Mama’s Time Out

As a new mom to baby #2 {can I still call myself a new mom when I’ve been a mom for almost 20 months, but have a new baby?} I have really come to appreciate any me time I can squeeze in during any given day. No matter the time.

With a nursing newborn AND a very active toddler, this is easier said than done and seriously involves some nearly perfect planning on my part. I spend a good part of my time really planning out my days – I’m a total planner. From mapping out my blog posts to menu planning to even seeing when I can sneak in a little mama time. This could be anywhere from a little mani/pedi action to a little mama’s time out movie date in the middle of the day!

Seriously, carving out an hour or so that I can have to myself {and actually stay awake} is no joke at this point in my life. With a newborn who is up every few hours to eat, planning to do anything at night is never really successful because more often than not when little man goes down for his “longer sleep” through the night, I’m usually not far behind him!


I think aside from a day at the spa – which I seriously need in my life – my favorite way to zone out and de-stress would no doubt have to be sitting back and just relaxing while watching a favorite movie and enjoying a few favorite snacks. {Sometimes those snack choices are healthier than others – depends on my mood!}

I love to sit and put my feet up, snack on a favorite bite or two and just enjoy a little time to myself – it’s pretty amazing when I can time both boys naps accordingly, which is going to be harder and harder as Graham gets older! But I plan to enjoy it while it lasts!


I was so excited when I had the chance to check out Pitch Perfect 2 {which I picked up on it’s release day at Walmart!} during my mama’s time out last week! I am a big fan of the Pitches so it was so fun to enjoy a little wind down time with some fun ladies + enjoyable tunes!

Head to Walmart to grab the exclusive Pitch Perfect 2 Blu-Ray/Soundtrack combo pack. Soundtrack includes some of your favorite songs from Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 (while supplies last)
