Virtual GNO - They Say It's My Birthday! & A Giveaway!



Whoo - Hoo! I may be sleep deprived from having a sick child and, I may be spending the better part of the day cleaning up after said sick child but, hey! I'm going to celebrate my birthday a day early (It's really on 7/11) and make sure all of my VGNO friends get gifts too! Let's get this Virtual Girls Night Out going!!!

First Virtual GNO party? Welcome! The original Virtual GNO is a blog-hopping party that I started last summer. (Wow! I can't believe it's been a year!) I really needed some time away from my precious children, and some adult conversation but, I couldn't get a sitter. So, I did the next best thing and turned to my blog friends. At least I can "get out" in my imagination.

Time For A Question

Seeing as I have Coldplay as my birthday party's "house band" (I live in my own little world, don't I? ;-> ) I was wondering... what band, or artist, would you have play at your birthday party? I know this is going to be good.

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…
