I couldn’t resist posting this pic of little Miss Alexandra. Isn’t she cute? She had her face painted at the Apple Fest in Long Grove this past weekend where I waited an insane amount of time for apple doughnuts. (Random side note: I really should have bought the apple cider. Omg. So good. Liquid apple dude. Liquid apple. I love the autumn season. But I digress.) The things I will do to satisfy cravings…

So what do we do after spending a good part of the afternoon waiting in line to purchase food? We spend a good part of the evening waiting in line to buy one last ice cream cone from Toot’s on Central and Montrose since, as it turned out, everyone and their mama was out to get one last thing from Toots before they move locations. However when I step up to place my usual ‘Small Vanilla Twinkle Coat’ order the guy says ‘No more Twinkle Coat. Gone forever.’ Whaaaa??!! Porque? But the sign next to the window said ‘Same exact stuff’ at their new location…we’ll see… I was denied my final twinkle coat and had to make due with a Dipped Top. Oh well, still the best soft serve ice cream around anyways. The perfect cone to get on summer days.

Biggest regret of the night: Not winning the “Lick Me” sign. I would’ve been the coolest girl in school if I hung that sucker in my cube at work :p
