So the other day I was driving to pick my kids
up from school when I realized my hands
up from school when I realized my hands
really could use some lotion.
I have been driving for so many years...no problem.
I knew that I could handle getting in my bag,
grabbing the lotion, and staying in my lane.
Like I said, no problem at all.
The problem comes as I keep my eyes
on the road and squeeze the lotion on my hands.
I drop the tube in my lap and start
to rub the the lotion on my hands.
Immediately I realize that I squeezed
way too much out...and my hands were WHITE.
I didn't even want to touch the steering wheel.
It was bad...really bad.
My mind is racing with my options...
do I should just wipe it on my jeans or
just wipe it on the van seat?
Both sounded bad...
I don't want lotion spots in my jeans forever, and...
I don't want my husband to "kill" me for wiping it on the seat.
Then I remembered...I shaved this morning.
So, very carefully...remember I am still driving...
I pull up a pant leg and rub some lotion in.
Then I repeated on the other side.
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
It's just a good thing there wasn't that much
traffic on that road.
Hey, I stayed in my lane the entire time.
I just was very preoccupied.
You know what else seemed like a good idea at the time?
Almond Joy Popcorn!!!!
And truly it was a great idea!!!
I mean, 2 kinds of chocolate, 2 kinds of Almond Joy,
toasted coconut and almonds. Be still my heart!!!!
The only problem...is trying to stop once you start:-)
If you like coconut, I dare you to make some...
and try to stop eating!

I read through your Almond Joy Popcorn recipe twice. It has you toast a bunch of coconut on a pan, then never has you add it in anyplace. When do you add it?
Whoops! Good catch. I fixed the recipe to show adding the coconut with everything else!
I just wanted to say THANKS for this recipe! I pinned it when I first saw it, because it looks so yummy, and I finally made it for a party! It was a hit! And I ended up gobbling up the rest of it when everyone left... there may have not been any in the morning to share with my kids, oops! So yummy. And since you share so many yummy things with me I thought I'd share this with you...
After making this popcorn it gave me a great idea for ice cream here is my Almond Joy Ice Cream
1 cup almond milk
14 oz. cream of coconut (find it in the booze isle)
1 ½ cups heavy cream
1 ½ cups sweetened flaked coconut (toasted)
1 ½ cups sliced almonds (toasted)
1 cup chocolate of choice (melted)
1-2 cups chopped Almond Joy candy bars
Toast coconut and Almonds (lay out on wax paper)
Melt chocolate and drizzle over the coconut and almonds. Let harden. Break up into bit size pieces. Wisk almond milk, cream of coconut, and heavy cream together.
Dump everything into ice cream freezer, and freeze.

Very funny story...unfortunately, it happens more than you think. That has happened with me when I had purchased an inexpensive, watery floral lotion that I purchased without sampling it. I loved the scent but it clearly was too watery for application while driving. I have slapped on excess lotion on my legs while driving more than one time but less than 5 times. I learned the hard way. Funny hearing that it happens to other people though. Invest in the expensive, thick lotion if you plan on using the lotion while driving...lol
Very funny post...lol This looks incredibly yummy:)
excuse me while I wipe off the drool! These are all my favorite things combined!
I'd love for you to share this at our linky party.
These are all my favorites combined in one. I will have to make this. I think my kids will LOVE it. Thanks for sharing.
You crack me up! I have a bag of Coconut M&M's that would be a perfect for this! Yummmm...
So glad you have smooth legs, hehehe!!
Sounds great! I pinned it. Also, I like your older posts, so I'm going to start following you.

Lol- you better be careful!! This looks so yummy!!! Now- I am hungry. 10pm- uh oh !
Seriously sounds amazing!
A many a time have I multi-tasked while driving!
P.S. your popcorn looks yummy!
Haha, I can just picture this (driving down the road w/ lotion all over) - I'm guilty - done this but I think I wiped the excess all over whoever was sitting next to me (luckily).
Great idea! I'm not a big fan of traditional popcorn but love this idea.

What a great way to multitask! This popcorn looks so good. I want!!
You're my new favorite mom. And if you ever feel like adopting an eager dessert-eating, house-cleaning freak child into your home, I would hope I'd be your first candidate.
Oh, and as long as this comes as one of the perks because I cannot handle how delicious it looks and I just may copycat it.
I always love your stories! This one cracked me up. I have no idea what I'd do in that situation either, probably just try to slather it all on my arms. At least it didn't end in an accident!
What a decadent treat! YUMMY I'd eat the whole bowl!
