Fantastical Friday

I am declaring myself the Test Taker Beast...because I quite honestly have been beasting so many tests/exams lately. Monday, I took yet another Praxis exam (my fourth) and I was lucky enough to see my score immediately after finishing. I came home and checked my score versus what I needed for the state of TN and I passed! I logged into my Praxis account and found out I also passed my third Praxis that I took back in March :) Yesterday I took one of my class finals and passed it too. I'm very excited that my accelerated path is continuing to be successful.

I didn't upload any pics from my daughter's field trip last week, but I finally got one to sum it all up...this is the sugar shack where they boil the sap. Snow and ice all around :/

And yesterday morning I got an updated picture of the front yard. It turns out I have a picture from almost exactly 2 months ago of the same view. What a difference! (FINALLY)

I've been spring cleaning like a maniac this last week too, which also includes bookmarks and Pinterest boards. Online spring cleaning...that's a thing, right?

Anyways, I have bookmarked a million (not a far stretch) blogs to go back through their archives from the very first recipe to the newest ones to discover new recipes that I may have missed prior to following the blog. This week I went through Love From the Oven, Foodess, Rumbly in My Tumbly, Shugary Sweets, and Favorite Family Recipes.

So here are some tasty treats...mostly sweets (I'm so bad!) I discovered from the last week or so:
