The morning after....

After a fun night out with some girlfriends, I woke up to this pile on my vanity. It made me laugh--it looked like the aftermath of a night I might of had in my 20's.
I sure didn't feel like I was in my 20's when I woke up.....gone are the days of having a few cocktails, and not even breaking a sweat the next day. Actually, I don't even touch hard liquor. Haven't in over 7 years. I L-O-V-E me a gin and tonic. I actually earned the nickname "gin-Gina" by some dear friends many moons ago. The problem isn't my love of gin, it's the fact that gin doesn't love me back. And tequila? No, no, no, no, no, no. I miss Margarita's like nobody's business, but that stuff is off limits. Gives me the shakes when the sun comes up.

I am a wine devotee'. Almost always red, but in the summer, I'll switch to white.
I pretty much have a 2 glass limit, and that is even pushing it for me. It's not that I get all loopy or sloppy, but the next day, I just can't muster up any energy.
And WHY on EARTH is it, that children just know these things??? It's as if my little lambs send each other signals at night, and make a pact to wake up early the mornings after mommy goes out. Happens every time.
Those are the days I am most thankful for concealer and highlighter.

I am typing this as my little one got me up at 6. They know when you have had fun drinking and need your sleep. Those are always the days they get up extra early. I should give up the liquor but I love my vodka too much. Love all your fab jewlery laying out, girls nights are the best!

You looked GORGEOUS Thursday night, as you always do! Were there heavy pours at North? I had prosecco, which was the lightest pour on the menu, I think. I hate being hungover, it's the worst thing in the world.
