Chocolate Chip Cookies

My favorite cookies are Chocolate Chip Cookies. Nothing can beat it. What can I say? I'm a simple girl!

For, like, the first 2yrs of our marriage I only made these cookies. They are very, very good. But I really prefer flat and chewy over anything else. It took me a really long time to find my perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. But I've found it and I don't use anything else now!! These don't last for very long when I make them, too!

Here you go! Enjoy!

2 1/4 c. flour (I use half whole wheat flour and half white.. but I usually end up using more wheat though. I love what it does to the texture to the cookie! Healthier, too!)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
1c. (2sticks) butter, softened (I always use salted for these cookies.. just my preference!)
3/4 c. white sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
2c. milk chocolate chocolate morsels. (I've used semi-sweet and we like milk choc. better)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla in mixer.
Add eggs 1 at a time. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels.
Drop by tablespoon-fuls on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 9-11mins (mine our done right at 9mins).
Cool a minute or two then transfer to wire racks.

Okay, I know I said wedding pictures were up next, but we went to the beach yesterday afternoon and watched the sun set. It was absolutely gorgeous and I just had to come and show you guys the pictures! =)

I will definitely miss our 5 minute drive to the beach!!!!

a big blur

That's what life is like for me right now! My days just seem to blend together. I seriously cannot believe it's already November.

Here's a little glimpse of our schedule right now.

Sundays- Church all day. Services are 945am, 11am, and 6pm. A nap is always needed in the afternoons.
Monday through Thursday - watching my neighbor/friend's two boys, 12-4pm
Monday night - I have my Faith Bible Institute class (I recommend this class to every one who wants to learn more about the Lord and the Bible.. it's excellent!!) to go to, 630-915pm
Wednesday night - Hubby has school, the kids and I have church
Friday night - My husband and I volunteer at our church for the Reformers Unanimous program.

Every Saturday it seems like something is going on. Doing things/helping at church, a wedding, a car show, shopping, something!

Add in housework, homework, running errands, grocery shopping, having a yard sale and dr. appointments (we seem to have a lot of those right now) you can see why I have neglected my blog!!

I'm not complaining at all, I am enjoying life! I'm sure once we move and get settled next year our life will slow down and probably be boring! hehe.

My next post is going to be overloaded with pictures! We went to a wedding not too long ago and I've got some cute photos to share!

Until then, sayonara!
