~Good morning! B’s traveling this week, so it’s just the little boys and I! Not sure what our plans are yet (besides the dentist), but we’ll find something to do.
~I made Chocolate Chip Cookies from the Magnolia Table Cookbook for a BBQ this weekend and OMG they are amazing. I usually make my Aunt Karen’s Cookies, but I was out of oatmeal, so I gave these a go. They have 1/2 the butter that most cookies do and use only brown sugar (no white sugar) and I thought, no way, these are going to be gross. Nope. Get this cookbook and make these cookies. NOW. One tip: Roll your dough in a ball instead of just dropping the dough on the cookie sheet. They just look prettier.
~My year of reading continues! I finished up Final Girls over the weekend and will be starting Behind Closed Doors tonight. I am jon the waiting list at the library for Sharp Objects and would *like* to get it read before I start watching the new HBO series, but I doubt I will be able to hold off! One book I didn’t like that I finished recently was Mrs.: A Novel I had no idea who was talking, how they were all related or really what the book was about until the last like two chapters. This one was a miss (no pun intended).
~I am still loving Pure Barre and have been going 3-4x/week. I’m still running and cycling as well. I’ve been working out on a regular basis for just over a year now and it’s coming up on two years from when I decided it was time to lose the “baby” weight. I am planning on doing a “how I lost the weight” post, so stay tuned for that!
That’s it from here. Have a great week!
