Virtual Girls Night Out - "I Did The Macarena..." Edition

So I get the mail from my outside mail bin. I bring in a bunch of advertisements and nonsense. As I'm rifling through the pile of papers a yellow jacket smiles back at me from the Pizza Hut ad. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! I throw the paper out the door and my dog goes chasing after it. I go after him so he doesn't get a stinger in his mouth, again, and, well, I believe I need a little Virtual Girls Night Out!!!

This is our Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too). Our social evening without having to get out of our footie p.j.'s. We're here to blog-hop and play. The Virtual GNO is your chance to hang out with your blog friends and hopefully make some new friends as well! So sign Mr. Linky below and join in the fun!

Let's Dance!

U2 - Get On Your Boots

(Video no longer available)

I'm going to be heading to Seattle with the family soon. It's just a 3 hour drive so that car ride shouldn't be too bad. (Ear plugs Ann... don't forget to pack the ear plugs) I haven't been in years. I'm excited!

Time For A Cocktail!

Seattle Manhattan
For today's recipe, here's what you'll need - check it out:
2-3 ounces of top shelf whisky or bourbon
1-2 ounces of coffee liqueur
1/2 ounce to an ounce of Kahlua
1/2 ounce to an ounce of sweet Vermouth
Fill your shaker nearly to the top with ice, and add in your liquor - two or three parts whiskey to about one part each of coffee-flavored liqueur, Kahlua, and sweet Vermouth.

Yowzaa!!! I don't think I'll even remember my trip to Seattle if a have a couple of those! I guess we'll just have to see ;->

Time For A Party Game!

4 ----------- Under your bed
5 ----------- Riding a Motorcycle
6 --------- sliding down a hill
7 --------- in an elevator
8---------- at the dinner table
9 -------- In line at the bank
0 -------- in your bathroom

Pick the color of shirt you are wearing:
White---------because I'm cool like that
Black---------because that's how I roll.
Pink-----------because I'm NOT crazy.
Red-----------because the voices told me to.
Blue-----------because I'm sexy and I do what I want
Green---------because I think I need some serious help.

  1. I'll post this a little later but I'll see you there tonight.

  2. Hi Ann--I'm getting my youngest daughter ready for the Cinderella Ball (w Grandpa!) tonight but I'll stop by later for a cocktail and to check out some new blogs!

    I've entered my daughter, Ashley, into a contest that expires tonight put on by CVS. The more comments I get on my post http://dailyblonde.blogspot.com/2009/01/tuesdays-tribute-more-than-woman.html the more of a chance she has to win. This would come in so handy since her apartment was robbed last week. I'd appreciate it if anyone could stop by and leave a comment...I'll make a fresh pitcher of sangria for my visitors!

  3. I karate chopped a football player under my bed, because I'm cool like that! He he. Very cute game. Happy Friday, ladies!

  20. OH CRAP!!!!
    I left my dirty comment on your LOVELY photo post! Damn! I am sorry!!!! Pls delete if you'd like.
    ANYWAY! It was supposed to say, mine was: I licked my dog in your bathroom because that's how I roll.
    Gosh, not too embarrassing! (I am batting 1000% lately, aren't I?)

  21. Sorry I'm late. I now know why Green is my favorite color.

    I need serious help!!!!

  22. man i just noticed that my link probably depressed everyone. I forgot to change it from another Mr. Linky earlier this week.

  23. there, I changed it. I hope.

  24. this is too fun! your cocktail sounds yummy :O) Happy VGNO Ann!!!!

  25. I'm so excited for VGNO!!

    BTW Ann you have the same b-day as my hub!!

  26. If only I knew how to use Mr. Linky.
    This is the correct post to link to.

    I licked a noodle in line at the bank because I need serious help.

  27. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  28. I kicked a ninja riding a motorcycle because the voices told me to!

    how fun! what a neat idea!

    it's my first VGNO.

  29. I've crashed the VNO or whatever you're calling it! Just added my name to the linky. Did a super quick post with my cute sentence!

    Justine :o )

  30. Did you know I jumped on a surfer on your car because I am awesome? Yeah, that's me!

  31. Maybe you need to post the "rules" for GNO. It seems some feel copy and pasting and trying to take the idea as their own is how we play. Last I checked that is now how we "GIRLS" roll. - Just saying. It is rude to offend the hostest with the mostest.

    mwah!! I puffy heart you more!!

  32. Oh Ann...I hate that I missed this VGNO! Sounds like it was loads of fun. Looking forward to the next outing! Have a good rest of the weekend! Cheers, Kimberly

  33. I had lunch with a fireman under your bed, because that's how I roll!

  34. I jumped on my science teacher at the dinner table because that's how I roll.

    Very cute! Thank you for sharing.

  35. I licked a stuffed animal in your bathroom because Im sexy and I do what I want (????!!!)

    What are the numbers trying to tell me!!!



Thanks for taking the time to comment! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
