{Happy Fat Tuesday, y'all!}

It's Fat Tuesday. While that meant a lot more in college, {lots of drink specials in downtown Athens before all of the college kids gave up drinking for Lent you see} I still find it fun! I am Baptist/Presbyterian and we do not celebrate Ash Wednesday or Lent, but I always have. I have given up caffeine{that sucked}, fried food, soda, alcholol {that REALLY sucked} and this year it will be meat. But, nothing beats the fact that in high school a girl I knew, in my youth group no less, gave up boys for lent. Can you say hoochie?!?!? But, she was allowed to make out with them on Sunday, apparantly those are Lent rules...

As my friend Erin says, I won't eat anything with feet. It will only be 40 days but I think it will be difficult. I am not a huge fan of fish and I hope I don't only eat pasta! We will see.

So, my friends, go out and celebrate Fat Tuesday. I think I need to eat a big juicy hamburger!

WOW, SUCH a good idea to give up meat! :) I may copy you... I was thinking it would be giving up processed foods, so we shall see...
Anyway, a VERY happy Fat Tuesday to you! (from a girl who usually gives up vaccuuming... haha!!)

Happy Fat Tuesday (a day late, but it still counts)! The whole boy thing that your friend gave up...totall hootch!! Yea, the Lent rules are you can have what you gave up on Sundays only, but I don't play by that either! I am really interested to see how this thing goes with me giving up red meat and bread :-) We shall see!! Good luck with your sacrificing and I cannot wait for Easter so I can eat some rolls and pit roast! LOL!
