Making time for yourself can be hard during the busy school year. See how I am treating myself to more during back to school with a little help from Target. Post Sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are 100% my own.
I know that for most stay-at-home moms that when the school year starts back up they battle with some mixed emotions. They are glad for a little alone time and some peace & quiet during the day, but also are sad that the summer fun with the kiddos has come to an end. In fact, the house can sometimes become painfully silent during the 7-8 hours that the kids are in school each day. But at this point in my SAHM journey, I am not battling with that predicament just yet. In fact, with a little one at home (all day, 24/7) and my teenage son back in school and running cross country, any alone time or peace & quiet that I somehow managed to enjoy here and there during the summer months comes to an abrupt end. I have to make those moments to treat myself to a little peace and relaxation happen.
Last week I headed to my local Target to treat myself to some end of summer/back to school goodies. This mama hasn't purchased new make-up for herself in a good while, so I decided it was about time for a pretty new blush and a perfect-for-fall eye shadow palette. And for those rare days when I would be able to sneak away for a few moments of me time, a relaxing lavender facial mask and some Magnum Double Caramel Ice Cream Bars... ;)
I totally took advantage of the Buy 3, Get 1 Free in-store Target offer (valid from now until 9/5/15), and also picked up a few of my family's favorite Unilever ice cream treats like Klondike Bars & Popsicles so I wouldn't suffer any mom guilt. ;) But the Magnum Double Caramels were all mine. They get their own special hiding place in the freezer behind the bags of frozen veggies where no one else in my house would ever look. Shhhhhhh...
Give me 15 minutes, a relaxing facial mask, & a Magnum Double Caramel Ice Cream Bar, and I am in my happy place, folks. :)
