So in marriage, one of the things we have to learn to do is share. Problem is, sometimes sharing isn’t easy. And sometimes sharing means someone else loses – as in loses something. As is loses the nail clippers that you both share. And sometimes that seems to happen over and over and over.
When that happens, there’s only one thing to do.
Not share any longer. ?
After going through countless nail clippers, we finally argued (jokingly) the other day about who keeps losing them. And of course we blame each other. And of course I’m right. I always put them back where they are supposed to go.
But he thinks the same thing of himself. He thinks it’s all my fault.
So when he came home the other day and saw two new nail clippers on the kitchen counter, he immediately started to tell me that one would be for me and one for him – as if that wasn’t why I’d gotten two to begin with.
And I one up-ed him. I was prepared with masking tape for us to label ours with our names so that there could be no confusion about whose is whose. Then time would tell who loses the clippers. Oh yes.
We then ran off to hide our clippers in different spots in the house where the other person can’t find them. That way, we can determine who is the one responsible for losing them by seeing who loses theirs first. It’s very scientific.
Of course I’m sure he’d rather grow claws than have to come and get my nail clippers and admit that he lost the battle! It may take some time, but I am sure that some day soon I will report my victory. ?
We gotta have a little fun, you know?
Like this cake – this cake is super fun! I mean, look at all those sprinkles! Don’t they just scream fun and happy?
I loved the peanut butter version of this cake so much, I decided to make a funfetti version. I have a bit of a funfetti addiction, so it was only natural that it would happen.
This cake is fairly simple to put together. The only baking required is for the brownies. I used a from scratch brownie, but you could definitely use a box mix if you prefer. You’d probably need two boxes to get enough batter for 3 brownies.
The brownies are filled with layers of the best cookie dough ever – cake batter! I used my beloved Funfetti Cake Mix, but you could use a white or yellow make mix too. The cookie dough is eggless, so no need to worry about baking. Just mix everything together!
They layers are held together with chocolate ganache and it makes a wonderful, rich combo!
I finished the cake off with more ganache on top, some chocolate icing and sprinkles. I even pressed sprinkles into the sides of the cookie dough layer. Is there such a thing as too many sprinkles? No? Ok, good. Because they are an early celebration of the day I win the toe nail clipper battle. ?
