Pink Guava Smoothie and Pre School Lunch // First Day of School Meal Ideas

I now have had a glimpse of what it’s like mornings before the kiddos run off to school…

Let’s not mention the fact that I didn’t shower, I was still gross from my workout, and sweet pea had a rats nest in her hair. And let’s forget about the 10 minute melt down that occurred when a certain someone realized her princess high heels could not be worn to school. I just love mornings.

Which is why I’ve realized mornings for our little fam bam have to kind of beย fun, because otherwise we will focus too much on the lack of sleep and “MOM WHERE IS MY LIPGLOSS!” And trust me, trying to find a tiny pink lipgloss container at 630 in the morning is…horrible.

So usually starting off the morning with our favorite color is a step in the right direction. Followed by a matching pink straw and all feels right in the world…

And nothing makes eating lunch at Pre School more exciting than having a pink lunch box!

Pretzels // Chocolate Banana Zucchini Muffins // Grapes //Almond Butter Princess Crown Sandwich

Our first morning before school was full of excitement and a little bit of tears, from both sides. But I’m excited for this next chapter in life and can’t wait for all the fun things that come with it!

Except for the whole liking boys thing…For some reason I feel like that’s going to happen sooner than later…

  5. Sweet kiddos ๐Ÿ™‚ Time does fly, my “baby” is 15, and quite the diva herself (she is an only, so it’s hard to avoid!) There will be a time when you appreciate the little bit of time away, so that you can catch up and get things done. My daughter was a total princess until middle school, then she went a little alternative, and now she is back to preppy girl….

  6. This smoothie is going to be next on our list to try! What a neat lunchbox with all the compartments. I love that you don’t have to use any baggies. Could you please tell me the brand or where you bought it? I would love to get one for my son who is in preschool. Thanks!

    • Hi Kenz!
      You are so sweet! I got it at pottery barn, it was their cheapest one :). But the reason I got it was because it was super easy for my toddler to open, so I knew she wouldn’t have trouble getting into her lunch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Awww!! This is too cute! Happy first day of school! That smoothie looks fantastic!!
