The 'ME' behind From Apples to Oranges!

First post on the blog, so here we go! I am just a simple girl who loves her job as a preschool teacher but what I love most that you will soon find out is living the country life with my amazing hubby and two pups! I love to cook simple, yummy, most the time healthy, but good foods! Going to try and use this blog to display awesome stuff to do with your kiddos and what I do with mine in the classroom (the "Apple" part) and also my lifestyle of being a country wifey and learning as I go! (The "Orange" part) I love to make a simple Tuesday night dinner for the two of us something to remember, so if that means lighting a few more candles or bringing out the china then that's what I'll do!  Hope you Enjoy!
Xoxo Ali!
This is me, in all my best! Throw on a little apron and it automatically makes you feel like a better cook! (Asparagus salad recipe to come soon!)
Meet the man behind my heart, Garrett! He is one of the hardest working men I know! You will see me talk and refer to this amazing man ALOT! 
Here are my pups Max (brown and white) my little buddy! He is little but mighty, my guard dog! And then there's Macie Sue (black and white) the sweetest border collie you will ever meet! This girl is always up for a hug and some love! 
This my friends, is one of our simple date nights! Take five minutes to set the table a little special and different each time and keep that spark alive in your own backyard! So many ideas and recipes to come!!

A day working on the ranch with these guys! Let me tell you hours in the orange trees can still be a good time! 

I hope you all enjoyed learning a little bit about me! Please come back to visit From Apples to Oranges for fun ideas, recipes and goods to do with the kiddos!
