Music and Books....sounds like a shopping section at Target

While circling around the field in the tractor today, doing a little hay-raking favor for my father, I heard a new song by Britney (Gimme More) and a new one by the Backstreet Boys (Inconsolable)! Did I miss the memo that all of my favorite teeny-bopper late 90's music was back in style? I seriously felt like whipping out all of my Britney and BB hits from back in the day and belting them out at the top of my lungs! I'm still not sure what I think of the new stuff, but I definitely felt young again this afternoon! Hooray!

Since I seem to be into discovering all this new music (completely on accident!), Jen introduced me to a song/dance called "How To Crank that Soulja Boy." Basically, she was in love with the dance that went with the song. During my drive home tonight, that song ended up being the #1 request of the day! WHAT!? I had never even HEARD of this person or song before Jen YouTubed it for me! I've embedded the video of the dance (and song) below...the superman part is my favorite (watch the guy on the right). I don't understand the guns in the middle...freaky.



Currently reading:
1. The Five Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman. Actually, Blake and I are reading this one together. It was sent to me as a birthday gift from Ryan and Regina (Thanks!). I actually learned about the five love languages as part of my college major, but it's interesting to learn about them more in-depth. Also very cool: discovering what languages Blake and I speak in, and learning how to practice each other's languages.

2. Eat. Pray. Love. by Elizabeth Gilbert. I'm only on page 29, but already I love it. A book of self discovery in every aspect. It lifts my spirits. Your life is never so bad that you can't do something about it! I love the quote that precedes her title page:

"Tell the truth, tell the truth, tell the truth"
-Sheryl Louise Moller

I am so happy that you included the book we sent you in your 'currently reading' section!!! I love that book.

also, did you see that I commented on your 8/31 blog entry? I was so proud that I found those for you...I don't know if they are the same as what you have though =) and I'm not sure how great of a website it is. Maybe if you know what they are called though you might be able to find them in another place.

Yes Reg! How did you ever manage to find those? I did peruse through them and they seem to be the same, but I don't understand why all of their animals seem to match either each other or the sofa or chair they are sitting on...or worse...they match BOTH! AH! One lead is better than none though!
