We've had a great week of merriment here at the Howerton house, and today we celebrated Jafta's 5th birthday. More details on that to come, including an explaination as to why I ended up wearing a "wench skirt" home from the show. But for now, a little fun with flasks.

Conclusion: The $8 margarita was good.


  1. I may be related to someone who filled a hydrogen peroxide bottle with Wild Turkey to smuggle liquor on a cruise.

  2. man i love this... so my style :) one time in college, i filled up an insulated coffee mug with smirnoff ice and drank it during night class - classy... in many ways. i don't judge you, i join you!

  3. Love this! I can't wait to see the photos of the event!!!

  4. Too funny! I worked at Medieval Times (Myrtle Beach) all through high school. I loved it - wearing a wench costume every day and getting paid for it was the best part!

  5. This is possibly one of the most helpful tips I've come across in the recent past. I feel like my time spent blog-reading was justified because of this info. Now, I don't have a flask, you think a 4 oz baby bottle would work? hehe

  6. Thank you for a laugh-out-loud moment on a Monday afternoon...and thank you for the great tip.

    I poured vodka in my child's water bottle to "enhance" my weak drinks on a cruise ship. I had to prevent him from drinking it more than once. TRUE CLASS, great drinks.

  8. Oh, you guys are the FUN parents!!! :)

  9. I just found this and I would like to say... I think that filling it with a medicine dropper instead of a flask is like +1000! I don't have funnels but I definitely have medicine droppers!

  10. I think this is like a +1million. I don't have a funnel, but I definitely have one of these AND an empty flask!


talk to me.
