Frosting Faces.

May 23, 2011

You get excited when you find money in your pockets, I get excited when I find candy in my pockets.  As I was doing laundry and checking my jacket it kind of freaked me out how happy it made me that I found a sucker.  A See’s candy sucker…..fancy candy rocks

IMG 6190

The clouds parted just in time for us to have a bbq.  It was meant to be.  There may or may not be a 2:1 Ketchup to Beef ratio on my burger.  I like my burger to be messy, maybe that is why my family asked me to eat out on the deck.

This little man doesn’t like bread but I secretly think he is just trying out Paleo or Atkins.

IMG 6187

Many handstand contests occurred and

IMG 6203

baby throwing…..

IMG 6213

For dessert we had chocolatey chocolatey Matilda style cake.  And my question for you is……

IMG 6229

Why is it only cute when Kids smear chocolate cake all over their face?

IMG 6237

My other question is…..how could a human being eat chocolate cake without a ginormous cup of milk.  That would just be wrong.

P.S. Billy wanted me to show you a new move to get you ripped.  Nice try honey.

Last Monday school day of the year.  I think I will celebrate by waking up at the crack of dawn, put a swimsuit on and swim my little heart out. That also means I have to wash my hair after and I should probably shave my legs at some point.  Things are getting scary.

————————————————————————————————————-

How often do you shave your legs?  Do any of you get laser hair removal….what is your experience with that?  It is my dream to get it done.

Favorite burger/veggie burger topping?

-Bacon (sorry, I have to be honest), cheese and when I really don’t care about my arteries, fried onion straws.

Favorite Sucker?

-Carmel apple suckers…..is that just a Utah thing or do they have them everywhere.  Sugar Daddy’s are also delicious.

Favorite flavor of frosting?

-We had triple chocolate fudge (with chocolate chips in it) and it stole my heart.  It’s a good thing that my lunch box is jam packed full of fruits and veggies for today because I am starting to worry about cavities.

Whoohooo to the last Monday!! I said the same thing in my blog this morning :)

Shave: Probably not as often as I should LOL
Frosting: home made Cream cheese frosting YUM!

Paula @ Eat: Watch: Run May 23, 2011 at 6:56 am

Um, cream cheese frosting FOR SURE.

I do love lemon frosting too. I think that's cuz my mom used to put lemon frosting on my pacifer when I was a baby so I wouldn't spit it out. < —- true story

Running Ricig May 23, 2011 at 6:57 am

your nephew doesn't like bread? I could live on bread alone, lol!

I shave whenever I feel like I"m getting too hairy…poor Mike. The kid had no idea what he was getting into when he married me.

My favorite frosting is definitely cream cheese, you can't go wrong! OH! Or peanut butter!

Victoria (The District Chocoholic) May 23, 2011 at 6:57 am

As a daily swimmer, I assure you that it is perfectly acceptable to go with hairy legs. Nobody can see it once you get in the water. It is also encouraged to not wash your hair. The chlorine will give you nice highlights.

Laura @ Meet Virginia May 23, 2011 at 6:59 am

I've had laser hair removal on my armpits. It hurts like NOTHING ELSE I have ever experienced, but it's worth it!

Reply

Mrs. JM May 23, 2011 at 6:59 am

well, i know i'm not going to find any money in my pockets so i'd gladly take a sucker. tootsie pops are my fav. no burgers for me but i'd gladly share that chocolate cake with anyone who is willing and i shave a couple times a week. the husband teases me at the glimpse of growth so i've developed an insecurity. lol.

yeah for last school monday!

Reply

ATTrio May 23, 2011 at 7:07 am

Wow, I can't believe the kid doesn't like bread?? It is my favorite food :)

I shave every couple of days in the summer and every few days in the winter. I dread doing it!

I haven't had a caramel apple sucker in forever. They are soooo good!

Don't eat that many burgers but I like the usu.. no bacon tho.

Frosting has to be vanilla or chocolate but with white cake and it has to be cold.

That cake seriously looks awesome….and I don't really even like cake!!!! hahaha

MrsQ318 May 23, 2011 at 7:22 am

If I want to stay smooth feeling, I have to shave every day… but I actually only shave every other day, sometimes after 2 or 3 days. Sometimes I'll shower just to shave (and skip the hair washing), which I'm about to do now so my legs won't resemble those of a woolly mammoths when I go to the gym in the morning. LOL

runyogarepeat May 23, 2011 at 7:26 am

Love the Matilda joke! Avocado or guac is my favorite on veggie burgers…as long as it's creamy.

Reply

Alaina May 23, 2011 at 7:30 am

I do shave every day, I shave my underarms. My legs are about every 3 days. I never thought about laser hair removal. Maybe in *ahem* that area though.

Favorite topping is sauteed onions and melty gooey cheese. :-)

Reply

Christina May 23, 2011 at 7:36 am

Yum Frosting!!

I'm getting laser hair removal now and so far I love it. You see results after the first treatment and the hair keeps getting lighter from there. I've had a few friends that are completely done with their treatments now. They say it takes 6 treatments but they've all had to do 8-12 to get rid of all the hair. I bought my treatments off of Groupon.com and got a great deal. It's so much less expensive if you can find it on Groupon!

Reply

Jen May 23, 2011 at 8:07 am

I think you look really good with frosting on your face!
It is my dream to have laser hair removal too! I'm gonna have to get a job! I shave my legs about every other day. You know, just in case!
My favorite hamburger topping is avocado. Bacon is a close second though!
I'm so excited for school to be out! My kids said the same thing this morning! Last Monday of school. Of course we have to go back after Memorial Day, but oh well!

Reply

The Hungered One May 23, 2011 at 8:15 am

I shave my legs every day – can't stand the feeling. Groupon has great deals on laser hair removal all the time.

Favorite burger topping? Cheese! :) Totally do not like frosting. Gah

Congrats on this being the last Monday! HOoray!

Reply

Kristen May 23, 2011 at 8:16 am

Shave- every day or every other. Pits are different that has to be every day because I cant stand unshaven pits. I love grilled pineapple on burgers. Carmel apple lollipops are the best but I cant find them all that often, maybe I'm just not looking for them. I love caramel frosting. I had it once and now I dream about it.

Reply

Jill {i run i eat} May 23, 2011 at 8:30 am

I'm in the middle of doing laser hair removal on my legs. I've done it on my underarms & it was the best decision I've ever made. It takes usually 6 visits to get the hair completely gone. I just did my 2nd & it's already amazing!

Reply

mojamala2 May 23, 2011 at 8:32 am

I actually almost wore capri running tights the other day because i needed to shave my legs. it was almso 80 degrees so I got over it and wore shorts anyways.
Fav buger topping, cheese and some kind of creamy sauce and no veggies. Go burger or go home!
Fav sucker, chupa chups. I don't even know if they sell them anymore.

Reply

Stephanie May 23, 2011 at 8:36 am

That cake looks super yummy :) But I must be honest and say that I do not like milk, sorry but I just can't drink the stuff. I MUST shave my legs EVERYDAY!!!! If for some reason I can't shave it bugs me the whole day long. Even if it's winter and I know that no one will see or touch my legs I still have to shave.

Reply

Holly May 23, 2011 at 8:58 am

You always MAKE my Mondays :) I love your re-caps from your family time. I think it's so awesome that you have such a close family! & you can tell, just by looking at pictures, how much you truly enjoy your time together.

Today's my last Monday of the school year as well! I'm so excited about that!

I shave whenever I think about it or the next day after I actually look at my legs. :D

Reply

graduategourmande May 23, 2011 at 9:19 am

I shave my legs way less than is socially acceptable. OH WELL!

Burger topping = avocado. Lollipop = green apple Blow Pop. Frosting = cream cheese. and chocolate. and strawberry.

Reply

Rene May 23, 2011 at 9:22 am

Saving – every other day. I tried laser hair removal and it was the biggest waste of money for me.
I love avacado on my burgers but grilled onions rock too.
Frosting flavor- chocolate of course.

Nicole May 23, 2011 at 9:52 am

My favorite turkey burger (I don't do red meat, don't ask why because I don't even know) is avocado! I just love me some avocado. Favorite frosting? Hands down, funfetti frosting! I eat it on graham crackers when I'm feeling daring.

As for the shaving my legs question, I'll just say that this morning as I was getting ready for the gym, I felt my legs and thought, "eh, I'm not shaving them." Don't tell ANYONE my secret!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail May 23, 2011 at 10:15 am

Frosting faces in general are always in style! Gosh, your family is close–love it!! the nieces and nephew have the best facial expressions!

Okay, I would love laser treatments to, I can't stand when I'm prickly, so I shave every other day at the minimum! :)

Bucket-o-buttercream please, I think I'd be 300 lbs if I had a cupcake shop!

Samantha May 23, 2011 at 10:18 am

I love sugar daddies, but I'm scarred for life b/c when I was little a sugar baby was so sticky it pulled out a loose tooth, which I bit down on. Ahhh! That was scary.

Laser hair removal = so worth it. But you do have to go like once a month for 6 months until it is permanent. If I win the lottery I'll totally get my full legs done!

littlecollegevegan May 23, 2011 at 10:18 am

I love carmel apple suckers! I used to keep a big bag of them in my car in high school and would eat them all the time!

Chels May 23, 2011 at 10:30 am

Last Monday of the school year for me too!! I am horrible about shaving my legs, I try at least twice a week. At least I always make sure to before a date night or weekend event. I am just to darn lazy!

Reply

Wealth is Health May 23, 2011 at 10:36 am

I shave like once a week in the winter and probably three times a week in the summer… it's a pain in the butt, I wish I had no leg hair.

Favorite frosting is funfetti frosting, I know it's store bought and processed, but so yummy!

I am curious as to why you did not say who won that handstand contest? Did the little ones beat you out haha

Reply

Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife May 23, 2011 at 10:39 am

I love caramel apple suckers too! And cream cheese frosting is the bombdotcom. I'd love laser hair removal….the husband says I can have it later on down the road when we're millionaries ;)

Reply

katie @ KatieDid May 23, 2011 at 10:42 am

bacon a guacamole, easily the best toppings! I love creamcheese frosting and homemade vanilla or chocolate, I really can't stand store bought frosting if I'm being honest! and we don't call candy suckers, so I'm not sure what you mean, lollipops? if thats the case then I'm fine with a tootsie pop!

Reply

cleaneatingchelsey.com May 23, 2011 at 10:59 am

In the winter, I seriously shave my legs like every two weeks. It's disgusting. In the summertime, I have to shave them every day. I hate the prickly feeling!

How can one hate bread? Seriously!?!?

lolzthatswim May 23, 2011 at 11:00 am

The baby throwing and hand stand just made me laugh so hard.

My favorite burger topping is ketchup. I'm too obsessed ha.

Reply

Alisa May 23, 2011 at 11:03 am

I only shave my legs when the fur gets itchy. My mom only has like three leg hairs, why couldn't I be blessed with those jeans!

I love my turkey burgers with avocado and onion straws. Creamy and crunchy? Sign me up!

I like suckers like tootsie roll pops. Just when you think you are done with the candy, more shows up! And also ring pops. Only because I like to pretend that I'm that rich to afford a giant rock.

Reply

DEM May 23, 2011 at 11:07 am

I usually shave twice a week, when I remember or am afraid I will scare away my sit-up partner at bootcamp – is it weird I didn't mention when my boyfriend is around?

Favorite burger topping = guacamole – such a great explosion of flavor on top of a burger!!

I used to love the caramel apple ones, but I can't find them anymore (and I am from Boston, not Utah!) I really love the surprise flavor dum dums (they have ??? all over them)

frosting…lemon icing or chocolate buttercream :)

brittanysalmon May 23, 2011 at 11:11 am

Girl I feel you on the shaving… I may or may not treat myself to a leg waxing at the beginning of the summer just so I don't have to shave the first 6 weeks of summer. Seriously. Laser hair removal would be a dream… yes, please, and thank you.

I'm excited for you to have your mornings free for a while. I think people like you (teachers) who are willing to teach and love our kids every day are so fabulous! Have a fun summer. Thanks so much for your encouragement…I so need it this week. I sometimes get carried away and end up venting on my blog, not looking for anyone to give a squirt but when you all leave such sweet comments encouraging me…it makes all the difference. Thanks for taking the time to cheer me on!! :)

My fave burger topping is the sauteed shroom and onion fix! And globs and globs of ketchup…it's kinda sick. How does your nephew not like bread?! That's crazy because all I would eat when I was his age was bread!

Omg! I love chocolate frosting. Did you know you can make fudge out of frosting and chocolate chips? Any flavor of both and just microwave the whole package of chips to get all melty. Then add all the frosting and mix well. Put in fridge to harden. Delish. I'm partial to vanilla frosting with Reese's PB chips :)

Reply

Jamie May 23, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Laser hair removal totally DOESN'T WORK! I had it done a few years ago on my armpits and unmentionable. It was painful and I still have to shave. Boo. And I had 9 or 10 treatments.

Reply

Emily @ eat.drink.run. May 23, 2011 at 2:20 pm

totally agree with you on the milk – it would be wrong to have such a delicious piece of chocolate cake without a huge glass of milk!

my fave burger toppings are probably caramelized onions, bbq sauce, cheddar cheese and avocado. yum.

i love all frosting flavors – no discrimination! :)

Reply

Caitlin May 23, 2011 at 2:41 pm

okay, frosting is AWESOME on anyone's face! the chocolatier the better too, you add chunks of choc chips in there and you've got euphoria.

but i'm sorry to have to jump on the anti-milk campaign here. haha. not a big fan, but i do drink soy milk with my cereal.

finally, mustard is my condiment of choice on anything it rightly belongs on…love me that yellow stuff! :)

Reply

Logan May 23, 2011 at 2:55 pm

That cake looks so so good. My favorite burger topping is definetely crunchy peanut butter. Don't hate until you try it. My favorite sucker is the pina colada dum dums. My favorite frosting is the kind you that are on those soft sugar cookies from safeway.

Reply

Tessa @ Amazing Asset May 23, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Mmm chocolate cake… I want some NOW!
It definitely depends on the season when I shave my legs. In winter- perhaps every few weeks, or when I look at them one day and am scared by what I see. In the summer though, I go to the beach whenever I can so I try to keep my legs nicely shaven all of the time :)
Favorite sucker are Tootsie Roll pops, Raspberry flavor to be specific!
Favorite frosting has to be Funfetti- the vanilla processed, sugary amazingness with the small colored candy pieces mixed in

Reply

Holly May 23, 2011 at 3:17 pm

Definitely chocolate icing. Shaving my legs every other day now… winter was a different story.

So remember how I think we're bfs and now you're showing up in my dreams? Yeah. Talk about creeper. And I was coming here to tell you about the dream and now I can't remember it. Pretty sure it involved some yogurtland. And thanks for posting the delicious looking burger. Now I want one and the chocolate chips I'm eating are not cutting it. Are you watching the Bach tonight?? I can't decide. Ashley BUGS. Okay, so I need some tips on how to spread the word about your blog. I mean my blog. We have this cooking blog, right? And we don't know how to get the word out about it. I mean we fb about it and whatever, but that's just people we already know, ya know? So maybe I can bribe you to tell me your secrets? Maybe bribe you with discontinuing my creepo comments? Would that work? :)

Ummmmmmm that burger + beans combo looks HEAVENLY.

I'm with you… bacon. And cheese (lots of it. Many different types. The more the merrier!!). relish/chutney/pickles/etc. Caramelised onions. Fried egg. Yummm. But really.. i'm not that picky. Burger = GET IN MY BELLY.

I shave my legs… errmm… maybe once a week. At best. Haha. I'm pretty lazy.

As for lollipops…I like anything apple or grape flavoured! Oh and I always used to love the banana/chocolate chupa chups. Haven't had one of those in years! Should definitely fix this ASAP :)

All frosting is good as far as I'm concerned. Cream cheese is amazing but sometimes nothing but just a really plain, simple, basic chocolate will do! That cake is ROCKING MY WORLD and making me starving even though it's only 9:30am and I only had breakfast like 10 minutes ago.. arghhhh it's gonna be a loooong day! :\

Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner May 23, 2011 at 6:48 pm

So over shaving. I do it only to be nice to my hubby! Without him, it would be a like a once a season trim.
Burgers MUST have ketchup and pickles, and lollipops I'll basically take anything! See's ones are really good though.
I love plain vanilla frosting…from the tub…with a spoon. BONUS points if you pour shredded coconut straight into the tun and eat!

I know I'm a day or so late commenting, but I just thought I would make everyone jealous and share that I shave my legs once every 2 years or so. I have really, really fine light leg hair that goes unnoticed all year round. I know I should do it more often, but I just can't be bothered!
