PIN IT NOW TO SAVE THIS RECIPE FOR LATER!
Do you ever have those moments? The ones were you think something, say it out loud, and then later hear how silly it sounds? Unfortunately I have them a little too often.
The other day I was convinced my phone wasn’t getting messages right. I had a few people who had messaged me, and I had answered them back, but there were no replies to my follow up questions.
Now if it had just been one person, I wouldn’t have thought anything of it. But after a few people…I was starting to think it was either me…or the phone. I was definitely going with it being a phone issue.
After waiting a few days, I messaged a friend back to see if she had gotten my message. She said, “of course I did…I answered you in my mind. Didn’t you get it? LOL!”
Now in my defense my brain read it as “yes, I answered you with WHAT was on my mind.” Totally two different things.
Anyway, my oldest was listening to me complain about how my phone must be having issues because it didn’t send me that message from my friend. He took the phone to look at my settings, and then just started laughing hysterically.
He saw the text and got what my friend meant right away. After laughing at me for quite some time, he shook his head and said that he wasn’t worried about college anymore. Basically he said if his mom can get through life as a blonde, he could get through college. How rude! Ok, fine. So, I might resemble that comment!
The other day after my blonde moment I needed chocolate. Yes, the chocolate candy bars in the pantry would have worked, but I also wanted something to dip some berries in. This hot chocolate cheesecake dip is usually my go to sweet dip when I get that craving, but this time dark chocolate was all I could think about!
My conversation with my son reminded me that he will be going to college in a year! A YEAR!!! I think I’m going to need another very big bowl full of chocolate dip and a batch of peanut butter buckeye pretzels to cope with this. How in the world did he get this old?
If you need me, I’ll be hiding my blonde head in my closet with the dark chocolate cheesecake dip and all the cookies and crackers from the house. On second thought, I will probably just be using a spoon. You know that’s how you want to eat it too!
I just love creamy dips that I can dip cookies and fruit in. I’m looking forward to trying this Cream Cheese Fruit Dip, this Lemon Cheesecake Fruit Dip, and this Strawberry Chocolate Chip Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Dip in the next few weeks.
