It’s been two weeks since Brian and I unpacked our bags and many boxes in our very first house as homeowners.
Goodness has time flown!
I took a much needed (yet unplanned) social media detox during that time period. Sure, I was occasionally on Instagram stories and checking the various outlets but I didn’t write my typical blog posts, share my normal amount, or engage all that much in the digital world.
This move was a pretty big deal, and I really wanted to take the two weeks before Brian started working to really soak in our new home and our time together in this new chapter of life.
Now that two weeks have past, all of the boxes are unpacked and put away but there is still so much to do! I’m really trying to take things one moment at a time so I don’t miss a single beat.
These granola bars are part of some of those special moments we have created in our new house.
Some advice we received from friends that are homeowners was to meet our neighbors right away, so to make things easier I made a few batches of these granola bars to share with these new people in our lives.
They come together so quickly (15 minutes!) require no baking time, and can be stored in the freezer until you are ready to cut them or after they are already cut for use at a later date.
Gordman’s reached out to me asking to utilize some of their fun kitchen equipment. Perfect timing for a new home owner!
I chose to purchase the mixing bowls in the pictures above, an adorable kitchen towel with fringe, a serving platter (particularly for all of the gatherings we plan on hosting!), and some very cute glass containers that will be perfect for chia seed jam, chia pudding, or overnight oats.
All of the items together ONLY cost $50. There were so many adorable items in the store for home decorating, kitchen accessorizing, and making a house fit for a party or get together. My only wish is that the location was closer to my house!
Now, I’m off to go paint some furniture and clean up the house!
Enjoy these granola bars, and share with those special to you 🙂#ad Homemade No Bake Granola Bars that only take 15 minutes to whip up! Perfect for snacking or… Click To Tweet
