Project 41: December

This was Month 10 of Project 41 and I'm loving it just as much as I did at the beginning.  I highly recommend that everyone stretch out their birthday celebration to last an entire year!  I also highly recommend actively seeking out friends you haven't seen in awhile or you don't normally see one-on-one and treating them to ice cream.  It's been a really awesome experience.

After November's less-than-delicious ice cream, I was excited to see that December sounded amazing.  December's flavor-of-the-month is Peppermint Bark in the Dark.  It's described as "crunchy peppermint bark and creamy chocolate ice cream all wrapped together with a peppermint candy and white chocolate-flavored ribbon."  

 
Here's how it looked.  It dripped on my hand while I was trying to take the picture.  I wish they kept the ice cream just a degree or two colder at this particular Baskin-Robbins so that I'd have more than 5 seconds to snap a picture before it starts to drip.

 
I'm happy to report that Peppermint Bark in the Dark was as delicious as I'd hoped!  I'd definitely have it again, no question.  I've been keeping a mental list in my mind of how I'd rank the flavors-of-the-month and this one is definitely near the top.

This month's companion was my good friend / former dance partner / Trevor's godfather, Larry. I met Larry through ballroom dance sometime around 1996.  

 
We danced together socially often, but the first time we were partnered for a routine was in 1999 for a tango.  Here we are during a dress rehearsal in a gym.



He we are in 2001, partnered for a waltz routine.  Again, this is a dress rehearsal in a gym.  



I've misplaced all the proper portraits from my dance years.  I've torn the house apart at least five times looking for them and it's making me crazy.  I have my albums with all the snapshots, but I'm missing all of the portraits with each of my partners over the 11 years I danced.  I know I promised months and months ago to blog about my dance days and I keep waiting to find the photos.  I might need to just break down and just use snapshots to tell the story.

Anyway, Larry and I had a great time eating ice cream and catching up.  We see each other every few months, which is not nearly enough.  The time flew by.

Another wonderful Project 41!

  4. First, that ice cream flavor sounds DELICIOUS!!!! Second, I love the dancing pics!! I hope you are able to find them soon!!! I hate when that happens.... I bet you'll post it with snapshots and then those "missing" photographs will magically appear. That's what always seems to happen to me anyway ;) LOL
