Virtual GNO - 3-Day Weekend and A Giveaway!

Am I the only one still in town for the 3-Day weekend? I feel like it.

Yesterday I was a chaperone for my youngest's field trip to a working farm. It was a beautiful day and the opportunity to spend the day in the sun was fantastic. (I live in Oregon... 'nuff said) 2nd graders have crazy energy and incredible minds which lead many of the parents to ask "Is there a bar in the barn by chance?"

You know what I'm in the mood for? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

New to the party? Welcome! The original Virtual Girls Night Out is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008. I couldn't get a sitter and I was in desperate need for time away from my children. So, I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends.

To join the blog-hopping fun, check out my VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guestbook below. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed in as well. Go blog-hopping!

Time For Some Tunes!

Carolina Liar "Show Me What I'm Looking For"

My latest daily listen. Love it!!! But where is the rest of the band? Chad Wolf is adorable but hey, have you seen these guys?!? (Not that their level of hotness decides weather I like their music or not but it doesn't hurt ;-> )

Time For A Cocktail!

Carolina Iced Tea
1 1/2 oz Southern Comfort®
1 oz Captain Morgan® Original spiced rum
1 oz peach schnapps
1/2 oz vodka
5 oz sweet iced tea

Add alcohol and stir lightly. Pour in iced tea. Stir a few more times and serve.
Note: Add a splash of lemon and garnish with a twist for a classy drink or serve in a mason jar for a real down-home feel.

Goodness gracious! No wonder things seem to move slower in the South. They've got some kick-ass Iced Tea ;->

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 Monogram
