Virtual Girls Night Out - Burning Diaries and The Rock Is Back!

I did something yesterday that was necessary for me, but not understood by most.  I burned my diaries.

While up in the attic, searching for our Christmas decorations, I came across my journals from the ages 17 to 22.  I sat on the cold floor and read them.  I laughed at some things, cringed at most, and was depressed when I got to the end.  Reliving those times really isn't necessary.  Oh, I'll share more later, but for now it is done - burned - ashes - done.  So I'm going to celebrate at our Virtual Girls Night Out!

 *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!

R.E.M. "We All Go Back To Where We Belong" 


No matter how new their songs are, I will hear R.E.M. and "be" 17 to 22.  I love them.  They are good therapy.


Time For A Cocktail!

Ingredients:
1/3 shot Kahlua
1/3 shot Bailey’s Irish Cream
1/3 shot Tequila (white)
1 dash cinnamon
Directions:
Carefully layer this shot with Kahlua on the bottom, Bailey’s in the middle, and tequila on top. Light the tequila on fire and sprinkle with cinnamon. Down it. It’s just like warm pumpkin pie.

I say 'Heck Ya'!'  Sounds delicious!!!

Time For The Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project!

My dear blog buddies that have participated in the blog photo project are sharing the most endearing pictures that I get overwhelmed and cry.  These are happy tears.  My intention for this project was to create a bond, to somehow share a positive energy with our little "gem" from the Oregon Coast.  And I believe it's working! Here's the last visit with Nicki:
Nicki's an EMT :->
You MUST visit Nicki's blog "Diaries of a Neurotic Non-Trad" (diary!!!) and see all of her photos. You must! So wonderful.  I received a message from Renee at "Until Something Shiny Comes Along" saying that our rock arrived safely at her place in Washington State.  On and on we go!  Would you like to participate in the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project?  Click here for the information.

Alright my dear blog buddies.  Have a wonderful time at our Virtual Girls Night Out.  Leave a comment to let us know you stopped by.  (We'll visit you too :->)

My Biggest Regret In High School - Care To Share Yours?

Ah yes... I remember it well... unfortunately...   (~~~~trip back to 1980~~~~) High School. To paraphrase Dickens, "It was the best of times, it was the most-hair-style-challenged of times".  I remember a picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair,  the hair , my  hairstyle 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 since this school was known for the preppiness that was sweeping the John Hughes lovin' nation.  "K." was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. "W." was going for 'All Monogrammed, All The Time" and I was going to ditch the bell-bottoms, wear Levi's and have the hairstyle of my dreams.   I have straight, thick hair and had always wanted curly hair. When I would see girls with curly hair they always seemed so a
