Friday Favorites!

Favorite New Recipe:
Last week I made a new SWEET recipe to share with our friends the Richey's on Thursday night. I actually combined 2 recipes and created something kind of new (to me) - cake batter cookie sandwiches! If you've never made cake batter cookies, you need to try! They are SO easy and SO yummy (and SO not healthy...). I got the cookie recipe from here and the frosting recipe for the middle of the sandwich from here. AND I took pictures this time! (I'm not a food blogger, don't judge my pictures! :)
Lainey was the sweetest little helper.
Finished products!

Favorite Momma Moment:
This will, guaranteed, be the CUTEST 14 seconds of your day...

Favorite Verse:
After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. [acts 1:3-9]
I just CANNOT wrap my mind around what this must have been like for the apostles. Jesus died on the cross. He rose from the dead and appeared to them over a period of 40 DAYS! Then he promises them the Holy Spirit and gives them their charge: BE MY WITNESSES. And then he was gone. Mind blown.
