10-Minute Morning Routine for a Busy Mom

Life is busy as a mom! I always seem to have minimal time for myself to get ready. There are always more important things to do like change or feed Oliver or help Adalyn change into her 12th "beautiful dress and high heels" for the day. Plus, let's be honest, spending a lot of time getting ready has never been a big priority for me. I would much rather be spending time with family, cooking (and eating), blogging, going on walks, etc.

I do like to look nice so that I feel good about myself, so I like doing a super quick routine in the morning with AVEENO® products from Walmart. Some days, it is fine to stay in workout clothes for a while, but I do like to get dressed sometimes with a bit of makeup. The first photo in this post was a before and after taken after working in our 18 inches of water flooded basement for 15 hours straight- I needed a little TLC for sure (and sleep!).

Any time of day, someone is eating a snack. Adalyn wakes up asking for snacks. I get super munchy mid-morning and later afternoon. Troy likes late-night snacking. One thing that we all have in common is that we love tons of snacks. I have been wanting to make my own homemade snack mix for awhile and finally got around to making it when I had some delicious salty snacks on hand.

We love all things buffalo flavored which is how I decided to make this mix that flavor. You can use whichever snacks that you have on hand- you can use more cereal, any shape of pretzel, different kinds of nuts, etc. Whatever you like as long as it is pretty crunchy should be fine. At the last minute, I decided to add in my Roasted Chickpeas which I know that you all love because it is one of my most popular recipes ever on the blog. It adds some protein and fiber to the mix and is the perfect crunchy treat.

We are absolutely loving the fall season so far. The mornings are so chilly and we are bundled up in our robes and pajamas. By afternoon, it is warm enough to wear short sleeves and even shorts outside. Michigan weather is totally crazy! We have switched our days around a bit from the summer. In the summer, we often go for a walk early morning to beat the heat. Now that the mornings are cold, we wait till at least 11 AM to get outside to play.
