I planned on showing off my new cake plate, with the cupcakes I am making tonight, but on Saturday we got a surprise in the mail. My husband's birthday was in September and, my mother, usually sends him homemade chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies.
We thought this year would be no different, and patiently awaited the coveted cookies. By the end of October we had given up all hope on receiving the yummy cookies. My husband, really wanting his cookies, would make comments in the background when I would talk to my mother, He would got into full guilt trip mode and say things like, " I felt the loving embrace of your family last year, but it's fading now, your mother doesn't like me anymore..", he would sigh and be in full pout mode.
Well I guess it worked, because on Saturday morning there was a knock on the door and a package left on our doorstep. It was addressed to my husband, and guess what was in the package!? My mothers wonderful homemade chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies! They are almost gone now..
