Virtual Girls Night Out - Unorganized

I'm so behind in my Easter plans. I can't believe how soon it is! I better get myself in gear and start organizing. But not before I hang out with my blog friends at our Virtual Girls Night Out!

* The VGNO is for those of us who couldn't get a baby-sitter but still need to break away from the cries and demands of our family, if only for a little bit. This is a blog-hopping party that's began in 2008. Check out this post, then add your blog name & link to Simply Linked below. Click on blog links that have joined our party. Visit new friends & go blog-hopping! Happy VGNO! *

Time For A Cocktail!

White Pear Martini
Ingredients:
- 1 oz. brewed white pear tea, cooled
- 1 oz. vodka
- 2 oz. pear nectar
Directions:
Combine in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a thin slice of pear.

Ah... delicious! Tastes like Spring to me. (That is, if Spring had a taste.)

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…
