Ice Cream Let Down
This is my favorite thing to get at Coldstone so you can imagine my excitement when I was driving home Saturday night and Chris requested a "treat". I anxiously place our order and race home to devour my devilishly fantastic ice cream. You can only imagine my disappointment as I bound through our bedroom door to find Chris asleep. My shoulders slump as I ruffle the brown bag to wake is sorry behind up. "Oh, we can still eat it if you want," he says. Heck no! Then I look like that fat one and we can't have that! It's okay I tell myself because there's always tomorrow, we'll put the kids to bed and I'll curl up in a warm blanket to finally eat my treat. So Sunday evening arrives, the kids are in bed, our bedroom window is open so our room is extra chilly, I'm in my comfy clothes under the covers as I begin to demolish my heavenly goody. The first bite was good, not great so I kept eating expecting to die and go to heaven any second. I keep eating and get oh so disappointed with every bite. The ice cream girl decided to add 10lbs. of almonds and that is all I can taste! Gross! I like almonds in the proper amounts but a whole mouth full, bite after bite is too much! This mouth-watering combo is ruined! Too many stinken almonds!! I've wasted all those calories!! AHHHH! I hate being disappointed in my food!
