As the shenanigan's of the neighbor kids (see last post) weighs on some parents, with our lengthy phone calls compairing notes on "what did they do in your neck of the woods last night?", I'm going to take a break from the drama and have fun with my blog pals at our Virtual Girls Night Out!

The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project!

This "little gem", found on the Oregon Coast, is being mailed around the globe! Bloggers receiving the rock take pictures of it when it reaches them and post those pictures on their blog. After your "T.H.S.R.P." picture-post, you mail the heart-shaped rock to the next blogger on the list. On and on it goes. Want to be on the list? There are 21 stops so far.  Send an email to me at and I'll send you all the information. First stop Connecticut!

Have fun at our Virtual Girls Night Out! If you like, leave your blog link and we'll visit your blog and say, "Happy VGNO!"

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…
