They might be in your neighborhood this week!

 It's that time of year again ~ GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SALES!


My daughter has been a Girl Scout for 6 years.....she's officially a Cadette now.  She has wonderful troop leaders and has nurtured great friendships while being a Girl Scout.  I'm always amazed at the many opportunities and adventures they experience through Girl Scouts.  Just yesterday, her troop (and interested parents that included myself) attended a 4 hour first aid/CPR training class.  It was full of good information for kids and adults.  Next month the girls are attending a Taekwondo Self-Defense class, another great opportunity.  They work hard going door to door to sell cookies (that most people look forward to once a year) and earn money to afford these great experiences.

And, for those customers that aren't interested in eating the GS cookies, they can donate boxes to be sent to our troops overseas.  There's a great group, Mission Mahalo, that takes on the responsibility of packaging all the boxes of cookies to mail to troops.  Below are the donated boxes the girls sold last year.   I like to believe they made some soldiers very happy when they bit into some of those Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, etc.

So, be on the lookout for cookies being sold in your neighborhood this week! 

What's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?



  1. I do love Girl Scout cookies. I didn't realize it was time for them. I didn't know about donating them either. That's awesome!

  2. I was a Girl Scout too! I loved selling G.S. cookies and eating them :) Thin mints are still my favorite cookie. I have boys so Boy Scouts only sell wreaths and popcorn. I will be calling my neighbor to see about getting those yummy cookies. We always buy at least 5 or 6 boxes.

  3. I pick up our troop's cookies this week. I can't believe that my daughter is still in Scouts! We have seven girls who are all seniors in high school. It has been a nice experience for the girls and the parents, too.

  4. Hi, I've run into your blog and I've loved it at the first sight, so you have a new follower from Spain.
