Visiting My Grandma

by Patricia July 15, 2015

Next week I’m going to visit my grandma. She is 91 years old and lives in Indianapolis. She lives in an assistant living facility. She has lots of friends but unfortunately has a very small room. When the 5 of us visit her, it’s pretty crowded, but it’s kind of fun. She always has things […]

my summer challenge

by Patricia July 10, 2015

At the beginning of summer, I made a goal for myself. My challenge was to bake at least one dessert per week that I have never made before. Except for the weeks I have been traveling, I have successfully managed this task. First I made carmelatas (oat and Carmel bars). Then mostly went to Eckert […]

Raising the Bar

by Katie July 6, 2015

Hey Fontbonne! This week has been such a bummer with all the rain and nasty weather we’ve been getting. Due to the weather and having a full work week, I’ve been finding things to keep me entertained indoors. One of those things has been making my own snack bars. Snack/protein bars are my go-to while […]

2nd week of my trip

by Patricia June 29, 2015

During the second week in Florida, we rented a house on St. George Island. It had a really, really long dock that we used for fishing, crabbing, and kayaking. The kayaking was a little hard, since I had never done it before. But I spent most of my time at the beach. I love to surf […]

Rain, Rain, Go Away

by Taylor June 23, 2015

Is everyone as sick of all this rain as I am? I think it rained every single day last week, which is very unusual since it’s summer! This week looks a little more promising though! Temperatures look to be in the 80’s all week with some rain possibly Friday, but hopefully it just passes over. […]

Breaking Past Barriers

by Katie June 22, 2015

I’ve adopted a new mantra lately, and that is “Do one thing every day that scares you”.  In other words, get used to pushing your comfort-zone.
