not me! monday ...and a contest


it's monday again! here is what we (yes, i'm being brutally honest for ben too) did NOT do this week!

a couple days after halloween we did not go to target and ben did not buy a mound of candy that was on sale.

after target we did not go to walmart and he did not beg me let him get another bag of candy because "please???? it's my favorite..."

then last wednesday we did not go to target again and notice that the remaning candy was on sale even more and once again ben could not pass up such a deal. (no, really, he couldn't pass it up!)

then friday night we definately didn't go to target AGAIN (yeah, we love target. and these were all different targets by the way) and we he certainly didn't buy even more candy.

tonight i did not look at the mound of target bags filled with candy wondering how many pounds of candy we had and i did not add it all up. i definately was not shocked at the amount i had calculated and then i did not find another target bag full of candy. ahhhh!

after telling ben how many pounds of candy we have he did not say "cool! lets eat it all tonight!"


so can you guess how many pounds of candy we have? click on comments to leave your guess. whoever is closest gets a bag of candy! hey---i have to get rid of it somehow! (and no, ben my love, you cannot guess the correct answer to get another bag of candy!)

play along! what did you not do?

I can't even tell you how much I miss Target, now that we moved to the "country," but I was not there last week, did not buy a pair of shoes, decided they hurt too much and now somehow have to get back to the city to return them! Happy Monday!
