I've Done a Bad, Bad Thing (or in the words of Napoleon Dynamite ... "Get yer own tots.")

First things first ... this is my only picture from last night. Long story. The girls had a great time on the fun jumps. K Belle has mastered the mechanical bull and the rock wall. La Petite Belle loved riding the ponies and of course, the fireworks were outstanding. You can see the new haircut. It really doesn't look that much different, but I've got a lot more red and a darker brown underneath.
We had all eaten a hot dog earlier in the evening and by the time the event was over and we were heading home, we decided to make our annual after-the-fireworks run to Sonic for a little treat. If you don't live near a Sonic, poor you. Queen B and I share a love for this particular fast food chain, and crave their fabulous variety of drinks. For some reason, I was really hungry and was wanting some major junk food, not just ice cream. 

So, here's the bad, bad thing:

10:30 p.m. + Sonic = TROUBLE

Fried onion rings + Tater tots = NOT SO BAD

Fried onion rings + Tater tots + Fried cheesecake bites = DELIGHTFUL MISERY
I decided this would be the night I try the cheesecake bites. They were to die for, but I could only eat two of them because they were so rich. You must try them at least once. 

Beau and I split the onion rings and the entire family fought over the tater tots. I gotta have my tots! I actually prefer them smothered in chili and cheese, but sometimes I'm a naturalist.

We have a Sonic close - the kids and I like to go there, but hubs does not! Love their drinks and their tots!

First off, your title is genius.

And the picture of the Sonic junk food that you posted? My weakness...all of it. Especially the tots and rings. Who can resist such lovely fried goodness, even at 10:30 at night?

Your hair is so cute! Post a close-up picture of it if you can...I want to see the highlights. :)

I miss Sonic SO much! I didn't know it until I read your post LOL. We had one right down the street from us in Las Vegas. When we moved up to Minnesota earlier this year, we gave up a lot of great restaurants and Sonic was one of them. Those tatertots got me through my entire 2nd pregnancy!! Oh and thanks for stopping by :) Nice to meet you too!

Oh how I wish I hadn't read your post tonight. It is 11:30pm and I am hungry. That just made it worse. I'm trying hard not to eat anything else after supper. Oh well, we'll see what kind of will power I have tonight. Anyway, that is a great picture of you and your girls. You all look so great.
