Being home from vacation isn’t that bad.

It’s nice not to be lubed up with sunscreen and covered in a layer of sand.

Instead I’ve traded that for a lovely layer of peeling skin. Especially on my scalp. It looks really hot.

Mr. How Sweet bought filet and sweet potatoes to make me dinner last night… then we fell asleep at 7pm.

So we’re eating the filet tonight. Or tomorrow.

Mainly because I just ruined my appetite with a gooey one of these.

I like being back in the kitchen.

I made something today so delicious that I can’t stop eating it. Soon enough I will need to be removed from this house by crane.

I have a realllllly sore throat. But you are all super smart and gave me suggestions of what to do on Facebook.

The only suggestion I will probably listen to is to have a milkshake. It’s national vanilla milkshake day!

Is there anything better than sleeping in your own bed? I think not.

Even when you sleep next to a jet engine snorer.

Today is the first day in 6 days I didn’t have an ice cream cone with sprinkles.

Maybe that’s why my throat hurts.

Yep. That’s definitely it.

Must.get.ice.cream.

Bye!

    The sprinkles ice cream has got to be the reason for the throat issue. Problem solved!

    I think a vanilla milkshake will cure your throat in no time.

    Whiskey helps with sore throats too. And a Bailey’s milkshake is close enough to vanilla in my book.

    Welcome back! I thought I was the only one whose scalp burned and peeled. Isn’t it awful? So embarassing!

    Also, I have that same napkin. Hooray for Pier 1!

    Feel better!

    I always loathe coming back from vacation – I never want it to end. I think drinking milkshakes would probably easy my transition. :-) Glad you’re back!

    Feel better!!!!!!

    I am just getting over a 10+ day cold that started out with the most horrific sore throat ever. And I got it just shortly after we came home from Aruba. I swear, it’s the post-travel sickness curse!

    Take care of yourself with extra milkshakes and cookies :)

    Feel better soon! Maybe it was too much air conditioner. My hubby just got back from a trip and he also isn’t feeling so hot. We must be on the same page, cause my blog post has the same title as yours, and I had made a whole load of walnut choc chip cookies and yep, stuffed my face :)
    So glad, I found your blog!

    Frozen yogurt always helps too. I had some when I got my wisdom teeth out and it eased the pain better than heavy doses of oxycodeine :)

    Vacations are wonderful but it’s always nice to be home. I find I miss my kitchen and cooking more than anything else when I’m away. Welcome home!

    Welcome back. One good thing for us about you returning from vacation is that we no longer have to look at pictures of gorgeous sunsets, ice cream cones, and you being all relaxed and hating our work-filled days :) Envy, you are cruel.
