Sorry to leave you folks hanging. I had a hot date with Satan this morning and had to run 7 miles in 250 degree weather with 1000% humidity.  Now that I’m coming close to rehydration (thank you Sangria and a cup or two of water) and I got a good afternoon nap in (THANK YOU, lovely son of mine, for working with me on that), I’ve come to tell you all about the boxy, personal size goodness that is the wine juice box because, really, I see myself as a messenger of all things good and intoxicating.


Mmmmm… Peeknot GreeGeeOh (just watched Bride Wars, funny, funny)

How perfect were these instead of beers that totally make me all bloaty and burpy when floating down the river? Umh, so perfect. Perfection.  I actually enjoyed a few White Sangria ones, and they stayed nice and cool in my beer koozie. I am so Klassy. I am, I know.  I have a few on standby in the refrigerator, totally taking them to July 4th fireworks.

And, not that I’m a huge wine snob, because really I’m not. I’m a fan of 2 buck (which is really more like 3 buck and some change now) Chuck, and don’t care if bottles have plastic corks or twist off caps, it all does the same job, but I didn’t have big expectations from a wine that comes in a personal size box. It’s GOOD, though!  Maybe not like pour it in a fancy Riedel glass, swirl, sniff, sip, spit, cleanse the pallet good, but it’s totally good enough to drink with some summer BBQ, or just, you know, by itself whenever the mood strikes, like after a long day of nap strikes and meltdowns in Target.

Speaking of Target, my love/hate relationship now sways way more toward love since, you guessed it, that’s where I got these beauties. They come in a four pack and are part of the Wine Cube brand.  To my knowledge, they are only available at Target. I think they are a little less than $8 for 4 little juice boxes.  And, let me just be clear that Target did not send me the wine to review. I sought these out all on my own and am spreading the good word. Not that I wouldn’t be interested in a working relationship where Target sends me free wine to try!  Gah… would that not be the pinnacle of mommy blogging?

  1. Oooh, will totally have to try that next time I float the river. How do you drink it, does it come with a straw?

  2. My friend and I went searching for them yesterday after reading your last post and found them at HEB. Not that you should really be drinking wine on the river, but what took so long for someone to think of this?!?!?!?

  3. Those look awesome!

    I, too, am a fan of formerlytwobuckChuck especially with some pasta for dinner. My husband doesn’t really drink wine and polishing off a bottle by myself is not an option at this point (I’m still nursing twice a day.) Actually, I can’t ever remember polishing off a bottle myself when drinking alone.

    So to have some with dinner, I end up dumping quite a bit, even with a stopper/pumper thing. To have a glass’ worth without wasting a bottle? Priceless.

  4. I am soo loving this but so jealous because here in MD alcohol is only allowed to be sold in liquor stores. I must search to find out where I can get these. Such a fabulous idea!

  5. Ah yes, the winecube! I took it a step further last weekend and purchased the matching neoprene winecube tote at Targ’e too! Added some frozen (mixed smoothie fruit) to the red wine sangria…double yum! Ditto on taking these puppies to the 4th festivities! Maybe I’ll get a wacky light up straw for the sake of fun! LOL

  6. I am so going to Target and buying a 4 pack of these and I want them waiting for me in the fridge when I return home from the hospital.

  7. Thank you for bringing these into my life. 🙂 My husband does not like wine and I can’t finish a bottle on my own. This will be perfect.

  8. there is also another brand that has both 1L boxes and 1/4L personal boxes of both red and white… great for parks that don’t allow glass, plus they are waaay lighter to carry in/out! Target doesn’t sell wine here (stupid blue laws) so come september I’ll be checking again at my local wine shop (boy they must have missed me these last 7 months!)

  • These two are #brothergoals ❤️❤️ Also? @kampgroundsofamerica jumping pillows are Playground #GOALS
  • Oh. Ok, handsome. 😍
  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. 🤗 👋🏻 I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 👶
Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. 👬🤱 The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. 💖
It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞
I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. 😆 ❓
Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
  • "And some people say they can’t go biking because they have too many kids. I guess 4 is the limit...for now! 😀" How awesome is this snapshot from @cabinfeverbus?
  • We are doing some RV improvements and have a giant roll of this reflective stuff laying around. New fav photo back drop 😆 Also,  Lowell is such a big kid these days. 😓 #loloyolo #wallaceaustin
