girl scout cookies

oh dear, you probably thought i was selling samoas.   sorry!

my intention was to let you in on one of my personal dilemmas.
last week my loving husband was lecturing sharing with me
his problem with the girl scouts.

how could anyone have a conflict with the girl scouts?"

i told him i was completely conflicted out on this matter, because i
had already sponsored a couple of chairs at our local girl scout fund
raiser, which his darling niece was 'chairing.'

what i didn't admit was that our freezer was filled with thin mints
and samoas.

anyway, after wise and precious husband instructed shared his
thoughts on the girls scouts, we were hanging out with our girl
scouts.  the youngest one, who had brought over girl scout cookies
to her father's dismay, scolded her big brother.

"hey, big guy, go easy on those thin mints!  they're not oreos."


"so whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for
God's glory."  1 corinthians 10:31

It's good to see a post from you. You're one of my favorite reads.

We need the Girl Scouts. Or at least I do! And they don't seem to go door to door now (like I did back in the day when I was a Scout), which vexes me. I would love them to deliver directly to my door!

Your daughter is so right! You can't just run down to the grocery and purchase a fix. I need my Girl Scout fix just like everyone else...well, almost like everyone else, Miss Freezer's Full of Girl Scout Cookies. So fun to find you here. Always so fun!

Well I remember my days of being scared to death, going door to door with my cookies and lots of lovely people were the norm, but I remember one lady who stood and screamed at me for ringing the doorbell. I didn't last much longer as a girl scout. My Dad bought all of the rest of my cookies and I quit. Then I grew up. I always buy anything any kid brings to my door. I would have never made a salesman. :)
I am glad you have your freezer full.
I didn't live in that neighborhood, but I heard through the grapevine at school. Guess who's doorbell became the neighborhood door ditch house? Kids have their own form of justice.

I have yet to find any Girl Scouts selling cookies, but that's probably just as well. Summer's coming.

Oh I am laughing so hard. Our 23 year old got up the other morning and starting yelling "who ate my girl scout cookies?" He thought he had hid them well enough...well it wasn't the other brothers or even me...mainly not us because we hadn't found them. It was DAD!! It was amazing how upset he was over the few thin mints that were gone.
All my boys start ordering them is soooooooooooo funny and we have never had a girl scout in our own home, but I remember the day I sold them.

Sonja said...

I never sold them, but it has been INTENTIONAL over the past many years, that I smile and encourage the sellers outside the grocery store, while NOT buying thin mints!!! I can't have those cookies close by, can't do it... no store sells anything as good. :)
You are really strong to have stash in your freezer. That freezer would be drawing me like a magnet!!

I love Thin Mints! They are my favorite. We have a box in the pantry right now. I used to sell them when I was a young girl. :)

Gloria said...

Our granddaughter Zoe is now a Brownie...:) She is loving it!

Our cookies came in today. Not the best thing for a diet. But...OH my, they are SO good. We look forward to getting them!!

Our favs are the same, Thin Mints and Caramel Delights (what they are named here in California). YUM!!!

Happy Monday to you!

My oldest did join up with the girls guides and was there for a few years. She didn't like the person who managed them and ended up leaving when she was about 12. The youngest tried it for 1 week, then quit. I'm so glad I didn't buy her a uniform:-)

Jen said...

I didn't order a single cookie this year. It's been so difficult not even tasting a single cookie. But, that is the problem. You can't eat one. Or two. Or three. It's the whole box. At one time.

Now I want a thin mint.

Hi Lea - cute comment from the little one and a freezer full of cookies? Now ice cream...that I could understand.

Auntie Cake said...

No cookie sellers to our door either. But my husband doesn't know that I know, that he buys them at work. They never make it home with him. On his calendar, in big letters, it says, "Girl Scout cookie delivery day" so I know he is buying!

Luckily those babies only come out once a year!

Anita said...

I promised one guy that I'd get at least 6 boxes of cookies from him when the time came; and now that the time is here, he hasn't called. I think he forgot about my promise. Should I call him? Hmmm... I'm torn. :)
