We All Need a Cookie

**Remember- Blond Duck Confessions Friday! Want to know who Ben is and why I got married at 21? Want to know why I'm obsessed with pie? Are you curious about the cookie stealing bunny? Leave a question in the comments and I'll answer them!

And now, for our post:





There are times in life when we all need a little something.




For the days when mooses won't even murmur a comforting word,



When everyone's trying to get in your space and shatter your dreams,



And the cinnamon rolls are all gone from the freezer and the oven is cold and dark,



You need one of these.







When you chew off your favorite toy's arm,



Fall a bit in the race against time that replays day after day after day,




And spend your days fighting corporate foes,



You need one of these.





And when the skies shine down on you,




When every step is a twirl,




And when you're finally being treated like the prince or princess you deserve,






Then you need one of these. Maybe two or three.




For no matter what size, shape, age or gender,




Critter, person, or baked-goods stealer,

There is one thing on which we can all agree:




Even the mashed cookies in the corner are a tasty treat.





So critters, friends and loved ones all,

Join me for a cookie won't you?




After all, it is the perfect day for one.

Or two.

Or three.



Back off, cookie-stealing bunny.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! Tomorrow we have a new Twirl with awards for some dear Invisible Friends! Will we find out what's in the envelope? What is Vivi's evil Dad and Mrs. Angelson up to? Who knows?!?

Well, I do.

Anyway, Thursday we have low-fat (and TASTY) chicken pot pies and Friday, the Blond Duck confessions! Stay tuned!

kathy said...

Ummm, where's the recipe? ;) Loved this post - I was smiling and by the end, I went right along with you and said, "back off, cookie stealing bunny!"

Fun post -thanks for the smiles and the "amen, sister" moments

3 Bay B Chicks said...

I have to agree with Kathy. Loved the pictures, but where is the recipe? :) Even sans recipe, I'll join you for a cookie any day of the week.

A couple of questions about the photos:

What is the crazy contraption that you are standing in? Also, the photo of you in the big, white mattress pad...is that from Halloween? What are you? A marshmallow?

All in all, a great post.

-Francesca

PS: Glad to see that you received the New Year's Award. We made that one up!

blueviolet said...

I must have the recipe. Now that you've got us all excited to eat one, we can't even eat one!

TavoLini said...

Agreed!! Cookies are necessary, just like pizza and sunny days. Tavo made a giant batch last night, with extra chocolate chips :)

I love your pictures!!

Debbie said...

A good cookie can heal so many wrongs!

Sara said...

Cute pictures! I agree, cookies can brighten up even the worst days.

Katherine Aucoin said...

You're right about cookies. Very uplifing post and I think considering what gets thrown in our face with the news media these days, we need you and your posts...and a couple of cookies too!

Ronnica said...

One of my sons gave one of his sisters a brown bunny puppet for Christmas. Another brother stole it, and was wandering around the house, helping the bunny steal random things. I nearly choked when our bunny stole a candy bar and then tried to steal a cup of coffee, but ended up wearing it. Good thing he was brown. I thought of your cookie stealing bunny. Keep the coffee away from him, because apparently, bunnies also like coffee!

Jane said...

Small House said...

Oh my word, I just love reading your blog. You are one funny chick!!
And I still want a cookie. I made snickerdoodles last thrusday, I had to give them to people, and they had the consistancy of a biscuit. Consider yourself a lucky baker. I am not!
Have a good day.

Awe, now I really want a cookie. If you are a big pie fan, have you seen the movie, The Waitress? It's all about a women who bakes the most amazing pies and then created new ones every time something happens in her life. You need to check it out if you haven't seen it already.

Shalee- Be Speechless said...

The Sugar Fairy said...

Is that a picture of you when you were little, dressed up as a princess?

Would you believe it, i'm actually making cookies today! Great minds think alike;)

Diana said...

Ahhh no I don't need a cookie this week! That said, I probably wouldn't kick one of those bad boys out of my mouth...

Yum!

Grace said...

i'll take any reason to eat a cookie or 12, regardless of how they look. any reason. for example, today i had a cookie because it's tuesday. :)
and yes, of course you can enter your awesome ode to cinnamon toast in my little blog event!

Julie Schuler said...

Indeed! Hurrah for cookies. Especially something eaten daintily, like petit fours at tea, but not at high tea, that would be vulgar.

Bunny said...

Love that cookie stealing bunny!

Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella said...

That cookie stealing bunny is just so cute-which is probably why he or she gets away with it! Love the princess pic too :)

Lori said...

I need to munch on one of those, if only in my imagination. Great Post. You have a supercharged imagination!

Michelle said...

Okay, that just got my stomach rumbling BIG TIME. Everytime I came upon the cookie picture...rumble, rumble. I 100% agree with you on this! :)

Debra said...

OMG! This is too funny. My 41 year old hubby and 13 year old son got in the biggest fight yesterday over a cookie. No kidding! Will be blogging about the episode this week. Too darn funny not to share! I hope you get a chance to visit.

I love cookies too. Your blog is always so cute. I've fallen off of an exercise ball & hit my head on the stove. Never use an exercise ball on the floor, in the kitchen. I learned the hard way. haha.

I need a cookie! I had to deal with corporate foes all day. :( Hey, so, sorry to hear you are allergic to chocolate. That is a huge bummer. :( Unfortunately I don't think those wafers come chocolate free.

Cookie stealing bunny. I think we have one of those. I ask my husband where the cookies went and he never knows. It must be the bunny.

Pennies In My Pocket said...

Kimberly said...

I agree that days when the cinnamon rolls are all gone from the freezer and the oven is cold and dark, are quite sad one, and a cookie would definitely help! :o)

Have a fabulous day!!!

Hey there Duckie,
Love your blog, and thanks so much for stopping by mine! I don't use Wordpress, I use Squarespace, so I'm not sure of the template option :( Sorry I couldn't be more help. I'll be back to keep reading, keep it up!

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

I guess you always have to guard your cookies with the Cookie Stealing Bunny around.

Lisa said...

Oh how I just love this post.

thepreppyprincess said...

Oh Miss Duck, this is such an awesome post, we loved it! "Back off Cookie-stealing Bunny" brought us the biggest smile... thank you!

Grins & Giggles, we must go read Twirl,

VintageChicChick said...

Aw, a cookie! Yum! Though I'm on my annual New Year's resolutiong diet, so I'm trying to refrain...

Jan said...

A lovely post, and great photos, Duckie.

Dreaming Outloud said...

thanks for the hello! thought I'd return the favor =] I've never seen a real moose before (or one in an actual photo) so I thought I'd comment! We don't get many moose here in FL.

Melissa said...

Cute, cute post. I just can't get enough of that cookie stealing bunny! So funny! Was your moose picture taken in Alaska? It looks very similar to a place I went a few times while we were living there.
