I hope you will forgive this little indulgence.  I normally do not post anything on my baking blog that is not, well, baking related.  

And this sorta is…

I just received a very special package in the mail.

It is from the lovely and talented ladies from Brides magazine.


Dont scratch your head too long, yes I am already married.  There is no new news there.

So what is so special about this particular issue?

*holding breath cause I still can't believe its real*


My cookies are in it!!!

About five months ago I teased that I had some big news about these facebook and twitter cookies.  And this is it!  


The most precious page ever, #64, contains these little bad boys.

I am so honored and thrilled and not even a comment from dear hubby like, "Thats it?" can bring me down. (He, being my dear husband and all, just assumed they would get a whole page.  I love that he did that!)

Yes, thats it.  And thats all I ever wanted!!!  

Thank you so much Brides magazine!  Your staff is amazing and professional and so kind and patient, I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have been a part of this!

Now I promise I wont hijack my blog anymore for silly things like this! (but thank you so much for indulging me!)

Share with your friends!
