One Of My Greatest Accomplishments

As you may or may not know, making chocolate chip cookies is NOT my thing.

Pretty much every time I make them they either turn out like this:
Yup, a sad pile of cookie mess that has to be scraped off of the cookie sheet

Or just kind of hockey puck like.

But since they are the only cookie I really like (other than snickerdoodles.  Why do I never make snickerdoodles?), plus it is the best cookie dough ever, I try to make them at least twice a year.  This time I had a success.  In case you are doubting the believability of my chocolate chip cookie fails, I present the following conversation:

After he got home and tasted them (and by taste I mean ate like six) he told me I should blog about it LOL)
To make these cookies I used The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from Betty Crocker.  I omitted the nuts.  And I didn't use the full amount of chocolate chips because I like eating them so some were missing.
 

Hadlee helped me make them
Oh my goodness, look at this delicious looking dough.  How I manged to save any of it for actually cookie baking is beyond my comprehension :)

Soft, edible chocolate chip cookies!
It is pretty ridiculous how proud I am of these cookies, I really feel like I should never make them again, and quit while I am on top.

  1. If I liked chocolate I'm sure they would look yummy! They look like they are cooked to perfection. I love snickerdoodles. Next time we get together we should make some!

  2. Have you ever tried oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips? It's like the best of both worlds for me!

    Although snickerdoodles with chocolate chips might be mighty tasty...

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…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
