Long have nasty Girl Scouts held sway over the cookie lovers of our great country. Accosting innocent victims and charging a heinous $3.50 per box to fund their nefarious deeds and buy badges for their sashes.
I did my time as a Junior in Girl Scouts, and even graduated to whatever the blue sash level is. And it was pretty darn fun. I learned how to crochet and take care of animals, and the troop took me on my first skiing trip. And let me say, selling cookies was far more fun than selling calendars like we did one year. So I am totally for supporting Girl Scouts!
As everyone with any taste knows, Samoas are the Queen of Girl Scout cookies. I seem to end up losing cash to their siren call every year, and then suffering through the drought of cookies after....
Enter new Keebler Coconut Dream cookies. Basically Samoas for half the price all year long. Despite wanting to support girls and all that, how can you resist the deal AND the deliciousness?
So Ben and I did a side-by-side taste test this evening.

I found a new website that I absolutely love! I'm pretty terrible at picking out outfits. I tend to only look at sales racks, and when I buy clothes it's just one thing at a time. I never imagine the whole ensemble, so I mostly end up with jeans and t-shirts.
Well, I will still be wearing jeans and t-shirts, but in a fun imaginary land that is Polyvore you get to make whole outfits. They are all heinously expensive and probably would still be out of my budget even if I found cheap look-alike versions. But it's fun to put stuff together. It's almost like I'm getting an unlimited shopping spree. And it gives us outfit challenged girls a chance to feel fashionable. Here's my first creation!

"Knowing what we know and living as we are supposed to live, there really is no place, no excuse, for pessimism and despair..."
"I promise you in the name of the Lord whose servant I am that God will always protect and care for his people. We will have our difficulties the way every generation and people have had difficulties. But with the gospel of Jesus Christ, you have every hope and promise and reassurance. The Lord has power over His saints and will always prepare places of peace, defense, and safety for His people. When we have faith in God we can hope for a better world - for us personally and for all mankind."
~ President Howard W. Hunter
