Chocolate Chip Muffins!

Today was a pretty busy day! Actually, I take that back. This AFTERNOON was very busy!  I did school this morning, read, and did some bloggy stuff {my awesome new blog template from LeeLou Blogs. You likey? Me likey!} Then we went grocery shopping, came home and did tons of cleaning for company tonight {my awesome bible-quizing team is coming!}, I baked these delish muffins, and I am very surprised I am able to post this! I still have a few things to do though... ^-^ 

I've been getting a little "stressy" lately with all my devos that need to be done for church and youth group, my bible quizzing {me and my wonderfullest team memorize chapters from the bible and we have quizzes every first Saturday of the month! I'm a "rookie" and my first quiz is on Saturday! I AM. SO. SCARED. (;}, other things that would take much toooooo long to explain, school, and everything else in life, it adds up. But I know I can't complain. Some people I know have truckloads more than I do, and I am grateful for it. ...But still(; haha 

However, I have still been able to find time for my creativeness. I did those Red Velvet Cake Balls last week, and I made an awesome craft this last weekend {or something...} I will try to post soon. I tried a couple days ago, and for some reason I couldn't find the pictures I needed. :P

Now, I am sitting in my kitchen family-less {i love my family, but it's fun to have some alone time sometimes.. (: }, blasting my music from my "Songs that make me happy(:" playlist on my iPod {currently playing JUSTIN BIEBER! Yes, Justin Bieber makes me happy! }, with a sweet breeze blowing in through the windows, blogging, and muffins baking in the oven. I THINK YES! (; 

Side Notes:
-Forgot to put the sugar crumbly stuff on the first batch before I put it in the oven, so I just put some on when they came out. OOPS! ;)
-Forgot to put the salt in it. But who wants salty muffins?.. Not me. (; ahhhh... 
- The sugar stuff made kinda a lot unless you wanted to fill half the muffin cup with it. Soooo... You could probably use a little less if you wanted to.
-I had EXACTLY 1/3 c. oil left. FUNNY!
- I searched in the refrigerator for the muffin cups... Don't think I'll find them in there!

So enough with the chatty-chat-chat. On with the MUFFINS! haha(; 

I hope you enjoy this recipe from allrecipes.com

2 c. AP flour
1/2 c. white sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

3 tbsp. white sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar

1. Heat oven to 400 ºF. Grease bottoms only of 12 muffin cups or line with baking cups. 
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 c. sugar, baking powder, chocolate chips, and salt; mix well. In a small bowl, combine milk, oil, and egg; blend well. Add dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened {batter will be lumpy.}
3. Fill cups 2/3 full, Sprinkle tops of muffins before baking with a combination of 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons brown sugar.
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 1 minute before removing from pan. Serve warm.

Ok- So I have no idea what in the world is wrong with my computer {or blogger!}, but I can't find my pictures when I try to upload them! When I go into iPhoto, they're there, but when I try to upload them for blog, they're not. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?! It happened a couple days ago too when I was trying to upload pictures for my awesome craft... Hmmmmm.... Well I will post pictures whenever I find what in the world is going on. :P

Thanks for reading, and I am super-duper sorry for my first ever pictureless blog! URGGG! :P
