It's Virtual Girls Night Out! Have You Heard The One About Bill Clinton and Blurred Lines?

Ann Again and again Virtual Girls Night Out  Est. 2008

We have one week of Summertime left until our girls return to school.  I don't know where the Summer went.  I really don't.  Last year I was so good about planning our activities and, I think, we had a great "Stay-cation" in our corner of the world - Portland, OR.  The beautiful Pacific Northwest.  But this Summer, although we've been able to go places and see things, it just feels different.  I feel different.  I'm tired, I'm not focused.  I'm stressed about my girls media time and berate myself every time I see a blog post or Pinterest tip on "Great Kids Activities".

My girls are 15 and 12.  For the years that I have spent being Julie The Cruise Director ("Love Boat" reference for all you young-in's out there.  Google it.) I should be able to relax a bit and enjoy the fact that my craft box is filled with instruments made of paper plates and toilet paper rolls, nature journals, recipes to make home-made ice cream and your own sidewalk chalk and photos to prove we actually made all these things.  But no.  I still feel that I didn't engage them enough.  guilt guilt guilt.  GAH!  Forget this!  It's Friday so let's have a happy diversion with our weekly Virtual Girls Night Out!  *For our weekly Friday night blog party all you need to make this party complete is to grab a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and get cozy! If you choose to leave your link to participate in a blog hop please do! I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Enjoy this post!  Or, if you like, add your blog link below and visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!"  Share the blog game/meme on your site to play along. 

Time For Some Tunes!

I do declare this song to be the Song Of The Summer 2013.  Let's see how Bill Clinton handles it.
