Six Word Saturday- late edition

Spring Break is just in time.

It's about that time of the school year when I ask myself if I have enough energy to make it till May. Weather gets better, kids get crazy and I get tired of sitting in a classroom all day. Enter Spring Break--- 9 consecutive days without bells. It's gonna be just what I need.

I want candy...

At some point last week I got an e-mail from my son's homeroom mom about teacher appreciation week. My district does their own teacher appreciation without the seal of approval from Hallmark. I knew it was coming up and last night I had a panic attack because I couldn't find the e-mail anywhere and knew I signed up to treat the class teacher and music teacher. Smashed Peas and Carrots to the rescue! I had most of the stuff on hand to make these super delicious (and definitely not low cal) twix bars.

For her easy to follow recipe & pictures, go here. Seriously, go there now, they are that delicious! They weren't as hard to make as I thought (and I can make some huge errors in food prep) and they made great sweet treats for the teachers--- I even took them to my campus for some teacher lounge love!

In other news, I turn 32 in a few short hours and have no idea what my plans are... dinner? drinks? crafty time? making a new things to do list? Any suggestions for celebrating 30 the 3rd time?
