Pay Me in Ice Cream

in All Posts

Good evening!


You know how Maggie will give eye contact for treats?  Well, I will run errands for ice cream.


Specifically, Ben and Jerry’s.


Funny marriage moment… The Husband comes into my ‘office’ (AKA desk nook) and asks me to run an errand with him.  I pause and say, “Weeeeell, I will go with you… but only under one condition.”  He looks at me and says, “Do you want ice cream?”  Hah!  It’s like he can read my mind. 


Errands + ice cream = Not so bad, indeed.


I had loads of deliciously healthy foods today, too, but all I managed to snap a picture of was dinner.  The Husband was in charge of cooking today and made crispy sweet potato fries, rice, and a veggie burger.  We are slowly turning in veggie burgers.  And I don’t mind one bit.



Tomorrow is an exciting day!!!

  • Krystina (Krystina Zena) March 21, 2012, 11:22 pm

    Haha, I always respond to my boyfriend with “Can we get froyo?” or “Can I stop at Whole Foods?” with a series of “pleeeease, I’ll be quick” until he gives in. 😛

  • Linz @ Itz Linz March 21, 2012, 11:23 pm

  • Jen March 22, 2012, 1:13 am

    Ahahahaha…I KNEW you needed some ice cream (okay, so you didn’t eat it with pickles, but still…). 🙂

    Actually, I’ve been craving ice cream myself. Can I blame the unseasonably warm (NOT that I’m complaining) weather?

  • Cait @ Beyond Bananas March 22, 2012, 5:55 am

    I think I could be paid in some expensive dark chocolate. I’m pretty sure I would do any mundane task for it!

  • Kelly March 22, 2012, 7:18 am

    I have been on a burger kick too. SO GOOD!!

  • Amber K March 22, 2012, 2:48 pm
