The Chocolate Shop

I was recently given some advise that my blog should be about what I like, and things I do.
So I'm going to blog tonight about a shop in my town that my friend and I went to for dinner last night.

It is called "The Chocolate Shop". Actually they just relocated from another spot and this was my first visit there. What make it unique to me is how it is decorate. Very 50's,
Hot Pink with the simulation of chocolate drips down the walls. In the center of the shop is all the candy bins,anything from flavored gum drops, gummie worms, to of course chocolate pecans, fudge, chocolate with peanut butter, chocolate, chocolate, everywhere. Above this hangs chocolate and hot pink umbrellas hung upside down.

To the other side they have two sections for birthday parties. The first is decorate in pink, with hints of green, lace, and pearls, tea settings like a little princess, this is for the girls, and next to that they have a table with tanks, trucks, GI Joe figures decorated with camouflage
for the boys . Through various shelves and basket bins, are little gift items for purchase, a lot of Hannah Montana, and even Betty Boop.

Well I said I had dinner and no I did not have chocolate for dinner. When you come in to the right is a little dinner area that serves hamburgers, Italian Beef, pizza and Chicago Style Hot dogs. All keeping with the 50's theme, including a soda fountain that has all kinds of handmade ice cream, okay you got me I did have for dessert a scoop of chocolate peanut butter chocolate chunk revel. If the staff are dressed like soda fountain jerks.

I'm sorry I didn't bring my camera to post, but that just makes an excuse to go back.

I will say that the Italian beef was excellent, but the verdict is out on the Chicago Hot dog til my husband can taste it. He is the expert on that one.

Even though today is Saturday and I'm sure my fellow bloggers are busy with family and outside on such a gorgeous day, I have decided to post a little quote about friendship. The author is unknow.

"A friend is one who comes in when the whole world has gone out"

I'm writing this because I know of someone who is having some tough times in her family with a serious illness and I pointed out to her that she had a good group of friends around her that are willing to help and listen to her. She send me a note back saying that was very true, she had a great support group in her friends.

I don't think that the quote means that your family ignores or leaves when times are tough, but because they are going through the same rough times they can not always be objective and that's when you could use a good friend.

It reminded me of how my best friend is always there for me and I hope that I am always there for her. I have three great friends, my husband, my daughter Becky and then my friend Edie. She has always been there when I've needed help or just someone to talk and sound off. My family lives a distance from me so I have had to rely on her many times and I want her to know just how much I appreciate her.

As we go through are many task for in the day I think we take our friends and family for granted to I wanted to write this today to remind everyone we all have a best friend, whether it be you husband, daughter, sister or girlfriend we all have one.

About a week ago I wrote about a cardinal trying to build her nest in my hanging plants. We removed the nest because of watering. Well this morning I found her trying to build again. I guess the listen to be learned from this is eventually persistence pays off. If she lays eggs I'll try an take pictures of them and her babies.
