By the time you read this I am probably recovering from a cookie coma. Yes, you read that right… a cookie coma!
Friday was a pretty quiet night. It was also very exhausting. Another snow storm plowed through the city and I left school early so I could make it home and not sit through another two hour commute home like I did one day December. After I got home I put on my lazy clothes (comfy work out pants and a comfy t-shirt) and veged on the sofa for the rest of the night. I was tired, a tad cold and did not feel like doing much. I must have been exhausted because I don’t remember falling asleep when I finally got in to bed around 11…. I just remember climbing in to bed and then it goes blank from there.
Saturday I ventured to the grocery store with my sister. Before we headed to the grocery store I swung in to Michael’s to buy bags for my cookies. I scored big on this trip. My sister found Valentine bags on sale for $1.29 and I found Valentine cards for $1.29 that I’m sending to my friends. Shopping at the grocery store was chaotic; spending 30 minutes in the check-out line and my back was killing me from standing that long.
Sunday was cookie day! Before cookies I had to finish a class assignment and study for a test, but I couldn’t stop thinking about the cookie exchange. I love cookies. Cookie Monster and me could be BFF’s! I made biscotti, but I ran in to one problem – they didn’t turn out biscotti-esque. They were bite sized biscotti and I don’t think they were as hard as they should have been. I’ve made this exact recipe twice before, but this time… something went wrong.
The cookie haul.
As soon as I came home I devoured a few. A few = 6. My family sampled a few as well. The cookies I’ve had so far are really, really good. A talented bunch they are. I cannot say no to cookies. Cannot. Say. No.
Now it’s Monday and I’m relaxing after a long day at school. I had a great chiropractic session afterwards and well… I definitely needed it. I feel so great! Tomorrow is the grad photo session. So excited!
