Look What I Made!


Peanut Butter Cookies!

I have literally never made peanut butter cookies before.  Well I probably helped my mom make them at some point growing up.

I don't like peanut butter cookies, or I didn't last time I tried them, and now I don't want to try them again.  Nothing good can come from liking another type of dessert!

Anyways, last night Michael brought me home tons of baking stuff because I had been complaining that I couldn't bake for Christmas.  He also bought me a poinsettia and a rose because he is a sweetie and knows I have been stressed out lately and he loves me.  He remembered everything: flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, brown sugar, powdered sugar, chocolate chips.  He even bought be some yeast in case I wanted to make rolls!  I asked him if there was anything he wanted me to make, and he said peanut butter cookies.  So this morning I did (Hadlee helped.  And by help I mean broke an egg on the counter because she thought cracking an egg meant squeezing it really hard with both hands.  She also dumped flour all over the counter, which I then had to sweep - with my hand not the broom, yuck! - into the bowl because I had no idea how much had dumped on the counter and how much had made it into the bowl, but she had fun, so I guess that is what counts.).

According to Hadlee and Michael they are good.  That made me happy because my chocolate chip cookies tend to be a disaster.  Plus the recipe kept telling me to use an electric mixer, and I don't happen to own one of those, it is all elbow grease around here!

I used my Better Homes and Gardens Recipe Book, and the recipe happened to be on the website, so I can share it here with you.  The only change I made was that I cooked them for a minute or two longer, because I am always afraid things are not cooked enough.  Oh and I didn't cool them on a wire rack, because, like an electric mixer, I don't own one.  I know I did a pretty good job at getting them the right size, because the yield is 36 cookies, and I made 34!

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
