red velvet ice cream


1. First ice cream run of the SEEAASSSOOONNN!!!

2. First ofΒ many, I should say. SO. MANY.

3. I am so gung-ho over spring right now that I even had the audacity to put away all my winter clothes. For good. It just felt right.

4. I’m sure this means it will snow tomorrow. Because, Murphy’s Law.

5. Mad Men this week was…weird…for lack of a better word. I just can’t even with Don and Betty. I think they live in an alternate universe sometimes.

6. For the past four years that I’ve been in my lab, we’ve always had group meeting on Wednesdays, but last week my boss decided that having it onΒ MONDAY makes so much more sense…so he changed it. And it is totally throwing me off!! In fact, it is highly likely that I will never know what day of the week it is again.

7. Consider yourself warned.

8. So last week, I made the potentially crazy decision to join a CSA this summer! I did it once before (in my pre-the.boy days) and while there were weeks when it drove me crazy (i.e. ALL.THE.LETTUCE), I really think that on the whole it made me look at vegetables in a different way and forced me to be more creative with them. Now I’m just counting down the days until the first pick up date in June…

9. Except not, because June is going to be an INSANE month between a science conference that I’m going to and our honeymoon, and I really don’t need it to be here yet.

10. On a somewhat related note, can someone just figure out how to slow time already?! I would really appreciate it.

    How exciting to go on your first ice cream run!! πŸ™‚ And this week was the first time I HAVEN’T wanted to go on an ice cream run. Autumn is well and truly here and baby, it’s cold. πŸ™‚

  2. Woohoo for ice cream and CSA’s! Warmer weather brings us so many great treats πŸ™‚

  3. Sune Moolman says:

    Ice cream! YAY! My only concern is that you don’t have one in each hand… πŸ˜‰

  4. I’m sure you cannot wait for your honeymoon!

  5. debbie says:

    I am so over spring too….tired of spring showers. Bring on the sun!

  6. Put away my winter coat on Saturday, SNOW today. SNOW. Still didn’t wear a coat on principle. It’s almost May, I refuse.

  7. Don’t kill me, but they just said the word “hail” on the radio. For us. Here in NYC. Hot chocolate, anyone? Happy Wednesday, my friend! xx

  8. Sues says:

    SO happy for ice cream and CSAs!!!

    I put away my winter boots a couple weeks ago and then had to get them back out again. Hopefully they can stay in the closet for good now!

  9. Murphy’s Law already got me!! Tell me how your CSA goes I’ve been considering one.

  10. Trisha says:

    Um, HONEYMOON!? I want the deets! I’m jealous you get to do a CSA. I would totally do one if I could this summer!

  11. bellini says:

    Ice cream, veggies and honeymoons. I think that sums it up.

  12. Heather says:

    We are impatiently waiting for our favorite ice cream shop to open. Hooray ice cream weather! We’ve also been considering joining a CSA as well, but I’ve been on the fence. I do think it would be a great way to get us to eat a broader variety of veggies, though, which would be a win.

  13. yay ice cream!

    and I think it’s great that you’re joining a CSA! If I were less picky I’d be all about it lol

  14. Marina says:

    YES to ice cream all the time. And I think Betty takes the word “shade” to a whole new level….congrats on the CSA! I would definitely consider it!

  15. ice cream run, woot woot!!! ok, it DID snow here last night. . I woke up this morning to snow. WTH? and YES to CSA’s!!! love them! support them! πŸ™‚

  16. Yay for the first ice cream run of the season! Our local ice cream stand just opened and we still haven’t been able to make it there yet!

  17. YAY for ice cream runs! Our local summer ice cream shop just opened up for the season a few weeks ago and I STILL haven’t run down there yet for a cone! Whatt?!

  18. I wish I could put away my winter clothes, but it just snowed for a hot second this morning. I nearly cried. And CSA= fantastic decision.

  19. Pam says:

    You think time flies now? Just wait until you have kids – it goes by super speed.

    Ice cream! Craving lately – a lot of ice cream. I’ve been wanting to do a CSA too but sadly we are camping and traveling a lot in the summer so it just doesn’t work well for me. ;(.

  20. I am totally gonna start putting away my winter clothes, I am DONE with the cold! LOL! Ice cream- YES I am gonna be at Carvel soooon!

  21. Ice cream looks wonderful but you can eat loads of it because you are thin and beautiful. And you exercise like crazy! I would still eat the ice cream.
    Thank you for writing about Mad Men. I have to wait on Netflicks and it’s so great that you put some updates.

    Time travel or slowing, you need one of those standing stone circles like in Outlander. Have you read or watched that series? Awesome.

  22. I haven’t ever joined a CSA – heard about them – but now am curious…

  23. Kate says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now I want ice cream.

  24. P says:

    That ice cream looks so worth it! But the ice creams in the display case also got my attention πŸ˜›

  25. They have a CSA program at my college and I’m so pumped to be eating fresh produce as soon as it’s feasible. I’ve heard CSA is pretty hard sometimes, but not only does, as you said, it push you to be more creative, it’s also so great for the environment. πŸ™‚

  26. Jessie says:

    If you find out the secret to slowing time, let me know because I would totally give all the ice cream for that. Well, maybe not all — that cone looks amazing. I hope spring in NY is treating you well, Joanne!

  27. Christina says:

    So it was sunny, then hailing, then rainy, then snowing and then sunny again yesterday here. Can I put away my winter clothes yet?! In total protest, I too had my first ice cream πŸ™‚

  28. mira says:

    I’ve been loving ice cream lately! And it is almost snowing here in Chicago!

  29. Reeni says:

    It’s COLD sweatshirt weather here today but I still want some of that ice cream!

  30. Hahaha – it was just snowing here for a few minutes a couple of hours ago!! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I looked out the window. But, I’m still game for ice cream runs, even if it is a bit chilly!

  31. Hotly Spiced says:

    My husband has a group meeting every Wednesday morning. He turned up this Wednesday and it had been cancelled – they’re moving it to another day. Maybe it will be on Mondays! xx

  32. I can’t wait to see what you get / make with your CSA boxes. And our team meeting moved from Monday to Wednesday last year, so I feel your pain, but in reverse πŸ™‚

  33. Yay for ice cream! My favorite season πŸ™‚ Awesome that you joined a CSA again too!

  34. I was so excited to reorganize my closet for spring but kind of wish I could just throw away all of my sweaters for good… ah well.

    Ice cream date soon???

  35. Zainab says:

    Hahah bring on the ice cream! I’m gearing up to use my ice cream maker a lot. Also I put away all my winter clothes last weekend and guess what we woke up to today? Yup freaking snow. So yeah. Hate NY.

  36. OMG yes – and I’m not sure if it snowed by you today, but it hailed and snowed here today. ARGH. Not. A. Fan.

  37. If you find someone who can slow time, please let me know. Time goes way to fast.

  38. Lynnette says:

    Not even sure what a CSA is but I enjoyed this little ice cream run summary post. Very delightful to read πŸ™‚
