Virtual Girl’s Night Out – Smelling the Roses Edition

It’s Friday and it’s Time to Party!! 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 since Mr. Linky has been on the fritz, be sure to add your link to the comments section so everyone can pay you a visit! Ann knows how to throw a great party! ๐Ÿ™‚

Welcome to my little corner of the world – I won’t be around this evening, we’re actually going out to dinner to celebrate a belated Mother’s Day, early Father’s Day and to celebrate the Princess Nagger’s exciting graduation from Kindergarten. But please, make yourselves at home, I’ve left you some treats to enjoy and if it’s not too late when we get home, I’ll stop by…otherwise, I’ll be by in the morning with brunch or virtual hangover remedies for all the partying that will be going on tonight! ๐Ÿ™‚

How about some music? Remember Aqua with their ‘I’m a Barbie Girl’ song? No? Well here’s an interesting song called ‘Roses are Red’ – I thought it quite appropriate since this is the ‘Smelling the Roses Edition’ of the VGNO:


Time For A Cocktail!

The drink of the night is Coming Up Roses – Ann has the recipe posted and I’ve made one special just for you:

What’s a party without some yummy food?

How about some Herb Crab Salad:

Or maybe some Smoked Salmon Stuffed Eggs:
Or how about some Lemon Watermelon Bites:
And for the Salad Lovers out there, a Sweet and Tart Salad:
Oh, and of course we need something chocolate…how about a Chocolate Cherry Stacked Cake:

Ann Has a Question!

“Do you have a favorite flower?”

I actually have several favorites – my absolute favorite is the Calla Lily – I think they’re so elegant and sleek. But I also love tulips in the spring, and roses anytime…so really, I’m not all that hard to please! ๐Ÿ˜‰

You have got to check out Ann’s rose she has posted – it’s huge!!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.
