Over a week ago for Memorial Day, I showed you all the wonderful thrifted stuff I found. What I didn’t show you was the rest of my thrift trip, my unexpected lunch with my home-girl Hakimah (aka best friend), and the quest for pretty knobs at Hobby Lobby after lunch. It was such a fun day, but long! When you have a long day of shopping and treasure hunting, you need snacks like TWIX® Bites on the go to keep your energy up.
I was recently invited by #CollectiveBias to try TWIX® Bites on a recent trip to Walmart, so of course, I jumped at the opportunity, because who doesn’t like TWIX®?? Plus, knowing the day would be long, I was thankful to have a yummy stash of goodies to keep me fueled while I was out.
(You know you like to lick the chocolate off first, then eat the caramel, and save the cookie part for last–come on, ‘fess up! I know I can’t be the only one!)
I bought–gasp!–3 bags! I couldn’t beat that price! I couldn’t wait to #EatMoreBites. TWIX® is actually one of my favorite candies! (Here’s a money-saving coupon for ya):
While at Walmart, I discovered that my BFF was right across the street at Panera Bread. She was feeling really depressed about some personal matters, so I offered to come have lunch with her. It was just the girl time she needed, to talk things over, and see the bright side. Soon, we were hugging each other, telling each other we loved each other, and professing our undying friendship (yeah, it was pretty sappy, and I’m NOT a sappy person). 🙂
Feeling better, she zoomed in on my bags of TWIX® Bites (I didn’t want to leave them in the car for fear they would melt). Of course she wanted some.
Then get this–Hakimah she said she likes to eat TWIX® the same way I do! (lick, chew, crunch). See! I’m not the only one! LOL
We’re so silly…..
After we left lunch, we hopped over to Hobby Lobby to look for some knobs. I’m working on this custom dresser for a client (stay tuned, I’ll be posting that next week), but finding knobs to meet the clients tastes and requests was hard.
So I stood there in the aisle, popping TWIX® Bites and mulling over which knobs could work.
Because I am still working out and counting calories (NOT dieting–I don’t believe in diets or restricting ANY foods–just moderation), I made sure I didn’t murder the whole bag. 🙂
The awesome part is that they’re about the same amount of calories as a small chocolate kiss, so there’s no guilt in poppin’ a few while on the go!
Anyhow, we found some awesome knobs, but sadly, my client didn’t care for any of these. I thought they were pretty cute!
After Hobby Lobby, we drove over to a nearby thrift store I don’t usually frequent, but I have been known to find some awesome stuff there (like my vintage drafting table!!)
They had this amazing bench for just $35! I would have gotten it, but you know what I said before–if there is no place for it in my garage, it ain’t coming home!
(Notice the weird smile? I’ve got a TWIX® Bite jammed in there). LOL
So, it was a fun day! I enjoyed my day of thrift diving and girl time and knob shopping. And going forward, I’m always going to have something quick and easy to pop in my mouth to keep me going, like TWIX® Bites.
The kids loved them, too! Because I bought 3 bags, everyone in the house wanted dibs, especially my middle and youngest sons! Check out the baby fighting for some TWIX® Bites. LOL. These would be awesome to have on hand especially when we’re out on the weekends and I need little bribes to keep my kids in check…….OOOooohhhoOooo, the things I could get my kids to do with candy bribes…. [insert sinister laugh here].
And last but not least, I had some TWIX® Bites left over last weekend for my painting class. Because I’m always running from project to project to help students and need my hands free, the TWIX® Bites were easy to pop in while helping them.
Here’s a look at the chair I brought to my class. Just $5.00 at a yard sale!
Pretty blue now! Don’t worry, I’ll show you the painting class pics in another post!
Gotta have the snacks and wine during furniture painting classes!
