I heart Carvel

Yesterday we went to a thirft shop and a consignment shop looking for a few more items for fall. Curtis and I both were in need of some new cool weather clothes. We made out great. We got two pants for Curtis, 3 shirts for me, a stack of books, and a old fashioned cookie press like my Mom uses every year for Christmas cookies. All of this was only $8 total.

So, since the consignment shop is in the same plaza as Carvel, we just had to stop for a kid's sized cone. We shared the cone but in the end I finally decided that Curtis is big enough to hold his own ice cream cone. He had so much fun eating it and begged me over and over to put different color sprinkles on from the giant sprinkle tower they have. We ate way too much sugar yesterday so today I'm trying to cut back on it a bunch today. So far so good.

I still have one day to make a Martha recipe this week for the challenge. I'm hoping to pick up some butter today or tomorrow and try the shortbread recipe. I meant to go get some after the gym this morning and forgot. Jeez, one week in and I'm already slacking on my challenge.


PS - Blogger is being difficult so I'll post a pic later of Curtis eating his cone.

But if life feels good enough that you don't need to (or have time to) maintain your Martha Challenge, don't worry about it. No need to pressure yourself more than you already are .....

Oh -- and Carvel rocks :) It took me over a year of living here before I found one, but now I know where at least two are :)

(I miss Friendly's.)

I am probably in the minority but Carvel doesn't do much for me at all. I would take Dairy Queen over Carvel any day of the week. LOL! Both are less than 2 miles from my house.

Hey Heater I have a friendly's w/in walking distance to my house. I can't wait until I can take Curtis up there (he's no good in restaurant's right now).

Personally though, I'll take Carvel over Friendly's, Dairy Queen, Mr. Softee, Good Humor or any of the other ones any day.
