birthday cake blondies

today is my wonderful husband’s birthday!
(it’s a pretty big one too!)
in honor of this most momentous occasion, i baked birthday cake blondies.
what is this magical creation you ask?
it’s like if a cookie and a brownie had a baby and that baby played with sprinkles.
heavenly/divine/perfect…insert word of choice.

because i’m so darn nice i’ve decided to share the recipe i used.
i love baking so i had to experiment a little and am totally happy with the result.

(they didn’t.)

to jazz them up even more i cut them into bit size pieces and then topped them with some chocolate fudge frosting and even more sprinkles!

yum yum yum.
best way to celebrate a birthday or any occasion is with cake!
happy birthday my dearest j!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
