• Hi, friends!

    I made these Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies the other day, and they turned out so, so well. Holy yum indeed. They will definitely become one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes!


    These cookies are soft and chewy with a little crispness on the edges, and the flavor is a mix of subtle coconut and rich chocolate. Oooh, yes, they are quite incredible… and long gone. Mal and I polished them off in less than 24 hours!



    • 1/2 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/8 tsp baking powder
    • 1/8 tsp baking soda
    • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
    • 4 tbsp softened butter
    • 1 egg
    • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
    • 1/4 cup shredded coconut


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well until batter is blended evenly.
    3. Roll batter into large 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet.
    4. Bake cookies for approximately 10-12 minutes or until tops start to lightly brown.
    5. Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool before serving.

    Makes 15 cookies

    And here are some of my all-time favorite cookie recipes that I make time and time again!

    Thank Goodness for Strollers + A Halloween-Inspired Workout

    October 30, 2014

    Heyyyyyy! Happy Day-Before-Halloween! A little recap of yesterday… Quinn woke up at 4:00 AM and then would not go back to sleep. Whomp whomp. For the past week or so, he was sleeping 7-9 hours, rocking the 3:30 AM feeding, and then sleeping until 6:00/7:00 AM, which was awesome, but then he switched things up […]

    I had my first Remicade infusion on Monday afternoon and it wasn’t so bad. It was actually kind of enjoyable! Ok, so let’s rewind a little. I didn’t tell you guys the whole story the other day. It didn’t want to start the week off on such a negative note on CNC, and I was still waiting to […]

    Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely weekend. So, my weekend…. well, it was not awesome. I’m in the middle of a terrible flare that isn’t responding to drugs, so, needless to say, I’m not a happy camper right now. I talked to my doctor a few times over the weekend, and […]

    Hey, hey! Happy Friday! Thanks for all of your well wishes on yesterday’s post. You guys are the best.

    Not-On-My-List Target Purchases + Men Drinking Breast Milk

    October 23, 2014

    Most random blog post title ever? I think so! Haha! Yesterday, my “morning” started at 4:30 AM when I heard Quinn crying. Mal actually got up with him, so I could sleep a little longer. Well, I’m actually not sleeping very much/at all during this flare. I wake up every hour or so in pain because […]
