Where are you?!?!

So, those of you that follow me on Facebook or Twitter probably saw my announcement that I would be back to my regular blogging schedule soon.

What you don't know is I wanted to be back like a month ago!  It is so hard getting back into a routine after you have been on a semi-hiatus for such a long time.  Life just kind of stands in the way, you hardly have time to breath some days.

So, what am I doing that is keeping me so busy?
 Well, both girls have dance on Tuesday now.
 MG goes in the morning and Mads goes in the evenings.  Dance is a good 45 minutes away.  So my Tuesday's are spent pretty much in the car.

I recently became the Coordinator for our girls Ministry Department at church.  That is my Wednesday plus any other day that comes up that I am needed.  I have only been in the position for 3 weeks, and am still actually in training, but so far I am loving it and can not wait to implement some fun ideas I have for the girls.  WooHoo!!

Friday's I work on the Walgreens and Target matchups for my friend Sarah over at

So what am I doing the rest of the week?  Well.....working!  lol  Right now I am working as a Campaign Leader for Collective Bias. The campaign I am currently working on is for Nestle Lean Cuisine. I work with 4-10 different bloggers each week until December.  This weeks theme is Lean Cuisine and Couch-to-5K!  I am SO excited about this round!  Since I am the CL I can't actually participate in the campaign but I have already decided I am going to do my own version along side the ladies that will be participating in this round.  I will try to post for you as I go.  I even bought some new walking/running shoes yesterday to celebrate!  HA!  We are "officially" doing the program for 2 weeks, feel free to come do it with us!  I absolutely love working with these bloggers and Collective Bias.  It is an AWESOME community to be part of, it is really more like a family.

If you want to see what exactly Cbias is, check out this video.

Pretty cool right? And I get to be a part of that! Eeek!  Yeah, I totally freak out a little everyday because I am helping make history!  

The rest of my time is spent playing with, cuddling, hugging and loving my sweet girls.  I had a not so great freak out moment last week when I realized MG starts Pre-K next fall.  I mean seriously, it was bad.  lol I mean that's it, once she starts school that's it! I will be turning her over to someone else for 8 hours a day and that makes me so sad.  I know she is going to do great, it is me that is going to be the one crying like a big ol baby in the hall of the school.  Let's not even start talking about the fact that Mads will be in upper elementary next year. OH! MY! GOSH!  So yeah, needless to say, I am cherishing as much time with both my babies as possible.  It won't be long before they are grown with families of their own. *sigh*

SO!  All of that to say, I will be back to my regular blogging schedule soon.  But my soon, and your soon may be totally different.  I hope you still love me anyway.  Feel free to come chat with me on Facebook or Twitter, right now I am looking for fundraising ideas, but nothing that kids have to sale and nothing from a direct sales company.  Not that I don't love direct sales companies, it's just not what we are looking for at this time.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Much love,

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
