monday munchies.

happy tuesday everyone. it's been a productive week so far. from baking at 7:30 monday morning, to finishing a massive case study for class, everything from my "important" list was completed for the past two days.

as i would like to do every week (if only my wonderful college budget would allow), i completed a pinterest find monday morning! i woke up early and began this adventure into the "better than crack brownie" creation process.

Better Than Crack Brownies:

1 batch your FAV brownie.
1 1/2cup peanut butter cups (chopped)
1 cup peanuts (salted, chopped)
1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 tbspn. butter
1 1/2 cup Rice Krispie cereal

you cook your brownies in a 9 x 13 pan for about 20-22 minutes {make sure you grease your pan well!}. then you top the brownies with peanuts and pb cups and bake for another 5 mins.
while they finish baking, melt butter, PB and chocolate chips in the microwave. add in cereal.
remove brownies and pour the cereal mixture over them.
refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting and serving!

i made these for my friend for his birthday and he and his other friends agree they were in fact "very excellent" and another source commented on them saying "dude, they are awesome." so i am guessing people liked them. not too hard to make either!

sunday night i conquered an 8 mile jog. the first 3 always seem to last forever, but after about 5 i was golden. i even finished on an uphill sprint. so, in other words, i am proud of myself. i honestly didn't think my body was going to catch up with where my mind had already put it. next saturday or sunday is going to be the big TEN. i hope dad has been training as much... thanksgiving is only a couple weeks away...


this weekend i got to time in atlanta with my grandparents. we went to secret church on friday night [their church did a simulcast of the sermon]. it was incredible. i felt i learned so much and was inspired to dig deeper into the topic we study often. i am very glad we got to go to it together. more on that another day...

i got to eat lunch with my cousin natalie. she is amazing and such an encouragement in my life. she is remarkable, and i LOVE spending time with her. i cannot wait for Christmas break when we get to hang out and laugh [a whole lot] with each other. 

i also got to go watch the lsu/bama game at this cool sports bar downtown. it is called Stats... and i would recommend it. although you may not have the pleasure of the same company as i, but you should check it out if you ever are in atl. 


anyways, short and sweet for a tuesday night. 
i think i am going to take the baby [as in nikon the baby] out tomorrow... the fall colors are just begging to get some screen time on the ole blog.

ALSO, just as a side note... i am so thankful for the group of musicians i get to worship with every week. tonight, we spent some time in fellowship and i just sat there with joy filling my heart. what an incredible blessing cornerstone is. what a passionate, loving group i have been placed in! although they joke on me {mostly because i get to be the only girl a lot of the time}, i know they love me too {cheeese}.

 they have such talents and gift from the Lord, and i get to witness them worship. i am so thankful everyday for what they have taught me these past three years. i could not have asked for a better blessing.
