• After going to Detroit for 24hrs last wknd, coming back to get the girls ready for school on Monday, Harper’s Taco Tuesday birthday celebration and shipping orders, mama tide (tired). Why must I always do the most?! I guess I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t 😆. I can’t wait till the weather cools off so I can rock my @supermomculture sweats full time 🙌🏾. Grab your hoodie & matching sweats cuz y’all know when the temp drops they’re going fly 💫🦸🏾‍♀️ Link in profile
  • Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes. Harper had a great action packed day. She still has a big birthday party next week with her school friends. I hope this doesn’t turn her into one of those Birthday people who celebrate their birthdays all month long 😂. If that’s you raise your hand 🙋🏾‍♀️ 😂.
  • Happy 4th Birthday Harper Mae! Doesn’t it seem like I just had her?! Harper is such a joy.  She’s the funniest little person I know.  She’ll be sweet but will go off in a second if you do something wrong.  She will even go off on someone for her big sister (and Peyton let’s her 😆). She loves music and drawing. We enjoy watching her grow daily. I’m excited to watch this little girl shine! She requested Taco Tuesday dinner tonight and her party is next weekend. So the party will continue.
  • My squad secured new bags! We’re rocking our new @zenkoleather pink croc bags. #Zenko makes quality leather bags for the whole family, including the man in your life. Don’t tell Peyton or Harper buy I may borrow their bags when I need something small 🤫. I’m always happy to share a fashion moment with my girls.  Details on our outfits on the blog.
  • I keep forgetting I have a beautiful bathroom to take mirror selfies in 😆. I wanted to share these #targetstyle sweats that match my neon green @supermomculture hoodie. Couple PSAs. Large neon hoodies are sold out. Denim hats and beanies (only a few left) are in stock. Also, check the size charts.  Hoodies and tees are unisex which means men sizes.  I’m wearing a medium in this pic. I normally wear a large in women’s for my 👀. All sales are final. If I do returns I would have to charge shipping both ways. I know y’all don’t want that. If you have questions please leave them below or dm. Thanks for all the love and support #supermomculture
  • Happy Birthday to my mom in heaven. Last year we celebrated her 80th birthday. I remember her saying she wanted to do it big because she never had a party and she said this might be the last one. I’m grateful that she was able to witness how much everyone loved and adored her.  This was the last time I physically saw her. We flew back the next day. I miss her so much!
  • It’s back to school time and this #TBT pic by @creativesoulphoto has been in heavy rotation. I think Peyton was like 3 or 4.  I wasn’t even pregnant with Harper. Still one of my faves. #creativesoulphoto #creativesoul
  • Mood when all kids have went back to school! Why does it feel like they are only there for 45 mins before you have to head back to pick them up 🤷🏾‍♀️. #Supermom 🧢 are back in stock.  Claim yours before they are gone! Link in profile.
  • I’m taking my talents international with @momredefined #momentinparadise in Cancun, Mexico in January! We’ll get to relax, have sessions, drink & eat...w/o kids!  We deserve this! I’ve met most of these women and person and we’re all a good time 😆. Grab your mommy friends or roll solo (we won’t bite) come on! Reserve your spot with $75 (deposit) before Sept 15 use code TRINA75. Link in profile. Who’s rolling out with me? 🙋🏾‍♀️ 🍹 ✈️ ☀️
  • I went dressed as a zebra to hang with my friend and fave designer @suakokobetty at @29rooms. I’ve been on the move so much it was cool to just hang out. I’ve been going hard but I have a feeling something amazing is on the horizon. Until it happens you can find me cleaning my house and up to my eyeballs in laundry. 💫 Outfit was $10 at HM
  • #AD What do your kids eat for lunch? It can be a struggle. With help from @walmart, I’m sharing #backtoschool lunch tips. Link in profile for tips and this cute outfit Harper is rocking from #walmart or use @liketoknow.it . #gobackbig http://liketk.it/2Eyl2 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKkids

Tips for Snacking on the Go with Mott’s

January 13, 2014

You never think about how important it is to have snacks readily available until you have a child.   Leaving the house with out snack is the main ingredient for a disastrous outing.  Ever been at the mall a little longer than expected right before lunch or dinner? Or, attend a birthday party where they only serve cake?  When this happens you end up feeding your child fast food options.  I would rather save that option for emergency (or lazy) situations. 

  • Make a list of what snacks your child likes to eat.  Don’t introduce a new snack while on the go.
  • Pick snacks children can eat by themselves.   Skip snacks that require utensils.
  • Find snacks that are packaged in convenient snack size portions.   Mott’s Snack & Go applesauce comes in small squeezable pouch.  If your child’s snack of choice doesn’t come in snack size, place snack size portions in resealable baggies.  
  • Pack a variety of snacks.  You never know what mood your child is in.  
  • Choose snacks are small enough to fit in your purse.  
  • Include at least one “break in case of emergency” snack.   You know…that snack your kid will do anything you say to get?  This snack may also be in the form of a candy.
  • No messy snacks!  Say no to snacks that can stain or spill. 

Mott’s Snack & Go Applesauce meets all my requirements.  They come in a variety of flavors that Peyton loves.  Her current favorite is strawberry.  Mott’s Snack & Go Applesauce comes in a convenient squeezable pouch that fits in my purse. 
Do you have any on the go snacking tips?

Mott’s®Snack & Go is the nutritious applesauce kids love in a squeezable pouch they can take with them wherever they go. Mott’s is also the only applesauce brand with Box Tops for Education®, helping to support kids’ schools. Visit Motts.comto learn more.

    I say invest in a slowcooker and tupperware. Can’t beat that combination! Warm food ready as soon as you get up in the morning and tupperware to carry delicious food around with you all day. Here check out one of my slow-cooker recipes for spicy-brownies: http://paindoesnthurt.com/paleo-spicy-brownies/
