I realized I reached a new level of complacency when I wouldn’t even pull myself up off the couch to snap a picture of these cookies. I reached over my plate of cookies, grabbed my phone and decided that would just have to do. Hot cookies fresh from the oven trump fancy camera pictures. And that was that.

This weekend we got some amazing news. I was so excited I screamed, then cried, then had to lie down from getting too excited and wearing myself out. Dude, pregnancy is killin’ me folks. I’m not my normal energetic self, I can barely walk to the bathroom without getting winded, it’s wonderful. ANYWAY.
Our exciting news caused for celebration, which meant I needed to get my winded butt in the kitchen and bake some cookies! I wasn’t gonna get all fancy schmancy and make a truffled salted caramel bacon studded something or other. I just wanted a simple cookie. OK, maybe a little fancier than standard chocolate chip, but not TOO much fancier.

A note on dipping cookies in milk: get a short wide mug so all of the cookie and your hand fits comfortably on each dunk. It just makes sense.
PS: I will be sharing what’s so exciting, just not QUITE yet.
