In our neck of the woods, Girl Scout cookies sales started this Saturday at 9:00 a.m. sharp.
As many of you know, I am a Girl Scout leader and my daughter and I have no qualms about stepping up to your front door and tempting you to break your New Year's resolution with our sugary treats.
We have found that many of you have Thin Mint habits dating back to the days when you were a kid and didn't worry about how many grams of fat you were about to ingest. You crumble so easily.
I know some of you dread our presence on your door step and you hide shaking behind your curtains until we retreat down the walk way. But most of you welcome us with open arms, and to you we say thanks!
The girls not only use selling cookies as a means to earn money but they are also learning a thing or two in the process. The girls learn how to communicate effectively, set goals, manage money, and be assertive.
Did you know that our council sells boxes of cookies for Operation Thin Mint ? OTM is a program set up by Girl Scouts to allow costumers to purchase boxes of cookies to be sent to our men and women serving in the military in places like Iraq and Afghanistan (an other bases over seas). Living in a military town this is a popular option and something we are proud of!
So, what is your favorite Girl Scout cookie???
Now I need to thank a few bloggers for bestowing the following awards to little ole me.
