Notice anything new?
Isn't my new blog design totally sweet?
It's funky & chic & simple... and I wish I could take all the credit for it, but it was the amazingly talented (and sweet!) Sue of As It Seems Designs that created it for me!

It wasn't easy.
Apparently, I was bit "pickier" than I thought I would be.
We must have exchanged at least 100 emails {and I'm not exaggerating!}, but 
Sue was great to work with!  She was patient, professional... 'm so happy we did this together, she's an awesome friend!  I really hope you all love the new look as much as I do.

Also, my new sidebar is kind of amazing!?
There are some newbies to the M2MAR family, and I just want to officially welcome to this space!
You'll learn more about them throughout the month!

Oh! You know what else is sweet... these cookies!! I must have eaten about a dozen of them over the last couple of days!!

1 box of chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup dried cranberries

Mix well, by hand {mixer makes the batter too thick}
Then spoon and "drop" onto cookie sheet

Bake at 350
for 8-10 mins

How easy was that!?

You're welcome.
