Today I Indulged.

Kind of a misleading title since I eat treats every day.  Will work on that area of self-control after I've conquered it with time, money, and house cleaning.

Today I bought and ate some of these:

cookies!

I love Samoas.  And Thin Mints.  But especially Samoas.  What's not to love about cookie, chocolate, caramel and coconut? 

I remember when I sold girl scout cookies.  My mom taught my how to make change and we role-played selling cookies before I actually got my feet wet.  My dad drove me all over Issaquah.  There were a ton of subdivisions when we lived there (and a billion more now).  I knocked on so many doors.  It was cold, wet work, but I ended up selling the most cookies in my troop and I was soooooo proud of my little 7 year old self! 

Were you ever a girl scout?  What is your favorite girl scout cookie?

Oh my goodness, I dream about these all year long and then rejoice when the little girl scouts knock on my door. I'm salivating over this picture and wondering when mine will be delivered. Something to look forward to, definitely.

And no, I never made it to Girl Scout status, but I was a Brownie. Troop 3339.

Never a girl scout, but a huge fan of their cookies!! What a little sales girl you were! I can't say no so my freezer is full of frozen cookie dough from school fund raisers. I have yet to see a cute little Girl Scout come a knocking on my door, but I guarantee if there were, I'd have more cookies to eat!!

Yum, love girl scout cookies. I like the peanut butter patties and thin mints.

I love them too. It is a hard decision whether I love them more than thin mints. Our girl scout dropped of our box of thin mints the other day and I resisted opening them bc I knew I would scarf them down! I finally did and half the box is gone.

You may not believe this but I tried the Samosas for the first time a few weeks ago and they were sooo good. I can't believe I'd been missing out all these years.

I was a scout from first to sixth grade. I like the chocolate peanut butter ones, whatever they are called. Truth be told, I like them all!

Those look REALLY good. I think that I would have indulged too. I'm going to be on the lookout for girlscouts now!

I use to be a Brownie. haha. My fave Girl scout cookie are the thin mints. I have a box of them that I got last year that isn't even opened yet. I have been thinking of opening them soon.

No, I was a Girl Guide. Our cookies were crap. I'm dying to try these Thin Mints everybody raves about!

Those look yummy.
Selling cookies seems to be a very american girl scout tradition.
I was a Brownie and never even got a sniff of a cookie.

I'm going to try and be good and not buy any this year. My favorites are the samoa cookies, though, hands down.
