Good Things Come...


To Those that MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!! :)

I don't believe in that "those who wait" crapola...if you want it, make it happen. Then those good things come...like cookies for example.

Cookies happen when you make them :) And do I love making cookies!!!
I don't bake with light ingredients...that is blasphemy...BAKING IS YUMMINESS!!!! DAMMIT!

Get all the dry ingredients together...
Then you add 3 cups of oats...which makes it a great arm workout...stirring that LAST bit is really tough...but sometimes that's how life is :)
Then all the sweet stuff :) Ya know...like butter, chocolate chips, sugar, and that heavenly stuff called "sweetened condensed milk"...lets all say that together SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK...that stuff is crack...not quite as impressive as Nutella...but damn...
Combine and bake...
And next time...remember to take a picture of the finished product BEFORE half of it is eaten...oops :)
Whatever...YUMMMMMMMM

And FINALLY...THE BARN IS DONE!!! AS IN DONE DONE DONE!!!!
I feel like I gave birth to this baby...it's taken a very long time (ok like 18 months total...I don't have patience)....to get the damn thing built....footing went in yesterday and I LOVE IT!!!
All this space ;) Now time for all the equipment...anyone wanna help me move?
I love the footing...packs well, but softer...we will be adding salt to hold moisture in...but I love the footing....its awesome! I am a footing snob. Bad footing equals injured dogs. YUCK. So I'm so happy!
Good things come to those who choose to take the first step :)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you made bars, not cookies. ;o) But WHAT kind of bars are they??? They look sinfully delicious.

Congrats on the arena!! The footing looks divine.

The barn looks amazing! Congratulations! I'll be there in 10+ hours (so save me a bite of the cookies/bars please!) - :)

Maybe if you saved some of the yummy dessert, more folks would come help you move! :D

Atta girl, I love that saying...."be the kind of girl that when you crawl out of bed in the morning...." You are that....seize the day. Oh and glad you are back to blogging.....I really missed you! PS I'm not sure if I should be frightened or very very excited...but I am following in your footsteps with two litter mates from my Nell/Jake cross. Grace is staying :)
