Once upon a time, I lived in Mira Mesa (a suburb of San Diego). If I had to guess, I’d say that about 6 or 7 self serve yogurt places opened up within 3 miles of our condo. This was awesome for my taste buds (but rough on my wallet and waistline)! I’d go once, twice, sometimes even three times a week and indulge in the 20+ flavors of yogurt and huge plethora of toppings.

It’s safe to say that it became quite the problem. It got to the point where I thought I was actually…sick and tired of fro-yo (i know, i know, i’m ashamed of myself for even thinking that!). I actually don’t think i’ve had fro-you since before we moved (6 months ago). I’m not even sure if I’ve even had it this year!

Don’t worry though, this story has a happy ending. I’ve been craving my long lost favorite treat, and today made the trek back out to Mira Mesa (a whole 15 minutes away, oh my! haha) to get a dose of fro-yo goodness. Granted, there is a self serve place near our new neighborhood, but it just isn’t the same…at most they might have 5 or 6 different flavors and the toppings are pretty scarce. Yogurtland was definitely worth the time and effort.

(sorry for the poor quality blackberry pic. I was ready to eat!)

Tart yogurt, blood orange tart, a splash of strawberry and just a bit of vanilla, with fruity pebbles, white chocolate and fruit to make it “healthy” (strawberries peaches, pineapples and lychee). The BF got a massive bowl and I couldn’t even keep up with all the toppings he put in it!

Yummmm. Fro-yo, i’m so sorry we’ve been apart for so long. It wasn’t you, it was me. But don’t worry, I’ll never leave you again. You + Me = US! Plus, pumpkin spice yogurt is back! I have epic visions of pumpkin spice mixed with NY cheesecake (pumpkin cheesecake!)

Not to leave anyone in the family out, Roxy (our furbaby) had a frozen treat tonight as well:

Now it’s time to rest up. I’ve been feeling exhausted and achy, which isn’t ideal two days before a 13.1 mile journey. Good night!
