Cookies and Feelings

Another blog post where I talk about cookies and emotions? Pregnant  {any} girl's heaven! 
See the first installments of cookies and feelings here and here.  

Feelings

Happy that it is almost Thanksgiving and almost almost Christmas!
Loving this:
A pro of pregnancy! Suckers!!  What? I have to give birth in March?......Touche!
Excited about my best friends wedding!! And to spend Thanksgiving in Arizona with my family.
Annoyed that I get tired so easily.  By the time I take the full trash bag out, tie it, yell at Ben to come take it outside and then refill with a fresh bag I am ready to call it a day. 
Nervous about above mentioned birth, and healthcare and breastfeeding, and being responsible for a tiny child.
Needing a timeout from politics, for like four years.
Grateful for bloggers and my new lov-ah-The Boppy Preggo Pillow.  You guys all commented and told me it was a must have-came in the mail yesterday-best sleep I have had since I have been pregnant. Cassie+Boppy 4 EVA!
Hoping that this weekend is a good one.

Cookies



Can you smell the fall goodness?  Who does not love some crinkly gingersnaps!  We have been inhaling these the last few days.  I like to warm mine up in the microwave for a couple of seconds and dip them in milk.  These cookies remind me of Christmas and home and now kind of of stretch marks.  This recipe is super easy, the key is to take them out at 8 or 9 minutes even if they don't look done yet, they are!  

Gingersnap Cookies
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp ginger
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup margarine
1 egg

Cream together butter, sugar, egg and molasses.  Add the dry ingredients and mix
Roll into balls and then roll the balls in sugar
Place on ungreased  cookie sheet
Bake @350 for 8-9 minutes.

cassie, your blog is so cute! and don't worry, labor is way easier than everyone says (if you are getting an epidural...i can't speak for a natural birth). and that is coming from the biggest wimp on the planet...ask vanessa what happened freshman year haha!
