{Put on your fat pants, folks, I’m on a cookie dough kick.}

So the other morning I woke up to the most wonderful surprise!  I went to check my email while I was still laying in bed (sick, I know), and I saw all these notifications that all these blogging friends had linked to me.  Like TONS.

And that’s when I realized that they had thrown me a virtual baby shower!!

It was damn near the sweetest thing ever.  If you aren’t a blogger, this may seem really really weird.  Lots of women throwing me a “virtual” shower, but if you are a blogger, you totally get it.  This is such a weird way to make a living, and it is absolutely the most wonderful thing to have blogging friends who get it, who you can talk to about all the chaos that it brings, who give you advice at the drop of a dime, who support you when you want to throw in the towel, and who laugh with you when the really really odd happens.

It was totally overwhelming sitting and reading through all of their blog posts one by one.  They had the most amazingly nice things to say about me.  And some have even met me in person!  And they still had nice things to say about me!

This pregnancy has not been easy (understatement of the decade).  Besides the normal aches and pains that come with a pregnancy, all the exhaustion that comes with a fourth pregnancy and chasing around two other kiddos, all the stress of working while pregnant . . . I’ve had the added extra stress of going through this thing, again, that has left me so heartbroken in the past.

This week was particularly hard.  I hit 36 weeks on Sunday.  And that is the same week when we learned that something was wrong with Elliot.  So the PTSD is extra strong this week.  And to have this shower, to feel my friends cheering me towards the finish line and rallying behind me . . . . it was just amazing.  At the bottom of this post, you can see links to all their wonderful posts.

They all made such cute and delicious treats, that it seemed fitting to share this recipe with you today.  It’s been running around in my brain for a while, and though I knew I wanted the crust to be made from Cookie Dough Oreos, it wasn’t until I read Lindsay’s post that I realized how easy I could make it on myself!  Two Oreos in the bottom of the mason jar, a little smashing with the end of an ice cream scooper and done!  WIN!  If you can’t find Cookie Dough Oreos, just use some regular Oreos or some graham cracker crumbs.

    Oh my goodness, Lisa! These are amazing! And they also make me sad that I no longer have any Cookie Dough Oreos left. :( I had to have a friend from out of state send me some in the mail because we never got them here in the stores. Boo. And shockingly, we already ate both packs of them, lol. ;)

    I was so honored to be a part of this virtual baby shower for you. <3 I wish nothing but happiness & joy with your new little girl soon.

    I love that you have so many friends in the blogging community that would throw you a virtual baby shower. Congratulations and I hope all goes smoothly for you. You will be in my prayers. This recipe looks so easy and sounds delicious – I know that my grandkids would have no problem eating it right up – good thing for the small jars. Thanks for sharing on Wake Up Wednesdays.
