Savor the Moment with Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Cookies (+ $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway)

Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Cookies

Being a mom is hard work! I give so much credit to parents that juggle work and kids, I don’t know how you do it. Sometimes I feel like there is not enough time in the day to get everything done on top of being the best mom I can be to my adorable 4 year old twins that are my world. Why do the hours in the day seem to go by so fast?

I have been fortunate to be able to stay at home and be a full time mom, but there are moments during the day that I need to turn off the noise and have a little me time. From the kids chasing each other around the house, hearing them play the same song again and again (yes, I need to “let it go”) or kids just being kids, sometimes mommy needs a moment to herself too.

I’m sure many of you can relate to this, right? #mommyneedsatimeout

My kiddos are in preschool a few hours each day. It’s the fastest two and a half hours. I drop them off at nine feeling like I have all the time in the world and before I know it it’s time to pick them up. I do miss them when they are gone, but I also love when I come back home after dropping them off at school to a quiet house.

When the kids are in school I enjoy curling up with a good book or magazine, pour a cup of coffee and just chill. I usually give myself 30-45 minutes of time to myself and the remaining time before I get the kids to do housework, run errands, etc…

Often you can find me lounging on the couch while the kids are at school with a cup of coffee and one of my all-time favorites – Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies. I remember the first time I had one; it was love at first bite. What’s not to love about these delicious cookies with an irresistible filling? These beloved cookies come in a variety of flavors such as Mint, Double Chocolate, and even Raspberry and Dulce de Leche. My personal favorite is milk chocolate, it’s simple and classic.

Have I mentioned Milano cookies are perfect for dunking? What I love to do is take my stash of Milano cookies (yes, I hide a package just for just ME) and while I’m relaxing, reading or even blogging you can find me dunking them into a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.

So go ahead and take a moment for yourself, you deserve it. And enjoy it with a tall glass of milk and a yummy Milano cookie.
