Today, I went to the girly doctor. I’ll reserve comments on that for later in this post. Discomfort aside, I was knocked flat on my backside when I stepped on the scale and saw the numbers 1, 8,7, and 9 show up in that order. Essentially 187.9 lbs of Natasha exists and more Natasha, in this case, is NOT good. However, that Natasha is going to have to wait just ONE MORE DAY as we enter into #HousefulOfCookies season.
I bet you thought this was going to be an inspirational post about making New Year’s Resolutions a full month before needing to, and whatnot. It’s not. But it is inspirational. I want to inspire you to bake some cookies this season, and to bake something other than chocolate chip (good) or gingerbread (jury’s still out) or eggnog cookies. They are great to have as a backup, but why not shake it up a bit? Yes, it’s time for the #HousefulOfCookies blog hop!
Last year, I made cranberry white chocolate chip cookies, and tomorrow, I’m kicking off the blog hop with…you’ll just have to see.
Seriously though, after I bake all of these recipes, I’ll do better. Maybe. Quite honestly, I will, but I’m attempting to forget the fact that I’m nearing the heaviest that I’ve been since the birth of my firstborn child. That squishy baby took me up to 208. I can’t do that again, but, cookies.
