Do you like pina coladas? And going out in the rain...

*Warning: if you are against drinking, you may find this post offensive. I don't want to alienate anyone. Proceed with caution!*


I had a great night last night.

A great night.

Want to know why?

Pina coladas.

My husband is a champion pina colada maker. Nothing better to help an exhausted mommy unwind then one or two (or 4...yikes!) pina coladas.

We had friends C and K over for dinner last night along with their two daughters A and A. (We'll call them A1 and A2 so as not to be confusing.) We had a feast planned! A delicious appetizer of chili-cheese dip and chips, followed by steak and chicken on the grill, corn on the cob, salad, and double-baked potatos. The perfect summer meal.

And pina coladas.

C and I sipped them right when they arrived. We sipped some more while the men went outside to do manly BBQ-ish things at the grill. (That sounds dirty. Tee hee!) We sipped them with dinner, and we sipped them after dinner.

Before we knew it, C and I had each "sipped" 4 pina coladas. Our hubbies, quite brilliantly, remained sober in order that the children wouldn't go unsupervised. Such good men! Such presence of mind! (Lance was asleep by this time and A1 was starting to drift off. I don't want anyone to think we were getting trashed and not paying attention to the kids!)

This is unusual behavior for both of us. Our husbands were quite happy to let us get ourselves dizzy. Such great men they are! There we were, the two of us sipping pina coladas and giggling like schoolgirls.

I won't lie. We enjoyed it.

This morning though? Not so hot. Not horrible, but not so hot.

Do I have a point to this post? Just to say that every once in awhile, it's great to unwind, let your hair down, and relax. And if you're going to drink 4 pina coladas, you might as well do it with your friends from church!!

Sounds like you guys had a good time. It never hurts to relax and enjoy---especially when the guys are going to keep an eye on the kids. Glad you guys had fun....

Have a great weekend.

I'm glad you had a chance to unwind. LOL Every mommy deserves that sometimes! I'm also glad you had husbands sweet enough to let you two enjoy yourselves while they watched the kids!

To answer your questions from like a week ago (gosh I'm behind), yes I do sell AVON, and I really like it! If you ever need anything, just let me know and I'll send you the link to my website!

Have a great Tuesday!

Good times. I drank a few glasses of wine last night and the only ill effect it apparently had was to wake me bolt upright in the middle of the night with the need to use the washroom RIGHT NOW.

For next time: take a massive dose of B vitamin multicomplex before you go to bed, and another when you get up in the morning. It'll help metabolize the alcohol so you won't feel so hung over.

I don't like pineapple or coconut, but I loves me a virgin margarita. Or a virgin tequila sunrise. Mmmm. Non-alcoholic drinks are fun for us non-drinkers. (I know, "what's the point?" I like the way they taste!)
