Highlights

I recently told a friend that taking Jersey places is like having a baby that gets an excessive amount of attention. ⁣ ⁣ I mean, she was getting noticed for her cute face and tiny body long before she had her wheels. ⁣ ⁣ But the wheelchair is like a magnet for attracting all sorts of people who will say and do just about anything you can imagine. Like chasing me down to get a minute with her. ⁣ ⁣ Or yelling at me from across a park. Like across a full field, to thank me for "not giving up on her." (Which was weird, because I definitely would NEVER give up on her, but that woman didn't know our story 🤷🏼‍♀️) ⁣ ⁣ Or whispering "I love your dog" as we walk by. (This one is my favorite! 🥰)⁣ ⁣ Or stopping me to tell me they wanted to stop me when they saw me last week, but they're happy they caught me this time.⁣ ⁣ Or screaming, literally screaming, to express how they can't stand how cute she is. (← That last one is just as alarming as you think it would be)⁣ ⁣ Now let me tell you 2 ways having a handicapped dog is like caring for a baby: ⁣ First, Jersey's paralysis means she doesn't have bladder or bowel control, so she needs to wear diapers. She also wears baby onesies or dresses with snaps to keep the diapers from falling off. Though it doesn't happen often, diapers can leak. So I keep a little bag with diapers, wipes and a fresh shirt, just in case.⁣ ⁣ Second, trotting around in a wheelchair is hard work, especially for a senior dog! So she needs breaks, and she only wants me to carry her when she gets tired. ⁣ ⁣ I love that I'm her person. And I love that I can help her when she needs it. Most of the time, life with my handicapped dog is joyful and rewarding and more precious than I ever imagined it would be. But sometimes I'm struck by how hard it is to make sure Jersey lives her best life. ⁣ ⁣ Is it worth it? 100%. I'd do all of it again and again and again if she needed it. But some days I just need to remind myself to stay home, avoid all the people and enjoy quiet time with my sweet little dog.

When the birthday girl says she wants a 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐮𝐞 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐬𝐨𝐟𝐭 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐳𝐞𝐥𝐬 for her 12th birthday, that’s what I’m going to give her! (Ad - click the link in my bio)⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 𝐂𝐫𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐅𝐚𝐫𝐦𝐬 gave me all the high-quality cheese goodness that I needed to make the cheese fondue, and a few of Piper’s friends helped her celebrate and have a fantastic birthday!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Make the cheese dip by combining 2 tablespoons of melted butter with one tablespoon cornstarch and 1 cup of milk over medium-low heat. Whisk in 1 cup each of shredded Swiss and shredded cheddar @CrystalFarms cheeses, and keep whisking until they’re melted. Stir in 1-2 tablespoons of cream cheese and serve!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I know (from experience!) that the right cheese makes all the difference when you’re making a delicate recipe like fondue. Crystal Farms is Made with Love in the Midwest. That means they source from a collection of family dairy farms to make high quality cheese for my family (and yours!). It's delicious, it's great for snacking and it melts beautifully!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Check out my stories for the charcuterie setup and to see exactly which delicious cheeses I used for the recipe. After that, learn more about great cheese, great farmers and a great way to keep farm families going strong at crystalfarmscheese.com or https://bit.ly/2U4FEMd.

🌈 One last “Happy Pride month!” from Jersey. She loves fiercely and equally, and she’ll be anyone’s ally when they need support, encouragement, love or positivity. ⁣ ⁣ ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜⁣ ⁣ P.S. I (and the rest of my family) feel exactly the same way as our dog 🙂 We have an open door and a safe space for anyone who needs us. xoxo

🌟“Wake up the members of my nation. It’s your time to be!”⁣ 🌟 ⁣ Treats, Popsockets goodies, tech accessories and a ring light? I’m IN LOVE with everything Paramount Plus and Nickelodeon gifted me to celebrate the revival of iCarly!⁣ ⁣ The new iCarly picks up nearly 10 years after the original show ended, and finds Carly Shay, the original influencer, and her friends navigating work, love and family in their 20s. Stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress have returned to the series, and they're joined by some new faces, too!⁣ ⁣ The first three episodes of #iCarly are available today (6/17/21), exclusively on @ParamountPlus. The remaining 10 episodes will be released weekly on the streaming service. ⁣ ⁣ I'm excited to see where life has taken Carly and her family! Thanks for the fun gift, #ParamountPlus & @Nickelodeon! ⁣ ⁣ #Nickelodeon #entertainment #treats @mirandacosgrove @jerrytrainor @nathankress @divalaci

One of my favorite moments of the summer (so far)! @lionsgate sent me a great mailer to have some #RockDog2 fun, so Piper played her new (blue!) ukulele while her cousin sang into the new karaoke microphone! We had so much fun with the rest of the items we received, so check out my Entertainment stories for more!⁣ ⁣ Rock Dog 2: Rock Around the Park is on digital and Blu-ray now! Thanks, @rockdogthemovie and @lionsgateathome!⁣ ⁣ #barknrollkit #rockdog #cousins #summerfun #wisconsin

Here's something most people don't know about me: I really, REALLY love to build and fix things 🧰⁣ ⁣ If an appliance stops working, I'll grab my toolbox and take it apart to find the problem 🛠 If something falls apart, I'm pretty sure I have the right kind of adhesive, epoxy or glue to get it back together again. If something I want can be built with the skills I have, I'll happily give it a shot and see if I can do it myself.⁣ ⁣ {AD} I think it's really important to lead by example. I want my kids to know that, with the right tools and a bit of research, there's a whole world of things to be built and fixed. ⁣ ⁣ Even better, it's all made easier with the right tools. Zoro.com upgraded my toolbox with a DEWALT reciprocating saw and a DEWALT hammer drill (both 20V MAX tools featuring FLEXVOLT ADVANTAGE, making these tools more powerful than ever before) and they've made a huge difference in what I can make and do! ⁣ ⁣ Zoro.com offers an endless aisle of products that includes millions of everyday items, plus hard-to-find items, too. They offer fast, free shipping on all orders over $50, no-hassle returns and friendly customer service from people who care. ⁣ ⁣ ⭐️⭐️ Click the link in my bio to check out everything at Zoro.com now! ⭐️⭐️ ⁣ ⁣ #FlexWithZoro @zoro_usa #dewalt

Remember your elementary school best friend? ⁣ ⁣ My daughter (on the left) and her bestie (on the right) found each other almost three years ago when they were both the 4th grade "new kids" at school. They bonded over books, musicals and writing (📚 🎶📝...Piper is 100% my daughter 😂), and they couldn't have chosen better interests to keep them connected when they couldn't see each other through the pandemic. ⁣ ⁣ I can't believe how much they've both grown and changed since the met, and I'm so, SO proud of who they're becoming. ⁣ ⁣ On another note, Piper's friend Hayden was far more enthusiastic than my son Haiden about modeling the super cool sweatshirts that @Dreamworks and @Netflix gifted us to announce the all new season of Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous! ⁣ ⁣ The animated series tells the story of six teens invited to attend a state-of-the-art adventure camp on Isla Nubar. When the dinosaurs break out of captivity they must band together to survive. ⁣ ⁣ Season 3 of Camp Cretaceous is streaming now. Watch it on Netflix today! ⁣ ⁣ #JurassicWorld #CampCretaceous #Netflix

All smiles for our first getaway and our first time seeing these friends in over a year! (Ad) 👉Swipe right for more pics, then check out my Travel Instastories highlights for even more fun pics from our weekend.⁣ ⁣ Great Wolf Lodge has great timing. I received an invite for our family to spend the weekend at the Great Wolf Lodge Minnesota in Bloomington, MN on the SAME DAY I scheduled my second vaccination 🙌🙌🙌. They couldn't have known about my cabin fever or my serious need to do something fun and different with my kids, but it was an opportunity I wasn't going to pass up!⁣ ⁣ I'm still super cautious about being indoors in public spaces (especially for my kids), and I was so happy to see the #PawPledge, which focuses on keeping families healthy and safe while they play together throughout the resort. It was even better than I expected! There were stations everywhere with disposable masks, wipes and hand sanitizer, masks were required everywhere except while dining or playing in the water park, and there were always attendants around making sure that all surfaces were sanitized after contact. ⁣ ⁣ We spent most of our time in the water park, and the kids used their Paw Passes to play games at the arcade, get pizza, eat treats, play the MagiQuest game and explore all the fun #GreatWolfLodge has to offer. ⁣ ⁣ I had forgotten how welcoming and entertaining a stay at Great Wolf Lodge can be, but I won’t forget it in the future! I definitely needed to escape with my family for a weekend staycation, and this was the perfect way to do it! Click the link in my bio to book your own Great Wolf Lodge getaway. You’ll have so much fun! ⁣ ⁣ @GreatWolfLodge #staycation #minnesota #thisismyminnesota #captureminneapolis #twincities #onlyinmn #mn
