My wee one's father introduced me to alcoholic eggnog. I cannot for the life of me recall the brand. I'll need to check tomorrow and update this.

I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to alcohol. It has to be sweet. You'll never catch me shooting hard whiskey or tequila. I drank tequila once and oh my god I about threw up. Loved the effect, hated the taste.

But this? Holy Jezebel is it fantastic! I'm in love. It's strong stuff too!


I'll update with actual info tomorrow so you guys can, perhaps, find it. He got it from the commissary where he works, so it was way cheap, but I'm sure they sell it at regular liquor stores as well.
I think I'm having more fun buying birthday and Christmas presents for my girl toddler than she will have receiving them. I've never really been allowed to do so in the past. Family stuff I'd rather not get into right now, but there's something freeing in being able to give her and those I care about what I know in her case and hope in their case will make them happy. I'm still careful not to blow all my money, but I'm really proud of what I've gotten for my little one. I know she is going to be so happy, and I can't wait to see those reactions.

I'm not the type of parent who buys her toys and gifts just to buy them during the year, and so I think I will have a tendency to go a little insane during the holidays. This will be her first year with both myself and her father close. And while I'll not be at his house on Christmas morning for reasons I'll not share here, he'll be at mine and baby's apartment Monday morning. He'll bring her back Sunday night and she'll get to have another Christmas the next day! At her age, the actual day matters less than what happens, and it'll just make her feel special that she'll get two Christmases rather than only one.

As if she needs any further toddler eago stroking. Haha. She looks at me the other day and I was all, "I love you, princess." And she just sighs and was like, "Mommy, I'm a queen." Well, excuse me, little Elizabeth. Let me just polish off my royal curtsies. *grins*

Anyway, I've been having loads and loads of fun buying presents. Amazon is dangerous, Cyber Monday even more so, and someone needs to threaten me with loss of internet before we're eating carpet for the next month.

Okay, so I'm not that bad, but it's tempting to just take out a loan so I can put the world itself under that tree.

She deserves every inch of it.
