These are a few of my favorite things… {Snacks Bars!}

Favorite protein bar {on the go}.  I probably wouldn’t reach for one of these if I was at home, since I like to make special snacks at home.  But since I teach, I have one of these around [3:30] everyday!  All the kids ask, “Oooo, a candy bar.  Can I have one?”  I say, “Not a candy bar, and NO!”

My favorite?… All of them.  Tried them all!!

My other favorite: Clif Mojo bar- Peanut butter!!  HEAVEN!  But unfortunately, the school is peanut free…drats!  I tried the other flavors, not a fan.

I’m on the mission to find new bars!  I tried a “Full Bar” the other day.. Biggest waste of $2.87!  I wasn’t trying to feel full… but just curious of the taste. Taste=bland/fake.  Texture=pure styrofoam.  NO WONDER they say they make you feel full… the styrofoam probably expands in your stomach and tricks it!!  So disappointed.

What’s your favorite bar?


I’ve fallen into the blogging world!

I did it. I caved. I am now blogging… and why you ask? I have no clue. But… You know you should just take the plunge and start one when…

You talk in blog talk. This morning, my sister made me a protein shake and I said, “this is PB goodness”. She said I was blog talking, considering I never say “pb goodness”. 🙂
You think in blog thoughts.  As I was working out, I was thinking… ya know, if I had a blog, I would talk about this.

You talk about blogs nonstop. My sister, Katie, and I pretty much don’t even have to say who we are talking about, or even start to describe the post that we saw. We just say one word and some how, in two completely different houses, at two different times, saw the same post and wanted to tell each other about it.

You think about the pictures you should be taking. I made a deeelicious dinner the other night and I thought, “ya know, I should take a picture of this beauty”. I was proud 🙂

So… with that being said…. why not? 🙂 Plus, my sister is pretty much famous {in her own little blogging world} so I thought I’d join her to give her some shout outs.  {}

So, Hello blogging world.  My name is Emily. I am 22 and a recent graduate from EMU and am now teaching 5th grade.  I am the youngest of three girls and am very close with my family.  I have a passion for: The Lord, my family, people, working out, children, teaching, and eating healthy. And my new found passion… cooking! Who would have ever guessed? Living with my sister, Katie, pretty much never ever ever ever gave me the chance to step FOOT in the kitchen. But hey, I can’t complain too much. My tummy was constantly happy because she LOVED cooking for the family. But nowwww… she’s married off, and I figured I had two options: #1. Starve or #2. Learn! So I started putting to practice the things she taught me and some of the things I’ve seen her do. And hey, I’m not too bad. I figure I should practice now (with my mom and dad being the guinea pigs) before I get married. (Then I can really impress him, wink wink.) Katie has been the biggest role model to me. She has taught me the proper way to treat and view your body, how to work “smarter, not harder” to get the results you want, been my workout buddy, and most of all, has taught me how to make healthy food taste DELICIOUS! Check out her website to see what I mean! {}. So thanks big sis… I love you!

So this blog will be random. My day to day. My thoughts. My revelations of the Lord. My food. {My attempts making food.}  My workouts. My family. etc, etc, etc. I hope you enjoy hearing the thoughts of Emily. But most of all, I hope you see that I live my life with a “passionate purpose”.

Goodbye for now blogging world,
