Downfall de Senorita


Hello There My Little Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs,

Lemme just say that I LOVE Easter candy. Halloween candy sucks compared to Easter candy. Easter is where I think about Jesus and grow another ass. My weakness is the chocolate covered marshmallow eggs that come in the styrofoam carton in pastel colors. I found mine at Walmart for a buck. I was tempted to drop ten bucks, but I restrained myself. My other downfalls include, but are not limited to Peeps, malt chocolate balls in the milk carton, and marshmallows. Did I also mention that I LOVE the little Easter stuffed animals ?

You can blame my mother for that. While you're at it blame her mother too. We're Austrians and Austrians can't say no to sweets.

I thought that I was doing well yesterday. I ran four miles. My waist has been getting smaller, and I am slowly trying to get that hourglass figure back.

 But no, I had to undo all the good I did by eating all those chocolate covered eggs. Ah well, you live and you learn. The sugar high was good though, for about 20 minutes. Those eggs were good. Such soft marshmallow middle with a chocolate covering that just melted in my mouth.

You know what I am thankful for ? The high metabolism I used to have before I turned 26. I am thankful that I took advantage of it and ate tons of cake, frosting and ice cream while I could. Because I had a window of opportunity and I took it. And I didn't take it for granted.

Of course I have to be way more careful now, but that is okay. We all have to slow down sometime and I've had to learn. But I am getting better.

Okay, better get some sleep now.

Besos !

I could eat anything I liked and never gain an ounce, until I turned thirty. Then the fat cells in my body exploded, and I became an enormous, weather-balloon-like creature, rolling down the street and frightening children.

Oh all right, I made that last part up. I'm not that big. But bigger than i was in my 20s.

That's one of the reasons I run, to counteract the foods I eat.
Soft marshmallowy middle-me and the candy both!

At least your weakness is only one time a year. I love skittles. They stare at me 365 days a year!

Bev said...

I totally agree - Easter candy kicks Halloween candy's ass! I'm not a marshmallow fan but I do love Cadbury Creme Eggs & Mini Eggs. YUM!

You made me LOL with "think about Jesus and grow another ass." Hilar!!

My kids like the chocolate bunnies. ANd I like jelly beans!

Danielle,

True, Easter candy is a weakness, but cake and cupcake stare me down 365 a year, too.

Dadshouse,

So you're gonna have Halloween and Easter candy at your house ? Can I come over ? Pretty Please ???

I left a little something for you on my blog today. No marshmallows or malted milk balls. But I hope you enjoy it.

Peeps make me want to gag. Actually, anything with Marshmellows, outside of homemade smores do.

But I agree, Easter Candy outshines Halloween.. because there is tastier gourmet stuff!

Heff said...

Careful - those Peeps'll kill you.

Ach ja, danke schoen fuer diesen Blog. Natuerlich schmecken uns Suessigkeiten, liegt uns im Blut!
As Austrians, there is no denying it, what with all the strudels and cakes and candies at every corner, and they don't just stare at you, they chase you down!!!
Whenever I was a good girl, I got chocolate! Whenever I got good grades, I got candy! Whenever....you get the idea....plus your Oma was a first rate pastry baker.....
ah, the memories, I just now gained 5 lbs, just thinking about all those goods....

~shoes~

Sweet-Britches said...

OMG. I *heart* Peeps soooo much!

Ily said...

Easter...where you think about Jesus and grow another ass. Chica, you crack me up...like an Easter Egg!

I don't like all that candy but give me chocolate bunny ears and I'm happy.

Hope your Good Friday is GREAT!!

Cadbury Mini-Eggs are my weakness! The regular ones are better than the Dark Chocolate ones they have available as well.

You didn't undo all your work with having some candy. If you eat it for three days straight, that would be different but you probably won't so no worries!

What a great new picture! You photograph so well.

All I have to say about Easter candy is - Jelly Beans! There are a few green ones rolling around in my car that only come out when I stop. Then they disappear only to reappear when I have someone else in the car! They totally give me away.
