Another week older (Thank You SO MUCH for the birthday wishes!!!) and feeling great... (and tired and sweaty and sweaty some more). Portland's back in the swing of things with the hot weather so let's break out our oscillating fans and have fun at the Virtual Girls Night Out!
Haven't done this before? Welcome! The original Virtual GNO is a blog-hopping party that I started last summer. I really needed some time away from my precious children, and some adult conversation but, I couldn't find child care. So, I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. I'm "virtually out" with you all!
Get Your BLOG Over Here!
To join the blog-hopping fun, check out this VGNO post then sign the Mr. Linky guest book with your name/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 For A Winner!
Our fantastic friend Regina from Margarita Bloom was offering a Strawberry Angel Cake Cupcake Love Soap to one lucky VGNO guest last week, and that lucky guest was Heather at Hobsoncrew! Congratulations Heather. The VGNO guests worked very hard to win this prize. Thanks again Margarita Bloom for the giveaway. Let's congratulate Heather on Twitter "@hobsoncrew".
Time For A Question
What is one of the strangest dreams you've ever had?
Last night I had one of the weirdest dreams. I'm sure our little heat wave played a part. I dreamt that I was at Fred Meyers (a grocery store). I heard a commotion in the parking lot so I went to check it out. Who do I find? Oprah Winfrey in a cage made of cyclone fencing doing her Oprah shout, announcing that it was Fight Club time. She was telling us it was important to get our aggressions out and picked two women to get the show going.
Well, I was so upset by this that I started yelling at Oprah, telling her I thought she was horrible. How could you do this Oprah?!? How?
At this point I woke up. What the heck?!? How weird! Dear Ms. Oprah Winfrey, when you read this (she's my blog lurker, I just know it ;-> ) could you please call me? I really need to talk about this dream with you. Perhaps we could discuss it on your show? Let me know.
What is a weird dream of yours? I bet there are some doozies!!
Next Friday I will have a giveaway from a cool company. I just couldn't get myself organized this week, so please visit again next Friday and enter to win!
