...Not Literally, of course.
I stopped at the grocery tonight to pick up a few things for the week. I was hungry and feeling a lot less than my most perky Buttercup self, which is the worst time to grocery shop. I've been eating so healthily since my return from BlogHer and I've made every effort to stick to a list when I grocery shop, which saves both money and calories. My list did include a single sized serving of one of my favorite flavors of ice cream, mint chocolate chip.
Alas, no cups of mint chocolate chip, and I was able to walk away from the other alluring treats. But as I rounded the aisle I just about walked into the very early Halloween candy display. I love candy, and it doesn't have to be anything fancy. I am content with a Hershey bar or a KitKat. The mini-bars are the most treacherous for me. They are small and look so innocent, but the first one is just a tease and before I know it I've had three or four, and there is a pile of little candy wrappers all around. It took every ounce of determination to wheel my cart past this tower of temptation. But I am pleased to say I wheeled right to the fruit section and placed a container of watermelon in my cart.
This was my first victory over candy for the 2014 Halloween season. I know it's going to be a tough fight, but mini-candy bars, you're not going to beat Buttercup this year. You've had your seasons, but this one belongs to me.
As always, thanks for stopping by. So enjoy my visitors and wish you all a wonderful Wednesday.
