Women vs. Food


Not being ones to accept defeat, this morning’s mission had us back at Chick and Ruth’s in Annapolis to take on the Colossal 6lb Milkshake. The chocolate milkshake didn’t stand a chance against us. The defender pictured above. The challengers:

In order of appearance: Pam “Don’t Mess With Me, I’m From Pittsburgh”101, Spice aka The Reinforcement, and Diana “If a Milkshake Had an Ass I’d Kick It.”

We started out strong, confidant that between the three of us 6 pounds of Milkshake would be a walk in the park (or a couple of hours on the treadmill). Armed with breakfast, our strategy was “Sip, Sip, Pass.”


Halfway through and our confidence remained strong, our determination unwavering…


Going, Going….




The last frothy bits were scooped straight from the chalice. Victory was ours, and it was…..well…uneventful really. I expected confetti and balloons, or at least a few slow claps from the peanut gallery, but really it was just us girls cracking up and realizing that maybe this isn’t something you really should be proud of.

Nah! We’re totally proud. And the little kids at the surrounding tables definitely want to grow up to be just like us now.

I mean, who wouldn’t. Hope your weekend has been equally as successful 🙂

You Scream, I Scream

Remember way back in April of 2010 when I made my 16 in 6 list – things I wanted to do in the next 6 months. Well, I know it has been more than 6 months, but today I was able to cross out # 14: Get the giant milkshake at Chick and Ruth’s. Better late than never!

It’s called the Colossal Shake from Chick and Ruth’s Delly in downtown Annapolis. And when I say GIANT milkshake, I mean 6 pounds…yes pounds…of ice cream in a trophy sized glass. Exhibit A:

My partner in crime for this important mission was none other than the always-up-for-an-adventure Pam101. Exhibit B:

Notice how we actually had to stand up in order to reach the straws! This baby was huge. We went with a classic vanilla shake, and didn’t really think we’d finish it – our goal was to finish half. I say we finished more than half, 4 pounds would be my estimate. But there comes a point in everyone’s life when they just have to bow down to a giant 6lb milkshake and say, “Ok shake, you win.” Exhibit C:

Well, maybe not in EVERYONE’S life, but you get the picture. Speaking of pictures, since Pam101 is the resident photog, check out her blog for more pictures of our milkshake adventure (and our entire Annapolis Adventure) and learn how we set the trend at Chick and Ruth’s today.

Now please pass me a tums.
