The Perfect Storm

With the weather changing so much around here and all the stress that Huff the Hubs and I have been under (moving, house stuff, just life in general) I’ve been nervous that he would get a migraine. He knows his triggers: chocolate, allergies, and stress, so he tries to avoid/cope as best he can.


Yesterday, it was windy, the allergens were off the charts, and he was given the responsibility of cooking dinner and picking up the baby (as I would be late). It was THE PERFECT STORM.


Sure enough, when I got home–in a great mood and hopeful for a spaghetti dinner to await me–I walked in to a pitch black house, a crying baby, and a husband crawling from the nursery to the couch.


Needless to say, there was a lot of vomit, a lot of ibuprofen, and zero sleep. Which is why, today’s post is half-hearted. Trust me, tomorrow’s will be better! (As will Huff the Hubs…hopefully.)


Try It Tuesday

Hello everyone!

Sorry there was no post yesterday. Between twisting my ankle going down the stairs before work, seeing the tragedy in Boston, and coming home to a migraine-suffering husband, I was in no mood to blog.

However, today’s “Try It” is absolutely what the doctor ordered. And when I say doctor, I mean me!

There’s a yummy treat floating around the Pinterest-sphere and I’ve been wanting to taste it. So, me, Mom, and BB tried it out!

Here’s what you need:

~cookie dough

~brownie mix


~muffin tin

~an oven

~salivary glands

No pictured: salivary glands.

First step: spray a little Pam in the muffin tin and press the cookie dough in the tin:

You can always just eat the raw dough. Unless you're pregnant. Womp, womp.

Next, drop Oreos in the tin:

Dad almost ate all the Oreos. Tricksy Hobbit.

Then, pour in the brownie batter:

Nom, nom, nom.

Nom, nom, nom.


Put the tin in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Then, you’ll have this:

I'm not going to lie. I ate it in two bites.

Guys. This “Try It” was a total success. I’m talking unicorns and rainbows with dancing ponies success! The tastiest thing I’ve tried since starting this blog!
