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 ;-> )
1/2 Shot White Rum
1 Shot De Kuyper Crème De Cassis
Top up Orange Juice
1/2 Shot Lemon Juice
Directions:Shake ingredients together in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a highball glass half filled with cubed ice. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
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 ;->
