Virtual Girl's Night Out - Summer Vacation Edition

It's Friday and it's Time to Party!! This weekend I actually have an internet connection, so I get to join in the fun! If you're unfamiliar with the VGNO - where have you been?!

The lovely Ann from 'Ann Again and Again' is the hostess with the mostest with her weekly Virtual Girls Night Out - Come join the fun (boys are welcome, too)! There's great music and drinks, fun party games, and even a Mr. Linky to add your blog for VGNO visits! Ann knows how to throw a great party! :)

In lieu of music this week, I'm opting to re-post a video that Farrah of Wife and Mom of 3 had posted on her blog today...because it's hilarious! What not to do this summer:



The drink of the night is "Supermodel" - Ann has the recipe posted and I've made one special just for you - with a slight modification so it can be in a festive glass with ice and garnish:

What's a party without some excellent food?


Let's go simple with Bake and Take BBQ Chicken - perfect for a beach buffet or picnic:
Interested in some Mixed Greens with Apricots and Champagne Vinaigrette?
Or how about how about we go 'fancy'...Cheese Crisps with Creme Fraiche and Caviar:
Or maybe you'd like to try Mini Puffs with Goat Cheese and Herbs:
Or how about CherryPomegranite:
If you want something 'light', how about Nectarine Berry Salad:

Time For A Question

The question Ann has for us this week is: "Has anyone ever told you you looked like someone famous?" My mom told me once when I had Glamour Shots done that I looked like Donna Mills. I've had other people more recently tell me (now that I flat-iron my hair) that I look like Lisa Kudrow. I take both as a huge compliment! :) How about you? Anyone ever tell you that you look like anyone famous or semi-famous or not-so-famous?



And Look! Tonight Ann's having a Giveaway!

Julie from Skin Free Skincare Products is going to share one $30 Gift Certificate with one lucky VGNO guest this week! Ann has tried their products and highly recommends them - she plans to give a full review next week on her review site, Ann Again... and again Reviews

For a chance to win, hop on over to Ann's and find out what you need to do to enter - you don't even have to jump through major hoops!


Ready to join the fun? Then go over to Ann's to join the Virtual GNO and check out all the other cool bloggers participating in this very special event. Anyone can join in the fun... Sign Mr. Linky and visit those that sign-in! Go blog-hopping! And most importantly, Have Fun! Well? What are you waiting for? :)

I loved the swimming pool bloopers! And those goat cheese mini puffs look truly yummy!

JAN'S PLACE said...

You must of been cooking all day... as everything looks so yummy!

Yes I do see some Lisa Kudrow!

Happy VGNO, and glad you are back online!

Casey said...

I can see the Lisa Kudrow thing, that's a nice compliment! When I was really thin, people used to mistake me for Fiona Apple. She's a little crackwhoreish for my taste though, I was never that skinny.

Jamie just came in here to check on me since I kept saying "OW!!" out loud when I was watching the bloopers video.

blueviolet said...

I just got done writing my VGNO post too only mine doesn't have that perfectly sleep-inducing beach scene at the top. Boy, does that ever make me want to get away on vacation!!!

Happy VGNO, my dear friend!

Jenners said...

Ok... you are totally making me hungry and thirsty!!!

And I love those celebrity lookalike things! Though I would say Lisa Kudrow based on your profile photo.

I did one of these a while back and one of my matches was an old man from Lithuania!!!! ACK!

Native American Momma said...

That video was awesome!
Happy VGNO!
Oh, I am so glad dinner is already made because your page always makes me hungry!

Kekibird said...

Totally see the Lisa Kudrow thing too! And it is probably the straitened hair.

Love the nectarine salad with berries. Do you deliver??

Does anyone else get a kick out of America's Funniest Home Videos? We love to watch them. That's what that blooper reel reminded me of.

Jaime said...

why does the food on your blog always look better than what i'm eating for dinner?

Martha said...

Thanks for providing all the yummy food! It seemed to be a lacking part of the party until I got to you! Come on over for some stuffed jalapenos and a cold one :-)

Just_Aimee said...

Golfersmom said...

Your food looks yummy!! Hope their are some leftovers for me since I am late to the party tonight. Had to take gofergirl to play golf tonight. They play with glow balls so they play at night. Oh well she is 8 so I have a few more years of taking her to the course.

Hope you have a great VGNO

Those bloopers are a riot - yet somewhat scary. I love Lisa Kudrow - Friends is one of my fav. shows.

Somehow, "Time to party!" and "I have an Internet connection" don't seem to belong together.

sheila said...

I'd love some mixed greens with apricot and champagne vinaigrette. Although you can hold the greens, the apricot, and the vinegar parts.
