Virtual Girls Night Out - Go Chris Mann!


I got tired of suggesting to my girls that they should do something else besides t.v. watching and computer games.  "Mom", they remind me, "we go outside and play with our friends too!".  Well, not often enough.  So, I headed to Michael's (it's a craft store in our area.  do you have it too?  I love it!) to become inspired.  I picked up some latch hook designs, one cat, one dog and sat with my girls to learn/teach how to make their soon-to-be pillow or wall hanging.  My hope is for a new project a week.  We'll see how this goes.  For now though, let's have a little break and take part in our Virtual Girls Night Out!

*The VGNO is for those who want to party "virtually" with other bloggers. Get on your fuzzy slippers, make yourself a cocktail, and have fun!  Leave a comment to let us know you've stopped by.  Happy VGNO!*


Time For Some Tunes!

As a member of the One2One Network I was introduced to the wonderful voice, and personality, of Chris Mann years ago.  He's very talented (and very funny).  He was prepping his followers to watch The Voice for his audition, so I did, and I cried.  He was fantastic.  He has a beautiful, powerful voice with so much emotion that it carries you away.  So romantic.  Check him out:

I get teary.  Go Chris.  Go Team Xtina!  Hear more from Chris on ChrisMannMusic's Channel (click here).


Time For A Cocktail!

Ingredients:
1 - 1 1/2 oz peach schnapps
4 - 6 oz frozen mango mix
1 tbsp grenadine syrup
Directions:
The mango mix should be blended with crushed ice first then with the schnapps. Pour the schnapps and mango mix into a cocktail glass with the grenadine already placed at the bottom.
Sounds delicious!  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. Luckily there are many resources, programs and even rehabilitation centers that are specifically designed to not only help you to know what to do but also to help your loved one to recover.

Addiction is a very real problem all over the world, and in the United States alone there are ever 23 million Americans who are struggling with some sort of addiction. Over 64 percent have had to deal with the emotional aspect of having someone close to them who was battling an addiction.

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…
