I Heart Snowcones!

So as I have said before I think that snowcones should have a food group of there very own. I see now that my obssession has become an addiction. I seriously have one everyday. My favorite is pink lemon sour. There is a snow shack very close to school. Yesterday I skipped a day and I was very grouchy. I feel as if I am wasting my money but I just can't stop. They are so delicious and they put a smile on my face. So today I was thinking and feeling guilty about how many I eat a week but still decided to stop for my second round after school. There is a place on the way home called African Ice. I have often wondered how the African's enjoy their ice. To my surprise they like theirs just like the rest of the world. I found out that it is called African Ice because everytime you buy a snowcone they give you an african coin and you have three options of places to donate. They have explinations of each charity and a place to put your donation. So today I donated to a single mother by the name of Annanita. It was a sign to me that each time a suck down some of that icey deliciousness I am saving the world. Yay me! They are cheaper there to. Did I mention that I love snowcones.

I wish they had an African place around here, somewhere. I would totally partake and help someone in need. You keep eatin em from that place. You're doing your part to make the world a better place one snowcone at a time.

We don't have any cool African snow cone places up here. We don't actually have any cool places up here. You've been here you know what I'm saying. We can drive for a few miles and get a soft serve ice cream twist. I prefer a total chocolate soft serve. Kacey prefers a choc. van. twist with candies all over it.

If you're looking for charities to donate to, there is one called Save The Aramie that is a very worth-while cause.
When I was a kid and we lived in CA, I used to get one called Tiger's Blood. I don't know if I liked it because of the mystery and intrigue one imagines when you hear "Tiger's Blood", or if it was because it tasted like raspberry.

Yes, it's true. I have been letting the phone ring and not picking up no matter who is calling. I'm in a funk. I'm sure that after I have filled my bucket at church tomorrow I will be much more likely to reach out to others, because Jesus said to.

Dont feel bad, its better than a daily dairy queen trip that has packed about 8 extra pounds on my tail! Snow cones are not bad for you! Enjoy, you only live once! Besides after your hard work you deserve a treat!~

I do have to say Leah that I too am a lover of the snowcone. There are three stands here in town, but my favorite is the snowstop. They have a summer kiss flavor that is amazing, it has like peach and strawberry and something else. It is deluxe!!
