Oink, Oink!

I'd say it was a month or so ago that Drew came home with a surprise for me. Now, I love all surprises--big, small, free, expensive doesn't matter. It's just the idea of someone thinking enough of me that he/she takes the time to bring me a little treasure. Admittedly though, a large number of my all time favorite surprises involve chocolate in some form. So you can just imagine how tickled I was by this:

But wait, you haven't even seen the best part yet. Not only are those M&Ms in there--which many of you know is my most favorite of all the candies--but they are very special M&Ms.

Do you see the little piggies printed on them? Oh my, but are those little guys cute!

Perhaps now you're wondering why I took so long to post about this little tin of happiness. Well, you see Drew was going to have these placed on the pillows of all of the attendees at the conference that he went to last week. I didn't want to post about his plans prior to them actually being carried out as that would so ruin that giddy feeling one gets when encountering an unexpected treat. Yes, I'm quite sure that all of those attending the conference read this blog--I mean why wouldn't they?

Ok, odds were slim, but I really didn't want to take the chance. Plus, I'm lazy. The hazard of this delay was that I had to spend over a month just looking at those tasty treats dreaming about how they'd melt in my mouth, not in my hand. My will power got quite the workout.

Of course, my will power is not as strong as I'd like to think it is. It really wasn't up to the challenge actually.  I had no choice but to post this today as I was down to my final container--the contents of which quite eerily disappeared as I was typing this up. Imagine the odds. Oh, and if there's anyone out there reading  who attended the conference but hasn't yet devoured her Pig M&Ms due to concerns about the tastiness factor, I can hereby vouch for the edibility of the contents of the tin. Lip-smackingly so. Oink!
