Virtual GNO - Laid Back and Independent


Easy does it. That's what we're doing so far this summer. The Pacific Northwest heatwave is hitting us now and the days seem to be a series of; open windows - water the garden - grab a popsicle. As the day gets hotter; pull the shades - close the windows - turn on the fans- grab a popsicle. Such a healthy diet!

Let's have a little laid back/Independence Weekend Virtual Girls Night Out!

First virtual party? 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.

Get Your BLOG Over Here!

Time For Some Tunes!

Now this is a song that you need to listen to in your convertible while driving down a gorgeous tree lined road, or ocean-sidled highway. Turn it up!

The Freddy Jones Band "In A Daydream"


Time For A Cocktail!

Daydream Cocktail
Ingredients:
1/2 oz Vodka
1/4 oz Triple Sec
3/4 oz Lemon Schnapps
1/4 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Grenadine
1/2 oz Half and Half

Directions:
In cocktail mixer filled with ice, combine all ingredients. Shake or stir & strain into rocks glass or large shot glass.

Dang! Just how large is that shot glass?!? I'll stick with a regular glass. I'm not so sure about the Half and Half. In this heat it might look a little funky.

OK VGNO friends, I have something I just HAVE to share with you. I don't know if I'm the last person to be aware of this product however, check out The Kush.



Um... alright. I understand how some women may feel more comfortable using this product but... um... honestly it looks like a dildo. There, I've said it. And the idea of sleeping with a dildo in between my boobs just does not appeal to me. And did you see the price?!? $50! Oh wait, they've been generous and lowered the price to $38.95. How sweet.

Time For A Question

Since this is a holiday weekend I would like to know how you are going to celebrate Independence Day?

A neighbor hosts the Bar-B-Que and fireworks so we'll be heading across the street for the festivities. Oregon has strict firework laws but Portland is right next to Vancouver, WA and their fireworks laws are more laid back. So every year you get the daredevils going "across the border" to buy illegal fireworks. Neighborhoods get pretty crazy around 9:30pm. Oh, those rebels!

So, what are your 4th of July plans?


No Giveaway this week. But, I'll try to wrestle up something good for next week. (Someone has a birthday on the 11th... who could it be? ;-> )

Alright now, go have fun! Sign in with Mr. Linky to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that sign-in. It's a party so go mingle. Go blog-hopping! That's what it's all about. Share this party with your blog friends, post A LINK to the Virtual GNO on your blog and have them join us. Send our party into the Twitter world.

And Be Safe This Weekend!!!

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…
