I don’t always review yogurt. But when I do, I make sure it comes in strawberry cheesecake:
Yeah, I’m easy like that.
Müller just launched this line of dessert-inspired yogurt — Strawberry Cheesecake and Raspberry Brownie Supreme and Peach Cobbler and Dulce De Leche Delight… oh my! — and asked me to share my thoughts about it. My first thought being, “Where can I hide this in the fridge so the kids don’t eat it?” (Hey, I was like an only child; sharing is not my forte.) I will admit: I usually eat light yogurts, so my eyebrows raised when I read the label (200+ calories). However, unlike most yogurts, this Müller one actually left me feeling — gasp! — full. I didn’t graze on the kids’ leftovers for at least another hour! And, yes, it is as yummy as it sounds.
Okay, so when you think of “mom-friendly style,” and “comfortable” and “wearable,” Victoria Beckham isn’t exactly the first celebrity to come to mind. But I gotta tell you, I came across this picture of Vicky (yes, we’re on a nickname basis — I call her “Vicky” and she calls me “Who?”) last year and replicated the look because I’m a creepy celebrity style stalker. The ensemble is not only mom-friendly (I’ve worn it to MANY kids’ parties…many, many, many), but it’s also classic; it’s still totally on-trend. And, best of all, you don’t need to be a size zero to rock it.
Okay, so Vicky’s four-inch heels aren’t great for chasing after your kid after he dumps orange juice on the cat’s head (I say, um, hypothetically). However, wedges are a cute and more kid-chasing friendly option. Check out the above pair from Franco Sarto for $88.95.
You know, I’m always instructing my kids to say “thank you” and I realized… perhaps I should be thanking THEM more, as well. So in the spirit of showing my appreciation, I’m starting a tradition of writing weekly thank-you notes to my three-year-old son and five-year-old daughter for their recent efforts.
