We are 10 years married, November 15th, 2008, and have not been able to share the experience together of having a few drinks! Except that one time on our 1st anniversary!
Reason being, firstly, we were set up by our moms! Not in a bar or party. Our moms. Sweet! We moved in together here in Summerside and shortly after our first pregnancy happened and engagement! What a happy time! Would not change a thing! Nothing!
So that being said, I was not drinking while pregnant. I was not drinking while breastfeeding either. That only lasted about 6 months and formula was used. So our first anninversary we went out together in Charlottetown at Baba’s bar. This was the last time I drank with Chris!
Sometime after, pregnancy #2! Breastfeeding for a year. Pregnancy #3, #4, and #5 and breastfeeding each child, each with a 2-3 month window of not pregnant or breastfeeding in between. Not much time for any fun!
So here we are, year 10. I’m not pregnant. I’m not nursing. I got some freedom! We were low on grocery items and did not have the ingredients to make my favourite drink, Bahama Mamas. We thought about my dad and a memorable drink he makes. Harvey Wallbangers!
We each had 4 drinks! 8 shots of liqure each. Within an hour or two. I don’t really remember. Oh what fun!! We talked and talked and laughed and laughed! Oh the social we were missing all these years! I was pretty tipsy! But not overly, well kind of. Hahaha.
Oh yes! I have to mention this! I was laughing so much, I pulled a muscle (or ligament) in my neck! Right beside my throat! Hahaha!!! It hurt to swallow and talk. But it was so funny!
Thank you Chris for giving me a great night! Xoxo
