Shoppers Drug Mart -1 Mouse - 0

I really only needed a new sharpener for my eyeliner. I must have knocked it into the trash a couple of weeks ago and not noticed and when I went to look for it the other day, it was gone. So after the gym last night, I popped into the one in the Eaton Centre to pick a new one up. I got me a new fangled one that even traps the shavings. Quite the upgrade from my cheapo before but you know - I'm worth it. When in shoppers, you of course have to browse the aisles for other things, so I ended up with razor blades and other assorted girly necessities. But then I got to the dreaded Christmas candy aisle... I tried to fight the war.... But the toblerone won. What can I say? I'm a sucker for anything with white chocolate. Luckily I only went 2.5 points over for the day but it totally wasn't worth it. Thankfully I think I'm stocked up on necessities until New Year's now and the candy *should* be gone by then. Oh, I don't have time to add yesterday's food pics but it was waffle and yuck for brekkie, sushi, miso soup and seaweed salad for lunch, baby carrots for a snack, ravioli, broccoli and tomatoes for dinner and the blasted toblerone. 4 APs at the gymbo.

Ahhhh the Toblerone. Who can resist? Makes a great fondue too!

Nevermind Kim - said...

mmmm chocolate. It's such a weakness of mine. I've never had a toblerone in my life though. I feel like I'm missing out!

waffle-and-sushi? A bold combination, Mouse :)

There is something about that place that is hypnotic! I "almost" gave in the other day and I roamed around the christmas candy isle for at least 5 minutes picking up things, looking at the NI, putting it back and picking up something else etc. Then I was like what the hell and I doing...I am not going to see anything with respectable NI on the back no matter how many packages I pick up! I won that battle that day, but I've lost many since then!

Me and Shoppers have issues...I never make it out of there without spending at least $30 (notice AT LEAST!)

I am glad you didn't take pics yesterday...I only had sushi last week but am still craving it...I am hoping I can talk Danny into taking me out next week (or why wait, Friday is a lovely evening for a dinner out, nes pas?)

oh - there are pics, jen. I just didn't have time before. I thought I had to train someone at 9:30.

I *could* post it now :P

Shopper's is a dangerous, heavenly place. I always go in there for just one thing, like picking up a prescription, and walk out with a bagful of stuff. Often involving chocolate, trashy magazines, or unnecessary body care products. Sigh.

I got to "CVS" about once a week. Usually to just pick up one thing. I swear that I have NEVER left spending less that $50. And it's usually closer to $80! WTF? I don't even know what I buy. It's like crack for shoppers.

OMG - Shoppers sucks me in EVERY SINGLE TIME! I go in for toilet paper and I come out with that plus shampoo, mascara, a magazine, you name it. I don't think I have ever gone in there and gotten just what I had on my list. However is in charge of their marketing is a total genius!

Ack, I've been eyein' up those Toblerone's myself. Haven't caved YET though!
