Does anyone else participant in Lent? It seems like this year that I am the only one doing it; and my boyfriend whom
I forced graciously offered to support me. Not only did I give up desserts, but I gave up processed foods. That means no cookies, cakes, candies or chemically enhanced, aka delicious, packaged foods. Insane right? Six days in and I’m not doing too bad. I didn’t even cheat on the cheat day (Sundays are cheat days during Lent – no lie; apparently even God needs a cheat day once in a while). The worst part was on the second day in when I had to bake brownies for a dinner with my friends and I could not even lick the spoon, or eat the crumbs when I cut them into giant squares of moist, fudgey goodness. Or maybe it was when everyone else was eating brownies topped with vanilla fudge ice cream. I made my bed though, and I will lay in it (until Easter that is – then I will make the ultimate brownie-cookie-cupcake hybrid (oh, it exists – top it with ice cream and pray about how thankful I am for it’s deliciousness).

Besides torturing and starving myself, I have also been wearing clothes. And traveling to LA. I’m averaging two trips a month so far this year, which is awesome. And costly, but mostly awesome. After we creeped around this back road behind a grocery store (that smelled of rotting meat), we went to dinner and bowling and had good times with good friends. I apparently had a little too much fun because I am covered in bruises. But for real, what’s new. I get a bruise from thinking too hard.
It was a bit windy that afternoon.
Or a lot windy.
We found a prop. As gross as this old cart was, I sat on it. And then continued to ride around in it. Come on, you would do the same!
I swear, I do not know how I am still living knowing that there are brownies and ice cream in my house. Torture.
My boyfriend thinks I’m a little wacko because I kept wanting to do this pose. I admit, it kept coming out weird, and I kept falling over before he could take the picture, but whatever. I’m trying!
Photo overload? Sorry – I love these!
So really, is anyone else doing Lent? And if so, are you torturing yourself as much as I am?
