Scoop Shop

So the best part of my trip to DC? BEN AND JERRY'S SCOOP SHOP!!

I FINALLY got my hands on the new Bonnaroo Blast ice cream that I've been pining after since they sent out the email describing it. Holy cow, it was heaven in a freaking cup! It has soared to the top of my list. That second scoop in there is Chocolate Therapy, another classic. Who wouldn't love chocolate pudding in their ice cream?!

I'm once again cursing Cincinnati for so many reasons, the lack of public transportation and Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops being two things that I really hate.

Every time I travel to an urban destination it just further cements my belief that I'm not cut out to be a suburban person. I wish I could raise my child in an area where we could visit six museums every day if we wanted to and send him to the Smithsonian summer camp. I want him to be in an area with a diverse culture, surrounded by different types of people and experiences. I spent the last three days riding public transportation, within spitting distance of museums and landmarks and phenomenal restaurants, and wishing that I could transplant myself to the DC area. Or the NYC area. Or Chicago. Or Rhode Island. Or anywhere on the Northeast Corridor :(


  1. That looks delectable!

    OK, we get it, we get it, you hate Cincinnati ;) But Rhode Island, really?

  2. P.S. I need to show you where I grew up if you think Cincinnati is conservative, non-diverse, and boring!

  3. Hell, I want to go to the Smithsonian Summer Camp!
