I think I might be dying. Not literally, just… a part of me. You see, a couple of days ago my sons brought home some booklets for their fundraiser. Being as how they are in a community preschool, we have a lot of volunteering to do as well as fundraising. The fundraiser is… drum roll please… Purdy’s Chocolates! That’s right. I have two beautiful, detailed booklets packed full of gorgeous chocolaty treats sitting on my counter.
Hedge hogs, almond bark, mint melties – it’s all there. Page after page of decadent treat… and I want it ALL!! The Sweet Georgia Browns stare at me. The English Toffee whispers my name and the little foil Santa winks every time our eyes meet. Like I said, I think I might be dying.
It’s almost painful, staring at these glossy magazines. I am definitely putting an order in! A small one, but still. Gotta get me some peppermint bark, and maybe splurge on some toffee. And a small box of assorted chocolates. And… aww crap. I’m in trouble.
Mmmmmmm! I love chocolates!!
David is a little salesman! It’s so cute. On the phone with his Grandpa Ron he says “we have chocolates, would you like to buy some?”. He is so adorable, and a charmer, if we went door-to-door David would clean house.
After this fundraising program is over, I am throwing away the booklets!! I have to! I am trying to lose weight and get fit and healthy, and staring at these things is NOT the way to go! Maybe it would be better if I just throw them away now, and cut a check for the preschool. Out of sight, out of mind, right? No crunchy bark taunting me, no creamy chocolate beckoning me. OR I can just keep staring, dream, and order a little somethin’ somethin’ for myself!
*** If anyone is interested in buying some chocolates, just give me a call. (if you don’t have my number you can msg my fb) Prices range from $10 - $50 and up. We need to have orders in by mid-November, and I pick up the orders Dec. 4th.***
