Latest Obsession. Mc Cone Crazy!

Not sure if it's the heat, the hormones or WHAT..but I can't stop eating these:

I honestly think I've had at least one a day if not TWO somedays (GASP!) because..well...Brad forces me to go for nice, summer-y car rides with him and we just end up there; ;-)



To make the whole situation crazy messy, I've begun ordering the chocolate dipped. I ordered it once, I was driving. One never gets enough  napkins (ARE there enough napkins? It can hardly survive the 5 minute drive home.) and it turns into this:

So Brad and I laughed at the mess and I said "I'm going to stick with the regular one."

Fast forward to a few days later and I ordered the chocolate dipped one AGAIN while he asked "but I thought it was too messy?" and I said something akin to "It now seems like something I must master."

And..drumroll please....

I made it home without a drip or chocolate chunk ON me!

What did happen instead: I took the garbage out and got egg shells and egg goo all over my foot and new skirt! It was gross. The skirt was new..from the Goodwill. I was there to buy frames and saw it and had to have it. At $3.99 it was a bargain AND the best part: A comfy knit! If you've read this blog for a bit, you know of my deep affinity for comfy knits. It is made of SWEATSHIRT material! Has a little cute "flip" at the end of it..and again..it's a SWEATSHIRT, but a skirt! "Looks like a pump, feels like a sneaker!"

Does it say "Mildly dressy yet ready to party and/or spill a cone or egg on this?" It DO!

Yes..I will photograph it. It needs to be washed first.

Yes..when Brad touched the fabric yesterday and realized it was a sweatpant, I do believe he may have been just a WEE bit jealous.

Unrelated sidebar: He has to have hip surgery again next month. :-(  He's only 40, so it's a genetic issue that he didn't realize he had until he was in tremendous pain last year and we found out. Has to do with the way his hipbone and socket connect together, the cartilage and the shape is incorrect so eventually the bone gets "stuck" as it's rotating. Last year it was his right, this year it's his left. Please if you can..send prayers for his left hip,love and light. The kid deserves a break. He'll have to get the surgery, but I am hoping for an easier road to recovery this time that is far less painful than 2011. So..if you will..bring it.

I will do my part by feeding us cones over here.

Happy Monday!

Holla!

xxoo~

First of all, I am so jealous of the skirt. I am way more jealous than Brad!
I just had a cone myself- chocolate topped with a scoop of cherry vanilla. Oops, there goes my ass again!
I've never had a cone from McD's. I'm too interested in the fries and the Cherry Berry thing. ;)
Sending prayers for Brad and his hip surgery...I really feel for the guy. No fun. ;(
I'm going to cruise your etsy shop now. xoxo, TOT

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism

or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content

I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up
