Virtual Girls Night Out - Summer Time!

Ann Again... and again

 The summer is in full swing here and I'm doing my best to step away from my natural tendency to act as Julie Your Cruise Director and let my girls come up with their own ideas of how they would like to fill their days.  Yes, some days I do have certain things planned, but I'm easing up on the reins and letting them have "time".  (We're only a week and a half in to this plan, so we'll see how long this lasts ;->).  So let's have a good ol' time at this weeks Virtual Girls Night Out and see what happens!

*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, along with your blog link, to let us know you've stopped by and visit the blogs of those that have visited as well.  Happy VGNO!*

Time For Some Tunes!

 The Lumineers "Ho Hey"

This so is just so sweet.  Nice and light, perfect for a summer day, frolicking in a flower filled meadow.  I'm not the only one that does that, am I?

Time For A Cocktail!

Basil Blossom
4 Fresh Basil Blossoms
1 ½ oz Vodka
½ oz Chambord or other berry flavored Liqueur
½ oz Peach Schnapps
½ Peach
½ Lemon
1 ½ oz Orange Juice
Cut peach into small pieces and add to a shaker. Take two Fresh Origins Basil Blossom, torn into pieces and squeezed lemon, and add to shaker and muddle. Add Vodka, Chambord, Peach Schnapps, and Orange Juice. Shake vigorously, pour into ice filled Collins glass. Garnish with 2 Fresh Origins Basil Blossom, and peach slice.

After a couple of these you just might see me frolicking in a field near you!

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.

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…
