1. After not having ice cream for months, I’ve now had ice cream twice in the space of a week and a half. I approve of this life change. On Tuesday night I went to Annette’s, and ohhhhh baby was it good. Oberweis had a somewhat limited selection of ice cream flavors, which made decision making a breeze when I went there after the Fourth, but Annette’s has approximately a billion flavors, and picking just one was a struggle. I ended up going with peanut butter cookie dough because peanut butter AND cookie dough?! Be still, my heart. It was phenomenal.
2. I’m trying very hard to not be predictable and whine about how much I despise this weather, so instead I’ll whine about how much I despise what this weather does to my clothing choices. Once it gets above 90 degrees, I stop wearing pants and their relatives (capris, shorts, etc.) and start wearing dresses. I don’t necessarily hate dresses…but aside from occasions where I need to look nice, dresses are never my first pick. I have the worst time trying to find dresses that fit me, and generally speaking the only ones that do are ones that have something around the waist–either an elastic band to make it cut in at the waist or a belt. I don’t like any sort of pressure on anything close to my stomach, so I spend too much of my day adjusting my dress trying to find a way to make it sit without irritating me. Worse than all day discomfort, though, is attempting to commute in a dress. The hem of my dresses and my work bag always get into fights while I’m walking, leading me to show off WAY more leg than I ever intend, and while I have some itty bitty Under Armour compression shorts from my high school soccer days that keep me from showing off more than just my legs, it’s still wildly awkward and not fun.
In short, dresses suck and I hate wearing them to work.
3. With that being said, eyes on the prize, people.
Sunday cannot get here soon enough.
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I don’t know if this is a real thing, but if I could find a chocolate ice cream with peanut butter and fudge swirls, peanut butter cups, cookie dough, and brownie bits, I would be the happiest ice cream eater in the world.
What do you wear to stay cool in hot and humid weather?
