Justify Baby….Reason’s I’m Eating Chocolate

House to myself for the first time in 3 weeks. Celebrate. Eat some chocolate.

Baby girl has a tummy ache AGAIN. Worried.  Eat some chocolate, cause clearly that is gonna help.

Run some errands and found giant Reese Chocolate Bars at the dollar store?  Must eat this chocolate. Dumb girl, should have stocked up!  These monsters are huge and delish!reeseIt’s cold out…drink some hot chocolate.

Put an offer on a fab house in Florida.  A home we could vacation in and rent out too!  Isn’t she sweet? Florida

Excited. Eat Chocolate.

Doc has decided baby girl needs to have blood work done….some other stuff too.  Feel almost sick with worry, still room for chocolate.  It is hard being a Mama.

Owners of house in Florida accepted!  Now just waiting to see if bank approves the short sale. Yes, more chocolate.

So tired.  Long day.  Does Bailey’s count as chocolate?

I have a problem.

How much chocolate will I consume before today is over? 

Feel free to send chocolate.


  1. Very cute house! Hope your girl is okay, thinking good thoughts for her.

    If I lived in Canada, I would never stop putting Coffee Crisp bars in my mouth.

    /no need to justify

  2. Hilarious! Glad I found your blog. Im a follower now and will be back for more. I had no idea Reeses made candy bars! Im a US expat in the UK, going back to the US for a visit in April and will be looking for these babies!

  3. PS Sorry, (see I was thinking about the chocolate too much too) I meant to also say I really hope your baby girl is fine. Kids usually are, but I know its a worry anyway.

  4. Clearly you needed it – what a day!!

  5. Forget the Reeses peanut buttercups…..the best….Trader Joe’s peanutbutter cups, rich, smooth, creamy. Darn it, now I have to drive to Trader Joe’s.

  6. Mmm…chocolate. Loving the vacation home/rental!

  7. who doesn’t love chocolates?
    I love chocolates, too, but if I eat too much my throat can’t stand it. I tried to switch to dark chocolate but nothing beats milk chocolate.

    take it easy, girl…

  8. all definitely acceptable reasons for chocolate. 🙂

  9. Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cups were a recent “problem” for me while I was in FL (what is it with this candy bar and Florida?)…

    Put. The. Chocolate. Down. Now.

    And short sales in FL do go through, contrary to what some people would have you believe!

    PS Did you put the chocolate down yet? 🙂

  10. Those are all very valid reasons to eat chocolate!
    Congrats on the house, where is it located? We are getting ready to do the same thing!

  11. Adorable house…so lucky.

    And I’ll have chocolate to celebrate for you

  12. So I am guessing that Baby Girl will be born with a killer tan, thanks to all that milky brown chocolate coursing through her little in-utero veins. She will LOVE you for it. Wish my mom had done that for me. *sniff*

  13. How have I not seen those?!? I love PB cups.

  14. reeses are actually healthy for you…at least that is what i tell myself…

  15. I hope your girl would have normal blood test results. Perhaps it’s just growing pains.
    If we’re neighbors, i’ll give you chocolate macadamias (my bff in hawaii sent me some, yum!).

  16. Try chocolate chip ice cream with Bailey’s on top. Oh yum.

  17. Chocolate is like my drug.

    Until it’s late enough in the day to dink wine!

    Hope the house works out for you- that would be awesome!

  18. I hope your girl is ok. Love the house!

  19. Mmm chocolate.
    My boyfriend is obsessed with those Reeses chocolate bars. He thinks they’re so much better than the cups.

  20. The eating of chocolate NEVER needs to be justified.

  21. A place just waiting for you in Florida? Gotta love that and I hope the bank says yeah!

  22. I hope all is well with your girl!

    As for the chocolate, I do the same thing. I like to add insult to injury and wash it down with a Pepsi or Dr. Pepper.

  23. chocolate has its own food group, you know. as essential to life as dairy, grains and proteins and all that other good stuff. eat up! 😀

  24. Nice house! Congrats!! Hope your little lady is a-ok 🙂

  25. MMMM Love chocolate!… throw some white chocolate in next time! yum!

  26. Baileys is TOTALLY a chocolate substitutes (((((HUGS))))) Mama!!!

    PS If the florida thing is a go……I’m coming to visit 😉

  27. 1. Reeses are my absolute favourite, hard to get here though. And my husband and I are on a health kick, so seeing that pic is killiiinnnggg me.

    2. I hope your little girl is ok

    3. Wow, love that house, fingers crossed for you.

  28. I haven’t had chocolate since Monday when I decided it had to be my cheat day this week and I had peanut butter silk pie.

    I have a king size milkyway and a king size reese’s cups a few feet from me and I am staying strong.

    That house looks amazing!

    I hope that everything is okay with your daughter.

  29. Stop with the chocolate! You may be vacationing in Florida in your new house! You’re going to want to wear a bathing suit!
    Only eat chocolate when the house is empty…and if your house is anything like mine, that probably doesn’t happen much.

  30. and my favorite is reeses too.

    hope your dd is ok

  31. Clearly…all very good reasons for chocolate!

    And, Reese’s definitely makes the best peanut butter, ever.

  32. Hope the little one is ok!
    That house in FL is adorable!
    I eat chocolate for no reason at all so you are doing better than me!

  33. I’m sorry but chocolate is good for you. That is my theory and I’m sticking to it! Lovely house – congrats!

  34. Too true. I actually keep a secret stash of really great chocolate…and I DON’T share w/my family. What? They will never appreciate it live I do!! I’m here via Shell…congrats on your BFF day!! Woop woop!! I’m new to your blog and get wait to read more!!

  35. Reese Peanut Butter bars! How did I not know these existed?? oh boy I am in trouble.

    Congrats on the house!!

  36. In light of the facts I think you showed great restraint. In honor of your day i am also going to each chocolate today!!

    (It is nice to meet you. I look forward to reading your blog.)

  37. I so live this life….without the house, and make baby girl little man 🙂 So possibly just the chocolate addiction LOL

    Hope baby girl is feeling better!!! GL on the house thing.

  38. Bailey’s is my chocolate of choice 🙂
