To all my fellow chocolaholics,
Is it just me, or is the temptation to buy boxes of chocolate seem extremely hard this time of year? When doing my grocery shopping I have found myself often circling the heart-shaped boxes display that beckons my name, "Melissa, please buy me."
The other day at Target, I had one in my hand. My plan was to buy it for Jonathan as his Valentine's present. I got almost to the check-out and had a let-me-be-honest-with-myself-moment. Jonathan doesn't even care for chocolates. The most he would probably eat would be 3 and 1/2 (the 1/2 being the chocolate covered coconut that I always end up getting. I spit one half out, and put the other back in the box). I couldn't buy it once I figured it was like me buying a present for myself. So I left with 2 boxes of double fudge brownies, both of which are gone (they were on sale--I couldn't help it!).
Last year at Valentine's Day, Elizabeth was almost 2 months old. Naturally, I was trying to loss my baby weight, so Jonathan, who knows my obsession with chocolate, bought me an extra-extra dark chocolate bar. Yep, it was disgusting.
The only present I would love more than chocolate for Valentine's Day would be a Honda Odyssey. And since that is highly unlikely, I'm hoping for a box, even a small one, though the bigger, the better. :) So here is my subtle hint to my husband, and a cry of help for my chocolate addiction.
