UGH, guys. This morning I ventured out to the dreaded DMV. As far as DMV excursions go, this one was relatively painless. I was the 4th person in line and was there for only about an hour and a half. The pain came with the photo-taking. I mean, WHY is it always so awful? Some things that go through my mind post-drivers-license-photo-taking:
“Why is my face so huge?!”
“Is my right eye always squintier than the other?”
“I need a drink.”
Good thing I made this little number and have the ingredients to whip it up, if need be. It’s a rhubarb-laced version of a mint julep. Which, I have only recently realized, is pretty much a bourbon-sno-cone and pretty much amazing. Click on over to the lovely Fashionable Hostess blog for the details and recipe for this DMW-blues killer, I mean…springtime libation.
This is one beautiful photo! I love the simplicity of it. I hate DMV photos too btw lol!

Oh girl! DMV pics are the worst! No matter what I do, double chin and extreme paleness are all I see in my pics.
Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar
This sounds so good!! I love that you used rhubarb!
One of my eyes is alway squintier than the other too… drives me crazy! On another note, your photos are really lovely. 🙂

I look like a 13 year old child in my driver’s license, so I feel you pain! And wait, how was there an hour and a half wait even though you were the 4th person in line??
Love, love, love the styling of this drink!

Right?? It’s like their cameras make your face widen about five freaking inches!! And nothing about your face that your used to seeing in the mirror stays the same. They’re out to get us. I am all about this drink though. I’m obsessed with rhubarb, but it’s not available yet at our markets. I’ve been growing my own and they are growing like crazy, so I’ll be able to have home grown rhubarb to use to make this soon!

Haha, last time I went, there was 2 full rooms of people waiting, but right after I got my number, the guy called my number! Luck was on my side.. even my picture was acceptable!
But I would still like a drink 🙂
Oh man, I always need a stiff drink post-DMV. These are too pretty for words – I’m obsessed!!
