Okay, okay, they are just M&M cookies, but this title sounds a lot more fun, right? I baked these cookies the day Alex and I told our jobs that we're expecting. I thought it would be fun to bring in a treat while sharing our good news. Of course, the day I do this is the day that everyone was on vacation in my office!
