Happy Lent

Every year I used to give up something for Lent. Actually, every time it was sweets. And it really had nothing to do with Lent, other than I could usually get someone to bet and compete against me for the six weeks. So, this year I've decided to do it again - giving up sweets. No cupcakes, cookies, candies or pies. No pudding, coffee (because mine is mostly sugar and creamer), muffins or tarts. I have given myself ONE exception to the rule and it's March 3rd (the day of Kelly Jo's baby shower in Phoenix - which I'll be at) and I can't disappoint her family but not indulging in the goodies :)

For my last hurrah, I feed my sweet tooth with a beer float (Oatmeal Stout and Skinny Dip Ice Cream). See you in six weeks, sweets!
