TGIF VGNO! - And...Go Vote For Me!

Photobucket

Time For A Question

Since this is a holiday weekend I would like to know how you are going to celebrate Independence Day?

I have no idea what we are doing. I bought a pork loin that I'm going to marinade, then put on some Famous Dave's Rub and put on the grill with some hickory chips. But first I must go get a propane refill because when I marinaded a chuck roast earlier this week the tank went empty on me after I browned it off and set the grill to cook it on indirect heat. Drat. I had to finish it in the oven. It was good, but would have been so much better on the grill. So first thing on my list is getting that refill.

Anastasia want to go to our community's fireworks, so weather permitting we'll be out with the masses.

So, what are your 4th of July plans?

Oh, after you tell me your plans, be sure to stop over and vote for me in Lin's Duck and Wheel With String First Official Dork-Off Contest. All you need to do is click on the link, Duck and Wheel With String and post a comment that you are voting for me, Lola. Here is my no doubt award winning photo:
SO PLEASE, GO VOTE FOR ME, LOLA, BY LEAVING A COMMENTING SAYING THAT YOU VOTE FOR ME AT: Duck and Wheel With String.

Thank you!

Oh, that sounds really yummy--what time should I be over??

We aren't doing much--went to see "Hangover" last night for Col's 17th birthday. Laughed my @ss off! But today, I just want to relax! The next few weeks are crazy, so I want to just hang out.

Looks like you are in the lead this morning on the contest!

Hugs,

Thanks for the visit during the hop! I voted for you. I don't have a kindergarten pic but still have my report card. There were alot of red marks! I remember the quote perfectly from my teacher..."scatterbrained".
I have "White and Nerdy" on my playlist as a reality check. Wait I have two kids to remind me of that!
Thanks for the fun!

Anne said...

I hope you had a great holiday! We had fun, but the most important thing was time together.

Stacie said...

I so forgot about VGNO my mom was here and I was getting bickered at for being on the computer. Sigh... Your dinner sure sounds yummy!

Meghan said...

Hopping back to your blog from mine! Thanks for visiting! Hope you come back soon. I am totally voting for your Kindergarten pic. I think my Kindergarten mullet could probably top it, though!!

Stumbling in late from VGNO...

I totally voted for you, though you do have some serious competition going on over there. :)

Had I only known, I would have submitted my freakishly unhip childhood photos. I'd have been a shoo-in. Thank goodness I grew up to be hot. LOL

JulieChats said...
