Happiness Is...

... a full cookie jar. Of these, made with this. Only I didn't make them jumbo - just regular cookie size, so it is perfectly acceptable to eat 3 or 4 or 5 in a day... right? And I must say: organic butter tastes SO much better than the regular stuff. I have turned into a complete cookie snob. I actually threw out half a box of store-made "bakery" cookies that were, honestly, terrible. My 2012 goal: to become a homemade-snob about more of the things we eat everyday. Secondary goal: find a better word than "snob" to describe what I'm going for here... any thoughts?

Anyway, where was I?

Happiness is... a little bag for Amy's dance shoes (!). Whipped up in less than 45 minutes this afternoon by yours truly. With fabric and ribbon already on-hand. And I performed the how-to-sew-a-lined-bag mental cartwheel without having to look at a pattern. Go me.

Happiness is pulling off both these things on back-to-back days. I might just be on a roll!


  1. That cookie recipe is literally the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe there is. I LOVE it. Someday I'll be able to make cookies again... ;)

    And I didn't comment on the last post, but Amy looks so cute in her dance class! Big girl! Proud of you both!!

    1. Thanks, Melissa - I started making that recipe after you mentioned it!

    2. Well, I'm glad that I could introduce even that much happiness into your world. :)

      Also, perhaps "connoisseur" is a slightly better word than snob?
