A Bit About Me, March Edition

My birthday is February 23. On the 23rd of each month, I post a couple of random facts about myself. So for March, here 'goes!

37) My favorite flavor of ice cream is mocha almond fudge.

I first fell in love with the flavor at Baskin Robbins, and I used to always look for an ice cream shop when I traveled. Something about being away from home – even on business – made me think an ice cream treat was in order. Since our frozen yogurt shop opened about a year and a half ago, I haven’t indulged in ice cream very often. When I do, it’s usually courtesy of the local dairy farm, which is nothing short of amazing…and I feel better with the girls having “real” ice cream.

Hmmm…I might just have to sneak out to BR some time sans kiddos. I wouldn’t want to share my mocha almond fudge, anyway!

38) I was in the Girl Scouts until I was 12.

In the first grade, I joined our local Brownie troop. By the second grade, my mom became our troop leader, and I stuck with it through the sixth grade. I loved the camping, and the arts and crafts, and of course, the cookies. I recently reconnected with some of my old Girl Scout friends, on Facebook. There were a few of us online one evening, helping one of our fellow Scouts, now the mom of a Brownie (!!!), plan activities for this summer’s day camp. It didn’t take long before we were reciting old songs and reminiscing about campfires and skits.

And then I had to make some S’mores.

"On my honor, I will try..." Ha! I was scout till I graduated! I'm not ready to make the leap to being an adult scout yet but when the ladies are ready I think I might push them into it. I'm friends with the people who run our community so it would be like second nature to me. DH scoffs at the idea but I think I took away a lot from girl scouts.

I'm glad you are keeping this up... I was worried that it would end with your birthday last month. :)

And now, I want an ice cream. Thanks... ;)

maybe if i had done girl scouts i would be more "crafty"?? my mom did them growing up and wanted us to do them, but my dad said that they were "too catholic"! wtf? i was mostly relieved because i thought camping was scary! ha!! wonder how things would be different now! cream! i used to do taste comparisons at the place i scooped ice cream between the ice cream and froyo. it was a fun job. :)
