What Would You Say? Time For The Virtual Girls Night Out!


You've reached the Friday night blog party where all you need to make this party complete is a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers!  This Virtual Girls Night Out is dedicated to a dear pal that I met through blogging.  She's going through major stress from her teenage daughter.  This mom needs a break!  (And caffeine ;->)  Ms. Martha, this party's for you!

(*The Virtual GNO began in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  Leave a comment to let us know you stopped by! *)

Time For Support!

Alright ladies, or maybe there are gentlemen who partake in the Virtual GNO, I don't know.  People?  Should I say 'people'?  How about parents?  Yep, I'm going with parents because what I would like is for those that have been in a stressful situation with their young teen to share some encouragement with our dear Martha.  Let's support one another in this parenting job and give a virtual hug with our words.

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.

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.
