Virtual GNO - And A Giveaway!



Hey! How's it goin'? It's Friday and I'm oh-so-glad. My girls had appointments at the dentist yesterday and I think I was dreading it more than they were. I had bad experiences when I was young and I should just let go, but the sound of that drill?!? Yikes! I believe we all deserve a little fun. How about some blog-hopping fun? :-> And, because we are so darn lucky, a Giveaway from our beautiful friend Robin at Cinnamon and Honey!

This is our Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too). Our social party without having to get out of our footie p.j.'s. We're here to blog-hop and play. The Virtual GNO is your chance to hang out with blog friends and hopefully make some new friends as well! So sign Mr. Linky below and join in the fun!

Time For Music!

Did you know that Sunday is International Women's Day? Yeah for us! I found a song that helps to celebrate us all. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Time For A Cocktail!

Hey, daylight savings time begins Sunday. Woot! Woot! I love having more daylight but I don't like losing an hour of sleep. (I just love sleeping. And naps. I miss them both. Maybe when the girls move out. :-> ) I'm in the mood for something that makes me hopeful for warm weather.

Time For A Party Game!

Since this is Women's History Month : "Woman - In One Word"

If your first name begins with the letter A - E describe women in one word beginning with the letter W. Since I'm Ann I will proudly shout "WONDERFUL!" Follow the chart to see which letter you will use.

A - E = W
F - J = O
K - O = M
P - T = A
U - Z = N

Get out your Thesauruses! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

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.

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…
