Virtual GNO - And A Giveaway!

So much is on my mind. The nightmarish bully situation in Florida. The decision weather or not to have my girls vaccinated for H1N1. And that crazy, and highly suspicious, balloon ride. (I really don't want to go on about it but that Dad? He's kinda nuts. And this family has been on Wife Swap not just once, but twice? I actually saw one of those episodes - I'm embarrassed to say - and I couldn't believe what a jerk he was. Now, well, this whole thing is just odd. Click here to see Joel McHale's take on him.)

Onward! Let's get our minds off of disturbing things and relax at a Virtual Girls Night Out. New here? This is what you do: Check out my main VGNO post then sign the MckLinky guest book below with your name/blog link. Visit fellow bloggers that have signed the MckLinky VGNO. Go blog-hopping!

Time For Some Music!

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&#
