Sweet Temptation and Johnny Depp

One of the few things I cannot stand about the Easter aftermath is the fact that my house is now filled with sweets.

We are not a candy family, and yet I am now surrounded by...

Robins Eggs
Jelly Beans
Dove Chocolate eggs
Chocolate bunnies
Sweet Tarts
Carrot cupcakes
and three kinds of coffee cake.


To offset the monumental ingestion of sugar over the weekend, I worked out yesterday evening. I'm planning to again today (the first day my boys are back at school). But life would be a whole heck of a lot easier if my dining room table didn't look like a scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Wait a minute! Maybe all I have to do is think about this creep haunting my dining room...


Yep, that'll keep me from looking like Augustus Gloop by the end of the day... Then I can sit back and think about this guy instead.

MMM-mm. Now that's a sweet indulgence I don't mind in the least.

  1. I'm sort of sugared out here, too. Mostly I'm sick of finding wrappers everywhere.

  2. I am a huge Johnny Depp lover. He digs me. :-)

    Found you on Green Girl's blog

  3. Hey, Teri! Nice to meet you. :D

    I should have figured that she who hosts the Colin Firth photo hunkfest might send someone by.

    ... I have a sneaking suspicion that Johnny Depp digs me, too. But don't worry. I'm in *such* a sharing mood.

    GG - Yeah, those little bits of foil can be annoying. But not as annoying as the Easter grass!

    :D - Julia

  4. Oh, yes. He is very yummy. And I suspect, not very good for you.


Talk to me.
