Minimal Self-Control...

So I have never been a big sweets person or I didn't think that I was until this weekend. My sister was in this weekend and we had a great time. We went to the mall and there it was...the Girl Scout cookie stand. I was hesitant to walk close for fear of buying hounded by the sweet girls in their uniforms, and sure enough I was suckered into a sale. I knew I was sold when the little girl behind the stand said that counting the cash helped her math skills. After giving her some cash she marked the receipt and counted out my change and thanked me for supporting her troop. I think that counting the proceeds probably did help their math skills even if it didn't I believed it. Growing up we never ate Girl Scout cookies and I didn't even think that I liked them. I ended up buying two boxes, a box of the Tagalongs and a box of the Minty ones. I don't eat minty things but I thought that the BF may like them. He like me wasn't crazy about them so I took them to work and my cube co-workers loved them.

I ended up liking them so much that I couldn't stop eating them. I usually have control about things like that but I went to go and grab one after work and I was shocked when I looked in the box.

3 days...1 cookie left

On a non-chocolate moment...UK Basketball won the SEC Championship in a nail biter on Sunday. It made for great chatter on TV, the blogs, and radio everywhere. Driving to work this morning, the local channels are still talking about it and the city of Lexington is gearing up for the first round of the NCAA on Thursday. 

My sister and I had a fantastic weekend, and I was sad to see her go on Sunday. We enjoyed our time together and I am super excited for  her to come to Lexington this Summer. She had her first Lilly Pulitizer experience this weekend at the Peppermint Palm and went home with some super cute Lilly things. I even picked up a few things for myself this weekend and I can't wait for the weather to get warmer so I can wear them. I can't describe how excited I am for Summer, but I have listed my top reasons below.

Reasons MKH is so excited for Summer:
1. Flip flops
2. No more ice on the Honda's windshield
3. Patio dining
4. Bright colored clothing

There are many more reasons but I thought I would limit the list to four. I hope everyone has had a great start to the week. I am already excited for the weekend and am ready for some major R&R. 

Happy Tuesday,

The BF's daughter...she was ready for her close-up:)
