When you’re the mother of a five-year-old, “me time” is rare. So, when you get it, you have to make the most of it. That’s why, in today’s entry, I’ll be sharing my fool-proof five-ingredient plan for how to relax and unwind after the kids are in bed.

As a coffee lover, the most important part of that “me time” routine is a hot cup of decaf dark roast. And, as a lover of all things tasty and simple, my go-to creamer is International Delight Simply Pure. I picked mine up at recent trip to Walmart.

You’ll find International Delight in the refrigerated dairy section, with the milk and other coffee creamers.

For me, the International Delight Simply Pure creamers are part of my daily coffee routine. They’re a simple addition to your coffee in the morning, afternoon and night. The Simply Pure line-up includes three tasty flavors: Caramel, Vanilla and Hazelnut. All three are a tasty reminder of how good a coffee creamer can be with one five ingredients.

What I love most about the Simply Pure line is that all of the creamers are made with five simple ingredients, including real milk, cream, and sugar.

And now, in honor of the five simple ingredients in International Delight Simply Pure coffer creamers, here are my five simple ingredients for getting some much-needed “me time” after the kids are in bed. If anyone has any other ingredients, leave a comment!

INGREDIENT ONE: GET A DRINK — A good drink is perhaps the most important part of “me time,” so be sure to plan ahead and buy your favorite beverage earlier in the day. For me, it’s coffee with International Delight Simply Pure Hazelnut, but your beverage can be whatever you’d like.

INGREDIENT TWO: GET A SNACK — This one is optional, but feel free to grab a snack while you’re relaxing. Go ahead and make it a good one. Something you’d never be able to eat while the kids are awake because they’d demand some of their own and then fight over who got the bigger portion.

INGREDIENT THREE: MAKE IT QUIET — Hear that? It’s called “silence.” Enjoy that peace and quiet while you go to your happy place. Maybe you put on some music, maybe you don’t. The choice is yours.

INGREDIENT FOUR: DO SOMETHING RELAXING — This one is completely up to you. Your “something relaxing” can be reading a book (one of my favorite “me time” activities), but it can also include taking a bath, doing some scrapbooking, or watching your favorite TV shows. Heck, you can even clean the oven if that’s what relaxes you. (If that’s your idea of “me time,” feel free to come to my place and clean mine, too.)

INGREDIENT FIVE: POUR ANOTHER DRINK — If you got the kids in bed early enough, it’s probably time for another drink. Go ahead and get yourself another one — you’ve earned it!

Which one would you pick for some “me time”?
