Favorite after school snack

Sometimes after school snacks can be tricky for everyone.  As moms, we want the snack to be healthy whereas kids would prefer more sugary choices.  (right?!?!?)  I do my best teach and guide my children about nutrition and healthy choices, but boy can it be challenging at times especially with Hattie who is very picky.  Gracie and I have found a great snack that makes everyone happy and it’s super easy.  It is a chocolate banana sushi roll.  In the midst of her wanting and needing more independence (that’s a whole other post), she loves that she can make it all on her own.

note:  I do the final cutting with the sharp knife 😉

Ingredients:  1. Your favorite slice of bread   2. Your choice of chocolate spread (we use the peanut butter and co. Dark Chocolate Dreams.)    3. Banana


1) Place your bread on a cutting board (leave or remove the crust).

2) With a rolling pin roll out your bread to make it flat and smooth.

3)  Spread the desired amount of chocolate spread on the bread.

4) Cut a banana in half and roll it up in the bread.

5) With a sharp knife, cut it into pieces like sushi rolls.

My New Year’s BLOGGING Resolution

Since I’ve shared my blog address on Instagram, I wanted to share this post:

I’m not big on New Years Resolutions and I rarely ever make one, but this year was different, I really wanted to challenge myself to do something I’ve always wanted to do, so I did.  Since reading and following different blogs is a part of my everyday life, I finally decided to become a part of the blogging world and start my own.  This has been a huge step out of my comfort zone and a major learning process in so many ways.  I’ve wanted to do this for quite sometime, but honestly I’ve been scared.  I worried about what I would blog about and what others would think of me. Did I have anything valuable to offer or would I inspire anyone?!?!  I’ve changed the direction of my blog several times because of these fears.  Another thing I’ve struggled with is my blog looking perfect,  but as my husband reminded me,  I just started this process and that I should be proud of what I already have learned. (Literally, I’ve googled and googled and YouTubed so many tutorials to get this set up and there is still so much more to learn) so with all that, I am proud!  And I’m so excited to share with everyone about what I know best, and that’s my life! Like thepaigeedit says, this is my place for me to document my family, favorite finds and to share all the things I love.  So WELCOME!!!!

*A special thanks to my friend Bethany for helping me and always encouraging me to keep moving forward.
