I didn't have the right extension installed. 

I appreciate you guys being there for newbies like me, and I'm looking forward to contributing
My knowledge into the forum as it grows.

You don't need to be logged in at FE to see the frontend editing options. 
You just need to be logged in at BE from same domain and use same browser (your BE session will be checked) for logged BE and your FE.
Possible way, you don’t see a FE editing options is, that your CSS may somehow hide them. I remember, I've had that in one of websites, where HTML/CSS guy was using position:absolute a lot, and header of the website became on top of mentioned black button, that activates the editing. Try to deactivate all of your CSS for a while and check, what you see.

And I assume, that you installed 'feeditadvanced' extension and read it's manual, especially this section: [1]
