See's Candies (Yes, Again)

It occurred to me that you might still have time before Mother's Day to go to Sees.com and order candy for gift giving. I'm just sayin'...
This is the other See's Barbie doll that I bought a few years ago - the San Francisco Barbie (love her):
I am such a fan of See's Candies that I save all of these advertisements that come in our newspaper. I have a file for them! From last year:
...and the year before:
When you go into one of their shops, you can get an adorable little miniature box that is sized just right to hold a gift card within - what could be cuter than that? Seriously, if your Mother (or anyone else you know) loves chocolate, this is a wonderful gift to give:
I will never apologize nor explain about my unabashed adoration of See's Candy. Even though it can wreak havoc with my weight loss efforts, I want it still. I can't help it. I LOVE it. And I will NEVER give it up. (I have lost 30 pounds so far - so I'm doing SOMETHING right!)

Hi Faith! Heck no - that's a 15 year old picture! So - no - I don't really look like that anymore, unfortunately. It just happened to be one of very few photos of myself that I like, so I decided to add it anyway. But thank you, by the way.

Heidi, you do still look like that! Love, Deb

Great post, Heidi! See's Candy is the one must-buy item for me anytime I travel to California. My whole family loves the stuff. No other candy even comes close!

I've never seen that Barbie before! I've never had See's cany before either. Sounds like we're missing out! I've heard of the brand though. It sure looks yummy!

Thank you LorLore. I must say that Barbie seems to be able to eat See's and keep her girly figure. So that means we can too (or regain it, or whatever). I love the little See's Candy box. If my son would ever remember Mother's Day that would be a good present for me, it doesn't even need a gift card in it. I agree with Faith, that the picture of you is great... wonder who the photographer was ;-}. Twyla and Lindsey... geteth thyselves to the nearest See's Candy store immediately, you have been missing out. Love T
