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?

We love Halloween because it’s an opportunity for our girls to express their individuality and personality! Since buying a ready-made costume can get pretty pricey and limit you to only a handful of options, I challenged our teenager to create her own costume, using only pieces found at our local thrift store. I was pleasantly surprised to see that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Now that’s a great deal.

Frida Kahlo, born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderon, was born in July of 1907 and was an incredible Mexican painter, known mostly for her self-portraits and portraits inspired by nature and Mexican artifacts. As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her looks. I am so proud of her.

What You’ll Need for Your DIY Frida Kahlo Costume

Colorful Dress: Until Lucia found this dress, she wasn’t sure what her 2nd DIY costume was going to be.  But as soon as she found it, the colorful, fun nature of it immediately reminded her of Frida Kahlo. She was able to find this adorable floral dress for only $4.99.

Jewelry: In the majority of Frida Kahlo’s photos, she is wearing long earrings and a thick gold chain. Lucia had these pieces in her jewelry box already.

Floral Headband: Frida Kahlo almost always had flowers in her hair in her photos. You have a couple of options here. You can either buy some synthetic flowers at your local craft store or find a headband with flowers already on it.  Lucia had this particular headband already.

Makeup: Clearly it would have been a better idea to create a unibrow with a brown/black eyebrow pencil, but since Frida Kahlo didn’t actually have a unibrow, she just chose to accentuate it in her self-portraits, and because she’s a teenager and doesn’t want that photo on the internet, Lucia chose to draw thick eyebrows vs. the unibrow. She also chose a deep red lipstick.

She did a great job with her DIY Frida Kahlo costume, didn’t sh? Make sure to check out her DIY Thrift Store Kim Possible Costume as well!

An inexpensive and fun costume idea. We got everything we need for a DIY Frida Kahlo costume at our local thrift store for less than $5.
