Virtual Girls Night Out - Ultimate Partying with 5 Minutes For Mom

The girls have ANOTHER day off of school so our household is full of kids. (I'm happy that they want to play here, and yet I wish someone else's home could be "The" place sometimes. I do feel lucky though :-> ) I need some adult conversation! Time 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!

Spring Cocktail
2 oz Dry Gin
1 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Fresh Lemon juice
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker / stirrer and pour into an unusually shaped glass. Add Crushed Ice. Cheers!

Did you know that Chartreuse is made with 130 herbal extracts? Sounds fantastic!

Time For Some Tunes!

One eskimO "Kandi"

I'm hooked! This video is part of a series and I've messed you up with the order of the story. It's just that I'm really into this song right now ;-> (I'll probably show the other video next week.)

Time To Meet More Great Bloggers!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

The Virtual Girls Night Out has been blog-hopping every Friday night since 2008 (I can't believe it. Can you?) It's always fun to find as many blog pals as possible and create new friendships. That is why, after you've added your link to our weekly Virtual Girls Night Out blog-hopping party, why don't you go to 5 Minutes for Mom and join in the annual "Ultimate Blog Party 2010". It's just massive 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.

Busy, busy, busy. 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! It's all about support. Have fun!

  18. So happy you're at UBP and cool that you combined it with your VGNO too!!!

  19. Samson is actually a boykin spaniel. He is the most loyal, energetic, loving, caring, gentle, cutest dog I have ever had (and I grew up with tons of dogs). They are duck hunting dogs and a mixture of water spaniel, cocker spaniel, and chespeake bay retrievers. Because hes never actually been duck hunting, he collects balls. Its funny because I have never once bought him a tennis ball, yet he has 10+. He likes to drop them into the bed with my husband and I while we are sleeping. I just recently started a "no balls in the house" rule, but I am still finding them and tossing them onto the back porch. He has been so great with Hawke. With him being just 2 months and 3 weeks old, I keep telling them both that they will be best friends as soon as Hawke figures out how to sit up.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! Its nice to finally know people are reading it!
