My Husband's Birthday Cake- Chocolate Chip cookie dough cake

              My husband's birthday is a few days before Christmas and It's always a fun task for me to take my mind off of Christmas and focus on making my man feel special.  I like to try new things on him too. he doesn't ever give me an idea of what he wants... or helps me at all there, so I just wing it and hope for the best.  I saw this.. on my all time favorite spot... PINTEREST!.. and thought it looked perfect for him.  He LOVES Chocolate Chip cookies, we used to always get DQ blizzards with cookie dough when we had one near us, and it didn't look childish or too complicated.
   The blog I found this recipe on is here.  My husband's review.. "it's good... really good, but too sweet for me." I think i'll keep trying to use the cake recipe, but the cookie dough for this is... kinda not what I expected.  it's gooey rather than solid and it's super sweet.  The frosting was the first ever that I made where you had to cook it. it was fun to try something new, but it was still really sweet. I'm not sure i'll give up on the frosting yet.  I think I just need more birthdays to make cakes for. LOL!!! Uh oh... am I already baby hungry? i'm nuts!!!!

Happy Birthday to the best husband I could ever have and the most wonderful father!!! 

He was home with us for almost 2 full weeks and it was AWESOME! I am exhausted though.  I'm not used to having another body around here often and having constant dishes to clean up and laundry like crazy. Now, however, It feels empty and lonely. I find myself at a loss of what to do. It was so busy while he was here I never had a chance to even blog! that's why you see 5 new posts all of a sudden!! :) Oh how I would love to have him home all the time though. ANYONE want to buy a house???
