There is a saying I’ve used for years: The days are long but the years are fast. And, it’s true. It really hit me a couple of weeks ago when I was watching my oldest daughter do her homework.
This fall she will be heading into the 8th grade. A little over a year from now, she will start driving. And, before I know it, she will be heading off to college. I swear that just last week, she was my chubby little toddler sitting on the floor watching The Backyardigans!!
It made me think about the time we spend together. It’s so easy to get caught up the day-to-day craziness of life and work that we lose sight of this. We don’t realize how fast our children grow up and leave home.
Since that time, I’ve been focusing on making sure that the time we spend together is quality time. It is about finding ways to connect with her, and my other kids. And, it doesn’t have to be anything big.
THE PERFECT NIGHT
Every Saturday, our family goes to church together. Then, we go out to dinner. It is a chance for us to pray and worship together and then visit at the dinner table. There are no electronics. No distractions. We get a chance to connect with our kids. It is our family time.
Of course, we always eat on a budget when we can. That means we never order dessert. Instead, we go home and enjoy homemade cookies or other treats. We always love to try new things. One night, while watching TV, I noticed a commercial for the Magnum® Tubs. Have you seen it? Let me fill you in!
Magnum Ice Cream Bars have been around for some time. They are a decadent ice cream treat made with the silkiest sky bean vanilla ice cream drenched in the finest Belgian chocolate. (Is your mouth watering yet?). When I saw a scoopable version, I knew I had to try it.
I picked up a couple of tubs for our weekly Saturday night family time. I found them at Target, where you can use a brand new Cartwheel offer to save 15% off your purchase through May 5, 2018!!
I wanted to make sure that our family would like what we tried, so I picked up the Milk Chocolate Vanilla.
We squeezed the sides and then cracked the top. And then the fun began. Oh. Em. Gee. This stuff is amazing!! All five of us could not get enough!! We quickly downed both tubs, and the kids asked me to buy it for them again!!
My kids loved the milk chocolate vanilla. It is a creamy, smooth vanilla ice cream with thick shards of chocolate topped with a Belgian milk chocolate shell. Every bite is filled with velvety deliciousness.
While I liked that one, both my husband and I agreed that the Magnum white chocolate vanilla sounded even better! We can’t wait to try the silky smooth ice cream with chunks of white chocolate. Thinking about it makes me drool!!!!
I don’t usually buy many things I see on TV. I’m pretty frugal and like to take a wait and see approach. But, since I already knew how amazing Magnum® Ice Cream Bars were, I was confident that this would be a win as well. And boy, was I right!!!
There are four decadent flavors available: White Chocolate Vanilla, Milk Chocolate Vanilla, Milk Chocolate Hazelnut and Dark Chocolate Raspberry. And, all of them make my mouth water!!
We won’t have this dessert every Saturday night. But, it is now one of the items on our list! We can’t wait to try them all!!
