There is such a thing as too much fun.
Turning 7 years old and celebrating Chuck E Cheese style = perfect amount of fun.
way too many Jello shots for your first time at Summer Fun with the ladies = Too much rum fun.
It's a really good thing I have this guy to keep me company, because today has been miserable.
You'd think I was a high school senior doing keg stands and beer bongs with this hangover hell I'm in. I'm just too old for this shizz. Or I'm the only dummy who doesn't eat anything all day except a salad and a slice of birthday cake (from the party). No wonder it hit me so hard.
And I was the one with the brilliant idea to make Jello shots, as it was a BYOB event. They just look so innocent. I've heard the horror stories .... that I must have forgotten them as I started throwing them back like they were going out of style. Leave it to me to put almost a shot of liquor in each one. I don't think I'll be following that recipe any time soon. In fact, I've sworn off alcohol forever. Or at least for the next 30 days.
Most people kick off Memorial Day weekend with heavy drinking, BBQ's, etc. I'll be sweating heavy instead, and raising a glass (of water).
I'm excited to see how much money I'll save, how much more sleep I'll get, and of course, how it will affect my training. I'm afraid I've turned into quite the lush. My poor liver.
We did stop for Whataburger on our way home (I was having a Hoff burger). I'd never been to Whataburger, but the Kids Justaburger I had was really good, and at just 290 calories, pretty guilt-free. Unlike all of that damn Jello.
Funniest photo of the night: the boot sandal! Like the mullet for your foot.
How are you celebrating this weekend?
I do hope that you will take a moment tomorrow to remember our heroes. It's frustrating that such a momentous day is sandwiched onto a 3-day weekend full of BBQing and drinking, but if you're throwing back a cold one, take a moment to send up a prayer for our fallen soldiers, too.
Thank you to the men and women who put on the uniform every day. To those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their life. To the families who lost their son, daughter, husband, father. You are not forgotten. I'm honored and proud to call myself an American! Honor them this Memorial Day!
