*A coffee pot (mine is a one cup brewer)
*small Tupperware containers
*tea bag (I used Raspberry)
Brew one cup of the tea in the coffee pot. Combine the jello with the hot tea immediately and stir until dissolved. Stir in one cup of cold water and pour into individual containers. Refrigerate until set then enjoy! 0 points plus and so yummy!

1 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs maple syrup
1/4 cup dried fruit
1 cup rolled oats
(I didn't have nuts or I would have added them too)
I microwaved the oil and syrup for 45 seconds and added it to the dry ingredients. I put that in the crockpot for about an hour with the top off. Then I transferred it to a plate to dry. It turned out crisp and sweet! I love the coconut flavor!
It makes five 1/4 cup servings and is around 3 weight watcher points plus value.
p.s. I did this post with my new iPhone! I love it!!

Me, my bridesmaids, and my mom went shopping last weekend for my wedding dress! We went shopping in madison on Friday and went to New Glarus (about 30 min away) on Saturday. We had a blast!
We ate at Ella’s Deli – the most unique restaurant in Madison! All of the walls and tables are covered with animated vintage toys. I loved it as a kid and I still love it!
An here is the beautiful Madison Wisconsin! I love all the unique stores on State’s Street.
On Saturday I got my dress at Brandi's Bridal! I did some research before and found that it was voted the best bridal store in Wisconsin every year since 2006!
They had a great selection! I ended up saying “yes” to my dress with the help of my girls!
I’m gonna keep my selection a secret though! ;)
It was a great weekend :)

Before I got engaged I looked at some really cute save the date post cards on some popular websites and I saved a few of my favorites on Pinterest. When I looked back (when I had a budget in mind) I was shocked at the prices! Those websites wanted at least a dollar a piece and some close to two dollars for one card! I thought to myself there had to be something cheaper.
Here is what I made!

So… I debated whether or not to do this post because this site is so good it should be a secret.. ;) I found by far the cheapest way to do save the dates that I have seen!
The site is Vistaprint.com! For 100 postcards you could pay as little as $17.49! Compared to over $100-$200!! The secret is to make your own postcard and NOT to use a template.
(I believe the regular price is $24.99 but there appeared to be a sale when I took the screen shots. That’s still only 24 cents a piece!)
Here is the tutorial:
This could easily work for birth announcements, graduations, or any other event! I’m going to do the thank you cards this way as well!
