I love to plan. I like to organize too. But I really, really like to plan. I like to plan my day and make all my errands organized to be done most efficiently and by priority. Give me a day trip or other quick get away to plan and I’m one happy camper. But give me “an event”…and I’m over the moon. Go figure. But its true. Thanksgiving is planned – and seems to be a day that everyone is looking forward to…which is a success all by itself! More about Thanksgiving later – as in next week:) But I am also planning our church’s annual ladies’ shopping trip – a bus trip for…well, for shopping! and fun. oh, and food of course! The trip down to Richmond on Monday was to finalize the restaurant where we will have dinner. Cute find – and I’m excited about that part. This week, some friends came over and we made the “favors”, if you will. The ladies always get a treat to take home…..a thanks for coming as well as reminder of the fun day! This year, we made OREO cookie pops. Oh my. They were (almost) too super easy (even I could do it!) but looks so “sweet” – pun intended! – and pretty when you are done. They would be great to share in a child’s classroom, with your Bible study group, MOPS group, etc. or even with your neighbors. I used Double Stuff Oreos and white chocolate melting disks from Michaels. Simply separate the cookies and use a dab of melted chocolate (which I simply melted in the microwave) to hold a stick on the cookie crème and then re-sandwich the Oreo together. Then dip in the melted chocolate and lay on wax paper to cool. While the chocolate is still soft, sprinkle with colored sprinkles or crushed peppermint candies – or whatever you prefer. The bags, which already had the ribbon attached, I also found at Michaels. You could also decorate yours with colored ribbon, etc. Truly, so easy. All in a basket and ready to go!! I really think I need to hide these – cause we don’t go for almost two weeks!!
