There’s something about a good, homemade stuffing (or dressing as some call it) that makes the whole Thanksgiving meal that much better. I have tried a number of different types of stuffing in my years, but I always found them to be very soggy and while many love it that way, I’m just not a fan of the mush. Once we had kids and I started wanting to cook entire thanksgiving feasts by myself, I realized that without the perfect stuffing recipe, my feast was going to be more of a flop. Over the years, I finally perfected the recipe and now, I’m excited to share it with all of you on the blog today (link is in my bio or you can swipe up in stories).

Apparently, it’s my birthday 🎂 … Isn’t it funny how as you get older, your birthday gets less and less exciting? I used to do a countdown, like a month in advance. I would remind everyone I saw. It was ridiculous. Now, if it wasn’t for the 3049823048 notifications that I get from FB, from all of the people that I haven’t heard from since last year, I might not even remember it’s my birthday at all. But since the cat’s out of the bag, yes, it’s my birthday. I’m 35 + shipping and handling and feel every bit my age, especially when I try to keep up with my kids . I’m spending the day packing for my birthday vacation (whoop!) and look forward to celebrating with my family! Since I can’t take you all with me, I’ve joined a bunch of really awesome bloggers to give away $430 on the blog today! So take a minute, click on the #linkinbio or swipe up in stories and enter to win! What would you do with the extra money?

While I do talk about it in DMs when people reach out, it occurred to me that many of you are unaware of my other blog, @thesuperblogcoach. The story behind it is that I had a couple of incredible women who taught me what I needed to know to become a successful blogger and influencer so I could support my family through this fun career. I wanted to make sure I did the same for others. It got difficult repeating things over and over again so I decided to create a site where I would blog solely about tips for bloggers and influencers, no matter where in their journey they are. That way, I could direct people over there and they can read at their own speed. I don’t charge for any of the info. It’s totally free. Just my way of paying it forward. I hope you’ll check it out and if you have anything you’re currently struggling with, let me know. I’ll add it to my topic list for future blog posts! Now tell me, did you know about thesuperblogcoach.com?

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?

An Innovative Children’s Book That Stars Your Girl as a Tech Hero

If You Love It, Share It!

Our girls LOVE to read.  We actually had to build a floor to ceiling shelf for them to hold all of their books and they still don’t fit!  It’s a collection that we don’t mind them having and are more than happy to help them to grow both their stacks of books and their love of learning.  I have always loved reading myself and while I didn’t have hundreds of books like my daughters do, there are a few that I still remember loving, even though it was SOOO long ago.  One of those was a personalized book.  It had my name and my friend’s names and was custom made especially for me.  It made me feel so special and it’s a feeling I’ll always remember.

When I was contacted by Your Secret Code, I was over the moon!  I knew that Falynn was going to go crazy when she saw that she had a book with her name in it (and boy was I right!).  When the book arrived, it was so much more than I imagined.  The illustrations are absolutely amazing and the story was awesome! Your Secret Code is about a little girl who loves coding and building robots and is always making messes. She decides to build a robot to do her chores for her. But when she arms it with artificial intelligence, things quickly go out of control – until she saves the day. We barely got it out of the package before she was begging us to read it to her.  And once we were done, she was begging us to read it again.

I’d have to say that her favorite part of the book was the part that shows her Daddy talking about her messy room.  She looked at me, looked at her Daddy and was shocked.  I think it was at that moment that she realized this book really was about her since Daddy is ALWAYS telling her to clean up.  That was a detail I didn’t even have to share when we ordered the book.  I guess she’s not alone in the mess department!

Your Secret Code is an innovative children’s book that stars your girl as a tech hero.  As a mother of 3 girls, I don’t think there is anything more important than teaching them that they can do anything that they put their mind to!   According to their website, studies show that children begin to associate jobs to genders between ages 5 and 7, and they base their aspirations on what they are exposed to.  Stereotypes come from everywhere and children’s stories are full of them. Girls, especially female minorities, need more sources of inspiration in order to break down stereotypes. This isn’t just a story about technology. It’s about bravery, problem-solving and leadership: values that are ubiquitous to any fulfilling future. Expose your children to positive role models who will inspire them to become the leaders of their lives.  A strong message wrapped up in a beautiful, personalized book.  It’s the perfect gift for any little girl!

Now that you know all about it, let me share with you how it works.  You personalize your girl’s name, skin color and hair style, and receive a beautiful hard cover picture book in 2 weeks. Having this book in my hands, I can tell you that it’s worth every penny! Just visit YourSecretCode.com to get started!
