Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

I have a sweet tooth, and by sweet tooth I mean all of my teeth are literally made of sugar.  Not Splenda.  Not Truvia.  SUGAR SUGAR SUGAR!

When I ran across this blog on Pinterest, I knew I had to make these!

These are the easiest things to make in the world, and only require 2 ingredients!

1. A tub of Nestle' Toll House cookie dough
2. Hot fudge sundae topping

See?!  TWO ingredients!

First, I lined a cupcake tin with fluted papers*, and took my handy dough scooper thingy to make sure I had the same amount for each one.  I flattened the cookie dough and put it in the bottom of the cupcake liner, making sure the dough went up the sides.

Once you have them all lined with cookie dough, put about a table spoon of the fudge topping, take your handy dough scooper thingy to measure out the cookie dough, flatten it, and lay it on top of the fudge.

Seriously.  THAT EASY!

Bake on 325 for 10-15 minutes, depending on how ooey gooey you want them!

*The blog says to just spray the cupcake tin with Pam (I suggest Baking Pam because it smells SO GOOD), but I found it a bit hard to get the cookies out.

Kate Spade Knockoff

I LOVE Kate Spade.  Her line is timeless, classy, chic...perfect, so when I found this tutorial on how to turn a striped long sleeved shirt into a Kate Spade tank top, I was in HEAVEN! I've had this one black and white striped long sleeved t-shirt sitting in my closet for ages.  It's too big, stretched out a bit too much, and it looks like a prison uniform.  I NEEDED this tutorial!

Here is my "prison chic" t-shirt:

And here is my lovely Kate Spade Knockoff!

So much better, don't you agree?!

Our Big News

If you came over to my severely under-updated blog to see when baby number two is due, then the joke is on you! HA!  But seriously, no baby!

In other news, in less than three weeks, Jarrod, Elliot, and I will be making our trek back across the Louisiana/Texas state line, where we will once again, reside in our beloved city of Houston!

Long story short, our house became available, and Jarrod's company has been understanding and gracious enough to let him return back home.

Soo...if you are in Louisiana (or are willing to travel to New Iberia) and know of someone who needs a (basically) brand new refrigerator, couch, or love seat, let me know.  These are the three things we don't want to have to bring back.

That is all for now.  I'll keep you updated on any other news we may have!
