French Fries and Tums

Ben and I headed to my mom’s to pick up Matt and have some fun yesterday. We stopped at a burger joint on the way there to grab lunch. Ben got a burger and I ate most of our MASSIVE order of fries. When I got to my mom’s I made a salad to go with my french fry main course.

    I love it when husbands and siblings bond :) I love that sign- I really, really hate squirrels and this confirms my suspicions about their evilness.

    Bummer about dropping your camera. I recently let my soak overnight in ranch dressing. :/ Yesterday I dropped my cell and now it won’t work, then I hit a guy while pulling out of a parking spot. Ugh!

    Love fries, hate the aftermath.
