I'm in trouble

Last night was the cookie exchange at book club. I didn't go...just in case...even though I felt completely fine by then. But my friends saved some cookies for me. When I got home tonight this plate was waiting for me on my front step. How sweet is that? Thanks, reading buddies! The only thing is...in our household of 4...I am the only one who will eat these. My husband is way too healthy to go for a plate full of cookies, and my oldest son doesn't like sweets. My youngest son prefers store-bought cheapies over a homemade cookie, but we'll see. Heck, I can't make excuses, it's my own lack of willpower that is the real problem here. Everything on this plate looks good to me. See? This delightful surprise is both a blessing and a curse.

Go for it! If I were there, I would certainly help you ;)

What book(s) is your club reading? Any non-baby-related recos?

Ok, the cookies are fabulous. I wish that those of you rooting me on were here to help me eat them. I'd even make you coffee (the real kind.) The pretzels are out of this world...the one that is covered in Oreos? OMG! I MUST have this recipe. Yum!

PR - The discussion on Wednesday was "The Time Traveler's Wife", which I know you read and loved! Next month is "For One More Day" by Mitch Albom. I think this must be his newest. There are about 135 holds for it at the library ( which I know because I'm #130.) I've just started "The Memory Keeper's Daughter", which is supposed to be good, and a couple people have recommended "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan". There's another one I've heard about..."Water for Elephants". Supposed to be fantastic. Do you have any that you can recommend for moi? :)

Sorry, had to jump in on the book club discussion... We read "Memory Keepers Daughter" and it was pretty boring. Also read the Secret Fan book and Time Travelers Wife too!
