I am obsessed with Pinterest!  There are so many great things to look at and to drool over.  Well, the other day I found a wonderful cookie picture that immediately caught my attention.  Hhhmmm….what’s a girl to do, make cookies with the new found recipe or unpack boxes?  As you can see the cookies won! ENJOY!!!

    I’m hooked on Pinterest too. It’s borderline obsession. I was at work today wishing that I was at home baking and blogging rather than working!
