• My first time vending with @supermomculture at @craftsavvymarket today. I had so many moments leading up to today that I told myself that it would be a lot easier to just quit and not have a both.  But then I thought, if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.  Just remember when you have an idea that starting is half the battle.  It won’t be easy but it can be done! Thank you @craftsavvymarket for having me today.  Mr and the girls helped out so much. Thank you to everyone that came by to support! I have no clue who the little girl is on the left but she stayed with us the whole day.
  • And another ☝🏾. My precious babies. How did Harper grow up so fast! She looks 6! Slow down baby! #pictureday

It’s good to see all my hard work taking pics for the blog have paid off in these school pics. picture day hack: stick to a tried and true hair style. I tried something diff once and Peyton looked like Kid from Kid n Play. I didn’t even order any. Don’t do it!

  • We’re taking neon right into winter! I saw @funmiford with this coat on a few weeks ago and ordered it the next day.  Wouldn’t you know, it matches my @supermomculture hoodie perfectly! Consider this my winter uniform. Details and links are on the blog heytrina.com. Link to hoodie in my profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Nobody:
Me: Let me clean out all my kitchen cabinets along with everything else going on 😆. I actually enjoy decluttering (my spaces, not others). Swipe ->. My mind feels at peace when spaces are clean and organized.  Ever since @pinchofhelp did my master bathroom, I’ve been on a mission.  I’m not good like her but I stalk her IG daily for all her tips and before & afters.  My kitchen is (almost) ready for Thanksgiving! Please send positive vibes on the rest of the projects we have going on 🙏🏿. Details on the blog. Link in profile #heytrinashome #babyshopahome
  • Doing a mini extreme home makeover just in time for the holidays! Shout out to Mr for speaking my love language and getting ish done in the house (wife porn as @snackswithjack calls it 😆). This past wknd he knocked out our 20ft foyer and hung my new chandelier! It was like watching the Berlin Wall come down 🙌🏾. Also thankful that we didn’t have any incidents on this scaffold 😓. I was so happy when they picked it up cuz my nerves were so bad. We still have a lot more to do but we’re chipping away.  Make sure you watch my stories for updates.
  • Peyton as Cecilia from Decendants. Instead of a wig I used a clip in ponytail.  I may use it in the future for myself if I’m feeling feisty. She went to school as Run DMC because she was unsure if they could dress up or not.  Can your kids dress up at school?

Lunch Tips for Back to School with Walmart

August 30, 2019

This post is sponsored by RewardStyle and Walmart. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

The girls started school a few weeks ago but we’re still getting back in the routine. Harper is going more days this year which means more lunches. One of the biggest things I hear other parents struggle with is what to pack in their lunch. I headed to Walmart to pick up some lunch supplies and a cute outfit to match. I wanted to share my back to school lunch and fashion tips so you’ll be ready.

  1. Make a list. What do your kids eat outside of dinner? What are their favorite snacks, veggies, and fruit? Use the list as your foundation. It will make shopping a breeze at Walmart.

2. Let the kids shop. When we went to Walmart, I let Harper pick out her fun new lunchbox and water bottle. Picking out their supplies gets them excited for lunchtime.

3. No NUTS! So many kids have nut allergies. Let’s keep them safe by leaving the nuts at home. Walmart is filled with items that are nut-free. Harper loves PBJ so we use a No-Nut Butter. She loves it!

4. Reusable containers. Using reusable containers keep lunches fresh and easy to eat. Save the drama of smushed up soggy sandwiches and smashed crackers by using a reusable lunch container.

5. Do a test run. On the weekends, I keep the same energy for lunch. If we’re at home on a Saturday or Sunday, you will get a sandwich for lunch. If your child has never eaten a sandwich at home, it’s going to be hard to get them to start at school.

6. Grab and Go. Save some time with pre-packaged items. Harper loves yogurt and veggie/fruit pouches and graham crackers for dessert.

7. Fresh Fruit and Veggies. My girls don’t do raw veggies. If yours does, you deserve and award a special award. If I put celery or carrots in their lunches, I’ll be wasting my time and money. I opt for fresh fruit which is always on point at Walmart. My pediatrician says, if they don’t want veggies, give them fresh fruit.

8. Don’t stress. Don’t let lunch stress you out. At the end of the day, kids will eat when they are hungry. If you feel your child isn’t eating enough at lunch, make sure they get a hardy breakfast and a good dinner.

I hope these tips help take the stress out of Back to School lunches. Walmart has everything you need! Lunch boxes, snacks and super cute outfits like the one Harper’s wearing HERE. I can’t seem to get her to take this rainbow jacket off!

We wish you a great school year and happy shopping at Walmart!
