Virtual Girls Night Out - The Rising


Can't escape the symbolism of the date.  September 11, 2001. As much as I don't want to watch remembrances, relive it all, it's everywhere, all around us and a part of who we are.  So I will move through all my emotions and say how grateful I am to be where I am, and how honored I am by all of those that are trying to make things better.  Let's raise a glass, toast those that are truly deserving, and enjoy this Virtual Girls Night Out!

*The Virtual Girls Night Out is for those that don't have a chance to truly get out of the house but still want to "hang with their friends". So, make yourself a cocktail, put on some cozy "what-ever's" and have fun. Leave a comment to let us know you stopped by. We'll do the same and say "Happy VGNO!"*
Time For Some Tunes!

Time For A Cocktail!  


World Peace
Directions:
Place all the liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a white chocolate dove (or bird of choice).
Elderflower syrup?  Oh my, my how fancy!  I can't wait to taste lemon juice with almond syrup and gin.  This should make for a very interesting night ;->

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 Help Your Loved One to Recover

It can be very difficult to have a loved one who is battling an addiction. It can be hard to know what to do or how to help.
