Unsurpassable Chocolate Chip Cookies

A good friend of mine gave me this recipe a couple of years ago. It's so delightfully sinful, I wanted to share this with you!

Unsurpassable Chocolate Chip Cookies
(This recipe makes 6 dozen – you can freeze half if you like)
1 cup butter (I use ½ cup real butter and ½ cup margarine)
1 cup shortening (I use butter flavored)
3 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 T. vanilla
4 cups flour
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. salt
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups chopped walnuts (I usually make ½ dough without- so I only put 1 cup walnuts)
Cream butter, shortening and sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix all dry ingredients together and add a little at a time into butter mixture until well mixed. Add chocolate chips and nuts. (I take out ½ of the dough and then add nuts) Dip out a walnut size amount and roll into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Bake on parchment paper – 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. I bake usually 10 – I like really chewy cookies.

My life and the traveling pants.

Years ago, I never wore jeans. Just dresses and skirts. I loved getting dressed up! I don't know when, well, yes I do know when it all changed. I was a little over weight for a couple of years and instead of just buying new clothes. I actually, had my current clothes altered. Note to self: just buy new clothes. So, there I am living in a new town, nothing to do, but eat barbecue, watch reality shows, and go to work for little change. I couldn't afford to buy anything, including new clothes. So, I packed up my car with all that I could and tracked it back to Houston where there was already a job and an apartment waiting on me. In the next couple of months I managed to lose all the weight because I had things to do, people to see. One day, I thought, "I need a pair of jeans, but what size do I wear"? I mean I was already wearing my old pants that were too big. I trucked it on into The Gap where this very nice male customer service rep greeted me and asked me what I was…

A little bit country.

Hart of Dixie is a new tv show I've recently discovered on the CW every Monday night at 8:00 p.m. central time. It's a small town show and reminds me a little of The Gilmore Girls, the town from Back to the Future, and Pleasantville. Inspired by this small town feel, I have put together a country outfit from various stores!
These cute earrings are Montana Silversmiths Small Stars & Horseshoe Post Earrings $34.00, which I found at Tractor Supply. Harley Davidson sells this cool short sleeved shirt at $65.00. Carhartt® Ladies' Double Front Sandstone Work Dungaree pants $44.99 and these adorable Western Chief® Ladies' Strap Classic Rain Boot at $9.99 is such a steal, both from Tractor Supply! Who knew that a gal could buy a lawn mower, and a hot outfit at Tractor Supply?

This lawn mower just looks fun Huskee® 42 in. 420cc LT 42 Lawn Tractor $999.99!
