Cobblestone Ice Cream

So, New Year’s resolutions. I usually don’t make them. It’s not that I’m against making any, it’s just that I hardly ever follow through with them. Heck, I’ve been meaning to clean out my closet for nearly two years now and that still hasn’t happened. I blame cat videos.

But this year. This year will be different. This year I’m going to make resolutions and do my best to stick to them.

For 2013 I will:

    1. Be an awesome wife. This sounds like it’d be super easy to do, but it’s actually harder than you think.
    2. Be a kick-ass mom. Same sentiment as above.
    3. Create/bake/learn/write tons of shiny stuff. I really want to learn to make macarons and speak French.
    4. Avoid comparing myself to others. Who else wants to join me on this one? It’ll be so good. Trust me.
    5. Enjoy all the little things that make life amazing. Because you just can’t do this often enough.

How about you? Did you make any resolutions for 2013?

  3. Stir in heavy cream, milk, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour mixture into bowl of an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. About 2-3 minutes before ice cream is done churning, add cookie pieces and pecans.

    • I totally agree. I think we need to come up with some kind of mantra for no.4. Like, ummm… Sparkles, sprinkles, ice cream & pie. I am awesome, that ain’t no lie… Hmmm… Perhaps we need some more time to think one up. 🙂

What's up, Buttercup?
