Confession: I wear and own a lot of black. A lot of black. Of course I used to wear it a lot more often. It was my go-to color for a long time. I think at one point I owned like 20 black shirts. I know, it’s a problem. They weren’t just straight up black tee shirts though they were each their own. I’m trying to go towards the navy and gray sides now. So, I promise I’m wearing blue jeans and my blazer just so happens to be black. So there wasn’t much I could do there. Her scarf is knitted so my scarf is knitted though in all honesty I would wear this outfit outside but with a different scarf. Maybe a more cotton-y one.  I didn’t wear my glasses because A. My glasses are not as cute and B. The ones that were most similar have been lost.
What do you think? Would you wear your own rendition of this outfit?

Ooh baby it’s cold outside!
What is better than the warm gooey goodness of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie?!
I tried this recipe from Betty Crocker to see if I could get the most perfect cookie and they were so yummy!

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)

Jessica Alba side braids to bun. This picture is so old but so popular so I wanted to try it out myself. Of course, my hair is not long enough to be as extravagant as her messy bun but I work with what I got (:

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?”
Me: “What?”
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!”
AJ: “Baaaaaaabe!”

It seriously drove him crazy that I wouldn’t lick it. Why would I lick it? Really?
