Vodka Distracts From the Fact It's 18 Degrees Outside

Who realized that the last post which was a Wordless Wednesday, actually posted on a Thursday?

Raise your hand. It's okay, I don't mind. Someone should have called me out on that a few days ago.

That's just the kind of week it has been y'all.

Sickness is running rampant through our household, we're living in our pj's surrounded by piles of Kleenex and jars of mentholatum. We've got head colds, sinus infections, ear infections, and a teething toddler.

Despite all this I headed out Friday night for the December edition of girls night. Funnily enough, not many girls showed up. I'm thinking everyone else had a week like me. Anyways, it was a blast. D hosted this time and it was a mixed drink night. I brought the makings for cosmos and let me tell ya folks, I think I found the cure for the common cold. Copious amounts of vodka. Killed all those germs dead. Basically D and I ended up riding a scooter across her frozen yard, inadvertently doing doughnuts and burnouts cause really, I'm not so skilled at riding a scooter, much less under the influence. Then I discovered she had big round bales and horses! It was on after that. Hay bale jumping and frolicking with ponies ended the night. Did I mention it was freezing? No? Probably because all that vodka was keeping me toasty whilst curing my cold. Thank you Russia!

I'll try and be back with a more coherent and relevant blog post tomorrow. Something filled with Christmas cheer and whatnot. Maybe a holiday recipe. Or maybe I'll just post a pic of me pulling my hair out cause that's probably closer to the truth.


  1. Sounds like a fun night. We all need those once in a while.

  2. Vodka is a cure all! Totally. Too bad it was alcohol or else I'd be drinking it daily ... oh, wait ... haha, the wine. Maybe I should switch to vodka for optimal health :)

    Sounds like you girls had a blast!

  3. ha! It sounds like y'all had a blast. I miss haybale jumping. I think it's considered a sport in some areas...

  4. THIS Russian gal has one word for you: Stolichnaya!

    Go Sugar, go.

  5. haybale jumping? I've obviously been missing out.

  6. LOL at the Thank you Russia!!

    Whiskey's the only cold remedy in Ireland that works, and it DOES work which is weird. But I brought back six bottles of Nightquil (sp?) just in case LOL

    I hope you all feel better soon! This is NOT the month to be sick in!

  7. DESPITE all that?!!! You should have typed BECAUSE of all that!!!

    and I had to laugh because 1) I DIDn'T notice and 2) I'vedone the SAME thing before!!

  8. OK I totally can see you doing this and hearing stories of drunken Ashley makes me SO very secure in my choice of a bloggy bff.


Now play nice and for every comment you leave, I'll buy you a pony.
