As we settle into summer temperatures around 90 degrees, I'm OK with that. I mean, I'd rather deal with that then crazy 100 + temperatures. It's incredible what a difference those few digits make. I'm ready to sip something cold, sit in front of a fan and have a Virtual Girls Night Out!
New to the Virtual GNO? Welcome! This party has some of the best bloggers around! The original Virtual Girls Night Out is a blog-hopping party that I started last summer. After a very long week I wished for one night away from my precious children and some adult conversation. However, I couldn't find child care so, I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. I'm "virtually out" with all of you!

Time For A Sing-A-Long!
If it's summertime, it's time for an Indigo Girls show!
Indigo Girls "Get Out The Map"
I love 'em!!! If you don't have an Indigo Girls cd yet, you should. (I'll tell you which are my favorites, if you need any help :-> )
I am so-o-o-o ready for a road trip. I'm ready to load up the car, grab some snacks and hit the road. Just go! Rob and I drove from Oregon to Connecticut a few times and every trip was fantastic. We had our share of car break downs, flat tires, etc. but still, those were some of the best times of my life. Oh how I would love to do that again, to take off right when the sun is coming up.
Time For A Cocktail!
•1 1/2 oz brandy
•1/2 oz maraschino liqueur
•1/2 oz pineapple juice
•1/2 oz orange curacao liqueur
•2 dashes Angostura bitters
•lemon peel for garnish
*Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice & shake.
*Strain into a chilled cocktail glass & garnish with a lemon twist.
If I have too many of these I would be taking off sometime in the afternoon, no early rising for me! Yummy Yummy!

Time For A Question
I know where I would rather be right now. I would love to be in Calistoga, CA enjoying Sparkling Wine at Mumm. Then (after the appropriate amount of time ;-> )drive along the winding roads with our top down and the tunes guiding us along. 'What's that? Another winery? Let's visit!' Ahhh, dreamy. Where would you rather be?
