Spring Fever

This weather has me feeling the spring fever! It’s been incredible in Colorado. We have been enjoying a lot of time outside! It doesn’t take long for Emma to want to head outside after she wakes up even if it is still chilly.


After being able to tackle all our winter to do’s from building a snowman and staying in a yurt to going skiing and celebrating Christmas, we created a spring bucket list.

It includes things like building a garden and splashing in puddles. We’ve even been able to get a jump start on some of the fun starting our garden and doing some spring crafts!

One of the bucket list items for Emma is to try some new and fun recipes. My interest in food and trying new recipes always peaks at the changing of the seasons.

I found a recipe to make “Breakfast Sushi.” We tend to get into a routine with our breakfast meals, so I thought about trying something new! It was quite tasty!

Breakfast Sushi


  • Vanilla yogurt (we used Diary free Silk)

  • Banana

  • Fruity Pebbles cereal

  • Berries (We used blackberries)

Directions: Peal the banana. Spread yogurt on all sides of the banana. Roll the yogurt covered banana in Fruity Pebbles cereal. Cut the banana in small bites. Place a berry on each bite. Enjoy!

On the writing front, I am staying busy! This month, I have already sent in three assignments. I have three more due next week and one due mid April. That’s the way of the writing game (at least for me). One day I have no assignments, and the next day I have three or four. I’m really enjoying what I’m writing about from a piece on the Little Bellas mountain bike program to National Clean Up Your Room Day. Did you know that there is a National Association of Professional Organizers? Neither did I…….

I’m still plugging along with the 40 Bags Challenge. I am at over the half way mark. With all my writing assignments and this incredible weather, it’s been hard to concentrate on it. I placed some items for sale on Offer Up this week. It’s super easy to use. I haven’t had any luck with selling anything yet, though! This week, the plan is to get back into the basement and finish what I started!
