Closing Night of G.N.O. 7/27

Oh I needed this.
This is the longest Girls Night Out I've ever had!

Are we all set? Get your beverage of choice. Regina from Margarita Bloom is making her famous, you guessed, margaritas! (Oh that sounds good!)

Radiohead "Jigsaw Falling Into Place"
(We can only tolerate this before the margaritas kick in!)

Now, Regina has tagged me to list Six Quirky things. Now, I know I said on Friday that I'd rather be quirky than any thing else, but I don't know if I should announce 6 more things. Someone just might come and take me away in a tight fitting white jacket with lots of snazzy little buckles on it!

So how about I pass this along to 6 like I was supposed to. Play along, or don't. No pressure. It's just a party game. Everyone play!

And... after every quirk listed...you take a drink!

Cheryl "The Daily Blonde"
Ruth "and baby makes three"
Jenn "Peacock's Nesting Place"
Jen "Lipgloss & Baseball"
Je (Just kidding)
Lane Boyz Mom "KooKoo For Cocoa Puffs"

Time to dance

Oh, I wish I new how to make those fun little badges that I see so many sharing out there in this blog world. Fun awards and all. (I can make one just for me to see but I just don't know how to make it a link, etc.)
Maybe someone can come up with a great little badge that says "I Survived Virtual Girls Night Out July 25-27, 2008"

While the first virtual G.N.O. comes to a close I just want to thank you all for coming! I hope you had a blast. I hope you found some new music you like and made some friends.

I believe Jen at Cheaper Than Therapy is planning the next one, is that right Jen? And another big "Thank You" to my music guru Jen at "Lipgloss & Baseball" for being last nights guest D.J. She's terrific!

I'll do this again when needed. (But that could get a little hazy... when is a girls' night out NOT needed? Huh?)

I'll close the night with a mellow tune. So beautiful.

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…
