Sharped Dressed Man, A Confession and Tequila!

Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone! The best day to go to the movies or the mall or the park and not have to fight any crowds.  Even attendance in church goes down on this day!  As most of you know, I don't like football.  In fact, I'd rather get a root canal than sit and watch a football game. Unless of course, the Texans suddenly win a game or something miraculous  like that! Then, and only then do I become a fan and attempt to watch it, but really not giving a crap about it, just that we win!  Anyway, I declined invitations to a few parties to watch the game and instead went to the park and walked 3 miles.  It is such a beautiful Spring-like day here, that I didn't even feel the sweat dripping down my face.  And now, after I finish this blog, I will return outside and curl up on our back porch swing, and immerse myself in a book I've been putting off reading.  Envy me.

So, I have a confession to make.  Cue in the Law and Order SVU music.  I broke my self-imposed alcohol ban yesterday.  I know, I know, I suck.  But I did complete a whole 37 days! That counts for something right?  I'm not totally disappointed in myself, because as I said, I did complete at least a month.  And I am proud of that. And perhaps three months was a little extreme for me.  I did not allow myself to have even a glass of wine.  And that is severely extreme, to me.  But I learned some things about myself, I learned that even under the most tempting of temptations, I  am able to say no. I learned that I am strong even when my life is chaotic.  And I think that is pretty amazing!  Nothing major occurred to make me break this alcohol ban.  It just happened.  And it was only one drink, I didn't get sloppy drunk or drunk even.  So that's my confession, what's my penance? :)

Saturday was also pretty cool because I got to see Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top in person! He was making a special appearance at a local establishment.  He was there promoting his new tequila, Pura Vida.  The bottle is very cute! It looks like a fat I Dream of Jeannie bottle!  It's blue with a silver top.  I was there with Michelle and Maricela. We had to wait in this huge line that snaked around the store.  Luckily, we arrived early and our wait was not too long.  The girls each took a picture with him but since they do not want their face on the internet, I cannot post them.  But I will post Billy's picture:

I'm headed back outside to enjoy the rest of my afternoon.  I hope you all do the same.

Oh I have been cleaning up a storm my friend... and it is rainy today, so I am going to curl up with a good book on my couch and just be sleepy! Happy Sunday to you (I hope you got one of those fat I dream of Jeanie Bottles!)

No biggie, it was just a drink. Are you continuing on your alcohol ban for a while? It has never been a big deal for me, I can take it or leave it, and I hate the feeling you get when you're hung over.
Hope you had a great Sunday :)

Yvonne said...

Shady -not likely!

AG - Good for you! No, I didn't get one, I'm not a tequila drinker.

Alessandra - Not sure yet. I am not a big drinker either, I was just challenging myself. More than anything, I detest cheap wine hangovers! THE.WORST.EVER!!! lol

Sounds like a lovely walk. The tequila bottle is so cute; I can't drink it, makes me sick. I've had a few beers myself Yvonne. But I made it a month with no problem, so I'm happy too.
I like live football games, I only watch the Superbowl game because my daughter has a little family party when it is on. We all bet and my grandson Jordan won $24.

Belle - I think the bottle is super cute! My sister won some money too! I don't know how much though.
