HNT - Thin Mint Part Deux (retro)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

If you are a long time reader, you'll remember that last year I was victim to the Thin Mint Debacle. In short, I somehow eluded - completely and unintentionally - every Girl Scout in Northwestern Illinois and was not able to secure a single box of the highly coveted Thin Mints. Fortunately, two fellow bloggers felt so sorry for me liked me so much that they shared their stash, and they were properly rewarded with the Thin Mint HNT and, later, the Thin Mint Blizzard HNT.

This year, I tackled a gaggle of Girl Scouts I made sure to track down two purchasing sources and placed my order ahead of time. Since it's the first HNT of March, I'm sharing a retro Thin Mint HNT this week (i.e. no fleshy nekkidness), but next week might just be a different story!

Don't even get me started with the thin mints. That easy-to-nibble, tasty snack that I can go through a box at a time. EVIL girl scouts!! That being said, I enjoyed the retro HNT. Great idea.
Take care,
FMD

Oh my god...this is a fucking great picture! Your eyes, your hair, and the frantic attempt to hold all those boxes...fucking beautiful! HHNT!

Your eyes say, "Touch my thin mints and I'll rip your lips off!"

Evening said...

OH MY GOSH!! YOU HAVE NEVER LOOKED MORE ATTRACTIVE TO ME!! I have been low carb dieting and praying my cookies would not show up just yet. They are my weakness.
You look stunning in green mint!!! You look just yummy!

Yes! Times are tough here so I only bought four boxes of Thin Mints this year. Oh, yum to them. Enjoy yours.

I'm a tag-a-long kinda gal...smile.

Adam Apple said...

Fleshy nekkidness or not, this is still a fun HNT. I love it, particularly if you will share your Thin Mints with me.

Osbasso said...

I'm 'green' with envy! I haven't accosted any Girl Scouts around here yet (which is probably a good thing), so I might be the one out of luck.

Good thing you bought lots of boxes! :-P

SleepingDreamer said...

It seems the girl scouts here are out of Thin Mints.. I wonder, I wonder! The best cookies they make and they're so very hard to find- I got a call the other day from my out of state sister and she can't find them either. Conspiracy? Perhaps!

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

This is *very* St. Patrick's day appropriate, too.

And clearly, no one is getting your thin mints from you! (Sharing is overrated anyway.)

Love the classic-style HNT, too.

Howard Bagby said...

I have not seen a girl scout in about 3 years. Of course the fact that I work third shift and am rarely out in the daytime might have a little to do with that. That was a great picture by the way.

Amorous Rocker said...

Lol. Cute post and picture. I've never had Thin Mint cookie before. I was a Girl Scout for one year when my mom enrolled me in hopes of me being less of a tomboy but I didn't want to be there so I wanted no part of anything Girl Scout like. Which means I never touched a cookie, lol. I fear that I might be missing out, lol.

Happy HNT!

This is a brilliant picture!

Being in the UK I've never had the pleasure of eating a Girl Scout Cookie, and this disappoints me somewhat!

Enjoy!

Happy HNT!

Biscuit said...

I'm telling you and Vixen...NEXT YEAR ASK ME! Seeing as I have a Girl Scout and all!!!

I retro'd with you. :)

NY Diva said...

Fabulous! It's like, "Mine! ALL MINE! Muahahahaha!"

Another Suburban Mom said...

Love your photo! I swear that there is crack in those cookies, but a special kind so you only crave them once a year!

Hubman said...

Mmm, thin mints...

I allow myself one box per year. They're usually gone in about 24 hrs :-(

Cool pic!

Happy HNT!

Mike said...

Now those look mint-ishus* (is that a word??) lol

HHNT

buffalodick said...

My wife will get nailed by my niece for 4-5 boxes...

Real Live Lesbian said...

LMAO! I love it!

Now pass me a cookie, dammit.

Happy HNT!

HHNT

Saucy Wildcat said...

Oh girl! I haven't found any yet. Your picture is making me crazy! YUM!

snugs said...

I refuse to give in to the urge this year, I am still trying to get 5 more holiday pounds off! You appear to have turned over a new HNT leaf lately, is this intentional?

doggybloggy said...

I could live on thin mints.....

Professor Fate said...

Great idea. Happy HNT

Jay said...

You could have a big Thin Mint Party Weekend now!

Thursday's Child said...

I love it! We're currently hoarding two boxes in the back of the cupboard, but shhh, don't tell!

Bond said...

YEA for tackling girl scouts....

~c said...

Karen said...

LOL. I love your eyes in this photo.

Ro said...

I have absolutely no idea whether Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies (have I got this right?) are tasty or not.

You certainly seem to like them though - and I love the pic! Can I see a hint of a cheeky (greedy?) smile in your eyes?

Enjoy ... and try not to eat them all at once ;)

Happy HNT!

autumn said...

oh you got them! yay! i love this picture and you have lovely eyes.

happy HNT

Average Chick said...

Throw me one? :) PWEASE?? :)

Moosekahl said...

I think you need an intervention! I'll be right over to eat at least 2 boxes for you in one sitting. Happy HNT!

g-man said...

Crap I thought I commented yesterday... guess not...

I like the peek-a-boo wild eyes behind the cookies. Well done.

My wife is the cookie mom for my eldest daughter's troop. At one time there may be as many as 200 boxes of just Thin Mints in my garage! (not to mention the thousand other boxes)

I really enjoyed the flash back, thanks.
