The anti-resolution

While everyone else is busy losing weight, quitting smoking, exercising more and eating healthier, I'm indulging in everything that makes me happy. Overall, 2009 was kind of a bummer, which means 2010 is destined to be fabulous. I celebrated the first day of the new year with carb-alicious macaroni and cheese pizza and savored every bite of tasty goodness.
