Virtual Girls Night Out - Say My Name, Say My Name


So my 11 yr. old tells me she wants to be called something else.  She says she doesn't feel like a 'Lily'.  She wants to be called Rachel.  Hmmm.  When I was young I remember my pretend name be Marcia.  I had a very good reason for this because I lo-o-o-oved "The Brady Bunch" and Marcia was, well, you know, fantastic.  But my daughter doesn't have a Rachel in her real, or t.v., life.  What is up with this?!?  How about a little Virtual Girls Night Out then I'll get down to investigating. 

*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! 

Brandi Carlile "Dying Day"


If I could sing, I mean really sing, I would want to sound like Brandi Carlile.  *sigh* 


Time For A Cocktail!

Today is Epiphany (also The Twelve Day of Christmas) hence this recipe;

Epiphany 
Ingredients:
1 3/4 oz. Marker's Mark Bourbon
1/2 oz.  Creme de Mure Liquor
2 oz.     Pressed Apple Juice
Directions:
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass.

I'm confused what bourbon has to do with Epiphany.  But I'll give it a try ;->


Time For A Question!

With my daughter wanting to go by the name of 'Rachel' now, and my memory flash of wanting to be called Marcia, I was wondering if others went through this phase?  How old were you?  And what name did you choose for yourself?


Have fun at our Friday night Virtual Girls Night Out friends!  Cheers!!!

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 …

Taking Steps To Stay Away From Depression

Why do I read the news?   So depressing.  I'm at a place in my life where I need to focus on positive images, ideas and people whenever possible.  Why in the world do I click links that will only lead to negative, unhappy, heart-breaking information?  Ugh.  I don't understand myself.  If I'm going to avoid a depressive state of mind I need to stay far away from the negative.


Oh I need to read this everyday.  More than once a day.

There is good all around.  I'm going to keep looking for the positive, the humor, the kindness.   Do you have any suggestions on where I can find positive, funny, heart-encouraging news and images?  I would love to focus on what could go right in the world.  And... I would love to share more positive with anyone who will accept it.
