The latest craving
M came home from work Friday night after stopping off at the Liquor Barn for all of the party's libations. He walked in the door positively giddy. He had found the Holy Grail of beer- Harpoon's Winter Warmer, which I'd never heard of and he said he'd been unable to find since leaving Colgate. He proclaimed it his all-time favorite beer, and he just grinned at the boxes. He also brought in Goose Island Christmas Ale and Samuel Adams. I've only missed "tasty beverages" twice since I've been pregnant- once at the tennis tournament in Cincy when I kept passing Sammy A stands and once when we were out to dinner for M's birthday and I smelled his Cabernet. Other than that, I've been happily sans-drink. Looking at all that beer on my kitchen counter was a bit too much for this beer-loving girl to tolerate, though. I don't think I've ever wanted a beer so badly in my life. Is it bad that I want my daughter to be born so I can have a Boston Lager? Probably, so act like I didn't say it!!
Either way, I enjoyed the party while sipping apple punch, and everyone had a good time. It stayed pretty low-key, and even Otis was cooperative (thanks to his Gentle Leader). Here are some pics...
