Candy Contest Update

I'm never holding a candy contest again because I have FOUND bags of Midnight Milky Way minis and decided I should try one just so I know why a couple of the winners chose this treat as their favorite candy bar.

I have now eaten six mini Midnight Milky Ways.

I have no willpower. But they are really, really good.

Winners, look for your treatsies in the mail sometime next week; that is if the PMS Monster doesn't strike and force me to eat all the chocolate! FYI, found the Midnight Milky Ways at Super Target.

And thanks to the anonymous poster who lives near me and offered to trade her Midnight Milky Ways for martinis - perhaps in the future, our paths will cross, and if they do, I have a feeling it will be at an event that serves alcohol or Doggie Diner baskets filled with fries!

Survived Day Two of school - they are still smiling.
I even got out of bed again this a.m. to walk.
Let's see what tomorrow brings.

I just linked back to your blog and love it. You are hilarious and I will definitely be back. You had me laughing. I love your "about me" description, too.

You just made my day. Super Target is carrying Milky Way Midnights again! Which one, the one on Jefferson or the one on Diehl? Now I know where to go when I run out.
Another weird coincidence, I also was a journalism major and even considered NIU.

Manic Mom said...

Anon, we have to meet! It was at the Diehl one, I've never been there!

Send me an email, do ya do coffee? Come on, out yourself! : )
