Happy birthday, Mom!

Tonight we celebrated my Mom's birthday! Her actual birthday was Tuesday, but she and Dad had just returned from the NAMM show in Los Angeles, and they were exhausted. So we saved the fun for Friday night! We gathered at my house for some green chicken chili with all the toppings. Mer brought a delicious salad!


Happy birthday, Mom!

Ben entertained us with old school video games!

So here's a secret not everyone knows about. You might want to sit down. Whitt's Frozen Custard will make custom ice cream cakes. Whitt's Frozen Custard will make custom ice cream cakes!!!!! My family has been pretty much devastated since Larry's Dawg House quit selling ice cream cakes a few years ago. I mean, Dairy Queen ice cream cakes are fine. They're even delicious, I guess! But Larry's were SO MUCH BETTER. They were the BEST! And we loved getting them for birthdays! And then, they stopped. And we were sad. But then we discovered that Whitt's also makes special ice cream cakes. You get to choose two flavors (chocolate, vanilla, and/or flavor of the day), PLUS whatever fillings you want for the center! Anything on the menu, but usually at least one syrupy thing to hold it together (peanut butter, caramel, fudge, etc.). Our cake was a layer of vanilla, and a layer of the flavor of the week -- chocolate sea salt caramel! For the inside we went traditional -- fudge and oreo cookies.

Make a wish!

This ice cream cake was A M A Z I N G. We were trying to remember if Larry's was this good? It probably was. But it's been so long we would really need a side by side taste test comparison to know for sure. But the bottom line is that Whitt's is at least as good as Larry's!!! We're pretty stoked to have an amazing ice cream cake back in our lives!

Happy birthday, Mom!
