fetch me my bikini

so i have gone and made my decision…unless someone here is going to try and sway me!
i’ve been wanting to get away for a while now…and the opportunity to do so has come up.
oh universe…i love you.
see…put things out into the universe…and you may just get exactly what you want.
i’ll get into things at the blog next door…i am not going into details of my trip here.  i am just going to tell you why i made the decision i made.
I had two destinations in mind.
My first choice was New York.  Hello…i love New York!!  i could most certainly go into debt in New York and not mind one bit 🙂
and so my mind was made up.
then, another location was presented to me…and i started to think…(say it with me – SHOCKER!)
how long have i been bitching about the cold??  so why do i want to leave somewhere cold, to go somewhere cold?
if i am going anywhere…i am heading to the warmth.
so what did i base my decision on???
honestly?  do you really want to know.
obviously…the weather.  somewhere i can get out and about and get my exercise…and swim out doors.
and what sealed the deal??? 
the food.
anywhere i choose to dine will be completely low carb friendly…i will have all the meat my little heart desires…and beans lol
think about it…steak, or prime rib every night for dinner???
besides i have already been to New York.
kids, i am off to Texas.
(that is if no one tries to talk me into New York lol)
almost done booking everything…
TEXAS!  who knew.
what’s the world here for if i can’t explore it?

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. 
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!
