So good. I could have eaten another bowl but I tried to behave myself. Instead I ate a Chewy Chocolate Chip Heath Bar Cookie. :)

I took the kids to school and now I’m at Starbucks waiting on an appointment. My mom is coming to town today to stay with my daughter while we go to the Super Bowl. Don’t feel bad for my daughter. She despises football. :)

Will you be watching the Super Bowl? Making anything special for it?
