Team Work Relief Society Night | RSU – Relief Society University

Team Work Relief Society Night | NothingButCountry.com

The above was our invitation we gave out. Printed it up and actually cut it out like a magaphone on the Silhouette machine. So it was a fun “shaped” invitation.

September our theme was TEAM WORK for Relief Society. And our topic was Visiting Teaching. Working as a team with your partner when you go visit the other sisters in the the ward you are assigned to. We had a wonderful speaker that gave us tips on fun Relief Society  visits for each month, and what type of Visiting Teacher are we. It was a great night. Decided the class was like a RSU- Relief Society University class and it gave all the sisters in the ward to show off their favorite teams. Football- college/nfl or any sport or any HS etc. It was fun It was decorated sports like and the sisters brought in some of their fun team memorabilia. It turned out great.

The tables were pretty easy to decorate. Made paper banners and stuck them in team cups. Football and plates. Seems football stuff was everywhere I looked so that made it all the more fun. Dollar Tree had them. We had jelly beans and popcorn on the table the sisters to enjoy during the class.

The Jelly Beans also had a deeper meaning which I thought tied in well with the thoughts of working as a team because not everyone is the same and we may need to work with all types of people and visit all types of sisters. :)

Then at the very END of the night The sisters made bags of candy from our candy table up.  It was a way they made up a bag of candy to give to the sisters they will go visit that month.  Even if the sister was at the evening, we provided blank tags to tie onto the bags and allow each “TEAM” to write a message to those they will go visit. So when they went to visit them it was still a surprise to what the message might say.

We have a wonderful group of sisters and they all pitched in donating candy to the candy table. It was a great night and lots of team spirit. The sisters also were encouraged to dress in their team best. :)  I loved it. Maybe it was more for ME but I totally enjoyed putting this night together with my wonderful Committee.

 







Minecraft Birthday Party

Minecraft Birthday Party | NothingButCountry.com

My daughter wanted a Minecraft party. We had a budget to try and do it for no more than 50.00 total. I think we did pretty well. Alot of stuff we either had on hand already or the Dollar Tree had most of what we ended up using.

These GEM stickers were wall stickers found in the Dollar Tree. And I made a sign for the door.

Creeperade was green tinted lemonade. It was a hot day and her friends played in a huge blow up pool and water guns etc. Simple but they were so thrilled.

All the silly party kids. Came in from playing in the pool outside. We served pizza rolls (I am a couponer and had them stocked up in my freezer) Along with creeperade and all the yummy candy/treats from the table for lunch. They also made up baggies to go home with whatever was left on the table for their goodie bags. We like to really treat our friends with nice goodie bags. One of my favorite things to do. :)

She had a great party. I am proud how it turned out!! Happy 10th Birthday Baby Girl!! Our newest DOUBLE DIGIT KIDLET!

Holy Guacamole! Pool Party Fiesta | Relief Society Night | NothingButCountry.com

Our end of Summer Break pool party happens every year. This year we decided to go with a fun mexican theme and have a taco salad bar and desserts. It was fun.

The ladies in the church signed up for various toppings we had on a list and brought them. We provided the meat and lemonade :)

Decorating was super easy!  Decorations I either had or collected from other ladies in the church. We then used the maragrita glasses on the tables to hold skittles or M&M’s. Mexican is such a fun theme. Lots of colors and these candies were perfect.

Tissue paper flowers were made and very inexpensive.

Zarepes were used for runners on our tables.

YUM!! DINNER!! IT WAS GOOD!!!

What was even better for us- we had a closet full of various plates from other activities over the years. Events when we were unable to use up all the plates. We saved money on our budget and used up all the left over colorful plates. SCORE!! I love being thrifty and never want to throw anything away or be wasteful. This was the perfect way to do that! Everyone got a kick out of it.

It was a fun night. We had mexican music playing over a speaker and lots of dancing, swimming and eating to be had. Great way to end the summer break!







Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

These blueberry bites are SO GOOD!!! Healthy too and my kids think they are icecream :)  Even better!

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

I mixed plain green yogurt with a little bit of lemon juice and splenda/honey/agave. Whatever sweetener you desire. I did not measure. I just added till I got the desired sweetness.

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

I used bamboo skewers. One to stab the fresh blueberry and dip in my greek yogurt mix and the other to help slide it off. I put them on a wax paper/cookie sheet.  I dipped each one.

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

I filled up a full cookie sheet of dipped berries.

I then placed the cookie sheet into the deep freezer till they were completely frozen and I was able to lift off each blueberry.

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

To store them, I just placed them all into a ziptop baggie and put them back in the freezer. They are ready to pop in our mouth on a hot summer day!  They are very delicious. And very healthy too.
