Virtual GNO - Back To School Edition

Well here we are. Another school year is under way and I'm ready to celebrate a Friday night! (We don't have to wake-up early tomorrow, yeah!!!!) So go grab a drink and let's go!!!

First, I must share a song that has been driving me CRAZY! (I thought it was only fair to share.) My girls and I LOVE, absolutely LOVE this song! And we've come up with our own words for the chorus. (Those are the best sometimes, right?)

Adele - Chasing Pavements

(*Video no longer available)

Guess how old this girl is? I'll tell ya' in a bit.
Now, it took me 4 listens to understand what she was saying. I couldn't figure out WHAT she was singing in the chorus. 'Payments?', 'Rain men?' My 7 year old came up with the best "Or should I just keep chasing "Cavemen". Love it.
Adele was 19 when she recorded this song. Amazing voice, right?

Time for a party game. "The Mighty Four"

Four places I go over and over:
1. Fred Meyer
2. Target
3. Trader Joe's
4. (My van)

Four places I would rather be:
1. Calistoga, CA
2. Calistoga, CA
3. Calistoga, CA
4. Calistoga, CA (Oh... the wine tasting... the gorgeous hills... the wine tasting)

Four things I have for breakfast:
1. Coffee (What's in the coffee Ann? Hmmmm?)
2. Cereal
3. Yogurt
4. Scrambled Eggs

Your turn! I TAG YOU ALL!
