My Thoughts This Week

1. I'm starting to lose my voice. Seriously. I sound like a dying animal of some sort every time I open my mouth. It's not pretty. My kids are scared. I also can't hear out of one ear. I really need to get over this stupid cold. Or sinus infection. Or cough. Or all three. :P

2. My hubby and I are addicted to Criminal Minds. It's on every night. 2 episodes. Why do I watch it when it gives me nightmares? Just kidding. I really don't get nightmares, but it does freak me out sometimes and makes it hard to fall asleep. I love it though.

3. I'm watching the Newsies this weekend. I heart that show. I had a crush on Jack (Christian Bale), when I was younger. And Spot Conlon. I thought he was hot because he was tough and everyone was scared of him. See? I liked the "bad boy" even in my childhood! lol My sister has never seen it and I told her it's unacceptable. I know every word to every song. I may or may not know all the actors lines as well ... 

4. Writer friends are the best. They always make you feel better about yourself when you feel like crap about your writing. I love them. And I love getting on my blog and finding comments from all of you. It makes me so happy.

5. I have like a million dessert recipes on Pinterest that I'm trying to decide what to make this weekend. You know, to just take a bite of and then give it away to someone else... I'm such a liar. I'll eat the whole thing. Anyway, help me pick!

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie. Uh ... yes please!

Cinnamon Roll Cake. I have no words...


Rolo Cookies. Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my keyboard...


I'd say I have a pretty big dilemma deciding which one of these delectable treats to make! They all look SO good!

Have a great weekend! Oh, and I'm so sorry I haven't been around to blogs much this week or answered a lot of comments. I promise I'm reading them and I'll get back on my feet next week after I kick the crap out of my stupid cold this weekend! :)

Ahhh, my wife is also in the 'Jack' fan club. Her love of Christian Bale has sadly not diminished with time. :-)

Hope you feel better soon!

Rolo cookies!!!!!!!! Then if they're as good as they look share the link to the recipe.

We have the same cold. Brought it home from Utah after the adoption. I'm loosing my voice too but the kids aren't scared. They're excited because they think they can get away with anything.

Abby said...

Oh my gosh... looking at those desserts made me forget the rest of the post! LOL. I vote for pics 1 and 3. And if you want me to taste test some I would be happy to. :)

Hope you are feeling better soon. Echinacea, cookies and sleep.

Michelle Merrill said...

Those desserts look divine! I want all of them. That's awesome that you want to cook when you don't feel well. That's usually the LAST thing I want to do.

Your sister hasn't seen Newsies? Is she human? Haha. Just kidding. Sing it to her! Show her what you've got :)

I love writing friends too. And I've been addicted to watching mindless disney channel movies...every night! Yeah, writing has been a minimal lately. Grr. I need to fix that!

kirstenlopresti said...

I'd go with the cinnamon rolls. Hope you feel better!

Jessica R. Patch said...

All the foods look yummy, why pick? :)

We love Criminal Minds at our house, too!

Have a great weekend!

Patti said...

I have to make a dessert tonight for a church function and those rolo cookies look amazing.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Read my books; lose ten pounds! said...

yum

Ruth Josse said...

Rolo cookies. Definitely.

Oh, Newsies! I need to find that and make my kids watch it. I'm sure they'll love it as much as I do. How could they not?

Open the gates and seize the day! Don' be afraid and don't delay. Nothing can break us. No one can make us. Give our rights away. Arise and seize the day!

So inspirational. Feel better, Chantele!

Angie Cothran said...

I've introduced my boys to Newsies and they are 75% impressed 23% embarrassed 2% horrified. But that doesn't keep them from singing "I'm the King of New York" around the house.

I vote Rolo Cookies. They are a favorite at my house. But in my recipe the dough is chocolate.

Jenny S. Morris said...

My vote is for #1. They look so yummy. Hope you feel better!

E.R. King said...

My vote is ROLO COOKIES!

Feel better soon! : )

Melanie Jacobson said...

Holy crap. The cheesecake cookies for sure.

Stephanie Black said...

Oh wow oh wow the tastiness of it all! They all look delicious. Talk about a decision where it's impossible to go wrong!

Sarah Pearson said...

Yay for writing friends!

And I say make all three, one for Friday, one for Saturday and one for Sunday :-)

Get well soon x

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Chocolate chip cheesecake cookies? Um, yes please.

Feel better soon!

Angie said...

Those pictures are making me soooo hungry! Go for the rolo cookies. They look delish. They all look delish. I hope you get feeling better soon. Give your voice a rest. Trust me. I <3 Newsies too. Have fun!

Kristin Baker Przybyla said...

Do all three of those desserts on consecutive weekends, then post reviews (and recipes)! But if I had to vote, mine would be for the chocolate chip cheesecake cookie. *drool* Hope you get to feeling better soon! Sounds like you have a doozy.

Maggie said...

No I'm craving sugar! After you have your "one bite" send the rest my way. hahaha

Jessie Humphries said...

Holy Rolos! I've never seen that before. Get well soon:)

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

MMMmmmm, you've got me licking my lips. They all look good to me. I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong.

Here are my Christian Bale confessions http://writingwithshelly.blogspot.com/2011/08/it-dont-mean-thing.html

I have THE EXACT cold! Misery isn't it :( It's been hanging around for too long in my book and I'm about to karate chop it outta town!

Shallee said...

ROLO COOKIES all the way. :)

I hope Spot Conlin helps get you over your cold. I had the biggest crush on him as a kid too!

Meredith said...

I haven't seen Newsies in forever! I barely remember anything about it. Except the hats. Have to watch it again now. And please make all three of those and tell us which one's the best--they all look incredible!

Katy said...
