First & foremost... i am wondering if i can get coffee by funnel this morning!
a BIG... direct... funnel straight to my mouth!
sheesh... 
are we tired or what!

Today... lil bit (my trusty sidekick) & i will be baking... i MUST have lost my mind...
i am NOT a "baker"... cook... anything of that sort!
But yummy... soft... gingersnap cookies MUST be made!
My sister's recipe... they knock my socks off!

This year teachers will be getting those knock your socks off cookies...
those neat (i think) book thing things i made... and Barnes & Noble gift cards!
All i know... i LOVE book stores... could bathe there... hoping they do too! 

I got a really "funny" email this morning!
My husband does not read my blog so i can spill the beans here...
Sophia... shhhh... it will be fun!
I got a message from AT&T about my NEW cell phone number...
i DO NOT currently have AT&T...
but if it is what i think it is...
my hubby did VERY well...
he must want SOMETHING...
:)
any guesses on what i think he got me?
it was on my list!  

Here's to Wednesday... that glorious hump day!
Can i get a whoop whoop!

Good luck making the cookies!! Growing up I wanted to be a teacher solely because they got a lot of presents at Christmas time!

That's funny about the e-mail..hopefully he got what you wanted!

i need that recipe! gingersnap cookies remind me of my grandma...she didn't make those from scratch, but i always remember her having a box...please send when you have a chance!!

as a former teacher, i most definitely approve of your thoughtful, generous gift!!

happy hump to you!! hope the oven stays full & warm of deliciousness all day:)

I also got an email the other day confirming an order...one that I didn't make, so I asked my husband and it was a Christmas gift for me!...how funny!

Lizzz said...

Ahhhhhhhh!! An iphone!!!!! I am grinning from ear to ear for you!! I sure hope I'm right. :D

I love hearing about your days! <3

Lizzz said...

P.S. I'd say that's the COOLEST gift a teacher would get! How creative! (Better than a box of chocolates she probably won't eat. That's what I always got my teachers! Haha. ;))

Ooooohhhh... Is it an iPhone? My sister just got one and LOVES it! In fact, she doesn't ever quit talking about it! I'm so jealous! We don't have At&t service in this remote part of the world! :o)

Happy ringtones!

You're totally getting an iphone....and I think I am too. I received my ever so lovely and artsy package from you and the bangle is to die for. You are the best...and so deserving of an iphone.

Honorary Indian said...

Oh, I that's totally cool that you got a sneak peek about your Christmas gift...

Way to go, AT&T...

And, way to go HUBBY for the thoughtfulness.

Just ate some gingerbread cookies myself. I bet yours were just as delish!

LuLu said...

I'm still up and so tired, thought blogging would inspire me... :o) which it did perk me up... are you getting an iphone? oh good golly that would be so COOL! are you trying to make me cry- baking I haven't even begun to bake, do you think Santa will eat store bought cookies? That can't happen I would feel guilty in '09! Gosh I guess I need to bake... yours sound yummy.
Have fun,
LuLu, WHOOP WHOOP for wednesday. I

LuLu said...

LOL!!! Really hard!!! that was me this morning trying to make sandwiches for the girls for school! I used all the bread and didn't realize it! They took flour tortilla pbj! Hope the teachers didn't see! What a nut I am!

MamaMia said...

What a great gift. Sorry AT&T spoiled it for you. Are you a good actress?

Book stores are the best! Former teacher here too and an A+ for you on gift giving.

I'm in the same "not a baker or cook" camp with you...we got to stick together. ;)

What a great hubby...I hope he realizes he will never have another conversation with you again unless he calls your phone...as it will be forever in your hands and at your ear!!

LOVE those book marks..what is at the top of them? Great idea for a teacher, practical and special all at the same time, good think'n.
