Virtual GNO - Calgon Take Me Away Edition Registered & Protected

It's Spring Break for us this week and I'm happy to say my job as event coordinator is almost over. (I don't know how parents that home-school do it. I praise you all!) I've tried to plan fun things for my girls, and their friends, however I think they've spent too much time together and I'm like Julie from The Love Boat trying to keep Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor from tearing each others wigs apart. Oops. Is that referrence to obscure for some of you? Let say it's like trying to keep Mary Kate and Ashley Olson from tearing each others hair extensions out. You know what I need? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

A Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too)is a social, blog-hopping party. A way for us to meet others without having to get out of cozy p.j.'s and fluffy slippers (Boys, I'm not judging ;->). The Virtual GNO is our chance to hang out with blog friends and hopefully make some new friends as well. Sign Mr. Linky below and join in the blog-hopping fun!

I'm feeling crazy today. Totally goofy. My girls have driven me bonkers and I know what will make me feel better this week.

Time For A Sing-A-Long!

Grab your hairbrush/microphone and sing out loud

"The Love Boat Theme Song"

Again! Again!

I feel a desire for something refreshing. Something that Isaac the Bartender would make just for me while I lounge on the Lido Deck.

Time For A Cocktail!

The Love Boat

1. Vodka - 3/4 oz.
2. Coconut Cream - 3/4 oz.
3. Pineapple Juice - 1.7 oz.
4. Bols Blue - 0.61 oz.

Stir well and serve in a cocktail glass.

Ah... now my girls arguements don't seem to bother me as much. (I had never heard of Bols Blue. Click the name/link above to find out more :-> )

Time For A Party Game! And A Giveaway!

Oh, I'm not done with The Love Boat. (It's my happy place this week.) I'm going to throw out some words and it's up to you to use your creative writing skills. Time for the game:

"Captain Stubing Walks Into A Bar"

Turn these words into a silly, strange, freaky or completely wild little story.

**Lounge **Gopher
**Captains Table **Zsa Zsa Gabor
**Charo **Pacific Princess
**Lido Deck **Pool

I need something to lift my spirits after this week so I can't wait to read what you come up with. And since Spring is upon us I will be sending seeds to start your own Salsa Garden to the person who is the most creative. (And I know you VGNO guests! You're great writers which will make it hard to choose. I just might be helping to start a lot of gardens this Spring!) Confirm in the comments that you've participated. Good luck! (Winner chosen 4/2/09)

This week I would like to spotlight our friend Tasha of "Catch The Drift". She is supporting hand-made by hosting a fantastic "Esty Easter Extravaganza" giveaway. Please visit her site for all the current details.

Now go have fun! Sign in with Mr. Linky below to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that sign-in. Go blog-hopping! That's what it's all about. And I would love to meet your blog friends. Post A LINK to our party on your blog and hopefully they will join us :->. Send our party into Twitter world. The more the merrier!

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.
