All About MEme Monday--Sountrack of my Life

This week's "All About MEme Monday" (sponsored by Supah Mommy and Mommy Brain) asks us to think about the Soundtrack of Our Life, the Music that Moves MEme. If my life was a movie, what would the songs be???

I have been thinking long and hard about this post. My soundtrack has not only changed drastically since I became a mama but it also changes on a daily basis! I feel the following 14 songs (it was really hard to narrow it down and 5 would have been impossible) best sum up who I am and the life that I lead :) I hope you enjoy!

  1. Sunshine Day-by the Brady Bunch-I really try to be as upbeat as possible and those who know me, know that I have a HUGE cheesy side :) I love the Brady Bunch and all things fun and cheesy and so that is why this is the best song to start off my soundtrack :)
  2. Better Together-by Jack Johnson-I LOVE this song and I often say it is our family's theme song :) As individuals we are special but we are truly fabulous when we come together as a family unit! There is strength in numbers and we compliment each other really well :)
  3. You've got a Friend In Me--Toy Story-My friends are soooo important to me and I would do anything for them. I have the most wonderful friends and I am so lucky to have them in my life. I can't wait for "Girls Night In" on Thursday!!
  4. Waiting for Tonight-J LO-S works long hours and has a 90 minute commute each way....this song goes through my head during the "witching hours" when I can't WAIT for him to get HOME!!
  5. All of Me--Frank Sinatra-This is what I feel I give everyday. There are days I have nothing left to give and want to just lock myself in my room and take a nap :) But then Z will come over and say, "What's the matter momma?" and give me a hug. Then somehow I find the energy to keep on going.
  6. Everything-Michael Buble-I love this song too!!! My family means EVERYTHING to me! I would be lost without them.
  7. Vacation-The Go Go's-We love to go on VACATION!!! Whether it is the lake, a far away island or over is so much fun to leave the everyday and go and have some fun adventures.
  8. Oops, I did it Again-Brittany Spears-This song is for Z and his Potty Training!!! "Oops I peed (or pooped) my pants again momma" I can't wait for this song to be struck from the play list!!
  9. Crying-Roy Orbison-I am a big crier (my family had bets about how many times I would cry while planning my wedding....the people in the hundreds won). Crying is therapeutic for me and since I have become a mother, the tears flow even easier.
  10. Red Red Wine--UB40-This is what I like to sit down with after a good cry or a LONG day :) It has been months since I have been able to enjoy a glass of red wine but I am soooooo looking forward to it ;)
  11. The Chipmunk Song-Chipmunk Christmas Album-I love holidays!!! I celebrate any occasion I can get my hands on but Christmas is the biggest. I start shopping in the summer and love to decorate my house on Thanksgiving Day.
  12. No Strings Attached-N'Sync-This is Z's latest song of Independence. He is trying to shake off mommy's puppet strings and do everything on his own! I am so trying to encourage this with love and patience but there are times when it is so much easier, safer and or neater to help him!
  13. Wannabe--Spice Girls-(I just love this song)....There are so many things I "Wannabe" in life....a good wife, mother, friend, daughter, sister, teacher. I "wannabe" in good shape (can't wait to start running again), healthy and happy.
  14. We are Family-Sister Sledge-This is the perfect song to end my soundtrack. We are family....we have our highs and lows and our share of faults but through it all we love each other!

Wow! What an awesome list! You've included so many elements of yourself and your personality ... fun, fun! And so many of those songs are on my iPod, too :) Waiting for Tonight is totally stuck in my head right now - haven't heard that in forevah!

Boy do I hear ya on the "No Strings Attached" ... NHV is constantly saying, "Do it self!"

Thanks for playing along. Hope the doctor's appointment goes well ... you're 9 weeks ahead of me ... I'm a little envious and relieved :)

I now have Sunshine Day stuck in my head!
I'll have to check out that Jack Johnson song. Dh is a big fan, but I'm not familiar with his songs. Dh will be impressed that I can toss out the name of one of his songs.
What a fun list!
