Growing up, I was incredibly shy. When I was 12, I was moved from private to public school and for the first time, since I was a toddler, had to make new friends. #ad While 8th grade prepared me a bit, high school was even harder since I only knew a handful of people there. I realized that in order to gain the confidence I was seriously lacking, I needed to become a part of something bigger than me. I tried out and made our high school’s dance team, the Titanaires, in 9th grade. Suddenly, that shy girl found herself. I continued to dance throughout high school and discovered the power of teamwork.  We all walked out onto that field the same, no matter how skilled we were, what we looked like or what our home life was like. We came together as a family and put on a show that always had the fans in the bleachers cheering. Being a Titanaire changed me. 20+ years later, I’m still really good friends with a number of my teammates. Now, as the Mother of three girls, I always encourage them to find something they love, practice and become a part of something that will change their lives as it did mine. Whether it’s volleyball, gymnastics, dance or soccer, I watch my girls transform each and every time they practice, perform or play. Did you know that between the ages of 12 and 13, the number of girls who say they’re afraid to fail increases by 150%? By age 14, girls drop out of sports at twice the rate of boys. That’s why @Athleta is committed to helping keep girls in the game. That’s the #PowerofShe.  #AthletaGirl #girlempowerment #girlsquad #girlsrock #womenathletes #womenempowered #womenempowerment #girlmama #girlmom #gymnastics #gymnasticslife #handstand #handstandpractice #novahighschool #novatitans #novatitanalumni #titanaire #letsgotitans

Yesterday, I posted my deepest, darkest secret on my blog. It look me 24 hours to get the nerve to share it on here. I’ve been writing that post for a while. It probably didn’t go live the day I intended it to and it might disappear at some point. But enough is enough. Time for me to put my big girl panties on and stop lying to myself and everyone else. I hope you won’t think any different of me or judge me in any way. I’m still the same person, I’m just not pretending anymore. .

As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years. 
You don’t have to “live with it”.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

My girls are snackers. When they get home from school, they want to be able to grab a quick snack to take with them on the way to after-school activities, or to enjoy while they do their homework. #ad Peanut Butter is a huge hit in our home, but it can get messy, so when I found out about Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, I couldn't wait to grab some. Instead of making a huge mess (and forgetting to close the lid) with a regular container of peanut butter, the girls can grab one packet and easily add it to just about anything. Some of our favorites are bananas, apples, pretzels, celery or crackers. They have fun creating new combinations and I love that they come in convenient 1.15oz squeezable packets. So much less mess! They are also perfect for their lunchboxes. The peanut butter is so creamy and delicious! BTW, they are naturally gluten-free! @windstonefarms peanut butter packets are now available at your local @walmart. Make sure to pick some up, and check out our stories for a special offer from Ibotta! What will you put #WindstoneFarmsPB on?

Top 10 April Fool’s Cell Phone Pranks

Let me start by saying, I have never been a fan of April Fool’s Day. It’s a day I usually spend in my home, not answering the phone and not subjecting myself to any situation where I might get fooled. Why? I have no idea. I guess, like most people, I just don’t like people laughing at me for any reason. So when I became a Mom, I promised myself that I would never purposely try to fool my kids.

And I kept that promise… for about the first 10 years or so. But then my oldest came home from school on April Fool’s Day and was telling me all of the ways that her friend’s parents had fooled them. I thought I was being a good Mom, but she thought she was being left out. So, the following year, I cut a bunch of E’s out of brown construction paper, dropped them in a baking pan and covered it with aluminum foil. When she got home from school, I told her and her younger sister that there was a pan of brownies waiting on the counter for them (brown E’s… get it?). They ran in, ripped the foil off and yelled.. “MOOOOMMM!” I’ll never forget the laughter that followed. They couldn’t wait to go to school the next day and tell their friends. It was the day I changed my mind about April Fool’s Day.

This year, since most of our day-to-day lives revolve around our cell phones, I thought it would be fun to share 10 ways you can prank your loved ones, just by borrowing their cell phone for a few minutes.

Top 10 April Fool’s Cell Phone Pranks

  1. Change Contact Names – change some of their contact names to random things like Spiderman, This Guy, Little Miss Sunshine, Uh Oh.. Not Him Again, April Fool’s
  2. Set Alarms… Lots of Alarms – set alarms every few minutes, for hours. That should be fun!
  3. Change the Language – Go into settings and change it to another language.
  4. Change the Fingerprint – if you have an iPhone, you can add your own finger print and delete theirs. They won’t be able to access their phone with their print (only with their pass code)
  5. Change the Wallpaper – Change it to something that’s sure to make them giggle. A goat wearing a dress perhaps?
  6. Add a Text Replacement – Choose a word they probably use often in text or emails like “the” and add a keyboard text replacement to something funny “April Fool’s”… so when they text “I’ll be at the house soon”, it will change to “I’ll be at April Fool’s house soon.” Get creative! The possibilities are endless.
  7. Change their Ringtone – Pick a song they are most likely to dislike and make it their ringtone.
  8. Add Your Birthday to Their Calendar (feel free to make your birthday every day, for the next couple of weeks) – Add a special note like “make sure to buy ____ an awesome gift”
  9. Selfie Bomb – Take as many selfies as you can.
  10. Crack & Break It – Download this app, take a screenshot of their main screen, add a break and leave that image on their phone. When they open their phone, they’ll think their screen is shattered.

Which one will you try?

10 best April Fool's Cell Phone Pranks to play on your friends and family.

    I used to change the wallpaper of my friend’s computers all the time, not just for April fools day. I used to search for the funnies animal pictures, like goats or giraffes and then laugh when they would turn their machines on and burst into tears of laughter.

    • Heather
      April 1, 2019

      Sounds like a fun place to work!

  • Amber Myers
    April 1, 2019

  • Stacie
    April 1, 2019

    I love these. Great minds think alike, as they say. This morning, all three of my kids were awaked about 30 minutes early to alarms that went off every minute. It was FANTASTIC.

    • Heather
      April 1, 2019

      Please tell me you got that on video?

  • Karen
    April 1, 2019

    Oh my gosh! Some of these are excellent and harmless pranks! I don’t mind a good April Fools joke, as long as there’s nobody being physically or mentally harmed. I love the idea of setting excessive alarms, especially if they’re in school or work. Cruel? Yes! Perfect? Absolutely!

  • Jeanette
    April 1, 2019

    I cannot believe it is April already. This is going way too fast. I like the idea of these pranks. It would be fun to do.
