NUGO Bars Review

NUGO was kind enough to send me some products to try and review.

Here is a little information from their website:
NuGo makes delicious and health snacks that meet everyone’s dietary needs. Our bars taste better than other nutritional foods because of our commitment to using the most wholesome ingredients and baking processes possible. NuGo believes that pure, natural ingredients are both better for you and better tasting. From our very first bar to the latest, we’ve maintained a commitment to creating great snacks without taking shortcuts. Each of our bars is full of the protein and whole grains that every diet needs.

A long time waiting...

I have been waiting for this moment for a loooooooooooooonnngggg time...


No joke, about 2 years ago, I wrote an email to Poptarts and suggested a new flavor (Birthday Cake) to them. Well, what do ya know...the actual flavor name may be slightly different, but hey, it's still the taste I was hoping for! and BOY ARE THESE BABIES GOOD!!!!!!

I also experimented with a new twist to my wrap today... I saw it on another blog and decided to try it out... CREAM CHEESE & TURKEY!
Result: DELICIOUS!!!


For my Social Studies Class, we have to make a Paper Mache Globe...well, I used my time wisely and did it while I was "at work"... Myrtle helped me too! haha

It was fun to be able to do a fun project together, not to mention get it done while "on the job"

Taste of Teaching...

Here was my favorite outfit of the week!
I have spent the entire week at a local elementary school in a third grade classroom.
The students are all really sweet and pretty well behaved. Over half of them are gifted, and the whole class is above average! They are extremely bright and I'm really enjoying hanging out with them. I am gonna miss them between now and November! I will go back and observe for another week, and then I TAKE CHARGE TEACHING Math for a whole week!

I'm super excited! I'm having so much fun! My mentor teacher is wonderful! She is letting me do so much already. I take them around the school ALL BY MYSELF! I feel so grown up :)

Each day I am getting closer and closer to's crazy/scary/exciting all at the same time!

stay tuned...
