Yesterday was Black Friday did you attempt to go out into the crowds? I did, I started shopping at 7am, and I got all the goodies I wanted! VIP Bag from Bath & Body Works, VIP Bag from Victoria’s Secret and other little sales here and there. The mall I went to was not bad at all. No fighting the crowds for me, and I even went to Target this evening to get wrapping paper and it was normal in there, not crazy. Last year I went to Target at 6am, and OMG that was the worse and one of the scariest moments ever! I got rammed with carts, people were rude and it was so busy the lines wrapped around the store. I’ll never do that again, there’s nothing I need that bad to stand in those lines.
So today, I will be wrapping presents, heading to one more store and getting ready to ship out gifts on Monday. One thing that keeps slipping my mind is Christmas Cards. Do you do Christmas cards every year? I normally do, but I’m thinking I may not this year. I don’t know. What do you think?
After all this weekend craziness I need a little treat that involves Alcohol, don’t you agree? Maybe even some chocolate topped with some mint flavor. So with all that I created these.
Mmmm, nothing like Bailey’s and Andes Candies all in one little cookie! Yes, Please!
These cookies are so good, you get a hint of Bailey’s and a hint of Andes Candies. I love them! There a soft cookie with a smooth texture on the outside and kind of like a snickerdoodle on the inside, but tastes like mint. Ohh, Snickerdoodles, another one of my favs. I think I may make them next week!

Time to do the dishes, I swear my chores are never done! Then some romance time with my Cookies and Bailey’s! lol
Have a wonderful day!!
I didn’t do ANY black friday shopping and now I feel almost guilty about it…maybe Sunday? I bet the sales will still be on then, right?
I love Andes baking chips but can never find them! Did you get them at Target? They have the best baking goodies.

Good morning Joanne, Yup I got the Andes Baking Chips at Target. How did you guess? I couldn’t find them in any other store, but of course Target would never let me down. They have a ton of different kinds of baking chips, but if you can’t find them, I’m sure that Hershey’s Dark Chocolate Mint Baking Chips would be really good to.
The sales are still going on and don’t forget Cyber Monday. If you want the VIP bag from Bath and Body Works, it’s a really nice one, go online to get it. and I think they are even offering free shipping. I like the bags as backup gifts encase an unexpected gift arrives. It’s a full set of Enchanted fragrance, Mistletoe Kiss Soap and Hand Sanitizer, Lip Gloss, one of those puffy sponges and a couple other trinkets.
Have a great day!!!

I’m petrified of stores on Black Friday. I find so many online stores offer great discounts now that there’s no point.
But more importantly, these cookies look to die for!
These cookies look amazing! I love anything with Bailey’s in it! 🙂
No Black Friday for me, since I buy mostly online, and those deals will be here Monday! We did go to our town’s Christmas Tree lighting ceremony on Friday night and support some local downtown shops.

These cookies look delicious! Plus I love Baileys so you know it’s automatically a winning treat in my books!
