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?

Time For A Giveaway!

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 Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
