Cashew Oatmeal Cookies
Thanks for going to pick up that saw off of craigslist with the husband. You rock. By the way, I hear you shoot archery, want to go shoot some foam animals sometime? Hope you like the cookies.
Yup that's pretty much the gist of the note I sent along with these cookies. I've never met Matt, and that note to him doesn't sound creepy at all as a first time intro... ok yes, yes it does.
Do you buy stuff off craigslist? We totally have, although sometimes you meet some seriously interesting people... apparently the guy selling the saw was one of them... glad I wasn't there! :) Thanks again Matt!
