Every year for Lent I decide to give up shopping.  I know I know you can’t believe it.  You would think it would get easier, but it doesn’t.  Every year as the months get colder my will power becomes weaker.  All the new bright, fun things that remind me of sunny, warm days are dangled in my face thru emails, social media and of course Pursona new arrivals.  It’s just teasing me.  I’m the person that will buy opened up sandals and rompers when it’s 19 degrees outside.  Hey if I’ll buy it won’t it bring the sunshine? Ha!

Well this year I’m pregnant and I’m having a hard time deciding what to give up for lent.  I can’t give up shopping because A. I’ll be shopping for the girls and B. because my body is changing so much I have to buy new things to accommodate the bump.  I can’t give up alcohol, well because I already did 6 months ago and I can’t give up sweets because I never know when the girls will want a little something. (wink) So what do I give up?

I’ve racked my brain.  Besides the three I mentioned I really don’t have any other vices.  I asked Elizabeth and Haley, at the store, and they are both giving up sweets and alcohol respectfully.  I’m not going to like I’m sad I’ll be losing work husbands, for 40 days, that indulge with me when I’m feeling snacky.

If anyone has some suggestions please help me out.  I feel like I’m doing something wrong by not giving up something for lent.  You know us catholics, the guilt will eat us alive!

  1. hey Angie I am reading this blog a little late but just wanted to share with you what I am doing for Lent – I decided why is it that we have to give up something / why not add something – so for me I have decided that every day I will do something active – adding on to the activity each day! So I am accountable for getting up and moving and doing something physical.
