Looking for a fun twist on your average mudslide? Here's a maple cactus mudslide mocktail, the perfect frozen blended treat! With white chocolate, maple syrup, and a splash of cactus water, it's everything you want in a mudslide and then some! This one is perfect for brunch! | Mocktail Recipe | Maple Syrup | Brunch drink |

I love a challenge. Sometimes, that challenge is to use a strange ingredient in a new recipe. And when my son found a carton of cactus water at the store, I had to use it in a fun new way. Now, I’ve been meaning to make a delicious maple drink for awhile, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! It may sound a little strange, but prickly pear cactus water is already free of prickle (since it’s store-bought), and this mocktail is all about that white chocolate maple flavor with a refreshing hint of that cactus water. Trust me, you’ll love every element of this Maple Cactus Mudslide frozen mocktail. It’s perfect for brunch!

Be ready for summer with these easy Gulf Coast style Shrimp Tacos! They're so easy to make and absolutely delicious. Feel the Gulf Island flavor-- shrimp, taco shells, and plenty of flavor. #OurCaringHands [ad]

The clock is ticking, y’all. I am just weeks away from the event that I look forward to all year long. I’d say I’m practically packed, but we all know I’ll end up doing that the night before I leave. I’m talking about summer vacation, and for me, oh, it’s so much more than just a little break. See, for almost two decades now, summer vacation has meant something a little bit different for my family. It hasn’t just meant beach, and sand, and the sun, but it’s meant a whole lot of family time.

Every summer, we make the trek down to the Gulf Coast, to a tiny island called Dauphin Island, Alabama. If you’re a long-time reader, you’ve probably even seen me talk about it every summer for the past several years. This year we will be driving about 16 hours like we do every summer. Why? To enjoy the beach with our family, who live in another state.

To save money, we split condo costs. We also make sure to cook and eat meals family-style in the condo, rather than going out to eat a lot. That doesn’t mean we never visit local restaurants…. We totally do! There are so many great options for Gulf Coast flavor. Restaurants there serve up fried fish platters, po’boys, and of course, delicious shrimp tacos.

There is a horrible misconception going around, and I feel like I have to clear it up with y’all. There are people in this world… I can’t believe I even have to type this out… that think play dates are exclusively for kids. Shhh, don’t tell, but some of us know the real reason play dates exist. Sure, they’re great for kids, don’t get me wrong. I mean, as a homeschool mom, I love for my son to have play dates and get some socialization. But let’s be real.

Play dates are for moms.
