Back to school lunches with Motts - #BTSwithMotts #AD

I’m counting down about 3 weeks until the back-to-school routine comes back into play. Is it bad to say that I’m looking forward to it?? Over the next few days, I’ve been carefully preparing for the change in routine that comes with the new school year. Some of it is clothing, backpacks, lunch boxes & school supplies but most importantly I’ve been gathering items like Mott’s® Applesauce for packing a nutritious and delicious lunch.

A few times I’ve had JP eat the school cafeteria food when I’ve been short on time to make a lunch. It was convenient at first, but soon after JP began to express his dislike for the school’s food and told me he liked my home made lunches better. Since that happened, I’ve been making him healthy lunches with good things like Mott’s® Applesauce included.

Now that I have 2 kids and a crazy life, there’s never a dull moment around our house. That being said, I can use all the help I can get when it comes to taking care of my little monsters. Pre packaged food can be a god-send for making lunches easy to put together in the morning, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy lunch items like Mott’s® Applesauce.

I noticed that my local Dollar General had these on sale on the Back to School display, along with a bottle of Mott’s® apple juice on sale to boot, so I got some of each for my lunch food stash. From July 26th through August 23rd, Dollar General will have these on sale priced at $2 for the juice and $2.25 for the applesauce.

Host Gator has the best new hosting plans just for bloggers

Host Gator has the best new hosting plans just for bloggers #GatorPress #ad

I’m proud to say that I’ve carved out my spot in the blog world over the course of 4 years. I first began for the fun of it – as a tool to help market my etsy store and as time passed on I began working directly with brands. Sponsors have made it possible for me to call this a day job, and part of it is taking care of the actual “website” so everything runs perfectly.

In the beginning, I learned everything about setting up WordPress on a hosting account the hard way – trial / error and a whole lot of google. Host Gator is a hosting provider that is designed for WordPress users that don’t want to deal with all the technical mumbo-jumbo if that’s not your thing.

I’ve known of so many bloggers over the years that made the switch their free blogspot account to the more robust wordpress platform. I just started on WordPress from the beginning because the thought of migrating my website to another host seemed kinda daunting – especially if you are afraid to mess something up. That’s what awesome about host gator – should you switch over to their Optimized WordPress hosting, they will migrate your site for free!

They call it Host Gator Optimized WordPress hosting, and it automates a few things to help bloggers keep doing what they do best – create content!

Some of the benefits are auto updates of all your plugins, daily backup, malware scanning, help with SEO and many other technical details that are extremely important in keeping your site in ship shape. There’s even 24 hour live support to answer all your questions!

Now that we’re past the midpoint of summer break, I bet most moms across the country are counting the days until school resumes. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home with my kids – but having a bored 6 year old child in the lurch is never a good time.

I smell back-to-school in the air every time I visit the store and see all the displays that greet you when you walk in. Its always fun to get to pick from the colorful binders & folders to help you get organized for fall.

Lunches are no different and they are by far my favorite to make. Since JP was a toddler, I’ve always favored the bento lunches because the whimsical factor helps keep him interested. So while I’m stocking up on pens and pencils, I’ve also been stocking up on yummy treats I can include in his bento lunches.
