Confession time. I might be a little happy about the kids starting back to school. Why do I feel so guilty about saying that? It’s nice to have some alone time that doesn’t happen late at night when I’m half asleep. Don’t get me wrong. I loved having more time to spend with T over summer break. It was great and we had a lot of fun, but towards the end I was feeling worn out and desperate for a few minutes of “me time”. Luckily, I’m feeling better already. I don’t require much to recharge. Just give me half an hour with a good book, a few minutes listening to my “me time” playlist, or a few moments enjoying a special treat that’s just for me.

A special treat that’s just for me and YOU.
Oui by Yoplait
Last month I discovered something wonderful and new while shopping at my local Walmart. I eat yogurt every single day, so the new Oui by Yoplait in it’s adorable packaging immediately caught my eye. It’s an all-new French style yogurt. I’m a sucker for anything French and Yoplait yogurts are my jam.
About a week after I discovered and fell in love with Oui by Yoplait, I was approached to give it a try and write about it. I love when the stars align. It is a kismet partnership.
I seriously LOVE this stuff.
With its unique, thick and creamy texture and subtly sweet fresh taste, Oui brings a new offering and experience to the yogurt aisle — and a moment of pure enjoyment in every spoonful. While Oui is a very special kind of yogurt, you’ll still find it in the yogurt aisle at Walmart.
Not many, but some things are just for me. Oui by Yoplait is one such thing. I don’t like to share it. At all.
T has been relentlessly asking to try my yogurt and I have to keep telling her no. Her interest might have something to do with the fact that Oui takes up half of an entire shelf in my refrigerator. You could say that I’m a wee bit obsessed and sometimes a girl needs to be stingy about her stuff.
Oui is available in eight single-serve flavors (Strawberry, Vanilla, Blueberry, Peach, Black Cherry, Coconut, Lemon, and Plain) and two multipack flavors (Strawberry and Vanilla). I love them all. The Strawberry 4-pack is so convenient, so I grab that a lot. Out of the single-serve flavors, I am particularly fond of the Peach and Coconut varieties. The Black Cherry is pretty great too.
Thick. Creamy. Subtly Sweet.
I know I shouldn’t feel guilty for wanting time for myself. Everyone needs to recharge and self-care is an important part of motherhood. We need to take care of ourselves to be better mothers. I hope you’ll join me in ditching the mom guilt and take care of yourself. Carve out some “me time” whether it’s a trip to the salon or indulging in a special treat like Oui by Yoplait. If listening to tunes is your thing, I’m sharing my “me time” playlist. It’s a mixture of old and new songs that will relax and uplift you.

Made with whole milk, Oui French style yogurt is cultured in each glass pot for eight hours, creating a unique, thick, creamy and cuttable texture. It is best experienced without stirring to enjoy the unique, thick and creamy texture. You’ll be glad to know that Oui is made with no artificial flavors, or colors from artificial sources, and featured REAL fruit on the bottom.
Say Oui to Me Time.
