Blondies! One of my favorite baked treats. Have you ever had them? I first made them about 6 years ago when I was craving a certain something but couldn’t pin my finger on it. After searching for recipes and inspiration, I found something called Blondies and they seem to be the thing I was needing.
I’m very excited. This has been a short work week for me with Monday being Memorial day and now today is my Friday. That made it a 3 day work week…sweeet! Next week my husband and I are going on a little anniversary trip and I can not wait to spend a few days just relaxing and
