Virtual GNO - I'm Sassy Sue!



It's here. It's really here. Summer vacation. The last day of school was Wednesday and my girls are already bored. GEEZ! I've compiled a list of things to do. I've bought snacks and offered to put up a tent in the backyard, just something out of the ordinary to get the summer fun going. But what do I hear? "I'm bored". Ugh. Transitions aren't easy. I think I'll runaway to the tent!
You know what I need? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

New to the party? Welcome! The original Virtual GNO is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008 when I couldn't get a sitter and was in desperate need for time away from my children and some adult conversation. I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. At least I can "get out" in my imagination.

To join the blog-hopping fun, check out my VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guest book with your name and blog link. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed in. It's a party so at a party you mingle, right? Go blog-hopping! I want everyone to connect. That's what it's all about.

Time To Sing!

Oh man, this movie came out in 1978. All summer long I begged my mom to take me to this movie again and again and again. I had the soundtrack and acted out the parts. I was obsessed. (And my mom was concerned. Think about it. A sweet girl changes her ways to become a bad girl to attract the guy. NOT GOOD! But I didn't care about that stuff. I just loved the music. Ah youth.)

Grease - "We Go Together"



No matter what, if this movie comes on, I'll watch it. Love it!

Time For A Cocktail

Pink Lady (Are you surprised? Nope ;-> )
Ingredients:
1/2 Shot White Rum
1 Shot De Kuyper Crème De Cassis
Top up Orange Juice

Ooooohhh I can't remember what Cassis tastes like but I can't wait to find out :-> This sounds like something yummy to sip while I'm hiding in the backyard tent singing to the Grease soundtrack. I'm sure my neighbors won't mind ;->

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…
