Virtual GNO - Oprah's Everywhere, Even In My Dreams

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!

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!

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!

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
