Vitamin C and Cookies

Happy Wednesday! (Almost typed Monday. Yikes.)

You know what Wednesday is, right? Hump day.

Who watched Glee last night?
If you ask me, which you didn't but I don't even care today, I thought the episode was eh okay. Definitely not what I would have expected for the season finale. Somehow is just felt too...normal? I didn't feel the tension! But I did like the songs, especially 'To Sir With Love'. And it was great to hear them sing Journey again! I rock out to 'Don't Stop Believin' in my car on a daily basis, so it'll be nice to have a few other Journey tunes for my car-aoke.
What'd you guys think? If I had to rate last night's episode, I'd probably give it 3.5 stars out of 5.

In Running news:
I was all prepared to run this morning, I had laid my clothes out last night and everything. Unfortunately, I woke up this morning feeling awful. My throat hurts so much I can't even swallow. I had been feeling a little under the weather the last few days, but I was just blaming my allergies! Sorry allergies, that wasn't nice of me. I'm not full-blown sick just yet, so maybe I can still nip it in the bud.

Last year in Tennessee, I got sick a whopping 10 times during the school year. TEN times. Like, that's ridiculous! My mom told me to stop kissing all the boys, but I can assure you (and her) that wasn't the cause!  In any case, those 10 times were miserable. Even with an IV's worth of Emergen-C at all times, I was still catching a cold as soon as I recovered from the last one. And then, I got the honest to goodness FLU during midterms. Super fun.

Anyway, since I've lived in Oregon and gone to school in Washington, I've been sick with a cold just once. Yep. One time! I guess it's two now though. As much as I'd love to postpone my final evaluation meeting, I can't. If only it had waited until tomorrow so I could say I survived the school year with near perfect health.

Long story short: I didn't run this morning! Booo. If I don't deteriorate through the day, I'll probably attempt a short run this afternoon. Maybe by then it won't be raining anymore, too.

Operation Cookie 4.0 is underway.

I stopped in at BB&B yesterday for another spatula, and this bucket was just calling my name. 

How could I let these cookie cutters continue on without a loving home?

What is this?
It looks kind of like a submarine. 

So. Excited. Cowboy boots! 
I may have squealed when I saw this one. Maybe just a little. Good thing no one else was home.

Last night I made my dough, rolled and cut 24 cookies, and mixed up my icing colors!
I'm not going to reveal details but here are two little tidbits:
  • White, red, and orange
  • Scalloped and regular circles

What, no crazy shapes? I know, I know. I wanted to make cowboy boots so badly, but I decided to stick with my original plan! Pictures soon!

In closing...
OPI's You Make Me Vroom

Ps. Don't forget to send in your questions!

Where did you get that gorgeous ring?!?!

I felt the same way about Glee! It was cute and fun, but just not finale material... I don't know.

I think the first cookie cutter is a heart with an arrow through it... maybe?
