So it’s not officially summer yet but it feels like it! School is out or almost out for most kids and it is H-O-T! What are your summer plans? We are going camping next week which hopefully goes well. With a 4 and 2 year old you never know how it’s going to go, especially since this is their first time. Hopefully it will be a blast. We have a family reunion in Washington and my brother and his family will be visiting from Ohio. Along with all the fun things that summer brings I think it’s going to be great!
This week is SUPER busy for me! My sister-in-law is getting married on Thursday. I am so excited for her! I’ve been busy with her bridal shower and upcoming reception. She wanted to have a cookie bar and I am in charge of Inside Out and Chocolate Chip Cookies. I was supposed to make 12 dozen but ended up with a little more than expected, 15 dozen. But it will be great! I made all the dough today and will bake it tomorrow.
That’s a LOT of cookie dough! Thanks to my mom for watching my kids! I couldn’t have done it without her. They love to help me bake. Their favorite is to measure and dump the ingredients in the bowl. It’s super cute but not practical for the amount of cookie dough I needed to make today.
Over the last couple months since I knew I’d be in charge of chocolate chip cookies I researched the perfect recipe and have perfected it! I can’t wait to share it with you guys on Tuesday! It’s the best!

Snickers are awesome and even better in cookies!

Is anyone else obsessed with Trader Joe’s? I don’t go there often but I LOVE everything I buy when I go there! We tried some new things last time and boy was it all amazing! We especially loved these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups! Between the two of us we made it last over a month! I was pretty proud!
We took the boys to JCPenney to get their pictures taken. The photographer was amazing and the pictures turned out great! Now if I could get them to look at me and smile when I take pictures. lol!
I’m in love with Waffle Luv! I took Derek’s younger siblings to try it out and they fell in love too. They serve Belgian style waffles. My favorite is the waffle with cream and strawberries. It’s to-die-for! Now I just need to figure out a good recipe to use so I can make it on my own! Between you and me I tried a recipe and it was a major fail. But honestly I think the recipe just wasn’t good. So I want to try again.
I hope you all have a wonderful June! What fun plans do you have this month?
My little guys turns 5! I can’t believe it but I am so excited for him. He can’t wait!
