    that is how i felt when i set up just dance 2 with my daughter, and the first song that came on was "big girl". nice! oh well- bet that sundae was good!

  5. Too funny! Thank you for the giggle!

  6. Thelittlebrownhouse.us says

    I feel certain the song was referring to the person who gave you the sundae – not you. At least that is how I would take it….:)

  7. Susan I am laughing so hard!!! You have to go and read my blog post for today and Make sure you read the comment that Delores wrote. You will see how your post has similarities to my post. I think I came up with a remedy for Fat Bottom Girls!lol Kathysue

  8. Giggle is right! Nice…

  9. Cat & Cricket says

    Ok.. I am soooo laughing my butt off right now.. that would be my luck! But hey… did it taste good?

  10. Ok, nice story, but it didn't end with as good of an ending as it should have…the rest was: come home with some great PB furniture at a killer price to go in the most awesome new office. How's that? Fat Bottom Girls was meant for the people in line behind you. ;O)

  11. AntiqueChase says

  22. Oh my gosh! That's hilarious! I am still laughing!
    I bet that Sundae was delicious though!

  23. Hello Susan,
    the story made me laugh, too. So is life. I am sure, you have also busy days without possibility to eat a real meal. So, don't feel affected by the song. t didn't ment you!
    Greetings, Johanna

  24. Just remember – "Fat bottom girls" is followed by "make the rockin' world go round!" πŸ™‚

  25. Just remember – the next words after "Fat bottom girls" is "makes the rockin' world go round"! πŸ™‚

  26. Love Being a Nonny says

    Too funny!!!!! Who cares? Just eat and sing along with them!

  27. Kathy Martin says

    LOL! If I remember correctly, fat bottom girl's make the rockin' world go round! πŸ˜‰

  28. Love a post that makes me laugh…out loud! Thanks!!

  29. Sounds like a perfect ending to a perfect day! I am sure that while you were burning up a bajillion calories doing your walking and shopping, you countered any calories in that sundae! The song was referring to the rears of others. But of course I have to share a conversation with my sister from a few years ago.
    Sister: I hate having cellulite.
    Me: Thank goodness I don't have trouble with that.
    Sister: Really? When's the last time you looked at your backside?

  30. I just love your thought process…lol…..so cute. Now I want a brownie sundae.

  31. Susan, this just cracked me up! But I bet that sundae was worth it πŸ™‚ Kat

  32. hmmm…i thought chocolate was one of the food groups!
    btw, love your new header.

  33. Modern Country Lady says

    hahaha excellent.Life is for living!! Stuff diets! Hahahaha

  34. Nah…no calories when you get it the drive through!

    TCBY? I don't think we have those anymore. I have to see!

    Have a good Sunday!

  35. Loved this post. Brought a smile.

  36. ha, ha! That made me chuckle out loud.

  37. ha ha ha ha ha That was a good one, Susan. Have a good Sunday (not sundae…ha ha ha) Susan

  38. Glenda/MidSouth says

  39. S. Ferguson says

    BTW — love, love, love your blog! Only wish I lived closer to some of your favorite stores!


  40. Susan, thanks for my laugh for the day! Too funny!

  41. On Crooked Creek says

    Dear Susan,
    Didn't you know that a "Fudge Brownie Sundae" was a decorator's delight. . .the power boost you need for enthusiam, inspiration and creativity? ? ?Haven't heard the song, but I'd say you're on the right track with TWO trips to Pottery Barn! You might want to check out Ballard Designs as well. . . http://www.ballarddesigns.com

  42. Ha! great song! Great post! Now I'm hungry…


  43. LOL Susan. Didn't you know that the calories spent shopping cancel out the sundae? Anyway, the experts say chocolate is good for you!!

  44. Hahaha…timing is everything.

  45. Mid-Atlantic Martha says

    Too funny!

  46. ahahahahahahahahah…Id eat Sunday anyway…ahahahahahahah

  47. Designs By Pinky says

    Susan, NOT TO WORRY!!! Shopping burns WAAAY more calories than a chocolate dripping sundae!!!!!!!!! Besides, you deserve it!!!!! (I tell myself that all the time:):):) XO, Pinky

  48. Grammy Goodwill says

    hahaha – love the story. Thanks for being so real.

  49. Sounds like a great day to me!!! Do like me and worry about the "fat bottom" tomorrow..there's always tomorrow! Ha!

  50. That is funny!
    But I'm still struck by the lovely description of the beautiful sundae…

  51. Hi Susan,

    Everyone deserves a hot fudge sundae every now and then. Besides you had already walked off all of the calories. Enjoy it guilt free. Life is short…eat dessert first.


  52. Handy Man, Crafty Woman says

    LOL !!!

  53. Thanks for the giggle and thoughts to ponder Susan. I sure hope you didn't give it too much thought until after you finished the sundae. You sure wouldn't want to waste good chocolate!

  54. Billie Ross says
