I usually don't recongnize the lenten season. No particular reason, as an adult I just never have. We were raised Catholic as children and we wouldn't eat meat on Fridays and Dad would take us to church on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and I remember one time attending a Mass focusing on the Stations of the Cross.

This year I decided to give up Cake, Cookies, Candy and Ice Cream during the lenten season. It has now been 1 week and 3 days and I can proudly say that haven't cheated.
The Cake and Ice Cream weren't that hard to give up, it's the Cookies and Candy that is. (Especially since I have Thin Mints stilling in my freezer right now). I have had 3 days (today being one of them) that I have CRAVED sweets but haven't given in.
Doing this hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be and a plus is that I have lost 3 lbs.

I am hoping I will last until Easter Sunday and that maybe even after Easter I won't have a craving for sweets.

My Baby Holding a Baby

Last night was my monthly stamp camp and Jenny who just recently had a baby (2 weeks ago) brought her baby boy Samuel. He is so tiny, cute and a full head of dark hair.
I was able to hold and feed baby Sam which was so nice because I haven't held a baby in years. Todd took over at one point with burp duties and once the baby was all changed and cleaned up, Jordan got to hold him.
I love how Sam and Jordan are looking at each other in this picture.

I've mentioned before I love period movies so this afternoon Todd and I decided to watch a movie that has been in our DVR player for awhile.

This is a movie based on a Jane Austen novel. I have enjoyed other Jane Austen novel based movies and this one is just as enjoyable with quick wit and humor.
