antifrezze leaking!!

Ok so I was butt *** cold this morning...I went down to heat up my car like 10mins. before I left to go to work....when I got back to my car I noticed a few drops of Antifrezze drippin from the right side of the car. I popped open the hood and couldnt find any leaks coming from my radiator hoses...I look around and couldnt find anything. Needless to say I was going to work and Im dressed in business attire so I couldnt really jack-up the car and take the drip pan off and really examine...
This is the part that gets me...I go to the gas station ...and just b4 I jump back in ....I notice NO drip....I drop my son off at daycare....NO drip.. Stop and get braekfast....NO drip.... Finally I get to work and let my car run in my parking spot for about 5mins idle ....No DRIP!!!

Could hoses harden due to cold weather and drip some fluid when in process of heating up?? I know this may not be the problem ....
Also is there a overflow hose that releases fluid from the coolant resivoir (I may have over filled it a few days ago)??

Thanks...

The drip is coming off the bottom "bumper" (just to the right of the license plate)on the drivers side!!! I went underthere and looked for any leaks from the 2 hoses that are on that side and they are secure and not leaking... So I went to the other side (passenger side) and tightened that hose also...And still the dripping appears...and only small drops also......I cant figure this out...Where the hell can it be dripping from...
Also Is this radiator a hard one to change if I have to?? If not what are the simplest directions on doing so...
Thanks.

Could be overfilled if you did it when it was cold. Liquid expands when it gets hot. Also, be careful not to overtighten the clamps. Sometimes they can distort the hose or worse, the outlet on the rad especially if the outlets are plastic like Volvo.
