Virtual GNO - Spring Is Here!


By my calendar it says that this is the first day of Spring! Yeah!!! Now, for some of us, snow is still falling. What the ?!? Well, let's over-look the still winter weather and do what we can to create that happy, sunshine feeling. Let's have 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 your chance to hang out with blog friends and hopefully make some new friends as well. Sign Mr. Linky below and join in the fun!

Time To Groove!

Cheryl, "The Daily Blonde" brought this video to my attention and I felt it was a great way to share that warm and fuzzy Spring-like feeling.

I swear to God I cry every time that little lady hugs him in the beginning. Every time!!!

So now that the season of growth and renewal is upon us do you have plans to work in the garden? Perhaps start a garden? My husband totally gets into it. He's Farmer Rob all Spring and Summer. He even has a new green house to put together! (Anyone want to come over for pizza and beer and raise a green house? Yes?!) The idea of that work makes me thirsty :->

Time For A Cocktail!

Since the budget is a bit tight for just about all of us involved I'm keeping this weeks selection low-key.

MAIDEN'S BLUSH
Ingredients:
*Light, sweet red wine

~Serve in goblets, and for a bit of spring flair, serve with the rose petals floating on the top. (Can easily be made alcohol free)

Time For Some Fun!

Here's a fun site that helps you find Words In Words. Wordles.com. I want you to take your Blog title and see how many fun words can be found. I've got a lot of "A" 's in my title so silliness is a bit limited. Here it goes:

~Ding
~Gag
~Gaga
~Gin
~Nag

Nag?!! Not me. Now go see what your title creates. Have you done it yet? Have you done it now? Now?? (Nag? Nope,not me ;->)

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…
