Time For Some Tunes!

He has a great version of Bob Marley's "Is This Love".  If you like this song, check that one out too!


Time For A Cocktail!

Ingredients:
2 oz Dry Gin
1 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Fresh Lemon juice
Instructions:
Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker / stirrer and pour into an unusually shaped glass. Add Crushed Ice. 

Did you know that Chartreuse is made with 130 herbal extracts? Sounds fantastic!  Cheers!

Time For Some Grimm!

I live in Portland, OR and if you're a Grimm viewer (NBC Friday nights 9:00pm) then you've been seeing a lot of my city.  It's filmed here!  So cool.  Yesterday they filmed in the little town of St. Johns that's within the city of Portland, and it just so happens to be my neighborhood :->  Here's a video taken by neighbor John David Van Beek of the afternoon's filming:


OH!  That looked like it hurt!  How do stunt people do it?  And the poor window of my favorite knick-knack store!  (Can't wait to see how it looks on t.v. :-> )

Time For A Party Game!

"I Would Like To Thank" 

If you're like me your mind can linger on the negative news items and lose some focus on the good.  There is good!  There are things to be thankful for!  Let's remind ourselves of that right now.  List 3 people/things/situations that you would like to thank.

1) I Would Like To Thank... my family for being some of the coolest, most supportive, people I know.
2) I Would Like To Thank... my car for starting every time I turn the key. 
3) I Would Like To Thank... my husband for working so hard for our family! 

Your turn! I look forward to reading what you're thankful for.  Leave them in the comments or add them to your blog today :->

Thank you for playing at our Virtual G.N.O.  Hope to see you next time!

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?
