chocolate diet

Hi everyone,

………finally all the Easter eggs are finished LOL!! Been eating nothing but chocolate for the whole week now and my tummy’s proof of that too hahaha. For me my tummy rolls are starting to show and hubby’s at least got something to hang on to!! Caden had a wonderful time hunting for her eggs with daddy leading the way but she still prefers her “marie biscuits” to the delicious choc marshmallows – uhuh that’s why mommy had to finish them!!! Not sure if i’m supposed to be lucky or if her choc binge is going to follow later on LOL!

Its been so hectic for us here – easter is one of our busiest seasons. Our cottages were full this week and we only had one cottage complain after being woken up at 2am in the morning by some other cottage guests coming in late from our local pub’s party – in their happy drunken state they couldn’t find the gate remote so they had to hoot for someone to open up hahahha!!(Kim – you never told me Wayne and Deon were visiting LOL!!!)

While apologizing on behalf of guests and running around with extra toilet paper and soaps LOL we managed to go to the Tonteldoos Country Festival – little farming community just outside Dullstroom. Here’s me and lil one on the “Donkey Taxi” – hahahah, Yikes (here’s me thinking okay I can do this little stroll around the field!!!) I had to hang on for dear life as the driver thought he was on a race track…………..poor donkey’s and my bhind……….! All Caden wanted was the drivers whip………she thinks she can chase mommy around!!

Donkey Taxi

I’v also managed to finish KimB’s April Colour Challenge – oooh very late……………..

Thanks so much for this gorgeous kit!
BTW...I try and eat as much of the chocolate on Easter Sunday as I can, it has no calories then! (At least that's what I tell myself!)

Oh, I love that freebie! The window with the vines makes me think country cottage and makes me wish you'd do an "enchanted forest" type of kit sometime soon. (Big hint there! LOL!)These birds and the color challenge freebie would both go great with that. (hint. hint.) Get the hint? LOL!

I miss all the chocolate bunnys and such since my children have grown and the bunny now visits there homes leaving all these goodies for my grandchildren. But DH did bring me home a solid chocolate bunny the other day. :) Said he knew that I loved them, so he picked one up for me. Love your addition for Kimb's cc , it is gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing it.

LOL - how DO you handle the late-nighters? Have you ever had to diffuse a situation?

How wonderful to hunt eggies with your little one - we get to indulge along with them and not look silly.

The festival looks like a lot of fun, very interesting. I'd feel just horrible for the donkey too - but I'd not be able to resist a ride. My Mr. would probably sigh in exasperation for I'd bring a carrot for the donkey and would be 'talking' to it too haha!

Thanks for the pretty giveaways - and WOWZERS, another knock out kit you've created. What talent, my friend! I'm sure it will sell itself.

Thank you, I loved this QP. Based in this quickpage I made thefollowing (I hope that you understand, English ins't my native language):
"There are moments that gives a desire to be a free little bird singing close to the flowers, in the window of who we loved and to have right of undertaking our flights under the celestial immensity. No the bird inside of a cage, whose food and water are guaranteed, but in exchange of a prison, and your song is more for sadness... you love song is never complete... the music beguins... the heart faints..."
