Chocolate Cake S’mores Cookies

The kids and I had so much fun making these cookies tonight!  They are YUMMY!

1 box devil’s food cake mix

2 eggs

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/2 Cup melted butter (1 stick)

3 Hershey’s Chocolate bars, cut into rectangles

1 1/2 Cups mini marshmallows

1 1/2 Cups graham crackers, cut up into small pieces

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl mix the cake mix, eggs, brown sugar and butter until combined.  With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.  Press cookies into little discs to flatten slightly.  On each cookie press a chocolate bar, a couple marshmallows and a couple graham cracker pieces.  Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cooked through.

2.  Remove and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  Serve with milk and enjoy!

Valentine’s Boudoir Sessions

Drum roll please…..Erin and I are pleased to announce we’re adding boudoir photography to our list of specialties! We would be honored to take YOUR images this year, to give to your husband, boyfriend, or just to do for yourself as a reminder of how beautiful you are….inside AND out! It’s so easy to think “I’m too fat” or “I have horrible skin” and opt out of a terrific opportunity to take lasting images like these. Well, let me tell you a little something….I’m at the heaviest weight I’ve ever been, I lack confidence in myself AND I have a goofy ‘come hither’ look – but Erin made me feel so comfortable, so pretty and SO at ease today, that by the end of our session, I was SO excited to see the images, I couldn’t stand it! Lucky for me, my photographer is also my partner in crime and my sister  🙂

So please ladies, don’t think for one second that you’re in no shape to do images like these. You ARE! And I promise you will leave your session with us feeling 10x more beautiful than you did coming in.

The session date for this special event is Saturday, January 28th, 2012. We are also offering hair styling and make-up applications for an additional (and minimal) charge, if that at all interests you!

Contact us now by emailing us at to inquire and to book something before it’s too late! We promise you a good time, and lots of giggles and smiles!

how charli and i spent our day off


I rarely get to spend time alone with Charli, but today was one of those days. She didn’t have daycare, so I decided to use some of my PTO time to stay home with her! We went to the office for about an hour, went grocery shopping, made 15 loaves of banana bread, and then I caught Charli looking outside watching two squirrels run up and down the tree chasing each other. She was cracking up!

I decided to grab the camera, and got a few shots of her “squirrel watching”
