So…  I attempted to make coconut macaroons for our cookie exchange tomorrow.  I made sure the batter formed stiff peaks and all that jazz, but for whatever reason completely unknown to me, every macaroon came out more like a coconut pancake.  They taste absolutely fabulous, but they sure look like hell…  SUCK IT MACAROONS!!!  Know your damn role and fluff up next time!!!

*Day 10: I am grateful for the birth of another healthy baby.  A fellow doula and friend of mine gave birth to a 9 pound baby last night without medication, surrounded by her daughter, husband, and another doula, with the help of the fabulous midwives.  I am sooo happy for them and again, grateful for the safe arrival of their new daughter!
