Fat Tuesday

I tried a bite of King Cake for the first time. It came straight from Haydel's Bakery in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was so yummy! I really need my sweet tooth removed. I am taking advantage of Fat Tuesday and eating bad. It's also my friend's birthday and we're celebrating by eating Mexican for lunch.
Do you guys celebrate Lent? If so, what are you giving up for Lent this year?

Jazzercise was canceled last night due to the snow. It didn't stick, but it looked like we were stuck inside of a snow globe. So, I decided to be good and do my "30 Day Shred". I'm on Level 3 and I really feel like it's made me stronger and have more endurance when I do Jazzercise. It's a great feeling.

As I mentioned yesterday, I took Knox to the vet for his yearly check-up and he got a clean bill of health. Yay! But, what surprised me was that he now weighs 12.2 pounds. I cannot believe how big he's gotten. He's all muscle. They grow up so fast!


Dream Vacations


1. Italy with Fred - I would love to take Fred to Italy. Rome is my favorite city in the world and I think he would really enjoy the history and culture. Venice is so romantic. I've been there a few times, but never with the love of my life. I think we'd have a great time.
2. Fiji - The pictures are breathtaking of Fiji. I want to stay in a little hut over the ocean. It looks so romantic and enjoyable.


Happy Fat Tuesday, everyone!!

I'm not sure if I have ever commented on your blog, but I love reading it everyday! I am not giving anything up this year. Instead, I am going to get up 15 minutes earlier everyday and read scripture and just enjoy the silence. I usually hit snooze until I can't hit it anymore, so this will be good for me during Lent! =)
Ooh, and I would love to go to Figi someday too!
