Madonna State Of Mind At The Virtual Girls Night Out

Ann Again... and again 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!  

Going through channels recently I came upon the movie Desperately Seeking Susan.  I don't even remember how many times I went to the theater to see this.  I was slightly obsessed.  It wasn't so much that I wanted the "Madonna look" that was so popular, it was her casual, tough attitude I loved.  New York looked so cool!  I wanted to be there (and I wanted Aidan Quinn to show me around on that little scooter ;-> ).  4 years later I went to NYC and looked for that crazy Magic Club but I couldn't find it.  I did find Bleecker Street Cinema though.  (I read it closed in 1991. Sad.)  Let's have a trip down memory lane for this weeks Virtual GNO!

Time For Some Tunes!

Madonna "Into The Groove"

Love it!

Time For A Cocktail!


Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients:4 oz orange juice
2 oz tequila
1/2 oz grenadine
orange slice for garnish
maraschino cherry for garnish
Preparation:Pour the tequila and the orange juice into a highball glass with ice cubes.  Stir.  Slowly pour the grenadine around the inside edge of the glass, it will sink and slowly rise to mix with the other ingredients naturally.  Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.rup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. 


This was the first drink I ordered when I was 21.  Yes, because Madonna ordered it in Desperately Seeking Susan.  Like I said, I was slightly obsessed!  Cheers!


Time For A Question!

Did you have a movie that you were slightly obsessed with?  What was it?  How did you show your enthusiasm?


Thanks for hanging out at the Virtual Girls Night Out!  See you next Friday!  (Leave a comment, with your blog link, so we know you stopped by.  We'll visit your blog and say "Happy VGNO!")

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. 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? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
