I'm on a roll!

I spent all morning making these babies... 
They turned out great! The only thing is they are WAY sugary. I don't know if I'm a big royal icing fan. Sure, they're pretty, but the pure sugar flavor takes away from the delicious cookies. Maybe I made the icing wrong, I dunno, but one thing I do know is sugar and I don't mix. I was feeling great about today until I ate 2 of those cookies. If you think a woman's attitude is crazy when she's PMSing, you can only imagine how I am when I get too much sugar. My poor kids. lol! 

Well, since I'm a nice mom (when I don't have a lot of sugar) I took the kids to the playground while I walked 2 miles around it pushing Annabelle. She's so cute, I wish I could have recorded it, but she was singing the whole time I was pushing the stroller. It was really cute. :) Her little voice sounds like Boo on Monsters Inc.

We got home after my 2 miles were done and I made dinner, they ate, and I gave them a cookie. That was all fine and dandy until I ate one too. Yeah, one too many cookies for me today. I think that was cookie #4 or 5 for the day. My patience went down the drain. I'm telling ya...sugar is NOT good for me, but it's Oh SO good...

I got the kids bathed and ready for bed and went down stairs to work off the sugar. 30 minutes on my darling elliptical and some fun Cake Boss and I was feeling MUCH better.
 My awesome inperspire towel kept me nice and dry during my work out and it felt great to have worked off my stress and the sugar. I made a nice bowl of taco rice for dinner and sat and watched the Thursday night line up on NBC.

So far, so good. Let's hope I can keep it up when Jason gets home.

Those are by far the most beautiful cookies I have ever seen. WOW. Amazing. I've been on a sugar high the last two days too. I made apple dunplings which are coated in sugar and butter. They are delicious and I ate way too many. Its just that time of year.

Those cookies are amazing!! I love them with a cup of coffee. yum

I KNOW! The Boo voice! LBM sounds just like that too but I don't like to say it since LBM is a boy and Boo is a girl. I'm sure his voice will get lower. heeheehee

Great job working off those yummy cookies!

Those cookies look too cute!
I like plain cookies and plain cake. No icing. I think icing detracts from the real cookie/cake taste.
