By the time the official first day of summer rolled around, I had already completed my goal to "try three new ice cream shops" in my 'hood.
Now THAT'S an accomplishment.
If there's one thing I've learned about goals, it's this: Create ones that are measurable. And by "are measurable," I mean, "involve a tape measure and my waist."
In the mix of the three shops I visited, I tried not just ice cream, but frozen yogurt, frozen custard, and gelato. (Overachiever alert!) You won't catch me turning a single one of those down, but I gotta say this: I like a frozen milk product that makes my fat cells CHEER.
Sorry, frozen yogurt. No pom-poms are comin' out for you.
Speaking of not donning a tiny cheerleading skirt, I'm pretty pleased with checking one fun thing off my list of summer plans.
Might need some ice cream to celebrate.
To my local Portland friends: I included the names of the shops in case you need to say, MAKE SOME GOALS for your summer as well.
