Wow- is it almost May??!

Wow. I can't believe I haven't posted since February!!

I should be writing a quick update, but instead I am working on a paper for graduate school. Ugh. Hence, my lack of posts! I am also planning a baby shower for my beautiful friend Abby. I will be posting some super cute baby shower ideas!

Thanks for sticking with me! I promise I am still alive!

My fur babes, before and after

While taking a quick break from doing homework this weekend, I came across this cute website: 22 Adorable Before and After Pictures of Animals. Let me tell you, it's freaking adorable. It inspired me to do the same thing with my animals. 
Can you tell how productive I am being with homework?
Abbey, 10 years apart

Will, 8 years apart

Butterscotch aka "Dude", 3 years apart

Aren't my fur babes cute? This little project also made me feel super old. Oui. Okay, back to homework.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies

Since Valentines Day is tomorrow, I figured I would post a yummy cookie recipe!

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups m&ms

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla until well blended.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa, flour, soda & salt.  Mix into the creamed mixture until just blended.  Stir in the chocolate chips and m&ms.
Drop onto parchment-lined baking sheets and bake for 11-13 minutes until just set.  Cool completely on a cooling rack. Enjoy!!
