Karen & Shaelyn recently attended a cookie kick off event for Brownie Girl Scout Troop 10012 and they made it into the Concord Insider. They will be beginning to sell Girl Scout Cookies on January 4th. The girls of Shaelyn's troop are trying to earn enough money for a sleep over at the Museum of Science this spring. How fun would that be!? I have to figure out how to be an honorary chaperon for that night of fun.
I'm completely pimping these cookies because Shaelyn is going to be the best Junior Bridesmaid ever, and who doesn't love Girl Scout cookies? They are $3.50 per box for all of your favorites: Lemon Chalet Cremes, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos (Mmmmm!), Samoas (Mmmmmm!), All Abouts, Sugar Free Chocolate Chips, Tagalongs (Mmmmmm!), and the famous Girl Scout Thin Mints. I am participating in the "Gift of Caring" program where I buy the boxes of cookies and then they will get sent to the Council for the Cookie Project, which includes sending cookies to soldiers. So, since I am trying to remain able to fit into my wedding dress, it is best that the cookies never get delivered to my house.
If you are interested in helping Shaelyn's troop out, or the Gift of Caring program, send me an e-mail and I will get you in touch with Karen. I've already gotten Michael to commit to 6 boxes for the Gift of Caring project.
It just makes me want to break into song-
I've got something in my pocket, and it belongs across my face. I keep it very close to me in the most important place...
