An Illusion....

You know when something seems like a really cute, really fun idea in your head?
Like making Christmas sugar cookies with your husband, 
decorating them all cute and giving them away to neighbors and friends.


Fast Forward 5 hours later-11:00pm

Went to three different stores to find a freaking rolling pin
Used way too much flour making the cookies super dry.
Therefore too embarrassed to give them away.
Therefore very unmotivated to ice all 100 cookies this recipe made 
all so we could eat them ourselves.
Therefore making the ugliest sugar cookies you ever saw.

Ben and I are about the least artistic people you could imagine (our poor child).
We had no where near enough tupperware to put all the cookies in
so we put them in zip-lock bags which smeared the icing everywhere anyways. 

We still have about 50 very dry very ugly cookies sitting on our counter.
I think Ben has eaten 1, I've had about 15.

At least it makes for some cute pics I could post on Instagram 
to at least make others believe we were having fun doing this cute Christmas activity
(That is the problem of social media HA)
and we could not stop laughing at how bad we were at decorating.

All in all-sugar cookies are the worst. Bah Humbug.
One of my favorites.

Paha, I thoroughly enjoyed this. And I am impressed with your honesty in documenting how many cookies you've eaten ;) This is exactly how things would turn out if I tried. Haha

Haha, this is totally real life! I always think things sound like a great idea - and I'm never as good at them as I want to be :-)
