Tonight (around 7 p.m) I went to Walmart....looking precisely the way I did when I rolled out of bed this morning at 10:30 a.m. (Life's rough I tell ya:) and lucky/poor Jarom. Ha!
While I was picking up the "standard" 5 items:
1 Gallon of vitamin D milk for the little guy (check)
1 package of apple juice boxes (check)
1 box go-gurts (check)
I happened upon the Christmas Candy isle.
Yep...Christmas candy. Holy Freaking Crap (my mom hates when I say that :)
What's the date again? Could it really be...?
REGARDLESS...I was ecstatic.
For all obvious reasons of course...but mainly the bell shaped and TREE shaped Reeses.
Oh---how I begged Jarom to let me fill the cart with them:)
Do any of you know what I'm talking about???
I think it is hilarious that I (we...I'm hoping there are more of you out there) never hesitate to pay TRIPLE for something...just because it has been melted and re-shaped to the perfect little symbols of the holiday:) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the egg shaped ones at Easter. I'm a sucker for any and all things Holiday.......
and YES they taste completely different than the original ones honey:)
I exercised wonderful self-control...and somehow made it out of there (the isle and the store) without a single treat in tow.
THE PROBLEM: It is now 1 a.m. and I am pacing the house in need of chocolate. Preferably a Bell shaped Reeses... yet there's nothing but leftover Halloween-sized Starbursts pouches. Disgusting. I hate those.
Wierd, I know.
SO...I did the unthinkable. I found my mom's Visiting Teaching goodie bags...(the one's that she still needs to deliver) and helped myself. Inside each little "gift" there was chocolate. Even better...Reeses. Could I seriously be so lucky???? I was.
I opened them...ate every thing inside that contained Chocolate.... and am feeling much much better now, thank you.
1-Make new Visiting Teaching Goodie Bags for my mom!
2-Possibly Beg Forgiveness....
3-Head straight back to Walmart and buy myself a bag...JUST in case a similar emergency presents itself in the future.
Here's to the Christmas Candy isle at Walmart. I totally love it.
