Death By Girl Scout Cookies – Losing Weight

Girl Scout cookie season is upon us and I was determined not to buy boxes and boxes of cookies this year. However, I was a Girl Scout as a little girl and believe in supporting the cause. So, I decided to purchase one box, and one box only.

No, I did not purchase those gooey, luscious, striped, caramel and coconut covered Samoas that I love so well. Nor did I fall prey to purchasing those silky tasting Thin Mints. Nope. I was determined to be smarter and wiser this year, seriously focus on my commitment to losing some weight. I purchased the Shortbread cookie that has a thin layer of chocolate on the back – my least tempting ones. My daughter and my niece love chocolate. Either or both were bound to want these cookies. I was feeling rather proud of myself… what a thoughtful mother/aunt I am.

Hah! As fate would have it, both were happy about my purchase until they found out it was the Girl Scout Shortbread cookies. “Any kind but those” they said almost simultaneously. No worries, I thought. I shall give them away to a friend. Day after day those cookies sat on my kitchen counter, beckoning and calling my name each time I walked past. I have GOT to get these cookies out of my house! They are going to be the death of me!

A week passed. Then another. Working on a project at my kitchen table around 1:30am one morning, I got an uncontrollable urge for ‘something sweet’. You guessed it! I unabashedly opened that box and ate two of those cookies. Darn, Sherry. You’ve got to be strong. Now I thought, how can I give anyone a partial box of cookies (Isn’t it amazing how we can rationalize anything if we think about it long enough?). As the other side of fate would have it, a couple more days passed, and those cookies didn’t live to see the light of day outside of my house. Once I opened the box, those cookies didn’t stand a chance!

Lesson learned. While I do believe in supporting causes, I can simply make a donation and walk away… without the cookies in hand. I can also choose to NOT bring sweets and tempting goodies into my home… free choice/free will. Final lesson, getting an insufficient amount of rest can derail your will power.

Have you ever fallen hard for the taste of Girl Scout cookies? Let me hear from you.

Prepare Yourself For The Powerpuff Girls Party

It’s party time, and the best way to make things easier on yourself is to decide on a theme such as a Powerpuff Girls party. If your daughter is a fan, a Powerpuff Girls Party is sure to be a success! Here are some easy hints and tips to make your party go off without a hitch!

Since the professor created the Powerpuff girls from sugar and spice and everything nice, it would be the perfect setting to allow guests are your Powerpuff Girls Party to create their own powerpuff girls out of premade cookie dough. Each girl could be given her own bit of dough (be sure to bake some yourself–perhaps even have them made ahead of time, just in case of a mishap such as a broken cookie) then, after the cookies are baked and cooled, each girl could choose their favorite Powerpuff girl and be given a picture to use to decorate their cookie to match! A good alternative if your girls are not old enough to decorate with that much detail, would be to have powerpuff girl cookies decorated according to character, but allow them to make one of their own and frost it in the color that coordinates with the character they like best.

Sleepover Powerpuff Girls Parties work very well as sleepovers. Just be sure to include any necessities such as sleeping bags or pillows in the invitations. You can even set up a tent in your back yard or living room to make it special. If you are planning a back yard tent slumber party, remember to have a back up plan in case of weather problems or scared campers, and consider including a flashlight with fresh batteries in loot bags for every guest. Another thing to remember with Sleepovers is to specify exact pick up and drop off times to ensure there are no mix ups later.
