Drive-by blogging

Working on an extensive recap -- in my mind -- of Em's first flight up to San Francisco this weekend.

In the meantime, here's a quickie post for ya.

Matt and Nicole, our Nor. Cal pals, braved traffic to come meet us in the city. Em had fun with them, like she always does.

Earlier in the day, roaming the city on my own, I found Limited Edition Coconut M&Ms. Intrigued, I bought a pack and shared them with the gang. We found them to be quite yummy -- like Almond Joy without the "Almond", just "Joy."

Matt, who is doing a hardcore Biggest Loser contest with his pals, loved them so much that he promptly went out and bought a CASE to save for the end of the contest.

He obviously thought they were pretty cool.

  1. i must find some of those m&m's! i love mounds and almond joy...sometimes i feel like a nut, sometimes i don't!

  2. I have to try those M&Ms!

  3. I saw those M7Ms the other day but resisted getting any because I wasn't sure how they would taste. But, if they taste like mounds/almond joy...I'll have to definitely try them.

  4. Say what? Coconut M&M's? You sold me when you said they were just like Almond Joy's except without the almonds. Where did you find them? I need to get some!!!

  5. There you go taunting me with the coconut M&Ms again... I CAN'T FIND THEM ANYWHERE!!! This pregnant woman has searched everywhere for these AND the giant Cheetos... No luck! :(

  6. I must find these!

  7. coconut M&Ms sound divine!! I do love the almond part too.

  8. those M&Ms look yum!

    if you like coconut + almonds, I just bought some choc/almond/coconut things at trader joe's that are good. it's in a square plastic container with all of the other chocolate-covered treats.
