Virtual Girls Night Out - Spring! & A Giveaway


It's almost here... officially.


The first day of Spring officially begins on March 20th. I can't wait to break out of this winter funk. It hit me hard this year. Let's spread the joy and get going with our Virtual Girls Night Out!

*The VGNO is for those of us who couldn't get a baby-sitter but still need to break away from the cries and demands of our family, if only for a little bit. This is a blog-hopping party that's been happening since 2008. So check out this post, add your blog title and link to Simply Linked below and visit those that have done the same. Go blog-hopping! Happy VGNO! *

Time For A Cocktail!

Cilantro Martini
~Heaping handful fresh cilantro
~1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
~Juice from 1 lime
~1/2 oz simple syrup
~2 oz citrus vodka
~1/2 oz gin
Fill shaker with crushed ice, cilantro, lime juice, and simple syrup, and muddle well. Add vodka and gin. Shake well, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Whaddya' think? Sound 'Springy'? :->

Time For Some Tunes!

Oh man, I've been a fan since "White Ladder". So good.

Time For A Party Game!

With Spring approaching let's play "Feeling of Spring In One Word"

If your first name begins with the letter A - E describe Spring in one word beginning with the letter S. Since I'm Ann I will say "Sunny". (Please, oh please let it be sunny). Follow the chart to see which letter you will use.

A - D = S
E - H = P
I - L = R
M - P = I
Q - T = N
U - Z = G

Get out your Thesauruses! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

  1. OK...after much searching, I'm going to say "reinvigorate"! Funny that I got R, Delaney had R for a class project and had to write a whole page of R alliterations...believe me, it's very interesting! I love Spring and I love that we've got sun right now, Delaney's birthday is Sunday and our weather is always a toss up this time of year! Have a wonderful weekend/Spring Break.

    Check out my announcement and see what you think about the page, I was wondering if it would be something you might be interested in too.

  2. OK...I'm not stalking you! I was just checking back to see who I could leave comments for instead of cleaning my bathroom. And I didn't see my link so I put it in again...hope it works OK this time! :)

  3. Thanks Ann - I am going to sign up and look forward to meeting other bloggers. A great idea to have a virtual MNO! By the way I too love David Gray and have been a fan since White Ladders too - although these days I listen mostly to the Wiggles........sad but true.

    My word for spring would have to be ravishing. Spring has finally arrived here, with some warm sunny weather and it is so nice to be able to get outside again and enjoy it.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Following you from FF,

  5. Hi Ann.
    Stopping by to see if you are still doing the VGNO.
    Looks like you are still having fun :)

  6. Hi Ann and all the rest of you lovely ladies enjoying the VGNO. My word for spring would be...hmmm...can't think of any. We do live in the southern hemisphere, so fall is starting on Sunday. My word for fall is: sweaters. Can't wait to start wearing sweaters again, 40 C almost every day since November. Hugs, from the Chacogirl!

  7. I'll be posting a new entry in my blog in a few minutes, then I'll link up to you.:)

  8. Hey! Happy friday!
    So my letter is "N".... I guess it would be horribly boring to go with the word "nice"? But I am sleep deprived and can't come up with better! :(
    Happy GNO!

  9. Mr. Linky doesn't like me today. I can't link to you:(
