      We’re buying Lady & the Tramp this week too πŸ™‚ In my fantasy the pups watch it with us, but I know they won’t.

    Would you believe I’ve never had one of these?! I guess it’s because I don’t like mint πŸ˜‰ I know, it’s totally weird…thin mints, mint chip ice cream…none of it appeals to me :/ Hope we can still be friends πŸ˜‰

      of course we can still be friends! i don’t get on anybody about different tastes! but i know that mint is my favorite flavor of all! i could live of mint choc chip ice cream if my thighs allowed πŸ™‚
