Part II GNO-Back To School Addition

There's just no way that ONE Girls Night Out is enough!

Last night we started a party game "The Mighty Four". (Some of you fell asleep, ahem, not naming names but it rhymes with Penn ;-> ) The game is still going, play along! (I can't wait to see what your four are!) Add some new ones if you want. Go crazy!

I've found a yummy punch recipe. (See Below). Listen to these guys while you make your drink! (My school assemblies were NEVER like this!)

Guillemot's "Trains To Brazil"

This should be good. Let's try it!

Jewel Punch
1 liter Ginger Ale
3 cups Purple Grape Juice
1 1/2 cups Vodka
1/4 cup Cointreau or triple sec
Ice
Sliced Strawberries and Cherries, if you like
(* Substitute Orange Juice for Vodka & Cointreau if you like!)

* Combine the ginger ale, cherries, strawberries, grape juice, vodka and Cointreau in a punch bowl and stir well. Pour into ice-filled glasses.
Cheers!


A couple of days ago I was feeling a little down...



And then I was a lucky winner of some beautiful earrings made by Keep It Classy Jen at Post Point of View!

My little Lily likes them too!
Go visit Jen's new jewelry site Nola Meadows Studio. Yes, she's a blogger from Louisiana so let's send some support as she gets her life back in order after Gustav.

Here's something from my music guru Jen at Lipgloss & Baseball. She finds such great stuff. If you know Radiohead, then you should know the song "Creep". But I'm sure you've never heard it like this. So dang funny!!!

Richard Cheese "Creep"

I believe another glass of punch is called for! Yum!

Remember, don't be afraid to mingle. When someone leaves a comment go visit their blog. And when your blog is visited, go visit your guests blog. Keep the momentum going. Come back though! It's a party!!!

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…
