A Healthy Spooky Snack with Mini Babybel®

Hi Dolls!

The kids and I did a quick Target run the other day for some last minute things for my vacation and of course we couldn't leave without hitting the Target Cafe and picking up some snacks for the week. My kids have been eyeing these cheese snacks from Mini Babybel® forever and I just couldn't say no because I secretly wanted to try them too. HA! My kids could seriously live off of cheese and crackers! Mini Babybel® is made with 100% real cheese and is a good source of calcium and protein....so this Mama is WINNING in the healthy snack department!

I truly love  the fact that, not only are these snacks healthy and tasty for my little ones to enjoy during the day or to place in their lunch boxes for school, etc...I love that they help them with their motor skills as well! From the unwrapping to cutting the cheese up to place on their favorite crackers! As Mom, I appreciate all the help I can get to keep them busy and make learning fun!

One year on the blog and my favorite personalized tote


Hi Dolls,

Well a year has come and gone for my blog and man have I learned a ton not only about blogging but a lot about myself and what I could accomplish by just TRYING everyday. When I first started my blog and started posting regularly, I made three goals for my blog. Having those goals were very helpful to keep myself motivated throughout the year. Going into my second year now, I need to do this again because I have lost motivation to post regularly again. Between taking care of the kids and running a household, it's very hard to find the time to feel inspired to write a post. My blog is not a source of income for my home. When I post links to my outfits, I do get a very small commission if you purchase from those links. I simply created my blog because since I was a little girl, style/fashion has always been a strong passion of mine. I am so grateful for all the support that my family, friends, and followers give me!!!  I cannot thank you all enough for supporting my dream of running a style/fashion blog. 

As you can see, I have changed my blog name from "Balancing In Heels Through Motherhood" to "Ashley Clark Blog".  The reasoning behind this is one, I jumped the gun on how much I was going to actually share about my family/children. I never fully felt comfortable having their little faces all over the internet just for the sake of an outfit or what we are up to. Other bloggers show their children and a lot about their day to day lives and it works for them. By me opting out on this, I feel like it's harder for readers/followers to find me relatable at times. So that can be frustrating for me because I am putting myself out there for the world to judge me already with my  style and things I love to do. My kids are running around while I am working on a post blog and when we are shooting outfits. I am real Mom struggling to multitask just like the rest of them, sadly you just don't see that. Reader's see a girl with a put together outfit and no chaos going on. So please know, their is A LOT of chaos going on! HA!
