So much has been going on lately. Hopefully I’ll be able to post more often now that things have (kind of) settled down. Just a warning, this is going to be a photo-heavy post!
Kellen and I got to spend an entire month in New York and get paid for it. We had such a good time and did so many things. I couldn’t even tell you everything we did, so I’ll just post some pictures and hopefully that’ll cover a few highlights. There are also more pictures on my Instagram.
Also, I got a major haircut (major for me at least). I cut off 8 inches! I haven’t had short hair since I was 10, so it was a pretty big cut for me. I am so happy with it!! I love it. Plus, I got to donate it to a great cause, Children with Hair Loss.
And I got new glasses from Zenni Optical. I’m obsessed with Zenni. I got 3 pairs for $34, and that’s including shipping. Have you heard of it before?
Unfortunately, another pet of ours passed away while I was in New York. His name was Tabby and he was a tabby cat we found on the side of the road when I was 3 or 4. He was a childhood pet like Sunny (I’m now realizing it’s a bad idea to get all of your pets at the same time), and I was sad to see him go, but I know it was his time. For the past year or so, he would only sleep under the covers and he rarely came out, so it’s comforting to know he’s better off now. I will definitely miss him.
- 2⅔ cups flour
- 2 tsp cream of tartar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- Cinnamon topping:
- 2 Tbsp white sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt set aside.
- Combine the butter, eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla. I used my mixer and it worked great!
- Add in the dry ingredients. (Flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.)
- Spread in a greased 9×13 dish. The batter will be thick almost like a cookie mixture.
- Combine the cinnamon topping ingredients and sprinkle over the top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until top springs back when pressed.
