Because my posts have been a little serious lately...

I thought it was time to lighten the mood a bit.  My bloggie-friend (which means we haven't met in real life but I'm sure if and when we do we will laugh our heads off!) Hillary over at The Other Mama (check out her blog--it's super cute!) is starting a new blog-carnival today--called Friday Favorites.  To join in, I'm supposed to post my favorite something.  Could be anything.

My hubby thought I should post about my favorite husband.  Good one, hon.

I thought and thought (for like FIVE whole minutes!)...and came up with my favorite....nothing.  Nothing!  Do I have no favorites???  Of course I do...think, brain-o-mine!  I decided I needed my nighttime treat to help me think clearer.  And then it came to me!  Literally.  In a mug.

I am going to post on...(the suspense is killing you isn't it?)... my favorite way to eat ice cream.  Seriously, I am.  It's all I got tonight, and I feel like being a little silly.  So here we go (drumroll, please).

Dawn's favorite way to eat ice cream:

1) in a mug.  (This was foreshadowed above--I'm fancy like that).  Any type of mug is fine, although I really like my minnie mouse mug if you had to press me on it.  I felt that was important to clarify in case you think I am completely apathetic about such important choices.

2)  propped up in our bed, with my comfy pjs on, and my heated mattress pad warming the sheets.  The ice cream chills me and I climb in the covers and it's all warm and toasty.  Ohyes.  The thermal joy of it all.

3)  scooped and brought to me by my hubby.  He has been the designated ice cream scooper throughout our marriage.  I can wield an ice cream scoop as well...but my dad always did it for us when I was a kid, and now hubby does.  It's pretty sweet, huh?

4) at the very end of the day.  The closer to sleepy-time the better, cause you know, it's healthy to slam sugar and fat right before you go comatose for seven hours.  And if we wanted to dream a bit, it's at the end of a day where I felt productive, and got everything done I meant to.  But since that has only been known to happen in reality three times, I choose to enjoy it on other days as well.

5)  watching something I love to watch on TV.  It could be So You Think You Can Dance,  American Idol, The Office (by the way, still recovering from Pam nursing the wrong baby tonight) or House.  We also love to eat ice cream while we watch The Biggest Loser--cause we love irony. And yeah, I know..eating in front of the TV...late at night...breaks all the rules.  Ohwell.

6)  with my man next to me.  Obviously.

7) with a surprise cookie on the bottom of the mug.  Hubby does this every now and then to surprise me and it's love in cookie form.  Or he's trying to fatten my up for some reason, which is one thing I don't need help with.

So there you have it.  My favorite way to eat ice cream.  If you think I sound like a sweet-toothed sloth--yeah, I resemble that remark. At least at 10 pm I do.

After this nightly ritual, I thought it only appropriate to also let you know my favorite workout video.  Consider it a bonus.

You're welcome.

Oh, and in case you are looking for something with a little more substance...follow Kristen as she writes from her Compassion Blogger trip to Kenya.  I'm loving it.

Your post was great but I have to say I have laughing tears in my eyes from that video. I have never seen it before but it was one of the funnies things I've seen in a while!! Thanks for sharing that.

The acorn doesn't fall very far from the tree, although the cookie at the bottom of the mug is an original creation of your hubby's! I'm so glad that I've passed on the important things in life to cream, the cure for everything! Too bad I haven't had real ice cream in a mug in a very long time! Oh well, it gives my vicarious pleasure to know my #1 daughter is loving every minute of her nightly ritual.

The Poo Chi is owning me. Absolutely hysterical.

1- Jim and Pam in the hospital- awesome.

2- Cookie at the bottom? If that husband's not taken, he might go fast. I would hold tight to him!

3- We use an ice cream spade. My aunt sent it to me when I had my tonsils out (at 25!) and I won't got back to a scooper.

4- LOVE the compassion bloggers.

So glad we're friends!

Too cute!!

Hey! Hopped over here from Hillary's blog. That is a most excellent way to eat ice cream, especially the "hubby scoops it brings it to me with a cookie at the bottom" part.

I should have thought about teaching my Husband to do that a quarter century ago!

Jennifer said...

I love your post....too funny! Now, I'm craving ice cream!

Mary @ Giving Up On Perfect said...

We used to eat pizza while watching The Biggest Loser. So you probably won't be surprised to learn that I LOVE the idea of a surprise cookie at the bottom of your ice cream!

And oh yes, The Office was so good this week. I laughed, I cried, I remembered why I loved the show in the first place. And I won't even get started on my love of SYTYCD. :)

OK, this sounds crazy, but one of my ex boyfriend's took me to his house, and his mom made me an ice cream sundae. It had vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and crunched up potato chips. I kinda freaked out at first, but she said "Try it- if you don't love it I will make you a new one." So I ate the potato chippy sundae. And it was AWESOME. It's like eating chocolate covered pretzels- the whole sweet and salty thing going for it. I still get a hankerin' for a chippy sundae once in a while...

Shelly @ Life on the Wild Side said...

That is so cute! Loved it!

Christy said...

Ah, I am an expert at Poo Chi! That was hysterical and any food brought to me by my husband would taste wonderful.

Lori said...

That's an awesome video! Thanks for the laugh! Love your favorites - have a great week!

Allison said...

Oh yum, that sounds heavenly. I've been craving ice cream, and this just sent me over the edge.
