THAT’S RIGHT, FORGET DIAMONDS. THESE ARE WHAT A GIRL REALLY NEEDS!
One of my best girlfriends hipped me to this phrase: Adulting. The process with which we are supposed to do exactly what is expected of us. Do the work we need to do. Follow up on our responsibilities. Talk to people we’d rather not associate with because it is the ‘mature’ thing to do. Laundry. Dishes. Picking up prescriptions. Going to appointments.
So, when the weekend came, I decided to have an intentionally Anti-Adult staycation in my own home. The plan? Watch whatever movies I want, stay in my pajamas, read some books, and surround myself with all the comfort foods I could possibly want. I wanted to travel back to a time when I was able to shut out the world, find time to do whatever I want, and eat whatever I want.
In other words: I wanted to be in high school again.
So, I asked myself, “What would 16 year old me want to eat during my Anti-Adulting weekend?” Cookie Dough of course! But not just any kind of cookie dough, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. Basically put together a bunch of the different types of sugary treats I devoured as a kid! Anyway, let’s go to the next page (click the Next button below) to see how we put this childhood dream together.
