When you are a blogger, your home life and work life blur. I love this about my job, because everything is part of everything else.
So yes, I am a multitasker by definition. I'm constantly juggling work and family, switching between the two at the drop of a hat.
I've learned that because things can be unpredictable, my goal is to stay nimble and flexible, and to use strategies that simplify my life and make it run smoothly.
It's why I eat ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bars when I'm looking for a between-meal snack. I like that they are tasty and packed with protein, so they keep my energy high.
They also go great with my green tea with coconut oil.
I've been eating ZonePerfect Bars for years. My secret is to refrigerate them so they've got a little extra crunch when you bite into them.
And when I go out, I always stash a few in my bag.
Today, we went to the Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA. The Maker Faire is "part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new." It's as if Burning Man, Google, and an artisan pickle maker had a baby.
It's for all types of makers, in every field imaginable, and because I think of myself as a "maker," I find the whole thing incredibly inspiring.
Here are some of my quick highlights...
This was a cool light up board you could adjust with magnetic lights.
Here are some adorable paper crafts people were selling.
I loved the clothing made from duct tape.
We got to explore a forest of fluorescent blow-up trees.
How cool is this life-size Monopoly board?
3D printers were everywhere!
And when I needed refueling, I pulled out my ZonePerfect Bar at the hula-hoop station.
Here I'm letting a camera show me my mood. The camera and I both agreed I was quite happy (thanks to my happy tummy).
My favorite ZonePerfect Bar flavors are Chocolate Peanut Butter, Double Dark Chocolate, and Chocolate Mint. As you can guess, I'm a chocolate kind of gal.
If you're a busy working mom like me, keep a ZonePerfect Bar (or two) at the ready. It's just one of those things that works!
