My Son is 14 and other Randomness

-My son turned 14 years old yesterday. He got 2 pairs for cleats from Love, two Under Armour shirts that help keep out the heat (?) from me, and $300 from his Dad! I would say that is a good birthday!

-Thanks to Facebook, I met up with one of my junior high school friends on Sunday and we had a blast catching up. She is also going to be a bad influence in telling me about these low cost wines that she found.

-Speaking of wine, I am not a drinker but there are just times when I need a little something to take off the edge. Hard liquor is too much and so I recently discovered wine spritzers. Yes, I am a softie, but spritzers are right up my alley. Now if this Seven Daughters wine and Yellow Tail wine that my girl told me about are as good as she says, I may not need to "spritz" them and can have them on chill when the time is appropriate. LOL

-I just held a newborn baby boy. I miss that feeling, that smallness, the innocence and helplessness. I didn't miss him taking a dump while I was holding him!

-I spend way too much money on iTunes but it's like a sickness! I don't want to take a chance and download a virus on Limewire.

-My favorite gospel song is "His Eye is On the Sparrow" and I think the best version is by Tanya Blount and Lauryen Hill from Sister Act II. It brings tears to my eyes everytime!

Well, that's all for now!

Okay I think we have similar taste in wine. For me the yellow tail is a bit strong but good. It is a aussie wine, which are highly regarded.

BUT- have you tried "mikes hard lemonade"? Not a wine, I know but it is a easy one. Cranberry hard ice by smirnoff? Since you like a spritzer.
I'm not a drinker but have been know to enjoy these.

It's the chef in me. ; )

Try you some wine and Sprite.

It's a quick fix for me.

I am a huge fan of Beringer's White Merlot. ;)

When it comes to alcohol, yep you a lightweight.

What is up with FB and all these Junior High renunions. What happened to high school reunions. My family members have gone to several junior hight reunions.

I miss holding newborns to. It makes me sad to think that my days are over. I swear if I had the money I might end up with another "accident."
