Last Call! - GNO - Back to School Edition

Sunday night. A school night. I need to get up early tomorrow.  I still remember the feeling I would get when "The Wonderful World of Disney" would come on. 'Yay!', then 'Ugh'. 'It must be Sunday night'.
(I'm dating myself with that one, right?!!)

Here's a tune that you should know pretty well. It's an excellent cover.

Mandy Moore "Umbrella"

I absolutely LOVE Mandy Moore's last album "Wild Hope". Give it a try.

I believe it's time for some of that left over Jewel Punch ... that's sounds good right now.

Party Favor!
It's time to Face Your Manga. Caroline at The Zen In You wanted to know what I looked like 'cyberfied'. Well, as soon as my Avatar is ready I will post it here.

Let's see what you look like in a virtual world. Go try it!

Time for a lovely tune.
I've been trying to find a good video of this song. It's difficult because it's very, very independent. Which is surprising because the singer was in an incredibly popular band in the 80's. (Guess which one. It shouldn't be too hard!) This song is not at all like the bands sound though! Please listen...

"Waiting For My Real Life To Begin"  Colin Hay, from Men At Work.

(*Video no longer available*)

This song, oh, this song. The words can just make you cry. (But don't cry! It's a party!)

Remember now, don't be afraid to mingle. When someone leaves a comment go visit their blog. And when your blog is visited, go visit your guests blog. Keep the momentum going. Come back though!

I hope this Virtual GNO has helped facing Monday morning a little easier.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
