Sarah's Real Life

See’s Candies recently opened a new location in Indianapolis at the Fashion Mall, and they hosted a private party for Indy bloggers last Thursday. I know this is normally a clothes-centric blog, but if there’s anything I love as much as clothes, it’s chocolate. You better believe I jumped on  that invite! And I’m so glad I did because Kristin and I had a great time.

Besides all the free candy, the coolest part of the night was when we got to race to see who could pack a box of 12 chocolates the fastest. It was honestly really hard! The famous episode of “I Love Lucy” was actually filmed at a See’s factory, and I think we all now have a new appreciation for her struggle with the assembly line.

Well, those were the highlights! I’ll leave you with a couple more photos of my outfit, including one with a mall janitor in the background…it was just too good not to share.

P.S. This post was not sponsored by See’s. They just gave me so freaking much free candy, I figured I could at least credit them and show some thanks for the party! Also thanks to Indianapolis Bloggers for organizing invitations.
