Time To Play "7 Random Things" at Tonight's Virtual Girls Night Out!

Ann Again and again the original Virtual Girls Night Out

Booga Booga Booga!  It's almost Halloween, are you ready?  For The Harrison household let's go down the list:
  • Costumes?    Check
  • Decorations?   Check
  • Silly and or Scary Movie viewing?  Check
  • Candy?  
  • Candy?
  • Um, hello.  Candy?
No!  I haven't bought any candy yet.  I've learned my lesson from years past not to store bags of Halloween candy in our cupboards, even though the price was low and it would be more expensive the closer to October 31st.  You know why?  We always end up just wanting one, or two (or more) little bars of candy late at night, finish the bags then buy more candy later. Packing on the pounds because those darn 100 Grand bars are too hard to resist!  I'm going to distract myself from going to the store right now and immerse myself in our Friday night party, the original Virtual Girls Night Out!  Join me!

To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Enjoy this post! ;-> For our weekly Friday night blog party all you need to make this party complete is a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers! If you choose to participate with the meme and/or leave your blog link for guests to visit you that would be oh-so-nice! I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  Visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!"  Share the blog game/meme/question on your site to play along. 

Time For Some Tunes!

A DJ from Denmark walks into a bar.  Oh wait...  This isn't a joke.  Avicii really is a DJ from Denmark!

Avicii "Wake Me Up"

(This video looks like a strange Ralph Lauren ad.  This is my girls favorite song - as of today ;-> )

Time For A Cocktail!

Are you looking for costume inspiration?  Perhaps go as The Dude from The Big Lebowski - be sure and bring this drink with you!

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 Monogram

My Questions Answered By Chef Pati Jinich - Video

Rob and I have been focusing on finding foods and spices that will help us take some weight off.  I've been slightly obsessed with staying on my exercise track (on week 8 now :->) and hope to get rid of this jiggly belly that has become wa-a-a-ay too comfortable on my body.  The older you get the harder it is to lose weight.  What I would say to my 40 year old self - 'See that pouch starting?  Do your crunches and planks now!  7 years from now it's going to get ugly !' I've found that spices cumin, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and turmeric are noted to increase metabolism.  ( Yes please !)  After a good workout coconut water is more beneficial in regulating your electrolytes, and lower in calories, than sports drinks.  It also contains more potassium than other drinks which is an important component in helping to build muscle which, in turn, helps you burn more calories. And my most surprising discovery - eating avocados help burn belly fat! I&#
