I Will Try Anything With The Word Beer In It

Posted By on March 28, 2010

This morning I drove like one million miles to my sister’s house. She lives a whopping 62 miles from me. 62!! She moved last fall and I had yet to be out to visit her in her new place. Because she lives 62 miles from me and I’m too lazy to clean my bathroom, let alone drive all that way. But we had big plans this weekend! We were going to create her registry for her baby shower!

Oh, didn’t I tell you? My sister is pregnant! With a little girl! She’s due at the beginning of June! I’m so excited! BABIES! I’m going to be an auntie again!

So I was all set to drive out there on Saturday and go shopping with her and look at all sorts of small, pink, cute, fluffy things! But then she texted me – she fell down the stairs and sprained her ankle. She and Baby Girl are OK, but probably not the best idea to be walking around stores when she was gimpy.

She decided to rest up on Saturday and I went out today and we got all the registering done. She even told me something she wanted that wasn’t at Target that I’m going to get her, so my shopping is done too!

I’m pretty sure it is no secret that I love kids! I WANT to have a child of my own one day. Since this year I’ll be the ripe old age of 33, I have been thinking about it quite a bit. I know that regardless of whether I get married or meet the man of my dreams, I will be a mother. Whether I have to adopt or go to the sperm bank or steal one (KIDDING!), I will have a kid. And if I have to do it on my own, so be it. In fact, I’ve pretty much decided that I’ll probably start going down that road after I turn 35, since hello! CLOCK! TICKING!

Anyway, spending an afternoon in the baby aisles of Target and Walmart will really make your ovaries ache. The stuff! It is so cute! And my sister, who already has a child, is all willy nilly about the registering, figuring she’ll get stuff regardless. Whereas I’m like “YOU NEED TO GIVE PEOPLE SOMETHING TO BUY YOU! ALSO, YOU NEED THIS WHOLE AISLE!”

(Do you see why she took the scanner gun thingy away from me?)

It was a good day. We got to spend some time together, we got to ooh and ahh over cute little pink things and I got to try pizza beer.

Pizza beer, you ask? What on Earth is that? And what does it taste like? Well, I shall tell you. It tastes like you’d imagine. Like someone put a little pizza sauce into your beer. Not the worst thing in the world, but also something I probably never need to drink again.

Apparently it’s “beer so good, it needs its own wine glass.”

I don’t even know what that means. All I know that I’m offended as a wine glass owner and as a wine drinker.

So, how was your weekend? If you’re wondering, I am still fighting the Death Plague. IT IS DAY 12 PEOPLE! TWELVE!

    You’ll be a great mom whenever (or however) it happens for you. I’m so jealous of the cute baby stuff @ Target! Here in Canada there is no such thing and a lot of the baby stuff seems crazy overpriced and not as much selection as south of the border. It’s great that you got some sister-time in!

    My stomach is turning just looking at the bottle. Yuck.

    You are going to be the BEST Mom one day – you’re already the best Auntie. 🙂

    Agreed on the great mom comment! Any chance you will be better and free on Thursday? I so need a sitter as my daycare lady is taking the whole week off. Did I mention that I found this out on Friday night…yeah…awesome.

    Anytime you want to come out for a visit and help me register for the little boy…that would be great. Hope you feel better soon!

    I hear ya about the baby aisles. They are pure EEEEEEEVIL. I still shop that section for my now 3-year-old daughter and there are her (cute, fine, whatever) clothes right next to the teeny tiny onesies and the footy pajamas and the CUTENESS and why don’t I have a second kid yet and I need a baby NOW AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! And then I take a deep breath and bring my purchases to the front of the store and figure out how in the heck I can start adoption #2 and maybe just not tell my husband till the baby comes home. Kidding! (Only kind of not.)

    OK, so this is my first time commenting, and it is about the pizza beer, how lame is that?! I don’t know that it would be good when drank alone, BUT, it is excellent in a pizza dough that can be made at home. I bought the same beer from Woodman’s, a store here in the boonies (of Chicago), and met the people on the label. The beer is the wet ingredient in the pizza dough, and the pizza the dough makes is really good, you should try it sometime!

    And yeah, the baby aisles at Target get my ovaries in an uproar too, and I already have all the kids that I want. Stay away, stay far away!!

    Pizza beer, eh? I like pizza… I like beer… No, no, no! They may go great together, but some things just shouldn’t be mixed 🙂

    Why wait until 35? HAVE ONE NOW!!!

  13. Pizza Beer sounds like those jars of peanut butter and jelly mixed together. Good in theory, not so good in practice. It also sounds like something you’d find in a “grown up” version of Bertie Botts beans.

    Your sister’s registry sounds like my wedding registry. I had to follow Will all over the store saying “please don’t add the 60 inch flat screen to our registry.” and “nobody wants to buy us a second Wii” and “why the hell did you scan in all of that skimpy underwear?? Undo! Undo!”

    Wow, Spring’s really got folks all baby-focused! You’re the second blogger this week to talk about this stuff. Ha!

    Having hit the big 3-5, I’m glad the only aching my ovaries feel is a monthly reminder that I’m NOT preggers. : )
