Three Kinds of Oatmeal Cookies

When snow storm Nemo had us house-bound over the weekend, we absolutely had to bake cookies.  We decided to make a full batch of oatmeal cookies 3 ways: traditional oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip oatmeal, and my favorite cranberry white chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.

Start with your favorite Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe.

Divide the batter into 3 bowls and add about 1/3 to 1/2 C of topping into each. *If you’re doing cranberry and white chocolate chip, add 1/4 C each of those.
Mix (or pretend mix as the case is here).
Scoop.  Bake.
Cool (if you can wait…).
Enjoy!

Couple Things…

Since we’ll be stuck inside all weekend with this crazy “epic” snowstorm coming our way, we decided to head out last night to run errands and grab dinner.  We tried Bobby’s Burger Palace – delicious!  And if you like onion rings, they are out of this world.  We’ll be back!

Have a great weekend, here are some fun links:

I gave you a Valentine’s outfit idea yesterday, here are a few more from Anthropologie

New collaboration between L.A.M.B. and Burton – I will be SO fashionable on the slopes next season!

Can you imagine walking into this Paris Time Capsule Apartment after it’s been locked for 70 years? Check out the Mickey Mouse in the second image.

I was searching Amazon for bibs for our baby the other day and came across this…for those that know how often I stain my clothes, I may just get one…

What to Wear – Valentine’s Day Date

With Valentine’s Day only one week from today, I thought I’d put together a festive outfit for your night out (or in!) with your love.

1. Tie-front shirt (sold out, similar here); 2. Heart pin from Ban.do; 3. Dior red nail polish to coordinate with your top; 4. Lip clutch from Aldo; 5. Cupid’s arrow Juicy Couture bracelet; 6. Skirt from Topshop at Nordstrom; 7. “I Finally Found You” Valentine’s Day card from Anthropologie; 8. Chocolate roses for your love; and 9. Seychelles heals.

Cream Cheese Brownies

We had a craving for brownies the other day and decided to use our go-to-from-scratch brownie recipe but add a delicious cream cheese topping to make them even more decadent.  Must be eaten with a glass of milk.

We used this recipe for the cream cheese topping that we’ve used before.

Cream cheese.
Mix cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla.
Dollop onto brownie batter in baking dish.
Use a butter knife to swirl the cream cheese into the brownie batter.

Bake, cool, etc… enjoy!

Monday Outfit

I got this fabulous new coat from Zara and I am wearing it today even though it’s not quite warm enough.  I love the army green front and cream sleeves that are actually a textured fabric, the contrast make it such an interesting jacket.  I’m wearing it with my Urban Outfitters skinny leg jeans, brown boots, cute gray sweater, red nails, and a simple necklace – similar to the one below.  Have a great week!

Couple Things…

Our poor little munchkin has been sick all week so we’re looking forward to the weekend to rest up and have a little fun!  Enjoy the Superbowl Sunday night, since the Pats aren’t in it this year, I am focusing more on the snacks and not the game.

Have a great weekend, here are some fun links for you:

Do you have Vine yet (see my video above)?

Here’s the main difference b/w Instagram and Vine, ha!

This flip book version of Gangnam Style is ridiculous, who has the time?

Lance does Radiohead.

I love all of these ideas from Martha for different pizza toppings!  We’re thinking pizza for the Superbowl this year.
