I love ice cream. There are several foods I can call my favorite, and ice cream is absolutely, without any doubt one of them. I am also convinced my love for ice cream is enhanced by genetics…my mom loves ice cream, and her mom loves ice cream. All three of us have an ice cream problem, and we cannot get enough. Without physically making sure we stop ourselves, we could certainly polish off a half a gallon without thinking twice.
With that being said…I almost never keep ice cream in my freezer. I would pick up the ice cream before I would make my dinner. Then I have a good chance of not eating dinner because I am full from ice cream. I’m sure you can see that I should not have ice cream in my house. Occasionally I will buy a pint of ice cream, and force myself to not eat the whole thing (that’s hard). I recently came across the Portion Control Ice Cream Scoop which portions out half a serving of ice cream for you. This is a great idea! I wonder how many times I would go back and scoop out “just one more half portion” with that scoop. It’s best for me to stick to going out for an ice cream treat when I am really craving it. I do have one of those newly-popular frozen yogurt places right up the street from my apartment. And that is pretty cool because you serve yourself yogurt and put toppings on. The problem is, it really tastes like yogurt (not ice cream) and I am not big on the toppings except for rainbow jimmies (or for those of you who are anti “jimmie” – sprinkles), and if I am up for it, mini Reese’s Pieces (or as I call them “Reese’s Peeeecies”). So the yogurt thing is sometimes good enough, but not as satisfying as ice cream itself.
About 2 weeks ago my friend and I went to the grocery store together. He bought two pints of ice cream. In my house, those pints would have been long gone! Would you believe that he still has one whole pint left in his freezer? I am fairly certain he finished the one pint in one sitting (even though he didn’t admit it out loud), but he hasn’t even touched the other one. I couldn’t believe it. I told him he has some awesome will power. I’m not sure I could ever let that happen unless, for some unknowing reason, I actually forgot the ice cream was there. I wish I could do that. It would be nice to be able to keep some ice cream in my freezer just for the times when I could really use a scoop.
What’s your weakness? Are you able to keep you food weakness in your house without eating it all up way too quickly?
I mentioned to you before that I do not have an iPhone. I have a plain old regular touch screen cell phone. I think it may have some cool features, but I basically use it to make phone calls and send text messages. Because of my basic phone needs, I do not have Apps on my phone, but I do know a little bit about them, and I know there are so many Apps out there that anyone with a phone can find at least one App to love. Today, I would like to talk about what seems to be one of the most popular Apps out there right now: Angry Birds.
I first read about Angry Birds on a blog a while ago, and I didn’t think anything of it. Then, I came across a posting somewhere that said soon there will be an Angry Birds board game…and apparently this is a very big deal. So I did a little more internet surfing to find out more about how people really feel about Angry Birds. It’s a game that is taking over the world of Apps. Everyone who plays doesn’t want to stop. My friend told me her mom will play on her iPad and if the iPad battery dies, she will take over her son’s! Did you know you can even buy Angry Birds stuffed animals? I am so glad I haven’t played this game because I know I would be part of this Angry Birds following. However, from what I hear, the coming-soon, Angry Birds Board game, is said to be a modern day Mouse Trap. Do you remember Mouse Trap? That was a fun game. And since so many people love playing Angry Birds on their phones, it must be fun to play as a board game with other people. I’d like to give it a try…what about you?
It’s interesting to see how things cycle. When I was younger, we played cards and board games. I used to love Candyland. But I didn’t really love playing Candyland. I would say I wanted to play, open the box, steal the princess card and game over! And Hungry Hungry Hippos will always be a classic. But then as we got older, we played pool, and everyone wanted a Fold Up Pool Table in their basement. And then, when we got even older we went back to cards for gambling, which you can now play electronically with a Touchscreen Video Poker Game. And now, it seems board games are back “in” and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Board games and quiz games are so much fun; I hope it never goes out of style again!
What are some of your favorite games today to play?
Finding the perfect toy for our dogs is sometimes tricky. We want to make sure they have the best toy to play with that is fun for them, and durable enough that we don’t have to keep re-purchasing the same toy several times.

Crazy Critters are dog toys that are stuffing free. It is a great toy for any dog of any size. The Crazy Critters all have a squeaker in the head and a squeaker in the tail. Every Crazy Critter will lay flat so all dogs can easily pick them up to play. Since each Crazy Critter has no stuffing inside, your dog can play and tug for hours and you do not need to worry about the toy falling apart and making a mess.
Crazy Critter is the new dog toy that is a winner for everyone. Dogs will love to play with their new squeaky toy, and you will love to give your dog a great toy without having to worry about cleaning it up. Have your dog try out any of the new Crazy Critters and let us know what you think!
I was talking to a friend who told me that his bedroom at night was cold because the window was letting cold air from the outside in. My dad was having a similar problem in his laundry room where the door to the garage was letting cold air into the laundry room. Aside from the fact that the cold air coming in makes the room cold (especially when the temperature is below 30 degrees) and uncomfortable, the energy cost to continuously turn up the heat to compensate for the cold air is really high! A simple solution to this problem is a simple product called the Twin Draft Guard.
The Twin Draft Guard is the perfect item to help save money in the long run. Just slide the Twin Draft Guard right under the door or window with the draft and that’s it! The Twin Draft Guard will keep the warm air in and the cold winter air outside where it belongs.
Make sure you keep your house warm this winter with the Twin Draft Guard. The Twin Draft Guard will not only save you from being cold, but it will save you money too!
