We don’t get out often, can’t you tell? We’ve been drifting in this thing called motherhood for a while now, some of us longer than others, and we get a little too excited when we get to pop out on the town. Why? Because of life, kids, motherhood…did I mention life? Getting in a quick date during the week after a long day of work can be a great way to break up the monotony. Weekends are even better! But rest assured, when we do get out we have a ball! And this is why moms should date their mommy friends.
Okay, this is a sweet little note for the fellas because I think you all need a little tweaking in this area. Now look, don’t be mad at me…I’m just the messenger! But every year, Mother’s Day rolls around and I listen to my mom friends whine and vent, totally bummed about not really getting what they wanted for Mother’s Day. And I think the main reason is that many of you men totally miss the mark on this one. Perhaps this isn’t your fault, you really do try to make a special day and for that moms are eternally grateful! But, what if I told you there was something else moms wanted more than anything…. something that may have never occurred to you?
I don’t know about you but this week didn’t start so well for me. As I struggled to fight off a terrible cold, life continued at lightning speed around me. Between this cold, a teething 14 month old and two rambunctious preschool boys with two different classroom parties, I am in need of some serious relaxation this weekend. Luckily I found a sparkling remedy for bringing my stressed-out week to a close: $9.99 custom 6 pack ciders.
Being a mom is a full-time job! Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to go out and pamper ourselves. We all want to like to look and feel fabulous this fall! Well, I’ve got news for you. What if I told you, you could pamper yourself in your own home? It’s true! And I’ve created a video to show you how easy it is. Don’t wait any longer, it’s time to get back to the fresh and rejuvenated version of YOU! Grab a glass of wine, sit back and get ready to pamper yourself.
Wine. Fruit. Bliss. That’s what sangria means to me. I’m getting misty just thinking about it. Over the past 10 years or so I’ve tried countless varieties. I offered three different kinds– including a sweet tea version– at my birthday celebration a couple of years ago. When it comes to sangria there are endless possibilities, flavors, and opportunities for fusion.
This week we are wine-ing down with a Sassy Sangria that’s super easy to make.
Welcome to Sassy Meg’s Weekly Wine-Down Challenge, where I drink wine FOR YOU! Yes, I love you so much that I’ll drink lots of wine just for you. In fact, I’m such a good friend that I am willing to sabotage my weight loss “progress” (insert eyeroll) and sacrifice my weekly snacks to taste wine on your behalf. You’re welcome. Ok, ok… you got me. I’d be drinking it anyway. Who am I kidding? With all the momming going on around here I’m bound to pour a glass or three in the evening after a long day of blowouts, tantrums, sink/toilet/bath water flooded bathrooms and sibling rivalry. But drinking wine with my Sassy Plum Mamas makes winding down way more fun!
