1. I still can’t find my grooooove. Wah! I feel like I just spent a wild and crazy week in Vegas or something.

2. Many of you asked what my favorite meal/dessert was while at Disney. I have to say that the mac and cheese bar at the food blog forum reception was OUT OF THIS WORLD. It included lobster, short ribs, caramelized mushrooms, crab bread crumbs and like five other things I can’t even remember because my eyes rolled back in my head. So freaking good. As for actual Disney dessert, I’d probably have to go with the Dole Whip. #rollmehome

3. Oh and we totally went on the teacups, and let’s just say that trying to fit four adults inside is a biiiit tricky. We also spun around so fast that I definitely almost tossed my cookies. And then five minutes later we ate corn dog bites. What?

4. And one morning last week my brother ate the Vosges chocolate bacon bar for breakfast. Like… the whole thing. Real life.

5. On the plane ride home I felt so wretched from all of the junk I ingested that I swore I’d eat nothing but apples for three days. Since we all know it wouldn’t be vegetables. Then I got frozen yogurt.

6. I can’t even take how gorgeous our weather is. I want to eat it with a spoon.

7. I’m so boring today that I’m resorting to talking about the weather. Haaallllp me.

8. Whenever I come home from traveling, it sort of goes like this: I make a list about what I need to do. I sit around and ignore that list. Four days later I start to unpack. By “unpack” I mean remove things from my suitcase and put them in a very inconvenient spot (like on the stairs) where we trip over them for weeks. I complain that I have nothing to wear since I haven’t done laundry. I freak out mid shower because all of my toiletries are sitting on the coffee table in the living room. I finally do something about it six weeks later since the only other option is to get a divorce.

9. The How Sweet Facebook page makes me outrageously hungry. You guys post the BEST pictures. Can you come make me dinner tonight?

10. I could care less that St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone… I want to make this Guinness chocolate pie every day for the rest of my life. Hope you’re cool with that.

11. Time for a nap! Wake me up when I’m outta this funk.

    I need a nap today too. And possible some frozen yogurt. Thanks for my afternoon plan…

    …or possibly. Either one.

    What is unpacking? Don’t things just magically find their way back to where they belong? This might also explain why I’m missing a lot of my favorite items…

    My grandma ate an entire Vosges chocolate bacon bar AFTER Thanksgiving dinner this year. My mom brought it out so she could try a bite and she put down the whole thing. I’m still too stunned to comment on that.


    • Jessica — March 20th, 2012 @ 4:28 pm

      Dude I freaking love your grandma.

    Speaking of the chocolate bacon bar … I just read about chocolate-covered bacon on another blog. Why is it that chocolate-covered bacon sounds AMAZING to me and not to my husband? Why am I a stranger eater than he is? I’m pretty sure he thinks I’m nuts. I can’t even imagine what it’s going to be like when I’m pregnant. ;)


    • Jessica — March 20th, 2012 @ 4:31 pm

      Oh my husband would never TOUCH that bar.

    Sally @ sallys baking addiction — March 20, 2012 @ 4:36 pm

    Jessica- I just spent the weekend in vegas sooooo yeah I’m totally feeling you. i’m obviously still unpacked. And now all I want is frozen yogurt…!

    Angela — March 20, 2012 @ 4:36 pm

    That froyo looks delish! Mmm, this warm weather is making me crave some frozen treats.

    Your unpacking story made me chuckle because I’m the exact opposite! I can’t stand not having all of my things in order and always trip all over myself to unpack immediately when I get home.


  8. #
    Caroline @ Pink Basil — March 20, 2012 @ 4:39 pm

    Damn…you are making me crave some frozen yogurt right now. Also – unpacking is THE WORST. I love packing for some reason, probably because it means that excitement is about to happen, but I have left suitcases in my bedroom for over a month…true fact.


    • Mia — March 21st, 2012 @ 10:09 am

      Over a month? Pssh! That’s kiddie stuff. There’s an open suitcase in my living room whose exact origins I cannot identify. I went on a trip in January, but it was a short one and I think I only took an overnight bag and a backpack. So…yeah. Welcome to my life.

    Karen T. — March 20, 2012 @ 4:41 pm

    All this talk of this talk of bacon and chocolate is making me one jealous girl. I have to now write down everything I eat for my trainer and I’m pretty sure she’d shoot me if I wrote that down. Is it wrong that I want to lie to her and have it anyways?

    Samantha — March 20, 2012 @ 4:43 pm

    I have the perfect solution for that unpacking thing. You just let the stuff sit in your suitcase, and then as you’re trying to find stuff to wear, you just pull out whatever is in the suitcase. Then, after you wear it, it goes in the laundry. Where it’ll all eventually sit for a good week–but at least it’ll be sort of out of the way. It’s how I’ve been dealing with unpacking for a few years now.

    As for the weather thing…Here, in Michigan, it may only be March, but it’s freaking 80 degrees!!!!!!!! I’m lovin’ this warm weather!!

    Amy W — March 20, 2012 @ 5:03 pm

    I AM SO TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH DOLEWHIP. I had it for the first time in La Crosse, WI. Yes. La Crosse. Then again in Hawaii. And then at Disney. I want it all the time. I’m going to Disney in May. I’M SO EXCITED.

    Christy — March 20, 2012 @ 5:10 pm

    I’m currently staring at bags that need to be unpacked. 10 minutes ago? I moved my laptop bag from the dining room table to the top of my desk. This morning? My make up was on the coffee table. I was on the 2nd floor. I totally get you. Totally.

    Kylie — March 20, 2012 @ 5:11 pm

    I want a mac and cheese bar at my wedding. That classy, right?:)


    • erin — March 20th, 2012 @ 5:49 pm

      I had breakfast for dinner at mine. It’s your wedding – do whatever the heck you want!


      • Kylie — March 20th, 2012 @ 7:20 pm

        Great idea, I’m actually going to a wedding this December where they are serving breakfast for dinner and I can’t wait!

    honeywhatscooking — March 20, 2012 @ 5:23 pm

    i need a nap too. :-)
    i do exactly what you do after vacation, i take out my things and put them in another spot and do it another day. it’s such a long process. :-)

    Averie @ Averie Cooks — March 20, 2012 @ 5:40 pm

    I don’t even really like mac ‘n cheese…it’s “fine” but if I am going to eat worthless white carbs, I’d rather they be in white glazed donut format :) But lobster mac ‘n cheese, I change my tune!

    Glad you had a blast. I was so tempted to go, and then I didn’t know anyone who was going, and it looks like the whole world was there, but on the down low. If only I had known!

    erin — March 20, 2012 @ 5:47 pm

    I think my subconscious refuses to let me unpack any suitcase ever. I know I’ll end up using everything in the suitcase anyway, right? That’s why I packed it in the first place! So why take the enormous effort to put it all away? Mid-shower naked drippy run through the house? I consider it part of my “unpacking” ritual.

    I usually end up just dumping everything in the washing machine a few weeks after the trip and figure mayyyybe that will encourage me to start putting my life back together and force me to accept the fact that vacation is indeed over. Boo.

    Maybe you need a little Phillip Phillips YouTube action to get you out of your funk.

    MelissaNibbles — March 20, 2012 @ 6:22 pm

    I want to live in that mac & cheese bar.


  19. #
    Melissa Zeidan — March 20, 2012 @ 6:31 pm

    bahahahahaha!!!! Love your packing comments. I do THE SAME THING. And then I yell at my husband when he leaves like one thing out. That’s fair, right? :)


  20. #
    Karen — March 20, 2012 @ 6:44 pm

    I’ve never heard of this Dole Whip thing… so I googled it, and Wikipedia was so kinda as to help me out with what it is. Unfortuneately, I’m not going to Disney, but I’ll be in Hawaii in a couple of weeks so I’m going to keep my eye out. They look good!

    Mama Pea — March 20, 2012 @ 7:04 pm

    Frozen yogurt isn’t junk food. Duh.

    Jillian — March 20, 2012 @ 7:51 pm

    With regards to #2 –> oh man, that mac and cheese sounds unbelievably great. I want some! Also, I totally sympathize with #5, in fact so much so because I vowed basically the same thing on my way home from my parents’ house for spring break and I got froyo when I arrived at my apartment five hours later that day. It was delicious…


  23. #
    Cait's Plate — March 20, 2012 @ 8:36 pm

    Boo sorry you’re in a funk. I hate when that happens! Probably just the post-Disney blues. Hopefully a nice relaxing weekend will have you feeling better by next week :)

    Liz @ Tip Top Shape — March 20, 2012 @ 8:56 pm

    I always have the best intentions of eating healthy when I come back from trip. Usually never happens!

    I too am so tired today, I’ve been going to bed at 1 every night and waking up at the latest 6…what is going on, it’s the worst!

    Katie — March 21, 2012 @ 9:56 am

    Oh, I hear ya on the weather- it’s been in the 80s in MI for 3 days. Funniest thing ever about unpacking- sounds pretty familiar.. What kind of dole whip did you have? we were just in WDW in Feb and I didn’t love it- we had pineapple with the pineapple juice.


  42. #
    Kristin — March 21, 2012 @ 10:00 am
