The BIG 2-4 and Something Sweet

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Hi everyone!

I would like to make today's post special for my sweet husband. He is the most genuine person I know and he makes me laugh every day (not to mention he is quite good with home improvement projects). I am SO thankful for him and everything he has brought to my life. So...happy 24th birthday Bryan!! I am so excited to see what your 24th year holds for the two of us (or, I guess he's beginning his 25th year...yikes, he's old!). I love you!!

(Um, yes. The oreo cake is genius.)
Sadley, Bryan and I won't be together for his birthday (this is the 6th, yes sixth year that this has happened), because he has to go to coaching camp for baseball....sad day. But we plan on celebrating with a cake and everything when he gets back!!

 In honor of Bryan's birthday, I have chosen to share one of his all-time favorite dessert recipes: Chocolate Chip Cookies! My mother-in-law, Judy, gave me this recipe last summer and I will be forever grateful! We've made these approximately 129,294,345 times since then and now you can too!

Ingredients: (Makes about 32 cookies)

-2 1/4 cups flour
-3/4 cups sugar
-3/4 cups light brown sugar
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 sticks of butter, softened
-2 eggs
-1 cup chocolate chips

(that was all from memory, yessssss)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Place on greased baking sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown.


I can have a batch of these in the oven in 10 minutes--they are so easy to make so you have no excuse not to try them!

I would also like to take this moment to make a belated birthday shout-out to my Aunt Kathy (I told you I would do it!! *insert evil laugh here*). Happy **th Birthday, Kathy!! Sorry I forgot!! Love you!


  1. Thanks for the shout-out...when you get my age, it's just another day! Happy Birthday to Bryan! He is now working on a quarter of a century old!
    It was great talking with you! What a great job you both have done on your is beautiful! I am so proud of "ya'll"!!!
    Love you,

  2. Thanks Kathy! We love you too!! And remember "you're only as old as you act!!"
