Day 137, Day 138, & Day 139 – Three Days, Three Desserts, One Happy Man

Day 137, Day 138, & Day 139.

Okay, so Colby totally called me out tonight as I went through the Chick-fil-A drive-thru about 9:30.  “Three days,” he says. I’m thinking, “Yup, three days of just desserts,” or “Three days you’ve been working in a row.”  Nope, that’s not what he was referencing. “It’s been three days and no blog.”


Alas, Colby is right, as Colby is on top of things, always. I could give you a million reasons why I haven’t blogged in three days about my every day with Chick-fil-a experience; well, maybe a dozen or so. But I don’t see the benefit in listing them here as it will just take more sleepy-time away from these tired eyes.

So, without further ado, I present Day 137, which started three days of dessert only orders:

You’ll notice that Colby actually answers to Jessica, who I found out is the baby of the bunch. Seniority rules. This night was a Cookies & Cream shake, since my wife made a really nice dinner of sauteed veggies and sauce.

Day 138 was also a dessert only kind of night, as I took Liza out for her birthday and Bonefish left little room for a Chick-fil-A meal.  But a 6-pk of cookies?  That fit nicely into the schedule.  Oh, those amazing, best-kept-secret Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies!

It was nice to celebrate her birthday as it was the first time we’d been alone without Asher since he came home on August 19th to the States.  Here we are celebrating:

Haha – Liza looks like she was anticipating the flash and trying to not shut her eyes for the picture. Either that or she was just surprised at how much alone time we were able to have.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love me some Chick-fil-A, but Liza’s salmon with that brown sugar butter sauced Pumpkin ravioli isn’t exactly too shabby:

We were grateful to have Colby and Taylor serve us our blessed cookies:

Then onto Day 139, which started by finding that little Asher happens to love riding in his little wagon. Can’t believe I hadn’t tried this before now!  And in typical fashion, I got this picture just after he was laughing his head off:

everydaywithchickfilaIn Asher’s defense, he had just heard a plane fly over the house and was enthralled. He very much loves planes and takes them very seriously. We have an airplane community just to the west of us and their flight path is right over our house. It’s pretty cool actually. We might get a half dozen planes each day, and my son loves to watch them, process what he saw, then point at them. It must be so awesome to be 13 months old.

You know what else is awesome?  Cookies. For the second night in a row. And lest you think I’m just hoarding and stockpiling, let me show you the evidence:

Note the bag on the left.  That is from Day 138.  Note it is empty. We don’t mess around with the Chick-fil-A cookies in our household.

So when I rolled up to the CFA tonight, I was glad to see my guy Colby and order some more cookies, despite the fact that he called me out about not blogging.  Well, it worked, because I’m caught up now, so thank you buddy. Thank you, and Ryan #2, and Dylan, and James – James, it’s about time you fixed that intercom malfunction! It was a ghost town on Day 137 and I thought you guys really closed at 9!

Alrighty friends, let’s hope I can be a little more diligent in the future about my blogging. One thing I know – it’s a lot easier to eat Chick-fil-A than just blog about it.
