Today I bring you a Tequila Sunrise Margarita!
Because depending on when you’re reading this, I may be channeling Dierks Bentley and getting drunk on a plane.
Just kidding. I’m waaaaaay too uptight to do something like that but I’ll be wishing I was getting drunk on a plane. Because I hate flying. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. For the same reason I don’t like movie theaters. It’s too small a space with too many people I don’t know and too few exits.
BUT! I’m heading to California for a social media thing so I’m willing to do the whole plane thing. Because I’ve never been to California! And I’m super stoked about just being there.
It’s been several years since I’ve had the chance to go away and I’ve never, ever spent a night away from the baby (who isn’t a baby). This trip just happened to be at a time when my husband could skip a few days of work which isn’t easy since, you know… Army.
Also, my husband’s never kept all 3 kids longer than, like, a grocery trip. He asked me to board Penelope (#idiothusky) because he doesn’t think he can handle her, all the kids, and Clementine. As you can imagine, having your husband admit to not being able to handle 3 days of what you did for 9 months is pretty awesome.
I’ve also been annoying my best friend with ridiculous TSA questions, as I do every time I fly since she works for an airline. I actually deleted a text before I sent it yesterday that said, “Can I bring bobby pins in my carry on? Because I’m pretty sure I could use a bobby pin as a weapon if I needed to.”
The one about the hair straightener made it through though. (Sorry Megan!)
