Virtual GNO - Working At The Mom Thing - And A Giveaway!


ARGH!

Mother's Day is Sunday and this morning I growled at my daughter. (You know, that deep throat grumble that's one step away from all out screaming). Well... I guess no "Mother Of The Year" awards are coming my way.

She can just be so much. All. The. Time. And I couldn't believe that she was ready to rumble first thing in the morning, I mean, come on?! I feel terrible. You know what I need? A Virtual Girls Night Out! (A real one would be best :-> )

New to the party? Welcome! The original Virtual Girls Night Out (boys welcome too) is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008. I couldn't get a sitter and I needed time away from my children desperately. So, I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. This is how we do it. Check out my VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guestbook below. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed in as well. Go blog-hopping!

Now, go put on something cozy and settle in for the party. Add your blog link to Mr. Linky below and join in the blog-hopping fun!

Time To Dance!

This is for all the women out there, mother's or not.

Des'ree - "You Gotta Be"


That's right! Be bad, be bold, be wiser. I've got to work on the "Cool, calm, gotta stick together" part today. (*Deep Breath*)

Time For A Cocktail!

Mom-osa
Ingredients:
5 oz Orange Juice
5 oz Ginger Ale
1 Dash Mango Nectar
1 Mandarin Piece
Champagne

Directions:
Pour orange juice and ginger ale in equal parts into a chilled highball glass. Add mango nectar. Slowly add Champagne. Garnish with speared mandarin piece, and serve.

If I start my day with some of these I'll be picking my girls up from school after a little nappy-poo. Dirty laundry? What dirty laundry? Smells fine to me! *hiccup*

Time For Sharing!

I've been sharing that I've started a real exercise program. I'm excited and also nervous. I've joined a gym and its brought out my stupid anxiety. None of the scenarios I see in my head come true, which leads me to a question for you all. Have you ever had one of those visions of walking into a room and everyone is staring at you and you realize you tucked your skirt into your underwear? OK now, have you ever actually DONE something like that? Or anything along those lines? Come on now, share :->

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. 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. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
