A Luxury

I'm so glad it's Wednesday evening. To me, that means the week is just about over. Tomorrow we have the 4-6 grade musical to keep us busy all day (i.e. I don't really have to teach. Instead I will be more like babysitting the kids at the auditorium). Not only is it going to be an easy day, it is also supposed to be warm and sunny. A nice change, because it's been freezing and dreary for a few days.

The "cherry on top" of all of this, is....
Starbucks ice cream! You have NO IDEA how happy this makes me. We NEVER buy anything besides vanilla ice cream. Luke eats it like it's going out of style, and likes vanilla because he loves to use it to make Root Beer floats. I am not a huge vanilla ice cream fan, so I usually just don't eat ice cream at home. There are way too many amazing flavors out there to just eat vanilla all the time!

Anyway, the stars have aligned for me tonight, and I have been able to purchase not one, but two pints of Starbucks ice crea! A pint of this stuff is usually between $4 and $5. Which, if you ask me, is just plain highway robbery. This week, however, Walgreens is having a buy one, get one FREE sale on Starbucks and Ben and Jerry's ice cream! I also had a coupon for $1 off when you buy 2. So I was able to purchase both pints for $3.79. That is a little more manageable!

I don't know if you understand how excited I am about this. It is the highlight of my day, hands down. I can't wait to lie down in bed, turn something girly on TV, and eat some of my Java Chip Frappuccino ice cream. And yes, you read that right. I'm TOTALLY eating it IN BED. This is the first time I've specifically bought a flavor of ice cream just for me since we got married! That's almost two years! So I'm going to pull out all the stops and really enjoy this ice cream! Ha! I'm going to eat just a little bit each night and see how long I can make it last. I probably won't splurge like this for another long time!

I bet you can't believe I just wrote an entire three paragraphs about this ice cream. Well, believe it. This girl LOVES ice cream, and it's been a looong time since I've gotten to choose a flavor just for me ;-) (I may be slightly exaggerating about my excitement level! ha!)

I hope you are all having a lovely Wednesday as well. Coming up later this week: Luke's 26th birthday festivities! HOLY COW we are getting old!! (At least I will always be 6 months and 4 days younger than him! ;-))


  1. Wow, that looks amazing. Ice cream usually makes my teeth hurt, so I tend to stick to cookies and cakes, but yum! :)

  2. Oh, that stuff is so good - and I love Ben and Jerry's too! I just bought some from Walmart, and I love it - though I didn't get as good a deal as you did!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
