Life just isn’t as sweet without some chocolate!


There is nothing like topping off a fabulous afternoon with a few yummy chocolates!

I had a whirlwind of a weekday! Usually during the week I am boring as can be. I exercise, cook, clean, watch TV, and go to bed. But last night was different! After running a couple of errands I had a fab manicure. There is a new OPI color called “Sand in My Suit” which I just love! It is always nice to find a new color I like (simple pleasures…) I think I will use it on the day of the wedding for both my feet and toes!

After my wet nails dried and I smudged them up nicely at the gym, I went home for dinner… and dessert. Staring up at me from my cute little island (which I am going to miss very much) was this fabulous box of See’s Candies. Do you remember these?

No? Well, let me help you remember…

I am a chocolate box tester, the most annoying kind of chocolate eater! I like to take nibbles of several chocolates before I can commit to one (or, errrrr, 3!) Anyone else this way?

This was my favorite one.. Look at that beauty:

I am definitely a person that likes to enjoy sweets when it is worth it. These were soooo worth it! You must try them! They were so insanely fresh and yummy MMmmm!!!! But now, after testing a few, I will put them away until, well, tomorrow! Ok ok, I’ll put them away for a  few days haha.

These See’s Candies came into my life at the perfect time- I am about to plan my Easter menu and need to have Easter chocolate on the menu of course!! Easter is one of the only times we have a lot of chocolate in my house, and I don’t mind! As it will be my last chance to host something nice for my family in Rhode Island, I am going to take advantage and host Easter! I will be back later with some menu ideas!

    Until your post I had never heard of See’s (Long Island doesn’t have them, not sure about NYC). I am going to get my hands on these! They look great!

  19. I have ruined my nails so often after a great manicure that now I buy the polish before I leave the shop, so I can “touch” them up!
