Thinking Out Loud: Work, Work, Cookies…

Hi friends!

img_6383Happy Thursday! I hope y’all have had a great week thus far. My week has been filled with lots of work, e.g. yard work, school work, life work (that counts right?). I don’t really know what my weekend will hold, but I’m hoping for a little R&R πŸ˜‰ I’m not complaining, though. I enjoy being busy. Today I’m gonna open up my laptop and do some Thinking Out Loud.Β 

I’m A Cookie Monster.

I love baking and I love food. So, whenever I find a yummy recipe I get super stoked. I’ve been loving these 3 ingredient vegan cookies. They’re SO GOOD! All you need is bananas, oatmeal, and a spice of your choice. I used cinnamon in mine and boy wereΒ they yummy. They’re kinda like banana nut muffin meets banana nut bread. Side note: I recommend you store these in the fridge since they’re banana based cookies. Otherwise, they won’t last more than 2 days in the cookie jar.

 

Earth Science = CONQUERED!!!

After several exams, over 950 pages of reading, and lots of late nights; I finally finished my Earth Science text book. It was kinda cool learning about our planet and solar system, but it gets a little old after 100 pages – if I do says so myself. Overall, my final grade was an A and I’m done with the class for good. Whew!

 

Little acts of kindness.

A couple weeks ago I was going through my emails and saw an email from Starbucks saying that I had an e-gift. This was unexpected considering I had no idea who could have sent it to me. When I opened the email I saw that it was from a Roofing Company that I’d never heard of or worked with before. They sent me a $5 Starbucks gift card and said they hoped it would brighten my day (which it totally did). I know to some this may seem minuscule, but to me it wasn’t. How these people got my email, I have no clue. Why they sent me the gift card, I don’t know that either. But, their small act of kindness definitely put a smile on my face. A great reminder that we should spread love to others. No act of kindness is too small ❀

 

Snapchat.

Well, my fellow readers, I did it. I made a Snapchat! As if I didn’t have too many social media accounts already. Oh, Edye. When will you learn? I’ve been playing around with it ever since I made my account and I think I understand 70% of it so far. It’s pretty fun and now I can finally use all the filters I see other people using πŸ˜€ Β If you wanna see my “snaps” follow me @edyenicole

 

That’s all my brain has for today. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post and have a wonderful weekend. Catch ya later!

Question Time:

Do you use Snapchat?Β 

What’s your favorite kind of cookie?

  2. What a nice surprise, receiving a Starbucks gift card! I love little acts of kindness like that. It’s amazing how something as small as $5 can brighten someones entire day!

    I love snapchat! It’s definitely not user friendly at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s super easy, and just really fun!

  3. Such a cute post, dear! Thanks for sharing this with us. Those cookies totally won my heart when I read vegan + three ingredients! I’d LOVE to try them out.
    As for your question, I’m still in the weird group of non-Snapchat-users 😦 I just don’t know if I could keep up with it! Shame on me, haha.

    • Thanks so much, Deborah! I felt the same way when I saw the recipe. Snapchat is pretty fun, but I have so many social media accounts now. I may have a slight addiction… πŸ˜‰ xx

    • I’m obsessed with them! I may make another batch today πŸ˜‰ I was on the fence about SC for while, too; then I took the plunge. It’s a little confusing at first, but now it’s super fun to play around with.

  6. No, I have not jumped on the SnapChat bandwagon, and honestly don’t think that I will anytime soon.

    My favorite cookie would be a peanut butter blossom for sure.

    Thank you for sharing this with us on the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you again when we open our doors at 12 AM EST on Friday.

  7. Well, thank you so very much for visiting me today and for your sweet blog comments about my grand daughter. To say I am over the moon in joy is an understatement for sure!

    I think that is awesome about your $5 gift card surprise, that’s amazing, truly! And grats on getting through Earth Science. I remember it well – I think I was in high school when “science” formed into different sciences – Biology, Earth Science, ect. Yes, I am old like that, haha.

    Funny you mention cookies – I literally JUST made peanut butter cookies and washed my hands and sat down to read blogs and yours was my first to read. They’re not my favorites, but I had everything on hand. My FAVORITE two kinds of cookies are Russian Tea Cookies (popular at the holidays, very nutty round balls with powdered sugar on top, and my other favorite is White Chocolate Macadamia – yum yum yummmmm!)

    Thanks for the easy 3 ingred. cookie/bar recipe. I was a vegetarian for 32 years and a vegan 6 of them – I would have loved that recipe back in the day! But my 17 year-old niece is now, so will share that recipe with her too!

    Hope you’re getting the well-deserved R and R you hoped for! Happy Day! : – )

  8. The cookies look good and sound super healthy! Congrats on finishing the class, and with an A no less! I have heard a lot about snapchat, but have been dragging my feet adding one more thing to the plate. You’ll have to let me know how you like it.

    • Thank you, Carlee! Snapchat is lots of fun and a great way to post quick updates; but I totally understand not wanting to add another social media account to your plate. I have quite a few myself… πŸ˜‰

  10. I have said it before that Cookies are my Kryptonite! I could eat well all week but give me a plate of chocolate chip cookie and all is lost. I have not tried snapchat yet I know everyone is heading that way but like you said I just can’t bring myself to fit anymore social media in my life. Maybe next month! Will have to try out your 3 ingredient cookies they sound healthy, Maybe when I eat the whole batch I won’t feel so guilty..Lol
