So I think I have the best Choc. Chip recipe. I will get it to you. It is the Mrs. Fields recipe and oh so yummy. I even figured out how to make it ww friendly.

Britt Wright said...

Awesome! I would love that Choc Chip recipe. I'm all about WW friendly recipes that taste good.

Britt, you are so cute. There seems to be an awful lot of talk of Disney Land. It is a place where dreams come true! Oh, and 'Dude' is so you. And I love your running man. It totally defines the goofball that you are.

Sorry I didn't call you today - I left my phone in Utah, and it only came this evening. I'll call you tomorrow.
