ice cream run, etc.

Forget the burger. I went straight for the ice cream last night. I chose strawberry (very uncharacteristic of me), because it FELT healthier. I mean, there were REAL strawberries in there. How can that not be healthier?

After ice cream, I ran errands with bedroommate EB. I went to pick up a gift at the mall that was supposed to be ready a WEEK ago and was still not done - grr. We wandered into Lindt Chocolates and bought some mint truffles for my chocolate fix (only to find out later that they were a bit cheaper at Target). As it always goes at Target, I went there for napkins and found myself dropping a huge armload of stuff onto the belt at the register. But it was an armload of many things I forgot I needed, all for the wedding weekend. I always, always play this game at the checkout where I try to guess what the total will be before they ring me up. You know, to soften the blow. Maybe if I guess a little higher, it won't be as painful when they tell me how much I owe. It works . . sort of.

What I'd love to be doing in these posts is getting into the specifics of what I am buying and how shower planning stuff is going, but "Hi BFF, I'm trying to keep this stuff a surprise for you". My biggest worry is that it won't turn out as great as I hope it will or that I'm forgetting something BIG and won't realize it until it's too late.

I did figure out what I want to say to BFF when I stand up in front of EVERYONE. Hope it comes out ok.

It will be beautiful!

By the way my destressor of choice last night and tonight is wine and chocolate. I eat "healthy" chocolate - i.e. Lindt. Because Reese's is just bad for you. hehe

I cannot leave target without spending $200. Can't be done. I won't even let myself go in there anymore.
I'm better off paying MORE for something elsewhere just to keep the temptation away.

Dude, I totally justify stuff with fruit in it the same way! I mean, strawberries are totally fruit, and that's healthy.

I'm sure the shower will be awesome. Can't wait to read about it!
