Virtual GNO - A Little Glee

I'm kinda burned out this week. I think the weather (rainy, windy, grey) plays a part in my weariness. I have so many things that I would like to be doing, but my energy level is way down. And when I go to sleep I just keep thinking about all of the things that I should have done that day, or more things that need to get done and there I am, looking at the numbers on my clock, telling myself that I should be sleeping.

Ugh. I know what I need, a Virtual Girls Night Out.

Time For Some Tunes!

I am just loving Glee. I laugh out loud at every episode, and cry at every episode too. Here's a little bit from this week. (Dang commercial at the beginning!)

Cast of Glee "Somebody To Lean On"

(You might notice Lea Michelle who originated the role of Wendla in Broadway's "Spring Awakening". That show is fantastic!)

Time For A Cocktail!

Chocolate Cocktail
*2 oz vodka
*1 1/2 oz creme de cacao, white
*Hershey Hug or Kiss for garnish
*powdered cocoa for rimming
Pour the ingredients into a shaker with ice cubes. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with cocoa.

Suddenly the dreary grey clouds and rain aren't so troublesome ;->

Time For A Party Game!

"I Will. I Won't. I Wish".
*answer these questions with the first letter of your last name*

~I Will: Have more laughs at myself when getting so stressed out.
~I Won't: Harp on the weather anymore
~I Wish: Human-kind would be just that, more Human and more Kind.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
