This blog has been existence for just over a year and during this time it has seen great growth. I’ve gone from most everyone who reads the blog knowing me in my real life to just a small percentage of you actually knowing me. I thought it would be fun to take a bit of a departure from the usual recipes and food talk to have a chat about the “woman behind the blog.”
You have probably figured out that I am a busy mom of 4. My oldest has gone off to college so my house has shrunk to 3 children on a regular basis. I would have thought that my life would be less busy now, but it seems to only get busier and busier. My dear friend and cousin-in-law says what sets my blog apart from other blogs is that I am truly living the juggling lifestyle. I don’t have all day to cook and yet I still feel like I can get real food to the table the majority of the time.
I am not a professional chef, photographer, or writer. I am an insurance agent. I put my kids on the bus at 8:27 in the morning, chat with my bus-stop friend, and then head out to work. I work 9AM to 5PM. I am the only employee in the office so I work non-stop. I eat lunch each day at my desk so that I can take care of all my customers who need me by 5:00 each day. I then race out to pick up my younger two kids from after-school care (at the school) and then run off to their activities.
Since I dress up for work, you can usually find me at cheer practice, Girl Scout meetings, and baseball games in my dress clothes and high heels. I am likely known as the most overdressed mom at these activities. I don’t want to miss anything so I don’t stop to change clothes. I also do the laundry in the house and who wants more laundry to wash? Certainly, not me! My kids create enough laundry to keep me busy. Thank you very much!
When I received Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles to try out, you know I was super
excited. Anything to make my juggling more comfortable sure would be appreciated. I ripped open the package and stuck them in my shoes. Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles went into my shoes nice and easy. There was no cutting or sizing. Right away I could tell the difference. The shoes I put them in don’t have a lot of padding and they are not the most comfortable shoes I own. I went to work and then took my daughter to dance class. While she was at dance class, I ran to the store. The gel-like cushioning felt so nice. My legs and feet were not tired at all. They seemed to warm up my feet as well which is probably not good in the summer, but was just fine with me since the weather has turned cooler here in Ohio.
It is quite common for me to cook in my high heels. Sometimes I have a bit of time between school and activities and prepare a quick meal. I am sure grateful to have my Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles. I plan to put them in all of my shoes. They are my new secret weapon to help me Juggle Real Food and Real Life. I may still be overdressed at the baseball fields, but don’t worry about me. I’m nice and comfortable with Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles in my shoes.
That’s just a little bit about me. I do love my high heels! So now when you are making my recipes think of me running around with my kids while wearing my high heels. My real food recipes are easy to make……….no matter what you are wearing. On a side note……..my daughter who is 8 loves to try on my new shoes and walk around the house in them. She is so darn cute! She prefers the shoes with the Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles too.
Now tell me about you………..Do you cook in heels too? I can’t be the only one. Tell me your stories. Have you ever tried Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles? Do you find that they help you to keep up with your busy schedule in comfort?
