Virtual Girls Night Out - Hopping

Waking up to pouring rain shouldn't be unusual to me, I do live in the Pacific Northwest after all. It's just that yesterday was sunny, and the sun felt so good and so hopeful and this rain... this rain that seems to be pelting so-o-o-o many in the United States (my heart goes out to you East Coasters) is a big flippin' drag!!! Enough already!!!

Whew...

OK. I am in need of an intense, completely absorbing (see the bottom of this post and you'll see why) blog-hopping good ol' Virtual Girls Night Out! Let's get going.

I've played this at the VGNO before. But it's so worth showing/hearing again.


Time For A Freebie!

The rain will stop eventually... right? When it does, how about planting a garden that will attract some beautiful butterflies. You can receive free butterfly garden seeds from Live Monarch Seeds. All you need to do is send a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

OK. My 11 yr. old niece is staying with us for a few days for her Spring Break. (My daughters had theirs 2 weeks ago.) This is all just kinda crazy, um... that's all I'm going to say - for now. E-mail me for more details! ;-> I will be distracting myself with happiness by blog-hopping like a good little blogging friend should!

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…
