Hail Mary

So yesterday I decided that maybe it was time to take down all the Halloween decorations. Not that I had that many. I'm not a big "holiday decorator" when it comes to my home. I put up a few simple touches here and there, but that's about it.

A couple weeks before Halloween my dad and step mom sent the kids a great package...cookies and a darling pumpkin cookie jar! Needless to say, we gobbled up those cookies at record pace, so the poor pumpkin was empty bellied.

Fast forward a couple weeks...I had dumped a bunch of Snickers into Mr. Empty Belly Pumpkin and about every 7.295 seconds I would go visit him and grab one (really, where did these extra 5 pounds come from?). Well, yesterday when I went to go put Empty Belly away I opened him up to grab another Snickers and put them elsewhere, look what I found...

I nearly split my already-to-tight-jeans!!!

I truly believe in God whispers.

I'm not sure if that is a God whisper or a great big smack upside the head. I'm pretty sure I heard God say, "My Child...quit eating the Snickers or you're going to weigh 500 lbs by Christmas."

Of course it could just be a really funny joke by my 7-year-old (it was her Hail Mary card).

Whatever it was...right then and there I quit the Snickers cold turkey.

It's a sign. A sign that you need to send me all the Snickers.

Hahahahaha!!!! You are too funny.

I mean there looks to only be 7 left - might as well finish 'em off.

I think I gained 5 pounds thanks to Halloween candy as well. And, now here comes Thanksgiving and all it's yummy goodness. I'm in trouble. I better go out to the garage to the Goodwill bags and dig that bigger size back out.

Hey, just to reply to the comment you left on my blog...
I just started using Nioxin on my hair today. I'll let you know if it works.
My friend also mentioned the new Joan Rivers product. You might google it.

Thanks for the support. It can be quite depressing.

I'm like Dawn. There is only a few left so finish them off. I confiscate all of son's snicker bars. The only reason I run the Tulsa Run is so that I can get two free ones at the end. (I could take more but I limit myself to 2). And besides, maybe you needed to add five pounds. Just ask the Weatherman. He'll tell you, I'm sure, that there is just more of you to love.

OMG! You are super funny!

I keep a secret stash of chocolate (usually snickers)in a drawer in the kitchen when I feel the "I'm gonna die without a piece of chocolate" syndrome coming on. The other day, I had a small meltdown. Hubby found my secret stash and ate them all up. I almost died without the chocolate fix. True story.

Love that you found Gucci. Isn't she a riot?

That is hilarious!! You crack my shizzle up, Alyssa. Can I have the snickers you didn't eat? :-)
