  3. :-D With my love of cookies - I am the cookie monster!!!!!!!!! Luckily I know portion control!

  4. Number one all the way, of course, Jack. But just to be clear, do "tastes" have calories? Spoonfuls? Cookie dough? rrr. I am not dreading the holiday season. Nope, I am all psyched up to be a really good girl. Honestly, sometimes it crosses my mind when I am tempted by some lame thought like, "Just one cookie won't hurt...", I think of my blogger friends, and how you guys can stay strong. Then I break off just one little piece...

  5. Answering "C" to every question is bad on this quiz, right?

  6. I think the answers are A, B, and C. If I am right do I get a cookie?

  7. Oh, dear. I'm cryin'! :-D I have to share this.
