The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Get A Sweet Tooth

Since we are all going to resign ourselves to lose weight as our New Years Resolution, I might as well finish out my 2008 eating like a greedy girl. My total obsession is sweets. Cookies, ice cream, cupcakes. Love them all and could probably OD on chocolate all day long. I don’t need to eat…
