I’m sharing our together again family dinner with KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner as part of a sponsored post with Socialstars #youknowyouloveit
Just recently, I went on a little mini 3 day vacation. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it was to get away from the ordinary day-to-day. You honestly don’t know how much you do in your everyday life until you leave it for a couple of days and regain your sanity. If ever you have the opportunity to get away for a bit… DO IT. Don’t even think twice. Just do it!
Even though it feels nice to get away and do your own thing for a bit, coming home is always the best part. It made my heart sing to hear how happy Alea was when she and Cory picked me up from the airport. She chatted my ear off and I loved that she wanted to hear all about my vacation.
To spend a little more extra-special time with Alea when I returned from my trip, we decided to make some delicious KRAFT Macaroni and Cheese Dinner. Per Alea’s request of course. I including oranges, peas and milk. All of her favorites on one plate.
And while she enjoyed it, she told me all about her time at school, at home, and at daycare while mommy was away. I live for those sweet little talks with my little Lou. We talked about everything from playground drama, to what she was going to choose as her ice cream topping on her school field trip to Culvers. (She chose caramel by the way.)
And of course, since she knew I was visiting Hollywood, California, she requested a microphone as her souvenir. Her favorite TV show is The Voice, so naturally only a microphone from Hollywood would do!
After we shared stories of our times away from one another, shared a delicious dinner that included KRAFT Macaroni and Cheese Dinner, and giggled lots, Alea serenaded me with the song she tells me she’s going to sing when she does her blind audition on The Voice—The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow from her favorite musical, Annie.
Oh my sweet girl.
Distance most certainly makes the heart grow fonder!
And I’m singing right along with her because I’m thrilled that KRAFT Macaroni &
Cheese will no longer include artificial colors or preservatives in 2016. They’re listening to us mamas, but still keeping that classic cheesy taste we all know and love. That’s definitely something for all of us mamas to sing about!
