Hello and Good-Bye to Cotton Candy

 Last Fall, I had a friend do a Facebook post about Cotton Candy Grapes.  I rushed to the grocery to buy a bag.  They really do taste just like cotton candy!  I have been checking to see if we had them in our area.  They got them in this week and I was there to get my bag.  Very expensive, but worth it!
I stopped by Sonic and got a cotton candy slush.  (Probably the only grown woman who has EVER ordered one!)  I always get cotton candy slushes or snowcones.  Sweet girl brings out my slush and says, "You know this our last week for cotton candy slush?"  No, I didn't know.  I know I wilted as she spoke.  I told her that I was not surprised because everything I love gets taken away.  She said she was so sorry and I rambled on about how it was not just here but all places.  I am sure she went back in the Sonic and told her co-workers there was a lady out there that needed counseling.

Because I read your blog and Kelly's blog, I think of you every time this happens to me...which is often. You are not alone! We just must have very selective taste... :-)

Have you ever had a grapple?! They are amazing! An apple that smells and tastes just like grapes! Kind of expensive, but worth it for an occasional treat!

That's a real bummer about cotton candy slushies! You aren't the only grown woman to order them; it's my absolute favorite. :)

I'm now craving cotton candy grapes. For real, I didn't know there was such a thing. Sounds amazing :)

Too funny, I love it, but am sorry another of your favorites is getting yanked away from you. Thanks for the laugh!

Oh those grapes are SOOO delicious. I went through so many packages of those last summer and I have been checking our store, and haven't seen them yet. I'll be heartbroken (my bank account will be happy) if they don't come back this year!!!!

I almost bought those grapes last week at Fresh Market but couldn't bring myself to pay that much for grapes! We haven't had them so I wasn't sure if we'd like them. Now I want to try some! :)

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
