Virtual GNO Blog Hop - Music Freebie!

Oh, to chaperone 50 3rd graders on a downtown field trip in the rain. I've paid my dues playing the chaperone role, so I'm passing this one on to my husband.

(Have fun today Honey ;-> )

Let's revel in the fact that we don't have to herd the children and have a blog-hopping Virtual Girls Night Out!

*Just what is a Virtual Girls Night Out? Let's see... it's a way to hang with blog pals with out the cost of hiring a babysitter. We've been hopping since 2008! It's a way to touch base with those you know, or meet someone new and begin a beautiful blog friendship - all in the comfort of your fuzzy bunny slippers. It's a blog-hopping Virtual Girls Night Out!*

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…
