oh la la

i went to the mall last night to pick up a few gifts
i was pleasantly surprised that i didn’t feel the overwhelming desire to punch anyone!!!
the mall was quiet so there was no pushing or being bumped into or rude people to contend with!
 
anyways…i went to go get some gifts…from Laura Secord.
When i was there a few weeks ago i noticed that they are selling board games made out of chocolate.  how cool is that?
They have Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble and Clue.
all the pieces are made out of chocolate.
whoever came up with that idea is a genius!!!
 
So i picked up a few of those and crossed off a couple of names from my list and felt satisfied.
 
I don’t know what inspired me to ask the lady at the cash… but i did.
 
“do you have any sugar free chocolate?”
 
I don’t care who you are…how little of a sweet tooth you have…Laura Secord is hard to resist.  Everything looks good, smells good…i get a sugar rush just walking by there.
I wanted a piece of chocolate dammit!
 
The lady behind the cash showed us her no sugar added section, and a small box was purchased.  10 small pieces of chocolate for over 13 dollars. 
Ouch.
But isn’t that the way?  everything that is supposed to be good for you (or better for you) and healthier is way more expensive??
For 3 pieces of chocolate, there were 6 grams of carbs.  not bad my friends, not bad at all.
 
Anyways so i had a true Canadian evening.  Stopped at Tim Hortons on my way home, sat down on the couch and opened up the chocolates and savoured every bite.
 
Coffee and chocolate on one of the coldest evenings…with zero guilt.
 
Someone recently told me to find the pleasure in winter, and my god i think i just did!
