happy Friday :) 

the hubs and I had a fun little getaway to the beach...
love our California weather {mind you it's still winter}

we sat on a bench with our Starbucks 
watching the paddle boarders and swimmers....

love this beautiful poem in the fence at Brown's park in Laguna Beach....


this cat sits with the kids while they do homework,

the sick waiting room tank...

yummy chicken

we made the most de-lish chicken last night...

all you need is: 4-5 chicken breasts, 1 cup mayo, 1/2 cup grated parmesan,
1 tsp garlic, 1 tsp seasoned salt, 1 tsp pepper (mix all and top on chicken)
bake at 375 for about 40 minutes or until done...

I was going to take an after "baked and browned" shot
but as soon as it was done the fam was eating and there 
were absolutely NO leftovers...it was a hit :) yeah!

thin mint chocolate cupcakes

it's that time of year again... good ol' thin mints
are a plenty~ so I made some chocolate cupcakes with them :) 

just spray the liners and place a cookie in each one...
**sidenote: after making and eating these last week
I'd recommend putting some batter down first, THEN 
add a cookie, then add the rest of the batter....

prepare your cake mix according to package directions and fill 3/4 full...

bake as directed for cupcakes, cool, frost, and enjoy...

these are for my sweet friend's birthday
but we will definitely be making them again around here...

happy baking
