Double Peanut Butter Cookies

I love love love looovvveee peanut butter….no joke used to go through an entire Costco sized jar of it in a matter of weeks. So I thought I would make some peanut butter cookies because peanut butter cookies are always amazing! The recipe I ended up using was something I kind of made up as I went along. Double PB Chocolate Chip Cookies 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) 1 egg 2 tbsp vanilla 3/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup white...

A Cookie Experiment

I’ve been wanting to experiment more with my baking, but haven’t had much time recently. It’s something I used to do every Friday afternoon in school, but now that I’m working, there seems to be both more and less time…. Is it just me, or does it seem like once the weather gets warmer, there are so many things to do in a day there is no way you can possibly get them all done? If you’re anything like me at...

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I could not be more excited for the weekend…I’ve had training all week long, which has been great and I’ve learned tons, but its been 10 hours a day west coast time… yep…11am to 9pm here. I’m loving learning a new skill, but man oh man am I not digging the hours. However, I do have some fun new favorites for you guys! This.This is my life…I love my fitbit and am super obsessed with any and all...

Saving Money

We all have things that we need to save money for…Life in general, a trip, a new car, you name it. Whatever it is you probably need to save for it, especially if you’re like me and are just out of school. Learning to save money can be a real challenge. I’ve never been a big spender, but I also never really kept track of what I was spending outside of rent and utilities at school. Now that I’m attempting...

All the activities

What a week it’s been…it was great. I might be actually starting to like living in Arlington. I mean I never disliked it, but it’s taken a while to grow on me. This past week was my last week at my current project and now I have three weeks of training and getting ready for my new one. I can’t wait! I’m so excited to learn something new. The week started out with the Super Bowl, which was so much...

What a week

The past week was definitely a little more hectic than usual…everything seemed to be happening at work and in my normal life. I had some pretty big life changes happen, but even though I’m still figuring it all out, I think that it was good. Change is one of those things that just makes you uncomfortable, sometimes it makes you sad, but once you come around the other side, it all makes sense and you can usually see it’s for...

Ski Trip adventures and some food

This past weekend I went on a ski trip with a bunch of people from work, which was super fun! Our company rented out some houses and we each paid a bit to get our lift tickets and things like that. I actually don’t know how to ski or snowboard, so I was lucky that the ski resort had snow tubing, which I have done before and I find to be super fun! Luckily a bunch of the other people...

Somehow one of the most gross looking foods is the best

Have you ever thought about how some of the best foods, basically all comfort foods, are some of the most nasty looking things? I made chili this week, which I have a recipe for that I’ll share in a minute, but I was looking at it as I was eating it today at work and man is that stuff gross looking. And so are mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and a whole host of other foods…they just don’t look that...

I’ve been M.I.A for a while I know…I’m working on a post all about why/a recap of the last several months, but really, I’ve missed writing and taking pictures of random tid bits of my life a lot. This time around I want to do better 🙂 Anyways, here are some of the articles and things that I’ve been enjoying recently! I’ve been breaking out more recently and was wondering why…it’s not that it’s unusual for me, it was just...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I know I know, it’s late, but Happy Thanksgiving and now officially, MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I hope everyone’s holiday weekend was filled with tons of food and family and friends! Mine certainly was and it was great 🙂 I went over to my parent’s house on Wednesday night and was able to go to a Friendsgiving at my friend Amanda’s house. It had been a little while since I had seen her and even longer since I’d seen her family, so...
