Do you ever have those cravings you just can't shake? I had one this afternoon. I wanted some decadent chocolate. The problem was, I had eaten it all! Nabisco chocolate chip cookies just didn't have any appeal. Instead of caving to the craving, I called my neighbor and went for a walk. This was much needed after a week of sitting in my favorite purple chair!
With a two mile walk behind me and an exhausted Riley Dog on the porch, I ran to the mailbox before setting off to run errands. Look what was inside!
My buddy, Chris, from I'm Not Old, I'm Vintage, had a Valentine's Contest. She sent out 15 prizes. That is not a typo! FIFTEEN! I won a prize in the category of "You Make Me Feel Good Reading Your Blog." Woohoo! Just so you know, this award goes both ways! Only, Chris didn't get a package of chocolate in the mail from me!
And LOOK! Somebody knew I was having a craving and timed the arrival of this package perfectly. And Chris sent the good stuff! Lindt truffles, jelly candy, coconut dumdums! Ya'll don't need to know how many pieces are left and whether or not I shared....of course not!
And not just edible goodies! The cutest little lady bug filled with bubble bath and yummy smelling bath gel and lotion and the cutest rose shaped scrubber that will never see water for fear of ending it's cuteness! I'll have to clear the orchids out of my bathtub (they spend the winter in there) so I can pamper myself and eat that last piece of chocolate.
Chris, this smooch is for you! Thanks for making my day and ending my craving! You're the best!
