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 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.

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do. You don't want to make your loved one resent you or to be angry with you because you are trying to get them to stop, but you also can't just stand by and watch. An addiction, no matter what it is to, can consume the person who is addicted and it can also be fat…
