My name is Vickie, and I am a chocoholic. There, I've said it. I don't think I could get through a day without it. I don't mean cake or cookies. Chocolate candy is my addiction. My last cholesterol count tipped the scales at slightly over 200. And I know these.........
are not the culprit. No, the more likely cause are the bad eggs in my diet.
Holidays are the worst! Just check out the holiday candy aisle. Filled with all variety of pretty pastel wrapped chocolate candy that I buy because it looks so festive in my candy dishes. For a day or two. Until somebody eats it all.
I've decided not to buy any more chocolate Easter candy.
I'll bring that pastel color into the house with artificial eggs, like these wood eggs I painted years ago.
I usually line them up like soldiers on this shelf, but I found this crate for a few dollars and the eggs almost fit in the cubbies. I had to tip a few sideways and prop the shelf up with felt furniture pads so the eggs wouldn't keep rolling out.
I added some fuzzy chicks in the empty spots.
I found them at our hospital gift nook. Aren't they cute?!
I even found a spot for one of the pink flowered plates I removed from the "Sweet Sixteen" bedroom.
Our daughters are trying very hard to be healthy eaters and I've dicided to join them.
Right after breakfast.
Have a great day!
