It's here!!!




Wahoo!! I'm writing this on my brand spankin' new computer! My brother did a pretty good job. I now have a Toshiba Satellite L505. I've never heard of it before, but so far, it seems pretty nice. It has a built in webcam, so look out! There may be some video posts a-comin'!

I'm still trying to figure out all the bells and whistles, so bear with me.

OK, I've been meaning to share this with you for a couple of weeks now. It's my newest discovery. Let me back up a second. Everytime I ate sunflower seeds (which I LOVE, by the way) I always thought to myself, "Hmmm...these would be even more awesome dipped in chocolate." Well, a couple of weeks ago, I was shopping at my new favorite store, and was perusing the snack section. This caught my eye.
At first, I thought they were mini M&M-type candies. My first instinct was to grab them because I thought they would be great in cookies. When I picked up the box, I got a closer look.
Can you tell what they are yet? Allow me to show you...

I almost did a cartwheel right there in the store! You better believe I popped these babies open right in the car. They are as awesome as they sound. They're like peanut M&Ms, but with the taste of sunflower seeds, versus peanut. I took pictures today of the container I bought the other day, since the first container barely made it through the week, especially after Stud tried them. I still think they'd be incredible in cookies. That might be on this week's to-do list.

I have had to stop buying these, except on special occasions. I LOOOOOOOVE sunflower seeds AND chocolate. They are: 1 - too addictive, and: 2 - too expensive. They are so small that I ate them by the handful...eeeek! I hope you don't get hooked! The other serious danger is the chocolate-covered raisins at Costco...Noooo more.
