Music and an Awesome Trip to the Antique Store
Reading and researching your favorite albums has inspired me to keep up on my,
Tuesday: Music Post Day.
Two music posts counts for dedication, right?
In heavy rotation this week:
Left to right, top to bottom:
The Kills: Run Home Slow (Remixes')
White Lies: Ritual.
- This is my favorite album of the year (so far).
The White Lies are three English lads that make melancholy rock.
Think Joy Division, The Smiths, A-Ha, Portishead, The Cure.
Thom Yorke : The Erasure
Eurythmics: Greatest Hits.
The Beatles: Abbey Road
Pulp: His and Hers.
Pulp came with the 1990's brit pop movement along with Oasis, Blur, Massive Attack, Katie Moss, Tony Blair, Princess Di's death and Portishead.
I love Jarvis Cocker. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://cache.clean-cut.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/83_JarvisCocker_L281005.jpg&imgrefurl=http://clean-cut.org/tag/different-class/&usg=__u5zoKBf_OnL81KYqOR7UoKrgOSA=&h=184&w=300&sz=94&hl=en&start=0&sig2=sSxdTDXC2viqcuCBl5zNxg&zoom=1&tbnid=6SKVeiL0R1UY-M:&tbnh=103&tbnw=168&ei=JmuJTYL2G4v6sAODwcmYDA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Djarvis%2Bcocker%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us%26rlz%3D1I7ADSA_en%26biw%3D1419%26bih%3D735%26tbm%3Disch%26prmd%3Divnsuolfd&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=933&vpy=147&dur=118&hovh=147&hovw=240&tx=143&ty=88&oei=JmuJTYL2G4v6sAODwcmYDA&page=1&ndsp=35&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0
I went to Sandy Antique Mall today and found a few great things!
I've been looking for a side table for Freya's new bedroom. (Coming soon).

A Baby Shower
Saturday afternoon I co-hosted a shower.
(Thanks Aunt Elaine and Chelsea).
My cousin Sarah is having her first baby.
I went to Harmons for flowers Saturday morning and came home with these anemone's.
I quickly pushed them into pots.
There is no sun in Utah so they may be dead in a few days.
Happy Hair Cut
My sister Katie came over yesterday afternoon to give us all haircuts.
Kate convinced me to go dark in December and I have really not liked it.

Music is your only friend. - The Doors
My love of music comes from my dad.
He has requested many times for The Door's: When the Music Over, to be played at his funeral minus the line 'Cancel my subscription to the resurrection'.
I can't say how much I have enjoyed looking up and listening to your favorite albums and songs.
Music is a best friend of mine.
(Obviously I'm having spacing issues and I'm a lazy blogger and don't care to fix it).
I am going to commit Tuesdays to listing five albums I really like.
Above: from left to right and top to bottom.
U2: No Line On the Horizon
Cat Power: Jukebox
The Raconteurs: Consoler of the Lonley
Annie Lennox: Songs of Mass Destruction
Neko Case: The Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
Loud music plus chores and sewing while Oliver and Freya are at school = a good day.

Somethings Seem Springy
Spring banners are springy.
If you would like one leave a comment on this post listing five albums you really like.
I know at least twenty people read my blog so I expect to give away twenty banners.
Bubbles are springy and we go through gallons throughout the warmer months.
Also they said everybody gets made fun of, it's how you choose to react to it that matters.
Laney, she has an iron will.
Chris doesn't like to dig in the dirt and I love dirt.
