Easter feels like forever ago, doesn’t it?  Or is that just me?  Princess Nagger cracks me up – I think she’s on to me in regards to ‘who’ the Easter Bunny is (and quite possibly who Santa is) but she plays along to keep the magic alive.

Since there is no set bedtime for her on the weekends (she’s a good sleeper and has no trouble sleeping in on the weekends) there’s usually a worry that I’ll have to try to wake up in the middle of the night to leave out the Easter Baskets and hide the eggs.  This year, she made it easy for me by actually going to bed early, leaving this note on her easel:


I sure love that kid.

This cartoon picture was floating around on Facebook on Easter and totally cracked me up:



I’m assuming many of you (myself included) still have an overabundance of chocolate left over from Easter, and even though this has been around for a number of years (I even shared it a few years ago) I thought a little reminder of the benefits of chocolate would be in order. Enjoy!


If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you’re eating it too slowly.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.

The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal.

It’ll take the edge off your appetite and you’ll eat less.

A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn’t that handy?

If you can’t eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can’t eat all your chocolate, what’s wrong with you?

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge.

Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.

Q: Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?

A: Because no one wants to quit.

Put “eat chocolate” at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you’ll get one thing done.

Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy. So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable and dairy intake.


There, don’t you feel better about your chocolate consumption?

That’s a wrap for this week – if you have fragmented or random thoughts more than once a week, you’re always welcome to join me for Random Tuesday Thoughts each week as well. Have a great weekend!

  1. Love the note PN left for you. Too funny! Great comic….. Not having any little ones we only had some PB M&M’s and I’ve been very good about not eating chocolate with my low carb diet. I eat 86% Cocao which is not the same at all!

  2. Once upon a time, I worked at a movie theater and some lady was looking for ‘healthy’ stuff in our candy box and I said to her, “Everything that is chocolate is made from milk so you’ll get in your dairy”. Apparently that was the wrong thing to say to a nutritionist.

    1. Thanks so much, Sylvia! I’m getting caught up, but I’ve added your Friendship Friday badge to my draft post for this Friday so I don’t forget to link up on the day. 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂

  3. Some good ones in your list of Chocolate benefits. I’m not a big chocolate lover. I don’t even like chocolate ice cream. Candy bars are good. I like the note for the bunny.

    1. You and I are a lot alike in regards to chocolate! I don’t like chocolate ice cream – or chocolate milk. Hot chocolate (with lots of marshmallows) or a candy bar (no nuts…I know, I’m nuts!) sure, but I’m not a chocolate lover. The hubby is the main chocoholic in our house – he sometimes has to make a late night run for chocolate when there’s none in the house to quench his craving! 😀

  4. I know I’m late to reading this but I have a question from the back of the class (yes that’s white chocolate on my hands) What is “leftover” chocolate? Also yes that white chocolate’s been there since last sunday the 31st.
