Not My Greatest Decision


I decided to eat a whole bag of chocolate covered pretzels, minus four, and I regret it. My tummy is yelling at me. If I wasn't at work, I would be yelling at me.

I would like to give the remaining four to Sean but then I would have to explain that I ate a whole bag. I was going to come up with something, like a co-worker gave the remaining four to me and I just didn't want them. But it would be pointless. He knows when I am fibbing so why even bother.

p.s. Thank you all so much for the prayers and thoughts regarding my grandmother. I read every single one and had/have the greatest feeling of gratitude for all of you. I got to see my beautiful mother this weekend and she was in high spirits so I am feeling so much better. I truly adore you all!

Carolyn said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH This post totally is something I would do. Except... I'd eat the last four. Totally get rid of the evidence, and your stomach is already hurting. ANNNNNNND I have probs. :)

Heather said...

Ugh, I have been there, since once I start eating something, I can never stop!

Oh boy! It seemed like a good idea at the time right? It tastes so good going down then that darn regret and/or tummy ache sets in. Hope your tummy settles down.

Chocolate covered pretzels are a weakness of mine, especially when I make my own! The salty sweet combo gets me every time! Hope your stomach ached doesn't last to long, and your Grandmother is in my thoughts and prayers.

Jessica Renee said...

Aww tummy aches are the worst, especially when it's over something that you couldn't stop eating! haha.. And btw, telling hubby that "someone else" shared the bag with you doesn't work. I've tried it and he saw right through me. haha!

This might be my favorite post you've ever written. Sad, shallow Mel and her obsession with sugar.

I wish I worked with ya. I'd take the last four. Then it wouldn't be enough so I'd stop on the way home and buy another bag.

Jenna said...

Ahhh Flipz are so addictive! I love that salty and sweet combination. Seriously amazing... I would just eat the last four. Tomorrow is a new day! :)

Carlie said...

I love those chocolate covered pretzels. I probably would've done the same thing! =)

Mandy Bogdan said...

Girl, chocolate covered pretzels are so dangerous. They are freakishly good. I’m with you, it doesn’t take much to “accidently” eat a whole bag! Lol

Christine said...

hahahahaha! that is something I have totally done with a bag of kit kat bites. we should be bff's and eat whole bags of choc covered pretzels together and share the last crumbs with each other. :)

Nancy said...

I've always wondered how those taste :)
Now I know to stay away from them because I would most likely do the same thing :)

Ms. Geek Goddess said...

I know this feeling all too well and you are right - it is miserable!

p.s. That is Mandisa from the American Idol. :) Love her!

Tiffany said...

Girl, we all do it. I bought a giant bag of almond Hershey Kisses and ate every single one!!! Why?????????? lol

Mrs. H said...

I say give them to Sean with no explanation! Girl, I can't say I do the same thing but I can say I can understand eating comfort food. Hugs my friend, love and hugs.

Lil' Woman said...

I will gladly take those remaining four...I freaking love chocolate covered pretzels.

Mrs. Pancakes said...

never had these before...looks tasty!

Lay said...

OOOOhhhhh I know this feeling FAR too well!! (and am guilty of doing it myself!). I am such a sucker for anything chocolate!

But you look fab girl so I'm sure you'll be fine indulging (minus the tummy ache I suppose!).

Hubby gave me a container of Godiva Chocolate Pretzels for Christmas, and they were devoured before he even had a chance to taste one. Yum. I love them.
Soooo, you're not alone, girl. ;)

p.s. I'm having a giveaway on my blog....there's a really cute Shabby Apple Dress up for grabs!

What I Did Today said...

They're chocolate covered pretzels. Of COURSE you ate the whole bag. Who wouldn't? I'd probably eat TWO bags! :)

Alida said...

salty and sweet...yep, I could have finished the whole bag!

Morgan said...

I love flips! I probably have eaten an entire bag before, haha! I'm thinking back to my college days and now I'm sure of it - I definitely ate an entire bag of flips. They sold them at "The Diner" which was across the street from my dorm so it was super easy to pop over and buy a bag with my meal plan. Too yummy to resist!

Sarah said...

At least it was pretzels and not just plain chocolate.... :)

Jamie Leigh said...

Yum! Don't feel too bad...atleast there are pretzels in there which are sort of a good snack right?! I could totally eat a whole bag too. They are so addicting!

Angela of "Grahangela" said...

Goodness those Flipz are addictive! I can't even buy them because I eat the whole bag without even thinking about it. Seriously, like when I'm done I think, "The bag's out already? There were hardly any in there!"

I have such a terribly wicked sweet tooth!

God bless you and your family as you're dealing with the passing of your grandmother! Things like that are never easy and the grieving process takes time. I'll be thinking of you!

Shalyn said...

Ahhh I've been so bad at catching up on blogs. I am so glad your grandmother is feeling better!!! And girl...FLIPS are my weak spot. That, and Sour Patch Kids. I completely see how you did this because I've done it too :) MUAH!

Monique said...

Kathy C. said...

Let's be honest... the bag is mostly filled with air. lol. See... not so bad anymore. :)

Meg {henninglove} said...

Courtney B said...

Hahaha.... I think it sounds like an AMAZING idea! LOVE those dang flipz!

Desi said...

Glad to hear you are happy and in good spirits, and that your mom is doing much better!
