This was, admittedly, a recent addition to the bucket list. I had been perusing old posts on Tina's blog, Carrots and Cake, saw a post about a cookie exchange she attended, and decided that I HAD to host something like that. How could you go wrong?
Friends + cookies = success.
Some friends from Marquette, the Buffett crew, and a few grade school friends all brought cookies to pass. I asked each person to bring 2 dozen cookies, 3 dozen if they were baking on behalf of a significant other as well. We had more than enough cookies for each person to assemble a plate to take home and there were some left overs too. Check out the spread:
After filling up a plate of everyone's cookies to take home, we ordered some pizza and played "Celebrity" (a three-round take on charades) while munching on sweets.
The night was a success, the most difficult part was finding common availability in busy December schedules. I look forward to doing it again in the future sometime! Happy Christmas, everyone!
