Be A Smart Cookie

It's officially that time of the year where parties, presents, family, friends, food and treats take over much of many people's lives. And since I live in the real world, where avoiding cookies this month simply isn't an option, I decided to research and collect sixteen festive cookie craving options that will satisfy the sweettooth without sabotaging the waistline.

Chocolate Coconut Meringues (36 cals), Cherry Surprise (97 cals), Dark Chocolate Turtles (80 cals), Candy Cane Cookies (90 cals)
Peppermint Patties (71 cals), Peppermint Biscotti (57 cals), Chocolate Pistachio (54 cals), Coconut Macaroons (52 cals)
Mint Chocolate Chip (72 cals), Chocolate Thumbprints (80 cals), Gingerbread (66 cals), Mint Meringue Kisses (47 cals)
Brown Sugar Cookies (62 cals), Ganache Sandwiches (53 cals), Sugar Free Sugar Cookies (57 cals), Peppermint Meringue (7 cals)

Today I'd like to introduce you to this month's featured sponsor, Melissa from Two Miracles

Tell us a little bit about yourself... My name is Melissa, I am 26 years old. I have been married to my highschool sweetheart, Matt for 5 years. We have twin daughters who are 4 and have an amazing birth story. They truly are miracles. We have 1 dog named Brutus. I love photography, playing games, softball, and college football.

Why did you start blogging? I started blogging after I had my girls 3 months premature. They were born at 26 weeks and I wanted a way for family and friends to keep up with everything that was going on. In all honestly, it was too hard to tell the same things over and over so I thought this would be a way for everyone to see and not ask.

What are three of your favorite posts? My First, Second, and Third

What are your favorite topics to blog about? I love to blog about parentingpreemiesDIY, and fitness.

Describe your perfect day from start to finish. My perfect day would be being able to sleep in, waking up to breakfast being cooked, and just spending the say watching movies and cuddling with my family. I am a big homebody so staying at home with my family means more than going to some fancy dinner and a movie. I would rather just stay at home and do all those things without spending a ton of money.
