Happy Saturday lovelies & thanks for popping by to check out this cookie post <3

I love cookies. Do you love cookies? Like realllly love cookies? Because I reallllly love cookies – like I am basically the cookie monster in human form. So if you are like me, then you have come to the right place my friend. Cookie lovers unite!

I mean honestly, who could look at this picture and not be immediately inflicted with a case of the drools? If there is anybody out there who is looking at this picture, and hasn’t started thinking about making a batch of cookies and then proceeding to eat the entire tray… you have the kind of willpower that I will never know.

Seriously, trying to get me to resist a fresh, homemade cookie that has been baked to perfection with a crisp exterior, chewy center, rich flavour and ooey gooey chocolate….. that’s like trying to get me to resist breathing – and let’s face it, that’s just not going to happen.

Okay, so maybe I don’t deserve credit of any kind, but I’m just trying not to dwell on the fact that I have to add yet another thing to my list of failed New Years resolution attempts. But alright, alright, in the interest of owning my up to my shortcomings, i’ll just admit it – I failed …(insert defeated sigh here :P)

Now I’m not trying to make excuses for myself, because I am a big believer in the “no excuses” policy right now, but what can I say, these last two weeks have been a little bit of a whirlwind for me and as a result I totally let myself get behind in my posts… Blaaah!!! But hey – I am here now, so I say enough with the dwelling on the bad and let’s move on to celebrating the good – agreed?! Agreed.
