Why I Drink

If you follow my posts and blog you are no stranger to the fact that I enjoy alcohol.  I do.  I really, really do.  I’m not an alcoholic (that’s what we all say) but I’m unsure if I could function without my wine, margaritas and martinis.  

There are many reasons why I drink and in this post we are going to explore a few of them.  Join me, won’t you?

Well, obviously, there are two main reasons why I drink:
Don't be fooled...we only LOOK innocent and angelic.

Without these two little men I could never live…or justify the amount of alcohol I consume. 

Those cute little bastards fill my days with joy and stress and the need for cocktails.  Here’s why:
Because they love getting haircuts...
Carter, make sure you don't hold still or make this easy in any way, Ok?

Because they eat like this...

Yes! Perfect! That's EXACTLY where I wanted you to put that!

Because they make doing fun things like going to the beach easy...

Enjoying yourself yet?

Because they never make messes...

For real?

Because they do things like this to each other...

Green is your color, Grant.

Because sometimes they look like this...


But most of the time they look like this...

Forcibly trying to remove his brother's that's more like it!

Because I just can't get enough of this face...

So there it is, folks.  An abbreviated list of the reasons why I drink.  Trust me, it could be longer...but I don't always have my camera handy to catch these precious memories.

It's like I always say: Parenting is hard...but tequila helps!


  1. Adorable pics - and all perfectly valid reasons to tip a glass. :)

  2. Yay! So glad I found you. And I have 7 reasons, myself.

    1. I'm so glad you found me too...and that I found you back! Cheers to that =)

  3. Excellent reasons! All of them. May I request you carry your camera around more often? Love that Christmas tree photo!
