I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was very productive! Ive had an impossibly long to-do list that wasn’t showing any progress, until this weekend! We got lots done and I’m feeling almost ready for this little guy to get here! 😛 He’s due in less than two weeks..I think he’ll come right around his due date, but my fiance is pretty convinced he’ll come early…any guesses?!

I have an appointment tomorrow morning..so we’ll see if there is any progress…the good news is, they’re thinking this one won’t be as big as my first..which would be SPECTACULAR..my son was 10 lbs 6 oz when he was born..I would love a smaller babe this time! 😉

In the meantime, I’m still enjoying lots of wonderful holiday treats! Like these incredible Double Chocolate Peppermint Glazed Cookies! Oh they’re so good! They’re rich, so chocolatey, super soft and chewy on the inside, with a little crunch on the outside!

The peppermint glaze goes perfectly with the indulgent, double chocolate cookie..it tastes like Christmas in your mouth! These beauties went so fast, I couldn’t keep them in the house! I definitely highly recommend these beauties! The peppermint glaze combined with the soft chocolate couldn’t get any better!
