Lucky List 7

These posts are titled, "Lucky List." They're just small moments throughout the week that made me happy - moments that I feel lucky to have experienced.

-This is my favorite time of year! Our neighbor had two mares give birth this week, and another is due any day. It's amazing how close these babes stay to their mommas. Watching them explore the world and interact with each other is the best.

-I'm loving all the flowers and blossoms on the trees. 
We took sometime to walk around temple square to admire their gardens and flower beds. I love their flowers more than their Christmas lights display. 

-J.R. and I made chocolate cover strawberries. They were totally worth the time and the mess.

-We also enjoyed eating steak and grilled shrimp at home. I swear J.R. grills for us at least three times a week.

-I also scored an amazing deal on some new jeans. I was able to get a new pair of $90 dollar jeans for $16!

-My little sister bought a new bow, and she let me play with it. I had never shot a compound bow before, but after the first shot I was addicted. It really is so much fun. 
She let me practice shooting until I could actually hit the target I was aiming at. I need to keep working on my arm strength though! Its quite the workout and I had a hard time pulling back the 40 pound draw. 


(ps. Don't judge my outfit. I was wearing cute wedges before putting my boots on.) 

-Lastly, this song and music video. Kip Moore's "Running For You." (J.R. and I are really into Kip Moore's music lately.) I had listened to this song on iTunes and just liked it, but once I saw the music video I was in love with it.

Rollo Cake Cookies


I'm grateful to my co-worker for introducing me to these delicious cookies! 
They're easy to make, and even easier to eat! (The hardest part is unwrapping all the Rolos.)



You only need four ingredients:

24-28 Rolos
1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Unwrap about 28 Rolos.
3. Combine cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil in a medium sized bowl. Keep stirring until you have a
really thick cookie dough.
4. Take about a tablespoon of dough, using the palm of your hands, roll it into a ball and then flatten. Place a Rolo into the middle of the flattened dough and fold the dough around the Rolo. Roll between the palm of your hands one last time to smooth out the edges.
5. Place 12 cookies on a greased cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 8 minutes or until the tops of the cookies start to firm and crack.
7. Share with the people you love.
