Virtual GNO - St. Patrick's Day Edition


Yes, St. Patrick's Day is on Tuesday... but I need some time to warm up! My grandmother was Irish (she married a Scotsman, Oh the family drama), and my family honors our heritage. I wear my badge of the Boland family proudly. So let's get our Irish on and have some fun!

This is our Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too). Our social, blog-hopping party. A way for us to meet others without having to get out of our footie p.j.'s. 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 To Get Our Jig On!

The High Kings "Rocky Road To Dublin"


Yeah!!! There's no way for me to stay still when I hear these guys! :-> This music makes me thirsty.

Time For A Cocktail!

I'm going budget friendly with this recipe. (And it's not difficult to figure out how to make this alcohol free - if need be ;-> )

Jameson and Ginger
Ingredients:
1 1/2 parts Jameson Irish Whiskey
ginger ale
squeeze of a lime wedge

Preparation:
Pour the whiskey into a highball glass filled with ice.
Fill with ginger ale.
Squeeze a lime wedge over the drink and drop it in.
Stir.

Straight and to the point. I like that! And after chaperoning a class of 2nd graders on a wilderness field trip I desire a bit of Jameson and Ginger right now! We did have a good time. It's just that 8 year old energy times 25 can wear you out. The kids were able to look for meta-invertabrates and plant syllariah. (A.K.A. look for little water buggies and plant shrubs :-> ) This adventure inspires this weeks...

Party Game!

Being out in nature, and Tuesday being St. Patrick's Day, has inspired the name of this game. let's play...

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…

But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards.
