Hello friends! How has your week been coming along?
Mine has been filled with visits to various SPCA locations because we are looking to adopt a new furry friend! We already have a guinea pig at home but lil’ bun has been wanting a rabbit for years now and being that her sweet 16 is coming up, she’s finally allowed to choose one to bring home. There are so many to choose from and while we want to take them all home…we need to choose one that’s the right fit.
Do any of you own rabbits? What are your tips for best rabbit care? We want to make sure we do it right because it’s been years since we owned one.
To go along with her week of birthday celebration, we decided to make funfetti cookies because you can’t go wrong with them when it comes to birthdays. Now typically we enjoy our chewy cookies but lil’ bun wanted soft ones this time around so we decided to make the dough a little differently than we normally would.

And then to top the dough off right, we decided to use rainbow chocolate pearls and dark chocolate chunks to make it all the more wonderful and delicious to eat.
What are your favorite birthday treats or meals? Mine has got to be a moist and fragrant chocolate banana cake. Oh how I dream of having a slice of that right now!
