Captain, My Captain

One of upsides of not being pregnant yet? I can drink when I want to. Captain Morgan is my weakness and it can make any day better in about two shots.

Every year since I was about fifteen, my father takes a day off from work and he and I hit the malls running. It is our special "Daddy/Daughter" time and I cherish it. It is our yearly Christmas shopping trip. We start off early, hit Starbucks for some Peppermint Mocha Lattes and then it is off to the mini malls and then the big mall. We always do lunch at Michael's Deli. We even eat the same wraps for cryin out loud. Top it off for dinner with President Margaritas (tequila is my other weakness) and nachos at Chili's.

Today, we pretty much decided that we can not afford for me to fly up for my shopping trip with Dad. I am heartbroken. For me, the Christmas season does not even start until that trip. Plus, none of the stores I usually shop in are down here. My Dad won't let on, but I know he is hurt.

I am mixing a triple. TRIPLE. Captain & Diet Coke with lime. Captain, my captain, how you can put a smile on my face!

  1. Aw, I'm sorry that you can't go see your dad for your traditional shopping trip, that really sucks :(

    I hope you enjoy your captain morgan, that's like the only benefit of not being pregnant... well, that and not vomiting.

    Russell and I tried Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum the other day and it was DELICIOUS!
