It's been storming here in Utah - rain last night, all night long and most of the day today so far. The rain turned to sleet this morning so it sort of looks like snow but it's not really. The thunder and lightening woke me up at 3 AM this morning and I longed to open the window and hear it beat on the roof but it was really chilly...never mind.
I'd been working all day yesterday and on those days, I feel especially guilty for leaving my daughter at a sitter (it's that maternal conflict) so when she suggested we go get ice cream, I thought nothing of the weather. "Of course! That sounds like a great idea".
We had to get bundled up like eskimos to even go outside, it was that cold and took off for the local Cold Stone Creamery (you been there? no? you are SOOO missing out). I thought we'd be the only ones there, but we weren't! Another family, and a cute little high school couple.
The Supreme Princess (as my little girl is now known as), is still at the age where color rules in ice cream selection. She got the "blue" ice cream since that's her fav color. It turned out to be "Cotton Candy" which she hates (who's kid is this anyway?). My fav ice cream is Strawberry.
Cold Stone makes these concoctions that are so amazing! And just so you know, I do not do that "Pay per Post" thing so this is NOT an advertisement. Just a personal endorsement. My fav concoction there is Our Strawberry Blonde, which is absolutely to die for! They use this "sweet cream ice cream" as their basis and it is heavenly! And, since the blue ice cream turned out to be not such a favorite flavor, I shared mine with the SP and because I'm a mother, I was okay with sharing my coveted ice cream with my favorite friend.
