Where oh where has the time gone?!?! I sweat it was JUST Friday and now all of a sudden it's Wednesday?! How in the heck did that happen?
Magic - it must have been magic.
Please consider this my weekly year without alcohol post - and you're welcome to think of this being the week I failed.
I failed at updating my blog on Monday afternoon like I always do - but I did not fail at abstaining from alcohol this week! Whoo hoo one more week down!
This year has just been flying by; I can't believe I've already made it 13 weeks!!! Oh there's that pesky number thirteen - it's bad luck, right?? That must be why I failed to post on Monday! (Really I have just been crazy busy the last 5 days and I pretty much completely forgot about it. But if I can blame my failure on the evil omens of the number 13, I'll go with that!)
Last week Monday - Friday was simple to go without alcohol, just like it normally is. I don't really think about wanting a drink during the week anymore - and that makes me happy! I did have a dream that Jake and I were at a beer tasting party and I had to refrain from trying any of them - that was a bit difficult to deal with so luckily it was just a dream! :)
I woke up on Saturday, started my day with vanilla Shakeology and then headed to a family girls' weekend - it was great!!! There were about 20 of us women from the family who all met up at a hotel with some children tagging along and we had a great time.
It's not very often that we all get together and I don't remember the last time we ever had this big of a reunion so it was a great weekend for sure! We got to swim, play cards, talk and just hang out - couldn't ask for much more! Drinks were had but, again, it wasn't too depressing to pass them up.
My sister thought she was so clever to take a picture of me buying a box of wine - here it is! haha. No one else really felt like leaving the car to get my grandma wine so I took one for the team :)
I still think that my first drink after the year will be a glass of champagne (though not a large one - it'd really go straight to my head after not drinking for a year!)
