Virtual Girls Night Out - Go Chris Mann!

I got tired of suggesting to my girls that they should do something else besides t.v. watching and computer games.  "Mom", they remind me, "we go outside and play with our friends too!".  Well, not often enough.  So, I headed to Michael's (it's a craft store in our area.  do you have it too?  I love it!) to become inspired.  I picked up some latch hook designs, one cat, one dog and sat with my girls to learn/teach how to make their soon-to-be pillow or wall hanging.  My hope is for a new project a week.  We'll see how this goes.  For now though, let's have a little break and take part in our Virtual Girls Night Out!

*The VGNO is for those who want to party "virtually" with other bloggers. Get on your fuzzy slippers, make yourself a cocktail, and have fun!  Leave a comment to let us know you've stopped by.  Happy VGNO!*

Time For Some Tunes!

As a member of the One2One Network I was introduced to the wonderful voice, and personality, of Chris Mann years ago.  He's very talented (and very funny).  He was prepping his followers to watch The Voice for his audition, so I did, and I cried.  He was fantastic.  He has a beautiful, powerful voice with so much emotion that it carries you away.  So romantic.  Check him out:

Chris Mann "Because We Believe"

I get teary.  Go Chris.  Go Team Xtina!  Hear more from Chris on ChrisMannMusic's Channel (click here).

Time For A Cocktail!

1 - 1 1/2 oz peach schnapps
4 - 6 oz frozen mango mix
1 tbsp grenadine syrup
The mango mix should be blended with crushed ice first then with the schnapps. Pour the schnapps and mango mix into a cocktail glass with the grenadine already placed at the bottom.
Sounds delicious!  Cheers!

Time For The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project!

We're still pluggin' right along with our little "gem".  Most recently it had a visit at Renee's place "Renee's Reviews" in Washington State;

and it should be arriving at Kim's little corner of the blogosphere, "Spice World" in Wesley Chapel, FL any moment now.  To read more about this blog hop/photo project, or to take part, please visit:  The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project.  (Or, click here).  It's fun!!!

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. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

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…
