Virtual GNO - Super Bowl XLIII Edition

There's going to be a football game this Sunday. Have you heard about it? ;-> I live in Oregon and we don't have a professional team. I'm sure that's why I'm apathetic to the hype. However, I love any occasion that brings out the chips and dip so, Yeah! Super Bowl XLIII! Whoo-Hooo!!!

My husband is from Chicago so he's as excited as any Bears fan would be about this years game. ("Oh. Is There a game? Uh.") However he does make fantastic Wings and I can't wait to get my hands on 'em! I allow myself a calorie-count-free-day for the Super Bowl. Potato chips, wings, dip. Yummmm.... Once a year. I can do this once a year. The Super Bowl is all about food as far as I'm concerned. Anyone else?

This is a Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too :-> ), a social evening without having to get out of our cozy pajamas. We are here to visit other blogs and play. The Virtual GNO is a way of meeting up with bloggers you know, and make some new friends as well. So sign Mr. Linky below and join in the fun!

Time For Some Music!

I'm eagerly awaiting the new U2 album (That's right. I said album.) They were part of the Half-Time entertainment in 2002. (Amazing job honoring Sept. 11th victims.) Here's a little something to tide me over until the album comes out. *look closely at the crowd scenes*

U2 "Window In The Skies"
One of my all-time favorite videos. Fantastic work.


Time For A Cocktail!

"Smoothie With A Kick"
Ingredients:
Frozen Berries
Coconut Milk
Pineapple Juice
Club Soda
Dark Rum
Crushed Ice

Preparation: Get out your blender and mix the ingredients to your liking. A little more of this, a tad more of that. YUM!!!

Time For A Party Game!

"I Will. I Won't. I Wish".
*answer these questions with the first letter of your last name*

~I Will: Have more laughs with my children
~I Won't: Have trouble eating chips & dip this Sunday ;->
~I Wish: Human-kind would be just that, more Human and more Kind.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

OK now, have fun at our Virtual GNO. Sign Mr. Linky to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that sign-in! Go blog-hopping! And I would love to meet your blog friends. Post our party on your blog and hopefully they will join us:-> Have fun!

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…

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do.
