Today was a pretty exciting day. Despite having to wake up super early to
finish start a paper due this morning, I was able to finish off the day pretty nicely.
Why, you ask, was today so exciting that I have attempted to compare it to the most exciting holiday of the year? Here’s a start…
That’s right, my friends! I received my FIVE boxes of
crack Girl Scout Cookies today! I realize five boxes may seem a bit extreme for a two-person household, but all I had was a $20 so for $4 a box I figured it was easier to just get five of them.
Okay, you caught me. That was the lie I told myself to excuse it, but really I just love cookies. My husband may or may not have nicknamed me the cookie monster (shame face). And no, I am not really embarrassed to admit that.
We also took bets on how long these boxes would last. I give them less than a week, but we do also have half a chocolate cake on the counter so that may extend their lifetime. Although, I tried to make Eric wait until we finished the cake to open the cookies, but that did not last more than 5 minutes after he got home from work. And he calls me the cookie monster…
Anyway, I know Girl Scout cookies is pretty exciting, but not enough to make today February Christmas. BUT, when I got back from the grocery store this afternoon I had this waiting at my door:
While this may appear to unsuspecting eyes to be a boring black box outside of a boring brown door with boring brown walls, it is in fact, my friends, something much more exciting! It was a package I have been waiting for!
Inside the black packaging was this:
Even more exciting is the fact that they’re a new color this time–GREEN!
I am super excited about these! I have been putting off buying new shoes for WAY too long because I hate paying over $100 a pair (and I go through them way too quickly). But my knees were starting to hurt on long sidewalk runs and that’s usually a sign that my shoes are starting to bite the dust.
After much internet browsing, I found my shoes on closeout for over 50% off and free shipping if you spent more than $100, so I bought two pair! This way I can alternate shoes and not have to buy another new pair for a while.
I am also excited by the green color. I didn’t really pick it–it was the closeout color, but I have been through at least 10 pairs of blue Sauconys so far (I’ll have to take a picture of my running shoe shelf in my closet for you guys), so I am excited for a change.
Yay, for Girl Scout cookies and new running shoes!
What’s your favorite kind of Girl Scout cookie?
Mine are probably Samoas (but Thin Mints and Tagalongs are a close second). Don’t tell the Girl Scouts…but Safeway actually makes a really good knockoff version. I do not allow myself to buy them anymore because I eat the whole box. In one day.
