My Busy Thursday!

Well, yesterday was a busy nap time for me.  I got many things accomplished and there is no better nap time than that... except when I am also taking a nap! ;-)

Here is what I got done:
1) I finished a onesie dress for the Little Ladybug... pic later in post :-)
2) I did laundry... exciting right??
3) I made another baby head cuddle toy for my basket for the Heart for the World Auction at church.
4) I made delicious chocolate chip cookie covered Oreos... oh heavens these are good!

Well, it may not sound like a lot when its put in list form... but I think I did pretty good for one nap time sitting! :-)

Here is a picture of the new dress I got done for the Little Ladybug.  I think it is just adorable and it was oh so easy!  It is almost cute enough to use for her Easter dress this year... except I want that to be a fancy poofy dress... so I might have to see if I can modify this simple idea to make it more of a "poofy fancy" dress.

Onesie dress


What do you think?  I made it by basically following the tutorials here and here.  I modified both tutorials a little bit to make my dress.  I basically used the jersey dress directions only I put my seams inside since I didn't use a knit material and it would fray if I didn't finish it off.  Try it out... you will be amazed at the results and will be oh so glad you did! 

And because I know that all of you are just drooling over the thought of chocolate chip cookie covered Oreos (or at least if you are like me you are) I will share how I made mine. 

  • I started by making my typical chocolate chip cookie dough recipe... make whatever one you like.  I doubled mine so I could have more cookies in the end.  Keep in mind that each of these cookies takes the amount of dough normally required for two cookies... make sense?
  • Then, place a spoonful of dough on your cookie sheet.
  • Squish an Oreo down in the middle of your dough. 
  • Next, place another spoonful of cookie dough on top of the Oreo.  Try to smooth it out over the top.  If it isn't perfect its okay because the dough flattens itself as it cooks anyways.  I was able to fit about 6 cookies on my cookie sheet.... you don't want to overfill your cookie sheet.

Cookies baking! :-)

  • Place in the oven and bake (at the temp your recipe suggests) for between 13 and 17 minutes or until done to your liking. 
  • Take out and E-N-J-O-Y!   These cookies are really best enjoyed warm out of the oven with a nice glass of milk... oh its Heaven people... Heaven. 

Next up, a tutorial on how our Little Ladybug's big girl car seat went from the before picture to the after picture :-)
