I think I need help. After our date tonig, Matt and I stopped at the store to get dessert. We stopped at HEB because there were a few things we needed. We decided on ice cream, specifically, the quintessential fall flavor, Blue Bell Spiced Pumpkin Pecan. They were out so I ran into Kroger and made my way over to the ice cream section. I searched and searched, happy to note hat it was on sale, but dismayed that there were no orange cartons of ice cream to be found. 

I have to admit. 

Tears began springing to my eyes. It wasn't that I felt I had to have it tonight. It was that I couldn't imagine not having it again for the season. I didn't want my last scoop to be my last scoop. I needed closure with my ice cream before we were separated for the next ten months. I held my breath and walked to her end cap, hoping for a display. I was greeted with three smiling (at least in my head) cartons of ice cream. I happily grabbed two of them and made my way to the front of the store. If I had any more room in my freezers, I would have bought all three. 

I need help. You aren't supposed to cry over seasonal ice cream. It just really is that good. I think I might have an extra big bowl tonight!

They only say there is no use crying over spilled milk. Crying over ice cream is totally acceptable ;-)

I'd never had it, so at Walmart yesterday I stopped by and our freezer case was full, plus they were on sale. I went ahead and picked one up to see what all the fuss was about. It was delicious!!!
