Today I’m hosting a cookie exchange party. This is my third annual party! The idea is: you make several dozen (this year I said 4) of one kind of cookie. At the party you go around and help yourself to other people’s cookies. You come with one kind and go home with lots of different kinds of cookies (or bars, or candy, or whatever.) It’s a lot of fun, in my opinion. (That would be the opinion of someone who both enjoys making and eating cookies!)
And here are some pictures from the first party!
The cookies I chose to make this year were QUITE a challenge. I’ll tell you more about them later, but they turned out well (finally!) after hours of work.
We’ve been frantically cleaning the past two days and I’ve been preparing food. Now I’m hoping to go to the gym to get a quick run in (or outside, it’s been raining off and on and I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for.) Then it’ll be cookie time!
Tomorrow: Five weeks until our wedding! Where did the time go?? Three (or so) more weeks of work until Christmas, New Year’s, Wedding, and then the honeymoon. I’d be more excited if I weren’t so stressed…
Don’t get me wrong, I AM excited. There’s just a ton to do. I have a list I’m following but I keep worrying, what if we forget something really important? I guess, then we get over it. Oh well?!
