We love all of the "food holidays" because there are a ton of freebies that chain eateries offer on these holidays.

One of my favorite sites, Delish rounded up a list of freebies and deals for National Ice Cream day, and here are the ones that are more in our area.

There are so many more deals that are happening not just on cones and ice cream, but for other things related to ice cream. There's even a cool deal that Sensodyne toothpaste wants to give out.

I have been trying to be good and lose the rest of my baby weight, but once this pandemic started, I started stress eating. The thing I started stress eating the most was cookies, but since my dad is our son's primary babysitter, he likes ice cream and made sure our freezer was stocked for when he came to visit.

Now, my husband works four days in a row and is then off for four days, so if those workdays fall on a weekday, my Dad is there watching my son. So my Dad always comes over, checks the freezer for his ice cream, and if we're not stocked, he runs out to Walmart.

So, before it was the cookies that were getting to me, now it's the ice cream, and now National Ice Cream Day is this weekend, so I'm sure we'll be celebrating.
