I have dedicated this year as the year I give focus on me and I’m so proud of it. I’m a mom of 2 boys, I support my husbands growing career, I’m involved in a few local organizations, and I work from home with toddlers at my feet. I have my hands full, but so does every other woman, right? 2018 is the year of me! A year to give myself grace, the year I allow myself to do the things I want to do outside of my role as mom, the year I run a half marathon, the year I give myself permission to dive back into the things I enjoy, and most importantly – monthly me time. Today I’m sharing some me time in my favorite jammies with you, my online besties.
Today I give you permission to eat the best snack ever (I recommend COOL WHIP Mix-Ins, Oreo) from bed in your favorite jammies with your favorite series playing and why you should plan to do so monthly.
Taking time for myself wasn’t an easy thing to transition into it. It takes time to grant yourself permission to monthly me time sessions. If you’re a busy mama, give it a bit of time, the guilt will subside some as you practice this new habit. Here are 3 reasons why you should put monthly ultimate me time sessions on your calendar:
- You deserve it. Hands down this is the best reason why, but I’ll give you more for persuasion.
- It’s proven that if you put things on your calendar or fancy planner you’re more inclined to hold to those meetings or appointments. Treat your ultimate monthly me time sessions like you would an important work meeting and hold yourself to it.
- You get to sit down and enjoy a sweet treat without interruption, or sharing, or rushing before you start your next task.
Many times we find excuses of why we can’t do something for ourselves and we “cancel”. It has taken me a few years to figure it out, but cancelling on me isn’t working and isn’t fair to the entire family when I do so. Who says I don’t deserve me time from bed with COOL WHIP Mix-Ins, Oreo in hand?
So now that you’ve decided you truly do deserve me time and have it on your calendar it’s time to stock up on treats just for you. Gasp! Did I say a sweet, guilt-free treat just for you to enjoy?
We are BIG Oreo fans, so when I heard about Oreo Mix-Ins I knew I found my monthly me time treat of choice. Oreo Mix-Ins is not just for baking and adding to pies, y’all. This stuff is meant to be eaten straight out of the tub or bowl during me time… I’m pretty certain it was created just for us to eat alone whenever we want. Light, airy indulgent treat without all the calories- count me in!

You’re welcome for helping you find your ultimate me time treat.
The only other thing to plan is your movie or TV binge watching schedule. I have a comedy and sci-fi suspense preference so I have a list of award winning shows in the bank to watch! It can be hard to watch your show or movie preference with littles around or when in the company of those who prefer a different genre. Now you get to make a list of the shows you’ve been wanting to watch and the movies you miss watching on repeat all without guilt. Be the remote boss, girl.
So curl up on the couch or in the bed and soak up all of your favorite things each month. Fill your cup (and bowl), because you need this free time to be your best you.
Relive your favorite shows, binge watch the latest trending shows, rent that movie, and get in the relaxation zone. I’ll meet you at episode 3 with my COOL WHIP Mix-Ins, Oreo in hand.
