Valentine's Cookies...loads of them

Thursday, February 3, 2011
Ok...it's been crazy busy around here lately.

First, I got the flu.....I never get sick.  Like EVER!  And I mean that!  I get sick maybe once a year and it's for like 2 days or something if at all.  But this time I was sick with a fever sick...

Explain to me why my husband can call into the office and then stay in bed all day when he doesn't feel well but when I should be confined to bed rest because I can't even see straight, I can't call in?  There are no paid sick days for Mommys.  Just so not fair.

Anyway...then the hubs got sick and then my baby girl got sick.  I hate it when kids are sick.  Every little cough breaks my heart.  :(

So now we have recovered (for the most part) just to get iced in to our home.  Dallas experienced "severe winter weather" and basically shut down half the highways due to hazardous road conditions.  It was a ghost town.  Public transport shut down and the city came to a stop.

However the crew at Starbucks made it in to work.....so I suppose Dallas won't go under completely.

Ice days = Baking days ;)

Get ready for an onslaught of sugary sweets:










I've been a busy bee.

I'm not done tho :)

Valentine's is my favorite cookie holiday!  Be prepared to be sick of love by the time Feb 14 rolls around.

I have some fun plans for the blog in the future here.  We have more Valentine cookies coming up (duh), a couple baby showers, a birthday party, and hopefully some really fun not-cookie-related stuff!  (Did she say non-cookie??  *gasp*  I think she did!)

Hope everyone else is making the most out of the foul weather right now.  Stay indoors and stay warm!  Brr!!

They're all amazing, of course, but I LOVE the white heart with the flowers on the sides. I must try to do that!

I already serenaded you with my compliments on another post.....but do you have a bake shop where you can order these or is this a crazy talent kept under wraps through it being a hobby? Girl, you should be in business if you arent' already! I would order these Valentines day cookies in a heartbeat!! No pun intended....lol
