We have a winner for the amazing California Wine Club giveaway! This lucky girl will get one free wine delivery, and if it’s anything like the wines they’ve sent me, she’s in for a treat.
But before I announce the winner, let’s talk about moms and booze.
The word on the street is that moms
DESPERATELY NEED enjoy a BOTTLE glass of wine EVERY DAY every now and then, ahem. Yet in this here community of Caltech moms I seem to be the only lush who actually goes for the wine (or beer, or whisky, or rum…) on a daily basis.
This will not be tolerated!
So what if all but 2 of my friends are either pregnant or breastfeeding? That should leave me with at least 2 drinking partners!
In need of someone to drink with besides the Dane, I started insidiously mentioning my wine club deliveries.
“Oh, guess what, I got two bottles of wine from the wine club yesterday! Awesome stuff! Now if only I had someone to help me taste it…”
“Can you believe I already got the second delivery! And I still have not opened the white from the first one! *sigh* It’s wasteful to drink such good wine alone!”
“Today a stranger knocked on my door bringing wine. I think I married the wrong guy.”
And then, the other day, the golden opportunity finally arrived: my neighbour threw a party, everyone got a little buzzed on sangria (no points for guessing who made it,) and when it looked like the party was over my beloved husband breezily suggested, “Why don’t I put the boy to bed and you take the girls for a Margarita?” Looks like I married the right guy after all!
So off we went to the local pub for “a Margarita.”
*fade to black*
I remember we played ridiculous music in the jukebox and that someone kept knocking drinks over. I don’t remember a lot more. The next morning there were a couple of worried husbands, a few neglected kids, and a number of miserably hungover ladies, and I still have NO idea where that platypus in our bathtub came from, but C has totally adopted it as a pet.
And now that we have all sworn off Margaritas, we finally have a date for tasting that wine!
Pasadena, your black-and-white days are numbered.
And now it’s time to announce the winner of a free month with the California Wine Club!
The lucky lady is…

The rest of you, do not despair – we will have another giveaway soon. In the meantime, remember that you can use our exclusive promo code BADMOM to get 10% of your California Wine Club orders! I’m totally getting a few as presents, especially for my
hunky ahem, dear father in law, who likes wine as much as I do. These wines are a perfect boss or in-law present because they look a LOT more expensive than they actually are, and you can wax lyrical about the “small, exclusive wineries” and “not sold in supermarkets.” Best snobby/drinky/foodie/showy gift EVER. Trust me on this one.
