If you give a mouse a cookie........

If you give a mouse a cookie, he is going to ask for a glass of milk.
When you give him the milk, he'll probably ask you for a straw.
When he's finished he'll ask for a napkin.
~excerpt form the book written by Laura J Numeroff~

I am sure at one time or another you have had the chance to read this delightful little children's book to someone special. I love how this book tells the story of a little boy who sets the story in motion by giving a mouse a cookie and how it snowballs from there showing us how one thing leads to another. I don't know about you but that is exactly how some of my days go. As I was wandering through Target the other day this book came to my thoughts. I smiled to myself as I rewrote it in my mind.........
If you give a mom a morning, she will take a trip to Target.
After she is there, she will decide to look for a new pair of boots.
Once she finds her new boots, it will remind her of the upcoming winter season.
She will decided to wander through the Christmas department.
Once there, she spies a bag of her favorite holiday treat, chocolate mint M & Ms.
After placing them in her cart, she will decide to head to the in store Starbucks for another holiday favorite, a peppermint mocha.

Now that she is in the Christmas Spirit, she will head to Michaels Craft Store to look for holiday decorations for her home.
And so the story continues.... how one thing leads to another. Does this happen to anyone else or am I the only silly, distracted one?
Seeing that this blog post seems to have the sweet cookie theme, I want to share with you a little sweet treat of my own that I recently created.
A fun cupcake charm all packaged in it's own cupcake paper and tucked into a candy box. All ready for gift giving. I have added this sweet, non fattening treat to my etsy shop. Come on over and have a look. And remember what happens if you give a mouse a cookie..............

Mimi, You are a delight! Your trips out sound exactly like mine! We also both adore the same movies. I bet you like the backgrounds too! Love, love the apt in You've Got Mail. I watch all of her stories for the backgrounds! Well, I'm off to read more of your posts, but wanted to thank you for spending time reading my stories. Elizabeth
