Virtual GNO - I'm Sassy Sue!



It's here. It's really here. Summer vacation. The last day of school was Wednesday and my girls are already bored. GEEZ! I've compiled a list of things to do. I've bought snacks and offered to put up a tent in the backyard, just something out of the ordinary to get the summer fun going. But what do I hear? "I'm bored". Ugh. Transitions aren't easy. I think I'll runaway to the tent!
You know what I need? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

New to the party? Welcome! The original Virtual GNO is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008 when I couldn't get a sitter and was in desperate need for time away from my children and some adult conversation. I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. At least I can "get out" in my imagination.

To join the blog-hopping fun, check out my VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guest book with your name and blog link. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed in. It's a party so at a party you mingle, right? Go blog-hopping! I want everyone to connect. That's what it's all about.

Time To Sing!

Oh man, this movie came out in 1978. All summer long I begged my mom to take me to this movie again and again and again. I had the soundtrack and acted out the parts. I was obsessed. (And my mom was concerned. Think about it. A sweet girl changes her ways to become a bad girl to attract the guy. NOT GOOD! But I didn't care about that stuff. I just loved the music. Ah youth.)

Grease - "We Go Together"



No matter what, if this movie comes on, I'll watch it. Love it!

Time For A Cocktail

Pink Lady (Are you surprised? Nope ;-> )
Ingredients:
1/2 Shot White Rum
1 Shot De Kuyper Crème De Cassis
Top up Orange Juice
1/2 Shot Lemon Juice
Directions:Shake ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a highball glass half filled with cubed ice. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

Ooooohhh I can't remember what Cassis tastes like but I can't wait to find out :-> This sounds like something yummy to sip while I'm hiding in the backyard tent singing to the Grease soundtrack. I'm sure my neighbors won't mind ;->

And The Winner Is...

We had such a great giveaway last week. Erin from Giant Fortune Cookies & Fancy Fortune Cookies wanted to share a $50 gift certificate with one lucky VGNO guest and that guest is...

Kristen from All In A Mom's Life! Congratulations and Enjoy!

There will be another wonderful giveaway at next weeks VGNO. Yeah!!!

  8. I'm Smokin' Molly...still can't believe our moms let us watch this movie, bad boys, smoking, drinking & teen pregnancy. I guess in 3rd grade, I just loved the song & dance numbers! Still debating showing it to my 8 yr old, maybe with the miracle of DVD I can jump to the fun parts & skip the ackward discussions!

    check me out on Twitter too: JulieChats

  10. Ann!!! Grease is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite movies EVER! Any time it comes on, no matter how much I've missed, I'll drop everything to watch it to the end. (Can you believe it's freaking 31 years old already! SIGH!!)
    Loving my pink lady name: Hot Rod Helen. AKA "the best dancer from St. Bernadette's... with the worst reputation!" ;)
    (Um, not really, but that always sounded so cool!)
    Happy Friday! Happy GNO!

  18. Summer lovin', had me a blast.... summer lovin' happened so faaaaast...

    Oops, sorry, was steeped in memories for a moment there!

    When you think about the message that movie sent it's horrifying, isn't it? Good girl turns bad, Rizzo thinks she's knocked up, Frenchie can't even pass beauty school. Ah, those were the days.

    I love the Grease Theme. I didn't get ot see it until Summer of 1983 I think, I was in Girl Guides. It might have been later then that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm Hot Rod Helen! This is completely appropriate since I had a minor little accident about 30 minutes ago. I wrote a post about it--at least something good came of it! Gotta love that "glass half full" mentality!

    Ann--is there room in that tent for one more? I'll bring the alcohol--Pink Ladies need to stick together.

  29. Bored already? Dear oh dear. They could always pop downunder and be reminded of winter?

    ReplyDelete
