2013 -- week 51 -- girl scout cookie season is around the corner!



the week before the holidays is always busy -- there's last minute shopping to do and holiday festivities to attend, and yet somehow, this week was pretty tame for us. i wasn't feeling well, so that might have contributed to it, but for the most part we like to stay in and snuggle on the couch rather than go out during the week. the one time we ventured out of our house however, was for the parade of lights in downtown tucson. it's an annual tradition, but one we managed to miss last year. and it was pretty cool; there were a ton of organizations from tucson that presented their holiday floats to be judged. our favorites were the dachshund rescue, the many youth organizations with their tiny elves, and, of course, the star wars themed float hosted by the 501st legion of storm troopers. but the most important news we learned during our outing was about girl scout cookies, the most anticipated time of year in my house: they will be available for purchase on january 18th. rejoice!
