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.

um, yum. it’s possible i’m drooling right now. or i may not be. you’ll never know!

(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!
i’m off to bring these to his work. i’m hoping his shop won’t devour them all before i can grab one!

backyard bonfires with my boys ❤ if you know me, one of the best words to describe me is "busy". i spend my days constantly running from one activity to the next. even though i love all that i'm doing, it's still easy to feel burnt out. especially with the holiday season so quickly approaching, i'm making it my intention so slow down. take a few deep breaths. sit and listen to the rain. treat myself to a coffee at my favorite cafe. get to a yoga class. make time to be still. 
you can't pour from an empty cup. how will you fill yours today? all i want to do is love on him but all he wants to do is hunt down the squirrels 😀
