I love cookies.
you already know that......but as much as I love them,
I also love fitting into my swimsuit come warmer weather (really liking this one).
But sometimes, I just need a cookie.
So I whipped up these....
....I wouldn't quite call them cookies.
Are they the best cookie you've ever had? I sure hope not!
But do they stand in place of a cookie, when you really want one, but maybe shoudn't have one (10:00 at night.)
This was the most guiltless cookie I have ever sunk my teeth in to.
A great afternoon snack for the kids too (they are surprisingly filling!)

We have LOVED the sunshine this week!! We cannot get enough!! I have fully enjoyed neglecting my housework, just so we could spend our days outside. Running, jumping, and rolling down hills!
We love to create. Every day.
I looooooove the photography in the spring Toast Catalogue.
Really really liking these guys right now. This artist is new to me, and I'm so happy to have found them (thanks hays:)
