Virtual Girls Night Out - Hopping

Waking up to pouring rain shouldn't be unusual to me, I do live in the Pacific Northwest after all. It's just that yesterday was sunny, and the sun felt so good and so hopeful and this rain... this rain that seems to be pelting so-o-o-o many in the United States (my heart goes out to you East Coasters) is a big flippin' drag!!! Enough already!!!

Whew...

OK. I am in need of an intense, completely absorbing (see the bottom of this post and you'll see why) blog-hopping good ol' Virtual Girls Night Out! Let's get going.

* The VGNO is for those 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. The VGNO blog-hopping party began in 2008! Check out this post, then add your blog name & link to Simply Linked below. Click on blog links that have joined our party. Visit new friends & go blog-hopping! And... if you don't have time to blog-hop tonight, that's cool. Add your link any way & I bet you'll be able to visit friends tomorrow... or the next day... or the next day. Happy VGNO! *

Time For A Cocktail!

Easter Bunny
Ingredients:
1 1/2 oz dark crème de cacao
1/2 oz vodka
1 tsp chocolate syrup
1 tsp cherry brandy
Preparation:
Pour the crème de cacao and vodka into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well.
Strain into an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes. Float chocolate syrup and cherry brandy on top.

I'm ready to fill my basket with some of these!!! (Nap time wouldn't be far away)


Time For Some Tunes!

I've played this at the VGNO before. But it's so worth showing/hearing again.


Time For A Freebie!

The rain will stop eventually... right? When it does, how about planting a garden that will attract some beautiful butterflies. You can receive free butterfly garden seeds from Live Monarch Seeds. All you need to do is send a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

Live Monarch Seeds
3003-C8 Yamato Road, #1015
Boca Raton, Florida 33434



OK. My 11 yr. old niece is staying with us for a few days for her Spring Break. (My daughters had theirs 2 weeks ago.) This is all just kinda crazy, um... that's all I'm going to say - for now. E-mail me for more details! ;-> I will be distracting myself with happiness by blog-hopping like a good little blogging friend should!

*Now add your blog link to Simply Linked below and join the Virtual Girls Night Out! Visit those that have signed in. The list will grow through out the weekend so come back and see who has joined our party. I hope you meet some wonderful bloggers! Have fun!

  3. I love that video--have seen it several times and I never get tired of it! It's been nice here in L.A., but we are supposed to be getting some rain I think Sunday night. Hope the Easter Bunny has an umbrella. :) Happy VGNO!!!
