YEAH, I finally got them loaded!

I started a digital scrapbooking course online. At www.jessicasprague.com It is great! Clear understandable. I get TONS of help understanding all the things I have been wondering about! I LOVE IT! It is so fun. Because of so many reasons. Above is my first "layout assignment" I love it so much! FUN FUN FUN! My amazing neighbor who is a wiz at this got me turned onto it, we are taking it together.

These 2 "desktop layouts" Are what I have on the desktop of my computer. The top one is from shabby princess a blog she writes gives all sorts of "freebies". The bottom "desktop" is from another blog, but I can't find the link for the life of me. So sorry!

The last pict. is of my funny dear husband! He cracks me up! And what is he holding do you ask? Well, my Aunt Barb sent me the recipe for these SOFT GRANOLA BARS that my family devoured before I even got a chance to individually wrap them for take to school treats.

Here is the recipe:

Soft Granola Bars
Jean Facer

3 1/2 C. Regular Oats
1/2 C. Wheat Germ
1 1/2 C. Rice Krispies
1 C. Shredded Coconut
1/2 C. Butter
3 C. Marshmellows
1/3 C. Honey
2/3 C. Pumpkin Seeds (OR the recipe calls for chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the oats and Wheat Germ and Pumpkin Seeds together in the pan and bake for 20-25 min. stirring every 5 min. until it is toasted (it starts to smell yummy!) Take out and add the Rice Krispies and coconut and set aside.

In a bowl or saucepan, melt the marshmellows, margarine and honey together.

Mix the melted ingredients into the dry mixture and after they are well mixed, stir in the cocolate chips (pumpkin seeds in my case) I also added a "glug" of vanilla (real technical huh?)

Pour into 9X13 pan and pat down.

Let cool and cut into 16 bars. THey can be wrapped individually in foil and kept in the freezer.

We didn't even get to the "let cool stage" We just ate them out of the pan. It was our dessert after dinner.

Really try it! It is way yummy!


One last thing. I have been trying out this really fun exercise program in the mornings. I LOVE IT! There is only one person I know will agree with me. That's my Aunt Bev, she and I have a lot in common in this certain area. It is on Oxygen channel in the mornings. It is an hour long. I have been doing it for a month now, and I am a new woman! I look forward to it every day! I have new respect for my bodies abilities and how I am connected to it.

Guess I will post the answer later.
