Need the perfect sweet treat for your 4th of July party? Ever asked to bring a sweet treat to a party, shower, or small group? I always try to think of something that everyone will love, but that I will be able to enjoy, too.
My solution: The Yogurt Bar!
It is so quick and easy to put together a yogurt bar - and the possibilities are endless! I start with my FAVORITE vanilla Greek yogurt - Oikos! I usually get a few containers even for a small crowd.
Then you need the toppings! On this occasion, I used strawberries, blueberries, granola, and M&Ms.
-Any fruit (kiwi, pineapple, raspberries)
-Nuts (pecans, walnuts)
-Crushed graham crackers
Grab some clear cups (I recycle my endless supply from our wedding) and friends can create their very own yogurt creations!

Whew! It has been too long. My new job has kept my busy and sometimes after working all day on the computer I don't feel like blogging. I decided it's time to 'fall back into blogging!'
This year I decided to go all out for my fall decor this year! I decorated at the beginning of September and knew I'd be hosting Thanksgiving this year - so that's 3 months that these decorations would be out!! Christmas only gets left out for 1 month - what have I been thinking?
After getting out the few decorations from the previous year and a few too many trips to Hobby Lobby (with 40% off coupons, of course), I had all I needed to deck my house out for fall. The only problem was... I didn't know where to put any of it. I had more decor than I could possible need, I just couldn't figure out how to make it come together. I called my sister Jennifer to the rescue! She came in and helped magically pull it all together. Take a look at how it all turned out!

Whew! Life sure has been busy. I haven't posted as much on my blog lately because I just started my new job! After 3 years in the brick-and-mortar classroom, I am now teaching Kindergarten virtually with K12. It's an exciting new journey! I will be working from home, but still working hard to instruct students.
I have been a little behind on my blogging - having to figure out a new schedule. I worked this weekend to figure out a new routine for cleaning, meal planning, & exercise; we'll see how it goes this week!
This arrived to my front door last week:
Whoa! It was a job just getting all the boxes open!
After a little organizing, all the books and supplies are now neatly stored on some new bookshelves. I'm still going through training right now, but will hopefully be assigned my class soon! I'm so excited about this new opportunity.
