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!

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!

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…
