Audrey Kathryn is 1

It's been a while! My sweet baby girl is one. I've had the best time being a mommy of a girl. My family is complete now.

For the party I decided to have a breakfast at Audrey's. Enjoy the pics!

My Chocolate Chip Recipe

Chocolate chip cookies don't last long in this house, so I make them quite a bit. They are my boys and big guy's favorite cookie. I have made just about every kind of chocolate chip cookie recipe out there. I believe I have now perfected it.

 

Ingredients

3/4 cup of sugar

1 cup of light brown sugar

2 sticks of butter softened

2 eggs room temperature

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

3 cups of flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup of chocolate chips

Mix flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl with a fork. Set it aside. In your mixer mix butter with the sugars and vanilla. Mix until blended then add one egg at a time. Once blended add flour mixture a little at a time. Last add in the chocolate chips. Now it is time to eat that dough.....I know, I know you are not suppose to. But I do!

 

Bake at 375 degrees for about 7 minutes. Just keep checking on those bad boys. I like mine soft so 7 minutes is perfect for me.

 

 

Boys approve!

My 2014 Makeup Favorites

I love playing with makeup and wearing makeup. My makeup collection has really grown. Here are my favorites of 2014

These lipsticks are so smooth and minty. By far my favorite!

 

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Lace Illuminater in Ballerina. This is so pretty and it gives such a nice highlight on your face.

 

Naked Basics Palette by Urban Decay is my go to eyeshadow. I use this about 7 days a week.

 

I've talked about this before but I love this stuff. It is called Drink Up by Orgins. I rub this stuff on my face twice a week and sleep in it. The next morning my face is so soft.

 

Taylor by Taylor Swift smells so amazing and it really stays on all day.

 

I use this foundation just about everyday. It is amazing. Nice coverage and it lasts all day. I have tried a lot of foundations and this by far is my favorite.

 

Nars Armour blush is so pretty on the skin

 

Nars Laguna bronzer is so pretty and doesn't make my face look muddy

Those are my favorite products for 2014. I can't wait to try new stuff!

The Words My Momma Never Heard

My kitchen rug by the sink at times would be soaked. I always believed it was my son spilling water. The hubby took out a drawer and saw mold under it. I of course freaked out and called my engineer dad. Dad came to the rescue and figured out it was my dishwasher leaking and it couldn't be fixed. You see my dad has fixed my mom's dishwasher everytime it broke. They had the same dishwasher for over 20 years. They actually just got a new fancy one but not because the old one was broke. My mom has sometimes wished my dad would say "I can not fix it we need a new one". That never happened. When dad was checking out my dishwasher I was just waiting for him to say he would be able to fix it. I heard those words my mom never heard.....you need a new one. The dishwasher was old and really couldn't be fixed.

My new dishwasher is bliss. Who knew how much a new dishwasher would make me happy. I actually like unloading and loading it. Holy cow it makes my kitchen look a lot better. We may be paying it off for years to come but I am in love. Now, I am dying for a new fridge. Anyone want to buy me one?

It's the little things like a new dishwasher that makes me happy!

A New Shelf

The hubby made me a shelf in our closet with jewelery hooks. It took him about 30 minutes to do this project and I couldn't be happier. I love how my jewelry is on display. I still want to get a white rug and a blingy light fixture. We have to wait for another couple of paychecks.
