Must...Have...Antioxidants

In the chocolate form, of course. I'm not sure what has happened to me the past 2 years, because in my life up until then--I was not a chocolate addict. And I was PROUD to be a woman who didn't "NEED" chocolate to stay sane. It was actually kind of funny because my husband LOVES chocolate, but I was a take-it-or-leave-it sort of person. I'm here to say that things have changed. I have accepted chocolate. We are good friends. Today I was chatting with my SIL online and she mentioned something about having s'mores on Valentine's Day. Hmmm, chocolate + marshmallow (marshmallow IS my all-time favorite sweet treat) = yummy! My favorite candy of all time is the SCOTCHMALLOW made by Sees candy. www.sees.com

Um, yeah. It's way good. Marshmallow, caramel + dark chocolate. Sheer bliss. However, today during my antioxidant crisis I didn't have these nearby--rarely do I ever get this sweet treat--so I settled for actually making a s'more. I am steering away from sugar in all forms, however, right before "that time of the month" if I don't give in a little--I feel like I'm going to EXPLODE! Anyone have a similiar experience???

Well, I found out what I have: pneumonia. Yeah, no wonder I don't feel so good. So I'm on some pills, trying to relax and let my body heal. (I'm sure those s'mores will speed up the process)

Fertility update: no blood today. Hopefully it won't return until after I've finished taking the progesterone. :)

Do you like my new & improved blog setting? I was needing a little change. Pink is a funny color. I used to loathe it, but it's kind of growing on me...we'll try this pastel pink with brown template for a little while. It's nice to know that I can always change it up if I feel so inclined.

Tyler went grocery shopping again for me today. He said that doing things for me is a way he can show me that he loves me. Isn't he sweet? I'm so lucky to have him. :)

The color didn't look too pink to me--maybe more of a parchment color. I like!

Yeah, I thought it looked more beige (sp) or like a light tan. But I can definitely see a slight pink undertone to it, especially here on the comments page. It IS nice. Good choice.

Pneumonia stinks though. Get better soon.
