19 Favorite Albums of 2007

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Rock N Roll!That time of year is coming back around again where everyone starts their top 10 lists of whatever and no one really cares too much. But that’s alright. I threw together a list of my top 10 albums of 2007, and figured that there was too much good stuff to come out this year that I couldn’t just limit it to ten. So here’s my top 19 albums of the year. (Why 19 and not an easy number like 20 you ask? Well that’s none of your business. OK, actually, I made a mistake and realized that Lily Allen’s "Alright Still" actually came out in 2006. Oh well.) Although I might not be as well versed in EVERY single album that came out this year, but these are the ones that I dug a lot. I’m sure there are going to be lots of albums from this year I’m going to discover next year, but that’s life. And so, with no further ado, here’s my list (complete with videos!)

NEW! Galleries!!!

Sunday, December 16th, 2007

So over the past few days, I’ve been installing a new feature on the blog – a Gallery section! Marylynn was ready to strangle me when she tried to post the pictures of Cricket’s Barbies, that I had to come up with an easier solution for adding photos. I don’t know if in the end this is actually “easier”, but it is a whole lot cooler.

I had over 100 pics from Cricket’s 4th birthday party and I whittled them down to 50 and added captions for each one. This new addition of “Galleries” is a lot slicker than how I’ve been previously adding photos, and the best part is, you can leave comments for individual pictures! How cool is that?

I’ll post a blog entry every time I add a new gallery, just so you know, but there’s also a little thing I added in the sidebar to the right, displaying the last few pictures posted. As you can probably see, it’s causing some problems with the layout of the page, but I’ll have to work on it in the future. I just think it’s way overdue to just get SOMETHING fresh on this blog!

So click here to see the galleries!

Happy 4th Birthday Cricket!!

Monday, December 10th, 2007

I think this post is mostly for me. I’m starting to realize that birthdays for your children are really for the parents. I’ve been thinking back today on Cricket’s life and it’s been a crazy one but fun (I think). Most of the time I feel exactly the same when I was in High School. I still have pimples and I haven’t really matured too much since then to now but I do have a 4 year old daughter. I’m just in awe that she is my daughter. I’m so lucky to have her ( that’s not including the high pitch screaming and rolling of eyes at me). Even on my really rough days with Cricket she is still one of my great loves.

Anywho, I hope your not to uncomfortable with all these emotions. When Cricket was just born, Tyler made a “Cricket Movie”. I love the movie (especially because I’m in it like 90% of it) jk. I guess I’m just reminiscing.

What kind of children am I raising?

Current Mood:Alarmed emoticon Alarmed

So, my mom bought Cricket two Barbies for her birthday and right away she tied them to the bungee cord that was also tied up to her bike. Then takes off on her bike with the Barbies dragging. If you think that’s bad then she would also say,” Oh no all my legs are broken!!” pretending the Barbies were saying that. Oh, and Buster says that “F” word at house too. Instead of the “Tr” in truck, he’ll use a “F” instead. It’s pretty messed up here. For anyone that wants me to babysit their children, think again. They might be torturing toys and saying the “F” bomb!
