About Me

Greetings, friends! I hate rambling on about myself, but since this is the About Me page, I probably have a duty to do so.

I’ll put it off a bit and start with the most common question I get about the blog.

“What’s with the weird blog name? You are neither a pony nor a martini.”

One night, I was on a date with my husband and instead of fully relishing the moment with him, I was distracted by a toy store. 

In the window was a display of My Little Pony plush toys. My daughter LOVES the ponies, and I knew I had to get one for her. 

After selecting Rarity, the posh pony, my husband and I decided to get a few drinks at a bar. My beverage of choice was a martini. After a couple, I thought it would be hilarious if Rarity enjoyed one too. 

When I started blogging a few months later, I came across a photo I snapped of Rarity and her martini. It summed up my life perfectly; playing with the ponies by day and pretending to be a responsible adult by night.

“Now that we have that pony nonsense cleared up, who are you really?”

I am just a girl, barreling through life while trying to make sense of being a wife and mother, with a smudge of humor sprinkled on top.

Oh, and I am the caretaker for three dogs, one cat and a hamster. To say things are chaotic, is an understatement.
Welcome to the wild pony ride. Enjoy!

  1. I wish you hadn’t found me. I wish you hadn’t followed me. Because now I read your blog and I love it. I want to have play dates with you even though you’re about seven states away. And now I’m going to follow you back. Because I have time to read more blogs. (I don’t. I don’t have time to read my blog let alone your blog…)
    You had me at PonyMartini. You might as well be called StrawberryShortcakeMargarita…
    Be warned. I comment. A. Lot.
    Pleased to meet you. 😉


  2. Hey! Not sure if you participate in these things or not, but I nominated you for a One Lovely Blog Award. I don’t normally do these things, but I thought this is a great way to give a shout out to some of my favourite blogs. You can see my post on mine! It’s not a push for you to participate – do or don’t! 🙂 Happy Friday!


  3. I am so glad I stumbled upon this blog. We are living in parallel universes, right down to the alcohol therapy, which I refer to as Mommy’s Little Helper.


  4. Hi from New Zealand! This is a little ‘out of the blue’ but I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award – I think you’ve been nominated before but I wanted to share the love as I think your blog is fabulous.
    Hope you have a great weekend! Kerry 🙂
