I tell myself frequently that I am a person who makes good out of a rough situation. I don't want to say having to spend 5 days in Greeley is a rough situation but when I have only a few things moved in, no wifi (which, come on, we all know is dire to life..) it gets boring!!! Grayson and I ventured up to my new apartment for a few days this past week, I had a few shifts to help with at work and he had really nothing better to do so we thought we could turn it into a mini vacation.
Without much internet connection and a dead college campus right outside we got bored pretty quick, but Grayson (the perfect boyfriend he is) came up with ways to keep ourselves entertained. While watching Cutthroat Kitchen one afternoon (while i napped...) he realized we absolutely had to have a bake off. He decided we had just a few dollars and a few minutes in the grocery store to pick out our items to create the perfect cookies.
I thought of course that peanut butter cookies would be super easy, just some PB and butter and stuff idk I'm not a baker.. Grayson chose chocolate chip caramel cookies, not really sure where that came from but he was bound to make an interesting choice. He also chose to not use a recipe, just throw all the ingredients together using his incredible measuring brain to create perfect cookies, sounds like a good idea right? I myself had a recipe. We had the added trouble of not having any oven mitts, mixing bowls or utensils, or even measuring cups... it was interesting to say the least
TO MY SURPRISE. Graysons cookies were insanely better than mine, they might be killing me from the inside out right now because of how much baking powder he added but they were absolutely better than my flat oily peanut butter goo things ugh. I hate when he wins.
I am so very thankful for Grayson and all the happy moments he brings into my life, grateful everyday that I have this very tall human to give me a hug when I am sad - I love him lots and lots
