Virtual GNO - Sweet!

Is it really Friday? The week actually went quickly for me. I almost missed an important appointment yesterday because I've been a day off this week. Maybe due to the fact that I was a bit fixated on my 11 yr. old's Sex Ed. class that began this week. We're growing up in this house!!! Know what I need? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

New to the party? Welcome! The original Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too) is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008. I couldn't get a sitter and I was in desperate need for time away from my children. So, I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. This is how we do it. Check out my VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guestbook below. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed in as well. Go blog-hopping!

So about that very important appointment I almost missed yesterday... it was time to color those grey roots!

What the heck happened to my eyebrow?! Where'd the rest of it go???

I am so bad about doing things for myself that it took the hairstylists wife to call me and tell me the day I was getting my hair done. She even called the night before to make sure I wouldn't forget! Now that's service (and it helps that she is a fellow mom who has the same trait).

Let's Get This Hair On The Dance Floor!

Anjulie "Boom"

You might not be able to get that little "Boom - Sha - Laka" out of your head today. Sorry about that. 'Boom - Sha - Laka' Oops! There I go!

Time For A Cocktail!

Since I covered the grey I thought a little Grey Goose vodka was in order. And a bit of chocolate doesn't hurt either!

Chocolate Candy
1 oz Godiva® chocolate liqueur
1 oz vanilla schnapps
1 oz creme de cacao
1 oz Grey Goose® vodka
1 splash half-and-half

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Stir, pour into a chilled cocktail glass, and serve.

And speaking of chocolate have you signed up to receive your free chocolate from the Mars Company yet? No? Go to this link for your chance at the Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act. https://secure.realchocolate.com/

Last weeks VGNO had a fantastic giveaway sponsored by the hilarious company Knock Knock. Our party's lucky winner is....

Susan from "Stay At Home Mom"! Congratulations Susan! I hope you enjoy your Happy Mom Bundle.

Time For A Party Game!

  27. I have 3 inch roots that need "tending" to! yikes! Happy VGNO from Savory Chunk!

  28. i just stopped by to tell you how adorable you look and so young, too! :)

  29. I missed participating in VGNO last night, but I was just too tired! Too tired to go to sleep, but too tired to be even the least bit imaginitive or creative.

    I'm Precious Chunk (what?) If I use my maiden name - I'd be Precious Honey, I like that better!!!

    Your hair looks great. I just realized in the rear view mirror, with the sun shining on the top of my head through the open sunroof of our new ride that the roots are showing AGAIN!

  30. Ooh girl, your hair looks fab, and geez, you look younger in that pic than even your profile pic! That's not fair!
    Yep, the eyebrow needs a wee bit of a touch-up. Some gently smudged and blended pencil will fix that right up! You're beautiful!

    Justine :o )

  31. Beautiful photo, Ann! Sorry I missed GNO, but I was here in spirit! Loooong night with t-ball pics, and a crying baby. Mmmm going to try that drink. Sounds yummy...liquor & chocolate? Does it get better? Lol!

  32. Hey, looks like you got it cut too. Very nice! Great picture BTW.
