As if there were not enough calories to take in during the month of December, January brought with it party after party after party. It was my birthday, and Emily's - however, Emmy's was celebrated approximately 8 times.... Even if our birthday cakes were less than traditional, all this partying was such a HUGE problem for me. For my birthday, I insisted on a "cake" that I would not be tempted to eat. Keith purchased grocery store cinnamon rolls, as these have never been a problem for me to say "no" to in the past.... We'll blame it on the time of the month... I ate three. For Emmy's birthday parties, I did a little better, but not much. I was able to pass on the cupcakes and chocolate chip cookie cake with the blue icing, but not my homemade cinnamon rolls which were a part of a brunch that I had for her with Keith's family.
Where's the chocolate you ask? Well, of course there was chocolate in January. I'll tell you all about it - tomorrow.
