If you’ve been a reader of this little blog for awhile, you know our mornings can be a little crazy and I usually opt for convenience when it comes to breakfast for my girls. Convenience and routine, that is. The problem is that my girls are starting to get sick of the same ol’ same ol’ breakfast foods which has left me searching for options that are just as easy, just as affordable, and just as delicious. Enter, Pepperidge Farm Swirl Oatmeal Bread. As silly as it sounds, one of the things that seems to take forever for us in the mornings is waiting on the toaster (why does it feel like it takes so long?!) so one of my favorite parts of the Pepperidge Farm Swirl Oatmeal Bread is that it’s delicious without toasting since it comes in Apple Cinnamon Swirl Oatmeal or Maple & Brown Sugar Swirl Oatmeal flavors. Winning!

It. Has. Pockets. Three little words that immediately make any dress 10 times better. Needless to say, when I found that today’s swing dress has pockets after I bought it, I was more than a little excited. Anyway, now that Labor Day has passed, (making way for fall fashion), this Oxford Swing Dress from Free People is giving me all the feels. I love the flowy cut, embroidery detail, and cut-out back. And that it has pockets, of course. I also love that it’s fully lined and that the sleeves have elastic at the wrists that isn’t too tight! I paired it with my new favorite booties: perforated leather peep-toe with heel cut-outs from by Dolce Vita. I added a hat, choker, pendant necklace, and some sunnies for an extra bit of fall flair.

Are my kids the only ones who come home starving every afternoon like they haven’t eaten in months? Just mine? I’d like to say that I give my children an I-grew-it-myself-in-the-backyard-and-we-harvested-it-together-as-a-family-and-had-a-STEM-lesson-while-doing-so-snacks but that just isn’t our reality. Reality is that I give my girls snacks that are affordable, delicious, and better-for-you than the many junky alternatives out there. I recently shared how we prepared my daughter for Pre-K and what a day in our lives look like during the school year so today I want to share some of our favorite snacks for after school.

This may sound is cliche, but where does the time go?! It’s crazy to think that summer is over, A has already been in Pre-K for 3 weeks and E has been in KidsPlay (our church’s Mom’s Morning Out program) for 2 weeks! This new season of our lives has come with some adjusting (mainly mine) and we’ve had to learn how to rework our days. I’ve shared what my typical days looked like when I was working full-time and what my mornings were like when I first started being home full-time, so I thought I should share what these new days look like now that we have yet another new schedule to which we have to adapt. I’m sure it’s no surprise that PlaytexBaby products are still a huge part of this PlaytexMom’s days.

Have you ever been so overwhelmed by everything that needs to be done that you feel somewhat paralyzed and do nothing? If you saw my Instagram stories this week, you know that I was in that place. It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes I get super overwhelmed. I think all moms do, right? The source of this week’s anxiety stems from our stuff being returned from our house fire and needing to be put away/organized plus deadlines, appointments, emails, and regular home-keeping things such as grocery shopping and whatnot. Life is crazy sometimes, am I right?! Thankfully, my mental paralysis didn’t last long and I was able to snap out of it. I’ve teamed up with Perrier to share how I deal with being overwhelmed.
