Blueberry Hemp Snack Bars. April 29, 2012 at 11:57 am I am learning a lot about myself, not to mention how to “deal with” and manage people from running our yogurt store and starting a new business. While managing (mostly) high school kids has proven to be a big challenge, it also brings about growth….and who couldn’t use a little stretching? Thank goodness for the weekend though!
It’s been a week of emotional ups and downs at work and I am ready a rest day to recharge.

Maple Peanut Butter “Muffin Top” « Welcome To Nutritiously Sweet! Happy 200th post to me, Nutritiously Sweet!
I’ve been thinking for the past couple of days what could be the 200th post? I wanted it to be something simple, delicious and of course nutritiously sweet!

Saturday night, Eric and I were on our nightly walk and we passed by our neighbours sitting outside enjoying a pitcher of Sangria.
They invited us over for a drink and we couldn’t think of a reason not to join in on the fun! Drinks led to more drinks, hours flew by, conversation flowed, and we found ourselves home long past midnight with a wonderful evening behind us. Anxiety tends to make me over-analyze everything…what if this happens, what if I say this, what if…but I realized when I do things spontaneously, I don’t have time for all that crap to go through my mind.
