1. Cut your fabric to any size you want. I chose 4in x 4in. This is a great size to stick in your pocket and perfect for the back of your neck if you have a headache.

Let's talk about green smoothies....SO GOOD! Around here, we both have one for breakfast every single day. If you've never had one, you're probably asking why....right?
Well, I'll tell you.
#1: They taste great!
#2: They're extremely good for you!
#3: They are ridiculously easy to make!
I like to make things easy. So, once a week we head out to the local farmer's market and pick up what we need. You can put anything in yours, but this is what I put in mine:
I clean everything when I get home. Slice the bananas and strawberries and put on a cookie sheet along with the raspberries. Put them in the freezer until frozen. (I do this so that they don't freeze together in the sandwich bags.)
Then to a small freezer bag, I add: a handful of spinach and kale and some fruit. The amount you add depends on how big you want your smoothie.
In the morning I take the contents out of a bag, and put it in my nutribullet (if you don't have one, you are REALLY missing out!!!), add one small container of Greek yogurt, a little water and DONE! So good!
If you're not a spinach or kale person, don't worry. If you add strawberries to anything with spinach, you don't end up with a spinach taste!
If you are already drinking green smoothies, good for you! If you're not, you should try it! You'll be so glad you did!

This one, however, will be filled with posts about all of the fun things I have found on Pinterest and have tried to recreate! This wonderful little recipe is not from Pinterest, but came from a wonderful friend. She gave it to me and I have been whipping it up for years now!
THIS....is the best Christmas/holiday/anytime creation in the world! I have requests for it ALL year long! I make it for birthday presents for a few people because they just can't wait until Christmas to get some! It sounds a little weird, but let me tell you....its AMAZING!! I'm not sure of the "proper" name, but around here, we simply call it Cracker Bark!
Most of the ingredients needed are probably in your pantry right now:
*1.5 sleeves of saltine crackers
*1 stick of butter (the real stuff!)
*1 cup Brown sugar (I use dark, but have used light and it tastes the same)
*Chocolate chips (about 1/2 cup)
*Peanut Butter chips (about 1/2 cup)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
