7 quick takes vol 18

Happy first Friday of Lent. What did you give up these 40 days?
I gave up cookies.

But I feel like I have to do more. It's always my usual go-to give up to stay away from cookies.
My hubby gave up candy (his usual) AND ice cream. Way to go my man! We are ice cream lovers in the Delima household. He will have to witness our ice cream licking almost daily at home.

Jen has a nice list. (I'm eyeing the 'wear a chapel veil to Mass)

My holy saint-in-the-making husband (who won't like this one bit, as elevate him to blessedness) fasted the old-fashioned (pre-Vatican II fasting) last Ash Wednesday. No snacks at all. Only water. Until dinner time where we went to the hibachi/teppanyaki grill at the resort.
I couldn't do that.... He has a will of a saint. Fasting at an all inclusive resort where I ate my 2 snacks and 1 meal.
