Hello and welcome!

Thanks for stoping by! That's me, and my super cute and spunky 1 year old, Nora. When we're not laying on the floor taking selfies, we also like to bake, take lots of pretty photos, and practice yoga. Aside from posting way too many pictures of Nora on instagram, I also take pretty wedding picures and make pretty baby items. So browse around, and keep up with all the latest.
More about me...

How is it July already!?! It feels like just yesterday I started the “My Favorite Things” series on this blog, and now half the year has gone by! Well I’ve been doing these “My Favorite Things” posts since January, and I thought, for my 6 month anniversary and because I’ve been so good about blogging about all of my favorite things, I’d reward you guys with a little giveaway/contest! Yay! See the details below…

I probably haven’t talked too much about on the blog about my addiction to chocolate… but… its pretty bad. I take “chocoholic” to a whooooole new level. Seriously. I just can’t resist chocolate. In fact, I love chocolate so much, I don’t really think a dessert (or snack) is *worth* it unless there is some sort of chocolate involved. Lemon cookies? bleck! Blueberry muffins? Where are the chocolate chips!?! Sugar candies? ppffshh! Bring on the snickers.

So last month, while visiting my sister, I brought my whoopie pie recipe book and made her some delicious chocolate chocolate chip cheesecake whoopies for her birthday. They were SO so sooooo good!

I tried to find a link on Amazon for the recipe book that I have, but I couldn’t. This doesn’t really surprise me, as I bought the book from Marshalls and usually, things that you buy from that store don’t seem to exist *anywhere* else in the world, except in other Marshalls/T.J.Maxx’s… so here’s a recipe book on Amazon that is similar, and one I would definitely buy if I didn’t already have a fabulous whoopie book :)


** If you’d like to see some of my other favorite things, you can click on the category “favorite things” under the title of this post, or just click here. :)

*The Giveaway!* So tell me, who else here has an unabashed love for all things chocolate or even just dessert in general? Just leave a comment below before 11:59pm Sunday, July 17th, and I’ll pick one lucky winner to receive a copy of the above-mentioned Whoopie recipe book! Annnnnnd go!
**I extended the contest because I dont think there was enough time for people to come and comment. So, you have a full week! Remember, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post (it can be about anything, it doesn’t have to be about whoopies, chocolate, or dessert of any kind!). :)

    Michelle – I love chocolate and can’t keep in the house – I have a choco-phobic husband. Isn’t it awful? I think that we, together should trek to Chocopologie Cafe (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chocopologie-Cafe/112892462130?sk=wall) !

      Bina, I know!!! I sometimes want to bring in chocolate things to work for everyone and feel bad b/c Ary can’t eat it. :( I’m totally IN for a trip to Chocopologie Cafe though!! Yes, please!

    You’ve tried Grammy’s Black Moons, right? Ask Bethany to make them for you sometime, though her’s are not as good as Grammy’s!

    • Michelle -
