Man, this week has flown by!

I'm not complaining though. I'm totally looking forward to this weekend for a lot of reasons. The weather is going to be nice on Saturday/Sunday for the first time in a long time. Lately, it's been beautiful during the week and nasty on the weekend, so this weekend, I'm heading to the beach.

With my SPF 75. Don't hate. I'm getting my freckle on y'all!

I've got some instagram photos for you this week and a KILLER recipe at the end of this post.

Listos? Ready? Vamos!

See what I mean about the rain? That's's only like a 20% chance. But anywho, the reason I took this is because I'm not ready for 80 degrees yet. It's still MARCH! If it's 80 something now...what is it gonna look like in July? Sigh...

My little man LOVES car rides. You know how they say that car rides can put a baby to sleep, well they do the same with my Hewitt.

Azaleas are these gorgeous bushy things that grow wild (and not so wild) in the area. They come in beautiful shades of pink, red, purple and salmon and are SO beautiful. Ugly things just become BEAUTIFUL when covered in colored flowers. Wilmington hosts the North Carolina Azalea Festival every year. I'm going this year and can't wait!

I found this most amazing and delicious recipe on the Life of Meg's blog this week and HAD to try it. She linked to the original post here. I cheated and used refrigerated cookie dough and it was still AMAZING. Seriously.

I bought the refrigerated cookie dough that was already separated into squares. Take a square and smoosh it in your hand until it's a flat disc. Follow the original recipe like normal.

If you have any leftover and they cool completely, I recommend popping those bad boys in the microwave for about 10 seconds before you eat them because, in my opinion, they are the best warm.

Y'all should try that recipe. That will be a GREAT way to kick off the weekend! Speaking of weekend, I need to get started with mine soon, so I'll see y'all back here on Sunday.

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Linking up with Jeannett for InstaFriday!


  1. July and August are going to be brutal :( At least you'll get some ocean breeze.
    Car rides totally put babies to sleep. My daughter LOVES Hewitt, he's her favorite dog :)
    It's weird to imagine not knowing what an azalea is. I grew up with them everywhere and I even have some right outside my front door.
    Those cookies look yummy. I bet that would work with other cookies doughs, like peanut butter or sugar cookie.

    1. Awww, Hewitt has a fan!! He'll be so excited to hear that! ;)

      I agree on the azalea thing. I've always been around them, but a friend of mine that just moved to the area wasn't familiar. Say WHAT??!

  2. Hi April! Hopping over from Insta-Friday! That dessert looks so good. And I haven't eaten breakfast yet so i would like to order one please! I see you are a fashion gal. Well, you might just like my Stylin' Saturday posts. Or maybe not.
