so months ago i blogged about jeni's ice cream
and that i wanted aaron to take me on a date.
i KINDA blogged about it
and then later
that involved jeni's ice cream.
and i didn't reeeeaaaallly blog about it then
because i was in the beginning of my "blogger depression"
where i just posted photos for you guys for awhile
until i got back into my mojo.
well, obvs my mojo is starting to come back
because OBVS i'm posting more and more things
OKAY WELL ANYWAY!!
so i'm a die-hard ice cream racist.
i love the ice cream that is the only ice cream i know
and i rarely love any other kinds
simply because they are different
and not what i'm used to.
I LOVE THE DAIRY QUEEN ICE CREAM IN FARMERSVILLE
i love bluebell ice cream.
which is, honestly, super super tasty.
but only available in texas.
i always justify the "i-only-like-farmersville's-dairy-queen-ice-cream"
that all other dairy queen's along the highways
just don't have that
second-hand smoke and grease and unibrow sweat in them
that the farmersville dq has.
and the bluebell?
ALL THAT CHANGED WHEN I HAD JENI'S ICE CREAM.
because, my friends,
jeni's ice cream is much more than superb.
it is creamy.
it is decadent.
it is varied, and complex, and unassuming, and light, and pure.
it speaks to the informed woman inside of me
coos to her
whispers in her ear.
it delights her.
so i love jeni's ice cream.
and i was all "HEY FRIENDS GO EAT THIS ICE CREAM"
and really, suddenly, one of them totally did.
because my friend Lara is a woman who takes things one step further
she texted me and was all
you can buy jeni's ice cream at all ohio whole foods stores"
and i went AAAAAAUUUGGGGHHH I'M BUYING SOME RIGHT NOW.
and then i did.
pretty much right away.
because i so happened to be in the car
on my way to buy groceries.
and because i was so proud of my exceptional work weekend
where i worked so freaking hard
and because i was so proud of aaron painting the ceiling and making such exceptional headway on the house
and because i was so in love with myself for feeling good about my hard work
and because i was so in love with aaron for working hard on the house
i made a detour
and bought some
now, i'm not gonna mention how much it costs to buy these babies in store
it's not as expensive as buying them online
but i will tell you it is definitely an
kind of purchase
(even though jeni's has me totally, completely hooked and all i want to do is eat through every single one of their flavors forever.)
it was completely PRICEY
so much to the point that i almost didn't buy them getting there,
but realized i didn't want to detour all the way out there for NUTHIN
and got 'em.
please let me say
that they were probably worth it.
that ice cream is beyond delightful.
i picked up salty caramel (for aaron)
and ugandan vanilla bean (for me)
and ate them both.
and even though aaron was all
no i don't want any i'm happy already
i put extra in my bowl when i made it
because i knew he was going to eat some
as soon as he had a teensy weensy bite.
and he did.
and we were both happy as clams not being cooked.
we have a post!
