Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Mint Chocolate Moment

Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Mint Chocolate Moment
Some days we need a moment just to breathe, to relax and to savor our favorite flavors.  If you love chocolate and mint, there is something perfect from Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Cookies, create a Milano Mint Chocolate Moment for yourself, and rediscover what it means to take time for you! If you love chocolate and mint, create a Milano Mint Chocolate Moment for yourself, and rediscover what it means to take time for you!These last couple of months have been rather hectic and stressful.  The holidays are always busy, trying to get things done for everyone in our family.  Once January rolls around, the New Year begins and school starts up again.  We’ve tried to get back into our regular routine, however, Mother Nature has had other ideas giving us multiple snow-days and late starts.  Not only does this make it hard on a tired and weary 1st grader, it makes it especially hard on his mommy that works from home. Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookiesI love being a mommy, wife, and blogger, but sometimes it can be overwhelming keeping up with the many roles we all play! That’s when it’s important to pause and take a moment to appreciate yourself… even in the midst of everyday chaos. And Pepperidge Farm Milano gives me the perfect chance to savor a moment to myself. Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies Things get rushed, too many things get scheduled, and we end up running ourselves ragged trying to “fit it all in.”  Sometime I find myself asking, “When do I fit in some time for me?”  At that moment, I dropped what I was doing, and had a Milano Mint Chocolate Moment for myself!  I went to the pantry, took out these delicious Milano Mint Cookies, and made a Mint Hot Chocolate just for ME!  Do you ever make things just for yourself?  Yeah, me either.  For me, its always something for my family or for my son…never do I make a special snack or treat that is just for me. I turned off all the screens and noise, sat down at the table with my Mint Milano cookies and mint hot chocolate, and enjoyed one delicious bite at a time! Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies My Milano Mint Chocolate Moment was wonderful!  The chocolate and mint sandwiched between the crisp, delicious cookies paired perfectly with the creamy, minty hot chocolate.  One of my favorite ways to enjoy a Milano cookie is to dunk it! Pepperidge Farm® Milano® cookies Once I finished my snack, I found myself asking, “Why don’t I do this more often?”  So from that point, I’ve decided, at 2pm at least a couple days a week, I’m going to have a Milano Moment, just for myself.  A quiet time, where I can reflect on my day, and appreciate all the wonderful things that are happening in my life.  I’ve discovered that once I have a few minutes to take a breath, I’m able to have a bit more clarity.  I’m able to regroup, re-focus and move forward with everything that is yet to be accomplished.  Watch out world, here I come! How do you like to take a moment for yourself?  Do you find that once you take a breath, you’re ready to get back out there and seize the day?  Leave me a comment, and let me know.  If you leave a comment, you’ll be entered to win a $100 Visa gift card!  Entry Instructions: No duplicate comments.

  24. I like to take a moment for myself with a a few homemade chocolate dipped potato chips right out of the freezer. I love to just sit back and enjoy the salty and sweet combination!

  26. Here is my tweet:
  27. I've started to do the same thing. Stop in the middle of the day, make a cup of tea and catch up on some reading. It leaves me refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day.
  28. I love mint Milanos. We used to buy them ALL THE TIME before my husband had to start eating gluten-free. I wish they had a gluten-free version :)
  29. Yes! It always helps to step back and breathe for just a second or two. One of the greatest lessons of having children is learning to shower first thing in the morning even when it seems impossible. You need that second or two to catch your breath before beginning the day.
  31. I need to have a Milano moment, too!! Looks so delicious and I love that cup and saucer!
