{Dirty Little Secret}

So, the husband has been in Afghanistan for almost a month, and well I couldn't wait. I'm letting you all know now so if you happen to pop in you won't be surprised. I'm having an affair. There I said it! Now you all know "my dirty little secret". And... well.... I'm sure many of you know these two, yes I said two..{wonderful} men as well.... Don't deny it, you know it's true. Let me introduce you to BEN & JERRY. So after I put the boys to bed I settle down into the couch and watch my TV shows or turn a movie on, and bring on the Ben & Jerry's. And boy - oh boy, they have been wonderful!

"Americone Dream"

'Imagine Whirled Peace" {two very appropriately named ice cream while the husband is over seas}
And who is the genius behind this??!! These smaller serving sizes are perfect!! And when all the dishes are dirty, they even come with there own little spoon.
I'm sure Ben & Jerry have made the rounds with the women... and they have won my heart. Sorry Sweetheart, I found a love while you are gone.

{Edited....The husband is now at home and safe. Ben and Jerry still frequent the house, just not as often. }
{Edited again.... I broke this post into two so some of the comments may not make sense if you want to read what many people in the comments are talking about... go here My new hobby}

Wow, you are a good shot! Maybe you should join the police force! That is a good idea to get a gun. You never know what could happen. I am still a little chicken myself, but I'll do it eventually, especially if I get a safe for it like you.

Telisse and Kade said...

Thats impressive. I think its a great idea for you, and how often you are alone. Just be sure to educate those boys of yours. Dont let curiosity get them. Just show them, educate them and then no worries.

Christy said...

Niiice. I like the ice cream bit. Can i buy a couple pints, we'll rent a chick flick and call it a party!

Alicia said...

You crack me up.. I love your "dirty little secret." That's cool about you getting a gun, you're a real "pistol packin' mama" now! Don't mess with you... except unless your name is "Ben" or "Jerry" right?!

The Scott Family said...

You are hilarious. I know those two men pretty well myself!

I LOVE shooting. It's not something I ever thought I would do but it is a ton of fun and makes me feel way tougher than I really am! ;)

Eliza said...

Personally...those men were no good to me just in my appearance. I do enjoy them while they are around though. As for the bulls-eye, who's to say you didn't draw the bulls-eye after you had already shot the box?? Just curious ;) Miss you tons...11 more days!!

Nikki said...

I have to say that I have to keep those two guys out of my house or my boys find out and still them from me. I have considered getting a concealed weapons permit. You did great at shooting.

JanMary said...

HUGE fan of those boys - Ben and Jerry!

It took a few years, but they finally made it to N Ireland. Before that, had only tasted it in US!

Happy Saturday Sharefest.

Dan River Mama said...

Wish I had the nerve to learn to shoot a gun. I am terrified of them. Great post! Stopping by from SITS

Dreamgirl said...

Love your little dirty secret. Have a few of them myself (mostly involving chocolate in some form or other...)

Now, remind me to never hike in your neck of the woods... immigrants... not so scary... woman with gun being able to hit bullseye - very scary indeed!

Happy Saturday Sharefest

Momma G.Love said...

I've often had an affair with both Ben and Jerry!

...stopping by from SITS...

Mommys Online Garage Sale said...

Happy Saturday Sharefest!

supah ~d said...

Sharefest stop in!

I'm a weinie about guns too.. but I admire you and that bullseye.. I'd be totally braggin all about town about that one. I love the drawn in target too...lol classic.

Just so you know...I 'm having an affair with Mr. Rice KRispy Treat.

He's lovely.

:)

Karen & Gerard Zemek said...

That still looks like quite a big serving to me! (I love your posts and added you to my blogrool!)

Congrats on your SITS day!

Elizabeth a.k.a. Type A Mommy said...

Ben & Jerry are definitely good friends of mine, too. I've never seen the smaller ones before! Those are perfect! Happy SITS day again to you!

Jessica Nunemaker said...

Mmm...ice cream.

That's the worst thing about winter. The ice cream parlor (that's within WALKING DISTANCE) is closed for the season. *sob*

Jen said...

I have this same love affair.

Christina said...

Mmm, yes. Ben and Jerry have both kept me company on many a lonely night.

Michelle said...

LOL...at least you have a friend.

Holly Noelle @ Domestic Dork said...

Americone Dream isn't my favorite flavor to eat, but it's my favorite for other reasons. I <3 Stephen Colbert!

kristin @ Meanbean said...

bahahaha....I hear those two definitely get around. They're the man-whores of the ice cream affairs...

Laura said...

I love the new smaller, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" packaging. It does make it easier when temptation hits.

2busy said...

Ooo, that is just sinful on so many levels. ;)

gina said...

Boy, those guys get AROUND! I love NY Super Fudge Chunk myself and my oldest two love Phish Food. My husband eats just about any kind- I just got him the aptly name Chubby Hubby. ;)

Angelia said...

Nummy, nummy!

Triplets Plus Two Momma said...

My husband has a man crash on B&J.
We LOVE it!

PB cup for me.
He loves Chubby Hubby and Rainforest Cruch...and so many others!

shortmama said...

That reminds me I need some ice cream from the grocery store this week! Ben and Jerrys is my fave and I havent had it in forever!

Heather said...

I've been dating them for years. I've even been to their "house" in Burlington, VT for the factory tour. It's a MUST SEE.

Happy SITS day.

Karen said...

First of all, thank you for your husbands service to our country.

I'm with I love Ben & jerrys too. As soon as the little man goes to sleep hotess chocolate cupcakes are devoured.

kallay said...

I'm single, but Ben & Jerry are definitely the most terrific dates I've ever had.

I love the Karmel Sutra or Half Baked. So delicious! So satisfying! So makes feel like less of a loser on a Friday night watching the ABC Family Movie! :D

Fallon said...

THAT MAKE THEM IN SMALLER SIZES NOW?! That's great! I hate the bigger ones, because I end up eating the whole thing, and the nutritional facts are way off; they say it's TWO servings when it's actually ONE, which means, damn.... that's a lot of calories.

Michelle said...

And this... this alone is why I go nowhere near the freezer case in the grocery store. :) And why I don't ever send my husband to the store.

Unknown Mami said...

Those boys get around.

Marie said...

Ben & Jerry at any size aren't allowed in my house, thankfully hubby doesn't leave too much. ;)
