A Sweet Discovery

I had a fun date with myself today. You'll soon understand why I didn't drag my fortunate husband along. Besides, one of us has to work! Too bad it has to be him, since he missed a wonderfully lovely date with me! I began my afternoon by getting a tiny roast beef sandwich and an even tinier french fry at Arby's. Back in the day, Arby's was one of my favorite fast food establishments. I have since traveled the world and had my eyes open to the wonders and variety of fast food. I didn't exactly settle today, but it wasn't exactly Cafe Rio, either! As I was staring off into space from the Arby's dining room (I often stare off into space during dates with me...the conversation can really lag and get awkward), I noticed a sign across the parking lot for the frozen yogurt shop, Yodipity.

Several months ago, my Utah Sister emailed me a link to a recently-opened yogurt store not too far from my house. We planned to visit it for ourselves to see if it was as good as everyone said. However, when the whole family was in town this past April, we just didn't have time to get to Mesa Riverview for some frozen yogurt. Seeing the sign today reminded me of my resolute promise to my sister...I WILL try Yodipity, if it's the last thing I do! Luckily, I survived. And it was delightful! It was pretty hard to choose from their selection of flavors, but I ultimately fell back on my "Old Faithful" recipe of mint ice cream, brownie chunks, and caramel sauce. It tasted even better...perhaps because of the low-calorie sign above the yogurt dispensers? Charloe, come visit me so we can go back to Yodipity. You will love it. See? All you needed was a little incentive to come enjoy the heat! It was only 112 degrees today. Believe me, frozen yogurt was all but necessary.

And now, the true reason why my husband was shunned from attending this date: I am a fan of the Twilight Saga, while John is not. Therefore, I went to the movie alone, swooning and smiling and wiping tears at all the appropriate times without worrying about John being in constant pain and misery for two hours and four minutes. The movies just keep getting better and better, and this one was completely enjoyable. The books, as always, are best. I am a devoted member of Team Edward, in case that needs to be stated. Those who aren't will come around eventually.


  1. Yodipity looks scrumdittilyumptious! (name that movie!) Wish you could have been there to see Eclipse too! Maybe we can plan to get together for Breaking Dawn?

  2. I love frozen yogurt and they have the best new places now! We're hittin' the 100 teens here too and it is pretty warm. I haven't seen the movie yet because I'm holding out to watch it with my sisters, but I do have to say that I'm Team Jacob. Have been the entire time. I don't see myself coming around to Edward anytime soon. :)

  3. Well you have done it again...i am HUNGERY!! HAHA I have not seen the movie yet. I got invited to go with your mom and sister the other day but since you were not going to be there I chose not to go :) Alycen and I invited ourselves to Sedona, I hope you dont mind. Your mom said if we wanted to come all we had to bring was a we will be there!!! I hope that you can squeeze us into your PERFECT schedule! You sure as great with planning things. You should be a wedding planner, or do you like all the plane flying stuff??? Well I miss you like crazy, but will see you soon in Sedona ;)


Make my day. I love comments!
