Power Shopping

Today, we were power shoppers.  We had a plan, a mapped out route and a list that would impress you.  We went to...get ready...

Mardel, Target, Macys, James Avery, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Cobblestone Cottage, Ya Ya Club, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Mimosa Rose, HEB, a few old town Katy antique stores, and of course Chick-fil-A.  We were going to go to Old Navy and Aldo but I forgot my returns in the middle of the living room floor (don't you hate that!?).

Ben was an excellent driver.  He would drop me off so I could get started shopping and then park and come in, or just stay in the car and wait.  And he kept me from getting too stressed by periodically semi-tackling me, hugging me, or suggesting ridiculous gifts.  Overall, we were a great Christmas shopping team. 

One more week of school, then another week of rest and family fun and then Christmas!

Calling all Cookie Recipes!

This Sunday, I am going to my very first cookie exchange.  I love cookies.  They are my weakness.  And I'm going to a party for COOKIES!  But I want to bring a really yummy, fun cookie.  Any suggestions?  I'm sure I can find a good one somewhere, I just am sure that one of you out there has an amazing cookie recipe that is your all-time favorite.  So, if you have one, I'd love to have it.  Or if you don't want to type out the recipe, you could just tell me the name of it.  Thanks!
