OH MY!! Well, I hear you look GREAT! I can't wait to see you...HOTT STUFF! So, I say if you want, you can splurge and just have a normal brownie if you want! ;-)

Sometimes, like in the case of the diet coke brownie, it is better to just eat the real thing and work it off on the treadmill!

This looks great Lane!
