Woot Woot…Friday is here?! Wow…this was a fast week but I had a ton going on! The tasting at Fion’s, Keith’s birthday, and then some mucho birthday celebrating tomorrow night! Oh Sunday’s post will be F-U-N!! I also managed to squeeze in body pump on Tuesday an Thursday…so today…um…hello entire body! Sheesh…I went up on all my weights and I am feeling it big time. Pick a muscle, any muslce…yeah they all ache! But ache in that “hurt so good” kind of way! πŸ™‚ This morning I just finished up a 10 mile feel good run (7.0 @ 1% incline)Β and will be meeting my running group later for a lake run! LOVE THOSE!

Last night, as promised, I got Keith his mint chocolate chip ice cream cake! He was SO excited. Even more excited that he gets to eat the WHOLE thing! haha! I know I have addressed this via twitter but for those of you who don’t know…I personally find the combination of mint and chocolate to be N-A-S-T-Y! So eat your heart out baby!! haha! πŸ™‚

Happy Birthday Keith
Blowing out the candles…wonder what he wished for?
Keith’s little slice of heaven!

Do you think it is weird that I don’t like chocolate and mint? What flavor combination do you not like that most people do?

  1. Such a cute, yummy cake! I love mint and chocolate, but my hubby hates it! I can understand the dislike!

  2. I don’t like chocolate and mint either!!

  3. I like mint, I love chocolate, but I hate the combination!

  4. I dont like chocolate and raspberry, I love them both separate but can’t stand them together!

  5. Mint and chocolate is a favorite combo of mine!

    My husband hates it!

  6. I’m not a huge mint chocolate fan either…I don’t hate it, but I’ll ususally choose something else over it, when given the choice.

    Happy Friday!!!! Sounds like you have a great weekend planned!

  7. Yes, I think you’re weird for not liking that combo!

    I don’t like chocolate with fruit flavors, orange, raspberry, YUCK!

  8. OMG mint chocolate? Are me and Keith one in the same?
    I think I will accept any and every flavor combo

  9. I don’t like mint and chocolate together either. I also don’t like chocolate mixed with any kind of fruit or fruit flavor. Gross.

    I don’t like ice cream or cake or frosting. Most people can’t fathom any of that.

  10. I kind of like it when my muscles hurt like that too. I KNOW I worked hard. Everyone has such different tastes that I don’t think it’s weird at all. I don’t even like chocolate so how weird is that one??!!

  11. yeah not really a fan of chocolate and raspberry either…

  12. Yum that cake looks delicious! I love chocolate and mint! You’re such a good wife for getting him a yummy cake that you don’t even get to share πŸ™‚

    It’s not a flavor combination, but I don’t like coconut and I’ve been seeing it all over everyone’s blogs – in recipes that look so good until I realize they have coconut!

  13. Believe it or not, I don’t like MINT at all! I don’t even buy mint toothpaste. I will take an Altoid every once in a while, but can only handle it for about 30 seconds. I do like chocolate with literally anything tho, except mint of course πŸ™‚ Happy Friday!

  14. Oh my… I LOVE the combination. Andes mints are the best thing ever. But everyone’s different in their tastes… I don’t think you’re weird at all. At least it keeps you away from the Thin Mints, right? πŸ˜‰

  15. I hate chocolate and mint!! So glad you agree πŸ™‚

  16. I don’t think it’s weird. I don’t get into peanut butter like most of the Internet world does. I OD on it and then lose my love for it, so yep. That didn’t really answer your question.

    Looks like you did Keith’s birthday right!

  17. I love chocolate and mint. But I won’t hold it against you. I don’t like ice cream. I think that might be weirder.

  18. I hate the chocolate and mint combo too. I worked at an ice cream shop in high school and all the other girls working thought it was so crazy. A friend of mine loves PB and loves chocolate but hates them together, which I could not fathom!

  19. I HATE chocolate and mint. I have never understood it myself. We always had that ice cream growing up, yucky.

    I also do not like chocolate and strawberries; I like both but not together!

  20. Keith is one LUCKY guy!! Haha – I think the combination of chocolate + anything is nasty. Never liked it… never will. But I think I would have gotten myself one of the mini ice cream cakes just for me πŸ˜€

    p.s. Congratulations btw on all the work that finally has come to fruition at Fion!

    p.P.s. I might take an internship working with a company combating…. CHILDHOOD OBESITY!! Not only children though – they’re a non-prof that works with a big range of people in the community who have been faced road barriers, either through lack of education or lack of resources, to reaching a healthy lifestyle. Not a sure thing yet.. but I’m excited!

  21. Mmm chocolate and mint, thin mints? Some girl scouts tricked me into buying some this weekend.

  22. I love chocolate mint! It’s the one combination I cannot resist! It can be ice cream, cookies, chocolate….cake…anything! I want it πŸ™‚


    That cake looks freaking awesome. I love mint’n chocolate together. I actually despise peanut butter and chocolate together. Every one thinks that’s strange. uhgueghhhhhh….eww.

    Oh I love the aching post-workout. I have that today, from the cycle class I did last night. Feels goooood.

    Also? Want to know what’s funny? Anytime I’m on the treadmill I’m wondering how fast you’re going “next” to me. I usually run at a 0% incline since I’m a wuss, but I start at the speed 6.0, which I suppose is a 10:00/mile. Then as I’m warmed up I try to go faster, just to break up the monotony of going at one pace, and sometimes I go as fast as you do for your long runs (But I go for like a minute LOL). I can’t imagine your stamina and endurance. I LOVE it. I’m like “She goes this fast for XX miles? Owww!!!”

  24. You may have talked about this before and I’m just completely missing it, but are you training for something right now Kelly?

  25. I don’t think it’s weird. I personally don’t like orange and chocolate and everybody else seems to think those Chocolate oranges are devine. Not me!

  26. I can understand the not liking of chocolate and mint even though I do actually like it. What I hate that everyone else seems to like is nuts! Yuck, yuck, yuck!

  27. Don’t hate me but chocolate and peanut butter. I know, I’m weird. Glad Keith had a great birthday, can’t wait to hear about more surprises on sunday!

  28. I don’t like mint at all so I don’t like mint + chocolate either πŸ™‚

  29. I’m not that big on mint in general but I love those soft chocolate ande’s mints. As for mint chocolate chip ice cream though, it’s not really something I would buy for myself. It makes me feel like I’m ineffectively brushing my teeth or something. lol

  30. I love mint and chocolate!! Its ok that you dont, more for me!! However I dont like chocolate things with mint creme fillings…. just mint flavored chocolate.

    I dont like the combo of orange and chocolate. Those chocolate oranges look so fun but I dont like them. They do have a chocolate mint flavor one though. Yay for me!

    Have a great Friday!!!

  31. My boyfriend is the same way. He can’t stand the combination of mint and chocolate (except in Girl Scout’s Thin Mints) but I absolutely LOVE the combo! πŸ™‚

  32. This is not really a combo, but I hate ketchup. I eat tomatoes all the time but I cannot stand ketchup. So many people put them on eggs and whatnot but I could never do that.

  33. Happy Birthday to Keith!

    I don’t like anything that’s a sweet/savory combination especially meat with a sweet sauce. Bleh.

  34. Mmm I LOVE mint and chocolate together!!

    I cant think of a flavor combination I dont like that everyone else does. I dont like peppers though. I think Im the only person in the world, but I dont like them. Not red peppers, or green peppers, or yellow or orange. None of them. Even the texture bothers me. And mushrooms. Cant eat those either.

  35. I don’t like mint and chocolate together either. The mint is just too strong and overtakes the chocolate. And when I have chocolate I want to taste the CHOCOLATE! πŸ˜€

    Two runs in one day? You are a crazy woman!

  36. I dont like mint and chocolate together either! Tastes like brushing your teeth and biting into a chocolate bar…blech πŸ™‚

  37. Oh that cake looks incredible!! I love mint and chocolate together!! I can’t think of any flavor combinations I don’t like… hmmm…

    Happy Friday!! πŸ™‚

  38. Yes, I think you’re weird. πŸ˜› Crazy even! I have a hard time picking my favorite combo with chocolate – it’s a toss up between peanut butter and mint.

  39. great workouts!!! I was so bad this week lol omg, you don’t like chocolate and mint?! holy moly that and peanut butter are my absolute favs πŸ™‚ Good thing I wasn’t there because that cake looks amazing! Have a good weekend!

  40. […] Woot Woot!! It has been a weekend long process. On Thursday (his actual birthday) he got his cake and then on Friday he got to open his gifts! In honor of being 40 he got 40 […]

  41. honestly…i’m weird that I don’t like chocolate. period. so, i would take mint ice cream over mint chocolate chip any day.

    Glad Keith got his bday cake all to him self!

  42. Mint/Chocolate is one of my faves! That said, I’ve never understood strawberry/banana. I love both fruits separately, but not the combo.
