I scream for ice cream


I love ice cream, there I said it. I have not had ice cream in my freezer in months! Last attempt to buy good ole' Blue Bell was shot down by Aaron with "we don't need it." Well sure we do! I need that cold creamy fix after my dinner like he needs a cold Coors Light with dinner. Come on!

Fast forward to last night. I was promised a trip to get ice cream. You have no idea how much I looked forward to that all day long. I think I even told Lauren about it Tuesday night on our run. I'm sure she thinks I'm crazy. I've been training for the 1/2 and last night was our night off from running. Perfect, right? I googled to see which shop was closest to us. Cold Stone was the closest. Great. As much as I love ice cream, I really can't stand Cold Stone. I don't know why, I just have never liked it. At all. I searched for Marble Slab - my LOVE - and found one inside our mall. When I told A the options, he seemed more interested in the one outside the mall. You even say the word "mall" to the boy and he starts sweating. So I thought it wouldn't hurt to give CS another try. Well we get there and seriously waited in line for 15 minutes. Not starting off too good. I ask if they have marshmallow topping (oh come one, like you've never had it!) and she of course said "No, but we do have mini marshmallows" in her chipper high school voice. Listen chick, that's not the same. Not even close. So I'm irritated, tell A to order and I will try to decide what I want. Aaron leans over to me and says "you're pissed aren't you?" I love it because he knows me so well. And yes, I was not happy. So I order some coffee ice cream with heath or some crap. I got the smallest size and the dude fills it all the way to the top where it is over flowing. The second I got to my car it was leaking all down the sides. Of course we failed to pick up napkins. I sat it down in my cup holder, because I can't drive and hold this stupid messy cup at the same time. As soon as I pull out of the parking lot, ice cream has dripped everywhere. I WAS MAD. First off, it's not even good ice cream, second, I am going to have to detail my dang car now! So what did I do? I pulled into a gas station and tossed it. This is after a few choice words with A, because obvi this is his fault. He is the one, after all, that seemed a little hesitant about going into the mall for Marble Slab. He chunked his too, more or less to prove a point to me I'm sure. He offered to go to the store to get me some ice cream but at this point I was in no mood. I was angry. Like ears red and burning angry.

Then I got to thinking how stupid this sounds to be so angry over ice cream. I was seriously pouting. How ridiculous is that? I think I had my hopes up and my mind was set on some delicious ice cream and when it turned into a disaster I freaked. I slept on it and woke up feeling silly. I think Aaron thinks I'm crazy. But I also think he needs to understand the importance of ice cream to his woman! We laid around this morning and snuggled before getting out of bed. All was back to normal. It's amazing what sleep can do. I swear it must be hormones. And as we were in the closet getting ready this morning he said "What's your favorite Blue Bell ice cream?" Hmm. Does he have something up his sleeve? Or was he just curious? And I didn't even answer, because I can't choose just one. But rocky road is a good start. :)

hilarious! i'm laughing out loud for real in my office! i really don't like cold stone much either, its too chewy!

I agree mini marshmallows..not the same at all. I LOVE marshmallow topping. I don't really like CS...mainly because they don't carry the yummy white stuff.

Hope your guy brings you some yummy ice cream tonight:-)

I'm not a fan of CS either. Marble Slab all the way!

Tara Gibson  – (August 20, 2009 at 2:22 PM)  

haha..dont mess with a girl and her favorite desserts! I am not the biggest fan of cs either. Is marshmellow topping, marshmellow creme? if so I LOOOOVE that stuff!

PinkSass  – (August 20, 2009 at 2:24 PM)  

Oh no I totally understand. You have your favorites and if you are going to get some ice cream you want it to be the good stuff.

That is hilarious! And no, pouting like that isn't ridiculous because it was his fault. I would have reacted exactly the same way. And B would have called me a brat. Haha!

I'm sorry CS didn't work out but hopefully Aaron will be a good hubby and bring you some blue bell tonight :)

I understand the importance of ice cream! ha! I think I'm missing out, I've never heard of Marble Slab before!

Sleep has solves a lot of problems for me lately :) I get mad over things...be them serious or not...and I usually feel better about them in the morning (or as least have a clearer head to really think about the situation!)

I hope you get some GOOD ice cream :)

Oh honey I completely understand. I'm not much of an ice cream person but there are times when I just NEED to have some. We got some walking around in MD one night and it was terrible. I was so upset I threw it away and also got (irrationally??) mad at my husband. Perhaps you'll find a pint in your freezer tonight? :)

Gotta love the marble slab!! This story was too cute!

p.s. you have to get a sewing machine and keep in touch!! :)

Courtney  – (August 24, 2009 at 4:34 PM)  

I totally agree! I hate it when you're all ready for a treat like that and then its such a pain to get it or doesn't live up to the expectations. Way to go you for just throwing it out instead of wasting your calorie splurge on something that wasn't even that good! Have you tried Piccomolo or Berripop yet??? Both are tasty and more waistline friendly than Marble Slab! Also there is another Marble Slab in CC shopping center...

I love this post! I can so relate about really wanting something (food in particular) and it not working out and I'm the one that throws the fit! haha! I'm glad we have good husbands who still love us after our fit is over :)

Amy Lynn  – (August 27, 2009 at 7:11 PM)  

hahaha, I can totally picture myself throwing a fit over the SAME EXACT thing. When I get my heart set on something, and it doesn't work out (or taste) as I pictured, I get ALL KINDS of bent out of shape! lol
