Ready To Swap Some Cookies!

by Courtney on December 18, 2010

I’ve been tackling a “To-Do” list a mile long since about 8am this morning! :shock:


I started out with a sweaty, 4-mile run on the treadmill. It felt fabulous!

Then I took care of a little cleaning around the house, which included our mini “makeshift kitchen” corner in the living room:


As of yesterday afternoon, I am officially without a stove. Hello, microwave. ;)

After cleaning, a trip to the Farmers Market was in order for some fresh baked bread,


so I could make this fantastic rye bread dip.


While I was out, I had to pick up a little caffeine to keep me going. :)


Now I’m working on getting ready to head to Heather’s house for a cookie swap! I’m so excited…I LOVE cookie swaps!

Part of going to the swap means bringing not only the cookies, but also the recipe…so I broke out my trusty laminator (one of my fun “teacher toys”)


And got to work on my festive recipe cards!



Now I think I’m ready to pack up these bad boys and get ready to party with some of my favorite blogger gals. :-D



I can’t wait to see what goodies I get to come home with later!! :-D

Question for the Afternoon:

Have you ever attended a cookie swap before??

I love laminators. I find reasons to laminate things in my office all the time. I loved the huge one at the school I taught at.

I’ve been to one cookie swap in college. I was on a sugar high for all Christmas break :-)

Ooh those cookies look good! They’ll be very popular no doubt! :)
I’ve never been to a cookie swap, but I’ll at it to my To-Do-Before-I-Die list! :P

I have never attended a cookie swap but I REALLY want to!

Those cookies look delicious! :)

Our school used to do a cookie swap! I only did it once, but as much as a cookie person that I am, I didn’t like it. Some of the cookies I didn’t even care for, and then I didn’t want to give away or put out cookies that I didn’t like or couldn’t take credie for! So, I”m not a big fan of them.

Have fun tonight :) I wish I was there- I think cookie swaps are the BEST!
So nice that you are laminating them!

I have hosted a cookie swap two years in a row now and it’s been great! I love getting to try all kinds of new cookies, and have a nice variety on hand for…snacks…
