When Ben (my husband) and I first started hanging out he tried to win my heart by giving me two cds.  He gave me his band's (Young Agent Jones) recent cd and a mixed cd.  It worked.  Also this cd introduced me to The Shins, which is now one of my favorite bands.  I'm sure my best friend Nikki got so sick of hearing these cds during our 30 minute commute to and from the W (Mississippi University for Women). My First Mixed Cd from...

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...
