Cookies! Cookies!

In honor of my new blog header (that Almanzo was up till two in the morning fixing after I botched it on Photoshop…don’t ask), and because you guys are so supportive every day, I want to bake you some cookies!

The winner can choose between brown butter chocolate chip, sugar or oatmeal chocolate chip (can be made vegan if you prefer). Just leave a comment on this post telling me one GOOD thing about your day. It could be anything (for example: you packed a really awesome lunch and can’t wait to eat it). Just make it positive!
Like always, I’ll pick a random winner tonight by 10 PST.

Did 2 miles along the ocean front here in my beautiful Downeast Maine seaside village. The sun dappled across my path, wildflowers, butterflies, and the smell of salt water were my companions.

    Hi Jenna!
    I’m a relatively new reader and huge fan. You’re awesome, and I love the new header.

    Here’s why my day is super fantastic: By 10:00 am, I had already run 6.7 miles, ate breakfast, done a load of laundry, made my brother breakfast, packed him a lunch, drove him to school, spent an hour feeding/grooming our horses, and taken a shower. And the BEST part is that it’s still only 10:25. I’ve seriously never been this productive, ever.

    Jamba Juice has a promotion for their new coffee and tea smoothies today, $1 for the 16oz. size. I got the chai one, brought my own banana and granola to top it with, sat at a table outside in the sunshine and dug in with a spoon. It was a yummy breakfast!

    Too bad you only ship to the US, but I’ll tell you the good thing about my day anyway, cause I’m cool like that.

    After a couple of hectic days, today I decided to just sit down on my couch, with a steaming cup of cinnamon leaf tea, my two cats and a book of your book list and just spent the whole afternoon reading in complete silence.
    It was awesome.

    One good think about today was my lunch. I was trying to make this “Protein Pizza” thats basically a pizza on egg whites instead of a crust. I didn’t have enough eggs I found out and it became more of a pizza omelet than a pizza but it was amazing. Definitely one of the best omelets I have ever had!

    It’s one day closer to Friday which is a big fat positive in my book!! And I had a good laugh at myself when I realized that I had put my underwear on inside out (this is what happens when you dress yourself at 530am in the dark) and proceeded to undress in work bathroom and about fell over into the stall door!! πŸ™‚ Can we say loud boom…thank goodness nobody was in there (double positive!).

  • Cynthia (It All Changes)

    My yoga studio had a deal this morning on Living Social for 20 classes for $25, which is AMAZING by itself, but if I get 3 people to also buy in to the deal I’ll get it for free! I have 2 and a verbal commitment, plus my co-worker signed up…so there are at least 4 more people that will get to experience the wonderful world of yoga in addition to a bunch more classes than I expected to take this fall! Such a great morning.

    I have to pick just one good thing? Today I figured out a web design problem at work that had been bugging me all week, which was gratifying. In at a close second was riding my bike home for lunch to vegan mac and cheeze and two sweet dogs.

    And if I win (ihopeiwinihopeiwinihopeiwin) I want the oatmeal chocolate chip, vegan style!

  • Stephanie

    Two weeks ago my bf and I unexpectedly found out we were expecting a visit from the stork.

It’s such a bright spot EACH day!

    Great header! I love love love that picture of you doing warrior pose at Yellowstone!

    Good part about my day? Several things. I woke up early and watched Boy Meets World while cooking breakfast. Also, I had completely forgotten about the office party this afternoon and that I had to bring something to share, so on my short 45 minute lunch break I rushed home, threw together the contents of two leftover brownie and cake mixes in a bowl with the rest of my leftover yogurt and baked the batter in mini muffin tins. I was only five minutes late getting back to work, and I was able to eat lunch, bring something without rushing to the store, plus I cleaned out some of my pantry!

    The best thing about my day was my 3 year old son hugging me tight and telling me to have a good day! If I could have bottled that moment, I surely would have πŸ™‚

    I met my boyfriend during lunch at the local Farmer’s Market – and in the middle of the crazy Midtown NYC traffic we were transported to the country as we tasted a new variety of apples, popped fresh green peas in our mouths, and sipped on freshly crushed apple cider.

  • Ashley

    It’s a rainy, dreary day here in NC (and we’ve had one of the hottest summers on record so far)… and that’s GOOD because it’s perfect for peppermint tea sipping and book reading (when I get home from work).

    The best thing about my day happened when I least expected it. I had to go to the hospital for an EEG (this scary test where they put electrodes on your skull to detect brain activity) because I had a seizure on Monday. I was really dreading it, but the technician performing my test was an avid bird-lover and photographer; she calmed me down with her beautiful photos and the happiness that was obvious in her voice when she told me all about her bluebirds. I didn’t expect to, but I really enjoyed the test!

    Best part of my day so far? As cheesy as it sounds – reading your blog and all of the great comments.

    Clearly lots of people want your cookies with real butter! I’m so with you on the post about this being a healthy blog because you use REAL ingredients.

    I love being woken up by my best friend on 4 legs! When my alarm goes off in the morning, he runs to my side of the bed, scratches a little bit and then I drag him up into bed. Little Riley will burrow down right next to my tummy for some early morning tummy rubs (aka “Love Puppy”). That is about the only thing that makes my alarm go off in the morning, okay!

    Aside of the happiness that Thursday brings (it’s almost Friday, after all), I think the highlight of my day so far has been slowly sipping my coffee while I work. Despite having to work my way through a couple of client hang-ups, that mug held my sanity this morning. =)

    August 19, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    Wow. Everyone wants cookies.

    Well, so do I, so one good thing is that Laura and I get to have an evening picnic listening to the Jazz Orchestra and watching the Colorado Ballet Company. While the food will only be grocery deli chicken and salads (our house is torn up renovating for our baby due in November), this will sure beat the heck out of the crumby (pun partially intended) mood I’m in currently.

    Up at 7am, made breakfast, took daughter to school, went for a 30 minute walk, cleaned house, folded laundry, did some massive shopping at Target….ALL WHILE I AM 5 DAYS PAST 40 WEEKS PREGNANT in this summer HEAT.

    I swam about 1000m in the Pacific ocean today, and it was cold, and ROUGH (2+ ft swells), BUT I DID IT. And I’m getting used to it. I didn’t freak out much at all.

    I had an amazing wrap at lunch today – it made me think of your blog post about simple foods and tastes – it was soooooooo good! Some hummus, sundried tomato pesto, chopped kalamata olives, Roma tomatoes and orange bell pepper wrapped up with some arugula in lavash bread.

    I’m not hungry, but I totally wish I could have another one because the flavor was so good! Made for a very happy few moments right in the middle of the day. πŸ™‚

    The best part of my day, by far, was my breakfast. I had oatmeal with 1/4 goat milk, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/4 water, peanut butter, a bunch of delicious raspberries, and half of a banana. I have never tried goat milk before, and I am not sure I would drink it straight (tasted a bit like liquid goat cheese), but in oats, amazing. Seriously, try it.

    There have been so many good things today! It’s difficult to pick just one.

    Let’s see. Walking out to my garden (my first attempt at a vegetable garden), in the early morning and seeing all the ripe cherry tomatoes and big boys just waiting for me. Thinking about how good they will taste with the basil growing there. Feeling proud of myself and also feeling part of Nature (with a capital “N”!).

    And then seeing the most magnificent sunrise I’ve seen in sometime. It was truly a spectacle. It made me say, “Oh!” outloud.

    And those two things happened before 6:30 in the morning.

    one good thing about my day? i picked 150+ lbs of harelson apples and brought them to a food shelf. it’s amazing how little healthy, fresh food is available to those that rely on food shelves for breakfast, lunch and dinner. it feels good to make an impact on that!

    now, if you could bake me GLUTEN FREE chocolate chip cookies, i’d think you were the best baker ever and i’d love you eternally. (otherwise, they’ll be gifted to friends and family.)

    One good thing about my day today is the feeling I experience right after finishing up an intense yoga class where I release all my anxiety and frustrations. I feel so light, free spirited, with only one thing on my mind, what yummy goodness and I going to whip up for myself for dinner when I get home. Its the only part of my day where happy and comforting thoughts of food are on my mind and the stress of finding the perfect job, a place to live and what purpose I have in life have all vanished. πŸ™‚

    I left Costco with a huge grin on my face after hearing a women say “$10.50? Oh hell yeah!” I also saw another lady with headphones in rocking out in the aisle. Both women brightened my day! Now, to conquer my 5 mile tempo run!

    Ohh Photoshop, how i love and loathe thee.

    I’ve been eyeing (drooling …) over your butter cookies ever since you made them.

    Today I was walking home from work and decided to take a shortcut through a local bike path. I looked up at the sun at one point, through the tall grass and trees and wild flowers, and though I was tired, stressed and had a million thoughts running through my head, I had a moment where I just thought about how thankful I was to be enjoying the sun in such a beautiful place, and able to walk back to my apartment. It was a nice moment. I’m going to have more of those, I think. (It looks like you celebrated life today, too.)

    The best part of my day was meeting the students that will be in my classroom this year. I teach 5th grade special education and I cannot explain the excitement and pure joy that each one of these wonderful students bring to the classroom. Never a dull moment!

    I just got back from vacation and went on a major grocery expedition to prepare for school starting and to replace everything I needed from being gone for a week and a half. I love grocery shopping. I also had an amazing dinner of wings that were sooo hot my nose was running after the first one and lips were bright red and burned for almost an hour afterwards. Delicious.

    The best part of my day was waking up before the sun and driving out to the most beautiful dirt road for a run with my cross country team. 65 minutes of nothing but rolling green hills, a perfect sunrise, and the sound of my feet on the gravel roads. It was amazing πŸ™‚

    I walked to the store in the pouring rain today, even though I was drenched from head to toe I thuroughly enjoyed it! I felt like I was 6 years old again playing in our hometown flooded gutters on storm day!

    I would love some homemade oatmeal raisin cookies!

    Oh how I’d love to win! TWO good things that happened to me today included spending time catching up with some of my favorite people–my sisters. We just took a trip to Paris at the end of July and I was hoping that we would still keep in good touch because we all have our own lives that make it difficult to be in each other’s daily lives. One is in London and we talked through Skype and the other in Charleston. Just talking to them made my day a lot brighter!

    Today was a very long day preparing quizzes and stuff for my (medical) microbiology classes that I teach at our community college in Indianapolis. The good thing about my day was having dinner with my wife and 8-year-old daughter at one of the best pizza places (Pizzology….Google it for those of you coming here for the Super Bowl next year) in Indianapolis. The kid had awesome spaghetti and meatballs. The wife and I shared a sausage (house made), onion and fennel pizza. Amazing! To top it off, we had mango sorbet and cappuccino gelato for dessert. Did I mention the gelato was studded with chocolate covered espresso beans?

    It’s going to be really hard to find anything good about my day. But I’d probably say coming home to a quiet house, with the rain pouring outside and eating dinner with my hubby and two doggies πŸ™‚
