Ginger Cookies, Snow, & a Joke

Happy Weekend Everyone!!

I would like to take a minute to point out that there are light flurries in my blog's forecast for the next few weeks.  Do you see the pretty little snow flakes falling down my page?!?  Every time I see the snow I eep like a little girl!  The snow is thanks to the lovely Kim from the blog SassyUptownChic.  Check her out, she's pretty awesome! 

Do you see the Renuzit?  It's one of 22 laying around my apt.  Finding it in the pic made me LOL!
I'm spending my Friday night very low key.  I already read through half a Glamour magazine, drank a glass and a half of delicious red wine, and baked a whole batch of homemade ginger snap cookies.  So I have date nights with myself.  Big deal!  LMF says it's good for you!  So you want to hear my secret?  I didn't make the cookies completely from scratch.  I cheated...but, just a little.  

All you need is one box of gingerbread cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, and some Sugar in the Raw for this holiday deliciousness.  I mix everything together except for the sugar until it's completed blended.  I then do the double spoon trick and lay out the mix in tablespoon scoops on a buttered cookie sheet.  Then sprinkle some Sugar in the Raw (I swear by Sugar in the Raw.  I refuse to consume regular sugar.  It's so bad for you!!) on top of the uncooked cookies.  Bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees.  Let cool and enjoy.  They are delicious and super easy!  

Before I go to finish reading my Glamour mag, I want to share with you a really funny dirty joke that my dad, TheViking, told Biff and I.  Enjoy :)

An Italian man came to America and caught sight of beautiful, black dress shoes.
He decided that he needed these shoes.  He bought them immediately.
Later that week, the Italian man went to a church function.
He saw a woman and asked her to dance.  While they were dancing, he asked her a question.
"Are you wearing yellow panties?"
"Why, yes I am!  How did you know?"
"It's my shoes!  I could see the reflection.  Aren't they so shiny and beautiful?"
"Why, yes they are!"
Time passed and the Italian man saw a new girl that he wanted to dance with.
Next thing you know, the two of them were dancing when he had to ask another question.
"Are you wearing pink panties?"
"Why, yes I am!  How did you know?"
"It's my shoes!  I could see the reflection.  Aren't they so shiny and beautiful?"
"Why, yes they are!"
A little more time passed, when a new girl caught the Italian man's eye.
After agreeing to dance, the Italian man got all sweaty and hot.  He started trembling with nerves and fighting back fear.  This time the woman asked the question.
"Is everything ok?"
"Well, no.  Are you wearing any underwear?"
"Why, no I'm not!  How did you know?"
"Oh, thank God!!  I thought I had a crack in my new shoe."
hahahahaha only TheViking!
