Jumbo Pretzel M&M Cookies just for me

There’s never enough time. We’ve all had this feeling. There’s always one more thing that needs to get done, one more chore, a little more work, dinner to be made, wash, rinse, repeat. Things seem to be exponentially speeding up and at times it can all be overwhelming. It feels like the list keeps growing and I can’t seem to scratch enough items off. I wonder if this feeling is something that woman feel more pressure to keep working, keep doing, keep going. It seems like men are more able to relax and unwind, no matter how many dishes are piling up in the sink.

One thing I have learned in my recent love affair with mountain biking is that there will never be enough time until you make it. Unless you demand that this time be for you, the few moments you need to breathe and relax, no ones going to give it to you. I could work every night long into the night and never have time to stop and enjoy a nice glass of wine and trashy television with my man. I could sit and code all afternoon and simply not wiggle in the 2 hours for a great ride. But that’s not a way to live. There will always be more work. No matter how many things you scratch off that list, new things will always be added to it. So if you need to stop, sit, and flip through that magazine, take a line from Nike and just do it.

This is something I am learning the hard way. But something I feel is very important for all of us. I am not one to sit and watch hours of TV every week, get manicured or massaged. But every now and then, even a few moments for myself are something I have to stop and enjoy.

Selected for you :   Vanilla Bean Baby Doughnuts

There’s an extra bonus if I can sneak in a cookie in that moment.

These cookies look incredibly delicious! i would love to make them for the Ronald McDonald House luncheon at the end of the month. A group of us get together and cook lunch for the families of the hospitalized children once a month so we like to include some kid friendly foods for the sibs. It is great to lift the spirits of the families that are so worried about their special children. And a good cookie always brings a smile! One thing though - How many cookies does one recipe make? Thanks for the great idea.......

It's like you were writing about me in this post. I kind of feel bad for my hubs. He just waits patiently by while I'm typing away at my computer or whisking batter in the kitchen. You just inspired me to take some time to myself. Thanks, girl!

These cookies sound amazing. Like, AMAZING!
