Winter Hiatus

Winter.
Is.
Finally.
Over.
Yes!
So- now I can be a normal human being again.


I baked some cookies here and there this winter.
Most were for others.
And I have no good photos of the cookies I baked.
No proof of the work.
Because- trying to take photos in sunlight..
in Ohio...
in the winter..
Is kinda like trying to to catch a flying pig with both hands tied behind your back...
Don't ask me how I came up with that last thought.....


If you want to see some phone pics of the cookies I have done-
Check out my instagram.

Things are finally looking up now that spring is here....
So- I may decide to use my camera again.


I leave you all with a couple of random things that make me smile.

Snowflake Cookies, ankles, and brand new babies.....

Whew....
The past few weeks have been crazy....
Good and Bad...
I became an auntie again to cutest little guy ever....
I adore him so much I am even posting a picture of myself..
on the internet...
the horror...


I have been getting over a cold...
one that was generously shared with me by a cutie pie....
Then I fell down the stairs a sprained my ankle..
My foot is literally bruised on both sides and on the bottom of my foot..
Have you ever seen bruises on the bottom of the foot before?
not pretty...


I did get to spend some time with the cutest twins ever.


I had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family.
I participated in my first swap with a fellow blogger- Jenny.
She sent me the sweetest package of goodies!


I did bake a few cookies but not nearly as many as I had hoped to.


I kept it simple with the sugar cookies I made and only made one kind.


I hope everyone is enjoying the new year.
Mine has been off to a rough start with my ankle
but- I am hopeful that things will turn around!


Smiles,
Marci

Baby Shower Cookies

I made some baby shower cookies for my sister in law....
who is expecting my newest nephew....
I told her to hold him in till after Thanksgiving at least...
Now, I think she is just taking it too far....
I can't wait to meet the newest Johnson. 




I am way behind on Holiday baking.... 
I don't even have my tree up yet.
But, everything will fall into place...

But first- Baby Raleigh needs to come!!

Happy Sunday everyone!

A little bit about me.... and Minnie Mouse Cookies

I decided to shake things up a little and share some fun facts about myself....
I am a Social Worker (gasp!)
I mean there is no surprise there right?
I love my job.  I really do.   I just have days where I need to remind myself that I do.
This week was filled with those days.  


I bake for fun.  
I love to bake and decorate cookies.
But, I also love to bake all kinds of sweets.
Decorated cookies take time, so it is fun to make other kinds of cookies
that are quick to make and just as tasty.  
I love to make cupcakes but really don't like to bake cakes....
riddle me that...
And fancy cakes.... not my thing.
Fondant- yuck!


I love all animals, but have two cats.
I drink coffee and tea.


I sometimes eat store bought cookies (gasp!)
I refuse to eat certain things like margarine and diet soda....
But think nothing of eating Cheetos.


I went to OSU (Ohio State University) for graduate school. 
So, I am a true Buckeye...
But, my true love is for Miami University (Love & Honor)
where I completed my undergraduate degree.
I went back there recently with some of Miami Girls and had so much fun!


I am the auntie to three adorable nephews.....
with a fourth on the way. 
They fill my heart with joy.

I will eat leftovers, but once I have eaten something two or three times..
I am done with that food for a while.  
Which means I tire of foods quickly. 
I may love something one day.... and not want it the next.
But- in a few months- I will love that food again.  

I hoard napkins.  They are everywhere.  In my desk drawer...
In my glove compartment of my car....

And....
Fun facts to be continued.....

Enjoy your weekend.
And enjoy Minnie Mouse cookies. 

Smiles, 
Marci

Summer Wrap up....

Instead of me making a list of excuses...
excuses for why I have not baked...
or decorated cookies...
I thought it might be better if I show you...

So here it is...
Summer in a snapshot....







Hope everyone had a great summer.  
Pumpkin Season is almost upon us.

Smiles,
Marci
