I'm a light-weight

No, this doesn't have anything to do with me losing weight. Just the opposite actually.

Since yesterday was my birthday, I gave myself the day off. I ate what I wanted and (tried) not to worry about it. Chili dogs, mac & cheese, fries, and ice cream for lunch. Mac & cheese for snack (its not often I get homemade mac & cheese). Ramen noodles and strawberry short cake for dinner.

And 3 glasses of wine. I'm not sure if I was dehydrated because of my lack of water consumption (did I mention the Pepsi I had for lunch and the Dr. Pepper for snack?) or if it was because our house is hot (84 degrees at the hottest point), but after a half a glass of wine, I started getting a bit of a buzz.

The first bottle was already half empty, so between Jay and I we finished it off for round one. I had to wait a couple of hours for the 2nd bottle to chill in the fridge, the we cracked it open and enjoyed.

I must take this opportunity to say I'm not sure how I ever enjoyed Sutter Home White Zin. It use to be my favorite, but somehow I just doesn't taste as good when you start with Yellow Tail Reisling.

After 3 glasses of wine, I was to that perfect buzzed moment. Kind of embarrassing that it takes that little any more. We just don't drink very often.

I had a great birthday. My sister brought my niece and nephew into town, my mom cooked lunch for me, and Jay cooked dinner for me. Not to mention the awesome gifts. It just sucks that the day after such a wonderful birthday is a Monday!


  1. Happy Birthday my friend! I'm glad you had a great day. What happened to making it a birthday week or month?

  2. Happy Birthday!! So glad you enjoyed your self, you deserve it.

  3. Yay for birthdays!!! Glad to hear that you had a good one! :-)

    Don't worry about being a lightweight, it only takes me 1 glass :-)

  4. Happy slightly belated birthday, my friend!! Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! IMO being a lightweight = much cheaper hehe

  6. Glad you had a great birthday - sounds perfect!

  7. Happy belated birthday! Hey, nothing wrong with being a light weight, it is more economical, ha.

  8. Belated happy birthday!! I love the idea of having a "free day" on your birthday to eat whatever you want!

    I'm such a lightweight too! It makes me feel so old sometimes. I used to be able to drink like 3-4 glasses of wine and be ready to party. Now I drink 1 glass of wine and I'm ready to fall asleep!

  9. Happy Belated Birthday! Don't worry - you're not alone. I had 2 drinks last night at a friend's house (and wasn't that tipsy) but have been suffering from a headache all day!


what up yo?
