Mommy’s Time Out

Mommy\'s Time OutWhen reading comments on other people’s blogs, I’ll follow links for women that share my name. It doesn’t have to be exact, just similar. I don’t know why I do this, but it’s lead to some great finds.

Thanks to Kat I’ll have the snarkiest birthday gifts for my girlfriends. Who cares if it tastes like swill!? The label is worth it.

But then again, my sense of humor is a little off. I refer to these as mommy’s juice box.


A few months ago I told my friend Amy that I have the perfect business for us. For my birthday I had wanted to have a wine tasting party. I looked for places that host that sort of thing. No luck. Then I went looking for a caterer of sorts that specializes in that. Again, no luck. I decided that Amy and I could do catered wine tasting parties at people’s homes. It would be like a normal catered event with heavy appetizers but also some education about wine. She said we should do it. We only have a few hurdles to cross

  1. We’re not sommeliers
  2. We’re not caterers
  3. We lack funds

This wine renews my interest in my idea. How awesome would it be to have your mom friends over one evening for a fancy-shmancy wine tasting and have this bottle whipped out? I would probably be forced to couple it Road Kill Red.

3 smart people left their mark:

    OK, Cat lets do it!

    It would be most awesome. That’s a terrific idea for a business.

    That’s funny, the way you follow your name to other blogs. I just searched for variations on the spelling of my own name on facebook (yes, I know) and discovered several people with first and last names eerily similar to mine.

    I am laughing so hard right now because I followed your comment on her blog too… and found THIS! So funny!
    That wine gets me rolling every time I see it…
