After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

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. . .

Super Mom’s Favorite Things Volume 1

If You Love It, Share It!

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.

    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!
