Tonight, I will begin my baking and unbaking festival for The Healthy Living Summit! Although I missed the boat and wasn't included in Caitlin's post this AM, I will be participating in her Bake Sale to benefit Team in Training/Lukemia and Lymphoma Society! I will definitely be making a double batch of my Almond Coconut Macaroons (so good you might cry), and depending upon how they turn out, I will also include some nutty granola squares. My recipe still needs a tweak or two, so hopefully I'll get it right tonight. I've been trying to wait until the last possible moment to make the goodies so that they are as fresh as possible for the weekend!
I have decided on the cutest packaging, and I'm printing up all of the labels today.
I get more excited about paper, printing, and crafting products than I really should. An intervention may be necessary, but please wait until after I've made the labels and tags for my macaroons. Thank you.
In the meantime, I'm preparing to leave for Boston tomorrow, and I'll be there until Sunday. I've done some sporadic shopping over the past 4 days, and I have hopefully located the perfect cocktail dress and shoes for Friday's party. I also treated myself to a FlipHD video camera the other day, so you might just see a few videos pop up over the weekend to memorialize the Summit!
I recently broke the news to My Gazelle that he will likely be the only man around. I'm not sure if he is delighted or horrified. Probably a mixture of both.
I'm getting really excited about leaving tomorrow, but I have to admit that I'm a little nervous about my scheduled 15-miler for this weekend. I'm still not sure how I'm going to accomplish a 15 mile run in a strange city while I'm supposed to be partying it up and having fun. I'll work on that...
