Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Why do they make it so hard for you to change your name? Although, now thinking about it, I guess it’s a good thing that they make you jump through hoops to change your name so you don’t have those imposters & crazies, but when you’re a legit person trying to change your name – it’s the most frustrating thing! I mean, I would LOVE to work for the Social Security Administration. Working hours of 9am-3pm & only 9am-12pm on Wednesdays? Um, where can I sign up?!

It was really nice to have a long weekend this past weekend. I love starting the week on a Tuesday. It just makes the week fly by that much faster. Don’t you think? Since it was Memorial Day weekend, Jason and I figured there’d be a lot of decent furniture sales going on so we finally accomplished one of our “after the wedding” goals. We bought our king bed!! Just thinking about it makes me squeal with utter joy & excitement. We’ve been sleeping on a full bed ever since we moved in together. Did you just make a face? Yeah, I’m sure you did. Everyone does when we tell them. They’re just in shock at how we can even sleep like that. Really, we’re so used to it. We’re so used to it that we barely even touch at night. There’s always a perfect “section” for him and I in bed. We even wake up in the mornings still separate. Yeah, it’s kinda crazy. Every time we go on vacation and get a king bed at the hotel, we’re seriously in heaven – and then we come home to a full size bed and it’s sad. I honestly cannot wait to just spread out all I want and wave to Jason on the other side of the bed, haha! The bed is unfortunately backordered, though, and although the mattress isn’t, we didn’t want them to deliver them separately, so we’re getting them delivered together….July 8th :( hopefully it flies by fast. I cannot wait to jump in that ginormous bed!
