Happy New Year everyone! 2011 was a great year;
we bought our 2nd home and SOLD our first (yay! that took FORever), I graduated with my masters degree, and we just finished off the year giving birth to my beautiful baby girl...
I am excited to see what 2012 will bring...I look forward to many more posts - I have learned so much from you all (teacher blogs, DIY, and crafty/cooking blogs) and have grown in many ways. Here's to a new year!!

I leave you with this:

My husband and I will be toasting into the new year...but notice the gravity-defying champagne??? hehe...I made sparkling jello!! yay! Those of you who don't "know" me yet...I LOVE to be themed...do you remember my pumpkin waffles and reindeer pancakes?? hehe. I'm wondering if I need to change my blog's name to something about being a teacher and being crafty-like?? lol. I got the recipe from Family Fun...check it out {HERE}.

Be safe and see you next year!

When I was little, I saw a commercial for sparkling jello - they had cut it up into cubes and put the cubes in champagne glasses. As soon as I saw the commercial, I told my mom that I wanted sparkling jello cubes as my wedding dessert. She said I was crazy. I think I still might do it!!!!!!!!! :)

Marvelous Multiagers!

Holly - sorry! It was a last minute thing! lol. But it is totally fun!
Jill - they don't make the sparkling jello anymore :( so I had to add in some gingerale into it..it was pretty good! And you totally should do it for your wedding! How fun!!
Kristen - thanks!! I saw you posted it today too... :)

I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
attempting to use the slow internet :)

I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

Love you!
