It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Hello fellow bloggers! Please forgive my absence as of lately! I wish I had some great excuse, but this December we've been blowing and going like normal!

The first week in December we celebrated our Life Group Christmas party at Wes and Amanda's house! Each couple brought an appetizer and a $20 gift. Bryan made stuffed jalapenos and they were a huge hit! Seriously, they were all gone in about 5 minutes! We ended up receiving a Starbucks gift card (yum!) and had a great time!

Sunday we drove down to Houston to be there for Miss Lexi White's birth and drove back that Monday!

Weekend 2, Bryan and I had a date night on Friday night, then had a busy day on Saturday! Saturday morning we drove to the Christmas tree farm and picked out our Christmas tree!


We took it home, decorated it, then headed over to our friend's Todd and Kara's, and spent Saturday night with them. They have 2 precious little boys, so I always get my baby fix while I'm there! ;)

Week 3 of December was busy with last minute Christmas shopping, Colby came to visit for a few days and he and Bryan had some good man time! We survived the last day of school and class parties, then went to Cheddar's on Friday night to celebrate with Jacque and Jason!

That Saturday night we had a steak night with the guys in our LG and the girls had a cookie exchange! We all had a blast! Sunday we went to church, and the rest of the day Bryan and I spent being lazy bums! We spent most of the day with Bryan watching t.v and me reading. Ahhhhhh! Sunday and Monday I finished wrapping all of the Christmas presents, then we mailed all of our Christmas cards and Christmas gifts to my family. That night we went over to Todd and Kara's house and had a blast hanging out with them again! Bryan and I came back that night and had our family Christmas!

 Love the expression on his face! Someone's excited about JD!
 Love this one too!

Yay for me! We had a great time this December, and even though it's been a whirlwind, we've been so blessed and made wonderful memories!

Wanted: the perfect sugar cookie recipe

Well, as we all know, it's that time of year for one of my favorite activities....baking Christmas sugar cookies! I love getting out all of my super cute cookie cutters, all of the sprinkles, and making that yummy icing! There's only one problem...I can't find a good recipe that I like! So, I'm reaching out to all my blogger friends to get your opinion! Here is the criteria for what I'm looking for. Oh and if your recipe doesn't fit the bill, hit the road jack! Haha..just kidding!

My perfect sugar cookie must be:

  • just the right size, not too thin, but not too thick
  • must taste delicious and melt in my mouth
  • must be CHEWY or SOFT!!! I can't stand burned crisp cookies!
And that's about it. So simple, or so I thought! I am willing to try any recipe if it gives me cookies like that! I'll spend hours making it homemade, or am even willing to try the sugar cookie mix from the bag! Has anyone ever tried that? Hopefully this is what my cookies will look like when I'm done!

See how they look all fresh and soft and that buttercream icing looks delish! This is what I want people! Ok, on your mark, get set, COMMENT!!! :)

P.S. If you would also like to give me your recipe for yummy buttercream icing, I'll take that too! ;)

The Beginning of a New Chapter...

Tomorrow I will experience something brand new! My best friend is having her first baby and I will officially become an "honorary aunt" to Miss Alexis Joy White! This is so surreal to me...

I can remember 12 years ago in Ms. Kaufman's biology class when I became partners with a girl named Kyrbie Green. We both became partners with each other for our bug project because we didn't want to be partners with this other scary girl! Little did we know, that one project would result in us becoming best friends! We've gone through freshman band, football games, super fans, cheerleading, boys and lack of, slumber parties, sweet 16's, Gracie's birth, road trip to Brownwood, college, our "serious" boyfriends,  Kyrbie's engagement and wedding, college graduations, first jobs, my engagement and wedding, and now Kyrbie's going to become a mama tomorrow!

I am SO excited to start this new chapter of mine and Kyrbie's relationship! The past 12 years have been so wonderful and I know the future years will bring even more amazing memories! I had the pleasure of being with Kyrbie when her baby sister Gracie was born, and now I'll have the pleasure to be there when her child is born! I just think that's amazing and there is no other place I'd rather be!

Kyrbie Alexis Green White,

Your friendship is so precious to me and I can't thank you enough for being such a best friend! I know that you are going to be such an amazing mother to Lexi! I can't wait until I can join you in this journey of motherhood! Love you more than you know!

Chelsey Sue Snodgrass Moss

and in honor of this occasion, here are some blasts from the past! ;)
