Congratulations to our winner, Julie!

I’m always struggling to find time for myself. Whether it is grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend or reading a book or just loading the dishwasher. Trying to find time to spend with my dear husband is next to impossible.

My husband and I just celebrated our 15th anniversary in September. We managed to carve out almost 48 hours to escape to Snowmass, Colorado for a little getaway. During our time away, we discovered something … we are sleep deprived. The romantic getaway turned into going to bed at 10:30 and sleeping until 11:00 a.m. the next day! We were stunned and realized we had given up on sleeping in.

We also try to steal away precious moments after our girls go to sleep and watch a movie or enjoy each other’s company while doing monotonous jobs like cleaning up after dinner. Even with these little moments, we still spend a lot of time raising children and taking care of a household.

I’m fully aware that my husband and I are not the best with creating “we” time. What do you do to steal a few minutes with your sweetie? Leave a comment below with how you create “we” time.

Frito-Lay is giving one lucky reader a “we” time starter kit. I’ll randomly select a winner from the comments and email you for your address.

  • 2 bags of Lay’s Kettle Cooked Potato Chips
  • Pair of chalkboard mugs (perfect for unwinding with your favorite drink)
  • Large ceramic bowl (in yellow for sharing chips)

You can share a movie after the kids go to bed, share some potato chips and have a hot toddy or drink of your choice.

(Or the chalk board mugs make a perfect teacher gift. If you are as thrifty as I am.)

In exchange for this post, I also received the same starter kit. Potato chips are my weakness. The Sun-Dried Tomato and Parmesan chips are to die for!!! And look what my lovelies wrote on my mug immediately after I unwrapped it.

Contest ends Friday, October 12th at midnight MST. Winner will be notified and announced October 13th.
