Swimming over shopping


When I think about my ideal Saturday, it usually has something to do with being outdoors with my family – swimming, lounging, playing in the sand or the sun. But who has time for that when there are SO many errands to catch up on over the weekend?! I've seriously found the greatest solution to playing and getting stuff done on our Saturdays and it even involves a discount code for you to try it out. And that solution is called Google Express.


Google Express entered my life on the most ideal weekend you could imagine. Neil and I were just getting back from a week in Lake Powell and my pantry was looking pretty bare! We needed a laundry list of things stocked back up but the last thing I wanted to do was sacrifice time doing fun things with my kids after a week of being away. Enter Google Express.

Google Express gives you the freedom to order everything you need, from a gigantic variety of stores, from the convenience of your computer or mobile device.


I actually heard first about Google Express at a favorite things party back in December of 2015, where the girls who were gabbing about the amazingness of Google Express looked at me like I had three heads when I said I had never heard of it! I kind of forgot about how much they raved about it, and how it had saved them many times when it was hard to get out of the house with little kids!

And then Google Express came to me and asked if I'd partner with them on this post. Let's see, someone else running to Costco or Whole Foods FOR me? Yes please!!!

I was able to order the baby food pouches Lyla loves and the popcorn Ani and I love from Whole Foods and have them delivered to our door instead of running there myself. As you can see here, Ani was pretty stoked to see that purple popcorn come in a box just for us!


I also had Google Express get all of our empties filled back up from Costco. This basically changed our entire Saturday because we got to swim at the pool, as a family, instead of taking that same amount of time to go to the store ourselves!


See that glorious haul of Costco and Whole Foods items? They showed up right on my doorstep. And 5 minutes later we were out the door on our way to the pool!


Thanks Google Express for giving me my NEW Saturday. I think we'll keep you around!
