I'm a Florida girl... born and raised. So when the temperature drops, I'm honestly a little bit clueless. #sponsored Oh, and when we travel to places that have cooler weather... I never know what to pack to make sure we stay warm. I do have one must-have though... our @myroovia personal space heater. It's so small and compact, it can go wherever we go. Plus, when we get to our destination, #Roovia plugs right into the wall so we don't have to worry about cords or cables! I love that you can set the temperature, the fan speed and the timer for up to 12 hours. And for our cooler Florida weather (sometimes we drop to the 30's if we're lucky), Roovia is perfect for the bedroom or to take into the office! Where do you need a personal space heater? #WinterWithRooviaโฃ

Valentine idea #6: For when...

Life is a lot like an amusement park ride. We all start off waiting in a line, listening to or reading instructions on what is about to happen. They warn you about safety and how to get the most enjoyment out of your experience. Some listen carefully and others are distracted by other, less important things.โฃ
โฃ
And then the ride begins. We all start off slow, cautious, anticipating what the ride will be like for us. Will it be fun? Will it be scary? Exciting? A little bit of everything? We question our abilities and whether or not we paid enough attention. This is it, there is no turning back now. โฃโฃ
โฃ
Once it starts to increase in speed, we either close our eyes tightly or we give ourselves a pep talk. Maybe we realize that itโ€™s not as bad as we thought. So we throw our hands up and enjoy the moment. We take a snapshot in our mind and wish for this feeling more often. The feeling of accomplishment, of exhilaration, of freedom. โฃโฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s that 10 second rush that changes something in us. It might make us want to wait on that line again. It might make us want to try an even faster ride. It makes the rest of the moments at that theme park seem just a little bit mundane. We want to spend the rest of our time looking for that feeling again. And again.โฃโฃ
โฃ
But then, the ride slows down and eventually comes to a complete stop. Everyone exits and has a decision to make. Do they go back on again or do they try a new ride? Do they go home, happy to have experienced that one moment or do they seek out more? What will you do?โฃ

Life is a lot like...

1 5  Y E A R S. The date was 02/05/05. Our wedding was small. I was never a fan of being the center of attention and didnโ€™t want a grand, expensive wedding, so we planned the perfect, small wedding for less than $100 (dress included). We invited our family and a couple of close friends. We were planning on getting married on the beach, but since my Grandma wasn't able to walk on the sand, we moved it to our bossโ€™s balcony, which overlooked the ocean. The view was breathtaking.โฃ โฃ
We actually found out that I was pregnant with our oldest daughter about a week before our wedding. I will never forget Nelsonโ€™s reaction. He literally jumped up and down.  I knew what a special person I was marrying, but I could have never imagined what type of Dad he would be, until Lucia was born.โฃ โฃ
I wound up having to have a c-section and had high blood pressure complications shortly after. I was back in the hospital when she was just a week old and Nelson completely took over, taking care of Lucia day and night and really embracing his new role as a Dad. Even the nurses at the hospital couldnโ€™t believe that he was doing it all on his own. Everyone told me that I had found a diamond in the rough.โฃ โฃ
Throughout the years, he has continued to amaze me on a daily basis. Nelson is not just my husband, he is my rock. I struggle with severe anxiety and he is my safe place. He knows exactly how to calm me down; and when I accomplish something (big or small), heโ€™s my biggest cheerleader. He is unlike anyone else Iโ€™ve ever known. He does pretty much everything around the house, takes the girls and I to and from every event and errand. He helps with homework, cooks the meals on most nights and even does the girlsโ€™ hair for them. I donโ€™t know what I did to deserve him, but Iโ€™m so incredibly grateful for him. I canโ€™t imagine my life any different, with anyone else by my side. โฃ
โฃ
Happy 15th Anniversary Babe! May you find the strength to put up with me for at least another 15 more. โฃ

Extra. It’s a word I use on a daily basis when my girls have a meltdown about something that is ย not as serious as their adolescent minds have them believe. So when we saw these “You’re So Ex-Straw” Valentine’s Day cards from Minted, I knew they were PERFECT! Pair them with these adorable crazy twisty straws and you have the perfect gift for your kid’s classmates.

The unique crazy straw design features a straw illustration, a play on words and is printed on luxe paper and comes in 5 different color options. These “You’re So Ex-Straw” Valentines are the perfect way for your kids to celebrate with their classmates! They have your child’s name printed on them so all you have to do is add the recipient’s name. They are cute enough to give out on their own, in the envelopes provided! At $20 for 25 cards, they are a price point that doesn’t break the bank.

Check out the full Valentine’s Day collection.

Minted has a variety of designs and are offering my readers free shipping with code: VDAYESSUPERMOM for a limited time.

Minted cards for Valentine's Day

glass container filled with straws and valentine's day notes

 

Some things that I considered when choosing the straws:

  1. Plastic… it’s an understandably bad word these days. So I wanted to find straws that were recyclable and reusable.
  2. BPA and Phthalates FREE… another word we’ve heard more and more over the years. Another important factor when I was shopping online for these crazy straws.
  3. Colors… I like the girls Valentine’s Day gifts to be fun, bright and cheerful. I wanted bright colors that wouldn’t fade.
  4. Quality… No one wants a product that can be used once and then has to be thrown out (especially if it’s marketed as reusable).
  5. Non-Toxic.. that’s obvious, isn’t it? And I wanted them to be food safe. Something you assume you are getting with kid-friendly products.

I was excited when I found everything I was looking for in a crazy straw on Amazon! These crazy straws come in a pack of 40.
