Self-Control


I do not have the best self-control when it comes to candy, treats or anything I find yummy at the moment. As a little girl I remember going to a friends house who always had candy in little dishes around the house. By the time I left those candy dishes were wiped clean. I laugh now thinking about the mom noticing all of her candy is gone, and totally knowing it was me, even thought I thought I was very sly in snagging each piece.

I like to think that as I have gotten older I can now refrain from over-indulgence, but this week I have proven myself wrong. I ate a whole box of these Sweetarts (before 9 am) and now have a raw tongue, finished off this box of Goldfish in one day, and have eaten 5 blood oranges this week.

What can I say, when I like something I can't help myself! Am I the only one that does this?

You are NOT the only one who does this! I have a slight, okay major, addiction to the Target brand sour gummy worms. And goldfish as well. And cuties oranges. :)

Oh man I totally remember that! I've always loved that about you. You know, my mom probably bought that candy just for you! (It's funny how if you have candy out like that all the time your kids won't touch it, but if you hide it from them or keep it out of reach they'll want it all the time.)
