Well shut my mouth and fry me up a twinkie!

I really didn't think he'd do it. He's been on a health kick for a while now and was none to pleased when I asked for it. I think he rolled his eyes every time I mentioned it and at one point even insisted that I could not have it.

In the end he either wanted to make me happy, or really had no other idea for what to get me. I tend to think it was the latter, but either way I'm super happy! And I can now fry twinkies, or corn dogs, or tater tots, or hot wings, or mozzarella sticks! I can fry what ever I want!

This is my super duper new fryer that Scott gave me for my birthday! Mine is black but I can't find any pictures of it online and I'm too lazy to get up, find the camera, take a photo then put it on the laptop...

He also bought me whole carton of twinkies! We are so frying those up tomorrow!

So, yes, now I can fry to my hearts content. Perhaps not the best thing for a person who can't make it to the gym for another eight weeks or so, but it still makes me happy!

It was a great day in all. I'm not exactly pleased to be older, but today I don't feel as off kilter or bitter about it as I have on other days. Plus we got to have good southern food at the Delta Cafe for dinner and now I can try to fry up my own at home!

The girls at work took me out for lunch, and I got a few presents. It was a good day.

I've also done a lot more thinking about this vacation thing, and really appreciate all the advice. I think you're all right. We should take a vacation because you can't wait for life to happen. You have to make it happen and work around things as the come up! So vacation planning has commenced. I don't know when or where we'll go, but I can at least dream freely now!

Happy Birthday! I've never had a twinkie but my husband says a that he'd love to eat a deep fried one.

I'd love to own a fryer, I'd never use it (I'm always on a diet) but I'd love the comfort of having one in the house just in case!

Stacey said...

Glad you had a nice birthday! Happy frying! (Are you sure you don't live in the South?) :)

Can't wait to hear your vacation plans...

Stacie said...

What a cool gift! So have you fried any twinkies yet? How were they?

Baby vs vacation is a hard decision. I am glad that you decided to go the vacation route. Have fun planning!


Missy said...

Happy birthday! Have fun frying to your heart's content.

You are my husband's long-lost soul mate. He will fry anything that stands still long enough for him to batter it and drop it in the grease! We just invested in an outside fish fryer -- and have fried pickles, onion rings, hot dogs, and doughnuts so far.

I've seen your fryer at the store -- your hubby invested in a high-end appliance, there! You are a lucky girl.

Hope your day was as wonderful as you are.


nancy said...

lol. Your introduction of the fryer made me giggle.

Happy birthday and congrats on a present that makes you so happy!

Nina said...

Happy Birthday! I'm a fryer at heart too. ICLW

Happy Belated Birthday!
It sounds like it was a great one. I hope your fryer has already had a workout frying up yummy deliciousness.
Hope the vacation planning works out. Vacations can be a lifesaver.
Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

We have Angel Wings said...

I laughed out loud when I read the title of your post! I have never had a fried twinkie, and I do have a frier. I just might have to try one.

Happy belated birthday and here's to many more great years!

It's better that yours is store bought than my friend who got his at a garage sale. He is the one who introduced me to frying twinkies. Never heard of it before.
Happy bday
