C is for Colorado

Spent the afternoon with the Colorado logo.  Pac Man’s cousin.  Eating up our plentiful sunshine!

St Patrick’s Day 2017

Does life ever get the best of you and you get from point A to point B just in time? That was my March and most of April.  Busy is not bad, just lamenting that there are only 24 hours in the day (or that I could be a bit more efficient?).  Back to prioritizing blog posts…

The cookie platter from St Patrick’s Day showcased some delightful stencils from the ever amazing Killer Zebras.

Southwestern Christmas

The annual girlfriends Christmas party had a southwestern food theme this year.  I asked the hostess if she wanted Christmas or southwestern themed cookies.  Both? she inquired.  Why, yes, we can.

Who doesn’t think of cow skulls with festive garland when Christmas comes to mind? I mean, really…SW Xmas 1.jpg

NYC to Denver

At one time, they all lived in the same apartment building in the Big Apple. Now the family that has since moved to Denver and wants to entice the other families to do the same. Below is the “cookie postcard” illustrating what Denver has to offer (some adult content, they wanted to include a few of the high life…).

GOURDgeous

Let’s talk about mistakes. I work incredibly hard not to make them. But I did. In my haste (4 different sets were on our dining room table that day) to get a friend her birthday cookies on time, I totally misspelled a play on words.  No pun pride that day.  Luckily, it was a dear friend and I gave them to her anyway.  She said she didn’t even notice (that’s how good a friend she is).  Despite my spelling fail, the gourds in the set turned out beautifully and the pun was perfect for the season.  And, here’s the most important part, the cookies are always tasty.

Bottom line, I just want to pass along a hug to those of you who like things just so, who strive for perfection.  It’s frustrating when things don’t go according to plan but mostly it’s US that care so deeply about perceived imperfection.  Others, not so much.  Here’s to continuing on. May the rest your day still be GOURDeous.

Bye Bye Bye

How can you be incredibly, at the deepest darkest depths, sad and yet excited at the same time? Well, Megan is one of my favorite Zumba instructors (and I AM PICKY about my instructors!); this very same Megan decided to adventure in Spain! As in a permanent move!!! So excited for her.  So sad for us.  This was the platter I made for her before she left.  Puns included.  As always.  Hope you’re loving life over there, Megan! Miss you!

Friend.Chips

She says to me “I want to give some cookies to a sweet friend. We were acquaintances before but totally bonded one night over our obsession for the phrase ‘fries before guys.’ Our friendship and partying time blossomed after that.” I say to her “so this box of cookies is all about joint experiences and potatoes?” Yep.  Some friend.chips are forever.
