Uh-oh -- It's Girl Scout Cookie time again!

I have a few weaknesses (ok maybe more than a few) but my love of Girl Scout Cookies? Seriously disturbing. At this age, I have no shame in admitting that I was a Girl Scout until I graduated from high school. It wasn't the cool thing to do, for sure, but I made many good and constant friends during Girl Scout activities and meetings. I learned lots of cool stuff - including how to change my tire - from Girl Scouts. I traveled to Mexico and around our country with Girl Scouts. Intangibly, I gained self-confidence, leadership skills, commitment to community service, and a strong sense of self-worth - oh and a love of cookies! ;)

I know people have different experiences in Girl Scouts and other organizations, but mine just happened to be pretty fantabulous. The women who led were role models, kind souls, and teachers with high expectations that we would always do our best. Girl Scouts was fun for me - I think I'm a bit of a dork though - I do like to learn! ;)

So, I sold cookies every year. My mom stocked our freezer with Thin Mints, Trefoils, etc and we had cookies all year long. For many years, my mom was the "Cookie Mom" and all the cases and cases of cookies for every girl in our town were delivered to our house. (Hmm...perhaps this is where my unhealthy attachment came from... .;)).

I want other girls to get as much out of Girl Scouts as I did and I love the cookies so I buy them. Probably not great for my figure.....but it's like a trip down memory lane for me too.....



*Currently eating the "newish" chocolate covered cookie ("Thanks-a-Lot") with a cup of tea (oh yeah and sometimes I dip them)......but I love frozen Thin Mints crumbled over a dish of vanilla ice cream too.

Mmm...I love Thin Mints. Luckily I haven't run into any Girl Scouts selling them yet. Those cookies don't last long around me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I LOVE Girl Scout cookies too, but sadly my husband & I stopped eating them last year as we're on a Trans-Fat-Free kick and those cookies have them. WAAAAAAAAAH! It's not fair and I may have to break the rules when cookies come our way (for some reason we don't get them here in Duluth til about May)...and order a box or two of Thin Mints. Delish! (I love the Trefoils too. yummy)
