Cold Stone anyone???

Miles won't sleep. He is either:
a) teething
b) sick
c) both a and b
d) neither
e) likes to party all night
I have been going on auto-pilot these last few days. Not. Fun. At. All. Stressed to the max! The bad news is I am a total stress eater. The good news is I have not given in! Even when my loving husband called me tonight on the way home from running errands ( buying broccoli, chicken and turkey bacon). The conversation went something as follows.
Matt: Hey Marcia...I'm not trying to sabotage you or anything, but I am near Cold Stone..do you want me to stop?!!?!?
Me: NO!!!
Matt: Ok, bye. Just thought I would check.
This was a pretty big step for me. A month ago, I would have been all over that!! If you don't know..Cold Stone Creamery is just the best ice cream ever invented! Take a peek: www.coldstonecreamery.com/index.html
They do have some "healthier indulgences" options to choose from, including a Sinless Sans Fat-non fat no sugar added ice ceam ( um, no thanks!). If I am going to eat ice cream give me the real deal please!! If you ever get a chance to go there, I highly recommend it..in moderation of course!!
My 4 year old is learning what a "cheat" meal is but does not really like the word cheat. She wants to call our next cheat meal a fun meal instead--they sure do learn fast at this age! She's still a tad confused on why her cheat still has to include a side a broccoli though. Hmmmm, how to explain that one.......

Oh man, you know I love me some Coldstone too & think I'll treat myself on my pampering day this weekend. I like Amara's idea of the "fun meal" instead of a cheat. Kevin actually calls it a splurge..sounds better too!

Nice job resisting girl!
