Am I At The Conference Fit Bloggin'?

Ann Again and again's Friday Night Party  -----  Virtual GNO

A fun blogger event in happening right here in Portland, OR and guess what?  I'm not there!  The conference FitBloggin' 13 is being held in The Nines hotel in downtown Portland and I didn't catch on soon enough that it would be just fine for me to attend.  The primary focus is on fitness, of course, but it also is providing info. on topics that I would love to learn more about and, most importantly, it's meeting other bloggers.  I'm such a dunce!  Well, I fretted about it for a while then I decided to drop in this afternoon so I could meet 2 bloggers that I've been chatting with.  I was so-o-o happy to meet Pepper from PepperScraps and Beeb of Super Coupon Girl.  (Did I take a picture?  ah-no.  I didn't do that either. GAH!)  Next year, we all said. Next year I'm there!  Enough of my complaining- time to start the Virtual Girls Night Out!

For our weekly Friday night blog hopping party all you need to make this party complete is to grab a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers!  I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  All You Do To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Link up your blog below and visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!"  Share the blog game/meme on your site to play along.  And, enter the Great Summer Giveaway right... over...

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.
