Happy September, with a REALLY fun Giveaway!

Everywhere I look, I'm beginning to see signs of fall and it's totally making my heart smile. Yesterday I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte and today I've been busy planting mums, cleaning out the flower beds and updating our calendar. Jeremiah and Judah headed to Home Depot and picked out some paint so, that we can get our trim painted before the weather changes. Hooray for freshly painted trim!!!

This fall is going to be filled with a lot of firsts for our family. I've been loosing a little sleep over my sweet boy starting preschool. I'm so excited for him and I'm totally confident in our decision but, how can he be starting preschool already???? It seems like it was just yesterday that I took that pregnancy test in the Target bathroom. Yes, I said Target bathroom......No, I wasn't patient enough to wait until I got home.

MOPS is about to start and so is Awana. Being pregnant has come with less energy for me. By 8pm, I usually feel like I'm good for nothing and what used to be a productive time post-bedtime, has now become a time when I lay on the couch like a  bump on a log. I'm hoping that my whole no-evening energy status changes soon but, in the mean time, I'm trying to have grace with myself and enjoy these new adventures that we're about to begin.

Now......for the REALLY fun giveaway!
It's no secret that my kids and I absolutely love Erin Baker's Breakfast Cookies. In fact, I've mentioned them so many times on my blog, that it's almost embarrassing. The love started when I was in my early 20's and I'd swing into the coffee stand on my way to work. One of these healthy cookies was often my breakfast. Fast forward a few years to when I was pregnant with Judah. These cookies were a guilt-free food that always sounded good, even when I had horrible nausea. 

When Judah was about one year old, he saw me eating one and he asked for a bite. He loved them as well and now, my kids ask for them when we go grocery shopping. Since they're packed with whole grains, fiber and they're all natural, these are one of my favorite on the go meals for my kids. 

Recently we received a sample box from the awesome folks at Erin Baker's Cookies and my kids (and I), have been thoroughly enjoying the goodies. Besides making healthy breakfast cookies, in a wide variety of flavors, they also make delicious granola and miniature breakfast cookies.
Here's the good news....... YOU get to win one of these sample boxes and I know you're going to love it!

  5. I've never seen these around here, where do you get them? I don't usually eat breakfast either, unless coffee counts. But I'm very big on my kids eating breakfast though (do as I say?) and these would be perfect for grab-n-go in the morning!

  11. current fav healthy (and fast) breakfast is instant oatmeal made with milk and a little wheat bran, then when it's cooked, add cinnamon and a spoonful of peanut butter.
