Today is the very last day of school for me.

Tonight, along with my class group, I will present my client with the marketing packet that we created for them and then I will be done with school. I will be a graduate of a bachelors degree in Organizational Management. Oh the relief I will feel to not have to worry about school work anymore.

A while back I mentioned that I was accepted into an MBA program. I’ve decided to put that on hold. The cost of attendance is astronomical and I think I wanted to do the program for all the wrong reasons. Distinction. Being able to add MBA to the end of my name when I sign my signature. Those aren’t great reasons to pursue and MBA and they do not justify  going into debt close to $30k. To some people, those reasons probably justify the cost well enough. But for me, they do not.

I’m ready to pursue my career, to begin my career. I don’t quite understand it but having that degree makes me feel like I’ve reached a new beginning. I’ve been working in the business field for nearly 14 years and for a good chunk of that time, I was also pursuing my degree. But now that I am finished with school,  I feel like I’m ready to totally jump into the business world and devote the time and commitment to my job that I never totally put forth before. Working full time and, at times, taking on a full-time course load can really wear a gal down.

So cheers to a new beginning and cue the Strawberry Cookies and Cream Kefir Shake celebration time.

This shake, it’s pretty freaking amazing. I wouldn’t call it a healthy shake but I would call it a healthier shake. It’s not low fat nor is it sugar free but it’s full of probiotics, thanks to Lifeway Kefir Low Fat Cultured Milk Smoothies. I picked up a 32oz bottle of the strawberry flavored Lifeway Kefir Smoothie from the dairy section at my local Winn Dixie. Being the food blogger that I am, I pondered what #KefirCreations I would make with this. Of course, I could just drink it as is, because it tastes pretty darn good, but I wanted to make something with it.

Somehow a package of Oreo cookies made it into my basket as I was shopping. Ultimately, some of those Oreo cookies made it into the shake that I’m sharing with you today. So did some vanilla ice cream and a little of the Lifeway Strawberry Kefir Smoothie. I threw all of those things into my blender, poured into two glasses and then topped with whipped cream, crushed Oreos and SPRINKLES. Then I went to town. So did Ken. I think he liked it. I think you will too. Enjoy the recipe and get a coupon for Lifeway Kefir here.

    Congratulations Julie! You must be so happy to be done. There’s no way I would have the energy for all that. Maybe a kefir shake would give me some extra energy ;)
    Love that you combined the strawberry flavor with oreos. Yum!

    Yay, congratulations Julie!!! What a great achievement – so so happy for you :) This shake looks so pretty! Strawberries and cookies and cream sound delicious together!

    These are so super cute, Julie! And I totally get what you mean about school – it’s a huge factor in why I pursued my masters in Holland (giant price cut). You might even find that by the time you can finance it, you don’t want/need it anymore.

    But in the meantime, shakes. Lot’s of em. Cause girl, these look good.
