Have you seen these before?!...I got these last night, after a conversation with my blogger friend, Cindy, of CinLynn Boutique. She recently went on a very relaxing vacation to Mexico...
...and brought back some coconut candy! I went to bed thinking about what that might taste like. :-] I tried to get myself some. What I came up with was what you see in the header photo. They're...
...Coconut M&Ms!! I'd never seen them before! WOW! Are they good!
Just like the other M&Ms, they have little "M"s on them. But I was fascinated that some of them have other little symbols on them too...
...Okay, so I'm easily fascinated! LOL And I can be pretty lame sometimes too! I was eating away...noticed the symbols and wondered...."Uh Oh! Is there some contest going on or something and I've got the bag of M&Ms with the special M&Ms in them, with these symbols on them?!!"....LAME! ^_^
Hubby fed into it by saying "WOW! Maybe that's our million dollar ticket to full time relaxation!"....So, I went to 'Google' on the computer, ignored the tennis match for a while...and checked for any information on my million dollar M&Ms! ^_^
What I found out was that the symbols are just pictures of beach umbrellas and open coconuts....a little something special for the coconut M&Ms....NO MILLION DOLLAR PAY-OFF for me!!! ^_^ Should have known!! They also have what I THINK are some new peanut butter ones too.
But there's no special symbols on these...
...just the regular "M"s. I know because I checked all of them! ^_^ No! I didn't EAT all of them....just checked them....just in case!!...Does it sound like I might need a vacation to Mexico too?!...Well, I might!! I would sure like to get out of the path of that big snow storm I hear is heading our way tomorrow!
Maybe that's why I went to bed and dreamed of chocolate candy bars and palm trees! LOL In my dream I had melted chocolate all over my face!....Thanks Cindy! ^_^ I had to look in my stash box to see if my other candy bar was still there and I wasn't turning into some kind of chocolate 'Night Stalker'! ^_^ ...Yep! Still there!!
It was just a dream!!...A good...sweet...chocolate-faced dream! :-] Don't you love dreams like that?! You can have all the fun and memories of eating stuff you ought not, with none of the calories...and no sugar coma!! ^_^
Oh Well....on to other things...first, I need to tell you that Velma of SnowflakeDreams1 has added even MORE things to that Giveaway bundle!!! Now this wall hanging is in there too!
She says that the contents of the winning gift are gonna keep getting bigger until the day of the Giveaway, which is February 1, 2011. So get on over there and comment so you can enter your name.
Also I wanted to share with you that I finished the slippers with the flowers! I wanted to show you how they came out.
They are some of the ugliest,...^_^ ...cuddliest, warmest things I've made in a while...And the flower works!
I'll be listing these, and all of the other slippers I finished, in my shop some time today...including the custom slippers...
...and the small gray and black ones.
I still have some fingerless gloves to make and a scarf for two customers, but I'm waiting for yarn to arrive for both of them. So, what will I do until it gets here?!! Yep!...
:-) I'm going to carry it everywhere I go...but mostly...in my dreams!
And yes!...I wrote a poem about it! ^_^
It's not right...I know,
to start your day with a chocolate face;
But the M&Ms with peanuts
gave my dream such a lovely taste.
It got me really thinking
about the candies of my youth,
like "Pixie Sticks" and "Twizzlers",
WOW! I had such a big 'Sweet Tooth'!
I remember in the playground,
trading candy like a stock.
It's a wonder you never hear
of kids going into "candy shock"!
'Hershey's with almonds',
'Kit Kats' and 'Peanut Bars';
Chocolate 'Reese's cup',
'3 Musketeers' and 'Mars'.
'Pay Days', 'Sugar Babies',
'Nestle's Crunch' and 'Heath Bars' too;
'York Peppermint patties',
because hard candies just won't do.
'Snickers', 'Milky Way',
All that chocolate, good for me,
but not good for household pets!
'Twix', 'Reese's Pieces',
'Almond Joy', and Oh Yeah!, 'Mounds';
'Tootsie Rolls' and 'Whoppers'
I could eat them by the pounds!
'Dove Bar', 'Now or Laters',
'Laffy Taffy', 'Zagnut', 'Skor'.
Okay, I'm gonna stop now,
but there's plenty, plenty more!
Now that I'm grown up
I don't eat candy all the time.
Instead, I have sweet dreams of it,
and write a candy rhyme!
