Tried it Tuesday and Bloglovin' Giveaway!

Today is a day for linkys! My goal this summer is to get involved with more linkys! First, I am linking up for the first time with Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tuesday!

This summer I have decided to learn to cook. I am starting out simple. Pampered Chef has a great recipe for something called a Taco Ring. I really prefer chicken to ground beef, though. So, I turned to Pinterest and starting looking around for a version with chicken. I found this delicious recipe.  I modified the recipe slightly. I left out the olives and tortilla chips. Also, I substituted greek yogurt for sour cream. You really cannot tell the difference!

In regards to school, I have seen some beautiful planners out there. I absolutely love the color scheme yellow and gray. Once I saw this planner from A Modern Teacher, I knew I had to have it. 

I personalized the pages, printed them, and then went to FedEx Office. I chose the frosted cover and coil binding. Before binding, I added some tabs to make it easier to find which section I needed. I cannot wait to use it this upcoming school year!

Next, is my "tried-it" for blogging. I am trying Rafflecopter for the first time! The lovely ladies over at Collaboration Cuties are hosting a linky to help encourage people to switch over to bloglovin', since our beloved Google Reader will no longer be with us.

As incentive, everyone linking up is hosting a giveaway! For my giveaway, I am letting one lucky winner choose two items from my TPT store. To enter, you need to follow my blog on bloglovin'. There is a link in the rafflecopter, or you can click the button on the right side of my blog.

  2. You could link this post up with another... I have a linky party this summer just for recipes. Your taco ring would fit right in with my "Eating, Drinking, & Linking, Oh My!"

  5. What tabs did you add to your planner? I love all of your ideas. I'm moving from 5th grade to an interventionist and your ideas are fabulous. Love your site.

    1. Thanks! Welcome to intervention! I am glad to share idea! My tabs say: Weekly, Monthly, Checklists, and Notes. I used a template from this site:
