Virtual GNO - Full Moon Edition

Oh yeah baby! The full moon will be here on Monday. I love it. You never know what kind of craziness will happen. And with next Friday being the 13th I think we're in for quite a week. Hold on to your hats!

This is a Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too :-> ), a social evening without having to get out of our cozy pajamas. We are here to blog-hop and play. The Virtual GNO is a way of meeting up with bloggers you know, and make some new friends as well. So sign Mr. Linky below and join in the fun!

Time For Some Music!

To go along with my give-away this week from "He's Just Not That Into You" here's another great song from the soundtrack.

Tristan Prettyman "Madly"

The movie comes out today. If you see it, let me know what'cha think. I know I'll see it but I'm focusing on seeing all of the Oscar nominated movies first. Guitar Guy and I try to see them all but we usually only make it to two. Life with young kids, right?

And that leads me to...

Time For A Cocktail!

Chocolate Full Moon
2 Shots Tequila
1 Shot De Kuyper Crème De Cacao
1 Shot Cream

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with chocolate shaving if desired.

That will do it for me!!! My sister is allergic to chocolate (can you imagine?!) so if you needed to switch the Creme De Cacao with Amaretto that might be good too!

Time For A Party Game!

*Four places I go over and over:
1. Fred Meyer

    I can't get my sound to work and my live in computer guy is out of town. So I can't listen to your music. And I have a bunch of 8 year olds coming over in a couple hours so I can't drink your chocolate cocktail. I'm a party animal.

  22. Hi Ann
    Where do you get your drink recipes? Choc. full moon sounds yummy.

    I am the goober who talks politics at parties. Did you know you can go to Stimulus Watch and see what kind of dough your city is in line for when the bill passes? Portland is up for $300 million in projects ... kind of makes you wonder what's the point of your local tax money, doesn't it??

    Having fun blog hopping ....:)

  23. I would live on cheesecake if I could!! AND oh how I miss me some wine tasting!!

  24. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had a blast and I cant wait for the next GNO

  25. I'm a little late for the GNO.....but I'm trying the cocktail. Sound delicious.


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