Tea and Chocolate
Today I realized there are 10 more school days (days without the kids) to go Christmas shopping. After next Friday, there is another 2 1/2 week break from school for the holidays.
So out I went. While other friends go to fancy stores and buy beautiful Longchamp bags and designer kids clothes (petite bateau, jacadi) to bring back to family (you know who you are) I bring back food. I really got quite a bit of shopping done today at two stores: Mariage Frères and La Maison du Chocolat. Often they are located near each other, so it makes my shopping very convenient. I particularly like going to La Maison du Chocolat because 9/10 times they offer a gouter/taste of something. Today it was a wonderful truffle. Shopping is tough!
Mariage Frères: So many Tea, so little time!

I still have shopping to do also. Actually, I have a lot of shopping to do! I did figure out what I am buying my husband, and I am so excited about the gift. I am terrible at keeping secrets though. Isn't that terrible? I always want people to open their gifts as soon as I buy them. Silly, huh!?

And keep me away from La Maison du Chocolat. Their chocolate is too good to stop eating.
