Silly story

 ***These events have been overly dramatized for your enjoyment. It is lightly based on true events***

Muddy Buddies

Made a huge bag of these today (great picture huh!) and when Travis came home I proudly told him about it. (cause he likes chocolate treats)

He says, ‘oh…cool’ and turns away to do something.

What?! No smile or ‘Thank you love you’re the best because you have treats waiting for me when I come home?!’ I try again…

Voice raised a little bit, he mustn’t have heard me: ‘I made you a special treat today Trav….it has chocolate in it….don’t you like Muddy Buddies?!’ 

*half smile* ‘…..Uh, not really.’

voice raised a little more….‘Hahaha, wait, what?! You don’t like them?! But look, they have chocolate in them! See?!!!!


*shake, shake, shake, shake,shake*

He looks at me like I’m crazy, nods and turn to talk to Emma.

I stand in shock. Letting the truth of what he said settle deep down into my person. Allowing it to alter the very fabric of my homemaking DNA.

At times like these there is only one thing to do: Eat muddy buddies while typing this silly story and invite you to come over and eat some with me so I don’t explode from eating the whole bag.

(did I mention it’s 9 CUPS of muddy buddies?!)

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
  1. Oh no! I hope someone helps you eat them!

  2. Oh Alexis, that just made my day! How many times have I been in that position? Too many to count. Sorry that your work and thoughtfulness went unappreciated or maybe underappreciated is a better word.
