Is there ice cream ANYWHERE around here?
I know ice cream is not great for you and that it is even worse late at night but it is our tradition to celebrate Liv's report cards, all (8!) of which have been good, with ice cream. Since Donny hadn't been home when she got it this spring, we brought it here to show him and celebrate. We decided tonight was the night. We stopped at Big Lots to buy a patio table that for now will be our dining/kitchen table in our apartment (pretty good idea, eh?) and then headed to find an ice cream place. Any place would do - Baskin Robbins, DQ, TCBY, Cold Stone, really, we aren't too picky. Nope. None. Nada. Zilch. In this big city, there are no ice cream parlors to be found. We walked into one place that looked promising called Bombay Sweets and Treats but it really did have sweets and treats from BOMBAY! So, after 30 minutes of driving, and only seeing places selling tacos or egg rolls we settled for Chick-fil-A milkshakes and headed home. Guess this is a prime example of when a GPS or iphone would be handy but you know us...no cable...rabbit ears on the TV...just gave in to texting... :)
