I know that evil comes in many forms.
I also know that this is one of them.


I have somehow managed to keep the Girl Scout cookies out of my house this year.
It's totally a God thing.
I was experiencing a moment of weakness the other day and reached in to my pocket to get the $4 I had just received as change so that I could by a box of mouth watering "Tagalongs" (at least that's what they used to be called). 
The money was not there. 
Somehow, this I-always-keep-money-in-my-pocket-and-never-put-it-in-my-wallet mommy had managed to secure the money in her wallet, where it actually belongs.
So because I'm too lazy to haul three small children to the other end of a parking lot and back just for a box of cookies, we are still cookie free.
It's kind of a miracle considering how often the darn things have frequented our house in the past. 
I'm hoping that they will just go away.
But even just looking at that picture? 
Evil. That is all I see.
And don't even get me started on the Thin Mint ice cream. And they at least make a lower fat version of that.
I will not buy Girl Scout cookies.
I will not buy Girl Scout cookies.
I will not buy Girl Scout cookies.
Maybe if I say it enough it will actually come true.

Have you stayed cookie free this Girl Scout cookie season?

Seriously, stick with your resolve to stay away! Those are my favorites too and I bought a box to keep in the fridge. yeah, right. They made it into my mouth one weekend. A lot of 'em. Not good.

I just started following your blog, I too am on a journey to losing weight and getting healthy.
I so feel your pain with girl scout cookies, I was sooooooo tempted to get some, them naughty little girls were at every store I would go into asking for me to buy, I lied and said I don't have money. Those things are way too nummy!

Stay away from them, stay far far away.

Four boxes of them followed me home. Fortunately I have two small boys who consumed most of them.

Most, not all. Sadly.
