1. It seriously amazes me how rainbow sprinkles completely change a boring vanilla cone. Is it all in my head? A mental thing? It’s real.

2. I have not been able to get this cheesy dish out of my head all week.

3. Walk the Line was on Sunday night, therefore reminding me why it’s the BEST MOVIE IN THE UNIVERSE.

4. Have you ever had a pair of pants that are your most favorite pants ever and you don’t put them in the dryer when you do laundry and then one time when you’re not paying attention you accidentally throw them in only to find out later when folding laundry that you may need to eat 10 less cookies just to fit into them? Wah. Me either.

5. Last week I somehow discovered that Connie Britton was making the rounds on late night shows (like Jimmy Kimmel) and ended up DVRing every single one and watching them multiple times. Still haven’t deleted them either. As if I couldn’t adore her more! And her hair… oomph. ughhhhh Nashville please don’t evereverever end. Or take a break.

6. Cannot get enough of this song, along with Sheryl Crow’s utter hotness. I hope I look half that good at 51. We talk about this (this being her gorgeousness) in our house at least once a week and I have my husband to than for blasting that song on repeat over the last few weeks.

7. I’m most excited about Memorial Day for the fact that I have an excuse to eat more than one hot dog in a sitting. Don’t see #4.

8. I’m not a huge chocolate + raspberry fan but I freak out over strawberry + chocolate and I’m currently really into loaves (loafs?) so this… right up my alley.

9. This is the 100th Tuesday Things and well, I just have to say that I really love you a lot. Forever evah.

    I was literally just that about Nashville. I don’t want to live this summer without it.

    Wow, 100?!? That’s amazing!

    I don’t even like the taste THAT much, but am obsessed with strawberry ice cream with rainbow sprinkles JUST BECAUSE IT’S SO PRETTY!!!

    The only way I could regret the dipped cone I had on Saturday was by seeing this photo! Ah well, there’s always next weekend for sprinkles – I’m goin’ for it!

    You ALWAYS stoke my craving for vanilla soft serve with rainbow sprinkles (not “jimmies” because that sounds sort of porn-y, amIright?). And I never satisfy it, because ice cream is meant for eating with other people and my fiance is a lactard. Will you be my substitute ice cream date? We can totally just FaceTime it.


    • Shelly — May 21st, 2013 @ 3:21 pm

      Lactard, my new favorite word :)!

    Yes re: the pants. Thankfully they stretch out for me again, after a few awkward hours when I first put them on :-)

    DQ is the best thing about Summer! Honestly, I would be there every day if time aloud. Who cares about all the sugar + calories? It’s Summer (not here, no here it is snowing)!! Oh and you and solely you have turned me into sprinkle loving freak. I now want them on everything. I actually put them in a bowl of cereal the other day!

    Memorial day is all about BBQ for me! I can not wait! Plus, there is always loods of watermelon, blueberries and strawberries which I can not get enough of. Plus, more ice cream. I love ice cream!

    Happy 100th Tuesday Things!

    Melissa @ Treats With a Twist — May 21, 2013 @ 2:31 pm

    Seriously, love sprinkles! AND Tuesday Things.
    I put sprinkles on everything. Think oats and yogurt need a little more happiness? Me too. Sprinkles!
    Connie Britton’s hair? LOVE!! My mom has red hair like that and I used to dye mine in to match hers.
    And can I throw in there Shakira’s hair?? I don’t know if you watch The Voice, but every time they show Shakira, I have to tell my fiance how badly I wish I looked like her!! She’s so adorable, you could just squeeze her!

    I just bought rainbow sprinkles at the store yesterday. It was the right call. Always.

    Rainbow sprinkles can do no wrong! I just had some yesterday on top of some treats! Sprinkles make everything just that much better!

    I’ve totally done the pants thing with sweaters. It sucks when they’re part wool and you literally cannot wear them again!

    Lindsay @ The Live-In Kitchen — May 21, 2013 @ 3:48 pm

    Ok this is weird so stay with me… My husband is a skinny jeans guy and demands that they fit him just right. He always buys his jeans so they fit perfectly when they are worn over and over and stretched out a bit. Instead of washing them he puts them in the freezer to kill the bacteria that would cause odor. They stay the same size and he never needs to dry them. As long as you don’t drop that ice cream cone on them you’re golden!

    Krystal — May 21, 2013 @ 4:39 pm

    #4 is the worst ever! Argh.
    And sprinkles makes everything fun, festive, and fantastic! :D

    Is it weird that your picture of the DQ cone looks so delish that I can practically smell it? haha

    Rachel S — May 21, 2013 @ 10:18 pm

    Are the pants denim? If so, you might be able to save them. Wash them again. Then, while they are wet, put them on and do a few squats in them. Take them off and tug on the legs to stretch a little if length is an issue. The material is a lot more pliable when wet. Then let them airdry. Hope it works for you!

    Kristen@Slender Kitchen — May 21, 2013 @ 11:51 pm

    Happy 100th Tuesday Things!! It is honestly one of my favorite posts of the week on your blog. Love having a look into your life and what’s on your mind. Connie Britton was incredible on each and every late night show. I’m even more obsessed.

    Leslie — May 22, 2013 @ 6:05 am

    Cheese grits are the best! I forced my wedding venue to serve cajun shrimp and grits because its my favorite food. Well, one of my favorite foods at least. There’s a few things on that list :)

    Liz — May 22, 2013 @ 6:26 am

    Sprinkles do make the vanilla cones that much better – and prettier :)

    Yay for 100 Tuesday Things! Hope to read at least 100 more – always love your posts.

    Speaking of cheezy dishes you can’t get out of your head, I’ve been gobbling my current cheese stash so i can get some cheddar for your beer and queso dip. So many cheeses and so little time. Love your Tuesday Things. Looking forward to 100 more.

    I may or may not have squealed and clapped when I caught “Walk the Line” on Sunday during the first five minutes. I turned to my husband and said, “Whatever our plans were for the evening…. they have changed.”

    Michelle @ Brown Eyed Baker — May 22, 2013 @ 8:35 am

    Walk the Line is the best movie, ever. I’ve watched it umpteen times! Loooooooove it! Also, ugh, the dryer. I hate my wardrobe right now.

    I am OBSESSED with everything Connie and Nashville. I dont want it to be the season finale yet!! I WANT MORE! Haha…

    And I agree with the rainbow sprinkles. I will eat just about anything, as long as it has sprinkles. They just make me HAPPY!

    Congrats, on 100 “Tuesday Things” I never thought I would look forward to Tuesdays more until you started these! :)

    Spinkles make everything taste better :) I can relate to the pants, you have to be very careful with that dryer

    I love Walk the Line, too. I like how it shows the frailty of man – such good people with terrible flaws like all of us. And the music is so great. I have recently found your blog and am really enjoying it. You always make me smile, and sometimes laugh out loud. Thank you from one of your invisible friends.
