What's my age again?

Happy 23rd Birthday to Ryan!
(You have no idea how long I've waited for that Blink 182 lyric to be relevant and you can be sure I've been using it to wish my friends Happy Birthday on facebook all year long.)
I already gifted him this sweet bike,
and today we're celebrating with homemade Alfredo for dinner and cookies for dessert.
Speaking of which...
you know that ONE recipe you just can't master no matter how hard you try?
This is mine.
My mom's peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.
They've been a family favorite for years and they're a super simple recipe but every time I try to make them, they don't turn out quite like hers. Either the texture's off or they're too dry or too done or whatever.
This time I bought the EXACT brand of each ingredient she uses (and I double-checked with her just to be sure) but still...different texture. Small cookies. And where did all of these chocolate chips come from when the recipe only called for two cups?!
The only thing we can think of now is that perhaps her oven does
something special that no other oven can replicate.
So, mom, when you come visit in June, could you please pack your oven?
 I'm pretty sure it'll fit in a carry-on bag.

What I wore: 30 days. No outfit repeats. Day 13.
Vest, Solemio. Shirt, Kirra. Hat, Forever 21. Shoes, Target.


  1. Haha I blame the oven too when things don't turn out how I wanted them! PS. Cute vest!
