Birthday and a cupcake Please!

We have celebrated 2 birthdays this month already! My hubs and my Dad's. We did not do anything to fancy. We had sometime with family at dinner and celebrate another day together. They are two wonderful people in my life.

To my husband!
You are a Man among men. My life would not be where it is today without you. I am who am because you were brought into my life. I thank God every morning that I get to wake up and spend another day with you. I can't image being married to anyone else. You are a wonderful husband and unbelievable father to Cole. We are so blessed to spend another year with you! We love you Tyler!

To my Dad!
Thank you for loving me everyday! I have grown up to be the woman I am because of all the amazing things you have taught me. I look up to the relationship you have with mom and hope that Cole can say the same about me one day. You have been my shoulder to cry on and my friend but most importantly you have always been my loving dad! I love you Daddy!

Now for the CAKE!
A boy in my class celebrated his birthday this week as well and his mom brought these amazing cupcakes to school. I am very eager to try them! SO here the recipe!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs


  1. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and sea salt; set aside. Beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and the vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Form the dough into tablespoon-sized balls; place onto a baking sheet, and freeze until solid, about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  3. Beat 3 eggs in a large bowl with an electric mixer to break up. Add the cake mix, water, and canola oil; continue beating for 2 minutes on medium speed. Spoon into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each 2/3 full. Place a frozen cookie dough ball on the top center of each cupcake.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the cake portion of the cupcake (not the cookie dough ball) comes clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
