My Version of Monster Cookies

This is by far my favorite cookie of all time. This cookie has everything hence the name Monster Cookie. The only things I have changed from Paula Dean's original recipe are the add ins (choc chips, ect...) You can take this recipe and make it your own. Use your imagination like my friend Luxuary Living Frugal Style did! She got her inspiration when she saw the recipe online looking it up for me and then remembered all the Halloween candy!!! Check out her site for great deals and look for her version of Monster Cookies.

I am off to watch Toy Story 3 with my girls and eat some pizza! And why blogger is making my font look like this is beyond me!!! It took me 3 tries to get it to link up to my friend's blog!!! UGGG! Have a great night everyone!

nuff said :)

It has been a while since I have done a real post! WOW! We have just been so super busy. Today is a little more laid back thank the Lord! Ted is gone until next Wednesday so it is just me and the girls. I got to take them to Sesame Place on Saturday and they had a blast. LOVE Here's to the Heroes! Thank you for letting us go free once a year! AWESOME! This week end I get to go see my bestie Luxury Living Frugal Style!! Yahoo!!!! My and another bestie are taking the 2 hour road trip to the Poconos to see her. So excited.

As some of you already know, we do not participate in Halloween activities. It is a personal conviction so instead we take the girls and do something else fun. I took the girls to Sesame the day before and on Sunday since my husband's plane was delayed (gotta love military air) I took the girls all by myself to Friendlys for dinner and ice cream. They had a blast!! I let Bella feed it to herself and I got to say, I think she did better than my 3  year old.

As mentioned earlier, Ted is gone until next Wednesday. He went to TN for a wedding he is in. I am not thrilled about him going at all! It is a personal problem I have discussed a few weeks ago. I am doing good though. On the bright side his sister and her beautiful family and his dad are going to be there as well. And he will get to see my parents and go to our home church. So at least some good will come out of this trip. I just wish in a way I could have gone so my girls would have gotten to see everyone. My dad is after me to bring the girls down to see Papaw and Nanny! My lovely parents will be making the move to Milton, FL the first of the year. My dad is taking a church there. Please pray for that transition for them and my 2 brothers. They are leaving behind my 2 sisters so pray for them as well. Come spring we will be making the LONG trip to FL to see them and of course be moving our membership to the church dad will be pastoring. I look forward to it.

THANK YOU LORD for allowing the Republicans to take back the House!! Senate would have been nice too and the Oval Office in 2012 would be even better :)

I am off for now. I hope everyone has a blessed day! Check my Word-Filled Wednesday post for my verse of the day. Also for all of my military friends, check out my post here about a free meal for your military man/woman at Applebees on the 11th! Check out my current ecomom giveaway here! Please enter. There are very low entries and this is my first one! Have a blessed day everyone!!!

Oh and look for a recipe I tried to be posted tomorrow long with pics of course! Yummy monster cookies!!! It is an all in one cookie! SO GOOD!!!
