In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

Trigger warning: Abduction 
Courageous is not the first adjective I'd use to describe myself. I don't open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don't always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don't make the same mistakes I do.  This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren't something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people... until now. One of the scariest nights of my life, which only seemed fitting to share on Halloween. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the blog and read about the night I was almost abducted.

This year we broke a record. Less than 2 minutes before Falynn found the perfect pumpkin. Usually it’s a never ending decision-fest which more often than not, ends in begging us for 2 or 3 pumpkins because she can’t leave any of them behind. But this year, it took only a couple of minutes and I couldn’t have been more relieved. Swipe left to see what she wound up creating. Does it look like anyone you know?

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.

    I haven’t heard of any of these things besides the cotton candy grapes. I’ve gotta say I had mixed feelings about the cotton candy grapes until I tried them. Yum!

    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!
