Use Your Words- August 2014: Short and SWEET!

Hello, friends!
Today’s post is a writing challenge created by Karen @ Baking in A TornadoThis is how it works: 11 participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, but there's a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who received their words or in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featured in this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they were given and how they used them. 

My words are: 
Potatoes ~ hippopotamus ~ cannon ~ bug spray ~ orange submarine

They were submitted by: Sarah@ http://themomisodes.com   

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? 

Well, for this challenge, I decided to use all of my words in photos.  I was able to "USE" the words and "EAT" them :)

So, thank you, Sarah. Not only for the awesome words, but for giving me an excellent excuse to bake the day away with my boys.
            


I didn't have cookie-cutters for many of the words, so C. cut them by hand for me.

J. loves to ice the cookies. Lila loves to watch.

Without further ado, here are my "words".


Potatoes

Hippopotamus

Cannon

Bug Spray

Orange Submarine

Thanks again for the words, Sarah!

Have a sweet day, my friends :)

    1. Thanks, Tamara. The boys are growing too fast; I don't know how much longer I'll have with them wanting to hang out with their mom...I guess as long as there are free sweets, they'll stick around :)

    1. Thanks, Karen. It took me a lot longer to bake than to blog, but I enjoyed it. I had to plan a whole day earlier instead of procrastinating! Haha. <3

    1. Thank you, Dawn. I'd like to say it was the most caloric thing I've done this week, but... :)

  5. OMG I'm so hungry for these cookies! Can you mail them to me, PLEASE????? Hey Michele---off topic here, but I put up a serious post today--I think this is one you will like--as per MANY of our conversations in the past. <3

    1. I'd send you anything, Marcia!
      I took my time getting over there because I knew how raw it would be. Just got back from reading it. Thank you for writing about something so painfully close to my heart. It's amazing and sad to know I'm not alone. <3

  6. You just totally made the sub look tastier than fast food, even though they'd taste the same, but the orange on the submarine looked so appealing to my mouth.

    1. You know what? That icing was orange flavored; I can guarantee you it was wonderful to eat :) The Spree port holes didn't hurt!

  7. They are all so adorable! And having to cut them out by hand? You are braver than I am. The bugs and bug spray are my favorites. :)

    1. You're sweet, Ann. We had a lot of fun. Of course, if it were girl scout cookie season, I wouldn't need to be baking at all! :)

  10. I'm so hungry now after reading this post. This is one time I won't mind eating "words". So what time do we eat? All three of our children will be master bakers due to their time spent learning from you. The only thing they will learn from me when it comes to food is to be master eaters. Hey, I guess I did help clean up some of the baking supplies so that entitles me to a bite of submarine and maybe a little hippo too, right? Thanks for the fun post and look forward to the next one (and hopefully more cookies)!

    Love,
    M

    1. I don't think there are many cookies left! Thanks for the clean-up help. That is always my least favorite part. I'm teaching the kids these skills so they can bake for us when we're too old to move. One step ahead, man. <3

    1. How about making suckers in the snow? Asking Mrs. Brown for sugar? We were destined for take-out :) I love when you visit the blog, Nick Nack. Thanks for being my amazing friend <3

    2. Awe Mrs.Brown! I bet she had a stash just in case we stopped over to borrow something. Bless her heart!
      I loved visiting! Wishing it were in person. 😉
