It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

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?

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. .

#AD Our girls love nature, so this weekend, we headed to a local nature preserve for a little animal watching, walking and family time. We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

Chocolate Dipped Waffle Sticks for Valentine’s Day

If You Love It, Share It!
  • 1

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to serve the love(s) of your life. Whether it be your significant other or your kids, these Chocolate Dipped Waffle Sticks are sure to make them fall madly in love with you! If you’re looking for an easy, delicious recipe, read on!

We were lucky enough to have our Aunt Cindy “Dee Dee” staying with us this past weekend. Aside from spoiling us with love, Dee Dee loves to cook for us when she visits. She brings herself, a small suitcase, her dog Tuca and a car full of Pampered Chef products! In fact, she’s been a Pampered Chef Consultant for 18 years! Impressive isn’t it? So when I told her that I wanted to prepare a special Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed recipe for my family, she pulled out her waffle stick pan and suggested chocolate covered waffle sticks with strawberries. YES PLEASE!

Over the years, I’ve owned a couple of waffle makers and while they did produce some delicious waffles, they always produced more of a mess.  This waffle stick pan made the whole process super easy! You can get one in time for Valentine’s Day (it’s only $25), but don’t worry, if you don’t have one, you can always make waffles in a waffle maker or even buy frozen (I won’t tell).

It took us only minutes to mix the batter and I had everything we needed in my pantry and refrigerator. Then, we filled each section 1/2 to 3/4 of the way, baked at 400 for 13 minutes and voila! Beautifully browned waffle sticks that filled the house with all kinds of yummy smells. I wouldn’t mind if my house smelled like that every day.

While you can easily use maple syrup or powdered sugar, we decided to go all out. We melted some chocolate chips and pink candy melts and grabbed a couple of fresh strawberries. It was so easy and so delicious. I can’t wait to recreate this on Valentine’s Day. Serve it along side a hot cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk and there will be no doubt how much they are loved. Make sure you save a couple for yourself because you’re very special too.
