M&M Sugar Cookie Bars

Cute and Tasty

I apologize for disappearing on you. I let life get in the way of blogging and I must say that life has been pretty good.  Since I last blogged, we went on a family vacation to the beach, one of my best friends got married, we went to Washington, DC where I hosted a Bridal Shower for another of my best friends, then went to Las Vegas for her bachelorette party, and my sweet little boy turned one.  It has been quite an eventful few months and I have enjoyed every moment.  I have not been baking much either, but I did make these tasty cookies and some delicious cupcakes for Noble's first birthday party.  My sister will really appreciate that I am finally posting these because she LOVED them, so this is for you Jos.
