Make It Yourself Monday!

08 September 2014
We are starting the week off on the right foot folks! Fingers crossed I can keep this up :) In case any of you are wondering I had a great first week back at school. We mainly were just getting back into the groove of things so this week will really be back to school. I know some you really want/like knowing about what I'm doing in school and how it is going so I plan to post updates about school mainly on Friday :)

Anyways, lets get into today's post which is a baking post! I won't lie to you but I made these cookies back in July thinking I would post about them before now but alas I haven't posted about them. They are probably one of my new favorite cookies! This is why I haven't made them since I first made them because they are so darn good! They are red velvet cookies and boy are they yummy! They are not that hard either it is just the waiting that makes them kind of annoying to bake. That being said they are totally worth it!

I found this recipe at Gonna Want Seconds (Pinterest to start). Check out Kathleen's site for more yummy recipes!
