Surviving Motherhood with Goldfish Crackers

IMG_4683.JPGIf you follow me on instagram, you know Ryan and I recently vacationed in Mexico sans kids with our best friends and we felt like we were young again. To say we were rejuvenated would be an understatement. Between the non-stop chaos of having two boys under five and the stress that is moving and remodeling a house, we were so drained. We spent seven days just resting by the pool and taking care of ourselves and it felt SO FREAKING GOOD!
Fast forward to the present; we’re knee deep back in the chaos. Don’t get me wrong, some of me actually missed the chaos and by day five of our vacay, we were craving seeing our babies. By day seven we were antsy and couldn’t even relax anymore. I love my life and I wouldn’t change having my babies if someone gave me a time machine.
HOWEVER, life with little ones gets crazy and you have to find things to make it a little easier. For us, one of those things is making sure to always have a snack on hand when we’re on-the-go; and my favorite snack I feel good about giving my boys are Goldfish crackers. I know there are nay sayer moms out there…moms who think they are full of bad stuff. But I think those people don’t realize this longtime favorite snack is baked with real cheese and have no artificial flavors or preservatives. In fact, all the Goldfish Colors crackers are actually sourced from plants:

  • Red Goldfishcrackers are colored using a mix of red beet juice concentrate and paprika extracted from sweet red peppers
  • Green Goldfish crackers are colored using watermelon & Huito juice concentrates mixed with extracted Turmeric; Huito is derived from South American fruit
  • Yellow Goldfish crackers are colored using extracted Turmeric
  • Blue Goldfishcrackers are colored using Huito and Watermelon juice concentrates

By now, you can probably guess that this is a sponsored post, but if you read my blog at all, you know I don’t endorse products unless I truly believe in them. The fact is, I don’t know what I’d do without Goldfish crackers because my kids love them, they’re so easy to grab and I don’t have mom guilt when giving them to my boys!
Life with kids is always busy, especially spring and summer months with sports, school and summer camps; Goldfish crackers save me from the dreaded whiny voice sound of “I’m hungry” when we are running around and busy.
Check out their Pinterest page for more ideas on how to creatively use Goldfish crackers! I was seriously blown away by all the ideas on their pin boards. Learn more about Goldfish Colors crackers here.

    I never knew that about the colored ones! Pleasantly surprised because we buy those all the time.

    We seriously do not leave the house without goldfish. Glad we are not alone!

    We love our goldfish over here too! My daughter is always asking if I have them in my diaperbag!

    These goldfish crackers are so pretty, and it’s awesome they are colored with natural ingredients. My nephews would love these! Thanks for sharing.

    • Had the best Sunday celebrating the birthday twins 👯 🎂 Today @ktrec and tomorrow, @laurenerickson1027. I’m sure glad these two babes were born 34 years ago...these girls are my sunshine on a cloudy day ❤️ ⛅️ swipe for some major throwbacks ➡️
    • Fridays are for flashbacks, so here I am 26 years young after I had just said my vows to the love of my life @ryancurtismitchell. My bouquet was so heavy, my forearms were sore for days afterwards 💐🏋🏻‍♀️😂
    • “The days are long but the years are short”
Today I’ve been reflecting a little bit on time as we approach the year 2019; just one year shy of the year 2020, which kind of boggles my mind when I sit and really think about it. 💫
How has it really been that long? I had Porter in 2013 when I was 28 years old and in so many ways it feels like yesterday. How am I in my mid thirties already? How was college graduation literally 11.5 years ago? How is it that Ryan and I have been together for 10 years and married for 6? 💫
My 92 year old grandmother often tells me she doesn’t feel 92 and I’m really starting to understand. I guess all we can do in this life is appreciate every moment because in a blink of an eye, we will wonder how that said moment was so long ago. 💫
This also makes me think about how life is too short to spend time with negative people or drink bad wine. And also I need to get some Botox. 😂🍷💉
    • I graduated from high school in 2003, so I vividly remember the days of film/photo albums. As digital cameras and social media took over, printing photos became kind of a rare thing for me to do. I’ve had so many scares where I think digital photos have been lost forever and I personally know people who have tragically lost precious baby/wedding photos 😭. So when I got the opportunity to partner up with @google using Google Photos, I was intrigued! On my phone and within literally FIVE minutes, I was able to create this album of our trip to Maui from over the summer. It was the easiest thing ever using the Google Photos app, cost about $20, and they have free standard shipping until 12/12! This album has already been a coffee table conversation piece and my kids have been fondly reminiscing our trip 😍. My new normal is definitely to have Google Photo albums! These are also awesome Christmas gifts 🎁🤩#googlephotos #photobooks #googlepartner
    • Christmas magic through their eyes ✨🎄🎅🏻
    • Yesterday we had our first parent-teacher conference for TK and it turned out to be much more thorough than I would have imagined. It was so amazing to hear feedback from his teacher about this boy we’ve been trying to mold & raise for the past 5 years. So many things said about him that made me just beam with pride, but the most profound praise was that he exhibits an unusual sense of empathy and compassion for others. If there was any one trait in this world I could hope for my kids to have, it would be that❤️ #portercurtis
    • Porter: I wish it was Saturday.
Me: Why?
Porter: So I can be here and do hugs with you all day.
Porter said this to me as I was hugging him. He went from driving me crazy (arguing with basically everything I say all day, urrrday) to making me cry with his sweet words. Hello emotional roller coaster 🤪😭😍❤️
    • When you rush into your toddler’s room because of the silence and find this 🤷🏻‍♀️. I don’t even know who you are anymore Presto 😂 #prestonhenry #thisistwo
