oreo milkshakes = true love.

this is the picture of true love. 
[true love for the item in the picture and for the man that bought it for me.
true love squared if you will.]

last week, and now pouring over into this week, has been really hard motherhood-wise.
i've had quite a few breakdowns including crying during playgroup and in the middle of a Costco aisle.

and when i start getting emotional, i crave junk food like it's my job.
i'm a hardcore emotional eater.
{as in... we have 3 kinds of Oreos in our pantry right now as we speak. plus more cream filled treats i shouldn't even admit to having... and they are all at least half empty. and we just bought them.}

Adam knows this about me, bless his heart, and sweetly speaks my sugar-loving love language.
Saturday night he had to run to the store for some quick groceries before Sunday and brought me back a package of cookie dough. "i got this for you because i thought you'd like to eat it," he says to me.
uh, heck yeah!!
that blessed man. 

then tonight [Monday], after he had to go to the school to study before helping me put Elijah to bed, who was being Terrible with a capital T today and i was ready to pull.my.hair.out., he brought me an Oreo milkshake.
a very large Oreo milkshake.

this guy gets me.
what a good, good man that Adam is.
and i'm reminded constantly of his true amazing-ness.

truest of love indeed.

how do you deal with stress?? do you eat junk like me? :)

I'm not a fan of Jack in the box...except for their Oreo shakes! I swear if you could taste heaven through a straw, it would taste like a big fat JITB oreo shake with whip (no cherry for me!) Hope it made you forget about the rough day...even for just a few minutes. xoxo

Somehow I need to get my husband speaking this language with me! At least he lets me buy all that delicious junk for myself, even if he hasn't yet brought me any milkshakes. :)

That's so amazing! What a great husband! (: I crochet my stress away, well... it doesn't go away, but crocheting helps me think about the things that are stressing me out. I also like to watch teen mom! HA! (:
