Project 41: July

My Project 41 companions for March, April, May and June all live within a few miles of me, but Colleen traveled over 3000 miles to try Baskin-Robbins' July Flavor-of-the-Month with me.  OK, she's technically in California for a family member's milestone birthday, but she did make a point to join me for the Flavor of the Month, which is Oreo 'N Chocolate.  

 
According to the description, "Our two favorite flavors finally together in a single scoop.  Creamy chocolate ice cream and crunchy Oreo cookie pieces swirled with a crispy fudge crackle ribbon."



It sounded delicious and it was.  The "crispy fudge crackle ribbon" was to die for.  We both loved it.  Another thing I love?  This picture of Colleen and me.  We were actually with a third friend, Nikki, who can't eat dairy and thus couldn't play along.  But it meant that for the first time, I didn't have to extend my arm to take the Project 41 picture.  Yet despite the fact that it was a normal picture that didn't involve an outstretched arm, I'm holding my ice cream cone so much closer to the camera than Colleen is that it looks like my cone is 5 times the size of hers, which it was not.  

 
It had been two years since I'd seen Colleen and three years since I'd seen Nikki (coincidentally in California from South Carolina at the same time as Colleen), so needless to say, we had a lot to talk about and the time flew by.  After ice cream, we met up with a fourth friend, Kathy, who lives about two hours from me.  It was a wonderful visit.


Thanks to Colleen for joining me for July's Project 41!
