After we finished modeling/displaying all of our thrift store finds, we decided it was time to make some cookies. Not just any cookies, but some gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. I've been craving them for a couple weeks now and I finally had to give in. I used this recipe that I found on Pinterest and I am very pleased with how they turned out.
The dough had to be chilled before being able to handle it so while it cooled down in the freezer, we did another little photo shoot with my early birthday present.
While we were at the farmers' market, we stopped at a little pottery booth. I LOVE this booth and am tempted every time I go there. But since I had already overspent at the thrift store, I knew I couldn't spend more money. Fortunately, my birthday is coming up in a little over a month so Cora bought me my present early!
Isn't it beautiful? I've been wanting something to store my garlic in but hadn't found the perfect thing yet. I'm pretty sure this is as close to perfection as I will get. I love the green colour and it looks so perfect sitting on my counter.
Once the cookie dough had cooled long enough, we got back to the cookie making.

|Doesn't the dough look perfect?|
|Fresh out of the oven!|
|They don't even look gluten-free. Success.|
Once we were done with the cookies and had eaten way too many of them, we moved to the basement to start our knitting projects (and to move far away from the cookies).
|I love to knit!|
|Cora really excited about the progress she had made|

After supper, we continued to knit while watching The Proposal. It was a good end to a busy day.
Sunday morning we woke up, did a dance workout on the Wii and then painted our toe nails and did some more knitting. Can you tell we like to knit?
