it's simply okay that i like oldies.

today's post is a mish-mash {if you will} of three link-ups: one that i participate in as often as i remember to can & two that i've never participated in before.

are you ready? here we go.



The Simple Things

here are the simple things i appreciated this week:

sunday funday with a group of really great friends.
rain. although it ruined some of our fun, we needed it.
$1 containers of strawberries at target {my store recently added produce & meats}.
watching phineas & ferb with my kids.
cooking dinner with the hubby.
puppy breath.
having two {maybe three} bags of clothes & other stuff to donate.
the cooler temps.
knowing that pumpkin spice lattes are just a few weeks away from being back in starbucks stores.
hearing my children laugh.

what simple things are you appreciative for this week?
link up with jesslyn amber.



Its Ok Thursdays

it's OKAY...

that i really enjoy 90210 reruns {even the corny high school episodes}.
that - even though i'm NOT into football - i'm going to my husband's fantasy league draft this weekend {i'm in it for the food & beer, people!}.
that my house is not spic & span clean.
that i stalk fedex's tracking site daily because i'm way too excited about receiving my erin condren life planner {i just checked & it's on the truck for delivery...today!!}.
to have a bazillion things/ideas that need to be blogged about {i'll get around to blogging about it all at some point}.
to feel nervous about boarding my dogs this weekend {it's their first time being boarded. it's only for one night, but still. mama's nervous.}.
to get excited when i find bags of smarties in the $1 section of target {seriously, y'all, i may need a smarties intervention soon}.
that the hubs & i have to budget every last cent we have {such is life on a single-income when your wife -that's me - decides to go to grad school full-time}.
to be excited about going to great wolf lodge {really, i think i'm more excited than my kids are. or, maybe it's because i know the outlets aren't far from g.w.l.}.
that the laundry isn't put away...at least it's all washed & folded!

it's okay...go link up with neely & amber!



last, but certainly not least, i'm linking up with meghan at the perfect compilation tape for top 5 thursdays.

today's topic? 
top 5 favorite oldies.

here we go {in no particular order}:


 "crazy love" by van morrison
this isn't the original version, but this ray charles/van morrison combo is straight up awesome.



"suspicious minds" by elvis
live in hawaii, too? hell yeah. {did you know i was born in hawaii? well, i was.}



"ring of fire" by johnny cash
need i say more?



"two tickets to paradise" by eddie money
i'd like two tickets, please.



"take the money and run" by steve miller band
a recent version of a fun song



my taste in music is all. over. the. place.

Haha! My life planner came yesterday and I psycho-stalked FedEx from the minute I was emailed that it shipped. Worth the wait though, for sure.

I found you through Meghan's Top 5 Oldie's List and I LOVE Johnny Cash (I've always wanted to have a black dog and name him Cash after the Man in Black!) & Elvis :)

I also love watching old re-runs of 90210 - I love Dylan McKay forever!

Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine?! You must be a Texas girl! I live in Wichita Falls :)

Whew! Way to participate in a ton of link-ups!

I totally LOVE the old 90210 episodes - especially the high school ones:) And I definitely attend football drafts for the very same reason...

And Elvis. Sigh. Excellent choice!

My DH and I need to get on the budget train and fast! I admire you and yours for being able to make it work and stick to it, we have financial goals and that we can't meet unless we make a plan and follow it through.
