Last Call! - Virtual GNO - Last Weekend Of Summer

Alright!!!
The Race For The Cure was terrific this morning! I headed out the door with my 10 year old daughter and grabbed the hands of my mom and sister and off we went. There were an estimated 45,000 that participated! (Good thing I took it easy with the wine last night or else it would have felt like 100,000.) God bless and take care of all that need God's grace today, and always.
Now I'm going to go grab a beverage and put a parasole in it and dance! I'm going to play something from one of my new favorite bands.
Don't be afraid to mingle at our Girls Night Out. When someone leaves a comment go visit their blog and leave a comment. And when your blog is visited, go visit your guests blog. Keep the momentum going. And invite some of your blog pals if you like!
Come back though! It's a party!

Guillemots "Made Up Love Song"


Whew! Man I am loving this band!


I found something that makes me giggle so much because it's so-o-o absurd! I'm going to go freshen my drink. Watch this!

Michael Phelps - Poor Sportsmanship
See more funny videos at Funny or Die


I was so caught up in Michael Phelps making Olympic History that this caught me off-guard at first. It took me a little while to realize that the defeated swimmer was an actor. (Hello Ann?! The soft, pudgy shoulders? Hello?) Just the idea of Michael Phelps flipping someone off makes me laugh.

Here's a tune that closes out the evening (or does it? *wink* *wink*). I'm not a fan of disjointed people showing off their "talent", so parts of the video I have to look away from, but this song is just right for tonight.

Razorlight "In The Morning"


So go mingle at our Girls Night Out. I didn't share a wide-spread invitation like I have in the past because I found that some people don't like to be invited to a party. Hmmm?! Very curious who is in my "friends" list. If you would like to invite some of your blog pals that would be super! The more the merrier!
I'm going to go freshen my drink! I'll be back!

Oh Nancy, I've been trying to find a video of "Wipe Out" and I haven't found anything that's a good quality. I'll keep looking!

Remember... when someone leaves a comment go visit their blog and leave a comment. And when your blog is visited, go visit your guests blog. Keep the momentum going.
Come back though! It's a party!

I hope this Virtual GNO has helped facing Monday morning a little easier.

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…
