A V-Day and Fat Tuesday Par-tay!

Happy Fat Tuesday, everyone!

I am sort of suffering from a sugar headache after pigging out a bit at our Valentine-oriented party celebrating our volunteers at work. My friend and I made paper heart chains, and I folded up paper origami frogs (the kind with two legs, that actually hop!), and we made little heart puddles with lily pads on them. Needless to say, the decor rocked. :) At least, that's what we said. I think some of our volunteers were confused by the frogs, but our boss (bless him) went around and showed all the little old ladies how to make them hop.

Oh, there was other stuff, too. But nothing quite like our paper decorations. (If I told you how much time we spent making it...good gravy! But totally worth it.)

So, today is Fat Tuesday. I can't believe it's already here. Tomorrow, I am giving up most forms of sugar (kind of a blessing, after today), so I partook today without guilt. Not without consequences, though! I had homemade ice cream, and candy-coated popcorn, and more ice cream, and punch with ice cream...there was chocolate, too, which I am pleased to say I avoided very well. And then there were cheese and meat trays, fruits, so much more--punch, made with sherbet--oh. We know how to throw a party.

Speaking of partying, welcome to my new readers! I'm pleased to have you all following me. I was grinning ear to ear after I saw my new followers count. Yay! Welcome, welcome. Thanks for the comments, and thanks for those who read my new entry and my old one. (I'm apparently horrible at using Mr. Linky. I keep linking people to my Kissing Day post.)

OK. So now I have just barely taken part in four blogfests:

Kissing Day
Almost-Kissing Day
Fight Scene Day
Love at First Sight Day

Yeah, I really need to work on shorter posts, for these.

We do seem to have a bit of a thing going, eh? We're all giant romantics, or something. Who enjoy a good fight.

Anywho...I'm off to crash after my sugar rush. Until next time--good luck with the writing, friends!

Sugar is a blessing and a curse. I don't know what I'd do without my chocolate every night, but then I have to get on the treadmill too.

A vicious cycle, that. :)

Happy belated Fat Tuesday! I love a good sugar rush. Just hate the crash.

Amalia: Thanks! :D

Stephanie: Yeah, it really is. I gave up chocolate for a while--and now that I've been off it for some time, it's been easier (gasp, yes, I know)--but I sure did miss it right off the bat.

Karen: Thanks for the comment, and welcome to my blog! Yeah, the crash is not fun...especially when accompanied by a splitting headache.
