Lent

I can't think of any cute or funny way to do this post, so I am just going to say it. It's Lent and this year I am giving up candy and most treats. I say most treats because I will have the occasionally treat when I attend a party, church activity, or book club. Because that is one of my biggest pet peeves-when people come to parties and don't eat anything. Hello?!? I spent all day cooking that deliciousness and you don't even partake of it?!? Not right.
I would say wish me luck, but I don't need it. I am not going to lose this challenge. The only thing I might end up losing are pounds. ;)

I used to do Lent, too. One year was diet coke, another was shopping, another was probably diet coke again. Hate it. Glad I'm not catholic!

Good for you! But giving up Watermelons and Reese's Eggs? I think that is just tragic. :)

I should learn from your example and try to give up something - maybe next year...

I'm a candy freak. I should join you, but I probably won't. ;) That's a good idea to eat at book club and such... I felt so awkward when I wasn't eating treats and I'd be somewhere with people. I tried to be as discreet as possible, but I still ended up feeling self-righteous. Ugh.

I am one of those annoying people that give up treats at parties! Haha But believe me it is all worth it!

You go girl. You have way more self control then I do. And of course you can't give up treats at book club. Way too much good food there!

You're better than me! I don't know if I could give up candy AND chocolate for that long. Good luck!

Still doing your lent tradition, eh? I always thought it was funny for a Mormon to practice a Catholic tradition. Oh, well, whatever motivates you to do your best, right? I'm glad you will at least partake in social goodies. I think that is a good balance.

I don't know how in the world you can say that while looking at all that candy on your blog! The reeses egg alone would make me cave!
