Confession of an OBSESSION

(And no, this time it's NOT scrapping-related! Ok, well it *is*, but it's not. ;))

It is time I come out and let the world know that I have finally realized I have a problem. Because that's the first step, right? And I can't do it alone. I need to belong to MA. McDonald's Anonymous. And it's not because of their incredible fries, though I love those, too.
I, Kelly Goree, am a McDonald's Diet Coke junkie.

There. I said it.

And it's true. I live for my daily cup of that incredibly potent caffeine. There is just something about a McDonald's fountain Diet Coke that is unlike any other. I don't know what it is and I don't care. I just know I love it. And I know that I really need to part ways with it. It's not doing me or my waistline any good. With your help, I am going to enter this 12-step recovery program to cut that liquid heaven out of my life. Today. Truly. This time it's for real! (Are you believing me??!)

So as tribute to my past, I offer up this layout - my entry into the Effer Girls' Last Scrapper
Standing Contest, Round 2. Oh Yes. I have a McObsession. ;)
(p.s. Is anyone else finding it somewhat foreboding that there are 13 photos on this layout??! Not that I'm superstitious or anything...)

The layout ROCKS! I need to join the 12-step program with you because I too am a McD's Diet Coke addict!!! Theirs IS SOOOOO much better than ANYWHERE else! LOL!!!

Chrissy said...

OK, I can so relate. I often leave the house just to go to McD's for a diet coke. It is the best out there!! I tell my sister it is the "burn" and she laughs hysterically at me. But really--McD's diet coke is better--stornger--more burn! I think I may need help also. :o)

I thought I was all alone in my addition to fountain diet Pops. I love McDonald's but I also enjoy Tim Hortons and Wendy's for a Diet Pepsi. Burger King, the cup just does not work for me after about 15 minutes I taste the "cup" while drinking it. My family thinks my I am a freak for fountain pops and i get teased by everyone. I too have an obsession. Could be worse, I could be an acholic!
