Virtual Girls Night Out - Let The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project Begin!

Party,Woman,Balloons,Ann Again... and again

You know that car I've been lamenting about?  Well, after 4 weeks, it's back in our driveway.  "Fixed" so they say.  This is taking us into the territory of "Disputing-Charges-and-Praying-No-One-Gets-Sued".  (I want to rock back and forth in a corner just at the thought.)  So... you know what I'm in the mood for?  A Virtual Girls Night Out!!!

*The VGNO blog-hop is for those who want to sneak away from family, if only for a little bit, and party "virtually" with other bloggers. More exposure for your blog is the point of VGNO. Connecting, supporting, encouraging - those words describe the VGNO Guest. So get on your bunny slippers, make yourself a cocktail add your blog link and have fun! Happy VGNO!*

Time For Some Tunes!

(I just saw this group on Thursday.  Lovely boys from Seattle.  They're fantastic!!!)

Hey Marseilles "Rio"

I have been listening to their debut cd over... and over... and over since the show.  Love them!!!

Time For A Cocktail!

Blame it on Rio

1 1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice
1/4 oz. Absolut Vodka
1/4 oz. Amaretto
1/4 oz. Banana Liqueur
1/4 oz. Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
1/4 oz. Malibu Rum
1/4 oz. Peach Schnapps
Soda Water
Shake and pour into a tall glass. Top with soda and garnish with lime squeeze.

My goodness that's a LOT of ingredients!  I may just do vodka with a splash of pineapple juice. Voila!

Time For A Project!

Last summer we started The Heart-Shaped Rock Project. The "little gem" got lost in a house along the way, so... due to lovely requests... I'm going to start it again.  And we have a first few stops lined up! 

Next week I will be mailing our little gem to Brenda "The Chaco Girl" in Paraguay.  How cool, right?   Then the heart-shaped rock heads to Carolee at "Come On Home".  How can you, you lovely blogging person, take part in the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project you ask?  Here's what you do:

*To participate; send your name & address to annharrisonATcomcastDOTnet. I'll create a chart of those that participate. The rock will be mailed to you and, once you receive our little heart-shaped gem, take a picture of it with something that represents you, it could be an object, a place, whatever you like. Post the picture on your blog letting your readers know you are participating in The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project. Also, when you receive our little gem, let me know and I'll send you the name & address of the next blogger to mail the little gem to. On and on it goes! (I hope :-> ). At the end of it's journey I'll create a slideshow of your pics. 

I can't wait to see your photos!!!

OK friends, off we go to show our support and blog-hop! Add your blog link and visit those that have left their links. Go mingle! Happy VGNO!

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&#
