Over the summer our school has a summer crew that does all the work that can’t be done during the school year. For a little extra cash I worked this summer on the paint crew. So, for those who know we well, know I LOVE TO PAINT!!!!!

Perhaps I’m slightly obsessed with painting. So, the paint crew seemed like the right choice and it was……I truly enjoyed it.

But, I had to pack a lunch everyday and I really tried to pack items that did not need refrigeration. No Bake Tropical Bites were perfect. Just popped them into a ziplock bag, and off I went. Now, I usually ate them for breakfast, they have oatmeal and that’s breakfast.
