About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

Why I Love...

Girl Scout Cookies.

Girl Scout Cookies are in a league all their own. They cannot even be qualified in a generic "cookie" category; they're too good for that.

Today I have eaten three thin mints and three samoas. The samoas are my favorite, and I'm not even that crazy about coconut.

It used to give me a rash when I was a kid. Weird story.

I bought two boxes of samoas, three boxes of thin mints, and two boxes of tagalongs.

Yes, that's seven boxes. And yes, they were expensive. $28.50 to be exact. I'll just shove that into the "food" budget for the month.

But you know, you have to stock up on those bad boys. You can't buy them online. (I know, crazy, right?) And the Girl Scouts only sell them every so often. And I normally don't know any Girl Scouts. Sadly. Do you know how long it's been since I've had Girl Scout cookies?

At least four years. (Not counting the thin mint DQ blizzard, of course.) I first tried to buy Girl Scout cookies my freshman year of college. One night I had a crazy craving for some samoas. That was when I discovered you can't buy cookies online. What you can do is request a girl scout call you and you can place a cookie order with her.

Well that girl never called me. I was devastated. I've been craving them ever since.

I made up for a little bit of those four long years today when I shoved three thin mints in my mouth in a matter of minutes. It was so worth it.
