Scoop Ahead Ice Cream

Scoop Ahead Ice Cream

You know what I hate? When people use initials instead of just typing out the word. Like when my Mother and Father-in-law are suddenly MIL and FIL and I am the DIL. That's not an attractive name for anyone. Also when people refer to me as "K" instead of Krysta. Is it really that hard to type out my name?  Kel will read this (if she even reads this blog anymore- this will be the true test to our friendship) and think it's hilarious and only refer to me as "K" from here on out just to irritate me because thats what she does and has done every time I complain about this. And, you know what? It's not funny Kel. Not funny AT ALL. I'm about to flip a shiz-nit over this. I also hate when people say they're going to do something and don't do it. Or, when people take to Facebook and ask for medical advice after they have admitted they pretty much can't breathe and have been coughing severely for four weeks, and everyone urges them to go to the ER, but they don't even take anyone's advice because they don't really believe they are in that big of trouble, but then later find out they have actually cracked a rib. Yeah, Kel. I'm not talking about you AT ALL. You have permission to call me "K" for two weeks now. But after that I'm cutting it off, you hear me?

Turns out I hate a lot of things. Including scooping ice cream. That was a natural segway, right? I didn't even plan that, it's just the truth. Scooping ice cream is like being asked to cut the cake at a party. People freeze up and get all weird about it. Listen, I understand. It's intimidating stuff. Tell me this whole idea of scooping the ice cream ahead of time isn't ingenious? I saw it on Pinterest. Then, I tried it when I had to serve ice cream sundaes to 13 people; because scooping it out of the carton in front of that many people? No one wants that job. Then I  saw it done a week later at Danielle's house for Annabelle's birthday party. Danielle showed off her tray to me and was all proud and asked me Isn't it the smartest idea ever? And of course it was, but I didn't have the heart to tell her been there, done that because that would be rude. Until now. The truth comes out on the blog.

It really is brilliant.

You all? If you're new, and you don't ever know who the heck Kel, or Danielle or Melissa is, check out my "friends and family page". And you really should know them, because I think they're kind of awesome.

  2. HAHAHA, first of all K, I'm super flattered to have a WHOLE paragraph on your blog...OMG. Secondly, I only call my closest of friends by initials....and only use acronyms when speaking to them BFF's for REALZ and thirdly......I get freaking 3 weeks to call you K and ONLY K due to the fact that I called YOU, K to ask if you had a primary care physician and there was NO answer!!! So, I had to take it to the streets (Facebook) and get some opinions....I did value yours enough to call you first, but......BOOO HISSS!!!!!

    Kelwood OUT!

  4. It is a brilliant idea. I so agree. When we have company, I am always secretly hoping my husband will offer to scoop the ice cream. It's hard to scoop it out, and it usually comes out in little pieces - not a nice round scoop like it should!

    Thanks for the amazing idea!
