SNICKER DOODLES 
These delicious cinnamon sugar coated cookies are great for the fall as the weather starts to cool the cinnamon preparing you for the upcoming holidays.
Ingredients:
2 eggs
3/4 cups butter
1/4 vegetable shortening
3 cups Flour
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
Cream together all ingredients except for the flour. Once everything is smoothly blended add the flour a single cup at a time mixing each cup in fully before adding the next one. Divide your dough in half, wrap it in cling wrap and place in the fridge for an hour.
( the below can be replaced by pre-made cinnamon sugar ) 
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons Sugar 
Mix together the Cinnamon and Sugar with a fork making sure it is thoroughly mixed  or you can purchase it already made.
Take a square Tupperware with a lid  and put in your cinnamon sugar 
Take out your dough as it should no longer be sticky and can be easily handled. Roll dough into 1in balls placing them in the Tupperware ( as many can fit without squishing) cover with lid, and shake the container till the dough balls are covered in the sugar mixture. Place the coated dough balls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven at 375 degrees for 9 minutes.
Pull out cookies and place them on a rack to cool. Enjoy

Anonymous asked: Hey, I just experienced the most embarrassing moment of my life (let's just say a bit of toilet paper got a bit too friendly with my shoe... for 5 hours... in a not-so-private place). Anyway, I was wondering if you (and a few of my other favorite bloggers, so you're not alone) were brave enough to share your own most embarrassing moment(s) to help me get over it.

Ok. So for a long time, I was a regular staff member for Anime St Louis because I’m friends with a ton of the staff there. Usually, I just sorta’ ran around and did whatever needed to be done, but a few years ago, I was plopped into the green room where the con guests would wander in, eat some food, watch some tellie and hang around in their down time. 

It was late morning, like 10:30ish, and I was making pancakes for everyone. And by everyone, I mean nobody was in there so I was just making a metric ton of pancakes while a few friends hung around. So after like my 10th pancake, my favoritest most idolized guest at the con came in. He was Doug Walker, otherwise known as the Nostalgia Critic. I’ve spent many a night before then in front of my computer with my friends laughing to the point of crying at this guy’s rendition of some of my fondest childhood movies. So of course I’m like “asdfghjkg hiiiii…” and all blushy and starstruck when he comes in.

He’s very nice through my silliness, and grabs a plate and a bunch of pancakes and sits down, AND invites me to sit down by him and a few of my friends. I walk over and sit down, still all quiet and shy and bluh bluh bluh. We start talking about movies and this was just around the time when The Dark Knight came out, and I had the PERFECT quote in mind for the conversation from it.

Now, we were talking about how rough something was going for somebody and how bummed out they were about it, so I was like “OOH HARVEY DENT SAID THIS REALLY AWESOME THING ABOUT HOPE AND I’LL QUOTE IT AND SEEM COOL AND HIP AND I’LL BE ALL COOL IN FRONT OF DOUG WALKER AND OH MY GOSH ASDFGHJKL!!!!!!NJ:JBBJKL”

The actual quote: “The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.” *audience swoon*

What I ended up saying: “WELL YOU KNOW AS HARVEY DENT SAID… The dawn is darkest… just before the sun… rises in the night… because the sun… is dark…?”

which was immediately followed by literally the most uncomfortable silence in my life. And the silence was followed by literally the most hysterical laughter I’ve ever heard in my life.


So that’s my moment HALLALUJAH I’M A DUMB FANGIRL WOOo YEAH!

((Which means if you’re a super popular brony artist or actor or something I’ll be really quiet and shy around you too probably because I’m just an introverted fangirl ok is tHAT FINE WITH YOU FIGHT ME))
