I keep losing my ID

Traveling with your kids can be fun but it can also be stressful. You have to bring so mic he stuff with you. When Noah was a baby, I became an expert packer. I had to fit everything in the allotted suitcases. I didn't want to bring too many suitcases because two suitcases and a stroller is hard to manage at the same time. I remember once I kicked one of the suitcases. Usually if you do curbside the handlers will help you if you have too many things. I am so happy that now Noah can carry things and pull his own suitcase. 

It's important to have good packing skills when you travel. My personal problem is looking for id. I always find it and then lose it in my purse because my hands are full. I almost always travel in my pajama pants. I never seem to have pockets. When we came back from Florida last time, I thought  it was in my purse. I looked all over. I thought I lost it at the store when I bought cold medicine. I almost called Walmart and asked them if someone turned it in. I had an idea. I looked in my laptop bag and there it was. I was so relieved.

 I have a horrible habit of not using my wallet. My wallet is older than Noah. I really need a new one. I love Strawberry Shortcake but I need a grow up wallet. I really like the JimmyCASE because it's slim and you can fit a lot of cards in it. I didn't carry a purse until I was a mom. I just threw stuff in my pockets. Once I realized a diaper and a bottle wouldn't fit, it was time to get something else. Sure the big diaper bag worked for a while.  It would be great to have something slim for those times when I don't want to carry my purse. 

I would love to have one of those iPhone wallet cases. I always have my phone so I would always have my wallet with me. It would be really convenient to have everything all together. My sister's birthday is coming up and she has two adorable kids. She could really use an iPhone 7+ Card Holder. She's got two young kids, so she's like Wonder Woman. She's an amazing mom and sister. I know anything that makes her life easier is awesome. I on the other hand can run around like a chicken with it's head cut off sometimes. I might not lose my identification at the airport if it's attached to my phone. 

Kid Free Travel Idea

If you are lucky, and have family close to you, you might have the opportunity to take a kid free vacation. A lot of people enjoy riding motorcycles. It is a dream of many people to drive cross country on your bike. You get to experience the US differently than driving in the car. You feel the wind on your body and can even go off the beaten path. You might even meet some new friends who are also biking across country.

 It would definitely be a trip to remember. It would be a great bonding experience with your spouse or your friends. You don't even have to have a route mapped out. You can go where ever you want. You can even pretend that you aren't a responsible adults with a job or that you have to help with homework. 

You can even buy new motorcycle apparel. They have some really cute motorcycle jackets for women. You don't have to wear a guys jacket. Use it as a chance to express yourself. Don't forget to get a helmet too. Remember that you need to replace your helmet every so often to make sure it's in top condition. Look for cracks and make sure it still fits you. You can get a discount motorcycle helmet online. It's really important to protect yourself. 

What if you don't have a bike? You can find a discounted motorcycle that you can buy. My neighbors go riding on the weekends and it looks like a lot of fun. You could even go to a bike week. There's one in Laconia NH that I always hear fun things about. It would be awesome if you found one and made friends and make it a tradition and do it every year. 

If you don't have family near by, maybe work something out with a friend where trey keep your kids and then you keep theirs so they have a chance to go in a kids free vacation too. 

Sandwich Bros. Review

Mornings for my family can be hectic especially when we have to get ready for school. I am honestly not a morning person but I have gotten better since I became a mom. Eating breakfast can really make your day better. It is hard when you have little time to eat. You usually have a little time so you grab a bowl of cereal or donuts. Both fill you up but you you seem to get hungry again mid morning. I am really trying to eat breakfast this year every morning. I am also trying to eat better. It's hard because mornings are stressful. 

I had the opportunity to try out some sandwiches from Sandwich Bros. They are made by Kangaroo Brands. I was already familiar with Kangaroo Pockets. When my cousin Susie was in college we used to go on picnics together and eat flat bread sandwiches. I would have cheese and garlic powder in mine. It's so good. Susie and I decided to go paddle boating once during a picnic. It didn't go well but we survived.

Sandwich Bros makes burgers and chicken sandwiches too. I love how easy they are to make. I am often eating while working. Sometimes I just don't feel like cooking. I can easily make a Sandwich Bros Angus Burger and go on my way. I like that it uses flat bread instead of a bun. Microwaving a Sandwich with a bun can be tricky. It usually ends up with a hard spot. Flat bread is delicious too. You don't fill up on bread too. You can have a yummy flat bread sandwich without having to buy fillings. Although you should pick up some Kangaroo pockets too because they are so versatile. You can find Sandwich Bros. at select grocery stores. I found them at Kroger.
