To say that things have been a little chaotic around here would be an understatement.

Last week was spent preparing for a Thanksgiving meal at a school that I am a board member for.
So much turkey.
So many bread rolls.

I spent a solid day packing up suitcases full of clothes and other items for our road trip to Cali.

AND then, this past weekend I took a speedy trip to San Francisco with three of my very best girlfriends.
I knew that the only "me-time" I'd be getting would be the hour flight in the air.
Not bad considering my last me-time was spent at the gyno's.
I really had to up my game this time.
And then, this happened:
That, my friends, is basically heaven on a Safeway's conveyor belt.
Did you see that I got a king size?
This mama takes her me-time seriously.
Go big or go home.

I didn't have room to pack pajamas, but I certainly made room for this. Priorities.
Once I climbed aboard the plane, I could barely wait to sit down and relax.
Without a toddler climbing on me, or screaming, or telling me that they have to go potty NOW that we are squashed between a hundred people and the bathroom is half the size of a small porta-potty.
Instead, I sat, watched the other mothers wrangling their children, and opened up my goodies.

Did you know Britney Spears has a new beau?
Or that Prince Charles can dance?
Or that angora sweaters are back in style?... eek.
I do now. Good ol' People magazine never lets me down.
The flight was over in what seemed like 10 minutes.
I suddenly wished I had decided to fly out of the country so it could have lasted a little longer.

Mama's... I think it's time for you all to take a little bit of "me-time".
You can do it right in the comfort of your own home.
Put the kids to bed, pull out a gossipy magazine, a king size candy bar.... and what you have there, is pure bliss.
You can thank me later.
By the way... how do you eat a Reese's?
I eat around the outside... that last bite... the best!

  1. Having ME TIME is always good! My husband is a huge fan of Reeses, I am not as much but it always tastes better when I snag one of his (: I guess I have never really paid attention to how I eat mine but I am pretty sure I eat them as fast as I can ;) Hope you have a wonderful week and good luck with your road trip!

  2. Sounds like you made the most of your me-time...and it definitely sounds like you upped your game from your gyno me-time lol P.S. Reese's are the best!

  3. I'm not even a Mommy & I still need ME time to function as a happy normal human being ;)

  4. How did you take pictures while eating those reese cups? I would have slammed them in my mouth and it would be a picture of crumpled wrappers.

  5. Love me some Reeces. Glad you had a great time on your girls trip

  6. Having some "me time" is critical, especially if it involves Reese's and a good magazine :)

  7. OH I totally love People. I get it almost every week! And you gave me the idea of having a Reese Peanut Butter cup while reading Magazines..ha! I don't have kids, and even I need me-time. Love it.
