The Chocolate Chip Cookie Cure

There are some days when I just feel like I’m in a sort of weird funk. Those days where no matter what I do, I just can’t be in a good mood. No amount of coffee, upbeat music, or exercise can turn my frown upside down. Sometimes these days can last for a week. And I hate it! I hate feeling so bleh. That’s how I felt all last week. Everything and everyone annoyed me. (My mom used to joke that “annoyed” is my favorite word…and I think she’s right). My boss even called me a grump. Oops. I pretty much just wanted to be alone, but at the same time I thought maybe some company could lift my spirits a bit. So first, I bought these to greet me when I woke up every morning…

They did help to brighten my mood. Until I had to actually get OUT of bed. And go to work. I don’t think the incessant rainy days helped either. Luckily, by Friday, the rain ceased and the sun came out. Just in time for happy hour the weekend. A few of these gems….

and I was ready to pppaaaaarrttyyyyyy (I really hope you’ve seen Bridesmaids). Yea, I was a combination of rockstar/dancing queen/20 years old. Until Saturday rolled around and the couch wouldn’t let me get up. All I could hear was a little man living inside my head, beating it with a hammer, saying “HEY! You’re 26 years old! 5am bedtimes aren’t acceptable!”

Whatever. Four hours later, I peeled myself off the couch in an effort to be somewhat productive (at 7pm). I decided that the one and only thing that could make my life worth living, was cookies. Chocolate Chip cookies. Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Oy vey. These hit the spot. All 10 2 of them. I’m still in the process of adopting a wheat free diet and these make that transition much easier! They taste just like your bakery chocolate chip cookie. With a few of these puppies, I was on the up and up.

My girlfriends and I got together for dinner, grapes, and a Bachelorette finale viewing Sunday night. I was Team Jef since their trip to London, and of course that heartfelt letter on the hometown date, so I was on cloud nine when she made the BEST decision of her life. We were all teary-eyed and giddy by the time the 3 hour showing was over.

What started out as a bleh, grumpy, gray week, ended up being a pretty awesome summer weekend. Cheers to cookies, grapes, and sappy love stories!
