Cookies anyone?!

Hubby thought we should celebrate the season of cookies, help support our local girl scouts, AND bump up their sales with our biggest order yet!! I came home to a year supply of cookies, and although I am really excited about them .... my figure does not need them!!!! How do I say "no" to a little yummy taste of goodness when my pantry is overflowing with them?


I am hooked on Samoa's, but I am really excited to try their new 2010 flavor. I mean, since you're going to twist my arm ......

Did you buy any girl scout cookies this year?? 
 If so, how many and what's your favorite kind?

I'm obsessed with samoas too!! I bought two boxes just for myself!! Good thing they are all gone already...only took me a week per box to finish them off!! Yikes!! And if you think your figure can't handle them Lord only knows what those two boxes did to MY figure!! Off to make a dent in the 3 boxes of thin mints in our freezer!! Haha!! Happy girl scout cookie season!!! :)

Brittany said...

Lol that's too funny! I haven't bought any just yet but maybe I should stay away from them this year!

~KS said...

I didn't buy any... but I'm allergic to chocolate so there are only a few I can eat anyway...
But my mom and dad always buy a million boxes. It is just impossible to say no!!

Melissa G. said...

The Samoa are my favorite! oh yum! But my box calls them Carmel deLights.

Kristen said...

We bought 7 boxes (thin mints and tagalongs). So good...they need to get out of the pantry though!

Enjoy your cookies!

Miranda Tucci said...

Oh my goodness! I envy your cookie stash! ;-)

A Love Worth Waiting For said...

I just bought 4 boxes while I was in town today! : ) My husband had never had a Girl Scout cookie before. He loved them! My favorite is thin mints!

By the way, I love your blog!

Brittany said...

Hello cookies!! We bought 4 boxes, 2 thin mints, 1 trefoil and 1 samoa. However neither of us can eat them because we're both trying to cut back. Bad timing...

Kristina and TJ said...

I love Samoas too! However we haven't been able to locate any this year. So sad I don't know what I'm going to do.

Nicole Z said...

L.O.V.E. Girl Scout cookies! I am definitely one of those people who will pull over/bust a "U"/barely avoid a collision to get some Girl Scout cookies. Dedication. Haha. Thin Mints are my fave but I also enjoy a nice box...or six...of Samoas as well :) Poor cookies, one box is lucky to make it a week with me, I'm such a sugar fiend!

I've had to cut back these past 3 weeks because I'm in training for a half maathon and while they're usually such a great treat, they're more hurtful than rewarding at this time :(

Heather said...

OMG. I love GS cookies and I can't find them!! I love the peanut butter chocolate and the short bread!

Rachel said...

Your kitchen looks like ours. We have so many cookies! I love it though :) And I am glad your cookies have the RIGHT names. Only silly places have Caramel Delites instead of Samoas.

littledaisymay said...

SO many cookies! We actually just bought two boxes today...Thin Mints and my fave, Samoas!

Lindsayb-mo said...

I love Girl Scout Cookies and my favorite is the Thin Mint kind. I haven't bought any yet this year. Much to my surprise, I might add! =)
Great post! Love it!!

Kassie said...

I am so obsessed with girl scout cookies!! My dad is worse than me though--he bought 16 boxes of Thin Mints! I think he's good for awhile. :)

Tina said...

Yuuuum!! I used to be a girl scout when I was little and those cookies are the besst! I always loved the shortbread :)

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Of course I bought Girl Scout cookies!! That's what made me fall off the wagon for lent! Ek! I'd have to say my favorite is the thin mints. Those and the tagalongs. YUM!

Kelsey Claire @Lavender, Leopard, and Lace said...

Ummm Samoa's is Gods gift to the cookie. They are amazing. No girl scouters have hit me up so I am without. When I see them at the grocery store in the coming weeks you know I am stocking up!

Caroline said...

I love Thin Mints... I want to try and make my own... I have yet to buy any... maybe tomorrow!! XO

Sam said...

Hehee! Love them all lined up! Man that must have been about $40 worth of Girl Scout cookies right?! Very generous of you guys! :)

My favorite are the thin mints, I bought 2 boxes... but now at least I know who to call when I want some more :p

Kaz and Amy said...

Those look so good espically considering I didn't buy any...Maybe I should tomorrow:) Lol!

Southern Cinderella said...

Girl Scout cookies are the best! Tagalongs are my favorite and I got 4 boxes!!! I am keeping two in the freezer for further in the year.

Carol Conway-Fleisher said...

Thin mints are my favorite however, I can't eat them any more since I have a wheat allergy. Bummer! :(

♥Aubrey said...

I'll take a box of SAMOAS off your hands :)- Lol

Katie said...

Tagalongs have always been my favorite!! Ate some of those this year :) I didn't even realize it was Girl Scout cookie season until I saw them outside of PetSmart. When I was a GS I used to hate saying, "Would you like to buy a box of GS cookies?" because I thought, 'duh... isn't it obvious?!' and my "elders" would always tell me it means a lot to people. Well.... now that I'm on the other side, I agree!! I walked up to the booth and no one asked me if I wanted a box!!!? I really wanted to try the new ones (LOVE!) so I bought ONE, but no more since they weren't very enthusiastic. HAHA

Happy cookie eating!

Sweet Simplicity said...

Thin mints and samoas are my faves! I ordered a box of each this year and I'm wishing I had ordered more!

Candice Pair said...

I havent had GS cookies in YEARS! Gosh...guess Im going to have to go get some now. Thanks hah!

Alyson said...

I love girl scout cookie time! My favorite is Thin Mints, but I was curious about the new flavor. Let us know what you think! And we have purchased too many boxes this year too-ha!

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

I loooove girl scout cookies!! One of my kids at school brought me a box of Thin Mint the other day and then I bought three boxes today! It's so hard to say no to those cute little faces and those yummy cookies!

Mateya said...

Oh goodness mine have not come in yet!!!! I am getting so excited...those look so yummy! I ordered the peanut butter patties, thin mints, and caramel delights (whoops!) :)

Sarah said...

Oh, I really didn't need to see this post...I LOVE the Caramel Delights...but didn't buy any this year. Wish I had a few right now!
Good luck with not eating them all!

siovhan said...

samoas own my heart forever. i also like thin mints and tagalongs.

i need to find more little scout girls and clean them out!

Al said...

I find it so cool that girl scout cookies exist!

its on my too do list to try them when i eventually get to America!

Sherrie said...

We bought 8 boxes this year and they are almost completely gone! Our favorites are definitely the thin mints.

Ashalee said...

Oh we've had our round already in our house! I've always been a lover of the Thin Mint but this years Very Berry cookies are so yummy and hard to pass up too! Enjoy!

Lil' Woman said...

I live with a girl scout so I was obligated but I controlled myself and only bought one box of peanut butter patties.

Lucy Marie said...

I bought 6 boxes ... thinmints and tagalongs from my niece. My inlaws picked them up for me and I should be getting them this afternoon! I cannot wait!

Jane said...

how have i not seen any girl scouts!? dying for a box of samoas!

Caroline said...

OMG! Yes! We just got our shipment in this week! Mason and I have been munching on Samoas and Thin Mints all weekend! Ugh, Girl Scouts need to time their cookie sales to not interfere with bikini season! ;)

Kelli Kegley said...

Oh my word! What torture! I would just die if I had that many in my house. I have no strength when it comes to cookies....or anything dessert if I'm honest.. haha

Kaitlin said...

Love Girl Scout cookies, and i love that they freeze so well. On Friday night we were at our outdoor shopping mall and the girl scouts where there doing this little dance rap routine, and my husband and I melted and were quickly checking our pockets for cash. So stinkin' cute.

Christa said...

Love girl scout cookies! My fav are the Carmel Delights!

MCW said...

Thank god they do not come knocking on our doors in NYC! And I have not seen any sales in my office...I cannot resist if they are offered!

Honey B. said...

Ohh Samoas, my friend....we didn't order ANY year this (quite a feat) but I did eat a roll of the shortbread cookies at my Mom's house...lol

Heather said...

I sadly didn't buy any this year, and I have no idea why! What's wrong with me?! Samoa's are my fave!

Emily said...

We've only seen Campfire cookies in Ballard. Where are your local Girl Scouts setting up shop? I love Tagalongs!!! What's the 2010 flavor?

Emma said...

I love Samoas... they are my favorite. My husband likes thin mints but I'm really weird about any mint flavored food that isn't gum. lol ;)

Mollie said...

OMG...Gabe is totally going to be the dad that buys a TON of cookies when he has a lil Girl Scout himself so she will win "most sold"!!! LOL!

Kristin @ the Waiting Game said...

I LOVE Thin Mints! I like to put them in the freezer for a couple of days then eat them!

Juggling Thoughts said...

We haven't...we've conquered our desire for girl scout cookies, haha!

the peanut-butter chocolate ones are my favorite!

Jamie said...

Samoas have a new flavor? I must hop to it! We didn't order any this year because I still have a box of thin mints (my husbands fav) sitting in the freezer from last year. However, this whole new samoa flavor has really got me going. I'm going to email my moms club and see if there are any girl scouts selling the remaining cookies. Delish! Thanks for sharing.

Allison said...

Haha, since I'm a teacher, they have been all over the place. I've just told them that I don't eat cookies. They are so yummy too!!

Chelle said...

Have you had any of the Girl Scout ICE CREAM?? Now that's some serious deliciousness!! They have Samoa. Think Girl Scout cookie out of the freezer, wrapped in ice cream goodness. TRY IT!!

Jax said...

Ohmygosh so yummy! I want some so badly! I didn't buy any this year b/c I guess I wasnt at the office when my coworkers daughter came around.. :( But, I plan to find some..somewhere.. and I will be fat and happy! Mmmm thin mints... :)

Jonathan & Megan Lenz said...

we bought 3 boxes..and i gave one to my dad because I knew my mom was not planning on buying any for them.. my favorites are thin mints. i put them in the freezer and enjoy them with a nice glass of milk! jonathan crushed and i mean crushed the peanut butter with chocolate cookies in about a week...

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

My husband bought a few boxes and he was such a good boy and ate ALL of them in 2 days. His figure is not harmed by them...but mine is, so I am so happy he ate them all before I got into them! :) Really took one for the team! :)
Extra crossfit for you! haha

Jennie said...

So you grew up in Midland?? Because I'm from Alpine which is only about 2 1/2 hrs from there, and I'm currently living in Lubbock, going to school here. What a small world!! And yes...girl scout cookies melt my heart and my mouth!! :) :)

OceanDreams said...

Girl scout cookies are so amazing, whenever I get them I can't get enough! I'm glad you got some yummieness!

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

I didnt buy ANY this year- pb patties are my fave!

The Wifey said...

Thinmints, of course!
Oh I was so mad! Girlscouts where selling on base and hubby bought a box and ate the whole thing.

I found it empty in the car and questioned him about it. "I paid for it!" <--- that was his reply. Boo. :(

Llama said...

I am so so upset that every girl scout decided to pass right by me for some reason this year! I am so super jealous! Have you ever put the thin mints in the freezer? They are amazing frozen! So jealous!!!

Natasha said...

Glad to know I am not the ONLY one who craved Kelsey... I stocked up on thin mints and TAGALONGS (my uber favorite)--put them in the freezer and they're better than heaven!

Miss Jody said...

Who doesn't like these morsels of heaven?!!

a H.I.T. said...

Can you believe that there are no local girl scouts in my area to sell us cookies?!

Annie said...

Samoas are my favorite! Your hubby is like mine....can't say no to a little fundraiser! He buys everything! Come's home from work with goodies all of the time!

Cassie said...

I've been able to resist so far-thank goodness I don't carry cash on me or I would have bought a ton of them since the girls hang around my wal-mart entrance!

Katie said...

omgoodness, girl scout cookies are THE DEVIL! they are FAR too dangerous to let anywhere NEAR my house ... good for you and your will-power (or maybe lacktherof :) )

ENJOY!!! PS Samoas are my fav too!!!

Jamie Pickle said...

Ooooh Girl Scout cookies. How I have a love/hate relationship with thee. We bought four boxes from our next door neighbor's daughter. Samoa's are my fav, soooo good!! The hubs said I didn't get his favorite (the shortbread cookies) but that doesn't stop him from getting a big glass of milk and some other cookies for dessert!

Kristin said...

Ummmmmm, I wanna come live in your kitchen!

Teresa said...

OMGoodnes!!!
That's alot of Girl Scout Cookies!!! I could eat an entire box of those samoas!!! Yummmm!
No...I haven't bought any GScout Cookies!
Greg and I are majorly trying to get our bods ready for Spring!!!
Why does everything yummmy have to enlarge the tummy???
Not fair.
I just don't know why God made it that way! ;o)
Just enjoy your cookies and workout a bit harder at Crossfit!

Miss you Sweetpea!

Amanda said...

Thanks for your sweet comment about my house!!! :)

Samantha said...

My, my, my that's a ton of cookies.

Angie S said...

Wow that is a ton of cookies...I love GS cookies. I bought some, gave a few to the kids, and put the rest in the freezer.

They are way to yummy and tempting, and I am about 7 pounds from my goal weight! Gotta skip them this year :)

Seriously I could eat a whole box!

Annie said...

i didn't buy any this year!
my sister did though and she brought me a box, it was my favorite kind samoa's! love them!! although it's so hard to eat just one when i want at least ten ;)
