Twist Of Lime

T is for Tonic....as in Gin and Tonic. Now I know y'all have heard me talk about my undying love for boxed wine.....and I'd never kick a cold beer out of bed either but as far as cocktails go....gin and tonics are my thing. It all started several years ago when I had to take a work trip to Reno (woot woot).....my Aunt met me out there and we had THE BEST time. Lots of gambling, sight seeing, food.....and that's when she introduced me to gin and tonics. There we would sit...playing video poker, smoking cigarettes and sipping our cocktails in some dark bar of a casino. Seriously....one of my favorite memories of all time. So now every time I slurp down a G&T the nostalgia comes back and makes my drink just that much better. What's your fav drink????

R

R is for Rhubarb. My husband brought me home a rhubarb plant starter kit and I couldn't be more excited. Last year I was desperate for some and it was hard to locate....I got some from the farmer's market but they were very proud of their product and it was spendy....but delicious none the less. I really wanted a plant of my own...couldn't locate one...bummer...so when the hubs brought it home I was delighted. Rhubarb brings me back to my youth....it would grow wild around my neighborhood and my grandmother would send me out to collect some and then make the most amazing bars with it. Now...it's nowhere to be found...I can't wait for my kids to be able to pick it and help me bake....well....help my husband bake (I start fires in the kitchen....we just don't get along). So...wish me luck that my plants survive so that new memories can be made ( and yummy goodies too)! Peace Out!

Juice Cleanse Update # 9

Day 4 breakfast time. Well....last night sucked the big rotten cucumber....I cried for hours. I know I use food as an emotional crutch and without it I was forced to think of other things....and I had a total meltdown. I think I'm ok now...It was probably good to get those tears out. Today I feel sort of ok....but I am down 12 pounds and still no headaches so that's progress.

I went to give my kids some Capri Suns this morning (lazy me) and I always take a sip out so that when they grab the pouch they won't squeeze juice all over the place. Well, I wasn't thinking and went ahead and took the sip....OH MY GOD...that shit is awful! It tastes like sugar water with hints of something....not sure what.. but it isn't fruit. So...my few days of juicing have definitely changed my perspective of what the hell REAL food should taste like. Well...I'm actually going to go spend time with a human who eats today...and I feel strong enough to try being around people....plus if I don't do some gossiping soon I will totally end up drinking the bottle of Cake Vodka in my freezer for lunch...

Sh*t My Daughter Says

So currently my darling toddler is really talking up a storm....I love hearing her words....she has such a sweet little voice (usually) however it's not really an "inside" voice....but that is not her fault....the entire family is loud....most of the time her words are complete or close enough that you know what she is trying to say....However...she can't say the word, jacket. She just calls it a jack...kind of cute right??? Well yes except for when we go inside a store and she wants to remove her coat...so to notify me she starts yelling "JACK OFF MOMMA!" ....repeatedly until I have it has been taken off and then like 10 people are looking at us in horror and I'm laughing hysterically.....I know she's not trying to say a bad word (trust me she says, shit, just fine) but I like to let people wonder why this adorable small child is saying something so vulgar. Well...gotta go....I think I will take my sweetie pie to an old folks home for a visit....let's see if they have their hearing aids turned up! Bwahahahah! Peace Out!

Sing A Song For Me

So this morning my very talented toddler was strumming on her pink princess guitar and singing, the tar (meaning guitar) the tar goes ting ting ting the tar the tar goes woo woo woo. Now I don't know about you but I'm pretty darn sure she is a future Grammy award winner...and she better take me as her guest to the Grammys... after all I bought that guitar and I have always wanted to go to an awards show! If she doesn't take me I'm not going to lie...my feelings will be hurt and I will just have to write a book about her called, My Turdy Daughter Didn't Take Me To The Grammy Awards...which will be a best seller, be turned into a sit com (probly on FOX) which I will be begged to be a writer on and BOOM I win an Emmy. Guess who I take as my date to the Emmy Awards??? Duh my daughter who snubbed me....the talk shows will eat it up....however I will be wearing a full length black gown, long sleeves and high neck with her name written all over it in red swarovski crystals....which will land me on some horrible show that Joan Rivers will still be hosting due to her deal with devil, and I will be all over the E! channel as worst dressed....but I am totally ok with that because for every second they are talking about my dress they are not talking about that annoying Kim Kardashian! I just hope my sex tape doesn't get out....well better go....I need to go drop 100 pounds and make a sex tape...Peace Out!

...No Matter What They Say....

Katy Perry's Firework, Lady Gaga's Born This Way & Pink's Perfect.....all amazing songs....all of them telling people it's ok to be who you are....and I would like to thank them for that....as a mother of 3 crazy and different children it makes me happy to hear a song telling them they are awesome. I'm going to get some grief about this from some more of the uptight crowd but they can suck it....you can be happy being you and I can be happy being me...and all I really want in this world is for my children to be happy being who they are. I have a great mix in my family, tall, short, blonde, brunette, ginger, strong, smart, silly and the freckles...but all that is "normal" .... I am also a proud momma of a hand flapper and two of my children have interesting birthmarks....you know the kind of stuff that make people stare and say shitty comments....and yea we get it a lot....so when I hear Lady Gaga singing...."I'm beautiful in my way cause God makes no mistakes"...it warms my heart..... I know that if I tell my kids not to care about what everyone else wants them to be they will roll their eyes at me...BUT if Pink sings a song about it then they just might listen. I know some people don't even know who Katy Perry is....because they don't listen to "that kind of music" (followed by the look of disgust that I do)....but any person who tells my child.."baby, you're a firework Come on, show 'em what you're worth".. is cool in my book. ...I know there are several other artists that have done songs similar to these.....and I hope there will be more to come....and I'm thankful that they are inspired to do so....Peace out!
