Take Two Chocolates and Call Me in the Morning

Because chocolate is healthy, you know. It says so here.

And according to my most recent poll, you'd rather do that than have an apple a day. Chocolatey desserts won HANDS DOWN over fruity desserts. I personally think you have to be a little "fruity" (no offense) to choose anything over chocolate (No, I'm not contradicting my last post...we're purely talking desserts here). Don't get me wrong, I would never TURN DOWN a fruity dessert, but it would definitely be second place in my book. And while I am on the subject, I am troubled by one thing with the polls. I don't know if anyone has noticed, but the percentages aren't adding up to 100%. This week the votes were 73% chocolate and 26% fruity. I'm not genius at math, but that only adds up to 99%. The same thing happened with my last poll. Am I missing something? Why yes, I am...1%!

I owe a big thank you to Tara for being kind enough to award me this...



Tara is a new blogging friend, but she is definitely a keeper! Click on over and say "hello", you'll be glad you did. She is a sweet, encouraging, Mommy that loves the Lord. Thanks Tara!! So everyone says the best part about getting a blog award is that you get to pass it on! I don't know what is wrong with me, but passing the award along only brings me stress. Remember my personality description is peacemaker? I can't stand the thought of leaving anyone out, hurting anyone's feelings, or spending any more time deliberating over it so I elect you all! Is that legal? Because I'm also a rule follower and the thought of breaking a blog award rule causes me even more stress! You think I'm kidding. I'm dead serious. So, in the spirit of equality and peace, I bestow the You Make Me Smile Award to anyone who is reading this! I know...I'm hopeless.

Okay, so that's all for tonight, I'm off to have a bit of chocolate...I hear it is good for stress reduction, too.

Still cannot get the polls to work for me. So sorry, but fruit takes a backseat everyday of the week when compared to chocolate.

Especially if it comes in the form of a two-bite brownie smothered with cream cheese frosting. ADDICTED!

I can never vote on your thing either, it always says it is not working.

Oh well...CHOCOLATE. My latest fav is the tiny twix bars.

Take it like a vitamin, 1 a day.

I recently found out about a study that shows that dark chocolate lowers your blood pressure. Since I'm on meds for that, I've decided I should be entitled to a smidge of dark chocolate every day!

Renee said...

MMMmmmmmmmmm...chocolate. I actually wasn't a big chocolate gal before I had kids. Now you can't tear me away from chocolate. Any chocolate. Just give me chocolate!

Your words about Tara are sweet...I'm so happy that she's blessing your life!! As you are blessing many others....

I've never been a huge chocolate fan, although Reeses peanut butter cups are a passion. Mmmmm.

So, my latest poll is about fave snacks -- I picked salty. If I'm a snackin', I'm a crunchin'. Dessert though -- yeah, it's all about the chocolate!

You are SO funny, Alana!! Do you know that I *almost* did the exact same thing with the smiley award? *cheers the starbucks on that one* You are such a sweetheart, thanks for your kind words. You give the encouragement and Light of the Lord as good as you get it, sister!! *hugs*

You make me smile in blog life and real life! I forgot to vote this week, but YOU KNOW what my answer is...CHOCOLATE! When I was pregnant with Annie, I craved it morning, noon, and night! Ever since then it has played a very important part in my life!

Darlene R. said...

Oh Alana, you are so funny. The chocolate & fruity thing was such a toss up for me. I love any sweet things. How about chocolate covered strawberries?? That covers all the bases! YUM!!
You make me smile too! I hope that you will be able to come to the Fiesta. I would love to meet you. I think we are alike in so many ways. I would be defined as a peacekeeper too.
Another bit of info, every time I watch Gilmore Girls, I think of you! I just can't help it. :)

Alana,

I'm a little behind in reading your blog, but I am have a lot of fun catching up.

Since I am a mathematician I decided to solve your poll percent problem. The fruity is actually 26 and 2/3rds percent. This would round up to 27%, but obviously the poll software is not rounding. Combine the 27% with the 73% for chocolate and you get your 100%.

Alana said...

Rochelle, thank you! It makes me feel so much better to know that!! It's really been bugging me!!
