Green

I love green.
Everything about it.
LOVE green. About the same amount I love coffee or dark chocolate.
Too bad those aren't green.
But they're brown, and brown goes well with green so it's okay.

About once a week or so we go to Sonic for a Happy Hour slush.
My kids decided a few months ago that they wanted green slushes, but Sonic doesn't offer one.


So we came up with the perfect way to order one.
You order a slush with Orange and Blue Powerade.
And guess what you get?

Green!
Yummy slimy Shrek green.

My kids call it a Shrek slush. And they're hooked on it.
I order a Rt. 44 Diet Coke with extra cherry.


Mommy caffeine plus kids' green slushes equals a very happy hour.

We JUST got a Sonic in the town I grew up in about two months ago. It STILL is lined up out on the street and it's ALWAYS jam packed! I love those slushies and a Dr. Pepper with cherry....yummo!

Since they took away our Mango Limeades, I've been ordering Apple Limeades....Not quite as good as the mango, but it does do me well -- at least until they hopefully bring back the mango limeades. Can I wait until next summer for that? I'm not so sure....

Green is my favorite color, too! And, you add a bit of slushy on top of that.... you've got a delicious combo!

rentz said...

Thanks a lot...now I'm going to have to go there this afternoon. Cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper for me...or cherry limeade...or lemon-berry slush. Can hardly go wrong.

Except the mango flavor. Sarah above here, I know you said you like it. But, oh my. I thought it tasted a little like B.O. Not that I've ever tried B.O. But you know how things taste like they smell...hope I don't ruin it for you.

Wow. I am wordy today.

Green is my favorite color also! I too love love love dark chocolate! Are we long lost sisters???

Sara said...

I miss Sonic - used to get those cheese filled potatoes every morning on the way to work...

Jody said...

Happy Hour at Sonic is the best-no doubt about it :-)

Wendy said...

They finally put in a Sonic 'near' me. It's about 45 minutes away. I've never had Sonic, yet I crave it regularly. Stupid Sonic.

Hillarious! Our kids LOVE Sonic...only it's 30 minutes away, so we don't get there very often...but we will remember this!!

A.Love said...

HOW CREATIVE!! Problem solved!! :) And it IS Shrek green!! :)

emtdlb said...

I totally agree with the coffee and dark chocolate. My daughter loves slushes and my son loves green. We haven't tried the green slushes, will have to though. Great idea. First time on your blog. Love your stuff and take on life. By the way, are you in the Springfield area???? I noticed Lamberts and SDC in earlier posts. I live in Nixa. Cool to know you may be close. Neat stuff. Have a great day!!!!!

I thought the green apple ones were green. Mixing colors together is much cooler- and yes, happy hour at Sonic is the best! I love seeing the red mouths that get out of my car when we get home from SHH (Sonic Happy Hour)
