Is anyone out there?

So.... (which, I just want to say... I am officially going to apologize, right here, right now. I am apologizing for over-using the teeny tiny word "so", as well as dot-dot-dot, or better known to you as "...".) There, now that is over with.... ha ha!

Anyway... so, I was just wondering, is anyone else out there? I am up at 1:33 a.m. and I am baking cookies. Why, you might ask. I have no idea. I didn't have a nap today, nor did I take my vitamins that give me more energy than one person needs... however, I did have a diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper at 10 p.m., but I will adamantly deny if anyone tried to tell me that it was probably the caffeine is probably why I am still up and typing very fast, kind of like the way that I talk when I am on a caffeine high... seriously... don't say it. I mean it... don't even think it.

Ok...(wow... that is another one that I use a lot! Sorry again! LOL!). By the way... Terah I can hear you laughing at me, and saying, yes... Candace, you are seriously high on Caffeine! LOL! You have seen me this way WAY too many times for me to deny it... "My name is Candace, and I am a caffeine-aholic." "Hi Candace!" Again... getting off track.

I have decided that since I am up at nearly 2 in the morning(yeah... by the time I post that, it will be nearly 2 in the morning... my time) that I am going to tell you a few things that I have learned while baking cookies at 2 in the morning.

1.) When you are trying to be really quiet so not to wake your loving husband who is sound asleep, it is inevitable that you are going to either drop a cookie sheet, stub your foot, hit a door that you thought was open and make a HUGE noise, have to pee 3 times(thank you Dr Pepper) and knock over your vitamin box.

2.) Even if I have seen that particular episode of "Friends" a hundred times... it is still funny and never gets old.

3.) At 2 in the morning... my dog snores really loud and I love her for it. :)

4.) When I am not "trying" at all, that is when my cookies turn out the best ever... and Doug isn't awake to appreciate it at all! I mean... they are really the best right out of the oven! Poor guy...

5.) I feel really stupid after taking these pictures.... not really... but I do think I really have too much time on my hands, and I am going to wish that I had been sleeping instead of baking cookies and taking pictures of it. LOL!

6.) I love the twilight books... this isn't something that I learned, rather something I just felt compelled to share with you.

7.) I have learned... cookie dough tastes really good in the middle of the night! Seriously... there is something so wrong with me.

So... those are just a few things that I have learned. Please pray for me... I am really going to hate myself in the morning. Oh well... Good night!

Write to me and tell me if you ever have one of these nights... it would help me feel a little less weird! LOL!

Candace, you so make me smile.
I have nights like that, but I don't bake...i just continually surf the web or something cause you see...I like to hide out down in the basement even when everyone's asleep. :)

Too funny! Those cookies look DELICIOUS! I think the only difference between you and I is that at 2 am if I were awake, I'd be scrounging for cookies, not baking them. :)

I hope you were able to sleep better the following night. I don't think I've ever baked cookies in the middle of the night before.

Your daughter is adorable!

I just found your blog and love it! I'm looking forward to reading more.
