First a note: Happy Mother’s day to all, from your favorite CHILDLESS MOMMY BLOGGER, ME! Second, I know a lot of you have given me some great awards and I have not, as of yet, had time to respond to them, but I promise I will in some way. So, thank you and know that a “fun with awards” type post is on the way.
Now on to the important stuff. Today I would like to introduce this week’s reggie. I call her, “the blogger who I would most like to have drinks with.” (There are a lot of you who fall into that category, but this girl is way high up on that list…) Maybe it’s the title of her blog that makes me feel particularly boozy when I think of her or maybe it’s just her darned hilarious commentary. Every time this blogger stops by my blog, it’s a joy and she leaves a gem. I’m not sure where she lives. I don’t know her real name. (Though I assume it includes the word Jen…or maybe Tonic.) However, I can assure you that if I find out I will head to her house and have copious amounts of wine with the lady, my treat. Or at the very least, I’d let her cart my picture around the city of her choosing. See below for more on that. Her writing is funny, when she makes a connection with you it’s authentic and real, she talks about music, and she even makes videos. The only complaint I ever have about her is that I wish she posted MORE frequently (because I love the broad), but I can only assume she has a life and sh*t and maybe even a job. Anyway, if you don’t know her, you should get to know her, right away, like it’s an emergency. She’s that good. And if these beautiful “reggie” pics don’t convince you that she’s a keeper, then I will provide even further evidence below. Without further adieu… introducing the G-force in this little corner of the blogging world:
SIPS OF JEN AND TONIC
As you can see, Jen really put her all into creating these reggie pics by taking over the stool softening aisle of a local Walgreens. She endured looks, she endured taunts that included insensitive commentary like: “What’s the matter, you eat too many breaded meats?” She’s a dedicated blogger. I love her music posts. I love her posts on her blog teammates – 1 and 2. And her written stuff, OH, it’s so funny. For example, Jen found a dating site where you can make fun suggestions of stuff to do with your date. In that piece she included the following pasttime to enjoy with a lucky, male candidate:
“We can…dress your penis in a tiny stovepipe hat and make it impersonate Lincoln by giving the Gettysburg address.”
She talks about the horror of team meetings in the workplace here and in “A Dog’s Life” she discusses the wisdom a dog can give you. It’s good stuff. Really good stuff. All of it, truly, either captures your interest or makes you laugh. On top of all that, Jen makes you want to be her friend. I know I do. I think of her as completely AMAZE-BALLS, which is my higest compliment. So, do the right thing this Mother’s day (after you call your mom that is) and FOLLOW JEN AND TONIC.
Read a few posts of hers and you’ll be drunk on the fact that another talented soul exists in the universe.
Thank you and you’re welcome.
Much love, happiness, and humor,

I only recently discovered Jen and she has already become one of those bloggers who literally makes me squeal a little when I see she’s posted (you are of course another one such blogger, moms.)
and you are for me too, ems. we’re in the mutual blogging love society, i swear it! though i admit this move has almost killed me…so, it’s taking me a minute to get to the blogs i love – LIKE YOURS. but, i will soon. i promise. and yes, jen is amaze-balls. completely. sm
The Waiting: Thank you so much!! I just want to let you know that I ate a chalupa and smoke the other day and LIVED TO TELL THE TALE. I’m cheating death one bad taco at a time.
i get heartburn after every time i have mexican’t. and i still go back for more. i will never stop. sounds like i have to read em’s blog. lol. xo, sm
The first picture is priceless. I think she was trying to act out what a person looks like once colonaid starts working. Or perhaps that’s what you look like if you need to buy colonaid.
i know it’s glorious. to put your face BETWEEN the products is clearly a stroke of genius. such is jen. lollll. xo, sm
Pink: You caught me. But I must tell you, if you’re going to drop a deuce in the middle of a Walgreen’s, you have to do it with conviction. And I think I did just that.
i always say ‘drop the kids off at the pool’. lol. xoxo
All of her posts make me pee my pants. True story.
Sounds like you need to go into the “Wetness Protection” program. *cue laugh track* I’m sorry, it’s Sunday….and I’m intoxicated.
Sister, you and me both!
wah! i want to be intoxicated. lol. momma loves you both. xo, sm
Reblogged this on Sips of Jen and Tonic and commented:

Thank you, thank you! I loved what I read so far and I’ll be definitely back for more 🙂 Xoxo
Sweet mother!!! OHMIGOD. I’ve literally been too busy to read or comment on anyone’s blog this whole weekend, and the first moment I sign on I see this. LOVED IT. Of course, I am my own favorite subject.
You and I drinking could be the most wonderfully dangerous time ever. I’m up in Portland, but I will be getting down to your part of the country quite a bit in the future. Meeting you is on my “must do” list so we’ll have to make some debauchery happen.
YOU’RE amazeballs. xoxo
Jen (yes, my REAL name)
P.S. Send me a picture and I’ll escort you around town and treat you the way a classy dame like yourself should be treated.
i am SO sending you that picture. count on it! and poooooorrrtland. i want to go there so badly. wifesy has some friends there and i have some cousins. so, done and done. we will have a real world meetup in the not so distant future. glad you liked the post. couldn’t wait to do yours. much love, sm
Happy Mothers Day, SM. I’m a childless Mother as well, just happen to married to a man. So happy childless mothers day to those other women as well who’ve not bore children for one reason or another and to you as well. I fight your fight, despite the fact I’m a straight (and BTW I hate those freakin’ labels).
i am so with you, brig. i hate labels as well. so, childless mommy bloggers unite! lol, in that sense and in the ‘good fight’ we are definitely on the same team. 😉 much love, mother
BTW, I didn’t mean that I’m “a straight,” GOOD GRIEF. I mean that I am who I am and have never considered being on this team on that. I’ve had too many friends, from all possible persuasions. Anyhoo, Happy Mothers Day. :).
I am quite fond of Jen and Tonic. The stovepipe penis hat thing totally made me spit coffee all over my computer and probably some fat guy standing next to me as well.
I have recently discovered Jen as well and you are right, she is very funny. Thanks for the Mother’s Day wishes mother. 🙂 xoxo
Huzzah! J&T is one of my favorites!
Loved this post, and of course I love Jen! Her humor just rocks and she is also amazingly perceptive and intelligent.
Jen n Tonic..i love the name 🙂
heading over to check her posts Sweet Mom.. 🙂
Jen is one of the best people on the entire internet. She makes me giggle like a teen stuck in an elevator with Justin Bieber. The teens like him, right?
Also your blog is straight up giggles too.
Jen and Tonic is the best company you can get… in the whole interspace, and has good flavour and is addictive too. Like in real life you never know where you end up, when you get a lot. Jen and I ended up in hotelbed on business trip (yes she got job, wish she would quit and blog more or blog while at work). I told her not to eat the coated meat, it’s for cats only, now she needs stool-thing. tsk tsk tsk. Epic photos… No wonder she’s on the homeland list, but it’s nice to have company on that list. We go Japan soon, Cosmo will pay, right Jen? And while we’re at it, I bet we can swing over UK for a nice cuppa tea and a biscuit or a Jen and Tonic style pub crawl. Happy Mothers Day to you too Sweet Mother 🙂
