Thanks to all of blogland, I realized that yesterday was the official start of lent. It’s amazing what you can learn from these little homes on the internet. I was inspired by Helene’s post of what she is not giving up for lent and Taylor’s post of what you should give up for lent, that I thought I would share my own two cents of things I know I should give up for lent but that I am absolutely not.
+ Recipes that require more than 2 sticks of butter….because is it really food if it has less than that?
+ The Bachelor….it’s so bad, but it’s so good. Can’t stop, won’t stop, don’t ever want to stop.
+ Comparing dogs to babies…still trying to decide though if there is really that much difference?
+ My inability to read…my napkins said it best with “my book club only reads wine labels”
+ Claiming I’m dying to everybody I know when I start my period…one problem though, I am.
+ Perhaps not even telling people every month when I am on my period…..but then what’s the point of having a period?
+ Forgetting that the pretty things I see on Pinterest that I all of a sudden NEED cost people money. A lot of money…..still trying to deal with the cold hard reality of this.
+ The dollar section at Target….BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW THAT I NEEDED A NEW WHISK, COLORING BOOK FOR MY NIECE, AND CHINESE TAKEOUT BOXES?!?
+ Allowing my email inbox to get to over 800 unread emails….I’m going to go ahead and just file this one under “life goals”.
+ Speeding….two tickets in one week can’t hold me down. Oh no, I’ve got to keep on movin’…..
+ Thinking I can dance….ignorance will always be bliss.
+ Checking Instagram multiple times during the night…..because what if somebody posts a picture of their midnight snack and I would miss it?!?! #thehorror
+ Posting food pictures….if it’s not documented, did I really eat it?
+ Spending enormous amounts of time on Expedia.com….and then sorting by the highest star rating and believing that my husband would be on board for even a second
+ Selfies….no explanation needed.
+ Concealer, liquid foundation, and powder foundation….one would think that I could get away with just one or two of these, but no. All three are 100% necessary.
+ Vodka….see selfie.
+ Footed Pajamas….preferably with a full zipper front, the new sexy.
+ Not letting my niece eat yogurt, 5 packs of fruit snacks, 2 juice boxes, Doritos, goldfish, girl scout cookies, and cheese while babysitting, for one hour…..uhhh, oops.
+ Taking full advantage of the “checkout with PayPal” option on websites believing my husband will never know….turns out, he does.
+ Checking my blog’s stats multiple times a day…as if it radically changes from day to day.
And the list could go on and on — tell me, what’s one thing you should be giving up for lent but are absolutely not?
