Day 152, Day 153, & Day 154 – Of Spoons & Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshakes

Day 152, Day 153, & Day 154.

Another tri-fecta for the peeps. Alas, I do not like smashing three posts into one, but we’re coming up on one month left in my quest to eat Every Day with Chick-fil-A, so a brotha’s gotta do what a brotha’s gotta do! (The last part of that sentence annoyed half of you reading this; heck, it annoyed me too, but it conveys the thought without much thought on my part, and that’s what poor writing is all about.)

It’s a good thing I take pictures so I can remember what happened the past three days (four when you factor Sunday).

Day 152 – Rachael was my server:

I grabbed a 6-pk of cookies because I had eaten lasagna that night as part of our compare and contrast box lasagnas post, so I was really in the mood for something sweet.

Day 153 – This was done in the early a.m., making it my second Chick-fil-A trip within a 12-hour span.  I had my 7 a.m. Saturday morning workout with friends (think Crossfit or P90X stuff in modified fashion), and CFA is right on the way home. I popped in and chatted it up with Colby, grabbed my #7 Multi-grain Bagel Sandwich with hash browns and bottled water, and hit the road. The only bummer is I didn’t have my phone because I actually went inside and left it in the car, so I settled for a drive-by on my out:

Day 154 – A lot easier to remember today’s trip, as I just got back. It had been a while since I ate, so I splurged in my #5 12-pc Chicken Nuggets meal by going with a limited time Peppermint Chocolate Chip shake, and it was worth every calorie. Don’t worry, I went with a small:

I really savored every minute of it, and used every last bit of self-control I had to save a few slurps for my wife. Thanks to Jessica for the service and Ryan #2 for getting the order spot-on over the intercom:

Now I thought I’d give a little Asher montage from this morning’s play session on the lanai.  Please note these pics were taken over a 20 minute span from the same vantage point, but Asher is playing at different spots each time. However, there is another constant in each photo that is noted with the red arrow.  The kid just won’t give up his applesauce spoon. Enjoy.

Now don’t let him fool you on this next one. Seems the “Word of the Day” on Sesame Street that we’ve watched and heard like 900 times – “incognito” – has taken root.

20 minutes later, the spoon is still intact. Hey, what can I say? The kid loves spoons.

See you on Day 155 tomorrow!
