Colten was his Class President this year, as such I automatically became President of After Prom.  We worked all year to raise funds for After Prom and it was exciting to see everything come together with the help of all of the student’s families.

Early in the year the parents got together and had all of his class come to a meeting to discuss what they wanted to do for After Prom. Each student wrote down a list of activities that they thought would be fun, thankfully most of the kids had the same ideas.

These low carb cookies were meant to be “no carb” cookies but I didn’t notice that I had purchased the Splenda “Blend” until after the cookies were made.  Lizzie and I thought they were pretty good. We tried making them with the non-blended Splenda later on and they were awful so we decided to stick with how we made the cookies the first time around.

I’m joining my awesome photography friends in another blog circle of the Our Life is Here series, we chose the color pink for February.

This month Colten and his fellow teammates made it to All-State where they were awarded by the Iowa High School Speech Assoc. for Group Improv.  To make it to All-State the group had to present their Improv at Districts, then we went to Sioux City for State.  It took about a week to find out they would be awarded to All-State.  This year the awards ceremony was at Iowa State University, but it changes every year.  As soon as I walked into the Scheeman Building I knew I wanted to take advantage of the amazing light for some photos.

Like many people I love to break into a fresh new planner each year. I used to pick up new planners all of the time, hoping this would be the one that finally helped me keep life organized. After reading lots of blogs and searching #planner on Instagram an Pinterest I came across many cool planners I had never heard of.   I’ve been using Erin Condren products for the past few years, I’m always excited to see their pretty package arrive.  I used to use their jumbo wall calendar, which was amazing! There was actually room to keep track of everybody’s activities, this year I switched to the Erin Condren Life Planner.
