Balance Bar & Yurbuds Giveaway!

Hiiii friends!

Yesterday morning was not my favorite. Seeing your little baby scream for 10 minutes during/after shots SUCKS.

Luckily she calmed down quickly while nursing and took a nice nap. But I just felt like the worst mother ever, ya know?! Like here she is chillin’ and having a good morning and then I go take her to this mean place that sticks a couple of needles into her.

I know it’s for her own good, but it is hard to watch.

We spent the rest of the day unpacking, cleaning, cuddling, playing, sleeping, and giggling.

Yep-girl recovers quickly, thank goodness!

Balance Bar Review

I had the opportunity to try some pretty yummy bars–they’re called Balance Bars, and I am a fan!

balance bar

Based off of the 40-30-30 ratio of nutrients (40% of cals from carbs, 30% of cals from protein, and 30% of cals from dietary fat), these bars boast a pretty good idea: keeping balance in the bar or snack to help you feel satisfied.

I’m not going to lie, the package arrived and I was so hungry at the time, I pretty much DOWNED the bar I grabbed (yogurt honey peanut). And it was tasty!! I was a fan right away.

Of the three kinds though, the chocolate mint cookie crunch was my fave, mostly because mint anything usually wins for moi. ;)

The bars have around 180-200 calories each, so it is a nice, portable snack to have around. And we all know that when a mama is hungry, you had better feeeeeeed her.

Oh, you didn’t know that?

Well now you do. If you want to be my friend, give me food–anytime, anywhere. ;)

Anyways. I digress.

The Balance Bar folks also have a great idea for the new year– pledge to living well by pledging on the site. <–accountability rocks!

By the way, you can stay balanced by keeping up with them on social media sites:

Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest

So the bars are delish, and they came with some other stuff too.
