Virtual GNO - And A Giveaway!

So much is on my mind. The nightmarish bully situation in Florida. The decision weather or not to have my girls vaccinated for H1N1. And that crazy, and highly suspicious, balloon ride. (I really don't want to go on about it but that Dad? He's kinda nuts. And this family has been on Wife Swap not just once, but twice? I actually saw one of those episodes - I'm embarrassed to say - and I couldn't believe what a jerk he was. Now, well, this whole thing is just odd. Click here to see Joel McHale's take on him.)

Onward! Let's get our minds off of disturbing things and relax at a Virtual Girls Night Out. New here? This is what you do: Check out my main VGNO post then sign the MckLinky guest book below with your name/blog link. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed the MckLinky VGNO. Go blog-hopping!

Time For Some Music!

I have a giveaway going over at Ann Again... and again Reviews for the latest release from Joshua Bell. His style of music doesn't generate a lot of videos however, I just love this tune. Check it out!

Joshua Bell & Chris Botti "I Loves You Porgy"

This cd is so-o-o-o good. I absolutely love it!

Time For A Cocktail!

Gushy Violin
2 oz. Brandy
1 oz. Vanilla Cream
2 oz. Milk
5 tsp extract Mint
Mix together and serve chilled.

Hmmm... Vanilla Cream? How decadent. Yum :->

  1. Not sure how much I'll party tonight...I have strep throat. :(

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I need to send you my address so I can get the rock too. We could actually meet up somewhere if you wanted to.

  3. Yaya, strep throat is NOT allowed. :-<

    Feel better soon.

  4. No rock yet!Still waiting...

    Have a Happy VGNO!

  5. helloooo and happy VGNO. Gotta love "The Soup" - and a little something boozy that tastes like desert is the ultimate treat!

  6. I'm partying and watching the Phillies... right now BEATING the LA Dodgers, sipping on my Spiced Apple Wine. We're having "party" food for dinner, deep dish pizza casserole. I am up for some blog hopping tonight for the first time in a few weeks!

    Balloon boys dad - Nuts? Ya think?

  7. Yeah, Kahuna called it the minute he saw balloon boy's dad. He said "It's a publicity stunt". It might be an expensive one.


  8. Hi Ann!
    It's so cold here that it feels like December ;(

    Happy VGNO!

  9. Hi Ann! Hope you were enjoying the nice weather here today! The pouring rain should start anytime. Poor Yaya! Maybe we should break out our masks in her honor... :) Oh, that's for swine flu not strep, nobody cares if we get strep!

  10. That drink sounds awesome.

    Enjoying a cold Friday night by the fireplace...it would be perfect.

  11. Gushy Violin, lol!

    Happy VGNO, Ann! It's nice to be inside out of the freezing temps!

  12. Happy VGNO! Too much random weirdness going on out there in the world.

  13. Oooh. That drink sounds YUMMY? When can I have alcohol again? ;)
    Happy Friday! Happy GNO!

  14. Thankfully I did not really hear about that whole balloon thing. From what I know now I think I really lucked out. Too much of a coincidence that the family was on "Wife Swap" twice...I think this has a lot to do with someone wanting to stretch out his 15 minutes...

    Happy VGNO! I don't know how much hopping I'll get in because my middle son is sick with the flu. My daughter is just getting over it, and now kid #2 has it. I've got one eye on kid #3...it's probably just a matter of time, but cross your fingers for me. It'd be great if at least one kid didn't get this.

    I just posted about finding time for oneself, taking care of oneself, pretty funny considering my caretaking duties go up with the temperatures around here. YIKES!

  15. That balloon dad is insane...and I totally think he planned that!

    My first time to VGNO....I'm going to go hop around!

    Happy weekend!

  16. I am still here Ann! Busy, but here!

    Happy VGNO weekend!

  20. We didn't have H1N1 Vaxes here (still don't yet) and my daughter had it last week but it was mild but I think we caught it early! Hope you have a blessed week! Sounds like a yummy cocktail.
