How To Look Good In An Orange Housecoat - Time To Party At The Virtual Girls Night Out!

Ann Again... and again Virtual Girls Night Out!

*The Friday night blog party is on!  Time for the Virtual Girls Night Out.  It's a party and a blog hop in one!  Relax, put on your fuzzy slippers, make yourself a cocktail (Guest Bartender's tonight - One Martini At A Time!) and join the fun.  Leave a comment so we know you've stopped by.  We'll be sure to visit your blog and say 'Happy Virtual GNO!'*

Time For Some Tunes!

Phillip Phillips "Gone, Gone, Gone"



I have 3 favorite American Idols;  Kelly Clarkson, David Cook and Phillip Phillips.  (I don't know why David Cook didn't catch on after his win.  He really tried on the touring circuit but it just didn't click.  His cover of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" is fantastic!)  Do you still stick around for American Idol?  Or, have you left and moved toward The Voice?  


Time For A Cocktail!

Our bartenders tonight are Carri Brown and Jessica Torres, famously known as the creators of the terrific blog "One Martini At A Time".  The stars shined brightly when these two connected.  Their enthusiasm for a well crafted cocktail is obvious when see their delicious recipes and beautiful photos.  (I happen to think a well-lit martini is quite lovely.)  Enjoy!

I was drinking champagne and getting ready for my big night out. After putting on my (#1)__________ gown I noticed a huge stain on the front. I screamed at my assistant to find another dress immediately. In this town, at this time of day, all she could find last minute was a (#2)__________. 

I took what I could get and made the best of it. And it turns out I rocked it! I was on everybody's Best Dressed list. It probably had nothing to do with the fact that my date was (#3)_____________.

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.
