Everyone remember 8 days of cookies?
With what seemed like thousands of cookies baked, zero freezer and storage space for the cookies, and just endless amounts of dough, 8 days of cookies is OVER. My cookie baking days are on hold for quite some time. At least until someone pays me to make a batch for them
8 days of cookies prevented me from posting anything other than cookies for 8 days straight because I was so exhausted from scooping endless dough balls. Don’t laugh. It happened. However, not all my time was spent baking cookies. Here is a look at the past two weeks of my life:
My new roommate [cousin] moved in and I welcomed her by making one of her favorites:
Shrimp & Cheesy Grits [I will post the recipe soon]
The next day I made my other roommate get in the holiday spirit and she pouted on the couch:
Or is she sleeping?
That afternoon I took my cousin to lunch at one of our favorite places: Postino Wine Cafe
Best bruschetta EVER. Great salads. Great wine. Great EVERYTHING.
Later that night we went to O.H.S.O:
My roommate loves a great beer but we couldn’t let her tag along.
She threw a temper tantrum:
and pouted again:
The next day was a BIG day. Bears vs Cardinals:
18th row on the 50 yard line?!!? Thanks mom and dad

BEARS WON! Could not have had a better day!
Look who was waiting for me when I got home:
Look at that face!! KILLS ME!
Christmas came and went quickly. We have a tradition: Out to dinner Christmas Eve and go back to my parents and open presents, then Christmas day I cook at my house. It was such a great day with such great people.
Me and my roommate Christmas morning. Hadn’t even left my bed yet:
My roommate received a bunny for Christmas and hasn’t left it’s side yet:
Unfortunately, my Christmas joy didn’t last. I was sick for a week and just felt awful!
Lots of miso soup and udon noodles with a side of hot water with lemon and honey. No air through the nose = complete loss of taste. Bleh.
Luckily, I am better now, and just in time to have enjoyed such a great first of the year!
Today I woke up and enjoyed toast with sunflower seed butter and apricot jam.
All before heading off to a much needed massage at Firesky Resort and Spa:
After my massage I was a complete limp noodle. Worthless. It took me a decent hour to get the motivation to work my own legs into cleaning around the house.
I took my Christmas decorations down which always makes me so sad. To me, taking down Christmas decorations means that 3,000 degree heat is just around the corned
I then went into a vacuuming frenzy because I was beyond excited over my new vacuum that I received for Christmas. Lets just say vacuums do not get along with the combination of my roommate and I’s hair.
You can gag now.
That is all for today! See, I am capable of other things besides baking cookies! Haha.
