The Most Decadent Delicia Ever To Cross My Lips
Is delicia even a word? I doubt it. It does describe this particular food item well though. Delicia. It could make a cute name, no? Okay maybe not. Anyway, you may have seen this purchase in my last post.
Well, I was trying to wait for my new camera to post about it…
But, I couldn’t fight the urge any longer! I had to try it.
After one spoonful out of the jar (my phone ate the pic), I swirled it with some cashew butter and spread it on a pita.
Let me tell you, this was the most delicious chocolate experience of my life!! This may be my new favorite food. But, then with Maranatha and chocolate in the same jar, how could I go wrong?
It was much better than this stuff
I saw this in the grocery store yesterday. I immediately wondered how pure Hershey’s chocolate really is. I consulted their website but I could not find a complete list of ingredients…hmmmm… I assume they are listed on the wrapper of the bar. I haven’t bought one for so long that I wouldn’t know what’s in them.
The best part of my week has been all of the mail I have received!!
My sister sent me my first 24th birthday card!
She wrote the sweetest message inside!! My birthday isn’t until Saturday. I felt so bad because her birthday was on the 14th and I just put her gift in the mail!
I also got a card from a dear friend. Then, a survey! Can you tell I just love to get mail! I pay most of my bills online (save a tree 🙂 so I only get “good mail”
Main Grocery Shopper = me!! Is it wierd that I had fun filling this out? I put down that I buy organic and health food so hopefully that will get me some good coupons.
Speaking of coupons, I logged onto Kashi’s website recently to see if they posted coupons and I found that they have a sample deal going on.
I like their fun packaging
Why yes I am , thank you 😉
As if that didn’t excite me enough…
My sample cereal! How cute is this tiny box? It’s only slightly bigger than my checkbook!
I don’t know yet. But, I will be sure to let you all know as soon as I try this.
I also got my Share package! I signed up to swap some of my favorite things with another reader of Special K Treatment’s blog.
This is what I sent…
I also sent some peppermint tea and dark chocolate along with these!
This is what I recieved from Kristie!
MY PHONE ATE THE PRODUCT PICS 😦
But, she sent me a jar of regular PB 2 and a jar of chocolate PB 2! I have been wanting to get my hands on some PB 2 for so long! She also sent some Clif shot blocks and another item that I can’t find the pic of!
I tried this for the first time this week
Trader Joe’s egg white salad. Now, I love Trader Joe’s. I have not bought a product that I don’t like. But, to be honest, this stuff had no flavor. It tasted like…well, nothing. I only ate 2 bites …snack fail as Janetha says.
See those black spots? Yup, that’s mold. I called Horizon Organic to let them know. I don’t get angry about that kind of thing. I just wanted them to know that they have some moldy cheese floating around the ‘Nati. So, I guess they’re sending me some coupons for a new package. I really like their products so I don’t think this will stop me from ever buying Horizon’s products again. Snuffy eats their American Cheese Slices and String Cheese almost every day!
Now, it’s time to get serious. I’m kind of frustrated about a couple thing, guys. First, I have been ready to run for a long time. I was in the midst of training with TEAM IN TRAINING when I became pregnant with my daughter 2 years ago. I was not anticipating the pregnancy and I was a fairly new runner. So, my doctor suggested I call it quits until after I gave birth. Now, many women run well into their pregnancies. But, once again, my body was not used to long distance running. Anyway, I really loved running. I felt such accomplishment and pride. I loved the time I had to myself to ponder the day to day issues as I ran. I loved the “good sore” feeling that comes with beginning a new routine and I LOVED the great feeling that came with my post run stretches! But, after I had Snuffy, I was pressed for time and could only spend minimal time at the gym. So, I stuck to what I knew. I went back to the gym 3 weeks post delivery (doctor approved) and did resistance training and eliptical intervals because they were easy and familiar. I was so new to running when I did run that I had not even bought my first pair of running shoes. I was still running in cross-trainers! But, I miss it so! I have really been itching to get back to it for the past few month. If you have been reading my blog from the beginning, you know that I have had a few health issues lately. My doctor suggested I not start any new routines until we figure out what’s going on with my body. Here I am locked and loaded, ready to start training for a half marathon (how cool would that be?!) but I can’t. I hate waiting. Sorry for the rant.
Some of you saw my post on my camera decision. I had told Mallard about the two Canon’s I would prefer if he was going to purchase one for my birthday. Well, one was significantly more expensive. But, when he took me to Best Buy to look at them, he said he would get the more expensive one. I was ecstatic! Since I wasn’t sure what color I wanted , I told him I would wait to order online. So, I decided on the color and told him what I chose. He then got online to order and said, “Oh I didn’t remember this being so expensive”. Apparently, he thought it was abotu $5o cheaper. “That’s why I was so surprised you agreed to buy this one”, I said, “I’m okay with the other one. It’s still a great camera. I just know that I want a Canon.” A few months ago, Mallard had expressed how much he loved his work camera which was a Sony Cyber Shot. “That’s great,” I said, “but the Canon’s get the best reviews…I just know I want a Canon.” After Mallards price confustion, I figured he would get me the less expensive Canon which was the 1200. My birthday isn’t until Saturday so I still had hope for my first pick, the 780 IS. Nope. Tonight he comes home with the new sony cyber shot in hot pink. He handed me the box, which shows the gray version, and I was in such shock that I was speechless. I have to admit, I was a lil let down… He said, “This has all the same features as the Canon 780 IS but it was the price of the 1200″….I was still speechless. He said, ” Open it up, it’s pink” I could tell he was proud of himself so I thanked him and tried not to act like he had just burst my balloon. I told him thank you and that it was a nice camera. I said, “I just wish I would have known that you were going to do this. I wouldn’t have spent so much time researching cameras and reading reviews.” Basically, he bought what he thought was best not what I wanted. I had looked at the pink cyber shot and decided that I wanted to go with a Canon. I’m sure it’s a good camera. In fact, the battery is charging downstairs right now. I suppose I just like to make my own decisions. Had the whole thing been a surprise, I would have been ecstatic. But, he asked me what I wanted and I told him specifically. He even took me to the store and , to my surprise, offered to buy my first choice camera. I am sure I will love the Cyber Shot though. I don’t want to be ungrateful.
I ended my night with the DVR’d first episode of this season’s BIGGEST LOSER. I am such a junkie for this show! I used to be a huge Jillian Michaels fan but with her recent “supplement” release, I’m not so sure anymore. Anyway, I was so excited to see some girls close to my age! Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against the others. So far, my favorite contestents are Amanda, Rebecca and Coach Mo! Do you guys watch? How do you feel about Jillian’s new supplement?
Would you keep the Cyber Shot? Would you exchange it for the Canon 1200 with better reviews but less zoom and few mega pixels? Or would you save up the difference and get your first choice camera?
