DEATH BY CHOCOLATE ICEBOX CAKE

This Death by Chocolate Icebox Cake was a huge hit! With layers of chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse and chocolate graham crackers all topped with chocolate sauce, you will be in a chocolate coma after eating it. 🙂

So you know what I don’t love? Jeans shopping. If I want to feel not so hot about myself, jeans shopping will surely do it. That must be why I usually wear my jeans until they start to have holes in them before I’m willing to go shopping for them again.

I did a little jeans shopping on Sunday and Monday and the experience was as expected. I tried on mountains of jeans and barely found some that actually fit. Seriously, why is it that every. single. pair. fits differently. I could try on the same size of jeans but because they’re different styles they’d all fit differently. Some big, some so small I can’t put them on.

What is up with that?

And then I find a pair that actually fits well and they come with holes in them. That’s the exact problem I was trying to get rid of to begin with. Fortunately I was able to find a couple pairs. My favorites were from Express, surprisingly enough. They fit quite well.

Then I did some shoe shopping, which I sometimes have the same problem with. I love shopping for fun shoes like heels. I could buy those babies all day long. But when looking for the basics that I wear most of the time, it’s hard to find stuff I like that fits well.

I finally walked holes right into the bottoms of my favorite flats so I had to get new ones. I literally got the same brand and size assuming they’d fit just as comfortably. Then I wore them for a little bit yesterday and already had problems with them rubbing. Grrr.
