TRYING - to not lose my patience when kids are doing the things kids do so well.

LEARNING - to not be so OCD when it comes to making desserts with 12 eager ladies:-) I might tell you more about that once I have recovered
USING - all the fabric in my bins for fun new flowers before buying more. (yes, this is a shameless plug = all flowers are on sale right now at The Trendy Owl)
PLANNING - some awesome cool giveaways for the month of December for YOU!  You are going to love the ones I have so far.
WORKING AT - getting on some sort of schedule for cleaning, family, baking, blogging…these late nights are killing me.

NEEDING – a haircut and color…I have an appointment tomorrow for highlights:-) Hopefully she doesn’t kill me when she sees I trimmed it myself…twice:-)
WAITING FOR – a shopping day with my hubby…can’t wait to do some Christmas shopping with him for our monsters.
ENJOYING – my BOGO Starbucks holiday drink…although I kind of wish I had gotten the peppermint mocha instead of the gingerbread.
LOVING – all things mint and chocolate this time of year:-)

Rice Krispie treats are the one thing I can eat all day long.  I usually just eat a small sliver every time I come in the kitchen, and then before you know it half the pan has mysteriously disappeared.  These ones have powdered brownie mix stirred into the melted marshmallow making them extra chocolatey.  Melted chocolate and andes mint pieces on top make these that much more decadent.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to stay out of this pan for long, so I bagged them up and sent them with my husband to work.  I wonder if the guys at his work are going to miss all these treats or are going to be happy because they won’t be gaining so much weight come January:-)

I guess I better start thinking of new ways to dispose of all these goodies I can’t be trusted around:-)

      I hear you!!! Too much baking goes on in my kitchen…and I have the tight jeans to prove it. The thought of not fitting through a door has me planning a gym date for the morning:-)

      Time management is the one thing I am setting out to conquer this next year…haven’t figured out how, but that’s what I need to do! Any ideas?

      I will have to try that noisy lid trick next time. The only problem is that no one is home with me during the day to hear the noisy lid:-)

      I’m not sure we will do any shopping on Black Friday either…it gets crazy out there. Online shopping with treats sounds way better:-)

      I was feeling so random last night when I wrote the post. I am glad you liked the little thoughts because I didn’t know if it was too out there for a recipe post:-)

    Seriously that looks delicious.

    And I was considering getting my hair done over the long weekend but your post reminded me that I cut my hair too, hahaha. The hairdresser always knows. -_- :)

    I like your list, I could relate to so many of those!!! I’m such a purist with Rice Krispie treats but I don’t know why???? I should be eating these instead! Love chocolate and mint!

    Now that the NBA playoffs are going on, I’m thinking of making some “cocoa krispies”@ “Basketballs” treats. all I need is chocolate flavored marshmallows, and a large size “Norpro”@ meatballer to give them their perfect round, shape. These will also be ideal for HS and colledge basketball pep rallies.
