VGNO-Post Migraine Party

*Day 2 of Virtual GNO. Here's how a Virtual GNO is done; when someone leaves a comment go visit their blog and leave a comment. When your blog is visited go introduce yourself to your guest. But come back! It's a party! Invite your friends.*

Alright now! What a difference a good night's sleep can make. And Jay at Half Time Lessons I totally appreciate your male "fixer" information. We all need to try and look out for one another, don't we? ;->
(Although Blarney's suggestion of Sangria or Merlot sounds so much more fun!)

This is how I feel today!

will.i.am "It's A New Day"

What do you think of that, Huh?!? It just sticks in my head, in a good way! :->

Well, I felt so much better I even made French Toast for my girls this morning. Hey, do you put anything fun, or different, in your French Toast? I know some who add oatmeal, or instead of milk they use orange juice. Do you do anything creative like that? Or are you tried and true 'If it ain't broke don't fix it'?

Well, Veteran's Day (a.k.a. "Armistice Day") will be here on Tuesday. I was looking for a tradional drink for this holiday and I came up with a Champagne Cocktail.
Sounds good! Let's make one!

Champagne Cocktail:
6oz Champagne
1 sugar cube
dash bitters
*Soak the sugar cube in the bitters for a few seconds. Put the cube into the bottom of a flute glass, then pour the Champagne over it. Usually garnished with a lemon twist.

Yum!

My husband, "Guitar Guy", sent me this fantastic slideshow. (It needs music though. What song would go well with this?)



Now go mingle at our Girls Night Out. When someone leaves a comment go visit their blog and leave a comment. And when your blog is visited, go visit your guests blog. Keep the momentum going. And invite some of your blog pals!
Come back though! It's a party!

  1. That slide show was amazing, wasn't it?

    Glad you are feeling better, and sorry I didn't make it last night- I've been making an effort to tear myself away from the computer at night to spend time with my husband. No fun. ;)

  2. Hey! Sorry I missed last night's GNO...
    LOVE this slideshow. Would Queens's "We are the Champions" be too in-yo-face-suckas?

  8. Just to stay on the Will I Am theme, I think the rendition of President Obama's (I just love typing that!) DNC speech ~ I think that's the speech ~ would go great. The video shows all kinds of 'stars' and singers saying/singing bits & pieces of his speech. Now that's a video that get's to me ... right to the heart I tell you. I have to be honest ~ that speech was awesome!
    Gotta run ~ my wood floors are calling me. Stop by next week, I got a Blarney Home mini-series going on. Been working hard!

  9. I like the virtual GNO idea! And that's so funny your husband also just read Devil in the White City.

    I think if I had been told it was about the World Fair, with a part of the book about a serial killer, I would have been more interested, but when I was told it was a book about a serial killer, not so much.

    I'm adding you to my Reader! I'll be back!

  15. I don't have an addition for french toast per se, but have an excellent recipe for a blueberry compote that is super yummy and you make it with a bag of frozen blueberries, so it is pretty easy. In fact you could make it in about the time it would take to soak your bread. The recipe is here: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Buttermilk-Pancakes-with-Blueberry-Compote-101037 Also: that recipe for pancakes is not as good as the Joy of Cooking's recipe. Enjoy!

  19. Oh no! I'm a VNO drop out!! Sorry to miss out on the fun - I swear, as soon as we started emailing about it the other night, my 4-year old came down and asked me to tuck him in bed! (sad, isn't it? I guess Daddy fell asleep on the couch and the poor little guy had to hunt down a parent to put him to bed! Mother of the Year? Not me.)
