Hippie Daze.

Y’all…I’m pretty sure I just used 1/2 a jar of coconut oil in a cookie recipe.

Better than a stick of butter, right?

Ahhhh…my hands were an oily mess. 🙂

Coconut oil really does wonders.

It makes for the softest skin ever.

Oh, don’t tell me you haven’t rubbed it on your legs after shaving.

This is coming from someone who has to shave her legs practically every day.

I’m a freaking monkey.

I was born w/ a full head of black hair. Gah. Italian genes.

Winter, please come quick so my legs don’t have to see day light…or a razor for that matter.

If I wasn’t such a chicken I’d get them waxed…but I’d rather be a chicken 🙂

Let’s be hippies this week, k.

Let’s walk around with no shoes on, our toes painted neon orange, with wavy locks of hair fastened lightly to our forehead by a thin, bandana headband.

Maybe we should throw up the peace sign too.

Lawd knows we could all use a little peace right now.

Lindsay Lohan seems at peace w/ herself at the moment.

At least that is what she said at her sit down w/ Oprah on Sunday night.

You don’t lie to Oprah.

It’s like lying to your mom.

You just don’t do it.

Anyway, we are total hippies this week.

So let’s make some hippie cookies.

Hippie because they’ve got hemp seeds in em’.

When you are a hippie, you eat, drink, wear and sleep 100% hemp.

So, why not throw them in our cookies.

Let’s put some coconut and lime zest/juice up in there too.
