No Bake Apricot Bars

Man, I sure wish I had a picture of these delicious Apricot Bars for you...no worries, the recipe is found here at Cookies and Kate. These are delicious and so easy to make.

I actually put two recipes together and made a no bake apricot bar with shredded coconut crust. Coconut crust recipe here from Chocolate Covered Katie. (must be something about those Katies...)

I made these bars for my classmates and they LOVED it! I mean, compliments were flowing. I highly recommend making these bars. Great for snacking! Next time I make, I'll be sure to take a photo and update this post.

Yoga Plus

I am really loving Mockingbird Yoga. I know I wrote about this the other day, but I love this place so much I had to rave about it again.

Today I took a yoga class with Mark and I loved the way the class started. Mark spoke to us about the Four Unlimited Attributes that we all possess and wanted us to focus on these are we practiced yoga today. They are:
