Thank Goodness It’s Friday! Did this week seem to drag by for anyone else? I honestly didn’t think today would ever come. Since the hubs works 6 days a week, our weekend technically doesn’t start until tomorrow @ 5 pm :-X Bummer right?!!
Today’s post is gonna be short & sweet. I just got home from the grocery store, and really need to take Roxy for a walk & get some cleaning done.
I was recently nominated by the wonderful Giselle over at AHealthyHappyHome for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. I’ve been following Giselle’s blog for quite sometime now and can’t get enough of it. Between the love for her adorable munchkin and her fun family stories, it’s become one of my favorite blogs to read.
Here’s how it works: Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you. Answer 5 questions, and nominate a dozen of bloggers. Simple enough right?
- Cookie or Cake? Most definitely cookies
- Chocolate or Vanilla? I have a love relationship with both of them
- What is your favorite sweet treat? This one is always changing. Lately it’s a cross between apples with peanut butter protein goo, and pumpkin spice english muffins topped with peanut butter & banana
- When do you crave sweet things the most? Always after dinner
- If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? My husband only calls me babe, and I love that <3.
Before I end this post, I thought it’d be fun to share some fun facts about certain Halloween Candy 🙂
Babe Ruth: Many people associate this candy bar with legendary baseball player Babe Ruth (the candy’s web site does feature a baseball stadium), but it was actually named after President Grover Cleveland’s daughter, who was often called “Baby Ruth.”
Peeps: The technological wizards at Peeps have cut the manufacturing time down to six minutes to make one marshmallow chick, down from 27 hours in 1953. Their wings were “clipped” in the 1950s to give them a “sleek, modern look.”
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: Hershey’s makes enough of this favorite in one year to give one cup to every single person in the USA, Japan, Europe, China, Africa, and India.
Butterfinger: The term “butterfinger” dates from the 1920s and ’30s when sportscasters used it to describe athletes who couldn’t hold on to a baseball or football.
Candy Corn: According to the National Confections Association, more than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That’s 9 billion pieces (63 billion calories), enough to circle the moon almost 21 times
KitKat: Although a Nestle product in most of the world, Kit Kat is licensed under Hershey in the U.S. The name is believed to come from the 18th century “Kit Kat” literary club in London.
- Are you dressing up for Halloween this year?
- Do you hand out candy to all the little ones?
