Virtual GNO - The Man Behind The Garden


Things are still floating around in the Harrison household without any certain direction so this Virtual GNO is following in the same vein.  Susan, of "Secrets of a Suburban Soccer Mom", I totally owe you that interview/VGNO Spotlight that I told you was yours today.  I apologize for not getting it together.  But it will happen.  VGNO Friends!  Please go visit her site and see her interview with Teri Hatcher!  And then see her cookin' with Bobby Flay!  Great fun.

*Just what is a Virtual Girls Night Out? VGNO is a way to visit blogs & hang with blog pals on Friday nights without the cost of hiring a babysitter. It's a Blog-Hop.  Everyone's doing them now and we've been hopping since 2008! Touch base with those you know, or meet someone new and begin a beautiful blog friendship - all in the comfort of your fuzzy bunny slippers. It's a blog-hopping Virtual Girls Night Out!*   AND... This party will be moving to Saturday's. 

Time For Some Tunes!

Sara Bareilles "King of Anything"

Great video.   I want to be in that garden at the end.  Speaking of gardens... some asked about the watering system from yesterday's "Little Garden Vlog" post.  Check it out.

Rob's watering system...

If only we could make a living from creating gardens and bragging about them  sharing our enjoyment  ;->

Time For A Cocktail!

Lavender Lemonade
1 oz LOFT Lavender Cello
1 oz vodka
4 oz lemonade
Lemon wheel for garnish
Blend and enjoy!

I've got the lavender.  I better walk to the store before the heat wave hits. 

OK friends, off we go to show our support and blog-hop.  Thank you for your incredibly kind words, I can feel the love... really.

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.

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…
