green things are everywhere

Okay, so.... I have no idea how this happened, but apparently, it's already March!?! How did that happen? Why didn't anyone warn me? You can't just spring something like that on me and expect...actually, I have no idea what you expect. Because I will not be curing cancer, you can be sure of that. I will leave that to my more intelligent relatives and people who are in no way related to me. At all.

I had a whirlwind of great ideas when I finally came to my senses and realized that St. Patrick's Day is less than, umm, some days away. (I know when St. Patrick's Day is. I'm just not exactly sure about what day today is. Come, on -- that's NEVER happened to you?) I wanted to whip up some of those ideas real quick so I could show you, so I could be one of the cool bloggers who are totally on top of things and never forget what day it is for weeks at a time. But then I realized that whenever I try to "whip up" some cookies, they look awful. Worse than awful even. They look like badness is sugar form. Which, if you are wondering, is not good. But I can't wait to join the rush of green. So I am TOTALLY going to cheat and show you some cookies from last year. Is that okay? (Don't tell me if its not.)

(Is it just me, or was I way better at piping back when I was still in my twenties? Ahh, the good old days...) While you are gazing at these, I've got some cookie dough in the mixer and I will return with some....thing....that looks like a St. Patrick's Day cookie. Probably.

Oh, and I wanted to tell you -- I made these cookies with coconut royal icing and they were SO GOOD. Like, really good. Quite possibly my favorite combination of sugar cookie flavors to date. So...you know, think about it.
