Mom guilt

Okay, so I've lost the content to this post TWICE, so let me just say that both posts were clever and funny and very telling. 


So anyyyywaaaayyy, sometimes I have mom guilt.

My sweet, smart, talented and beautiful Savannah has her first away basketball game today and I can't go.

To compensate for that guilt, I'm making her and her teammates cookies.

Easy. Cheap. Delicious.

Cake mix cookies are for when you realize you don't have time to accomplish the Martha Stewart version. (Or any scratch version.)

Cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup veggie oil (somehow there's less guilt saying 'Veggie'.)

Did I mention that these are so easy, so inexpensive, so fast and fun? 

So tell the guilt to suck it go away and make some cookies today.

 I added a wee bit more powdered sugar.
I don't even feel a bit guilty about that...

 And I don't even feel guilty for eating two.

Okay, yes I do...

winter wonderland

Here are a few of the views that we get to enjoy here in the winter. It may be fall (or summer) for some, but here, it's full on winter.

Pristine, country, winter, beauty.

I can almost here the sleigh bells...

Snow is glistening...

Make sure you glove up when you go walking in this winter wonderland because it's frost bite weather.

First snow...

It snowed.

So I made bread.

Internet is off and on again so that leaves laundry and cleaning and baking.

At least baking is fun...

I'm going to break out the crock pot and put some soup on to go with that delicious bread.

I guess there are a few good things about the snow...

Oh, and Happy Birthday Marine Corps!  Ooh Rah!!!
