Wordless Wednesday — When Bloggers Drink…

by Janice



You know you are with bloggers, when drinks and food must be photographed before they are consumed.
This past weekend, I tasted the best Cosmo I have ever had thanks to Kimberley Blaine‘s fantastic husband. It was so good, it called for an iPhone shoot. The first photo is Kimberley taking her shots and the second photo is my iPhone shot.

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:


And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!


Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Did you know that Susan and I actually started out online with toy stores? Yes and we still have them. One of our favorite gift ideas for a child’s birthday is an educational kids rug that inspires play and learning. They are surprisingly affordable.

This is so true! I love it! I drive my husband crazy because I’m constantly taking pictures of our meals before we eat them! :)

5 Anne February 8, 2012 at 12:29 am

Ha! Cosmos are so yummy – they’re one of those dangerous drinks. Way too easy to drink too many!


6 Jody February 8, 2012 at 12:33 am

By the time a blogger eats their meal the food id cold LOL :)



7 debi9kids February 8, 2012 at 12:43 am

heehee… totally true!
Can’t have a drink without photographing it first. LOL


8 Annie February 8, 2012 at 12:45 am

That is so funny! And now? I want to take you out for cocktails. Soon Janice! We will do it!


9 Deb - Mom of 3 Girls February 8, 2012 at 12:50 am

That’s why it’s so much fun to get together with other bloggers – not only does nobody look at you strangely for photographing your food, but they’re all doing it too. :)


10 Naomi February 8, 2012 at 12:57 am

I take a lot of pictures of food and drink, too. It gives a much different perspective, doesn’t it?


11 JamericanSpice February 8, 2012 at 1:16 am

That is so true!


12 Samantha February 8, 2012 at 3:52 am

lol, looks like a lot of fun!
Happy Wednesday!



13 Diana - Teacher Mom February 8, 2012 at 6:28 am

Ha, ha! That caption couldn’t be more true!


14 HouseTalkN February 8, 2012 at 7:07 am

This cracked me up! I totally took a picture of our “his and hers” beers! Now, to find the picture…
I linked up “Foggy Morning” in the meantime. Thank you so much for hosting!

This made me giggle!! I once read an article that said you can always spot a blogger in public when you see someone taking photos of their food:)


16 Melanie February 8, 2012 at 7:33 am

LOL, looks very familiar.


17 Nancy February 8, 2012 at 7:57 am

A great shot of a YUMMY looking Cosmo – my Peeps will love this for Bunko tonight! :-)


18 Serendipity is Sweet February 8, 2012 at 8:13 am

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Cosmo, yum!


19 prasti February 8, 2012 at 8:15 am

haha! true that!


20 Maya February 8, 2012 at 8:40 am

That is very funny because it is so true!! Great pictures!


21 Dagmar February 8, 2012 at 9:01 am

Isn’t that true, we always think “How can I use that for my blog.” LOL


22 shelly February 8, 2012 at 9:34 am

You could do a whole blog post titled “you know you’re with a blogger when…” LOL


23 Beth February 8, 2012 at 10:04 am

I resemble the photo taking before consuming WAY too much. Of course, I think we started doing this before blogging when we went to Disney.


24 Susie's Homemade February 8, 2012 at 10:04 am

LOL! As a blogger, I always take pictures of what I am eating. I just posted one yesterday:-)


25 Cheryl February 8, 2012 at 10:08 am

so true we can’t do anything without taking a photo first just incase we are going to blog about it


26 Shana D February 8, 2012 at 10:51 am

haha so true. I am always taking pictures of my food and wine when I remember to actually buy wine.


27 Run DMT February 8, 2012 at 11:01 am

It always tastes better once your photograph it.


28 Chris February 8, 2012 at 12:05 pm

I can’t resist taking a picture of a meal which has been prepared beautifully, not so much with my drinks though haha ;)


29 Kimberley - The Go-To Mom February 8, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I pretty much take a picture or video of EVERYTHING. The biggest challenge for me is which camera to use! LOL! My hubby makes great cosmos!


30 SoCoMom 4James February 8, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Yup — that’s how bloggers drink all right! Cheers!


31 Julie {Angry Julie Monday} February 8, 2012 at 1:39 pm

These photos are so Janice……


32 Naomi February 8, 2012 at 3:59 pm

It’s always so nice to be around other bloggers, who don’t care if they have to wait until you photograph your meal before eating…


33 Joanne February 8, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Sorry for the duplicate thumbnail-I was having Linky issues.


34 Rona February 8, 2012 at 7:27 pm

I think I’ll have a glass of wine now.


35 Victor February 20, 2012 at 11:47 am

Love this. Whenever I prepare an awesome dish for the family, I always snap a picture and upload it to my blog on Tumblr :P


36 Moe March 16, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Ha! I was out this week and ordered a yummy Bahama Mama. I was about to slurp it up when my husband said, “What are you doing? You haven’t take a picture yet!” Helps to have an intern (I would have said assistant but they get paid).


37 Cindy March 17, 2012 at 8:32 am

I think it’s just crazy nice :) But is that bloggers have so much passion about everything or it’s the nature of their “job” ? It may appear silly to other people but i think it really captures “the” things going in our life. Little, big things. (it is common to eat, but we cannot live without eating)

Sometimes though it really is silly:P The other day i saw an ant in my bathroom, walking in circles. I thought “it soooo coool!” i grabbed the phone, made a crappy video….and when i was about to share my Golden Globe material with others..i realized it’s not so cool anymore :P

There’s gotta be a name for it in psychology…dont know..
“compulsive excitement” ? :)
