a few of my favorite snacks lately...

My favorite snacks / Oh Joy!

I am a HUGE snacker. I'm someone who can't usually finish a whole meal, but instead can snack on things throughout the day. I also find that snacking helps with my blood sugar level (aka crankiness levels) in the afternoon so I'm pretty much always looking for snacks I can keep at work, at home, and in my car to avoid getting hangry like I can sometimes! Ha. Sometimes I share my go-to snacks on Instagram stories but wanted to post them here so they can stay together in an easy-to-find list for you guys. So here goes...


a {giveaway} with instacart...(NOW CLOSED)


As a working mom of two, I feel like I have less and less time to get stuff done every day. I've talked before about using delivery services, apps, and other tools help make your life a little easier. Grocery delivery is one of those modern day conveniences that has made my life SO much easier. There are so many times when I don't have time to load up the kids and make a big trip to the grocery store...but I still need food to stock my fridge. I've used Instacart for over a year now and have been a regular customer because I can get my usual favorites from my local grocery stores (like Whole Foods or Gelson's), but it shows up at my door within 1-2 hours and allows me to do something I'd rather be doing in that time...like spend time with my kids!

Instacart is currently available in 18 U.S. cities. To celebrate its launch in Orange County, we've partnered with them to give away a $350 credit and a full year of Instacart Express (free deliveries!) to one lucky reader (a $500 value).
