Lent Begins

Every year for as many years as I can remember, I have given up sweets for lent. Yes, I realize it is unoriginal, but I love nothing more than sweets, so it seems only fair. Now that the fun of Mardi Gras has ended and lent has started, I figured I would share one of my lent stories with you.

Two years ago I was keeping with tradition of giving up sweets, however, that particular year, I decided to give myself a loophole. I specified “candy,” not “sweets.” What does that exactly mean? Well, according to my definition, candy comes in a wrapper, anything else, fair game. What a mistake. My sweet tooth was still in full swing those first few days. I felt like I had no control. All I wanted was candy. Candy. Candy. But I wanted to stay true. So I ate freshly baked cookies (see, not in a wrapper), frosting, whipped cream, even ate around some questionably moldy cake. Totally defeats the purpose, right? My loophole backfired. So last year I went back to giving up all sweets and it was really tough those first few days, but it was much easier by day 10. So wish me luck! Hopefully I have some self control.


RIP candy for the next 40 days.

    • Thank you Alecz! It is always tough like the 3rd and 4th day. I feel a little nutso with my csugar cravings ahah! Also the dress is only $15! A total steal~

  1. Best of luck to you! I tried this twice and failed miserably both times. My birthday is during lent and it’s just too hard not to have cake! Loving the longer cardigan with your dress! Thanks so much for stopping by!
