Assuming that 55 bonds/45 stock in that one account made your overall AA consistent with your target AA, if it were me I would jump back into the same mix but using VG funds. To the extent that your AA at the time varied from your target AA, I would buy bonds and stocks in proportions that would balance to your target AA.
In other words, use the event as an opportunity to opportunistically rebalance and then, whatever you do, don't look back.
