Amanda's friend Darci has been visiting us from New Jersey for the past week or so and even though she's a very nice girl with manners that I wish my own daughter had, it's been a little overwhelming at times having to deal with two goofy, giggling, soda-guzzling girls with apparent bottomless pits for stomachs. Peace, quiet, and food in the house has apparently gone the way of the Dodo for now!
Having a house guest is not always a bad thing, though - especially when your house guest's mother is nice enough to surprise you with a box of gourmet chocolate-covered strawberries and half-dipped cookies as a thank you for letting her daughter come up and visit! Did I mention that it's okay for Darci to come up anytime?
Of course the trick now is to make sure I actually get a taste of these sweet looking treats before the two bottomless pits descend upon them!
