But, today is a special day.
It's Hawaiian Statehood Day!
Yeah OK, it's kind of a controversial holiday since Hawaii wasn't that keen on joining the USA.
But hey, it's fun to be part of a group instead of being a rouge piece of crap organization, I mean state, that leaves it's conference, I mean country, hanging. But I digress.
Hmm...although BYU does have a Hawaii campus...grrrr.
Anyway, it's a good a reason as any for cookies!
Hawaiian Drops (stolen from the Great American Cookie Book)
