I love the holidays. Any holiday really. It's a great excuse to pull out our box of craft supplies that we've collected over the years and use our imaginations! And I especially love encouraging our little one’s creativity. We try 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, their school friends or even their favorite teachers! Hopefully you already checked out our Snowman Jars, which were a HUGE hit. Now, we're excited to share our second Christmas craft idea.. these hot cocoa reindeer jars! Everything you need to make hot cocoa, all wrapped up in a festive little jar that’s easy for the kids to make! Click the link in our bio or swipe up in stories for the step-by-step. .

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?

We have another super fun Valentine idea for your kids! You only need 5 supplies (3-4 of which you probably already have in your home) and I’m even sharing a FREE PRINTABLE for you, so it’s even less work! Hurray for convenience! When I asked my 9-year-old what her friends liked, there was one thing that really stood out to me… lip balm! I immediately searched for lip balm in bulk and found a great 24 pack on Amazon. This idea is so simple, you’ll wish you had done it sooner. I know I’m kicking myself for all of those wasted years of buying boxed Valentine cards with those cheap lollipops. Without further ado, I’m excited to reveal our “You’re the Balm” Valentine idea!

Last week was bring your child to work day. I was skeptical at first, because it seemed like an excuse to skip school and I couldn’t imagine that my kids would do anything but watch TV and ask me for food every ten minutes. But let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised! Iyla, my 9-year-old, is the only one who decided to stay home and work with me. So after a few administrative tasks, which she rocked by the way, I told her that she was going to design and put together her Valentine cards.

She made a few sketches and I chose the one that I thought would be the easiest for us to make. I designed the cards (with her help of course). It was her idea to use the hearts at the end of the fuse. She chose the wording too. Once they were printed, she used our paper-cutter to cut them out and attached all of the lip balms to the card stock.

I think we may have spent a total of 30 minutes on the entire project (not including the time it took to photograph). Iyla even took some of the pictures! She did a tremendous job. And she’s going to be even more proud when she hands them out to her friends on Valentine’s Day and tells them that she made something that was totally Pinterest worthy!

  4. Take a small piece of tape and fold and connect it and stick to the bottom of one of the round lip balms.
