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.

* The VGNO is for those 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. The VGNO blog-hopping party 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! And... if you don't have time to blog-hop tonight, that's cool. Add your link any way & I bet you'll be able to visit friends tomorrow... or the next day... or the next day. Happy VGNO! *

Time For Some Tunes!

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:

Live Monarch Seeds

Boca Raton, Florida 33434



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!

*Now add your blog link to Simply Linked below and join the Virtual Girls Night Out! Visit those that have signed in. The list will grow through out the weekend so come back and see who has joined our party. I hope you meet some wonderful bloggers! Have fun!

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 Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
