For Andi

This is for Andi's Birthday!  Sweet Sixteen Love!

Lose Yourself
by Eminem

I went back and forth on which song to choose for Andi from Eminem's songbook. There were several I had chosen, but they just weren't right. I chose this one for Andi because of all of Eminem's song this is more of Andi's amazing personality. She is sweet, beautiful, and can be down-right bad-ass, and is strong in her convictions.

by Finley Quaye

At a family reunion I was looking for some music and decided to confiscate Andi's phone and I found this song. I loved it. So we played it many, many times on our little road trip up to Grandpa's and back. "I am smiling, I think of you." I love you kid.

by 30 Seconds to Mars

I grin when I think of this song because I just had to show this video to her. She is the one who turned me onto OTH and how cool Haley was. I in turn introduced her to Supernatural and the awesomeness that is Dean. This is an incredibly great song, but I probably wouldn't have found it if it weren't for my obsession of all things Daley. Thanks Andi. :D

Danny's Song
by Loggins and Messina

I always loved this song, and Andi really loves this song. Mainly because it reminds her of our parents. When she says that I think of her because Andi is so sweet, that I hope her life is just full of incredible people and blessings.

Guilty Pleasure

by Cobra Starship

The last song had me stumped for a long time, but I finally chose this song. For one it is fun, and Andi is a lot of fun to be with. Two, when we went to the Fall Out Boy concert Cobra Starship was playing before them and when this song came on she knew all the moves and was dancing to them. I was so surprised and it was a joy to watch her be cute.

I love you baby girl. I hope you have an incredible birthday and a blessed year!

For My Mom

This was my Top 5 Shower Re-Cap yesterday in honor of my incredible mother's birthday!

Civil War

by Guns n Roses

This coundown is dedicated to my mother. This is her favorite song, or at least one of them. The Gunners were always her favorite and she has deep love for Slash.

I'll never forget that when she was pregnant with my baby sister she would be cleaning and this was the first song in her playlist. After she was born my baby sister when she heard this song or the vaccum sweeper she would drop wherever she was and fall asleep.


by Brooks & Dunn

It was between this song and 'Amazing Grace' by Chris Tomlin, but this song reminds me more of my mother than the other one did. She's a wise woman and I know that others need to know that wisdom. Even me at times.


by Amy Castle

When I first heard this song I had to play it for my mother because it reminded me so much of her. She is always doing wonderful silly things and I love her so much for it. When I say I was blessed with a great mom, I'm not kidding at all.

Moon River

by Audrey Hepburn

My mother picked this song for me and so I picked this one of her too. If it weren't for my mother's love of old movies and anything in techni-color I would not adore so many great movies, including this one. I love watching old movies with her and this song always brings a smile to my face.

Take Me Home, Country Roads

by John Denver

You should all know what a sap I am by now, so it is no surprise this song can make me cry. It is not my mother's favorite John Denver song, but this one reminds me of her because when I think of home I think of her and my dad. So even though this song may be about West Virginia when I hear it I see them.

Happy Birthday my beloved momma!
