Cookie Recipe

This is that perfect cookie recipe you look for, but never find. Well now, finally, me and myself, have found it! Its so good that the next day it tastes just as good. A tip for anyone to always make better cookies it to NEVER USE BUTTER trust me I learned that the hard way!

1/2 cup of oil
1 tsp. of vanilla
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening (margarine)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tarter
2-3 cups of chocolate chips
1/2 cups of Heath of Toffee

Mix, oil shortening, vanilla and sugars, add egg, flour, soda, salt, and cream of tartar, mix well. add LOTS of chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoon on cookie sheet and bake in 350 degree oven for 8 min.


a very busy week

This is a extremely funny picture that Leah took of Hannah, Mom, Me, Sophia, and Lindsay. We were just about to eat dinner at a Mexican restaurant when Leah decided to take some pictures. Leah told us "All make a really cheesy smile." We all did what she said, of course, and this is how our picture turned out..

Hysterical huh? I laugh every time! These are some
more pictures of me that Leah took in the park.

This is a brick wall in Oconomowoc!

This is me on a bridge that's VERY close to the water!

This is the same bridge same time. Funny what how your camera
changes the color so much when ever you take it from a different view.

We've had a lot of flooding around here so
this bench was surrounded by water. Can you tell?
This picture, I think, is my favorite.

I like this one too. The fence gives an interesting
look to the picture! A guy was fishing for fish (Well, Duh) in
that river. But not with worms, or Minos, but...CORN!
Is that not the weirdest thing you have ever heard?

This was a picture taken at the Milwaukee Public Museum.
I am standing in front of a stain glass door if you can't tell.

And last but not least a great big lake!
                                                  This one is probably my second favorite!

My Dad had a bunch of stuff that we get to do every summer for his work. His office actually rents the zoo so  we get free everything for a night! You know all those food stands? All that stuff is free! We also got to go to a Keith Urban concert!!!!!! I can't believe I actually got to see him! He was really good, of course, and we all enjoyed ourselves a lot. The morning we got to go to the zoo for free we also ran a 5K. I'm so proud of myself for not breaking down in the middle of it! On the car ride to the zoo my legs started to kill! Hope everyone had just as good of a weekend as I did. God Bless!

Happiness Is

For some reason I can't get the button up...but anyways its time for "Happiness Is"! I've never done this before so sorry if I'm doing something wrong.

Here are the instructions: Write a post with two things (or more than two things) that made you happy this week. For more information please go to Carlotta's Blog. Have a great day! least two things that made me happy this week?!?! I've got it....

In this case...the Art Museum! I just love this glass structure!
it reminds me some what of my crazy drumming life!

A perfect example of God's wonderfully amazing creation!
                                      This picture was taken at Glacier National Park.

Our Kitten

We are currently trying to adopt a baby kitten we are trying to figure out names for him but we can't agree on just one! I will show you a picture of him and you can comment and tell me which name you think is the best! we are going with names from people of the bible....Moses, Daniel, Smokey, Timothy, and any other candy names if you can think of some! Oh yeah, before you get to excited I have to tell you that we might not actually get this kitten we are still trying to adjust him to our other cat....Zeke. we thought we might need another cat because Zeke is getting old and kind of sick! He's not being his regular self! well here is a Adorable Picture of the Kitten.......

He has the biggest eyes you could ever imagine on a cat!
But isn't he the sweetest thing? Now tell me does he not
look like a Smokey to you?

The picture at the end is  with me and my photographer, my sis Leah! If some of you were wondering why I haven't posted anything in so long, its because I've been on vacation... Big Sky Montana!
