The Cookie Monster Lifestyle

Sometimes Gracefully 2 Sometimes Gracefully 6 Sometimes Gracefully Sometimes Gracefully 4

Well, it’s official! Baking Christmas cookies is not my thing. I sensed that this revelation was coming last Christmas, when I came to the conclusion that I thoroughly enjoyed eating the Christmas cookies more than baking the Christmas cookies. But even then, I was convinced that I still enjoyed the baking aspect of the Christmas cookie ritual. The egg cracking! The mixing! The threat of salmonella in every scoop of cookie dough! I just can’t do it. The directions, the measurements, the ennnnnndless mixing. Nobody takes a cute picture of baking fancy Christmas cookies with a caption that reads “This whole affair is utterly exhausting!” Nope. It’s all fun and games until the spritzer device jams for the fifteenth time. I mean, Cookie Monster never bakes the cookies he consumes so ravenously, and he’s living a darn successful existence, am I right? The Cookie Monster lifestyle seems much more preferable. My advice to you this holiday season? Surround yourselves with good friends — especially friends that enjoy baking {and sharing} cookies.

Darrin and I are celebrating our Christmas tonight with a cool fort beneath the Christmas tree and some hot chocolate. I recently discovered that Darrin has never seen Footloose {!!!… can pick your jaw up off the floor now}, so we may be will definitely be adding that to the evening’s to-do list.

Merry Christmas Eve Eve from my tiny family to yours!

    When it comes to Christmas cookies I’m pretty much the opposite. I love baking them but after eating so much of the unbaked dough I don’t feel like eating them anymore.
    Love the shirt.
