Blinking Cursor

No really.

That’s all I’ve got. Blinking cursor.

(47 minutes later)

Oh – Wait! An update on what I made for the bbq on the 4th.

Turns out the grocery store was open – thank GOD. So I’m walking through the aisles and pondering my possibilities and just magically ended up in the candy aisle.

The brilliant solution: White Pretzel Flipz and Red, White & Blue m&ms. In a clear container. Supah easy, right? Layer them to look all cute and festive?

But wait.

No ‘festive’ bags of m&ms. What the fuck, makers of m&ms – no bags of red, white & blue candy coated goodness this year? Or are you just sending them to big stores like wally world and targhay?

Whatever, I say to myself. I can fix this. I just bought extra bags of REGULAR color m&ms and then separated the colors. No white in there, but the Flipz fixed that. So yes, I sat at my dining room table, after forbidding my children to come into the kitchen, and spilled out 6 bags of m&ms and slid the reds and blues to the left, the other colors to the right.

I got this plastic see through canister and tossed in one layer of color, a bag of Flipz, another layer of color, another bag of Flipz and then filled in the holes w/ more reds & blues.

Huge hit at the party, I must say. Of course I have no pictures. Just imagine it, mmkay?

And now – if I want to do, say, a Halloween one? Or St. Patty’s Day? Or Thanksgiving? I have those other colors hidden in a canister, far far away from my husband’s snacking self.

Oh, p.s. – 2 of the 6 bags were those Pretzel m&ms – it mixed up the sizes, tied the m&ms to the pretzel flipz and overall genius, if I say so myself.

Not bad, eh? Hope all y’all had a fabulous weekend.

Brilliant. Except I'm cracking up at you sorting through the m&ms colors.

I don't know if I believe you. I demand proof!
Since there are no pictures- I will settle for you making a whole new batch and sending them to me in the mail.

HEE! I'm scraping the bottom of the writer's barrel too.

Hm, don't know if I should wish for events to express such creativity (b/c girl, you got it!) or be grateful for not having to come up with this stuff.

And HEE HEE you got tagged AGAIN! Looking forward to seeing your answers.

You are a genius! I would have slid the red and blue to the right and the others to my mouth! Good thinking saving them for something else!

Perfect solution. Except you missed a prime opportunity to gorge guilt-free on all of the non-red/blue m&m's, all in the name of our country's independence. For shame. ;-)
