Things rarely work out exactly as I imagine they will. Like, one time, I planned this huge Thanksgiving meal for kind of a lot of people (more than 20) while my husband was deployed with the army. And then in the two days before Thanksgiving...every single person canceled. So my little boy and I had macaroni and cheese for Thanksgiving dinner. Not quite what I had planned. (This is not a depressing story. Don't feel bad. It's funny. Macaroni and Cheese for Thanksgiving Dinner. My little boy loved it.)
Almost every single cookie I make is another example. Let me show you what I mean.
2) See the blue square cookie on the right? I was going to make a lot more of them. But for some reason, I forgot and didn't make very much blue icing. At all. Soooo....I made a whole bunch of purple and brown ones like the square cookies on the left.
3) The flowers. I don't know WHAT I was thinking. But these did not turn out like that. Thank goodness, because these are way cuter than the weirdness I had planned for them.
The only ones that turned out just how I planned were the owl cookies. And that's because I forced them to. I threatened them with time-outs and everything.
