Summer means a couple things for my kids.

One: they’re stuck going on all my weird adventures. If I need to drive an hour for something for a blog post, they’re all going with me and we’re stopping at a taco place, a beach, whatever happens to be in my Yelp bookmarks on the way.

They’re already over it.

And two: all their friends move. Every summer, man. Every summer all their friends move. #armylife

It’s rough. My oldest always has a great group of friends at the end of the school year and then they leave and he’s bored.

So last year when it happened I get him his first phone.  And this year I decided to upgrade the phone and his plan to make it easier for him to keep up with his friends.

And also to keep him entertained when I impulsively decide to drive across the state of Texas for perfect chips and queso.

If you know me at all, you know I love a food truck. So that’s why I’m super excited about the Eggo Waffle Truck that is traveling around the country this summer. It started in April and will go through September, stopping a total of 200 times in 100 days.

The Eggo Waffle Truck will be in my area next week and, of course, I’ll be headed down there.  If you want to see when the Eggo Waffle Truck will be in your area, click here:

Hey guys, happy Friday! How was your week? Are you also depressed that there was no Bachelorette this week?

Anyway, my mom came in yesterday! Kicked that off by realizing that the Jeep had a flat tire minutes before I needed to leave for the airport to get her. Luckily the boyfriend was here and got it changed for me because otherwise?

I would’ve sat in my driveway and cried.

I haven’t seen my mom in almost a year – crazy, right? I mean, we talk pretty much every day of our lives but still. Of course the boys started begging to go to the lake as soon as she stepped off the plane so we ended up spending a couple hours floating around.

You guys.

I’m in love with this bowl right now.

So much that when I dropped the beautiful heart Pyrex that I love so much that happened to be holding the Korean beef, I may have cried a little. Over the beef. Not the Pyrex.

Yep.

Okay, so if you follow me anywhere, you know I’m obsessed with the bulgogi fries from one of the local food trucks.

Obsessed.

I think about them daily.

But they close on the weekends. And also, I probably shouldn’t be eating fries every day of my life. So I came up with this.
