Sugar Overload

While my sister took Josh his doctor's appointment I had my two nieces for the morning. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I'm about to turn 30, or just the fact that they give me an excuse to not care about anything, or just the fact that I have a hard time saying no to bakery treats, but I ate way too many of them on Monday...all before noon. We started out at 8:30 with Branbury Cross Donuts downtown. Lots of them. Then since we were downtown all ready, we stopped by Les Madeleines and got some Kouing Aman for later (Mmmmm if you haven't ever had one of these you should.) But they just started serving beignets too so I had to try some...and I can't go in there without getting some lavender lemonade...and the cupcakes looked so good that we decided to just get one and split it. It was small but weighed at least 9 pounds. After we dropped off my car at the mechanics we walked home stopping at 3 parks along the way where Katrina was nice enough to push me and Kjirsten on the swings.
We were hot from our walk so we had rootbeer popsicles while feeding the horses out back. We were debating going to pick lilacs in the vacant lot when their parents called to see if we wanted to meet them for treats at Kneaders. Even the girls said no thanks we were done with sugar, so they got us all sandwiches... But then we came home and ate more donuts and pastries. Bleeeech. I was sick. I must be getting old for sure because I swear I could handle twice this much sugar before. I think a similar thing happened last time I spent the morning with them. Except that time we started out at Kneaders and worked our way over to Ben and Jerry's...

Jeez Katie. I wish you were my aunt. Then you could treat me to all sorts of delicious sweets. But hey, I treat myself to all sorts of delicious sweets, which is why I actually weigh more than I did a year ago--when I had just had a baby. Ah, life. So fun.
