Come Clean Friday

I wore a Snuggie in a bar.  Not because I was participating in a pub crawl or because I thought it was cute.   I was freezing and it was the only thing in my car that could keep me warm.  It was a white elephant gift a couple years ago that quickly became the dog blanket.  I can mentally hear everyone breathe a sigh of relief.

We were watching football in a bad ass beer bar (The Friendly Spot), and I was wearing a pink Snuggie.  Okay, the husband was watching football.  I was tweeting and deciding what team has the best uniform.  The Friendly Spot is an outdoor bar and on this chilly evening, even a beer buzz couldn’t keep me warm.  So, I shamefully put on the Snuggie.  At first I tried to wear it like a chic shawl.  Yeah right…a chic, fleece, pepto pink shawl.  I eventually wiggled it up around me and wore it like a bathrobe.  Just like they do in the commercials.  The husband was proud.  So there is my Come Clean Friday story.

PS – If you are ever in San Antonio and like beer, you must visit The Friendly Spot.

Deuces and Smooches

Prosecco and groceries!

As soon as I heard Brittany, my Whole Foods cashier, utter the words “deuces and smooches” to fellow patrons, I knew we were long lost friends.  The best part is that my outstanding grocery shopping experience started before I met my new bestie.  It started when I found the wine bar. Yes, Whole Foods has a wine bar.  There are only 3 in the country and the Park Lane location is one of them.  The bartender (I can’t remember his name but let’s call him Antonio) gave us the scoop.  The Lemmon Ave store is also getting a bar soon.  Bring on the champagne!

I was prepared to get my flirt on with Antonio so I could shop with my Prosecco.  It could have been a bit awkward since the bf was with me, but thankfully they don’t hold you hostage at the bar.  No need to pound your vino!  I was able to sip and shop like the classy lady that I am.

Seriously though, what a brilliant idea.  I almost didn’t care that I spent $80 on two bags of groceries. I’m even headed back tonight to pick up the makings for my soon to be signature deviled eggs.  Hmm…Prosecco and prosciutto.  I think I have my secret ingredient.

Deuces and smooches!
