Five For Friday

We are leaving tonight to head back to the great Ohio! We've have a wonderful time in Hilton Head, but I am always excited to get back to my own house and my own bed! Plus, I have all kinds of fun ideas planned since it's summer!! Our last day in Hilton Head will be full of jet skis and pool time! Corbin and I rent jet skis on every vacation....we should really think about investing in our own! 

I am excited to be linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for the Five for Friday linky party! My post won't really be school related as I've been on vacation all week!

So, Monday was my day to cook dinner for the family on our vacation. I made these cookies for dessert. I like to think they are a "healthier" cookie than your typical chocolate chip (or maybe we just tell ourselves that so we don't feel bad for eating soooo many!!) Any who, these really are fabulous if you're looking for a new recipe! 

Reese's Pieces Monster Cookies
3 eggs
1 stick of butter 
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
4  1/2 c. oatmeal
1 c. peanut butter
12 oz. Reese's pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream eggs, butter and sugars. Add peanut butter and mix until creamy. Add baking soda and gradually add oatmeal. Fold in Reese's pieces. (***The consistency will look like the picture above! )
Lightly spray cookie sheet with Pam. 
Bake for ten minutes. Let cookies cool  before you try to remove them from the pan.
Enjoy your "healthier" snack! :)

This is my adorable niece Aliya and I on the pier at Harbour Town. She is quite the cutie and has been a hoot this vacation. She is at the perfect age! She is only one of my 10 nieces and nephews! 

My stitch fix is scheduled to be at my house on MONDAY!! I am sooo very excited! 

Would you like me to post pics of the outfits I receive?! 

Sorry to keep posting pics of my darling nieces and nephews but I just can't help it! This is little Zackory! Probably the happiest baby I've ever met!  He was such a big boy floating around in the pool!

Lastly, I thought I'd share a pic of me and the hubs. This picture was taken last night at Harbour Town. We were watching a dolphin from the pier and the little ones were sooo intrigued! Ah who am I kidding, even the adults were excited!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and I promise to get back to the teacher stuff next week!  :)


  1. Oh, my gosh. You are on my turf. I live on Hilton Head. The best Friday night entertainment is down at Coligny Beach at the Big Bamboo. The Beagle's play Beatle music. Then when my grandchildren are in town they like to go out in the center venues and sing along and dance on stage with the free entertainment. If you get up to the Boo we will be at table 16, front row to listen to Beatle music.

    1. Thanks so much for the recommendation! Unfortunately, we packed up and started home about 9 p.m. Friday night. Sounds like a fun time though! Hope you are enjoying your summer!

  2. Looks like you had a fabulous vacation! Wow 10 nieces and nephews, how fun! Love the photos of your little cuties. Please post pics of your stitch fix. I signed up, but sadly my first one won't arrive until July 18th :( Safe travels back home.

    Luv My Kinders

    1. We had a great time Laura! I am anxiously awaiting the mail today :)
