Graduation Cookies

So graduation season was months and months ago. But as we've already established, I am months and months behind and re-entry into the real world will likely be painful and is coming sooner than I like.

My sister-in-law asked me to make these for her daughter to give to her dance friends that were graduating. Lucky for everyone, I had already baked these cookies and had them in the freezer for another project (which never happened).

Baby Girl Shower Cookies

I made these for a woman at work who was pregnant the same time I was - our due dates were only days apart.I referred to her as the "other pregnant lady" for months. I enjoyed doing these and may have pretended they were for my own baby (I think our babies were born 6 days apart).

Apple Season

It's apple season and one of my favorite apple desserts is... all of them. Okay really, it's apple crisp. Quick and delicious.

Are You Tough Enough?

Last fall my brother-in-law started recruiting people to run a big event/obstacle type run. The group decided on the Tough Mudder and for half a second I considered signing up too. Then I remembered I hate running and I was trying to get pregnant. Call me stingy, but I didn't want to spend the $100+ on registering and then have to back out.We were keeping our pregnancy plans a secret at the time and it turned out a good thing neither of us signed up! At one point, someone was joking about pulling a six-months-pregnant me over an obstacle - that would be fun...

I Brought the Awesome

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law both turned 30 this summer and decided to throw a big party to celebrate.
