Today in History: July 21

Oops!  I'm a day late for this edition of "Today in History" - time slipped away from me!  So, let's call this one "Yesterday in History".  Which, I suppose, in a bit redundant, right?  

On July 10, 1925, the "Monkey Trial" began in Tennessee.  John Scopes, a teacher, was accused of breaking Tennessee law by teaching evolution.  What's really interesting about this is that Scopes planned to get accused of this - he wanted to go on trial for it because he wanted to bring awareness of what was going on and get the law changed.

On July 21, 1925, the Monkey Trial closed with a guilty verdict - but one that the defense had asked for, in order to leave open the chance of an appeal.  The law is always interesting to read about - I can't make this stuff up!

If you want to read more about this, I highly recommend doing so.  It's pretty interesting!  I'll add links to this post :)

But for now, do you want to try Chunky Monkey Shakeology?  (Hint: the answer should be YES because this stuff is delicious!)

I'd love to hear what you think of this one if you try it!  And, as always, if you'd like to try Shakeology for the first time, please let me know.  I have options to order packets along the right-hand side of this screen (if you're on a mobile device, you might have to view the full page to see it), or you can comment below or shoot me a message at ashleykrek@gmail.com.

This is one of my new favorites (though I do limit it because of the peanut butter and honey!)

Until next time,
