Now (not to sound like a cookie snob, lol), but usually we make our Christmas sugar cookies from scratch. BUT, my mom picked up this mix from Trader Joe's for - Ta Da! - 99 cents! It came with mix, icing, sprinkles, even cookie cutters. All we had to do was add an egg and butter. They were quite easy and tasty, too.
Here's a look at some of the finished products. (We used some of our own cookie cutters and decorations, too because we have a ton!)
The past couple of days have been good overall. I've had my moments, cried my tears, but I've had the most stress-free days I've had in a long time. Part of it, I think, is because I get to skate more now that I'm on break. It sounds cliche, but it really is my escape and my love. Even though I'm by on means an amazing skater, I feel like its something special, something I can do and not worry about what everyone else says or thinks about me.
Which leads me to a story I read in Marie Claire while I was at work yesterday. It's basically about what are called Highly Sensitve People - people who "feel" more than most others and react to things (and people)on a much deeper level. Even though I don't necessarily think this is a condition or disease per say, it describes me perfectly and it was reassuring to see that, at the very least, I'm not quite crazy!
It's a very interesting concept and I think many of us can relate to it.
Soo, I hope you (all 6 of you, lol!) are having a good week and getting prepared for holiday fun! Thank you guys so much for commenting and visiting my humble little blog, btw. I love reading your comments - they make me smile! Hugs to all!<3
