Letting loose



Last night was the first time in about 6 years that I have had more than one full glass of alcohol. I was a huge party girl when I was super young and by the time I was 20 I essentially stopped drinking. On my 21st birthday I didn’t even have a drink! Occasionally I will have a small glass of wine that takes me the entire night to drink or a mixed drink but it is a rare occasion.

After the news from the RE and me obsessing about everything that could cancel this upcoming IUI I felt like I really needed to calm down and just focus on having fun for a minute and last night gave me the perfect opportunity. The neighborhood had a 21+”crawl”. It is essentially several homes “host” coctails and finger foods/appetizers and you travel on foot from house to house only spending about 20 minutes per house. There were 10 of us who hosted and then the whole rest of the neighborhood was invited totaling around 45 people. This crawl was country themed and E and I chose Japan. We served sake sunrise cocktails and edamame! The whole thing was so much fun. 

For reasons mentioned above I really want to have a good time and boy did I! I drank at almost every house and then at the last house was the after party. That’s where shit got crazy 🙂 dancing, drinking, eating, laughing. We all had a blast. I seriously had SO MUCH FUN! I had a total of: 2 rum punches, a carribean sunrise, 6 sake sunrises (I think my drinks tasted the best 😉 ), 4 jello shots and about 7 apple pie shots. I remember the whole night and I didnt even have a hangover this morning! It was like riding a bike, I can still hold my liquor damn well 😀 A bunch of us girls were even throwing some light tumbling moves which was fun and hilarious. E on the other hand had a rough night and a rougher morning LOL Poor guy did drink more than me but he has been sick ever since we got home last night around 1am. Poor guy. 

I feel much lighter. A little more of a pep in my step. I think I just needed a stress free night of not thinking about wanting to be pregnant and have a baby or the upcoming cycle. It was 21+ so there were no kids and none of the pregnant women in the neighborhood came so I only saw adults. It was quite awesome. I hope I can keep this attitude for a while longer because I like it! Now I just have to really get back to my nutrition program. Last night was totally off the wagon!
