The date // Custard!
The place // Jimmie Cone
The choice // Vanilla with rainbow jimmies for her, chocolate/vanilla swirl with chocolate jimmies for him.

This weekend we saw our first 80 degree days of the year… the perfect spring kind without humidity or thundering rain. On Sunday, we wandered around our beautiful little town, bought some records, ate dinner outside, and took our first trip to Jimmie Cone (a local institution that’s packed from April to October every year).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I just don’t know how I ever lived before there was custard in my life.

And I’m so glad the cold winter is gone…

    I’ve never even had frozen custard! Maybe that’s a new business idea for the South

      Seriously!! It’s so amazing, I can’t even believe we didn’t grow up with it in Oregon. It should be everywhere!

    Wait…so is custard different from frozen yogurt?? Because now I want to try custard! Plus, ice cream dates are the best! And oh, this past weekend was gorgeous – glad you guys made the best out of it!

      It’s so different!! I dare even say it may be the opposite — it’s so creamy and thick and amazing. You have to find some!

    Omg. Those cones? LOVE. You guys are adorable! And you know, I think I’ve only had custard once or twice in my life. The frozen yogurt abounds in Houston, but apparently I am going to have to hunt down the custard! Totally inspired for my next date now 🙂
