Thank Goodness It's Good Friday!

Can you believe it's almost Easter? How are we half-way through April already? I'm so not ready for swimsuit season, y'all.

Anyway, Rob and I are about to pack up the car and dog to head down to Florida for a visit with his family this weekend. I'm hoping I can hang onto my willpower a little bit longer and not dig into the bag of Cadbury Creme eggs (my kryptonite!) and Reese's egg-shaped chocolate peanut butter cups that we're bringing with us - at least until Sunday. Honestly, I'm not a huge chocolate fan, but something about Easter candy just hooks me in every year.

As for an Easter meal, I plan to contribute one or two dishes to the mix, but I'm torn on what to provide - big green salad? Low-cal version of scalloped potatoes? Deviled eggs? I'm definitely whipping up a pitcher of mimosas and some dessert - possibly this Splenda-sweetened Lemon Velvet Layer Cake.

Anyway, I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend. Here's a little Easter happy, courtesy of the incomparable Judy Garland and Fred Astaire.
