Our #Snackation Adventure Awaits

This post has been sponsored by The J.M. Smucker Company. All opinions are completely my own. #Snackation

Lil Man and I are never far from a snack bag. We are huge snackers, and we take snacks with us everywhere. Hubby found that out the hard way when Lil Man was a young toddler, and he didn't pack snacks for an outing. With that lesson learned, we truly don't leave the house without a snack of some kind.

Our summer has been filled with outdoor picnics on the deck, the backyard, the playground, the pool, and the local amusement park. And because we are always on the go go go, I prefer to have snacks that are nutritious as well as easy to pack and carry.

Our local Walmart makes a great #Snackation destination. With school just around the corner, Lil Man and I are packing in as many fun summer adventures as we can. We went to our local Walmart to scope out some great snacks for our upcoming adventure.

With so many choices, the hardest part was choosing what we wanted, but we finally settled on Smucker's Fruit Fulls, Jiff To Go Dippers, and Smucker's Uncrustables.

Apparently we needed a snack after shopping since we took a little snack break in the car before going home. :) 

But we are prepared for our next adventure! As I was recently hiking, I found a really great spot to have a picnic and wade in a local creek. I think this will be something that Lil Man and I will truly enjoy. 

Stay tuned ... he's never been wading before ... I'm curious to see how he likes it.

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
