Cool Whip Makes Everything Better

We had a tiny visitor at our house today. My friend and her 8-month-old daughter came over to play. We ripped up an old magazine, crawled around the living room and kitchen, and played with the Nintendo Wii. I will let you guess which activities the 8-month-old instigated and which activity caused her to start screaming because her mom was busy swinging a Wii-mote around. Apparently I am not an adequate substitute attention-giver. H and I also discovered that our house is really not baby-proofed for a crawler, not that we thought it was. No injuries occurred though, so really, what more could you want.

H and I also went to the Mall of America today, and I bought this dress (although mine is a petite size since I am so freaking short) for my brother-in-law's wedding this summer. It is so cute, and I can wear it to work too. I am pathetically pleased by this purchase.

I have been in a bad mood for the past few weeks, but H has been pitching in by doing a lot of cleaning around the house and being all-around hilarious. There are some people I've met who just seem so serious all the time; I don't know how they survive. I need at least a little laughter every day to get by. [/end lame serious paragraph about having a sense of humor]

Do you know what else helps me get by? Freaking Samoa flavored ice cream. How did I live without it? Also, coffee with Cool Whip instead of cream and sugar. Seriously. It is terrific.

I so do not need to read a post about Cool Whip when I am on a diet and about to go to bed (hungry).

But I did read it, and I am coveting your new dress. It's gorgeous!!

That dress is cute. I actually just ordered a new pair of black slacks for MY brother-in-law's wedding this summer. Since it's at an outdoor venue, I'm guessing I'll be running around a bit with my son between the wedding and reception, and I'll be more comfy in pants.

I had an dress with the high waist like that one time, and I called it my "pregnant dress" (years before I was pregnant). It always made me look pregnant. Lucky you having a body type that can get away with that dress! ;)

New clothes and ice cream. Does it get any better than than?

That dress is adorable. I love the peacock blue. Also, I think I have to try this Samoa ice cream people keep raving about. Right after I finish the container of "Take the Cake," which I also bought because people on the Internet told me to. I am so impressionable like that.

That dress is adorable.

And you say Samoa flavored ice cream? Where? I've never seen it before and it's my absolute favorite flavor girl scout cookie!

cool whip in coffee. a new one to me... and I'm going to TAKE YOUR WORD for it. no need to prove you wrong.

don't call me MA'AM said...

My mom always puts ice cream in her coffee in the absence of coffee mate and sugar... so Cool Whip must be just as good, if not better. Since you are the Cool Whip connoisseur, I must know... do you prefer regular Cool Whip or French Vanilla?

Cute dress! That will look so fun on you!

Eeek... I think I am becoming that serious person of whom you speak.
