Tonight, Erika and Timmy and Irving and I went for a nice long 4 mile walk through the neighborhood. We were feeling all healthy and good about ourselves for walking… until someone (Irving) mentioned ICE CREAM !

So we took a detour to Rite Aid (don’t laugh) because they have the BEST ice cream there. (Ok, maybe not the best, but pretty good for West Coast ice cream!)

The best part is they dish it out with a square scoop!

I got a Chocolate Cherry Chip! Mmmm!

Friends + Ice Cream + Exercise = YAY!

Back up to this afternoon… I was on the phone wandering around my condo today, when I found this hidden in our closet!

A Closer Look!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am NOT good with secrets. (i.e. I gave Irving his birthday gift two weeks early because I couldn’t WAIT to give it to him.) This is the cruelest thing EVER. It’s torture looking at these nicely wrapped gifts just for ME!

Everyday I have to pull off a post-it not. (As EJ said, it’s like an advent calendar. lol)

What do you think? Should I listen to Irving and wait to open it? Or behave and wait til I’m officially 27 (in –ahem- 12 days)?

One of the things that we DEFINITELY wanted to do in Vermont was visit the Ben & Jerry’s factory! IMG_4675

Can you see us in this picture? I asked Irving which one was the girl supposed to stand in, and then he told me that we were supposed to be “Ben and Jerry”. hahaha oh well.

We were so excited to do the factory tour!

It was really a tour for kids, but it was fun.

And the best part??! SAMPLES!

The flavor of the day was an organic vanilla with chocolate chips!

As if that wasn’t enough icecream…. we decided to get some more at the scoop shop (when in Rome, right?)

IMG_4695

I got three different flavors:

  1. Half Baked (Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams with Fudge Brownies & Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough)
  2. Triple Caramel Chunk (Caramel Ice Cream with a Swirl of Caramel & Fudge Covered Caramel Chunks)
  3. Coconut 7 Layer Bar (Coconut Ice Cream with Coconut & Fudge Flakes, Walnuts and Swirls of Graham Cracker & Butterscotch)

Oh man, SO GOOD!

This is where they steal all their ingredients!
IMG_4704

That’s a lot of sugar!

Then we went to see the “Flavor Graveyard” where some of the dead flavors go when they are discontinued.

They all had cute little sayings on them.

With bellies full of ice cream glory, we arrived at our hotel in Stowe. We stayed at the Green Mountain Inn. It was a perfect location, right in downtown Stowe.

IMG_4719

It was a quaint little room.
IMG_4712

With a walk-in closet!
IMG_4714

We headed to the bar and got some beers
IMG_4718

And played a few rounds of Trivial Pursuit
IMG_4717

Then we ventured out to find some dinner. The town is really walker friendly.
 IMG_4723

And Pretty!
IMG_4726

We ate dinner at Pie in the Sky.
IMG_4730

I got an amazing eggplant pasta dish.
IMG_4727

Delish!
IMG_4728

Look at that cheese!
IMG_4729

We loved the walking trails all around

And the art along the way:
IMG_4732

I wish we had this in Los Angeles!
IMG_4733

It was really hot though. We were a sticky mess!

IMG_4734

It was so cute there!
IMG_4735

I forced Irving to take this picture. Bahaha!
IMG_4738

The next morning, we headed to the “Green Mountain Coffee Cafe”.

IMG_4740

It was in an old train depot.
IMG_4739

Mmm Coffee!
IMG_4742

We got some coffee, straight from the source.
