Are you guys done with your holiday baking? I was really good. I baked a few days ago. I made blondies, cookies, and truffles to hand out to Mike’s coworkers and our neighbors. However, since I made them, I have also consumed like 50% of the finished products. Oops! [Read more…]
While you guys are reading this, I will be prepped and ready for my second c-section and the arrival of our second little boy. That’s right. I will be freaking out and being wheeled into an operating room while you guys are all cozy in your house or at work reading about cookies.
I have so many emotions flowing through my body right now. I kind of think it adds up to something like this; 70% nervous, 20% excited, and 10% overwhelmed.

The first time I saw Troop Beverly Hills I was at a sleepover birthday party. We literally all stood up on top of our sleeping bags and did the Freddy along with Shelley Long. Then we went back to snuggling with our plush Troll babies with the little poof of hair and Puffalumps. BTW we were all maybe 12 years old. [Read more…]
I have been trying my best to not overwhelm you with cookie and sweets recipes this month. I think I have been doing pretty well. Although, I do have two more sweets recipes up my sleeve before Christmas juuuust in case you are in need of more things to add to your holiday baking list (or your waistline). [Read more…]
