Peanut Butter Cookies

This week I ate a lot of ice cream. I would like to note that this ice cream eating had everything nothing to do with seeing huge pictures of my ex all over facebook with a tiny blond wrapped around him......Its just that I like eating ice cream......from the tub.......sitting beside the a daggy clothes.....and staying at home.

Alright! You caught me! I was sooking this week. Goodness knows why? Far be it from me to want to deny happiness from anyone I have ever cared about......but must they be quite so very happy right on my computer screen? It put me in a bit of a funk. I was a rat bag for at least three days and instead of being a grown up and buying groceries, I just bought muffins from the near by cafe for breakfast a couple of days in a row. This is extremely naughty for my budget and my dress size.

So I decided to shake things up. It was time to stop sooking, and start behaving!

I believe very very passionately in the healing powers of a clean room, and a new hair colour whenever I need to change my headspace. I also think starting a creative project is always super constructive to make you change your perspective. So I made some super cute cookies, that were peanut butter flavoured. They were so yummy! Maybe even my favourite sugar cookie recipe so far! I think next time I will add chocolate chips.....just think of that, chocolate chip, peanut butter sugar cookies. AMAZING!

(This is what I do at pastry school when I'm board........I go into the elevator and take photo's of what I'm wearing that day.......super constructive and productive! But while we are on the subject....great outfit right?)

Anyway I'm off to go to a dress up party, stop sooking, have some craft beers, and celebrate life (and my extra blond hair.) Hope your having a good night too!
