1. I bought chocolate today to bake. After I worked out, of course. Then I ate it instead. Now I need more. I’m not even going to tell you that it was the “pound plus” from Trader Joe’s.
2. Uh… can you make these appear in my closet? Yes, you. I’ll pay you in cookies. And love you forever. [But I may have to give you an IOU for the cookies. See #1.]
3. I tweeted this over the weekend, but it’s so disturbing that I must share again. My uncle found this bug outside.
HOLY CREEPTOWN. My skin is crawling.
4. I’m already craving pumpkin and fall-scented candles. I know that’s so annoying and cliche and I won’t mention another word about it for at least 3 or 4 minutes. In the meantime, I want these popsicles in my hands. Double fist style.
5. Despite the 8 billion ice cream pictures I threw in your face while on vacation last week, I actually don’t love ice cream. It’s not my drug of choice. But I love getting it on vacation when it’s freshly scooped every single day. And on our second to last day, I had this cinnamon crumb cake ice cream. I want to bathe in it. Join me?
Wait. That’s weird.
6. There is one incredible and amazing thing I miss about our honeymoon: KING SIZED BEDS. Has anyone ever got divorced over their queen sized bed? I may need your lawyer.
7. I bought this tiny perfume while on vacation.
As if I don’t smell like butter and sugar enough.

This reminds me of the one time I watched the Marriage Ref. This couple slept in a TWIN sized bed! The wife wanted a bigger bed because she slept on the outside and often times rolled off during the night, but the husband wouldn’t give in because he wanted to be close and cuddle all night. She was only asking to go up to a Full size, but he thought that would make it too hard to cuddle! Psycho! :)
That sounds like a complete nightmare.
We miss a king sied bed too – we always get into arguments while we’re sleeping. Fists fly.
As much as I waited and waited for Summer, I am also very excited for Fall! I got a king bed a few months ago, and can’t imagine ever going back – it’s like having my own bed to myself. That cinnamon ice cream looks amazing….but I love ANY ice cream. And that perfume sounds amazing!
Where is that perfume from? I would absolutely love that!
I’m craving fall lately too! Weird. Although not as scary as seeing CHRISTMAS magazines and catalogues in the grocery store today… Slooooowwww Down.
Getting a king sized bed was our number one priority after getting married. :-) Girl, make the investment.
Have you considered purchasing some bacon-flavored perfume for yourself or some cologne for the hubs? I feel like you both would appreciate it.
I’ve been known to eat the chocolate before making the recipe. Or Nutella with a spoon. It’s so good, almost better with a spoon.
My husband and I sleep in a double. With a 35lb dog.
That bug is ridiculous.
#2 is a Hickory Horned Devil, literally harmless. They like to make you think they’re dangerous with all those horns, but nope, they’re just big ole softies. =)
Ha! When my husband and I came back from our honeymoon king sized bed to our bed, we went out a week later and bought a king! :) its worth the money jessica!
When we got married, the queen was…okay. When we got the 60 pound boxer and I became regulated to a 2’x2′ corner of the of the queen….NOT OKAY. I just go to Ikea and lay on the model kings and cry.
i love your blog and have been reading for a bit but haven’t commented.. your recipes are always amazing looking and your writing makes me laugh :)
i ordered a tokyo milk perfume a year or 2 ago online called ‘dead sexy’ & its my faaaaav perfume now and i have tons of perfume! great brand i’m sure that one smells delish..
and p.s. i am a major space and cover hog.. apparantly. i do it in my sleep and my bf says i sleep-yell at him when he tries to take any covers but i have no recollection of doing it in the AM..hahaha poor guy
So totally agree with the king bed, We have a Cal-king, which is slightly bigger than a King, and my husband wants to down grade to our guest bed, which is a double… ummmm no thank you, the king is a must have! So glad you are back to your routine I was missing the regularity of your everyday adventures!

I hear you on pumpkins and fall scents. It was 100′ here yesterday and I heated up my oven to make chocolate-chip gingersnap cookies. My house smells like Christmas. And now I’m headed to the pool. Weird.
OK – caterpillar – creeepy but he sure is pretty in a weird way. Colorful.
Ice cream – I don’t know about bathing in it but I have vowed,
IF THERE ISN’T ICE CREAM IN HEAVEN I’M SERIOUSLY RENEGOTIATING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF MY DEATH!
Queen size bed. Divorce no – but I did threaten to make Mr. Sweet Butter sleep on the floor when we moved if we didn’t upgrade to a King. He’s like Mr How Sweet – Tall and big – really big! I need my room.
Thanks for Tuesdays things Jess.
I thought it was mandatory to buy a king once you got married! I love that we each have our own space and rarely cross over to others side. Sleeping in your own space without your spouse invading is the key to a happy marraige! :)
I love this post (although not that wierd bug-gross!)! I agree with you about ice cream…it’s not my drug of choice, either. That cinnamon crumb cake ice cream does look amazing, though!
King size bed? A must have essential for a happy marriage! You don’t even know the other person is there, except when the other person sleeps on his back and then proceeds to snore so loud he sounds like he is sawing logs with a chainsaw. Then you know he is there because you have to roll him over onto his side so he will stop snoring. You will know he is there because you will repeat this several more times during the night. Not that my husband does that or anything! ;-)
that bug is kind of creepy but also kind of cool. and might I say omg i cannot wear perfume or lotion that smells like food.. it makes me hungry all day long. Right now I’m trying to avoid doughnuts.. help! :)
I agree with number 4!! Bring on the fall :)
I agree with number 4. I’m in LOVE with fall flavors/scents… In fact, I believe I’m going to make those ice cream bars tonight even though its sunny and 90 degrees. Oh well, I’ll wear a fall apron or something to make it seem appropriate.
ALSO, i know you’re from around Pittsburgh, so you might have Rutters, but either way… Pumpkin Spice Cappuccinos are probably the greatest gift of fall. Or if you have Turkey Hill… Half pumpkin spice cap/half pumpkin spice coffee. I think I just may have cried from excitement a little.
Ohhh, where did you get this purfume? I tried Sephore-no luck! I must have it!!
Try googling Tokyo Milk!
I thought we were so alike when you, I’ve been known to chow on the pound plus from TJ and all. Then I hear you don’t like ice cream! For shame! Anyway, another blog that I read posted this recently, I must have it soon! http://www.whatsgoodattraderjoes.com/2011/08/trader-joes-lemon-triple-ginger-snap.html
Thought you needed to know.
That doesn’t make sense… delete delete! Keep the link though :-)
Ice cream is definitely my drug of choice. That flavor looks fantastic!
Major Creeptown! Are those colors right??
Yes on number 4!!! I can’t wait for the fall. Everything about it is awesome. :-)
That is the creepiest bug! I’m afraid the only thing I would do with those very HIGH shoes is squash the bug….I don’t want to ruin my flip-flops!
That bug? OY!
That Ice Cream??? Where, oh where, oh WHERE did you get that…since I’m pretty sure you were in Michigan vacationing, I have a chance of getting it since I live here…it looks amazing! Please share the local maker of that treat :)
we have Kilwins in our downtown…happy.day. (thanks :))!
OH, and seriously….you cannot stay married without a King Size bed…best purchase we ever made as a couple!!
Those shoes remind me of Bjork’s swan dress. But in a good way.
I bought the same perfume a few months ago. I LOVE it!
The fiance and I just bought a king size bed….. we’re small people. Yet he takes up so much room!
