Dairy Queen Days

Summer is in full swing which (unfortunately) means that in just about a month, I'll have to go back to the real world and teach 10th and 11th graders grammar and literature once again. It's an ok job, but after having such an awesome summer, it is going to be hard to go back.

My new part-time job at Dairy Queen pretty much rules. I haven't gotten to do much with the ice cream cakes yet, but I've kept busy making lots of Blizzards, waffle bowl treats, milk shakes, and other delightful dairy treats. The people I work with are really fun and honestly, I freakin' love spending a few days a week making stuff with ice cream.

As of right now, we are planning on going to the BBQ Sandwich eating contest at Myrtle Beach over Labor Day Weekend. Our Aunt Susan's new house at the beach is just too convienient of a place to pass up to stay at for free to enjoy a weekend of food and beach fun!! Jamie hasn't mentioned to me anything about trying to compete again, so we'll see what happens.

I'm also VERY excited that Krystal season is pretty much among us. The end of September is going to be here before we know it. I do have a feeling that Jamie will probably compete in a qualifier because she lives right on the outskirts of Krystal Kountry in Asheville, NC. Sadly, though, the last time I was in Asheville a few months back, I noticed that the Krystal in Asheville was closed! That means that there are no more Krystals left in North Carolina. That is down right depressing. We will have to get our fill of those delicious little burgers on our way down to Chattanooga the last weekend in September!

Well, that's about it for now.
