Go-Go's "Vacation"

Oh man! I loved The Go-Go's. I wanted to be the drummer (I can't drum, oh well).

Time For A Cocktail!


1 1/2 oz. Light Rum
1/3 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix
Fill with 7-UP
Splash of Rose's Lime Juice
Splash of Cherry Juice
Splash of Pineapple Juice

Pour ingredients into a shaker and pour over ice.

I could go for a couple of those right now! (Yup. I said 'a couple')

Time To Share!

On our vacation at Black Butte Ranch we did some horse back riding...

And we must have S'mores

    Have a great weekend!


  12. What a fun game! I posted my results on my blog. Sounds like you are all vacationed-out. Chase that smore with some wine and you'll find that your family is much more tolerable (just kidding!)

  13. I know the feeling. With the kiddos going to public school this year I've been doing a lot of adjusting and could use a vacation myself!

  14. Happy VGNO! Stop by and say hi!! Hope your weekend is good :)

  15. It is so humid here in NY that the cocktail sounds refreshing to me!

  16. Hanging with the fam & the girls... sounds good.

    Party Game -

    Triple Sec





    Tell me more!

  17. Hey, Ann! I just love the Go-Go's!


  18. I'm here...late as usual! Sounds like Black Butte was fun...love that place! I'm kind of wishing school would start a bit sooner here...we're just hanging out for the rest of the summer. Worked the crop at Whimzee's last night (why I forgot to sign up then...) and went to the BVTN farmer's market today, my neighbor has an awesome crepe booth, Zest Crepes, yummy, had a fondue one! Chat with you soon! :)

  19. Sorry I missed out on all the fun! I'm still hanging on to our vacation. Hubbie took the 2older boys out to a water park today, I stayed home with the youngest and he totally is ready for them to go back to school. :)

  20. I'm a little late for VGNO... but your vacation seems like fun... great song. Brings back lots of memories !

  21. Mmm, those smores look yummy and I bet you had fun horseback riding! Always wanted to learn that!! :)


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