Good Monday morning! Hope everyone had a nice weekend. One pilates exam down, one more to go Tuesday afternoon! Wish me luck.

I’ve never read the Twilight books, but talked my hubby into taking me to see the movie Saturday night (thanks for babysitting Reed!). I did things backwards with seeing the movie first, but enjoyed it more than I thought I would. People in our theater were hilarious. As soon as Edward was on screen the cat calls were all over the place. I was cracking up at the crazy fans. Once I get to CA I’ll have to dive into the series. I feel like I’m the last one out there who hasn’t read them. What did you all think of the movie who read the books first? I’ve heard some mixed reviews.

Now onto the cookies! I’ve had this fabulous little cookie on file for a while now just waiting to post it. Talk about a great combination. I hope you all can find these cherry chips. I got mine at the Super Walmart by my house, (no more Super Walmart for me once I get to CA, what will I do?!) I think these chips come out around the holidays, but do check for them, you’ll love this recipe. These would be great on those holiday plates too (more coming soon). Buttery and just slightly crisp around the edges, Enjoy!
