How I am staying Intouch With Family and Friends

Hey sports moms, has fall practices started for your family yet?  My daughter’s cheer schedule came out last week and it has me sitting on a field for 2 hours a night 4 nights a week.  Now I love to support her and I am fully decked out in team colors and spirit sticks on game days and at competitions, but sitting on those bleachers at every practice can be the epitome of boredom.  I tried working from the field last year but it drained my data quickly and I realized I don’t have the concentration to work as my daughter is getting thrown in the air and my son and getting tackled.  Then there was social media and other mindless games that I tried, I was still bored and feeling kind of guilty about the chunk of time I was pretty much wasting because I am not allowed on the field.  Then this week I downloaded Words With Friends 2 and now I am totally hooked!

My New Favorite On The Go Snack as a Sports Mom

On the Go Snack for Busy Moms

Delicious On The Go Snack for Busy Moms

It’s that time of year again, football and cheerleading registration time! As a sports mom, my busiest time of year is from mid-July through the beginning of November. My kids participate in countless activities and sports including guitar lessons, dance classes, karate, and more, but nothing compares to the rigorous schedule I have as a twin mom to a football player on one side of the field and a cheerleader on the other side. From midsummer till the end of fall we are on the sideline 3 nights a week and every weekend so on the go snacks are a must for me.

I have recently fallen in love with Blue Diamond Nut-Thins®! I have been trying all the yummy flavors of these thin and crispy crackers and have enjoyed every single flavor so far. They have been a perfect go to whether I am sitting at my desk and needing something to munch on or heading out with the kids and need an on the go snack that I can toss in my bag.

Easy on the go snack at work

Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins are a delicious snack that is crunchy and crispy like a potato chip, but sturdy enough for dips and toppings. This is what has me hooked, I love that I can eat them with hummus, a veggie dip, or all alone if I am just craving something crunchy. Plus they are made with Real Blue Diamond® Almonds, are wheat and gluten free, and contain no artificial flavors so I am able to snack guilt-free and feel good about serving them to my family when they ask for a snack.

I am sure these will be stocked in my cabinets and car throughout football season and you will see me with a box in hand and a bowl of hummus on the bleachers at every practice. Having a yummy snack makes my time on those bleachers a lot more enjoyable, especially as the season runs on and all us sports moms are watching our calendars to see how many more weeks we have left.

Don’t just be a Soccer Mom, Be a Sideline Hero!

I never imagined myself becoming a soccer mom, a sports mom, or anything of the sort.  I was going to be the cool mom, or so I thought.  Who knew back then that what would end up being the coolest in my children’s eyes would be a full-fledged, minivan driving, lawn chair carrying, snack packing, sitting on a field all day cheering, soccer mom!  So that’s what I am, every Saturday morning I help strap on shin pads, lace up cleats, and get my players down to the field, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.  Seeing the passion in their eyes as they play their games, and watching the friendships and bonds they make with their teammates and coach is incomparable.
