Just Say No


Ohhhhhhhh man I feel like I’ve been run over by a train and its 100% my own fault. I had WAY too much wine at the Christmas party. It was fun but not definitely not worth what I’m feeling right now. Today I am reminded once again just why I don’t drink excessively. I can’t even believe that being hungover like this was a once a “normal” feeling when I was in college. Bahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Here Layla and I take our christmas picture pre-party:


Christie and I “trim” the tree (aka have a candid shot):


On the way to the party:


At the party:






We shared some delicious peanut butter pie and a petit four:


And then called it a night around 11. This morning I felt like I couldn’t eat ANYTHING (reason number 690 why I shouldn’t have more than 2 glasses of wine. Ever). First I tried a clif bar:


But I only ate a bite and then threw the whole thing away. My tummy did NOT like it today. I settled for an applesauce and some water:


I knew I knew as horrible as I felt, eating something would make me feel better so at work I made an 2 egg omelet with some dry whole wheat toast:


I did feel a little better after I ate that and had about 5 glasses of water, 2 cups of of ginger ale, two aleves and a huge coffee with stevia and half & half. Luckily, I have the bestest friend ever who brought me a delicious hot honey sandwich on ciabatta bread (ham, honey mustard and swiss pressed panini style) and a gingerbread man with the leg bitten off from Cravings. 🙂



She’s so sweet :). I forced down about 75% of the sandwich and half the cookie at lunch and then just now at the other half. I looooooove gingerbread!!!

I just got home from work and am going to lay down with an ice pack on my head for awhile. I’m going out to dinner with Christie, her brother and “our” parents tonight and need a breather first. Rest assured, there will be NO wine at dinner for me. I pretty much never want to see any again actually.

I’ll be back tonight!

    I hear ya. Whenever I drink more than two drinks these days, I feel so old. When did that happen? Certainly can’t drink like I did in my college (or post-college, when I was unemployed) days. It’s been longer for me, though, but it’s sad, isn’t it?

    And also, the last time I got waaaaay too drunk on wine was last year’s office party. Like you, I pretty much decided I did not want to EVER consume that much wine again, and I’ve pretty much stayed true to that. My evening was considerably worse than yours, though, as I threw up in a cab that night…. 🙁

    Jenna, I agree with Jenna 2- your blue dress is adorable! And your bestie looks fabulous as well- I must know- is she wearing flats with that gold number? Gorg- both of you.

    So sorry about your hangover ! I totally know how you feel- it’s so funny how as a grownup you just can’t party like you did as a kid. My rule is I never, ever drink nights before I have work or something important. Even a glass of wine or 2 makes me feel headachy/slow the next day!

    That sandwich was the perfect solution. When I am hungover, the only thing I want to do is eat carbs. All day.

    Feel better lady- it’s almost time for you to go home to your family!

    haha I always say “I’m never drinking again!!” after I drink too much and it last about a week before I crack and enjoy a glass! I’m going out tomorrow night after finals and you just reminded me I need to be mindful of how much I drink, unlike usual so I don’t feel like poo! You and your bff look so cute! hope din is fun tonight!

    Oh man Im sorry you are feeling so hungover!
    I can’t believe I used to do that all the time in university either- it is the worst feeling!
    Glad you are able to eat now…the nauseous feeling is never fun!

    I conveniently “fell in” the stock pot while giving Christie the grand tour. Actually, it wasn’t my fault. One of the chefs made me get in bc he said it was the perfect photo op. And although I made it without puking in the car, I definitely threw up about 50 times once I got home. NOT COOL. NOT COOL.

    Oh She Glows,

    errrrrrrrr an embarrassing number of glasses. You guys would probably never read my blog again if I told you.

    haha of course we would keep readin Jenna! I’d be embarrassed sometimes to admit how much I had to drink when I go out too but hey, it was fun at the time! we are still somewhat young (22!) and I say live it up (to a point! haha) b/c one day we will have children to take care of and not be able to go out with our girlfriends! take care hun

    Aww, as much as you hate hangovers the next morning sometimes it’s just soo much fun to do it up with your best friend. I just came back from a weekend in NYC with my best friend from college…. we are both definitely not from NYC but it fits our personalities really well… rituals like that are okay and help us put in perspective what “our stable habits” mean to us but why we need to let go once in a while!!!

    Just please don’t think you are judged for letting go for this one fun night. I have a feeling that you are way more disciplined than many of us readers!
