An unlimited budget? Chocolate and shopping for sure!

An unlimited budget? Chocolate and shopping for sure!

Our family has always been on a pretty strict budget. If we’d like to stretch our dollar, we have to be savvy in our spending, pretty much all the time.

We have our lists of our wants and our needs, and we pretty much always stick to the needs, very rarely splurging on the wants.

Recently, I was asked to consider how I’d spend some “me money” with an unlimited budget, and it really got me thinking.

I don’t think I’ve ever had an unlimited budget for anything before!
I tried to think of what I’d choose if I could just splurge. A pocketbook? Shoes? Clothing? Something I might want, but don’t actually need?

Chocolate?

Definitely chocolate!

I think I’d do a combination of all of it: If I had an unlimited budget, some crazy “me money” to spend, I think I’d get myself a whole new outfit, just for the heck of it, with shoes and a purse to match.

In my purse, I’d be sure to have some Lindt LINDOR milk chocolate truffles! My new favorite Lindor caramel truffles would be at the top of my list!

In fact, I think that the next time I have the urge to splurge, I might just do that–treat myself to Lindor truffles without the new wardrobe! Each time I take a bite of the irresistibly smooth chocolate center, I’ll dream about that unlimited budget shopping spree.

With their smooth, irresistible caramel centers, these LINDOR truffles are my Me Time Treats!

Any mom of young children will tell you, your “me time” pretty much disappears when a baby appears on the scene. From the day your child is born you want to spend all of your focus, all of your time all of your everything with the newest member of your family; and that’s the way it’s supposed to be!

Your new baby, your child and children are the star of the show.

But, every so often, you wish for just a little time to steal away.

Recently, I was asked to think of the most shameless excuse to escape for some “me time,” and I thought way back to when my kids were really little. I thought of when I’d go to a doctor’s appointment, for me, on my own, by myself. It could be a well visit, a cold, it didn’t matter. I’d listen to grown-up songs on the radio on the way there and back. I’d bring along my coffee, my book, and sit back and read; even if it was just for a few minutes. I’ll never forget (and this is a true story) the physician’s assistant coming into the room and seeing me sitting in a chair, in my johnny, reading a book, drinking coffee. I looked up at her holding her blood pressure cuff, and said, “Take your time. This is my Me Time.”

I will say it’s gotten easier as my children have gotten older, to enjoy something on my own.

Every day with my lunch I have a little treat, just for me: a little bit of Lindt chocolate; either a couple of pieces of my favorite salted caramel chocolate bar or a couple of their fabulous LINDOR chocolate truffles. The truffles are my absolute favorite, because of the center! I find them to be totally irresistible; you can’t eat just one! Luckily you don’t have to.

And guess what?
I just found out: LINDOR has a new flavor: milk chocolate truffles with a caramel milk chocolatecenter!!!

I’ve had them.

They’re amazing.

The caramel center literally melts in your mouth; it’s so smooth.

The next time you’re looking for a little treat just for you, give the new LINDOR caramel milk chocolate truffles a try!
