"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters
compared to what lies within us."

Today, I had a doctor's appointment, which is not a fun way to spend the afternoon.  I decided to make a pit stop at my very favorite candy store in order to make my journey interesting. It's one of those places where they have rows and rows of bins and you can scoop to your heart's desire. I got everyone their own little bags and I got myself two big bags!

Nothing better than a giant gummy butterfly! Oh, the joy! 

I had big dreams of taking some artistic photographs with my beautiful candy....

but little fingers kept creeping in......

A mountain of pure deliciousness!

Who could resist that face! (actually, I did manage to resist her cuteness; she got a Vanilla wafer.)

Sugar smiles! 

Victoria got so excited that she figured out how to flip herself out of the chair and zip on over. Now how in the world did she know what candy would taste like? You know I only feed my kids broccoli and wheat germ. 

All gone! (not really, but the candy is hidden very well!) I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow! 

Tell me what your favorite treats are! 


  1. I am a sucker for those little flavored tootsie rolls...lemon, orange, lime, cherry...vanilla...YUMMMMM

  2. Francesca looks SO pretty in the vanilla wafer picture!!!

  3. Anything with peanut butter! Or, if I'm splurging at a real candy store along the Oregon coast then seafoam is the best treat ever.

  4. Those are the cutest "creeping in" fingers EVER!

    I have a weakness for M&Ms, of any kind! :)

  5. Nutella on a slice of bread... addicting...

  6. Always make mine chocolate, the darker the better. I'm not tempted by any other kind.

  7. reese pb cups - trees, pumpkins and other shapes welcome!

    also licorice. and nutella. can't forget the nutella.
