It was a sports party

My son turns 8 next week but, we celebrated his birthday with friends a tad early.  We have busy weekends ahead so we found a night we could take him and friends to see a minor league baseball team game in our hometown.  Afterwards it was his first home sleepover.  The best group of boys ever!

I meant to post about his invite earlier and to let you know that it's in my Etsy shop.  Colors, wording and etc...can be customized.  I printed them on kraft paper and was super happy the way they turned out.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today we finally got rain.  Like a good half hour soak 'em up grass, plants and flowers kind of rain.  I seriously think they are in shock right now.

It seemed liked the perfect time for baking cookies.  One of my all time favorite cookie recipe is one that I ripped out of an old Martha Stewart Living magazine.  It's been a family favorite.  I love myself a traditional crispy chocolate chip cookie but, this recipe is like eating cake and cookies all in one.

I dare you to stop at one.
