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.

    • Sip sip hooray it’s Friday! This pic was from my trip to Napa, but I can tell you with 💯 certainty I’ll be sipping on this same wine over the weekend. We leave for Tahoe on Sunday and @rombauervineyards Sauvignon Blanc will be coming with me 🤗🍷🙌🏻.
    • Raise your hand if your date nights are getting a little stale doing the same thing over and over 🤪🙋🏻‍♀️. I’m personally getting bored and am ready to mix it up, which is why I was excited to be invited to the Broadway at Music Circus dress rehearsal for The Drowsy Chaperone last night! I was literally cracking up the whole time...the actors are all so talented and you get to see the legendary @brucevilanch live on stage 🤗. The production officially opens tonight! Grab your tickets now Sac peeps...the show only runs until 7/14! #broadwaysacramentoambassadors

    • In a food and wine coma over here 😂. Had the best weekend in Napa with my best babes. Having these types of breaks is just what we need to keep ourselves sane. Recharging is so key when it comes to being a mom of littles. Grateful to live so close to such a stunning region 🙌🏻 #visitnapavalley
    • Parade, BBQ, swimming and fire works. Loved spending the 4th with my people in our charming neighborhood where the tight knit community is what brings people here 🇺🇸💥. #lovewhereyoulive #ardenpark #fishbowl
    • He’s always down to take photos with me in a vineyard 😍 #keepinghim
    • Still reminiscing my dinner in the vineyard last night by @oakridgewinery! They were gracious enough to have me attend their first annual Wine Maker’s Dinner and let me tell ya, it was a night to remember 🙌🏻. The food/wine pairing was done so perfectly and the food/menu was phenomenal! This winery produces some quality wine, that’s for sure😋. Check out their website to see all the different brands that come from @oakridgewinery in Lodi, CA. Can’t wait to try more! #hosted
    • You better BRIElieve there‘s a cheese board in my weekend plans! Side note, this gorgeous cheese board/lazy susan was only $20 at @homegoods 💁🏻‍♀️
    • It’s not always easy shopping as a 34 year old. So many things I see I think “I would be into this if I was 23” or “of course crop tops come back now that I’ve birthed 2 babies” or “that would be cute if I was 70” 😂😂. So when i find a fabulous romper like this one, I share. I call this my mullet romper. Business in the front, party in the back. Swipe to see 😆🤷🏻‍♀️
    • Love the wine you’re with 👯‍♀️🍷 @haileyheller
