Link to 10 Things you may not know about Kris Kristofferson

Recently my husband and I saw Kris Kristofferson on Austin City Limits and it reminded me of how much I love that guy.  Not only is he an amazing songwriter, he is an all around bad ass.  "Sunday Morning Coming Down" is one of my top 5 favorite songs.  10 Things you may not know about Kris Kristofferson: 1.  Kris has been in Sports Illustrated.  In college (the fifties), he was quite the Rugby, Boxing and Track and Field star, which landed him a spot in Sports Illustrated "Faces in the Crowd." 2.  Kris was a Rhodes Scholar. 3.  Kris...

When I was little my mother would wake me up every morning by singing the lyrics to the 1st verse of this song by Donna Fargo.  Old country music stars make me happy.  I wonder what my husband Ben would do if i woke him up by singing something like this...  It would probably scare him, especially if I was wearing a dress like hers. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  We are going camping at Dismal Canyons in Alabama this weekend.  Lets hope I make it. Good morning' morning, hello sunshine Wake up sleepy head Why'd we move that bojangle...

My husband and I have an understanding.  If I ever meet Jack White, all bets are off.  Since it would only be fair, Ben is allowed a similar "celebrity crush."  His changes pretty often.  For years it was Claire Danes because he was a huge "My So Called Life" fan, but lately I believe he has changed it to Natalie Portman.  Maybe mine should be Natalie Portman... My Top Ten Favorite White Stripes tunes: "Hotel Yorba" White Blood Cells "Fell in Love with a Girl" White Blood Cells "We're Going to Be Friends" White Blood Cells "Jolene" Under Blackpool Lights (Dolly Parton remake) "My Doorbell" Get...

My husband and I were recently married (9.26.09) and my favorite wedding craft we made were our wedding CDs.  About a month into our relationship, Ben gave me a mixed cd of songs he thought I would like from bands that he loved.  It was his cute way of letting me into his world, one song at a time.  Ben still gives me mixed CDs for random occasions and I love everyone of them.  Because of these CDs I now listen to way better bands. I thought it would be perfect to make a mixed CD to give out as favors...
