Is it really Friday already?  I'm not sure why but this week flew by.  How was it for you?  My sister and I are heading up to Federal Way, WA to get my dad's house packed up and get him ready to move closer to his family in Dundee, OR.  He'll only be a 50 minute drive from us now :->  (Little more of the story here: "This Should Be Interesting".)  We're also getting into Halloween gear here at the Harrison house.  We're looking for some scary movies to watch; some for the kids, some for the adults.  Have any suggestions?  Any favorites? Please leave in the comments below.  And let's get our Virtual Girls Night Out going! :->

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!

Time For A Question!

Halloween is weeks away and my daughters are so excited.  My youngest, Lily, has said that this is her favorite holiday.  (More than Christmas?  Wow.) We're pretty tame when it comes to scary movies, incredibly tame actually.  Scary movies just aren't my thing but I have a brother-in-law that absolutely loves them and is always recommending movies for us to see.  The last scary movie we saw was The Ring.  Egads!  Not that I'm in the mood to see another movie that will have me screaming and hiding my eyes but... do you have a favorite scary movie to recommend?  Please share in the comments.



Thanks for hangin' out at our weekly Virtual Girls Night Out.  See you next Friday!

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.

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…
