You're Invited...

What have I been doing lately? A lot of invites, actually. They can be done late at night, on the computer, in my jammas after all of the kids have gone to bed. Some of the things I've made are:

Girl Scout Banquet, RS Birthday Dinner, Sam and Piper's Birthday party, Baby Shower, and Ward MTC. The hilarious thing is that they are all within 30 days of each other. So, now you know what I've been up to. Tons of planning. I'm actually almost late for scouts - I'm bringing my camera to corner unsuspecting families for my OTHER responsibility - ward photo directory. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeoooot.

Girl Scout Surprise

Okay, this may be the lamest post ever, but I am putting it out there: Girl Scout Lemon Chalet Cremes are worth the $3.50 per box. I know, I KNOW! It's a ridiculous to price to pay when it's CHOCOLATE, why would anyone risk that kinda cash on a cookie? Well. I don't blame you. The lemon cremes look like the cheapie wafer cookies in the big cellophane no-name bags at the store. The ones where you get 100 for $1.99.

But I was delivering some to a lady who said, "These are HUGE in Texas - I can't believe I'm one of the only ones to buy some. TRY ONE!" Well, for one, it's got the sissiest name EVER. Lemon Chalet. Who was in charge of naming, and what was the alternate?

So, with these low expectations, I took a bite. Oh, my. The cookie has spices like cinnamon and ginger, and the creme has lemon zest or SOMETHING that makes it so incredibly lemony and tasty that you KNOW you are not eating a cheap cookie. OH, my, yum. Go, try, enjoy. Worth every calorie. I do NOT feel like I am swishing down the Swiss Alps. I do NOT feel like I am on vacation at a "chalet", but I DO love the lemony taste of these cookies! Recommend. Highly. I should start an Oprah list.

And our number one fan? Baby Sam. He can't get enough of them. He can be lured away from anything if you just dangle a lemon creme where he can see it. So, if you get a chance, get a box. Open it right there. Try one. Then buy two more boxes, because you will be craving these babies just as soon as you've swallowed one. YUM. Then give me a call. I like to know I've made a change in someone's life. Even if it's a new addiction. ;D
