I did not bake these unhealthy cupcakes with Landon and his cousins the other day. I would never feed my child refined sugar, bleached flour, hydrogenated oil, a stick of butter, and blue #1. Just ignore the cute pictures and the video that appeared here a few days ago. That was not me who posted them.
I did not gain 5 pounds in the last few months. No, not me! Okay, I did.
I think it started with me buying a whole box of Snickers bars at BJ’s. I did the math and figured out that they were only about 80 cents a piece, so frugal me could not pass them up. Don and I buy one or so a week anyway, because we just love them, so why not buy them for less than a buck?
Once I got them home, I realized that these were the larger Snickers bars, the king-size ones where the package actually holds two pieces. On one hand I was exited — I got an even better deal than I thought! — but since they were in the house, I could not make it through a day without eating a whole bar (yes, the two pieces).
Twenty bars disappeared in less than 20 days, with the help of Don. And all went downhill from there. Let’s not talk about it anymore . . .
(Don just read this post and he wants to make sure you don’t think he ate half of the Snickers bars. That’s true, if he was lucky he got his hands on four — I inhaled them way too fast :)
I certainly did not drag Landon out of the house even though it had started to snow heavily, only to make it to his preschool the minute they decided they have to close because of all the snow. I was so proud of myself, taking on the elements in my trusty Honda CRV.
Instead of being rewarded for that feat, we had to slip and slide back home. We made it just fine, but that’s the last time I try to venture out in that kind of weather with a three-year-old.
