So Here's the Deal...

I've had the biggest sweet tooth lately, to the point that I'm spending roughly $15 a week on frozen yogurt and chocolate. Ridiculous I know... But phew, it feels good to admit it.

So how will I combat this obsession? Well, I will not be conquering this struggle alone.

My dear friend Hayley and I give up sweets together every year for lent. This dates all the way back to sophomore or junior year of high school.

How appropriate that we're both eating cake in this photo...Sorry we look horrendous!

Some of you may be thinking that foregoing the same thing every year is not a sacrifice, but if you have the slightest knack for candy, frozen yogurt, cake, etc., you'll clearly understand it's a struggle. Because our wallets and waistlines are unappreciative of our infatuation, we've decided to give up our favorite things a few weeks early. So starting February 15, Hayley and I will encourage one another to skip the sweets... Anyone wish to join us?

Here we are at Chi Omega big/lil reveal 2011!

Promise, we're both friendly and would love to encourage you too! I'm sure we'll both be blogging about our trials and victories during this no-sweets period. Any takers...?

Happy Monday! Xo


  1. Tempting, but too big of a commitment. I CAN however commit to reading about YOUR adventure : )

  2. My sweet tooth has been CRAZY lately too! What's the deal?!! haha

    But, no way I can stop sweet. They are my FAVORITE! Good luck to you!

  3. I think my head would explode with no sweets, but huge kudos! I just did a whole month with no alcohol, so I think I'm good on the detoxs. Can't wait to hear how it goes!
