A Day In the Fast Lane #DelMonte #Cbias

As a mother of  three young adults you would think life is pretty simple, well this is so far from the truth.  At age 45 I still run and still take care of the 'kids'.  I cannot help myself, I do everyone's laundry when they bring it home, wash dishes when they could easily put them in the sink and I was the mom in elementary school, junior high and high school that ran there books that they left on the table up to school for them or brought their gym shorts up that they forgot.  It's just me.


I always have snacks in my purse when I am attending an event with my kids.  They are all still heavily involved in some sports or another.  We sat all day over the weekend to watch my son during a wrestling tournament, my first thought was we need to head over to Walmart to pick up snacks.  Snacks that would fit in my purse since I smuggle them in!  My husband spends plenty of money at the school on walking taco bags and Sloppy Joes so I feel just fine :-)  The plan for the weekend is two big wrestling days and a little guy tourney. I want a break before my kids start having kids LOL.

We headed off to Walmart bright and early to find some snacks. You can get my whole shopping experience that I documented through Google.  It was already starting to get busy and I was starting to stress out because I felt like I was running late.  I was the maniac walking very fast through the isles on a mission for healthy snacks. Thinking maybe some fresh veggies with dip..?   My daughter loses me as fast as she can when we get inside because I am carrying a camera.  LOL.
I made a shopping list specifically to get healthy snacks for the day but also I wanted to pick up a new dog bed and Walmart has the lowest prices for them that I can find anywhere.These dog beds were so soft I wanted to nab a couple for my dogs but decided to wait till they went on sale.  Of course my daughter wanted me to buy them, if it's not on sale she wants it.  Headed home to unpack all of the stuff from our morning adventure and pack it into my purse. Shhh.

We finally managed to make it to our destination and I was ready to sit down and watch me some wrestling. I have learned to enjoy it now so much more than when my son was competing, that was hard.  My daughter and I getting goofy..  It was a long day so I am glad I found the #DelMonte Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar to snack on.  This is a perfect snack with just the right amount of sweetness.  I was able to throw my son a couple cups in between matches.  I always encourage him to eat something that will give him a nice quick burst of energy.
