Hey guys! Are you shocked that I have more cookies for you?

I’m all cookies, all the time right now.

We have a bunch of new neighbors moving in right now (military community) and I have never been more excited for new people. They’re not even out of their moving trucks before I’m trying to hand tins of cookies to them.

I think baking is officially my favorite thing about the holidays.

I picked up ingredients for these yummy M&M’S® Brownie Cookies recently from the baking aisle at my local Walmart. The Walmart baking aisle has become my home in recent weeks – they have literally everything I need for my holiday baking.

Anyway, so what you need for these cookies is a box of Pillsbury™ Family Size Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix, Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® Vanilla Flavored Frosting, and M&M’S® Brand Minis Milk Chocolate Baking Bits.

And then you need some vegetable oil, eggs, a tiny bit of flour, but that’s it!

Super simple and fuss free!

These cookies are so delicious. The taste of brownies with frosting and M&M’S®? I’m all about them!

Plus, they’re easy enough for my kids to do the bulk of the work. So we got the gift of family time by baking together and then we were able to gift the cookies to our newest neighbors. Sweet treats are definitely two gifts in one!

Are you giving any goodies away as gifts this year? I think everyone in my life is getting cookies and fudge!

If you’re planning to stock up on Pillsbury™ and M&M’S®, make sure you take advantage of the Ibotta offer at Walmart!

(Sidenote: I insist that you download Ibotta immediately if you don’t already have it. I’ve been using it for years and my lifetime earnings is at $224.85!)

You guys.

I want you all to be proud of me. Not only do I have decorations up, I’ve even started buying presents. This is a big deal because up until about 3 days ago, my kids were only getting donations to my favorite charities in their name.

I have had quite the year.

At some point in the near future, I’ve got to A) figure out where to move and B) move myself, 3 kids, 3 dogs, and all our stuff.

So I am very much anti-stuff right now. I don’t want to bring anything else into the house that I will then have to store and then move. I just cannot handle anything else.

But yeah, I gave in and bought them a few things and they’ll be happy with what they get, dangit.

Weekly Family Menu Plan - 5 dinners, a weekend breakfast, and a yummy dessert!

Heeeey guys!

Guess what. I finally put my Christmas tree up on Friday night. As expected, when it wasn’t up on December 1, I decided to just not put it up but one of my kids is currently grounded forever and in an effort to keep him from driving me crazy, I sent him out to our shed to find the tree.

So the tree is up. Clementine keeps trying to dig a hole in the tree skirt. And someone keeps knocking ornaments off.

But whatever, it’s bright and sparkly and I’m glad it’s up.

So here’s this week’s menu and it has lots of delicious ideas! Enjoy!

Don’t forget to print out your grocery list before you head to the store!
