Bake Sale for a Cure

Hey friends! 
I had such a crazy, busy weekend...and work has been so...well...awful...I am just now getting a chance to catch up with you!  Don't you hate when life just gets in the way?  And as an aside, if you had a masters in biology...what would you want to do?  Go.

As I mentioned last week, I hosted a bake sale at work with all of the money going to benefit Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure.  So I spent the weekend baking and truffling.  I ended up with over 50 cookies and about 150 truffles.  Insane.




They all turned out really well and my co-workers could not have been more gracious with their donations.  I'm so glad I did it even though I was not enjoying it on Sunday.  At all.

I also found time to chuck out an 11 mile walk...which almost killed me...and made me mighty nervous about what I have gotten myself into.  Eek!

OK, if I had a master's in biology, I would.... Um? Um? UM!? Yeah, I aced HS biology, but, that's when it stopped for me. I think you should have babies and be a stay at home mom. Who then opens up a bakery and then I would do all your marketing for said bakery. And taste testing for quality control purposes--I couldn't be promoting bad product, now could I?

Those cookies and truffles look amazing!!

Just think, in a few short weeks, we get to hang out!!! I cannot wait to see you!!!

Those look amazing! I'm so sorry work isn't the greatest for you these days. That's amazing that you have a masters in Biology! Goodness, I don't know what I would do with one - can you mix it with your passion for baking? ;o)
