One I gave up for health, the other for Lent. And I bought both today...
But I have fantastic excuses!
The magazine - Marie Claire Idees.
Have you seen this magazine?
It's so lovely that I squeal and cry a little (okay not really) every time I get the new issue. And it totally helps me learn French (okay, here I'm absolutely fibbing).
Plus, the guy at my local magazine shop brings it in ESPECIALLY for me &
calls me when it arrives. So really how could I not buy it?
And the coffee? It's swiss water decaf and my cafe owner friend assures me it has VERY minimal amounts of caffeine in it. And that was the whole point of this exercise. I can still drink it and not have heart palpitations or jitters.
So really, I'm not cheating at all, right? Yay me!
