Sugar Cookies

Truth be told, I'm not much of a cake person. 

I'm more of an ice cream, key lime pie, and candy person.

Yes, I've had my fair share of candy hearts this season. I started eating them post-Christmas and have yet to stop. I did, however, opt for the portion-controlled boxes this time. Remember October's candy stash? That bag was gone in a matter of tummy aches.

I was also not much of a cookie person, until I discovered these sugar cookies with royal icing. I really love decorating sugar cookies, and I think they are so adorable!

And unlike decorating a cake, if you mess up on the decorating, you can simply eat the cookie.

Sometimes I mess up on purpose.

Sometimes my pile of cookie misfits is bigger than my pile of perfection.

I documented a little of my Minnie Mouse Sugar Cookie decorating to share with you:


Forgive me for showing you sugar cookies this early in the morning.

I've heard that if you eat a Nutri-Grain bar, the rest of your day will be filled with healthy decisions.  

I don't have a Nutri-Grain bar, but I do have a banana.

This is happening at my desk right now:

It's a shame I can't wear stretch pants to work.
