My Secret Obsession...


COOKIE JARS

My husband makes fun of me because
 I have a cookie jar obsession,
well I admit it, I do!
LOVE cookie jars!!

Now it would only be considered an addiction
 if I actually bought every cookie jar, right?!
But I don't because I have been waiting for the PERFECT one!

drum 

roll 

please...

THIS ONE!
Isn't he a cutie?

When I first saw this on the show
Modern Family
I jumped off the couch,
grabbed the remote,
and pressed rewind on the dvr, 
{to show the hubs, who could probably care less, but humors me ;}
all while yelling, 
"oh my gosh, oh my gosh!"
My hubs thought something crazy had happened that he missed, 
{while sitting right there watching}
No, just me acting like a crazy person
who found the cookie jar of her 
childhood dreams!!

There is something about this cookie jar 
that gives me that warm fuzzy feeling and
I want to make up a fantastic story about...
how it was passed down from my great-great grandma
who made cookies every Sunday
for her kids and grandkids 
and I am now the lucky girl who gets to have it for my kids!

I have only kept it 
a secret
because I don't want everyone 
thinking I collect cookie jars!

For some reason when you tell someone you like something,
you seem to only get that sort of item
anytime you receive gifts!
And that is usually really great!!
But when it comes to cookie jars,
I have to be clear,
I only like THIS ONE cookie jar!!
{and my birthday is only 4 months away ;}
This will be mine,
oh yes,
it will be mine ;}
