on the podcasts…

Is inflation going down? Getting better? Jay explains it all. We talk about LMP’s tragic death and why Billy Bush is yet again problematic. Also – Mentos and their joyful commercials, a few phrases we’re not sure we can say anymore and a lot more….

So excited to have best-selling author, journalist and podcaster, Jo Piazza, on the podcast! This was such a refreshing conversation – Jo has an open and honest relationship with alcohol and gives herself the space to question and examine it, which is what The Sober Mom Life is all about.

The Real Sober Moms with Erin W. The Sober Mom Life

Today’s Real Sober Mom, Erin, is here with a story that is so relatable.  In high school, alcohol gave Erin her first taste of ‘fitting in’. She leaned on it to socialize on the weekends throughout her teens and early 20s, and she never gave it much thought. Her drinking always seemed ‘normal’ when compared with those around her! Once she began having children, though, alcohol slowly started to seep into her weekday life, as wine became a ‘reward’ for making it through the intense days being a working mom.  In 2016, things took a turn. Erin experienced a devastating pregnancy loss at around 20 weeks. In the aftermath, therapy and community support did not feel like enough. She began to lean on alcohol to cope. The progression of her drinking was slow, but she eventually found herself often drinking a bottle a night, and something within her began to whisper… was she an alcoholic? But the term didn’t quite seem to fit.  Erin felt stuck in a pattern of questioning and moderation. Then, last fall, she found the Sober Mom Life community. This space helped her see a path forward! She has now been sober since January 1st, and in that time she has experienced so many big sober milestones. Erin is slated to run The Boston Marathon on her 100th day of sobriety, and she can’t wait to experience how good she will feel on that day!  Erin wants to share words of wisdom that a longtime sober friend told her:  The elevator stops at every floor, and you can get off at any floor.  My mocktail recipe book, ‘No Ethanol Needed’ is finally here!

don’t miss…

You guys are loving this activewear set from Target! The color is a bit of a stretch for me, but I’m so glad I chose it over my usual beige/tan set. Perfect for these gloomy winter days, and I’ll be wearing it all spring, too. The fabric feels SO much more expensive and really holds everything in. I’m wearing small in the sports bra and leggings and medium in the top.

My overalls are back in stock! They’re less than $100 and so damn comfy. If you’re in between sizes, I would size down. I’m wearing XS.
