It's only 2 weeks, right?

I've had a little bit of a blogger block in case you haven't noticed.

Not much to report on here besides the fact that I'm still covered in blue glitter (I think my in-laws' living room will have a nice blue sparkle to it for awhile too), we got a new dishwasher (woohoo clean dishes again finally!), and my pants are starting to get a little tight. Guess that's what happens when one eats a lot of sweets and hasn't taken the time to workout in about two months.

So, realizing that hubby and I leave for ITALY two weeks from yesterday, and knowing that I'm definitely going to want to indulge in some gelato and pasta while there, I decided that between now and April 14th I'm going to forgo the cookies, brownies, ice cream, candy, cakes, etc. that have made their way into my diet over the past couple months. This is going to be HARD for a sugar addict like me! But, hopefully ya'll will help keep me accountable and two weeks from now as I'm on a plane to Italy, my scale will be back down to where it should be, my pants won't be fitting a little snug, and my tastebuds will be ready for some of the best gelato known to mankind!

Lord, please give me a LOT of willpower!


  1. good luck!! I LOVE gelato! I have fond memories of Luke and I eating it, bundled in our winter coats, with our friends who are on staff with Campus for Christ in Rome. Have an extra sample for me!

    PS I'm trying to be good with sweets, too, because we're leaving for Florida right after my graduation (3 weeks to go!) It's hard with Mandy's birthday and Easter

  2. I hope you have a super time Italy! I'm jealous :) I've never had gelato in Italy itself, but we have a new Pizzeria just up the road from us here in Atlanta and I'm officially addicted to the gelato they serve! It's fantastic! Hope you enjoy Italy!
