All About Chocolate!

Do you have a hall monitor in your life? I do -- actually more than one -- a little scary , isn't it! Even scarier -- a chocolate monitor!!!!

I suppose the first step to recovery is admitting there is a problem, so ok, ok,
I have a problem -- I'm a chocolate addict!
I have a bit of chocolate in the morning, mid-morning, lunch, afternoon and evening.

Is that too much??

I don't really think so and am wishing the chocolate monitor would stop already.
My enjoyment of chocolate is being curtailed and that is not a good thing.

So, while I was thinking of chocolate and plotting where to nab another mini-candy bar the other day, I decided to check out the Hershey store. One of our favorite parts of visiting Chicago last summer was the Hershey store -- YUM!

Guess what -- I found a ton of PERFECT Christmas gifts for those other lucky people who love chocolate and . . . who will share with me!

Mr. Tennis is definitely getting this adorable cup full of Hershey kisses from me and Miss Maddy!

Just what every tween girl needs -- some chocolate lip gloss!

Hey look, I am hitting the four basic food groups with my love of all things chocolate!

Next up -- my blossoming Star*bucks addiction!

I loved this post Jan..... We all have our addictions, don't we? I can overdue the chocolate too. In fact we just made brownies with peanut butter icing the other day and I cannot stay out of them. I love my chocolate, but add peanut butter to it and I am DONE!!!

I think Mr. Tennis and Maddy will LOVE their gifts!
