You Capture - Real Life

This is my M.O. It's what I've got. It's what I do. Are we happy? I'll bake cookies. Are we sad? I'll bake cookies. Are we angry? I'll bake cookies. Are we menstrual? I'll bake cookies. I like to think they are "healthy," since there's no eggs or butter, and it's mostly organic, and usually vegan. But, um, the fact remains that they are COOKIES and are still full of sugar and chocolate. Because why even bother to bake cookies if there's no sugar and chocolate?

I will admit it. I have a drinking problem. I am addicted to warm beverages. I waste far too much money far too often on various forms of hot cocoa and chai. And then, the next morning, when I need to make room in my vehicle's drink holder for the morning's tea, I place the remains of last night's fix on this little ledge in the garage. Right in front of the weird plastic giraffe and the Boston police's "no stopping or parking" order.

There is more real life for the viewing over at Beth's.

I meant AND cookies, but I guess coffee cookies might not be bad either :)

Any day or reason is a good one to eat cookies. However, I'll never want cookies enough to bake em. I don't know why.

I kind of do the same thing with my fast food cups of diet coke. Except, it's actually in my car. I have a bag full of McDonald's cups. You and I can combine all of our cups and make some sort of modern art piece.

I always believe that there is no wrong time to make cookies! Just the smell of them baking in the oven is enough to make anyones day just that much brighter!

"Are we menstrual? I'll bake cookies." Hahaha you just totally made my day.

I'm pretty sure I have a cookie-eating and hot drink-drinking problem too. It may not be a "problem" so much as an "obsession"...especially when Aunt Flo comes to visit!
So um...that vegan cookie recipe...care to share? :D

I need to bake cookies now. It's only 6:30 a.m., but your photo makes me want them NOW! :)

I'm loving the cup cemetery in your garage! Hilarious! I try to make myself feel better by "recycling" the cup and make a hot beverage, at home, for another day. Now my cupboard looks like a cup cememery! And girl, if you could TEACH me how to make presentable, good tasting cookies, you'd be my friend for life! Fun captures!
