Hello to you! I have been posting so much this last month, I kind of think I like it. I can pay attention to my blog because I have had some downtime, it feels so nice to exhale and breathe. Sleep in and spend lots of time in my kitchen. Oh how I LOVE when summer comes. It usually means Vegas for the hubby and I. Check out this picture I took in Vegas last week. Keep in mind this “chocolate” woman was life size.
Anyone who knows me personally, knows this girl loves chocolate. Umm I have been spoiled with the best too. I was introduced to the really good stuff when a friend in high dated a foreign exchange student from Germany named Mandy. She and I became friends, and when she’d come back to school from vacation, she’d bring me a brick of chocolate. This was seriously a 5Lb. brick she’d bring me, and I could count on getting one at least twice a year! And till this day I have tasted nothing that comes close to those bricks of buttery, smooth goodness.
My chocolate affair has only grown since then, on the hunt for the best chocolates I can find. It is my one affordable pleasure, where I really indulge myself with the best. The word “chocolate” comes from the Aztec language, and it means bitter water. Something I learned along the way is you should never refrigerate or freeze chocolate, (although you can keep it for an eternity that way) it takes away the distinct qualities of taste. Back in the day, they used chocolate for perfume. Can you imagine that? I’d be licking everyone that passed me by! hee hee. Another interesting tid-bit is that chocolate can help you loose weight! it’s true if you eat a little bit of chocolate before a meal it will suppress your appetite. That came straight from the mouths of research peps at San Diego State University. Don’t eat too much though, besides it counter-acting your master plan, It is known to be lethal in large amounts. I think you’d have to eat like 30lbs. If I had to pick my own death, that would probably be the best way to go. Ok so now that I’ve convinced you that I am a chocolate nerd, take a look at the cute card I made. It has Chocolate and Tilda, the best of both worlds.
A closer look, there’s glitter on the hearts, the jar is covered with liquid glass
I would like to enter my card in these challenges:
Bearly Mine – #90 Anything Goes
Shabby Tea Room – Blue, Pink, White & Flowers
Magnolia-licious – Lace (it looks like crochet style and it is my favorite)
Bunny Zoe – Wings (on the butterfly on the fence)
Inky Chicks – Love ( my love for chocolate)
Southern Girls – Gems, distress ink (in Moss), Spots (pink and blue ones all over)
Well, that’s all for today but I’m looking forward to creating some more, and sharing it with you in the very near future. Take care, Angela
