It's that time of year again! National Girl Scouts Cookie Weekend! February 7-8 is your weekend to celebrate all things Girl Scout Cookies!

L    Let's admit it:There is nothing quite like curling up with a good book, a box of Thin Mints, and a big glass of milk. Heaven! And Samoas...oh don't even get me started on a box of Samoas because I will finish them all on my own! 

Some of my fondest memories as a little girl are related to my time as a Girl Scout. Girl Scouting fostered both my friendships and my sense of adventure. My first full week away from home was spent at a Girl Scout camp, where my budding independence and love for the great outdoors were born, at age 11. I just loved meeting up with my friends afterschool, wearing my Girl Scout uniform and proudly showing off my hard-earned badges. I was a Girl Scout throughout elementary and middle school. 


      My Mom was my Girl Scout troop leader, and I simply can't wait until my daughter is able to join Girl Scoutss so I can lead a troop, too! Next year, she will be able to take part in Daisy Scouts, the first level of girl scouting for girls in Kindergarten and 1st grade. 

I also fondly remember selling Girl Scout Cookies - technically my first job! - which taught me how to create a good sales pitch  - a pretty easy task when you're selling Thin Mints and Samoas!  Selling Girl Scout Cookies gives girls the change to experience working with others and running a mini-business. Every time you buy cookies from a Girl Scout, you're helping a young girl learn sales and business skills! Priceless!

Next weekend is the official, National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend. Here are 5 ways to participate: 
  • ORDER   Take a moment to meet this year's cookies and enter your zipcode in the Cookie Finder to be connected with a local Girl Scout Cookie seller. 
  • ATTEND the Girl Scout Cookie Green Carpet Premiere in NYC on February 7 and get your hands on your favorite Girl Scout Cookies. See details.
  • JOIN the largest virtual Girl Scout cookie party for the opportunity to win a year's supply of your favorite Girl Scout cookie! Party starts February 5. Check it out!
  • SHARE videos or pictures from your own Girl Scout cookie festivities on facebook.com/GirlScoutCookieProgram.
  • DOWNLOAD the Official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app and find your local #cookieboss.

I'm so thankful to the troop leaders who led the way for me as a young Girl Scout, and more than anything, I'm thankful for the friendships and experiences that I gained as a Girl Scout. Buying Girl Scout Cookies is a great (and easy! and delicious!) way to support an organization that supports our girls. Buy your Girl Scout Cookies today!
