Breaking news: Crown Publishing imprint Three Rivers Press, a division of Random House New York, has acquired, in a pre-empt, world rights to Reasons Mommy Drinks. In other words, Mommy got a book deal. Eeeee!

Mommy will be taking a brief hiatus from posting on the blog while she focuses her energy on writing the book.  You know, with all her mountains of time in between managing her full-time career, raising you, and neglecting Daddy.

Follow Reasons Mommy Drinks on Facebook for more cocktail recipes, parenting confessions and stupid unicorn jokes.

Stay tuned for more details on the official publication date!

DRINK: Champagne.

    whatever. I’m a hater. Not at all jealous. Not at all. I am totally stoked for you and jealous. Just think- soon you’ll get to drink Cristal instead of Moet. I’ll be drinking a Midori Sour- because it’s green. Do you think I could get it served with a side of envy? I need to know how you did this because I want a book deal too!
