It's a Girl! + Easy Lemon Cookies

I didn't want to at first because I thought it would be a bit much since I'll have a baby shower next month, but enough of my friends and family and A too really wanted it so I ended up having a small gender reveal party with some of my closest friends and family earlier this month and I'm really glad I did. :)

I had the envelope in my possession for a good two weeks but luckily didn't feel any urge to try to look inside. When the day finally came and we cut into the cake, I was so anxious!

It's a girl! I didn't have much of a preference but I am so happy to have a little girl because there's so much we'll be able to do together and so much clothes and accessories I can share! :)

The biggest hit on the dessert table were the lemon cookies, and they're so quick and easy to make! Here's the recipe:

1 package lemon cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon extract (or substitute lemon juice)
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, and lemon extract until well blended.
3. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into a bowl of confectioners' sugar.
4. Roll them around until they're lightly covered.
5. Once sugared, put them on an ungreased baking sheet.
6. Bake for 6-9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the inside chewy.

Yields 36.

Leaving you with the quote of the day, "You learn the value of hard work by working hard."
