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 Monogram

How to Help Your Loved One to Recover

It can be very difficult to have a loved one who is battling an addiction. It can be hard to know what to do or how to help. Luckily there are many resources, programs and even rehabilitation centers that are specifically designed to not only help you to know what to do but also to help your loved one to recover.
