My best girl, Jenny and I put together a mint and coral gender reveal for my sister who is pregnant with baby number 4! My sister, Veronica decided that since this is her last child, she wanted to find out as a family what gender the baby was going to be. Jenny and I put our heads together over lunch and voila! a party was born! We decided we wanted to go with the colors coral and mint instead of the traditional pink and blue. We only had a couple weeks to plan but I think we hit it out of the park! Veronica and her family were thrilled and I am so glad we got to help celebrate with them!

I can’t believe we are already thinking about teacher appreciation gifts. Summer is going to be here before we know it! I am sure you have heard about the new Trader Joe’s that opened last month; I love running in there and grabbing their cookie butter, fresh flowers, etc. This easy and inexpensive teacher appreciation gift is a great option for busy families and Moms, like myself!

I had a friend grab me a couple extra jars of so I could do this. I have 3 kids (with one on the way!) that have at least 2-4 teachers each so teacher appreciation gifts need to be affordable and easy – because, that’s a lot of teachers!

Mix cookie dough, then separate into two separate bowls. Add about 20 drops of food coloring into each bowl then mix with a spoon. The darker the dough the better so the color does not fade when cooking.

Earth Day Cookiedough prep Grab a little bit of dough from each color and roll into a ball. If the mixture is too sticky, add a few tablespoons of cooking flour so its not sticky. You can also put powder on your hands.
