How to Reward Yourself

I was asked to participate in the #HDMoment campaign, sponsored by Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

Two years ago I became, eeeek, a dance mom. As someone who quit ballet fairly early on in life, I wasn't overly familiar with the whole dance mom thing beyond what I'd seen on that show of the same name. Haha! As soon as I found out I was having a little girl, however, I started dreaming about the day I would watch her twirl across the stage in a tutu. So, I put my baby girl in dance lessons when she was three years old and neither one of us ever looked back. She was born to grace that stage and has loved every moment of dance class that she's experienced.

In fact, her favorite part of the whole process is when that year of hard work at the barre culminates in one adorable performance which, for us, was a few days ago. To tell you the truth, I'm still tired...and so is the rest of my family for that matter. Bwah! It was, of course, a long day for my tiny dancer, but it was just as grueling for us, especially for her big brother who was an amazing sport by the way. So, I'm ready to reward my kiddos for a job well done. Hey, my son has been waiting outside that classroom every week for his sister for a whole year. So, don't you want to know my fam’s idea for a simple, yet satisfying way to reward yourself too? Four words...Häagen-Dazss® ice cream. Mmmm!

That's right. It may sound cliche to say go have some ice cream, but who cares? Seriously, go have some ice cream. My whole family goes to town on ice cream bars, for instance, and being that Häagen-Dazs makes some of the best, I decided to pick up a box of their Vanilla Milk Chocolate Almond Ice Cream Bars. The rich cocoa and roasted almond flavors meld beautifully together making for a mouthwatering treat that both delights kiddos and adults alike!
