Healthy Frozen Treat

Have you ever tried to eat healthy? Have you ever tried to abstain from the fattening naughty treats that like to stick to us in all the wrong places? Yep, yep that's me.

Have you ever wanted to be healthy but find yourself bored with plain old fruits and vegetables and craving something more impressive for the palette? Yes please!

So I've been scouring Pinterest to find healthy and yummy options. This is one of my first attempts and I can say, Yum! Also it is very simple. Grab some granola, any kind you choose, and mix it with a little melted butter. Layer it in the botto, of a muffin tin.

Mix cool whip and about 1/3-1/2c of yogurt and a pinch of cinnamon. Layer on top.
Layer with your fruit of choice. I used strawberries that had been canned in water. Fresh is out of season :) Then freeze and prepare for yummy guilt free goodness.

According to my calculations, this dessert is approximately 178 calories. Enjoy!

Bench Creation

So for a year now I've been wanting a bench in our entry way. Then we wouldn't have to hop and limp to put our shoes on :) Nothing I had seen had been exactely what I wanted. So I had decided it was time to get creative. They sold tons of little benches here, but I knew I wanted to class it up a little. I finally got one of my to do list goals crossed off! I bought the bench. Then a few days later I rounded some fabric, foam and some tiny nails. Now I was ready to roll! Mistakes were made but I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

I think many people use two layers of material or maybe even glue down the foam. I didn't do either, possibly a mistake. I definitely should have done the material a little loser. If it's too tight it kind of contorts the foam but as they say in Nepal, "Kay Garney" ( what can you do?").

So I cut the foam to fit. Then I cut the fabric to fit. Then went around tacking it in place with tiny nails.

Then we added some paint to the wood legs and took a picture with the cutest little boy I know :)

And that's it ladies and gentleman, my entryway bench. Now, hopefully soon I will have a coat rack to display!
