We've been back from vacation for almost a week and oh boy, do we miss it.  So great to have a break, so wonderful to be able to drive a few hours and be in a completely different atmosphere.  LOVE Central Oregon!  Have you been able to have a break yet?  Well, if not, how about we have a little one now at the Virtual Girls Night Out?!

For our weekly Friday night blog 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! If you choose to leave your link to participate in a blog hop please do! I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Enjoy this post!  Or, if you would like, 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.  Also, I have a great Giveaway right... over...HERE.


Time For Some Tunes!

The Sunday's "Summertime"

I've been going through a late '80's / '90's alt music phase this Summer. The Smiths, The Psychedelic Furs, Cocteau Twins.  Ah, youth.  (For those of you who say "That's before my time" - aah, yeah.  How nice for you.)  What were you listening to in the '90's?


Time For A Cocktail!

Time For Some Knowledge!

For those of you who don't know how to create a "cent" symbol when you're writing about prices, etc. I've found out how to do it!  Well, I found out for Microsoft Windows.  (If you're an Apple user - time to search!).  Here's the formula: Push your Num Lock button.  While holding down the Alt key push the numbers 0162 then voila!  A little cent symbol appears. (Num Lock + Alt key + 0162 = ¢).

I hope you enjoy your Virtual GNO everyone! I think I'll try to find my Walkman and play some tapes.  My girls will be so-o-o-o confused ;-> . Thanks for stopping by.  Cheers!

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…
