Virtual GNO - Summer Vaca & A Giveaway!

The best part of summer vacation is sleeping in. Oh yeah baby, now we're talkin'! I can't tell you the joy it gives me to know that I don't need to be "up-and-at-'em" every morning. There is definitely a difference between just having to get yourself together to go to work and getting children up and ready for the day. We can relax with the morning challenge for a few months now. Ya-hoo!

Hey! I know, let's celebrate with a Virtual Girls Night Out!

New guest? Welcome! The original Virtual GNO is a blog-hopping party that began in the summer of 2008. I couldn't get a sitter and was in desperate need for time away from my children and some adult conversation. I decided to do 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 Dance!

George Michael "Freedom"

I always wanted to wrap my hair in a towel and whip it up like Cindy Crawford does. And those legs?! Man. Oh well, maybe in another life. In this one I'm working on just stopping my thighs from rubbing together when I walk.

Time For A Cocktail!

1.5 oz. Bacardi Limon Rum
1/2 oz. Midori Melon Liqueur
1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
Shake with ice and strain into a shot glass.

I try to stay away from blue drinks, but I'll give this a try. (But maybe that's the point with this drink being called "Supermodel". Drink the blue drink, get sick, *poof* no calories! )

Time For A Question

Has anyone ever told you you looked like someone famous? I have friends who I think look like so-and-so but no one has ever told me I look like a celebrity, etc. When I was young I had the Kristy McNichol look going, but that was about it. What about you?

My Biggest Regret In High School - Care To Share Yours?

Ah yes... I remember it well... unfortunately...   (~~~~trip back to 1980~~~~) High School. To paraphrase Dickens, "It was the best of times, it was the most-hair-style-challenged of times".  I remember a picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair,  the hair , my  hairstyle 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 since this school was known for the preppiness that was sweeping the John Hughes lovin' nation.  "K." was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. "W." was going for 'All Monogrammed, All The Time" and I was going to ditch the bell-bottoms, wear Levi's and have the hairstyle of my dreams.   I have straight, thick hair and had always wanted curly hair. When I would see girls with curly hair they always seemed so a
