Y’all, I have nothing for you today. Nothing.

I had a crummy day at work yesterday that left me emotionally drained all evening. Ever have those days? I literally felt like I had a weight on my back. And of course, being a woman, I couldn’t just drop that weight when I walked in the door. It stayed with me the majority of the night.

Tonight there is a Girl’s Night Out event at my church. My blog friend, Darla, will be speaking. (Hey Darla!) I may or may not have had something to do with that. Our church is always looking for good speakers and I knew Darla had a special Christmas message, so I did my magic help-my-bloggity-buds-out dance and got her booked. I’m excited to see her! I haven’t seen her since we met when PW came to town and we were all so nervous we almost fainted.

I’m also excited because there will be desserts. There is nothing a stressed out woman needs more than desserts. (Except for maybe a massage or a hot bath or maybe some brown boots to go with her skinny jeans so she doesn’t always have to wear her black boots.) (Even though there is nothing wrong with her black boots. They are seriously cute.) (It’s just that sometimes a girl needs options. Am I right?)

I was asked to contribute a dessert. Probably because I like to cook. And also because I never say no to things. Oh and also because my mom was in charge of the event and she told me to make a dessert or else Santa wouldn’t be coming this year. So I agreed because I think that Santa may have an elf working on a pair of size 10 brown boots at this very minute. Last night I made Picky Palate’s brownie covered Oreos. Google it, I don’t feel like posting a link. (If you aren’t following Picky Palate, I recommend that you do so immediately. She posts some pretty tasty recipes.) I made one batch with fudge Oreos, which I totally didn’t know existed. And one batch with the mint Oreos. I give them two enthusiastic thumbs up, fine holiday fun. (If you can name that movie, we can be best friends.)

(What’s up with my usage of parentheses today??)

So anyways, my evening was full of moping and baking and cuddling my baby boy. I was in no mood to develop a post.

So you’re left with this. And you are now out 4 minutes of your time and maybe a few brain cells. I do not apologize, I have never claimed to be a stimulating blogger.

Thank you and good bye.
