There should be no secrets in a marriage.

The late Elder Theodore M. Burton of the Seventy said:

“Couples interested only in themselves don’t communicate. Lack of communication then becomes a major stumbling block in developing true love.” (Ensign, May 1979, p. 73.)

And this is why I have spent the last 20 minutes looking for my husband’s secret stash of Cadbury eggs.  Come on, honey, show me the love.

p.s.  In the search, I did manage to find some Nerds leftover from last Easter.  And for the record, yes, Nerds can go stale.

  1. using chocolate radar on your behalf….beep…beep…..beep. Results: it is on the office behind the copier. Or he took it with him to work.

  2. Goodness how I want some Cadbury cream eggs!!!! I think a general authority once said that husbands who don’t share (or let their wife buy and eat) Cadbury cream eggs aren’t showing true love. If only I could find that quote and email to my husband! lol

  3. I never have to go digging for that kind of thing. My husband can’t hide things, and not because I go looking for them. He just can’t stand hiding stuff. Or saving presents until the proper gift giving occasion. He’s always trying to get me to open my presents early. It takes a strong spine not to give in, I tell you.

    Besides the kind of candy he would keep in his stash (if he had one, which he doesn’t) would be nasty candy that I would never touch: Twizzlers, Hot Tamales, and carmels. Blech.

  4. Haha. My hubby has a secret chocolate stash too. but, I can’t say that I blame him. He knows me all too well, and knows that if I knew where it was, the kids and I would eat it all in one sitting.

  5. Yeah, if it were my husband and he really wanted to keep it away from me he would have taken it to work with him. Maybe you should pay him a surprise visit at the office! (With ALL the kids- that will teach him not to hide chocolate in the future!)

  6. I hate chocolate! Just the smell of it puts 10 lbs on my hips. It’s just not part of my life anymore.(…sigh…) Talking about it still makes my mouth water, though.

    But the 32 lb weight loss over the last two months is worth it. I’m on an incredibly healthy diet that chocolate would sabaotage. (5 cups of vegetables, three 4 oz servings of protein and 1 fruit a day.)

    Keep looking for the hidden chocolate and eat some for me 🙂

  7. Dal shows his extreme love by HIDING treats from me. He is always bringing something home for me and I swear I wouldn’t weigh as much as I do if he would just quit it. so I ask him to hide stuff from me.

    I am pleased to hear the Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs saved your marriage. Candy usually does. 😉

  8. My kids definitely would have eaten the Nerds anyway. They don’t care about staleness!

    For me, it’s the mini eggs that are to die for. Mmmm…

  9. *drool*

    I don’t even *like* cadbury eggs (the mini ones, yes; big ones, no), but I want them.

    Too bad they would send my sugars through the roof. i tell ya, gestational diabetes sucks.

Please say something. I've said enough. :)
