I’ve watched enough series to have a list of favorites. I’m a binger. I love the idea of being able to watch an entire season (or multiple seasons) at once, without having to wait for a new episode. So this is a tough one. I have a number of series that I absolutely LOVE. Choosing one was tough. But I think if I have to share just one with you guys, I’m going to share this one because it’s just great tv.

Dead to Me Netflix Series

Dead to Me Starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini

While there is currently only one season of Dead to Me, it’s worth the binge! I love a twisty-turny type show. Christina Applegate plays a hotheaded widow searching for the hit-and-run driver who mowed down her husband befriends an eccentric optimist who isn’t quite what she seems. They expect Season 2 to be out in 2020. I personally can’t wait!

Favorite Podcast

This one is a new one to me. I was forced to listen to my first podcast a few months ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. Just like books, give me all the true crime podcasts! Super Dad actually turned me onto To Live and Die in LA. I was hooked from the moment I started it. There is something about Neil Strauss’ voice, and the way he tells the story that pulls you in.

To Live and Die in LA Podcast cover

To Live and Die in LA hosted by NEIL STRAUSS

To Live and Die in LA takes a deep dive into the mysterious disappearance of 25-year-old Adea Shabani, an aspiring actress and model who vanished without a trace from her apartment complex near Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame. Last seen in February of 2018, Shabani is a native of Macedonia. Like the thousands who flock to Los Angeles each year, she hoped to realize her Hollywood dream of stardom. What really happened to Adea? The full story has never been told.

Favorite New Find

And finally, let’s talk about something I am loving right now. After seeing Aileen (@brooklynnsmama1) talk about these cotton candy grapes on her Instagram stories, I had to try them. So we took a “quick” trip to Target (and by quick I mean 2 hours of shopping for a cart full of things we definitely did not need).

cotton candy grapes at trader joes or target

Cotton Candy Grapes

Believe it or not, they taste EXACTLY like cotton candy. The girls couldn’t believe it. Iyla ate one and then asked if that’s where cotton candy comes from. I thought that was cute. I can tell you that if the girls want cotton candy in the future, I’m totally running out and getting them these. You can find them at Target and Trader Joes. I’m sure they sell them elsewhere, but those are the two places I know for sure.

Well, that’s it. My current favorite things. What did you think? Is there another category you’d like me to add next month?

A new monthly series where I'll be sharing my current favorite things to read, watch, listen to and try! Here are my November favorites.

    All of your favorite things sounds great. I’ll definitely check out the book since I’m looking for new ones to read. I saw the movie Isn’t It Romantic and it was hilarious, I’ve always loved watching Rebel Wilson.

    I agree with so many of these things! First, cotton candy grapes- where did they come from? They’re grapes on steroids! So delicious! I would LOVE this Rebel Wilson movie- I’m definitely going to check that out. Also, while I don’t live in LA, To Live and Die in LA the podcast sounds hilarious. I have so many on my list right now but I might add that in the future!
