A match made in heaven!

I love treats.

OF any kind.

AT any time.

And Surprises... I loooooove surprises.

Lately, I've developed a hankerin' for Chocolate and ... wait for it.. BACON!! OMG!!! It goes together like Chocolate and Peanut Butter, Mac and Cheese, Salt and Pepper, Apple Pie and Ice Cream... you get the picture...

I make my bacon on the weekend all in one batch... throw the bacon (I use uncured, nitrate free bacon) in the cold oven, turn the oven on to 450 and walk away for 20 minutes.. ahhhh perfect bacon! But I digress....

So, when I'm winding down for the day... I have started to have this treat... 15grams of Chocolate 73% Dark Chocolate XOXOXO and 1 slice of Bacon.... mmmmm... heaven! I confess I might be making some little pleasure noises when I eat this treat... hehe

What are some of your favorite treats?? And do you love surprises as much as I do??

I took today off and cleaned out my closet.. got rid of every piece of clothing that wasn't pristine... and every piece that I didn't LOVE... and every piece that was too big!

Here's the pile of hangers from the clothes I gave away... ahhhhhh decluttering feels so good...

My Coach had shoulder surgery yesterday... so no training tonight... he gave me some homework.. row 2000k (which is a mile)... which I did... I rowed 1000k rested for 3 minuted and rowed the other 1000k... I rowed the back half bout 10 seconds faster than the front half.. I could have done better.. I could have pushed myself harder... Interestingly, I have not learned how to push myself as hard as my coach can... I'm sure it's a skill I can learn... and I intend to learn it.

    I know someone who makes chocolate covered bacon; I have not tried it but it's a big hit at parties. You are doing awesome, you will love zip lining - it was one of my favorite adventures.

    emoticon Seems to me, Annie, that I remember not so long ago a blog you wrote about the whose of trying on clothing emoticon Look at all of those hangers laying on your floor ! I hope you left some clothes in your closet to wear - LOL.

    I've had that Chocolate & Bacon combo before and it is yummy! Although I don't think I have ever seen uncured bacon?

    You should try a Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt bar - extra yummy ! !
