Being in control

Did y'all know that those lines on red Solo cups actually mean something?

 

I am not a big drinker. At all. I usually have 1 drink per week...sometimes more...mostly less. I'm not a fan of the taste, the insane calories alcohol adds but mostly, I want to be in control of myself. I am a small person meaning it doesn't take much for alcohol to take over my body, brain, etc. I rarely drink at restaurants either. I like eating my calories, and again, being in control. My husband drinks more than I do, mostly at work events, but 100% respects my non drinking tendencies. It can be annoying when we are out and people are begging me to drink or  take shots (which I never do) but I just have to blow it off haha. I actually think I am a pretty fun person without alcohol :-). But I did want to share that picture, party responsibly friends!

Speaking of alcohol, one thing I do like is Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka (mixed with lemonade) and they now make a skinny version. You can't find it everywhere but I got it at Twin Liquor. Jon is hypoglycemic so this is perfect for his sugar levels.

Cuddling with Mr. Ernie. He loved all of the comments on yesterday's video, he is quite the mama's boy

A discussion topic this week...I hope to be able to share my thoughts soon

How cute is this?! Our neighborhood sends out a monthly newsletter with all the activities going on. Jon has a few more years until he can join ROMEO

Yesterday was supposedly National Chocolate Icecream Day so our night included Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Therapy (and The Price Is Right haha)

Have a great weekend y'all

Ruthie I think it is perfectly fine to stand your ground on what you believe. I do not drink at all and its funny because I love eating so much more than drinking beverages in general. I just think of drinks as something you have to do, but I'd much rather be eating! :) My hubby does drink, but usually just one drink on any occasion. I tend to avoid scenes where people are drinking a lot because it makes me feel uncomfortable and I don't want them to think I'm judging them. But I agree why would you drink all those calories while Ben and Jerry's exists in the world? :)

Interesting! And thinking of the Red Solo Cup I always remember a video my SIL posted on facebook of my 5yo nephew...he LOVES that song and she taped him singing it. Adorable! Haha, and I'm definitely going to try that skinny tea sometime!

Very interesting. I didn't know they meant anything. My husband and I aren't big drinkers either. I will crave sweet wine every few weeks, but Jared doesn't drink at all. His stomach can't handle alcohol anymore. We are in the same boat, any time we are out even at BBQ's everyone is badgering him to drink just a beer, or for me just to take a shot! It gets SO annoying. I think it's a control thing still (for me anyway) I like to choose when/ where/ what/ how much I want to drink! ha!

OMG! I totally didn't know they meant something. HAHAHAHA

Heather said...

romeo! bwahaha! oh i love it ruthie!!!!

Brooke said...

I never knew those lines meant anything. Who knew :) (And I don't drink either.)

Also, ROMEO is hilarious. Totally need to get some old men in my neighborhood to start it up.

i'm excited to read your thoughts on why God allows bad things to happen. I have had this discussion with 3 of my friends in the last 2 weeks- religious and non-religious! it is such a tough question to answer and hard for people to understand if they don't have faith!

I don't drink often and I never do shots. If it goes straight to my stomach it will come right back out. I am crazy enough I don't need enticing, but I do like me some wine every now and then.

I never knew that about the Solo cups. So interesting!!

And I'm like you. I've never done any single drug in my life, even though in high school my best friends were all druggies and drug dealers. Yeah, I was cool. heh. heh. And I almost never drink. But all for the same reason. I don't like the feeling of not being in control. And not because I'm a controlling person; I'm not. But because I don't see the point in risking it.

So interesting about the Solo cups, thanks for the info!! I am not a big drinker at all, but when I do drink it's definitely in moderation.

That ROMEO group sounds adorable!
