There are some REALLY exciting things going on right now if you’re in a deep, committed relationship with sugar like I am.
Exhibit One: Grown fresh from the rainbow/unicorn creations trend everywhere, this Braum’s Circus Animal Cookie Sundae is about the fattest and most wonderful thing I’ve ever eaten. Blood glucose levels be damned, I didn’t even feel guilty.
Luckily you can also by the ice cream flavor as a standalone in a 2 pint carton, and cut out a few hundred calories you’d get in the sundae with the same level of enjoyment.
After a little “research” I discovered there are oh, about a million super-cute, delicious looking recipes involving this trend:
Frosted Animal Cookie Cheesecake
Circus Animal Popcorn
Circus Animal Cookie Dough Truffle Bars
Circus Animal Cookie Truffles (AKA Cake Balls)
In the non-edible arena, how cute are these DIY ideas?
Circus Animal Throw Pillows
Circus Animal Christmas Tree Ornaments
Easy DIY Circus Animal Halloween Costume
I like to play a little dangerous game where I peruse Trulia.com. We are not looking to move any time soon, but every once in a while I just like to see what’s out there. This time it started when our neighbor’s house across the street went up for sale, and I wanted to see what it looked like on the inside so I started searching.
Which led me to a house SO VERY PERFECT FOR ME that I could openly weep at its unaffordability. ($399,000 for the record.)
How gorgeous is this?
The only thing it’s missing is a beautiful, simple, sleek mid-century style pool outside that wall full of windows.
And me, of course. 😉
Now would be a GREAT time to win the lottery. Coincidentally over the weekend we bought a Powerball ticket when it went over $400 million, and got 2 numbers and the Powerball number correct, so we won (a whopping $21!!!). Hahaha. So, you know, we’re basically almost there. Whimper.
