Mothers Day Cookies and a Cool Cycling Video Too

Here are some more Mothers Day cookies that I made.
I decided to use brown and pink as my main decorating colors after all the flowers that I made.
and the cookies boxed as a gift for my Mother-in-Law:
But then I decided to add in pink & lime green. I'm on a bit of a pink & lime green obsession right now. My poor husband is scared and rightly so. Every time I go through a color obsession it is HUGELY expensive. When I worked at Cisco and for about 10+ years I was completely obsessed with the color lavender. Everything I owned was lavender. I know all my cycling friends are gasping right now! Yes, there was a color obsession before PINK! The pink obsession started on August 1, 2006. The day my husband gave me my beautiful bicycle and it was gorgeous PINK. Yes, he very much regrets that day ;-) My entire wardrobe has become pink, every single item in my office and our beautiful kitchen and yes, you've seen the pink hair...
So we'll see if I can hold onto the pink or if I might need to do a little adding in of splashes of lime green. Poor hubby. I already bought lime green handlebar tape and a lime green saddle bag. Uh oh ... ;-) Speaking of cycling, I know many of you don't understand the craziness of the desire to get out there and ride lots of miles. I saw this video today and it captures it completely. Keep in mind that these are MY hills. They are literally in my neighborhood and it really shows the beauty of the sport and the amazing sites we see from the bicycle. Enjoy, I promise you will when you see this:

Tomorrow I will be posting Girl Scout cookie pictures after we tour a college campus for my son.
