FAT Tuesday

I say FAT literally....McD's double cheeseburger, large fries, sweet tea, birthday cake and the day isn't even half way over!!! If I am fasting all day tomorrow (well kinda) then I must stuff myself to the max today right?? Ok ok...my obligations to Lent have changed a bit. But I have a great reason...I think. So I am still giving up sweet tea and all soda, but I am not ready to give up beer. I know this sounds horrible and many of you are asking "Why not give up beer too"? Well, our trip to Vegas(b/c beer is alot cheaper than mixed drinks) and hopefully we can baby make soon and I will consume a little beer before that all begins. There....I am not an alcoholic, I have reason dang it.



Ok, in other news. Remember most of family is stationed in Louisiana for work right now. Well what is the big news in Louisiana right now...MARDI GRAS! Craziness bascily. So they all traveled home for Liam's second birthday this weekend so none of them enjoyed the festivities. A group of my little brothers friends stayed in Louisiana for the experience and guess who they saw drinking at a bar.....

Hello Dave Matthews. Now to truly understand this story you have to know that my younger brother (who left his friends to return home) is probably one of the biggest fans of his ever. Ever CD he owns, all tee-shirts and so forth. He has been a fan since grade school I believe. His first Dave concert was with me when he was maybe 13?? He is crazy about him...he would have fainted I believe. YES...you never know when you need to pack your camera or when you will see a star....talk about the wrong place at the wrong time. His friends wont let me live it down either!

I think Klayton might have just DIED if he had seen Dave hanging around somewhere!

I wouldn't worry about the beer! The soda and ice tea is a huge sacrifice for you- you will have to give up beer AND mixed drinks when you 'are in a family way'!
