Throwback Thursday--I'll Think of a Reason Later!

Okay, I'm admitting it.  I hate perfect people.  Perfect, skinny people who can cook meals for their families like a chef, decorate their home like Martha Stewart, photograph well, make motherhood look effortless, never have a bad day, always look fashionable, and who always finds time to do charity work.  Perhaps that is why I love Lee Ann Womack's song "I'll Think of a Reason Later" so much. 

Believe it or not, this song came out in 1998.  I can't believe it has been that long ago already!  Even though the woman in the song is talking about her ex-boyfriend's new fiance in the song, I can perfectly picture all the women I love to hate when I hear this song.  You know who I'm talking about...and I know I'm not alone in my "I'll think of a reason later" way of thinking.  So crank it up and get your dart board ready!

Happy Valentine's Day!

This year, I decided to skip the fanfare and do something very simple for my loved ones...bake.  You know how the story goes, "the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach."  Since I have nothing but boys around here, I figured I couldn't go wrong! 

I put an easy spin on the traditional blossom cookie by placing milk chocolate hearts in the center of the cookie instead of a Hershey's kiss.  It makes it even more special when you are allowed to eat one for breakfast!

I used this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.  It is my go-to cookbook!
