New Design & Currently!!!

Can you shout from the hilltops with me?

I am sooooo excited about my new design I can hardly stand it!!!!

Michelle - The 3am Teacher - is incredibly talented and incredibly patient!!!! She literally makes EVERYTHING from so knowledgable about coding and web design it's incredible! I'm proud to call her my friend and hope that you will RUN over to her blog to follow her...then if you're thinking about a blog of your own or an overhaul...head her way, too! I heart Michelle!

Her stores are loaded with clip art that will make you smile! On the top right area of her blog you can get to her stores easily...

I could not be more grateful for her hard work on my new design! It makes me so darn happy!

And...August 1st means Farley's in my typical summer-only ADHD fashion, I'm switching gears...

Wildtree Freezer Meal workshops literally saved my sanity last year when I went to my first one! I'll be pre-marinating meats and such today and tomorrow to stock my freezer! If you get invited to a Freezer Meal Workshop...GO! It's worth every penny! 10 meals in 1.5 hours (once you've prepped the meats according to direx before you go to the party.)! It's fun to show up with coolers and hang with your friends while prepping your meals!

UPDATE! Since I linked up so quickly to Farley's post I didn't see all the I'm adding this...Farley shouted out my gal Katie's Hey You! What's New! Reminder Notes...they are truly amazing and SO helpful!!!

I gotta shout out her other new product...

And...a freebie for you...this will be going up in my classroom in some sort of fun frame! :)

What are your B2S must haves?


  1. I love the new design and I MUST do more meal prepping this year. It will be a sad day when we have to cover our toes again in Michigan!

  2. Your back to school must haves are GREAT! I should have gone that route... you are a genius. LOVE the new blog design! Enjoy the last bit of summer :)

  3. I love me some freezer meals. I'm currently avoiding packing. :)

  4. What are Fit Flops?! I've never heard of them but I'm thinking I should know about them. As for your B2S meals, we're going to be doing that, too! We were using the crockpot for a while but fell off that train but how great would it be to come home to a warm meal already made?! Perfect.

  5. You are sooo sweet!!! Everything really did turn out so cute and I am honored that I was chosen to bring your ideas to life!! Thank you so much!!

    On another note... I need to get invited to one of those prep-meals parties... That sounds like such a fun thing to do as a couple even.... I might need to crash a party..hahaha

  8. Beautiful blog makeover!! it's always such a treat to stop by and see what you're up to. Thanks for the freebie!

    I belonged to a supper-club group that decided we could save a little money and do the meals ourselves. So we each showed up with a recipe and enough ingredients to make it eight times (or however many of us RSVPd for that particular get-together) and we all came home with each other's dinners in freezer-ready containers. The bonus, of course, was the social time with one another!

    Thanks for sparking a fun memory.


  9. LOVE the new design! Way to go Michelle!

  10. No freakin' way! I am IN LOVE with your new design! It completely suits you and is so fun to look at! Michelle is so gifted! Congrats!

  11. Love your new design! One of these days it's going to happen for me too. I have a colleague and she has made 40 meals. Yikes!!! I can't imagine cooking that many meals at one time. I'll regret it when school starts and I'm so busy that I have to buy pizza every night. Good luck on getting yours prepared.

  12. Amazing blog design. I love it and loved your post so I had to (stalk) follow you.

    I do love the new design!

  23. Lisa,

    Your new blog design is just beautiful....just like you and your kind heart!

    I adore your Everyone Matters poster. Thank you so much for sharing it. Just to let you know...YOU are a person that matters so much to me!

    Love you lots,

    1. Lovey Friend - I am SO grateful for Y-O-U!!!!!!

  24. So glad I found your blog through the linky. What a cute blog design! Love the chalkboard grey with the bright aquas and pinks. So cute! That freezer party sounds right up my ally. Once I start back to school and Mr. Winemaker starts harvest season there is no time for creative cooking. I will have to look in and see if there are workshops in my area.
