Happy Monday Friends! How was your weekend? I have a couple of random things to share with you today.
1. Big Guy. I don't know if you know this or not, but I am married to a tall man. Rondell is 6'5"! When I first met him one of my reactions was "wow, he's tall!" I love that he's easy to find in a crowd :) I have gotten used to his height over the years, but there are times when I am reminded that he is tall.
One thing that has us tickled lately is a little girl who attends the same daycare as Caleb. Whenever Rondell walks in she says "Big Guy!"
I finally got to see her this weekend at Caleb's Christmas performance and heard her say "Big Guy..it's Big Guy!" with such excitement. It was adorable :)
My "Big Guy"
Yesterday I went to my friend Lyndsey's 5th Annual Cookie Exchange. I forgot my camera (again), but you can go here to see where I posted about the 2nd year & the picture above is from the 3rd year (I made snickerdoodles that year). This year she and her mom asked me to sell a few cards and I was happy to do just that.
2b. My cookies. I try to make a different cookie each year & this year I made a lemon cookie. You can find the recipe here. I saw it first on Paige's blog a few months ago and knew right away that I wanted to make them because I love lemon. I did not ice them though...but they were still good. Here they are in all their glory:
2c. The greatest discovery EVER! So, see what my cookies are sitting on...that, my friends, is parchment paper. This recipe called for using parchment paper, which I have never used before. It is now my new best friend and I do not know where is has been all my life. The cookies came off so easily and I didn't have to wash pans between each batch. I.am.in.love :)
3. I think that's all I've got! Join in on the fun over at Carissa's blog.
