In the Kitchen: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

[picture from}
Now, I'm not usually one for desserts with peanut butter in them.  But it was one of my co-worker's birthday today and I knew she liked peanut butter stuff.  After a little bit of google-ing, I came across THIS RECIPE and it has changed my view on peanut butter desserts for the better.  They have to be the best peanut butter cookies I've ever had and I just couldn't go on without sharing the recipe with you all!  They seriously have the best consistency.  I made one slight adjustment to the ones that I made.  I didn't have any peanut butter chips, so I threw about 5 Reese's cups into a food processor and tossed them in with the chocolate chips... and it was glorious! Anyways, I hope a few of you get the chance to enjoy these cookies as much as I did! :)

Baby Announcement Poster

One of my best friends had her first little baby  about 4 weeks ago and I just couldn't help but surprise her with a little gift since my husband was going to visit them in Colorado!  I saw something similar on pinterest a few weeks ago and knew that I could easily make one for Ashley and her little boy's new room. It has all of the baby's birth information on it; something I know Ashely (and any mom) will cherish! 

I was so surprised at how easy this was to create!  A simple design program + one piece of cardstock + a frame (mine was from Michael's)= one cute gift!  So simple yet very meaningful! 

And here's a little picture of the cute little fella!  Braxton Liam Baughn.  Nothing short of adorable!

HAPPY WEEKEND to you all!  Go do something creative (even if that means stealing ideas off of pinterest)!!  :)
