....and so the party ends....

Yep, Mardi Gras is officially over. 

I'll be working on getting some pictures posted, but right now I'm trying to get my blood sugar back to an acceptable level.  
I have officially had my fill of King Cake and every other sinful culinary temptation in the Big Easy. 

Now begins the Lenten season.  I am not Catholic, and I'm not going to get into any religious conversations here, but in light of the PIG OUT FEST I have just gone through...and if I'm being honest, this began back at Thanksgiving, so it's been quite a "Fest" this year....I am swearing off sweets until Easter!!!  I may make an exception for my birthday in a few weeks, but other than that, I'm done...finished...kaput. 
Not a morsel of chocolate shall touch
 these lips until near the end of April. 
Oh..My...Gosh....the reality just hit chocolate...
this could get ugly. 
Consider yourself forewarned.

Anyway....I promise...Mardi Gras pictures coming soon. 
As soon as my sugar withdrawal lets up.....


  1. Glad you survived lets talk about this chocolate thing; surely when someone comes to visit an exception can be made?

  2. I have to applaud you for giving up chocolate until Easter. I couldn't give up sweets if I tried, I am a sweetaholic. Wonder if there's a self help group for that?

  3. Cute post, Shannon. I'm with the others ~~ not really sure I could give up chocolate! :( I have had a talk with myself too. I have been getting a little bit carried away with the sweets lately. Little bit? Who am I kidding?
