cocktail anyone?

Since Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, I thought I'd kick it off with a much deserved cocktail. One that I hadn't had since I found out I was pregnant—the coveted margarita.

Friday, Josh, Gideon and I went to our favorite local mexican eatery—the one were all the staff actually speak better Spanish than English. We hadn't been there since before Gideon was born and I was super excited to have chips, salsa, and a margie. Which I did. And it was good. So good in fact that when I got home and Gideon was asleep I made myself another.

On Saturday we had a little impromptu bbq at our house with Josh's family. Once Gideon went down for his nap I made myself margarita. Now, let me tell you, my margaritas are much stronger than the ones at the restaurant. They are served in a salt rimmed rocks glass with chipped ice and only consist of three things tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. And the ratio of alcohol to lime juice is 2:1. So good. So good in fact that I ended up having two more that day (and one yesterday). Not a big deal as long as our prepared for feedings.

We are going to my Mom's today for a cookout. I won't be having any margaritas but I did see a big bottle of Chardonnay in her fridge yesterday. Cocktail anyone?

A margarita sounds wonderful. Only I don't have any lime juice. Or triple sec. Or teguila.

Guess I'll have to settle for just the salt.

And the ice.

I'm jealous. I would kill for a margarita. Or, as the case may be, a margarita would kill me. I miss those. Stupid, stupid, defective liver.

mmmmm Margaritas are yummy!

Nothing wrong with treating yourself, pump and dump my friend...pump and dump.

That must have tasted so good after going so long without. I had a similar long break from alcohol when I was on antibiotics for three months straight. Nothing like nine plus months, I can't imagine going that long!

Aren't you not supposed to consume alcohol when breastfeeding. I meand, I'm not Dr. Spock or Capt. Kirk or even Scottie, but it seem right.

TF—I got the okay from the lactation consultant. As long as I'm not drunk, then it's okay to breast feed. I make sure that I have plenty of time between when I have a drink and his next feeding for the "effects of alcohol" to wear off.
