Jammies + Some Coca-Cola

For longer than I can remember, I haven’t taken a real break from blogging. I know, it’s crazy. It’s crazy because we all need a break in life. We aren’t energizer bunnies, no matter how much we may feel like we are sometimes (or how much we wish that moms could just add a battery and voila!). We can mom all day long on no sleep and lots of coffee but at some point, we need a break.

And that’s okay.

Over the week of Thanksgiving, I took that much-needed break. Yeah I posted a couple of times of Instagram here and there and I had some blog posts prepped in advance but man, it felt nice to just relax and not think about anything but family (and food, of course) for once. I didn’t have to cook, I didn’t have to clean and I didn’t have to work. And it was just what I needed.

But then I got home and I got back to reality and I realized, “Oh wait. All of that time I was breaking from life, life kept going.” Photoshoots piled up, blog posts got backed up on my calendar and the Tuesday we got back home to reality, I was the definition of an “overwhelmed mom.” In fact, I was an overwhelmed housekeeper, an overwhelmed business owner, an overwhelmed chef, laundromat and all of the other duties that fall under the category of “mom.”

And the last thing I wanted to do was cook. In fact, I didn’t even think I had time to eat.

So here’s the thing -- I try really hard to cook meals when I can. And when I say “can” I really mean “want” or “have the energy to” or “have the time to” or “have ingredients to actually make dinner.” Okay, so there are at least a couple of days every week when I just cannot make a full blown dinner from start to finish and the week after Thanksgiving, that was just about every single night.

And you know what? That’s okay.

But life keeps going and my family needs to be fed so on those days when you just need a break from just one part of your mom duties, I’ve got the perfect answer for ya.

Head on over to Ralphs, snag a Diet Coke®, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar™, DASANI® and some Kroger Deli Fresh Ready to Heat Pizza. It’s never been frozen, fresh pizza that you can just throw in the oven and voila, your chef duties are complete! Now that’s a mom win if I’ve ever heard of one!

If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far in my life as a mom, it’s to not sweat the small stuff. If you don’t have the time or the energy or the care to cook a five course meal every night, then that’s okay! Focus on you, focus on your family and focus on what matters the most. Life’s too short to stress. So let’s just all let Ralphs do the chef duties for us once in awhile.

Grab a Coca-Cola™, throw on some jammies and relax. Life’s too precious not to enjoy every single moment, stress-free.
