Farewell, My Sweet

Today is Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, the day before Lent begins. After great thought, I have decided to give up my current vice for Lent. So, today is the last day that I can consume...


That's right, I have decided to give up the yummy-yummy, melt-in-your-mouth goodness that is Krispy Kreme doughnuts.


Since today is my last day to have these wonderful round pieces of Heaven for the next forty days, I made a stop at the KK drive-thru on my way home from taking Emily to school.

My sweet Katie is also a HUGE fan of these fabulous sweet treats, so of course she had one for breakfast, too.


Katie really loves her Krispy Kreme donuts. I feel a bit bad that because I am giving KK up for Lent she is not going to be able to have any during Lent either. But, I'm certainly not going to temp myself by bringing donuts into the house. Sorry, Katie!


Goodbye, my beloved Krispy Kreme. I'll see you on Easter Sunday.

WOW - that is impressive and that is what we call SACRIFICE, Ladies and Gents. Great, now I have to come up with a good sacrifice for Lent too...between you and Karen you'll keep me on my Catholic toes!

I still haven't decided what I am giving up for Lent this year. The computer would be a HUGE sacrafice, but then I wouldn't win the blogging challenge, and I think God realizes how important it is that I do that, and He'll let me slide on that one. Now... what to give up... what to give up.... Hmm...

I'm still struggling on what to give up myself. I'm running out of time! I have a few ideas so I'll just have to make a decision tonight and post it so I can be accountable for it.
