sugar, sugar.



this saturday i hosted my second annual cookie exchange with a great group of friends -- including three of my favorite chicago bloggers:: shari [the daily dish], zoe [style foodie], and lara [simply irresistible].  we snacked on dips and appetizers, played a fun taboo-esq game and then dug into all of the cookies (there were sooo many tasty options). we also packed up a box of cookies that will be shipped to a solder in Afghanistan. somewhere in the middle all of the chatting and games i missed watching the holiday...so i'm putting that on my to-do list before christmas :)


how was your weekend?!

  11. Looks like such fun! Every year I see people's pictures from cookie swaps and I resolve that I will host one the following year. I wonder if I could get my act together in time for this year, or if I should get to planning for 2012!

  26. I had never heard of Cookie Exchanges until a week or so ago when I saw suggestions on Martha Stewart - however, I still don't quite understand just what they are or how they came about. Explanation?
