my best friend's engagement.

ahh! one of my dearest friends, abby is engaged! i couldn't be more is really all i can think about. it is just 5 months away! ahh. they have been dating for as long as i can remember. and andy finally put a ring on it! this couple loves each other so much and so well. and christ just pours out of both of them. i can't wait to see how their life will turn out! so excited.
i have known sweet abby since i was little. funny thing is we weren't always as close as we are now. if we saw each other out somewhere our mom's made us go say hi. and now she is one of my best friends. i cherish her friendship and couldn't be more thrilled for abby and andy!

snow day.

got snowed in today! our city hasn't seen this much snow since i had to go play! i am still at my mom's house, and we decided to be five years old again and play out in the snow. we built a snowman named sheldon, we made snow angels, and we attempted to sled...our yard doesn't have many hills so we didn't get very far. we ended the day with some hot chocolate and vanilla marshmellows... just what we needed to thaw out!

p.s. we saw this snow(wo)man when we went on a little snowy walk...

to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to reap that which is planted. a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to to mourn, and a time to dance. a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

we all scream for snow cream.

meet georgie and elie. i babysat these sweet girls, and we decided to make snow cream last night since there was lots and lots of snow on the ground. and no night would be complete without a little photo shoot. so we turned on the self timer and our best silly faces. the snow cream turned out to be pink snow cream because of the red sprinkles georgie put in. it was also quite delicious! they were also very hopeful that school would be called i told them a little secret-if you wear your pajamas inside out there is be a better chance that there would be no school. so of course, i tucked them in and said goodnight with their pjs inside out! oh to be young again.

cookie dough brownies.

hopefully the title left your mouth watering...i know mine was while i was baking them! today i was in the mood to bake. so i decided to bake and combine two of my favorite got it-cookie dough and brownies! i was a little hesitant to combine the two, but they turned out delicious. all i did was layer the bottom of the pan with a roll of cookie dough, flattened it out and made my favorite brownie batter and poured on top. super easy. super delicious. super chocolate-y. and my new favorite thing! i will be making these a lot more...enjoy!
