the sun has arrived!

It's finally sunny in Portland. THANK YOU GOD! I've been less hungry during the heat, but there is one problem with summer...ice cream.

Okay, it's not a problem exactly, and I'm a year-round ice cream eater no matter the weather....but i'll be damned if the sun dappling through the leaves into my window doesn;t make me think of fudge ripple...or half-baked...or the entire Ben And Jerry's section in my local grocery store where pints are on sale for 2.27.

It's bad. I want it all the time. But I do have two things looming in the future that are (kinda) keeping me in check. 1)the wedding. Specifically, the bridesmaid dress that is a size 14 and fits me! Woot woot! I could be a little smaller and fit better, but at this point, I'm all for maintaining and having fun! 2)my run! It's coming up and I need to train in the heat and push myself to be sore more often.

Good luck to you all in your enjoyment of summer!


  1. A tasty alternative to ice cream: freeze bananas with peanut butter (slice the banana long wise and spread peanut butter on it then smoosh together like a sandwich). Throw the banana in a belnder with 1/4 cup of chocolate milk or chocolate soy milk, blender until thick and serve. YUM!!!

  2. Ice cream is so hard to avoid. :( Great job with the dress!!! That is so fantastic!

  3. Hey Ladycakes!!! I know, it's been all to long :( But I'm making a come back - and it's going to be sweet.

    You've make some wicked progress during my hiatus :) congrats on your accomplishment - I'm so poud of you!!!

    And um, yes, I agree, I ate almost a whole pint of "if I had 1,000,000 flavours" yesterday......
