Well it snowed as promised. With being sick and the cold weather, we spent a lot of time indoors and to lift the mood I made my delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Of all the cookies in the world, I make these the most. I think they might be my favorite. I’ll post the recipe later though I am still trying to master the most perfect chewy one.
Quote of the Day:
I’m cooking away in the kitchen when AJ walks into the doorway and stops.
AJ: “Hey babe are you brave?”
AJ: “Are you brave?”
I stop, look up and walk over in curiosity.
Me: “No I’m not brave and I don’t trust you because last time I said I trusted you, you poured water on me.”
AJ: “No I just want to know if you’re brave.”
That’s when I notice the battery in his hand.
Me: “I’m not going to lick that battery.”
AJ: “Babe, pleeeeease!”
This seriously happened and the entire time I was thinking “I can’t believe this is happening.”
Me: “I’m not stupid, I’m not going to lick that battery.”
AJ: “Come on it doesn’t really hurt.”
Me: “No way, I’m not stupid.”
AJ: “Just once. If you do it, then I will.”
Me: “Ha! Yeah okay, you lick it first then I will but I’m not really going to lick it.”
Then he does!
I started laughing so hard because then he hands it to me and says,
AJ: “Okay, now you lick it.”
Me: “Hahaha, I’m not going to lick it!”
It seriously drove him crazy that I wouldn’t lick it. Why would I lick it? Really?

I decided to try out a homemade face scrub that I heard about. It claims to help with acne scars and active acne. It’s really simple and all the ingredients are found in your kitchen.
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon honey
Combine all ingredients together and lightly scrub all over your face. Leave mixture on for 30 minutes.
If you don’t have honey, milk can be substituted though if your skin is sensitive you should only leave the mixture on for 20 minutes.
These were the directions and I followed them exactly. I made the exact amount and was able to place it all over my face [as shown]. Plus, it created a very nice strong, spicy smell.
Overall, I really enjoyed this concoction. It left my skin silky smooth and I could smell the sweet scent the rest of the night. Before I put on the scrub I could feel that I was getting a new bit of acne on my chin and without putting any other acne treatment on it, the next day my acne had completely surfaced. Not sure if it was because of this scrub but to me it seemed to help.
