Serendipity

So.... when I took the kids to Sonoma for a hike so Jimmy could get a whole day by himself, it was under one condition. That my dear husband would use the girl scout cookie app to get manna from heaven for me. I NEEDED these cookies... ever so badly. And this is why: I am on a sugar fast and have been since December 26th (except for that one time I ate dessert at a restaraunt in Miami Beach that I was pretty sure was a once in a lifetime thing and I knew that if I didn;t do it I'd regret it for the rest of my life- moreso than breaking a goal I had set. But, anyways...) I will be breaking this sugar fast next week when I am in between Great in 8 challenges. I have a list of things I will be partaking of on this breaking of the sugar fast. I have already welcomed the idea of being incredibly sick and I am joyous over this fact. Here is my list:

Bouchon Bakery and everything in it
Dean and Deluca chocolates
a slice of champagne cake from Buttercream Bakery
the TWO POUNDS of See's candy my visiting teacher got me on V Day (I might share this one. Might.)
Reese's peanut butter cups
a butterfinger
a giant ice cream sundae bar at our house- GIANT, I tell you
Three Twins ice cream cone
Churros at Bistro Sabor
mini m&m's
oh yes, and these girl scout cookies

 
How did I get these here cookies, though? Obviously, because of my obsession with building the aforementioned list, I have gotten off topic. The whole point was this- Jimmy followed the cookie app with no success. Those little girls lied. Jimmy called telling me that he waited around for them to show up (not in a creepy way. More in a my wife is crazy, I would rather scare little children than face her without a box of cookies, kind of way) Unfortunately, they never showed up. Literally after he had called me in Sonoma to bear the bad news, I drove by a "drive thru" girl scout cookie stand. Brilliant. Of course I drove thru. And may have been a little grabby with those boxes. Just a little. And that is the story of how I will be spending a sugar induced coma starring my friends Thin Mint and Samoa.
