A Package in the Mail Leads to a Facebook Fail

Ya know how my mom sends me packages in the mail with food? Yeah, she’s awesome. (Another reason she’s awesome: she ran a half marathon last weekend and took 2nd in her division! Go Mom!) Anyway, today, I got my Easter basket! Thanks Mom!DSC_0864-8 That’s right. DARK Cadbury Mini Eggs.DSC_0867-7She also included some version of Ferrero that I have never seen before: Ferrero Rondnoir. Holy crap. Run — don’t walk, don’t drive — to the store and buy these. You’ll need to burn the calories running because you’ll want to eat mass quantities of these.  DSC_0872-9My mom also included this note:DSC_0865-8 To which I respond: Mom, do you know me at all???

And you’re all thinking, what are almondettes? These, my friends, are almondettes.DSC_0873-8But it just looks like a ball of chopped almonds? Oh, but wait… open it up…NOUGAT!!DSC_0880-4 I love these things. Always have. Every year growing up, I would try (usually successfully) to find my mom’s stash before Easter and sneak some away. As far as I know, you can only get them in Utah from this candy & chocolate shop. I think all of my brothers love these…but I’m pretty sure all of their spouses hate them. So maybe it’s a nostalgia thing? Or maybe all my sister-in-laws have really bad taste. It’s possible; they did marry my brothers.  😉  j/k  Love my bros!

nom nom nom. almondette….in.my.mouth. Mom, honestly, you think these will last long enough to need to be frozen? Come on now.

Maizey wanted in on the action. Hey mom – what was on the table? None of your business puppy! You’re allergic anyway! (look at her little tongue in the bottom left picture. heheh.)

So are you wondering how all of this led to a Facebook fail? I was just so excited that I thought I’d log into Facebook for the first time in weeks and actually update my status. I did it quickly since I needed to head back to work. I got home tonight and had a slew of comments mocking my status. This is what it said:

TERI loves the Easter basket my mom failed me!

Um…oops?

    I think those almondettes look really good. I don’t know why your SILs wouldn’t like them. And so do those Ferrero chocolates. How nice that you still get an Easter basket! What a loving momma. 🙂

    Ahaha, that’s hilarious! I am constantly making typos like that because I’m constantly multitasking. Those almondettes look like just my cup of tea…I would devour without freezing them, too. 🙂

      yeah, it’s a pretty small company. Not many people know about them. My mom grew up on them too so it’s kind of a family thing, I guess!

    LMAO at the facebook status. I have to read through what I write on there a few times b/c I always seem to forget a word. And me having access to FB on my phone when I go out for drinks is NOT a good thing.

    Those almondettes look fantastic!! And your dog is just too cute 🙂
