holiday goodness

how come no one ever told me how fucking delish dark chocolate covered pretzels were??? i realize this is something i should probably already know, so the only thing i can think of is that maybe i've always been told to try milk chocolate covered pretzels. and i'm not a big fan of milk chocolate at all. even less so as i get older. milk chocolate drools... dark chocolate rules. another thought about this whole travesty? maybe i always tried those tiny little ass knot pretzels... so you probably can't even taste the salt on those... which i think is part of the whole point of these treats. salt + sweet = heaven (right now somewhere boyfriend is saying "i've got something sweet and salty for you.").

my point?

are these.
dark choco pretzies

and these
white pretzels

and hello, do you realize how freaking good they are?!?!! well someone's wife from work makes them every year and i about died and couldn't stop eating them. so i decided to try to make them to bring to christmas dinner tomorrow. and i modified with the white chocolate cause i had some white chocolate chips hanging around.

and i think i just found my new favorite thing to make over the holidays. good lord.

speaking of crap and eating it. i feel like i'm about to bust out of my jeans. it's a little frustrating because while i have been eating more crappy than usual, i've also been conscientious about eating well during the other times and i am continuing to work out. but um... i've gained 3 pounds. i know that doesn't sound like a lot, but i just freaking lost 7 or whatever. so i'm not all excited to gain half of it back.

stupid pretzels.

did you see my twitter about the aisles and aisles of VALENTINE candy out already? of course you didn't cause it didn't twat. stupid twitter (except for @babitosdad and @TheCaffeinatrix cause they said i'm their sexiest twitter follower. damn straight fuckers).

have a great christmas tomorrow if you celebrate! have a super merry everything.. i hope you get everything you want, and things you didn't even realize you wanted.. like PUPPIES! and unicorns! hahaha
