Yesterday started the official one month countdown until my wedding! We nailed down the rehearsal dinner, and I dropped off my dress, for hopefully, its final alterations. Then we had a beer to celebrate. All that is left are details..the big things are planned! Hallelujah! Planning this wedding has been a complete blast, but wowsers does it suck up ALL my time now! I wouldn’t change it for a thing..planning a wedding only happens once and I’m enjoying every minute of it, and drinking lots of champagne!
A few weeks ago, maybe a month ago now, my dad fell out of a tree, slash, off a ladder. He got pretty hurt, breaking his collar bone, wrist, and foot, all on his dominant side. It put him out of work, since he does physical labor, and it was an adjustment for my mom. Hes healing slowly, and crutches are in use. Hopefully he’ll still be able to walk down the aisle with me!
So when he first fell, he was laid up on the couch for a couple of weeks. Id stop by in the mornings to make him breakfast while my mom was at work sometimes. But what he really kept asking me for were his favorite cookies; Crispy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. See, unlike me, hes not a huge fan of soft, chewy cookies. Crazy, I know! But hes a lover of crispy, crunchy cookies, and oatmeal raisin are his all time fav! I figured this request was the least I could do!
I set out to find the prefect crunchy cookie recipe, and I succeeded. He was over the moon with these babies! He hid them from everyone, and told me numerous times that he hoped I wrote down this recipe! (But of course!) Even I, the soft, chewy, cookie lover, was a fan of these crunchy crispy cookies! I found myself stealing little pieces right out of his hands!
These cookies may have been for my dad, but I can’t wait to switch up the fillings for some more crispy, crunchy goodness!
