Another VGNO--party Blog style

Photobucket

Gee, I wonder how many of my family blog followers I have lost with all this talk of blog parties and Gene Simmons? What started as a little family blog to update the family as to what is going on in our neck of the world has become Mommy's outlet...sorry guys. I will still mail you Christmas cards, OK?

Tomorrow morning I will be getting up and going to see The Dead with my sister. We will camp and play like we are young again. All the living members will be there so I am quite pleased to be able to see them again, who knows it could be the last time. I promise I will not get any piercings this time!

This week at Ann's she is talking sweets. This is perfect because my cocktail tonight in honor of VGNO looks delish! If I was not dreaming of summer time I might have one in real life but alas only a virtual drink tonight.

There's nothing like a Cherry Garcia Cocktail.

What you need:

1. A blender, food processor, or a martini shaker
2. A half a cup of white Irish Cream
3. 2-3 spoonfuls of Cherry Garcia
4. Half a shot of Smirnoff Black Cherry vodka

Pulse the blender until you can liquify the ice cream. Pour ice cream into martini glasses and enjoy. The chocolate bits will fall to the bottom, but you can use a spoon to eat them.

Happy weekend Ladies!

I got the giggles with your beginning... Wondering if you lost family followers. Yeah, my family totally doesn't get VGNO night. Oh well...

Have a great time at the Dead Concert tomorrow! I've got to try your Cherry Garcia Cocktail. It must be delicious cause I love Irish Cream and Cherry Garcia!

Happy VGNO!

Back in 7th grade I won 2 front row tickets to a KISS concert. I loved them. I thought their music was really good. Anyway, neither of my sisters would take me, nor my dad. So I ended up giving them to some boy in my class. He had a blast!!! What a bummer.

HEY! That is MY martini glass! Now I just need the Cherry Garcia to put in it!
You crack me up - another Dead concert. I have seen some of the original members - interesting how they physcially resemble their band name ;)
No piercings, but how about some tats? Can't wait to read about the concert.
