Like cake batter... LOVE THESE

These have NOTHING to do with cake batter.. Unless you count that she just helped me make some of these yummy cookies mentioned below! However.. I just wanted to point out the little pony on top of her cute little head she is finally letting me do on good days. Oh and I loved how cute her fat thighs looked with her leg warmers(note the tile floor.) Mykah is starting to thin out so I gotta love it while I can! She is getting so big a couple little milestones...She has learned to fold her arms to say her prayers! This girl will sit (most of the time) with her arms folded while we do am & pm prayers. she also brushes her own teeth! Well I gotta go back through just to be sure but for the most part shes got it down! Growing up! Onto the cookies......

Like cake batter.. I DO! Just ask anyone who knows me next to frosting its my fave. So in case you have been living under a rock and have never heard of these cookies here ya go;

Package of cake mix (I like yellow or funfetti, devils food is yummy too)

2 eggs

1/3 cup veg. oil

any mix ins (choc chips, candy bits, whatever)

Mix cake mix, eggs, and oil all together till completely mixed. It will be like dough. Add your mix ins. Cook for about 10-15 mins @ 350 Obviously ovens vary and so does the size of the cookie but I like mine softer so I do about 11 mins!

Our fave combos; Yellow cake & Reese's pieces bites(they are like m&ms)

Devils food cake & choc. chips(I make these into ice cream sandwiches and roll the exposed sides in sprinkles, nuts, mini cho. chips...) wrap in aluminum foil and your set.

Funfetti cake mix with lots of frosting on top.

As you can see you can come up with tons! If you already make em what are your faves? Happy baking!

Troubled times call for a simpler life

We are obviously living in troubled times. A while back(don't remember when exactly) President Packer spoke about the trials we are facing these days in this time, his talk was very frank and to the point. I really wish I could remember when I heard it! However the thing that really sunk in to my soul was how amidst all the chaos it is still a wonderful time to be raising children and a wonderful time to be alive. I cant think of many who have not been affected one way or another in these tough times. We have all heard about the failing economy, and I find it hard some days to find the positive in my own life. I hate those days, but I am happy to say they are coming less and less;) just keepin it real.. sorry. I know mine have to do with things other then just the economy but all the same they are there. Going back to President Packers talk about it being a wonderful time to raise a family... I remind myself of how wonderful it is to have the simple things in life; food, clothing, shelter, my babies tummy full, my family, sweet friends, and so much more. When I focus on the good it always seems "THE LAW OF ATTRACTION"(watch the movie the secret) kicks in and viola I have even more to be grateful for. It is a wonderful time to be raising a family, it is a wonderful time to be alive. Sometimes I am guilty of making life so much harder then it has to be.. but I am finally learning to be happy with what I was given no matter if it pertains to my housing situation or the clothes I wear, or the body I have. My circumstances have not changed but I have. I am grateful to be have such a sweet little girl, a HOT husband who is always willing to help, loving family who has allowed us to stay with them, family who has shown so much love and support, loving friends and sisters who allow me to vent and forget life with.. blah blah blah... Life is simple, its me that complicates it.

Well I have to admit I kinda got off subject. I was gonna post some cleaning tips for Organic cleaners.. Organic cleaners.. being simple.. simple times.. see where I was going.. yea prob not;) That being said now I use my time to blog about being grateful. Cleaners will have to wait till tomorrow. Yes I procrastinate ALL the TIME. I like to blame it on the I still have a new baby.. only now she is 1 and I am kinda not getting by with that anymore;)
