Halloween 2012!

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

For Halloween this year, we decided to give out candy and we also used our little canon photo printer, and our digital camera, and we printed on-site pictures for people that wanted to have a keepsake for Halloween! The BF bought me extra photo paper and printer ink for the little canon printer, so we had extra to print out photos! We also gave out Halloween stickers, and these printable coupons that the American Dental Association put out that was for a free download of Plants Vs. Zombies for your PC or Mac computer. Apparently, it costs $19.99 usually, but was free with the code on the coupon!! Those were both the BF’s ideas. He’s so creative! Something different than the usual candy.

This was our setup. 🙂 And the BF also set up his portable speaker, and streamed Halloween themed music from it! It sounded so scary! Everything was so cool.

Mika was also in the Halloween spirit with her orange Halloween bandana. (She had a groomer’s appointment today, so they put on an orange bandana for her.) LOL

Tiny Chocolates!

March 18, 2012 Leave a comment

I’ve been looking for these tiny chocolate candies that I read about on Taralynn McNitt’s food/life blog, called Undressed Skeleton, for about a week now. They’re from Whole Foods! I’ve just been a little busy so spotting them in the crowded store when you’re short on time is a bit hard. However, I finally found them!

They’re the 365 Everyday Value brand from Whole Foods. I bought DARK CHOCOLATE because that’s supposedly healthier for you, but they have them available in MILK CHOCOLATE too. 🙂

 

They’re PERFECT for if you’re looking for a sweet treat after dinner or a meal, or to kill that craving brought on by a sweet tooth. It’s thin and a little bigger than the size of a quarter.

 

I have a slight problem controlling my cravings for an ice cream cone, some chocolates, or sugary treats after I eat.  If I make myself an ice cream cone, I build it up to look like one of those nice big ice cream cones like in the cartoons, or if I have a box of chocolates, I’ll find myself “sneaking” one more piece, and then one more, and then one more… I figured that this would be perfect because I can limit myself to a tiny piece and it’ll put the sugary craving to rest. Then I won’t get stuck sitting with an open box of chocolates on my lap. Hahahaha.. :p
