August 18 08

i have this problem. i can’t leave anywhere. i’m sure i’ve spoken about this before. the husband and the kids do a lot of waiting around for me to finish talking. there’s just always something more to say. i can’t just be all “see ya” – it’s not my style. yesterday afternoon, i went to deliver about 8 baby gifts. for babies who are embarrassingly too old to be receiving baby gifts. we’re talking, like, 6 months old. i have good intentions, i do. and i get excited when i friend has a baby.

(i see this story has turned into TWO problems, actually…)

i think about what i want to get. i get it. sometimes i even wrap it. and then it sits in the car. or it sits on my dining room table. so yesterday, we finally did it. deliveries. which, so silly of the husband, he thought would be quick. he told me to stay in the car. but, of course, i didn’t. i had to come out and see the babies. or the mommies. and stay and chat. and chat. and chat. so, while i was at one of the houses, the husband was sitting in the car with the kids…WAITING…

Josh: I’m sooo bored just looking at Mommy.

Emily: I’m so angry looking at Mommy

Isabella: I’m so hungry looking at Mommy.

heh. typical.

yesterday we celebrated Isabella’s birthday at Canada’s Wonderland. we made it small, 7 kids, and it was just perfect. they provided the pizza, the unlimited drinks (awesome…considering they usually charge $4.95 per diet coke), the cupcakes, the party hats and the Spongebob.

we provided the birthday girl, all decked out in her sunday best. (she now refuses to leave the house without a princess dress on)

more on flickr, of course.

and then we came home the girls watched Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers in 3-D

and i took a nap and dreamed about…


i swear. i did. i even asked the husband,, if he thought beer slurpees would be good.

what do you think?


yay or nay?

  1. I’ve long thought beer slurpees would be a great idea, but my husband keeps shooting me down. He seems to think the alcohol would keep them from freezing to the right consistency. We’ve obviously analyzed this one waaaaay too much!

  2. Oh I think its an excellent idea! And you should say patent pending so no one steals your genius.

  5. bellas princess dress is so cute. umm beer slurpees? ewww that would be nay for me


    Comment by LAVENDULA on August 18, 2008
  6. I like my beers insanely cold, but I think a beer slurpee may be more than I could take. However, I’d probably be willing to hand over $4.95 for a beer slurpee over a pop! Geez!

    I hope Emily wasn’t trying to take my Joe Jonas away from me! I have that movie saved on my DVR. For me. Heh.

  7. Could your family BE any cuter? I love the pics!!
    Not sure how I feel about the beer slurpee…I hate a brain freeze…so I think I would take a pass on those!


    Comment by jodi on August 18, 2008
  8. If I liked beer, I’d be ALL OVER your beer slurpee. I might even drive to Canada just to get one!

    I have the exact same problems with gifts – they always end up sitting in my trunk!

  13. My husband and I always put the first few beers in the freezer (we live in OK where you can’t buy cold beer over 3.2). A little while later they are beer slushies. Mmmm. Fantastic.

  15. MMMM – a beer slurpee at Wonderland would be awesome!


    Comment by Maria on August 18, 2008
  16. I’m a tad grossed out by the thought of a beer slurpie….On the other hand, the world should be grateful that you and my husband never hooked up because, dear God, it would be ONE ENDLESS CONVERSATION, possibly contributing to the initiation of the apocalypse.

  20. I’ll drink beer but I’m not a beer lover so a beer slushie isn’t for me. Also, I love that Emily won’t leave the house without a princess dress.

  21. I had no idea they did birthday parties at Wonderland…haven’t been there in ages. Beer Slurpie…hmm I’m not a big beer fan, but I do love my slurpies…so that might help the beer taste…you’d get loaded pretty quick though with drinking it through a straw methinks…

  22. It’d take a lot more than a beer slurpee to get me to watch Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers in 3D.

    Like, maybe a rye and coke slurpee laced with crystal meth.

  24. I’ve totally had a beer slurpee, and you may have too! It’s that beer in the fridge that gets too cold, and when you open it it is all slushy! I secretly like that one!

  37. I’m admittedly a little scared of beer slurpees, but then again there are restaurants in town that put beer in their ice-cream, and pretzel dipping sauce, and everything else you can think of and it’s FANTASTIC. So I vote: yes!

    And Rhi: How did I not know we had beer milkshakes? HOW?

  40. Once in college, a friend and I decided it would be a good idea to make beer floats. Yes, ice cream + beer. We insisted they were delicious.

    I’ve heard of places that make Guinness floats. I can see that. But really, Milwaukee’s Best and ice cream is not a good idea.

    I’d go for a slushy, though!

    Beer slurpies?! I dunno about that.

  49. I’m so ignorant of many child things, but were you serious about “Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers in 3-D”? Really? Or did they just throw on the glasses hoping to turn something into 3D. Am I going to have to have kids, just so I can know what all the moms are talking about? Yeah, that’s a good reason to start having children. At 43.
