Weight Watchers Has Nothing on My Mother-in-Law's Fudge.

This past Sunday we made our annual christmas pilgrimage to Gainesville. Armed with presents and rumbling bellies, the trip... in my (most noteworthy) opinion... was a success. Grandma Mimi put out a delicious spread of meatballs, mini hotdogs, cheese & nachos, bacon wrapped bread sticks, soup, and... oh yeh... FUDGE. Mmmmm... glorious fudge.

Did I mention I joined Weight Watchers? Uh huh. Because starting a diet right before the holidays is like shoveling the sidewalk during a snow storm. Heh. And, as if the hot dogs and nacho cheese weren't enough to lure me to the dark side, she had bacon wrapped bread sticks sprinkled with cheese. And fudge. Did I mention the fudge? Chocolate fudge, peanut butter fudge and maple fudge. FUDGE.

Fortunately, in the afternoon I had the opportunity to burn off a bit of the bacon and fudge when I won a $50 off your $100 purchase at Old Navy certificate. With the baby resting on Grandpa Mimi's shoulder and the big boys engulfed in a dinosaur paradise, I absconded with my coupon and shopped until my heart was content I hit a hundred dollars. (or maybe a little bit more).

After fighting the holiday crowds, I was beat (have you noticed, I managed to totally make this post about me... and fudge). Clearly the cure was a return to the in-laws' for the last bacon breadstick (and FUDGE). Then we packed up the masses and headed home. All in all, a (fudgy) good day.

LOL.... I started WW right before the holidays last year... stuck to it and lost 10 pounds in 4 weeks... only to promptly gain it all back after my sister's wedding (yes I had motivation) in January. I've never been madder about 10 pounds! I'm sure you will be more successful... :)

Fudge and bacon breadsticks.. mmm. Normally that would be a weird combo but I'm kind of hungry right now so it kinda sounds good.
