Chocolate Pistachio Puppy Chow

Chocolate Pistachio Puppy Chow

The Story:

One of my favorite things to do on Sunday is come home from church, take off my tight pencil skirt, 4-inch heels, silk blouse and slip on some cozy sweats and a flannel button-up.  But I’m always too tired to take of the jewelry.  So all day long I have on a comfy outfit that’s bling’d out with pearls and gold.  I always laugh if I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror.  I look like a cross between a lumberjack and a princess on her way to Prince Charming’s ball.

So here’s a cross between kid-treat and gown-up flavor combo.

    good., however suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Chocolate Pistachio Puppy Chow – Your
    Cup of Cake is kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article headlines to
    grab people to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about
    what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a
    little livelier.
