Hi Koralee,

Wouldn't that be nice if it was true!

Why is it that all the things that are bad for us, taste so good.

Have a wonderful week
Hugs
Carolyn

I'm not angry...I'm pissed! lol

I too wish cookie crumbs had less calories, I'd be smashing cookies galore! Great post my friend!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart sweet friend, I appreciate your support and your little treasure is on it's way!

Dear Koralee~

Perfect post for me today! I have been craving a white cupcake with heart sprinkles on top...maybe because I know Valentines Day is near~ BUT I know, I must NOT...Today antiquing in the stops, there were conversation hearts, I ate some & there were BLUE ones in the bowl!

I LOVE sweets!!

XO's

Julie Harward said...

THE ONLY THING I AM ANGRY ABOUT IS THAT THERE IS CALORIES AND FAT IN MY FAVORITE FOODS!!! :D

Cottage Cozy said...

Or...we could just stay in shape and not have to worry about it! ~Just a thought~

Teresa said...

Oh I love it Koralee!
I was thinking the other day...
when I made the BIG decision to stop the sweets...WHY oh WHY are all these wonderful sweet goodies bad for the tummmmmy?
Which by the way...
mine is feeling mighty poooooched out over the jeans since I've been indulging since the icing on my birthday cake December 2nd!
Woops...that's almost 2 months ago!
Time to take control!!
I toootally believe it only takes 2 weeks to get back out of shape...YUK!!!
Delighted to be back in your world this night!
Such a sweet place to be...
So sweeeeet in fact...
it's just got to be fattening!
XOOOXXOOXX!

Hi Koralee, I adore this quote, like most of us I have gained excess pounds over Christmas perhaps not quite for the same reasons as usual!More stress induced, regarding concern for my sons recovery you understand, but they are sooo hard to shift!!You always help put things in perspective again.I'm not sure if you picked up my last comment, but just to let you know I have nominated you and one of your posts as my Stylish Blog Crush,(it was such a beautiful post I could not resist) over @ My Passport to Style.I would like also to personally invite you to my Tea Dance, I do hope you will come!!

Torie Jayne said...

Hi Koralee, I so wish the cookie crumble was true! Great quote! Have a sweet day!

Angie Muresan said...

I refuse to get angry about eating yummies. Life's just too short. Everything in moderation is the key.

Val said...

I agree with Angie's comment!(but I'm often angry about my own shape!)

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Hi Sweet Koralee, I wish that were true I would happily eat crumbled cookies all day long. Why oh Why do I have such a sweet tooth?? I am trying hard to cut back on the sweets, it isn't easy. I don't miss being young except for my killer metabolism !! I could eat a box of cookies and lose weight now if I even look at a box of cookies I gain weight LOL
Have a nice day

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hi Koralee... soo cute... I have heard also that if you dunk them in your coffee... the calories melt away... tee hee hee... xoxo Julie Marie

Kitty M said...

Pretty photo Koralee, I could eat cakes and sweeties all day long! xxx

littlebyrd said...

haha! It's TRUE about the 6 mo/2 wks :) Darnit.

Kissed by an Angel said...

I love that cookie crumbs have less calories than whole ones!!!!It must be true - you said so!!! Perfect!!!

Julie said...

And this is why I don't get in shape! Then I'm never upset at my self!

Nana said...

Elyse said...

sigh ... i am constantly torn between wanting to be 20 lbs lighter and still wanting to enjoy the treats. trying to find a balance, trying to exercise, trying to munch on almonds.

June said...

Koralee, what a delightful post. I'm heading for the cookie jar right now to smash some cookies. Angry...I'm not angry...really.
hugs

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

sigh.......love this.

So perfect for the end of January when the reality of our new year's resolutions are sinking in.....

Have a great day ~

CinnamonAndSass said...

I just found your blog and I love it! Laughed my butt off at that quote!

Jennifer said...

Then put them into a milk shake and you have a low calorie shake but only on Tuesdays!!! Love, Jennifer

Helen McGinn said...

Ooh, my mantra! It has however taken me 6 weeks to lose 4 pounds yet in the last 4 days I've lost 6 pounds due to illness. Go figure! Um...don't misunderstand, I'd rather have kept the weight and not had the illness but it every cloud has to have a silver lining, this is it, right? Plus I'm almost better and all I want to eat is soup. I'll give it two weeks....

Helen McGinn said...

Did I lose my message? I got distracted for a moment and turned round and it was gone. :O(

Jacqueline said...

Why is it, Koralee that all of the things that we love to eat consist mainly of fat !!
We just have to have willpower !!
I'm off to eat cookie crumbs !! XXXX

paperbird said...

Oh how true that statement is- I bitterly came to that conclusion after stepping on the scale last week after being on vacation- I wanted to cry- so if I melt my icecream are there less calories? LOL!

Luiza said...

That´s information I REALLY need, so that I can stop making all goodies at home =D...

I´m feeling kind of blue, but it will get over soon. And I´m ill again.... I just got better, and now it started all over...this time a bit worse...

Wish you a lovely evening, my dear!

Love ♥/
Luiza

Rizzi said...

WHAT A GREAT IDEA, NO WONDER I GAIN WEIGHT WHEN I EAT A WHOLE COOKIE, I'LL HAVE TO START CRUMBLING THEM, THANKS FOR THE TIP. TAKE CARE, RIZZI

Randi Troxell said...

such a pretty place your home here on the web is.. found you through dustjacket attic...

hope you don't mind if i stay a while!

Pinecone Camp said...

No matter what, cookies or cookie crumbs, if eaten by the dozen, will produce pimples! I have just learned this. Hard lesson!

Tiedupmemories said...

What about cookie dough? Not too many calories huh? Sad but true...diets are no fun!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh, if only it were so...

Laura Trevey said...

That would be so nice, wouldn't it?

xoxo

The Garden Bell said...

What a great picture. So simple and so sweet. The words are perfect, too. Enjoyed my visit today again.

Kate xoxoxo

Barbara said...

Is that why I gain weight? Because I eat a whole cookie? OK- next time I'm crumbling.

BTW: Truer words on gaining weight and dieting were never spoken.

CARMELINA LOUNSBURY said...

Morning T said...

Too cute and SO true! Two cookies a day for me and a glass of wine~ we have to indulge ourselves at least a bit don't we?! :-)

stephanie@craftylolly.com said...

That's just depressing, but anything worth while is an effort. I am eating better, but I need to get on that treadmill!
XO

A Gift Wrapped Life said...

It's those mallow cookies that just seem so innocent........I know it is.Will it be better if I smash them before I eat them? I know, too easy. Have a cookieless week ~ Xo

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

We just won't eat cookies, there's other things you know, like ice cream and candy, and chips and (stop me really any time...)

Cute post as always!

Robin~♥

Laura said...

I think I am the fattest I have ever been. This is the trouble when your spouse is fatter then you...you always think you are skinny...until you put on your jeans. And being in the cake decorating business doesn't help either.
hmph

Well...fat aside...
I am so happy you stopped by my blog...because your blog is a dream come true! Although I have to admit, when I say your lovely images come up on the screen, I had that awful feeling..you know, like when someone who owns a beautiful home stops by your filthy piece of crap home, uninvited, and you feel horrified! THAT is how I felt! Like...OH NO! SHE saw MY blog!!!!! It is a mess!!!!!

It is pouring rain tonight, and I have no cakes to bake, and so I am looking forward to sitting down and reading and reading reading...
this blog is a total treat (with no fat or calories!).
thanks

Beach Vintage said...

I am actually eating a cake whilst I am reading this! Oh no....

Farmgirl Paints said...

HA! You are so funny. If only there was truth to it. I would be a crumbly cookie monster;)

tales from an oc cottage said...

Man! I need a donut!


m^..^

Maria said...

So funny, Koralee!
And if you break off a piece of cookie, that's the half with less calories ;o)
I love cookie crumbs on my yogurt!
yum!
Koralee, Your giveaway package came today!
Thank you so very much!
A BIG THANK YOU email is on its way. You are such a sweet friend and dear ♥
God Bless You ~ Maria

red ticking said...

oh i and i know we can eat all the cookies and brownies we want in heaven... and wont gain any weight! xx pam

Karen said...

Oh my goodness! Like the cookies themselves don't have to be tempting enough all by themselves, but all wrapped up in a cute polka dot bow?! Yikes!!

I like your theory about the crumbles though (well, if I'm also pretending to not read the tiny disclaimer!). :>

Hope your Tuesday has been a good one! :>

red ticking said...

somehow my post on oreo's did not make it thru... i think oreo's dunked in milk dont count right? wink...

katrina said...

i think your posts would make great postcards/greeting cards, Koralee. have you thought of converting your posts into physical cards to sell? i think it would be a hit.

caroline joy said...

what if they're crumbled up cookies in ice cream? That's how I like mine :)

Kellie Collis said...

Diet!? WHat does diet mean. give me those little lovelies any day!

caretakingcouple said...

Oh, how I love cookies (chocolate chips with macadamia chunks). And Ice Cream (Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia). And cherry pie (homemade!)...

Your blog is my treat, while I do my best to be good. It is a constant struggle and the clothes are all quite tight! Now is the time to get in shape for an active spring and summer, though.

Especially now that we are living on the Cape!
