Virtual G.N.O.- Post HSM3

Second night, same as the first. For those that were dancing in the aisles at the opening night of "High School Musical 3". (Oh, you're wonderful parents. Yes, you are!!!)

I need to let loose. The last few nights have been crazy with my little one. She hasn't been feeling well, which means that sleep is all messed up. And last night we discovered that Ibuprofen can put her into a bit of a hallucinogenic state. Really!!! She was freaking out about not being able to stop counting. She was dazed and kept asking "What's 5 + 1 ?" or "What's the number below 8?"
She could not rest well so we stayed up most of the night talking about numbers and shapes. whee-ee-ee (yawn)
And I did that after coming home from seeing "Spring Awakening" again! (Thank you husband!!!) I think I'm a groupie now. Maybe I'll follow them to California.

So on with the evening. Here's how a Virtual GNO is done; when someone leaves a comment go visit their blog and leave a comment. When your blog is visited go introduce yourself to your guest. But come back! It's a party! Invite your friends.

Go grab a beverage of your choice and let's dance.

Spoon - "Don't You Evah"


Groovy tune.

OK. We need a drink recipe for tonight. And since Halloween is next week let's choose a nice Vampire Kiss. (I'm in the mood for Rum, but you can easily omit it.)

Vampire Kiss
2 parts Malibu Passion Fruit Rum
1 part tonic water
Splash of cranberry juice

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with seasonal fruit. (Maybe a black cherry.)

Hey, is anyone dressing up for Halloween? I don't dress-up so I don't have any fun pictures to show. Do you have some costumed pics you want to share? Post them and let me know! Tattooed Minivan Mom has posted one. Caroline of The Zen In You has used her gorgeous talents and posted some images.
Now, here are some costumes that some might find quiet frightening!

McCain and Palin in "High School Musical 3"
They've got some moves! Thanks for this Alex!

Now here's something from my dear friend Toni. I just have to share.

Enough with the politics already, right?!? (Don't answer that.)

I've got my drink mixed and I'm ready. Now go 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!

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…
