And I'm back in the game....
Ok, I'm going to try this blog thing again. Although I will never be at K's blog status, I am at least going to try and post now and again and especially when I bake something...well at least I think for now.
So let's just pretend it hasn't been oh a year since my last post :) Anyways, if you know me at all you know that I clearly love sweets/desserts/things filled with sugar/brown sugar from the bag (you get my point)! I could literally eat desserts for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and would just deal with the upset stomach (It's totally worth it). So for Lent I decided to give up sweets/desserts (all of it...yikes!) AND peanut butter (my other huge weakness) to prove to myself and my handsome hubby that I am capable of having some self control. I have made it 42 days so far, and I only have 5 days left! This has been painful as desserts are pretty much like a drug to me (but seriously...hee hee!). As you can imagine I am SO looking forward to eating something amazing at midnight on Saturday (Insert husband's Easter basket of surprises)!
The whole lent time has not been easy. We had a "free dessert day" in the lobby at work, multiple people's birthdays (cakes included), a cupcake truck conveniently stopping next to my work on a weekly basis, Employee Appreciation Day, my husband eating various gallons of ice cream on the couch, baking for a LL baseball team, and I even went back home and had to watch as my family ate every sweet I grew up loving. One last hurdle (hoping only 1) I will have to conquer this week is baking for my boss and co worker's birthday on Thursday. I'm currently planning on S'mores brownies (I mean I bought a new broiler pan and all)....what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger right? hahah I mean it is just dessert and I am just a little sugar deprived right?
