Wow, thanks for all the cookie names. I like how some of you came back to make even more suggestions, ha! And amazing that with almost 200 entries so far, there are only a handful of repeat names. That’s crazy. Ok, so we have a lot of names to sift through, and you know what? I realized that we’re less than a week away from our blog anniversary and we always do a giveaway to celebrate, so we’re going to pick 2 winners as usual, 1 random and 1 name winner if we do in fact use a name out of the pool. You get to pick another pack of cookies of your choice to go with your booty, so we’re closing the contest a day earlier since Mark will be baking those cookies Friday and we want them to be fresh. Maybe we’ll throw something else in there as well.
Speaking of fun things in the mail, our friends Nichole and Evan picked up these treats for us on their last trip to Paris (not the candle, the candle is from Target, but Nichole has become my candle pimp. She keeps giving me candles every time we go over to their house). Included in the package was a bar of dark chocolate with pink peppercorns. It reminded her of our pink peppercorn cookies, but we wasted no time in eating that right away, so no photo.
Nicole and I have been trying to go to Paris together for a long weekend, but it doesn’t look like it will happen for Spring as we’d originally hoped. Maybe in the Fall, but the girls, Mark and I are getting really excited about our upcoming summer trips. We’ll go back to Seattle in August as usual, but we’re looping in a trip to San Francisco and Yosemite while we’re out West. At the end of May, we’ll spend 4-5 days in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. We haven’t been there before.
Is it summer yet?
