Yesterday I blew my "no sweets until Easter" fast. Two (!) glazed doughnuts, and then later my m-i-l made a lemon cake...I really didn't have a chance. Tonight there will be wedding cake--let's just face it, it's over. I hope God understands. At least I didn't cheat at all before that. It was a good thing to do even though I didn't feel more spiritual (I wonder why that is?) I'm going to try to stop eating sweets on a daily basis and wait for special occasions. Cake is definitely a special occasion.

I was starting to feel kind of housebound since while we're in Louisiana my husband works all the time and I don't have any errands to run or friends to visit. So yesterday I went shopping, ostensibly for a gift for the aforementioned wedding, and stayed gone for 2 1/2 hours--mostly in Target, but also in Ross, Marshalls, and Bed Bath & Beyond. I got a nice present and bought myself a VERY cute denim skirt. For $16, when the one I had been looking at, at Banana Republic, was $60. Score! I didn't feel tempted to buy other stuff even though I looked at everything. I just love having some time to look around without having to deal with hyper kids.

If I don't get to post until after the weekend, (we'll be traveling tomorrow), I wish you all a happy and blessed Easter.


  1. Congrats on your fabulous skirt! I'm glad you found the perfect one, and now the weather is getting warm enough to actually wear it, YAY!! Have a great weekend.

  2. I love great finds like that. You feel such a sense of accomplishment!
