If you’ve hung around Parent Palace much at all, you will know that I’m a full-time working mom.  In fact, I’m a full-time working attorney, and my job frequently demands WELL beyond 8 hours a day.  Between my job, writing for Parent Palace, running the kids to and from activities, and, on occasion, sleep, my time is at a premium.  Moments to myself are rare – and that’s definitely okay!  I love my crazy life, but every once in awhile, it can become completely overwhelming.  This past week was one of those weeks – work was in crisis mode, my blog calendar was packed, and the girls are in full swing with end of year activities.

My stress level hit the roof.  It got real.  One of my favorite ways to kill stress is to run.  I have a great (i.e. extremely competitive) running partner so hitting the roads is usually a great way to kill stress.  I ran/walked about 6 miles before 9 am on Saturday, and my stress level was still through the roof.  It was time for some Me Time.  I headed to Walmart to pick up some supplies for an afternoon to myself – some magazines, and a cooler with Häagen Dazs Artisan Collection, and some ice!


It was an absolutely lovely day outside, but before I headed to the park to enjoy a quiet minute outdoors, I spent a few hours wandering around our local art museum, taking my time, and just enjoying the moment!  Afterwards, I headed out to the park across the street from the museum and adjacent to a beautiful rose garden – the roses were just starting to bloom!


While I didn’t (obviously) indulge in 4 pints of ice cream, I just couldn’t choose which flavor of the HÄAGEN-DAZS® Artisan Collection to get, so I got 4!  But I was most excited about try Tres Leches Brigadeiro Ice Cream.


Tres Leches Brigadeiro was specially crafted with Paula Barbosa of My Sweet Brigadeiro™.  This is a delicious twist on a Brazilian tradition.  Guys, this ice cream is HEAVEN.  It is total indulgence, and I enjoyed every single bite of the creamy, carmely goodness!!  You can definitely taste the artisan influence!  And if you’d like to have some artisan influence in your life, check out and enter the Haagen Dazs Artisan Flavors Contest!

    The Haagen Dazs ice cream I have not had in forever and it sounds like a plan to get some. I will have to try the Tres Leches Brigadeiro for sure. Thanks for sharing and this is an awesome giveaway. I would love the mixer.
