Happy Valentine’s Day Peeps!  I hope you are feeling the love today ♥

Bailey baked ANOTHER batch of cookies over the weekend.  Valentine Monster Cookies.  Everyone loves an easy cookie recipe, right?  Well here is a good one……

This recipe is another semi-homemade, which is becoming a staple in our house…lol.  Throw in a couple of bags of mix, add butter and festive candy….viola!  Holiday cookies in a snap!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 17.5 oz bag Betty Crocker Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 17.5 oz bag Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix
1 stick butter, room temperature
2 eggs
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water
1 12.6 oz bag Holiday M&M’s
Here’s what you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
Add all ingredients except M&M’s to mixer.  Mix very slow at fist (it will make a mess)
Once ingredients are fully combined, stir in M&M’s.
Using a cookie scoop, place 1 tablespoon of dough onto baking sheet.  Place cookie dough 2-inches apart.
Bake 8 minutes.
 

Enjoy with your Valentine ♥

The first batch didn’t turn out quite right, but the second time around she nailed it.  Sometimes I have to sneak a peek at Miss Bailey’s measurements.  But shhhh, don’t tell her I told you that!!

 

 

One of my favorite things about being a Mom is making Holiday’s super special!  I just live for the excitement in my daughters eyes when she wakes up in the morning.  She never knows what kind of crazy shit I’ve got up my sleeve 🙂  10 years later and she jumps up and down when she sets her eyes on the candy + goodies!

Today was no different…….

Valentines’s day breakfast for my girl this morning.  She LOOOVVVEEESSS yogurt + granola for breakfast, so that was easy.  Then I attempted the heart-shaped cinnamon rolls that we’ve all seen over and over again on pinterest.  Let’s just say pinterest makes that shit look a hell of a lot easier than it really is.  This was the best out of four…lol.  Bay said it tasted great, so that’s all that matters 🙂

Some goodies for my Valentine!

J.Crew Sweatshirt – GIRLS’ TULLE-HEM SWEATSHIRT – super cute and it comes in pink + black too!  If only it came in my size too!  #twinning

Lush – Cupid Bath Bomb – Bay loves her baths 🙂

Face Mask – Freeman Feeling Beautiful Cucumber Peel Off Clarifying Mask – these are fun peel off masks that are easy on the wallet!

Heart bras – Hanes Girls’ 2-Pack Bra – haha, I have no explanation, except they are cute and have become necessary.

 

 

 

Bailey spoiled me too.  She spent her very own money to buy me an essential oil set.  Can you believe that?  How sweet is my girl?!?!  I may have mentioned it once and she remembered.  She even got the diffuser too.

Bay is going to set it all up for me when we get home tonight.  Super excited ♥
