What I Bought

When I did my post on the new Gordman's, several of you asked what I bought. So here it is. I bought two things. This little dish was under $5.00.
And these strawberry merangues, which are only about 12 calories each.


Good purchases, I think. But the same cannot be said for my shopping trip in Home Goods yesterday. I was so tempted by these pretzels that I bought a bag. They are cotton candy pretzels rolled in flavored sugar. I eat pretzels as a low calorie snack. But in the car when I read the bag, I could hardly believe my eyes. ONE pretzel is about 250 calories!! I don't know if I will be eating them.



I haven't reported my missing credit card to the police because whoever stole it is spending less than my wife.

What a cute little dish that is. The strawberry merangues look good too.
Holy smokes on the number of calories in one of those pretzels.

I have trained myself to read the label when I pick up anything I don't already know. the bagels I love, are 270 calories per bagel with nothing on them. once in a while I buy them and tell myself I will eat a half with peanut butter on it. so far I have never eaten a half. I buy a bag about once every 3 months. I used to buy a bag a week. hidden caloreis are very where. don't eat those pretzels, gift the bag to someone else.

Wow- That is a HEFTY caloried pretzel. And, hard to eat just one if you start. Every once in a while I get hooked on something that is not good for me---like Hostess Chocolate cupcakes. lol
Love your Gordman's little bowl. So cute-
Have a great weekend- xo Diana

great finds great bargains. as for the cotton candy pretzel, it is almost to cute to eat, I guess it must be all that sugar coating.
Love the quote!
Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comment, have a great weekend.

Pretzels are not one of my favorite things.

Lol on the joke. I like the little dish with the bird - but those sugar pretzels - bring them to a church function or something!

I think those pretzels would be my downfall...I couldn't stop at one!!
Not suppose to eat them anyway.
The merangues look delicious and better for me too.
Sweet little dish with the blue bird perching on the edge.

Well, it looks good but goodness, so many calories. I love that pretty dish with the little bird. The meringues look delicious.

I am such a fan of both meringues and coated pretzels. I don't dare let either in my house because they call to me, even from a high shelf.

So now I have to google Gordman's. Off I go.
