Today I am linking up with Andrea and particpating in Show and Tell Tuesdays. I know it says momfessionals and that probably means I am supposed to be a mom to participate. BUT I DON’T CARE. If I could be a mom, I’d be a mom. So there.
Today’s show and tell posting was to create a mix-tape detailing the different stages in your life. So here we go!
This was my jam in high school. I can remember playing this on a mix cd in my 4runner after school. I’d crank it up and drive. Nothing much has changed except for the car and the fact I use my phone instead of a cd player. I still love this song. (Watch for language…) It’s a guilty pleasure.
Eve 6’s song- Here’s To The Night was my senior class song. The perfect line: Here’s a toast to all those who hear me all too well. I take this to mean that we all have struggles in our lives, and for those 13 years of school my struggles were played out in front of basically the same 50 people. It’s symbolic of the times we spent together, and when I am feeling particularly sentimental, I’ll bust out this song.
You are probably thinking that I am certifiable listing a drum cadence on my mix tape. BUT this cadence brings back the thrills and chills of college, especially football season in Lubbock. I was part of the Goin’ Band my freshman year and every time we marched anywhere it was to this cadence. Later, watching the Goin’ Band march to the stadium and hearing this cadence gave me goosebumps. It still does!
I had the time of my life in college, including lots of late nights at The Library (love you Dad!). I listened to several of Miley’s songs during her Hannah Montana days (I’m a freak.) and if memory serves me correctly, I think my college roommate and our friends at the time threw me (and a friend of mine who had the same birthday) a Hannah Montana birthday party for my 21st. I particularly like this song because it is post-Disney Miley and pre-cut off all my hair and go blonde Miley.
Michael and I got engaged right before we left Lubbock and moved to Austin. This song sums it up. I have watched this song time after time. I just love it. It makes me smile.
And of course…our song.
The Last 4 years
I love me some Anna Kendrick. I love me some Pitch Perfect. Boom. This combines them both
Over the last 4 years (since moving to North Texas) I’ve really come into my faith and my religious beliefs. This song. This song speaks to me. Plus its got a great beat.
These next four songs are songs constantly on repeat right now. I love them. They speak to me. They inspire me to be more, to have more, to live more.
