Virtual GNO - Guess Where I Am?

Hey! My dear party going Virtual GNO pals. Guess what? I'm not here. And by that I mean 'I'm not where I usually am when I'm having my Virtual GNO with you all'. I am blissfully at the Oregon Coast. As a matter of a fact, I'm looking at the Pacific Ocean right now. (Glancing away from laptop... there it is... gorgeous water...Nice) Heck. Let's still do it! Let's have a Virtual Girls Night Out.

Time For Something Completely Different

Hey friends I am on a laptop that is s-o-o s-l-o-o-o-w-w that it's painful. And with that I'm sure you can understand why this VGNO is going to be different, as in, no music this week and no party game. GEEZ! It's taken the system 5 minutes just to type this paragraph!!! And for this reason I need a lovely cocktail.

Time For A Cocktail!

A Day at the Beach

5 oz Amaretto
5 oz Grenadine
4 oz Orange juice
1 oz Coconut Rum
Mix together with crushed ice in a glass and garnish with mint leaves

Slow computer? What slow computer? This beverage makes me feel all warm and fuzzy :->

Who Wants To Play "VGNO Heart-Shaped Rock Cafe"?

While strolling on the beach I've found a heart-shaped rock. This rock has given me an idea. I want to send it to you! Once you receive the heart-shaped rock, take a picture of yourself, or someone (or place) special, with the rock in the picture and post it on your blog. You then will send the heart-shaped rock to the next VGNO guest. They take a picture with it, and so on, and so on, and so on. As the photo gallery grows I will create a little "VGNO Heart-Shaped Rock Cafe" slideshow of all of us.

Here's the plan:

1.) Leave me a direct e-mail letting me know you would like to participate. Include your mailing address. annharrisonATcomcastDOTnet
2.) I will compile a list of those that would like to participate. (Top Secret! Addresses are just for the VGNO Heart-Shaped Rock project. They go no where else.)
3.) I'll send you an e-mail confirming your mailing address before I mail the gem.
4.) Let me know when you receive the VGNO Heart-Shaped rock. I will then give you the mailing address of the next participant.

Just think of where my little Oregon Coast rock will go! The people it will visit! Oh, if only it were me, actually meeting you in person. *heavy sigh* (Guitar Guy wanted me to call it "Get Your Heart On", but I just couldn't bring myself to it ;->)

Now, my dear VGNO friends, I believe I'll go have a drink. You start mingling! Have fun! Click the MckLinky button to join the Virtual GNO. Visit those that have signed-in. 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 your readers join us. Send our party into the Twitter world. (#VGNO) The more the merrier! I want everyone to connect. That's what it's all about.

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

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
