This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

This girl lost another tooth...

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

The Ultimate Vegetarian Sandwich Featuring Udi’s Multigrain Bread

If You Love It, Share It!
This post is sponsored by Udi’s Gluten Free. All comments and opinions are my own.

When you don’t eat meat, you have to come up with new options for lunch. There are only so many salads you can eat, let’s be honest.  Sometimes you just want a good ol’ sandwich.  Being new to the vegetarian world, we have struggled with finding lunches that fill us up and also provide the nutrients we need. So we went on the hunt for a satisfying vegetarian sandwich and I’m happy to say that we found it.

After visiting a phenomenal vegan restaurant and having an avocado sandwich that was better than any meat filled sandwich I’ve ever eaten, I was finally confident that we could master the vegetarian lifestyle without sacrificing taste.  The sandwich was packed with veggies, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and was absolutely delicious. I’ve been dying to recreate it and finally have the opportunity, thanks to Udi’s® NEW Delicious Multigrain Bread. The best part was that it was even better than I remembered. To me, it is the ultimate vegetarian sandwich.

When I told my husband that I was making him a vegetarian sandwich for lunch, I think he was a little hesitant.  Being meat-free is still pretty new to him, so when I offered him a sandwich filled with veggies, I figured that he imagined a salad with two slices of bread.  Instead, he wound up eating three sandwiches and would have eaten a fourth if I had anymore bread left.  It was that good!

The combination of the creamy avocado, veggies, crunchy zucchini bacon and Udi’s Gluten Free Multigrain Bread is nothing short of perfection.  It leaves you satisfied without feeling guilty or overly stuffed.  I love that it’s easy to make and a sandwich that my entire family can enjoy.

About Udi’s

Udi’s is a game changer and the only gluten free bread that delivers a wholesome, delicious taste, soft texture and the right size for your needs. Not only is it certified gluten free, dairy and nut free, but it also contains  other vitamins and minerals and it’s DELICIOUS!  For this particular sandwich, I decided to toast the bread lightly in the oven at 200 degrees. It gave the crust a nice little crunch that really complemented the sandwich. While you could add some vegan mayonnaise to it, it really didn’t need it.

If anyone in your family can’t have gluten, or if you just want to cut gluten from your own diet like we have been doing, I highly recommend checking out Udi’s NEW Delicious Multigrain Bread. You will definitely be surprised at how good it really is.
