Thank you Girl Scouts

It's that time of year again and sure enough there are three boxes of Girl Scout cookies on our snack table at work. Monday when I stopped by the grocery store a little blonde asked me if I'd like to buy cookies. Thank you adorable little girl, but I don't need more lard on these thighs to further impend my running. It's hard enough as it is.

I will however, politely hand you $1 for your trouble and not take any cookies in return. When faced with temptation, sometimes you just have to throw a buck at it and run inside to buy your spinach and red peppers, convincing yourself they're just as good as thin mints.

LOL. Good call. Don't know if I woulda been able to resist the thin mints though!

I have not given in yet this year either. We'll see how long I last.

Depending on the day it's either Tagalongs or Samos for me.

I've dodged the cookies this year, thankfully (so far). Dropping a couple of bucks and walking away without cookies is the way to go, if you ask me.

So true. I lack much of your willpower, though, especially with the supercute girl scouts; I can usually rationalize buying them if I come straight home and stick them in the freezer. Frozen thin mints = awesome in the summer. Or any time, really.
