Virtual Girls Night Out - Get Your Eleven On!


Once in a century.  Can you believe it?  Once in a century the date 11 - 11 - 11 happens and here we are, livin' it.  Did you do anything special at 11:11 am?  Or pm?  Today is the National Observance of Veterans Day.  I think it's pretty special to have this holiday fall on the date of these magical numbers.  Let's start celebrating and get our Virtual Girls Night Out going!

*The Virtual Girls Night Out is for those that don't have a chance to get out of the house but still want to "hang with their friends". So, make yourself a cocktail, put on something cozy and have fun. Leave a comment to let us know you stopped by. We'll visit your blog and say "Happy VGNO!"*

Time For Some Tunes! 


Schoolhouse Rock!  "The Good Eleven"


As far as I'm concerned Schoolhouse Rock was right there with my "formal" education.  I learn/retain things so much better when they're put to music.


Time For A Cocktail!

We are a Marine family, so this is very fitting.

2 oz.    Orange Juice

Time For A Question!

What do you have planned for this day honoring Veterans?  Have you done anything special for 11-11-11,  A.K.A. "Nigel Tufnel Day" ? Time to spread a little Spinal Tap love.

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…
