weekend recap & my go to dessert.

Yay for Mondays. Not really. But why not attempt to start the week with a positive attitude. 
We had a fabulous weekend, filled with:

-Fun date night at Satchel's Pizza with friends... the best Pizza and I am a total pizza snob. 

-One of Dave's climbing buddies came to town with his girlfriend for the day. We took them to the Gainesville Rock gym... they are from Utah so they weren't impressed but fun to see them!

-We found Dave a golf bag for 10 bucks at Goodwill- score! 

- I convinced Dave to get a new pair of jeans, finally! (His old ones had a big hole in the crotch, normal?) And I may or may not have gotten a polka dot chambray shirt...

-Loved watching the General Relief Society Broadcast. The messages were much needed. 

-Late night ice cream run and movie in bed. 

-Sang songs during church with all the primary kids to practice for the program. 

-Ate dinner with friends and enjoyed the traditional Sunday night dessert and games.

-Skyped with both our parents- we kind of really miss them a LOT.

Lastly, I thought I would share my recent go to dessert 
for when people ask me to bring a dish somewhere. 
Thanks to my sister. 

Cookie Brownies

For the brownies I make them homemade
but you can use a box or find a homemade recipe that looks good to you. 
I always have cookie dough in my freezer from making cookies recently.
Really, you can use any homemade cookie dough recipe. 
You pour the already made brownie mix into the pan,
add clumps of cookie dough throughout. 
Bake @350 for about 35-40 minutes. 
It is delicious and everyone always loves it.
