Castle Cookies

So I made a really cute background for my castle cookie blog today, but I can't seem to get the darn thing to load correctly. Instead it just shows you a whole bunch of HTML coding. I'm sure you'd rather see cookie pictures than boring code. I'll have to figure that out for another time. Frustrating. Anyway, I made some castle cookies to show you today. I love this theme as you can probably imagine. Yes, I'm such a girly-girl!
 Princess theme for Valentines Day
 and of course for the Knight in Shining Armour too
Princess Hats
 and Frog Prince
I finally got out of my office and went for a long bike ride yesterday. Ever since we took almost a week off to go to Disneyland for my son's birthday and then getting back to Valentines Day cookies, I've been working in my office trying to get caught up. It felt great to finally get outside and get some exercise. We rode 73 miles. It was "easy" miles because there were no big hills, but we faced headwind both directions that was pretty tiring. At about mile 48, there were about 7 miles that I could feel the lactic acid in my legs after not working out for so long and everything hurt til about mile 55. We stopped and had a hot cocoa to warm up and I ate a power bar and felt much better for the last 18 miles home.

Now if I could just figure out the coding on the blog background. See this is the blog background I created. Wouldn't this have been fun for these castle cookies?
Oh well... tomorrow Circus cookies.


  1. Yes, that's darling castle background. ("Castle" also my favorite TV Show!!) But what you chose is way cute, too! The cookies are just darling. I think my favorites are the Princess carriage and the Frog Prince! That says alot since I am terribly afraid of frogs! lol Blessings, Donna B.

    Hugs to you :)

  3. Sorry that your cute background didn't work but these cookies are so cute that they really didn't need any extra help.
