I mentioned a week ago that my 11 yr. old was starting Sex Ed. at school. We talked, we looked at books, we talked, she blushed, (I drank... just kidding... kind of) and I thought that it was under control and all was understood. But, last night, she just felt that she knew too much. She changed her mind and didn't want to grow up. I don't want her to either!!! Oh, if only we could go back. But that's just not a part of Mother Nature's plan.
You know what I need? 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, due to Mr. Linky not working for me (ARGH!) leave your blog link in the comment section. Visit fellow bloggers that have left their blog links. Go blog-hopping! *Don't let Mr. Linky bring us down.* I want everyone to connect.
Time For Some Tunes!
Kings of Leon - Use Somebody
I must listen to this song everyday. I just have to. In fact, I think I'll go listen to it again. Turn it up!
The weather has been oh-so-nice in my corner of the world so I've been getting my hands dirty in the garden. Guitar Guy has built two raised beds in our back yard to hold veggies and herbs.
They're great! He wants a chicken coop next. Hmmm....
Time For A Cocktail!
Oh, this drinks sounds perfect!
Citrus Lavender Martini
1 orange wedge
2 fresh lavender leaves, or 5-6 pieces dried lavender
1 ½ oz. vodka
½ oz. Cointreau
½ oz. sweet & sour mix
Muddle orange and lavender well in the bottom of a shaker. Add vodka, Cointreau, sweet and sour mix, and ice, and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Optional garnish – rim the glass with honey and dip the rim into raw sugar.
After a day in the garden I could definitely go for this!
Last week we had a great giveaway from Kernel Seasons. And this week I'd like to congratulate lucky winner... Debbie from Suburb Sanity! Enjoy your popcorn and all the fixings :->
Time For A Party Game!
As I look around my house I see a LOT of Barbie's. There's the Barbie in her scuba suit and the Barbie who's a Vet. These Barbie's are outside on the swing-set and in the garden too. But, these dolls don't represent the way I think they should. If I were a Barbie I would be "Sunscreen Barbie". Follow the chart below to see which Barbie you would be.
Use the chart to find which Barbie you are. Use the letter of your first name.
A - D = Sunscreen Barbie
E - H = Lactose Intolerate Barbie
I - L = Migraine Barbie
M - P = Blogger Barbie
Q - T = Mini Van Barbie
U - Z = Bi-Polar Barbie
Now, which Barbie are you? If you need to tweak this a bit, have fun!
