We’re nearing the end of March…

and I have yet to get any Girl Scout Cookies!!! I was a Brownie & Girl Scout when I was little, and though I didn’t do it for long, those cookies somehow get into your bloodstream and make you crave them for a lifetime. If I were in Erie, I’m pretty sure the little suppliers would be at every local grocery store for the duration of the sale, but I haven’t seen any in our neighborhood. Perhaps Girl Scouts aren’t as popular in the urban areas? Is it a suburban thing here? Or perhaps it’s just not as popular across the board?

Anyway, I’m really hoping for a box of Thin Mints and Samoas (the coconuty-chocolate ones). And if I really go crazy, I might get a box of Tagalongs, too (the ones with the peanut butter inside). I have gone so far as to email the regional chapter of the Girl Scouts to find out where I can get some, but I have yet to receive a reply. Apparently they do not understand the gravity of this situation. 🙂

Moving on… we had a lovely Palm Sunday weekend. Actually, yesterday we had a pretty big group over for Sunday dinner. I haven’t had a group like that over since before Christmas (and I honestly have no idea how I did that, I must have just been insane–I can hardly recall it). But it was a lot of fun to do it yesterday. I was totally exhausted at the end, but it was still fun. It’s been so long since we’ve had plans on a weekend that Abraham turned to me last night and said, “Having plans on the weekend makes it go by so fast. Let’s not have any of those anymore.” 🙂 We’ve really cut back since September. In some ways, we’ve decided to have fewer plans, in other ways it has just happened. I think it’s a good place for our family to be right now.

    Someone left about a third of a case of girl scout cookies laying around Grace last week. I was going to walk around handing them out at youth groups but I was scared someone had ordered them, forgot them here, and would come looking.

    And here you are searching for them everywhere…

    They sell Girl Scout cookies at the grocery store by my house here in Louisville. If you can’t find any I would be happy to pick some up for you and send them your way!

    I got some Samoa’s myself. The box was gone in three days. 🙂

    Wow, I wasn’t thinking I’d get offers for shipping them! You are so sweet! I’m still holding out for an email from my local chapter, but I’ll let you know if that falls through.

    g.s. cookies, especially thin mints, are one of the things i really miss about being in the states! i can’t remember the last time i was there at the right time and place to have them though! (and the mint melts and gets nasty if you try to ship them to africa, i know this through experience!!)

    Hi Molly,

    Not sure if you remember me, we’ve met a few times (I’m Courtney’s sister-in-law!) But I found your blog through the 2520 girls 🙂 Just wanted to let you know that the Girl Scouts are at the Cub on East Lake St. every time my husband and I go grocery shopping (we usually do this on Sundays, I’m not sure if they are there all days of the week or not) Hope you can find some before the cookie season is over!

    I love thin mints.

    i feel the same way about doing so many social things on the weekends. It makes them go by too fast and I’m usually exhausted.

    i’m going to risk being THE biggest buzz kill by telling you that I recently heard that Girl scouts is the largest supporter of Planned parenthood. (google it) Seriously. I know. I feel like a jerk for sharing this info. I don’t think every chapter gives financial support, though. I can taste the Samoas now, but will probably never support Girl Scouts ever again. My advice, Molly: take the freebies as they come. Enjoy them…guilt free…because you didn’t buy them. By the way, weren’t Tagalongs once called Hoe Downs? And what are the shortbread ones called? Could eat a sleeve of thin mints or the shortbread ones in a sitting.

    ehh, you know, I’m late getting to your blog today! I ordered 10 boxes from my niece (ugh, i know, 10??) But I happened to have ordered 2 each of Samoas, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs. I’d love to share with you!

    I don’t need all those cookies myself anyway 🙂

    If you’d like me to, I can get them in the mail to you as soon as my parents get back (from Louisville, KY, where my niece lives…)!

    7 boxes down?!?!

    I don’t think I did that when I was pushin’ 300.

    Oh wait, now it’s coming back to me… eating Somoans by the handful.

    Yep. I made 7 boxes look like a snack.

    Molly,
    Crystal gave me your blog address. It’s really nice to catch up on you. I just wanted you to know I’m praying for you today, especially. It’s good to hear what’s going on.
    Love, Andie
