Most often mine include #cocktail #wine #booze, the usual suspects. But on this day I was intrigued by this one... #whatIwouldtellmy16yearoldself or something like that. The whole point was about going back and telling your teenage self something. Of course I told mine to wear her bikini every day...but there were some really great messages that were being passed around. Things that young girls now days should hear.
Then it dawned on me...I have a 16 year old self, well 14, but that's the new 16 of today. So why am I not telling her? Because I am her MOTHER and I know NOTHING...I made a gazillion mistakes, I stayed in an abusive relationship, I didn't respect my self, I thought I was FAT, I tried drugs, I was mean to people...I KNOW STUFF...But she would nod and smile and "uh huh" me...If I said it all enough times something may sink in, but I thought a better way might be to meet her on her turf. Put it out there in a way and in a place that she is familiar and comfortable with...Where is that place?? FACEBOOK of course...So I posted this to her page...and here's hoping something sinks in...
Turn up your volume...it's all about the tunage...Cheers

HOW DID I GET HOME ????? Stinger....
2 ounces Citrus VODKA
1/2 ounce Peppermint Schnapps
2 ounces Pink Lemonade
Shake all ingredients together with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a quick glance around the room to ensure you know where you are...
I must say that with this cocktail it is critical to have a good Wingman...or men...Girls, I know first hand we all need to let lose and throw it down old school style. Just make sure to work it out with your wingman ahead of time so that you get home safe...
This way when you wake up the next morning, swearing that you will NEVER EVER EVER drink again, you:
1) won't wake up naked in a bus shelter
2) won't have any body parts pierced or tattooed
AND ABOVE ALL, YOU...
3) won't have a sex tape circulations over the world wide wine....... (unless it's extremely flattering and shot in black and white)
Glossary- WINGMAN - This is your gal pal that always has your back. The kind that will help you hide the body...WTH....
