Happy Fat Tuesday all!
Tonight we will have gumbo and king cake and drinks (no hurricanes) Tomorrow I will give up cursing for the 40 days of Lent.

Do any of you celebrate Fat Tuesday? Give anything up for Lent? I used to go get the ashes on Ash Wednesday but I haven't been to church in a very long time.

I like to celebrate anytime there is a reason to and Mardi Gras has always been one of my favorites, maybe someday I will even make it to New Orleans.

So as they say "Laissez les bon temps rouler!"

Happy Fat Tuesday, advice.only!!! I plan to have blueberry pancakes for dinner. Nom nom nom...

I am NOT Catholic, but have always tried to give up something for Lent. NOT THIS YEAR.

My goal this year is to START something. I bought myself a gym membership for my birthday and I want to get INTO the habit of working out.

Let the good times roll, indeed!

That was mine too, but every other day I do my three miles and lift my weights and I figure at some point the fat just has to give up the fight. LOL.

I wish I was celebrating! I love me some seafood gumbo and hurricanes! And King cake. Pretty much everything New Orleans.

You have to go someday, it's my favorite place!

You and moi both, Julie!

DH and I have been to Mardi Gras 3 times and hope to make it again before we don our pine overcoats. Acme Oysters, Cafe du Monde, the Hand Grenade, the parades, the street performers.... Simply heaven!

Been on the diet - down a bunch - but I will have exactly 2 pancakes and a wee bit of syrup for dinner before I head to the gym. I think I need to ADD something for Lent. Not Catholic anymore, but it's pretty ingrained in me. LOL

ETA: Just thought of what my "challenge" is for Lent. Wink

Giving up alcohol (I think?) for lent. Whew. Have been really fatigued from giving up the sugar. I love my Chardonnay at nights after work, and on the weekend and out with friends...

Now, just a happy teetoler for the next 40 some days (and nights).
