ahhhh yes... big word wednesday ;)

it describes my day quite nicely.

as you all know, brownie has been leaking in the trunk.  after all the rain we've been having, she's at it again.  i thought it was the weather stripping, so i took myself to auto zone, bought some, and brought it home.  opened up the package, and it was too short.  awesome.  also add to this, it's not the right kind of weather stripping.  soooo i left my trunk open for a while, mowed the grass, epoxied my siding back to my car (say goodbye to the hot pink duct tape!), and went for a drive.  after driving through a few puddles, checking on the trunk again, i have now come to the conclusion that it has a hole some where b/c the water is coming up through the bottom.  that's super fabulous!

because my morning of grass cutting and car fixing was too manly, i'm currently making cookies.  from scratch.  #winning

i found a recipe for chocolate chip coconut cookies, so we're trying it.  currently, they aren't really spreading out at all, which is a bummer, BUT they taste like summer :)

here's the recipe if you want to try them!

1 cup butter, soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp coconut extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup flaked coconut
2 cups chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and coconut extract. Stir in dry ingredients, then coconut and chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375° for 9-10 minutes or till lightly browned.
-Makes 4 dozen

aside from me baking the first batch a tad long (they took about 5-10 minutes longer, but i was also using a baking stone) and them being crumbly, they're really, really good.
