Virtual Girls Night Out - I Took It Off!


(*the video is starting automatically tonight.  scroll down to pause, if you like*)

I made a change today.  Nothing too "out there" but something that was just enough to make a difference.  I had 7 inches cut off and added some bangs:


 Ta Da!!!

My 13 year old isn't too hip to the change but my 10 year old likes it.  (I did it for me, so I'm not heart broken if I haven't won over the crowd.)  I say this is a perfect excuse to get our Virtual Girls Night Out started!

*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!

The world is going mad.  Mad I tell ya'!  We might as well listen to some music and enjoy the ride.

Seal "Crazy"



(Darn.  Had to delete the video.  But it's a good song!  Hum it ;->)

Time For A Cocktail!


Crazy Cocktail
Ingredients:
2 oz Malibu coconut rum
1 - 1 1/2 oz DeKuyper Raspberry Pucker schnapps
1 - 1 1/2 oz melon liqueur
2 oz Mountain Dew lime soda
4 - 6 oz pineapple juice
Preparation Instructions:
Combine all ingredients together in a collins glass filled with ice cubes. Stir well, and serve.

Um... that does sound crazy.  (It actually kinds of scares me) Perhaps the melon liqueur, raspberry schnapps and pineapple juice.  I can handle that.  Cheers! ;->


Time For A Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Update!


We are getting back in the grove with our little gem.  It's currently at Nicki's place "Diaries of a Neurotic Non-Trad", then it's heading to Kent, WA to visit Renee at "Until Something Shiny Comes Along".  I've recently received interest from Texas and as far away as Australia.  How cool is that?!  Malaysia is coming up soon. Wow.  Our little heart-shaped rock sure does get around.  Lucky duck!

Check out the sweater (I'm calling it a sweater) that Tracie has made for our rock.  This is how Nicki received it!  Just fantastic.

This is such a fun blog photo project.  If you haven't signed up, think about it.  It's pretty painless.  We have 17 stops left to go on our list and I would love to add some more.  Share this with your blog readers, perhaps they would like to take part in the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project.  Click here for the info.


Alright dear blog friends, have fun at our Virtual Girls Night Out.  If you stop by, leave a comment so that I (and our other guests) can visit you as well and say 'Happy V.G.N.O.!' :->

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 Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
