This past week…

sponsored

The weather has been gorgeous here lately.

Bad for the allergies, but good for the spirits for sure!

 

We’ve been super busy lately here..between the kid’s sports practices and games, to trying to get some Spring house stuff done…and ALL THE WEEDS!

So really I’ve been trying to take a bit of time in the afternoons to just sit down with the kiddo’s when they come home from school, have a snack and just take a breath.  It’s hard sometimes to shut your brain off, but even if it’s for just a little bit of time, it totally helps.

PHILADELPHIA  has challenged me to take a bit of time for myself everyday for 100 days… “100 Days of Delight”… And they supplied me with some of their new PHILADELPHIA Snack Delights to help make my afternoons sweeter!

Have you guys tried the Snack Delights?  OMGSOGOOD.  Crazy amazing good.  They come in flavors like Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, Cinnamon and Caramel.

So I started the challenge with this…

phillyI dipped a graham cracker into the Milk Chocolate Snack Delights…and topped it with Mini Marshamallows!

It’s like a S’mores without the fire.  So yummy!!  And my kids loved it almost as much as I did!

Treats like this are going to make my afternoons a LOT sweeter.

 

 

Some other stuff I did this past week…

busI went on a class field trip with my 2nd grader.  School buses are officially the worst.  Also, my kid didn’t even want to sit next to me.  Excuse me why I go cry a thousand rivers.

 

Speaking of my kids.  I also help out in their library occasionally.  I use it as an excuse to wear stupid shoes

sperrysSparkles, Sperry’s and Leopard all in one place.  I’m a fashion criminal.

 

I ate stuff like this adorable cone from Trader Joe’s…

And also had to sample this cake.

rocherGood, but a little dry.  Still working on this one.

 

I also spilled Scentsy wax all over my floor.  Annoying.

scentsyAfter making an enormous mess with a spatula, some windex and hot water, my husband walked into the room and told me to use my hair dryer.

Well, it worked, FYI.

 

I enjoyed gorgeous sunsets.

Had a day here…

with the family…

Anyhow, hope this week is as good as the last!

Looks like you’ve been enjoying some yummy treats!

Odd, my girlfriend just told me she spilled Scentsy wax all over her bedroom carpet. Must be something in the air (other than Scentsy).

Wishing you a lovely week.

LOL when I was in second grade, I did the same thing to my mother and she hasn’t let me live it down. I also shouted really mean things at her. Yeah, she never came with me on another field trip ever again.

I was at the Yankees stadium last week too. Gorgeous weather for a ball game. Cannot wait for the cake recipe. It looks great.

If you add a little sour cream to the cake it should be a bit more moist.
