I have had several post that I wanted to do, but when I started putting the pictures on the screen, they all had one thing in common- Baby! Maybe it's because he is with me most of the day, or maybe it's because he cracks me up, or maybe it's because he is my baby!
I will come up with a post that does not include him- it's going to be hard, but I think I can!

But don't be fooled- baby did too- even if he kept saying "I don't want to be kissy face anymore!"It was just a little hard to understand him while he was laughing so hard.

These are the ingredients- pretty simple right?
Place your oven rack in the center of your oven. Preheat to 250
Spoon out the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet- I did not have any parchment, but I am ok with that. You should be able to get 12 large cookies
Bake for 25-30 minutes- do not burn them- do not open the door!!!!! Now here is the hard part
About 20 minutes into the baking, your kitchen will smell out of this world, but you can't open the oven door. When the buzzer goes off, you can't open the door. You turn the oven off and set the timer for 2 hours, yes, you have to smell the wonderful smell, for another 2 hours, coming from an oven that is off and YOU CAN NOT OPEN THE DOOR. The first time I made them I thought it would not be a big deal, I had laundry to do and my kitchen needed a good cleaning, but that smell- oooo that smell it beckoned me to open the door... but I did not.Make these today- you will find love in a cookie! ( leave the coffee out if you must and they are still great)
Homemade Salsa! It is FINE!!! This post has already been too long and the recipe came from a friend, so I will have to get her permission to share it! Just know it is the best salsa you will ever have!
Have a great weekend!

The night of the Auburn/Alabama game I was at her house with a group of people who started talking about running a 5K. HA! The next day, she was at my house and we were printing out a 5K for dummies running plan. She talked me into it.
I really wanted to like it-really! we started "training", we ran exactly the way the plan said to, but for some reason, I wasn't loving to run. I have always heard that once you start running you will love it- anyone who says that is lying! It got cold during our "training" and my running partner was not a softy- she would not stop, I think she almost killed me! My lungs would burn, I mean like- on fire burn- wonder if that bout of bacterial pneumonia I had the year before had anything to do with that- oh well. My lungs burned,my appetite increased, my knees hurt and I swear I cracked my hip- I know this because I watched The Biggest Loser, and the exact same thing happened to one of the contestants that season. Anyway- I was not loving to run. It did give me some relief to know that the 5K was at the beach, in March- so that meant warmer weather.
The big 5K weekend was upon us. We had finished the "training" and we were ready. I was secretly hoping that my running partner would say- let's skip it- she did not. We got to the beach- met a great group of girls, laughed a lot, signed in for the 5K in the rain- not a good sign! The big run was on Sunday- it was a record cold day- like it started off in the teens- and add that breeze off the gulf and you have yourself a miserable run! I called my family to see what they were doing-they were playing in the snow- yeah, it was cold.
This blog has been long enough, I won't go through all the thoughts that went through my head as I picked up my legs made of concrete to carry them across that finish line (yes, I did finish). Just know this- I will not be doing another 5K. I will go down to the beach to laugh- hard with friends, but not to do a 5K!
Now that I look at this picture, all those girls have i-pods, maybe that hurt my time...ha, ha,ha!
