Virtual Girls Night Out & UBP '10 Blow Out!

I woke to the BIGGEST black spider hanging out on the wall of my living room. It was HUGE I tell ya'! And you know what? I took care of it. No screaming, no waving of arms, no telling my husband 'Eek! You take care of it!' It was just me, my trusty Dyson and the leggy nemesis. (It was so flippin' huge I didn't have a jar big enough to fit over it! Good Lord.) But it's gone now to that big-spider Heaven, where ever that is. So you know what I'm in the mood for? A Virtual Girls Night Out and some ultimate partying with 5 Minutes For Mom!

* 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 has been hopping since 2008! Amazing! Check out this post, then add your blog name & link to Simply Linked below. Click on blog links that have joined our party. Visit 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!

"Sexy Woman"
1/2 passion fruit juice
1/4 cup Absolut peppar vodka

Mix the 1st 3 inredients in a cocktail shaker. Pour into martini glass & garnish with 1 cilantro leaf.

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

The Virtual GNO has been blog-hopping every Friday night since 2008 (That even surprises me!) It's always fun to find as many blog pals as possible and create new friendships. That is why, once again, after you've added your link to our weekly Virtual GNO blog-hopping party, why don't you go to 5 Minutes for Mom and join in the annual "Ultimate Blog Party 2010". It's HUGE and they have amazing prizes. I will gladly accept the Goodie Basket For Mom. Or any of the gift cards. Heck! The prizes are great. Winning any of them would be a treat! Go check it out.

OK, my dear blog pals. I hope you don't run into big, hairy spiders today and that you meet a lot of great bloggers at our Virtual Girls Night Out and at 5 Minutes for Moms Ultimate Blog Party '10. Have fun!!!

  1. Happy VGNO and Happy Friday Ann! Oh I do admire you - I do not like spiders. When I was younger I was absolutely terrified of even the smallest spider whereas now I can deal with the little ones but BIG spiders definitely not. I hate the way they can just jump across the room so you never know where they might land!!! Ugghhhh!!

    Have a wonderful spider free weekend!

  2. I used to be very afraid of spiders myself. I always said, "You just can't trust something with that many legs. Lord knows which way it's gonna go!" But, now they don't bother me so much. We do have a ton of black widows here and they are as I'm sure you know, really poisonous. I've had way too many close encounters with them to count. Happy VGNO--thanks once again for hosting!

  3. Happy VGNO. Oh Ann I'm so thankful it's Friday again although, until I get this damn house staged...it really doesn't matter what day it is.
