Virtual GNO - Let's Get 2009 Started!

OK Now, On with a Virtual Girls Night Out. Last weeks was rained out - boo! - so let's get started.
Remember, this is our social evening without having to get out of our cozy pajamas. (If you are one who does go out in your p.j.'s that's just fine. I'm not judging!)
We are here to visit and play. The Virtual GNO is a way of meeting up with bloggers you know, and visit some new friends as well. So sign Mr. Linky below and join in the fun!

Time For Some Music

I'm getting a little risque with this video choice. I really like the song, and I really like Scott Weiland so here we go. (You might want to make sure the kiddies are out of the room for this one;-> )

Scott Weiland - "Paralysis"

My oh my! Whadja' think? (I have SO MANY comments about this video!) You know what I think it's time for?...

Time For A Cocktail

Since last weeks VGNO was put off by rain, this weeks recipe is titled...

Dark & Stormy
2 oz Dark Rum
3 oz Ginger Beer
lime wedge for garnish (if desired)
Build the ingredients in a highball glass filled with ice cubes.
Garnish with the lime wedge.
Or, forget the ice and warm it up! Rum is great warm.

Time To Share

Lovely blogger LaTonya from Che'Demi's Boutique posted this list and I loved it so much I asked if I could share it on my blog as well. Here are...

Thoughts for the New Year!

1. Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

2. Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in awhile.

3. Don’t treat God like a lawyer….only calling upon Him when you’re in trouble.

4. A gossiper is like an old shoe in which the tongue never stays in place.

5. The right temperature at home is maintained by warm hearts, not hot heads.

6. Nothing is often a good thing to say.

7. Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.

8. Conscience is that little voice that tells us Someone may be watching.

9. Middle age is when the products you bought with a lifetime guarantee begin to wear out.

Yep! It's time for me to buy some new products. (I'm still waiting for my Heidi Klum face to arrive.) Hey, do you have any products, or giveaways, that we should know about? Share with us!

And look at how lucky we are! Angie of Mama Bear Gets Chatty will give $5 off any premade Photo Greeting Card Design from her Etsy shop to those who mention VGNO in the message to seller! How cool is that!

Have fun at our Virtual GNO. Sign Mr. Linky to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that sign in! Go blog-hopping!

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…
