I Scream, You Scream, We ALL Scream for ICE CREAM!

I would tell you that I don't have a sweet tooth the size of Texas but that would be a bold face lie. And I can't lie to you. Not now. Not after all we've been through!

I began looking through my iPhone pictures from the weekend which is basically a reminder of what actually took place. It's amazing that I can turn on Hope Floats halfway through the movie and quote the line verbatim but I can't remember what we did Saturday night...but to give myself a little credit, how could you forget how Justin Matesse glides across that dance floor with that smirk, that cowboy hat, those boots...eyes boring into Birdie...then takes her hand and asks her to dance. She says no because she doesn't remember how to dance and he says this, "Dancing is just a conversation between two people...talk to me..."

Oh my...accelerated heart rate, a few tears...you can see why I might recall Justin Matesse but forget that trip to Steak 'n Shake...exhilarating as it may be...

I digress...As I was uploading pictures from the weekend I couldn't help but notice a common theme that does nothing for my hips. But when it's 100 degrees outside and you're melting in the Texas humidity I say forget the hips...bring on the ice cream! I may or may not have had it 3 times this weekend. In my defense there were birthday parties, Sunday School parties and a run-in with homemade butterfinger ice cream at our favorite BBQ joint. We've been going there for about 7 years now and have always passed on dessert until this fateful weekend when Kristen ordered a child's plate that came with a scoop of heaven. It's safe to say they had us at "homemade butterfinger ice cream included".

So I say, "You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!"

Adia's 1st birthday party Friday night...complete with a princess cake. In case you can't tell, the princess was none-too-happy when someone took her wand away!

No trip to Jason's deli is complete without a cone for the road...

Our Sunday School lake party wasn't short on homemade ice cream, but Dave got the gold star because he found the freezer of homemade PEACH ice cream...yes please!

There was watermelon for good measure...

Hope you all had a great weekend and stayed cool!

I LOVE Hope Floats but I hate to watch it because I cry every single time I see it. When Bernice is standing outside the house crying for her daddy to come back - I lose it. Between the sad parts and how darn gorgeous Harry Connick Jr. is, well I'm crying most of the movie. Might have to watch it again soon. Better stock up on Kleenex first.

The scene where she's in the film developing store and he sends her a picture of himself standing outside, flowers in hand is one of my all time favorites!

I'm an ice cream addict myself...and I LOVE Hope Floats. It's one of my all time favorite movies. That line that you put: "Dancing is just a conversation between two people...talk to me..." is seriously one of the best movie lines of all time. And I love that they say "My cup runneth over..."

Girl, got your comment about the Nutro and I would definitely check into it and look for symptoms your dog may not have. Our other two were asymptomatic but she was also the most food sensitive so it made sense she would react to it. Looking back, I think there were subtle things I should have noticed but didn't because I didn't know to look. Our other two used to throw up a yellow bile now and then also and since we've quit using that food, that hasn't happened once in 3 months. To me, where there is smoke, there is fire...

I love Jason's Deli ice cream! Sometimes I go there just for the ice cream, ha!

Emily said...

All I know is that Jason's Deli needs to be next door to me because I would eat salad and ice-cream 2 times a day and love every second of it!!

Vanessa said...

Mmmmm ice cream! One of my biggest weaknesses!
