Soundtrack Sunday :: Somewhere Over The Rainbow

People all over have been seeing rainbows the past few days.

I haven’t, despite the rainy and sunny cool fall weather.

I know I’ll get my rainbow someday…

It’s just the days between then and now that are going to hurt.



Soundtrack Saturday :: Only Hope

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these… but today seems like a good day to bring it back.

This is the song I walked down the aisle to at my wedding.  I’m not usually the cheesy chick-flick type, and theatrical ballads aren’t typically my thing.  And yet, something about this song is so beautiful and powerful.  It was the perfect choice for the soundtrack of my wedding – my life changing was from that of just a girl to that of somebody’s wife, best friend, life co-conspirator.

It seems so completely appropriate today.

I’m no longer just a girl, or a wife.

I’m going to be somebody’s mother. 

How beautiful is that?

Only Hope :: Switchfoot (vocals by Mandy Moore)

There’s a song that’s inside of my soul
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again
I’m awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
and pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now you’re my only hope

Sing to me the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing
and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope

I give You my destiny
I’m giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I’m giving it back

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I pray to be only yours
I know now you’re my only hope


Soundtrack Saturday :: When September Ends

Okay.  I’m up.  The September cycle is officially over.

Let’s get this October baby-making-show on the road.



Soundtrack Saturday :: Bleeding Love

Yeah.  I know it’s obvious, but this is the kind of day I’m having.

The bleeding kind.

Once again… Ugh.


Soundtrack Saturday :: Old Time Rock n’ Roll

Father’s Day is tomorrow, and for some reason, this song always makes me think of my dad.  It’s fun and lighthearted, but it has a message, just like my old man.

Maybe it’s just the time frame during which this song was popular that makes me remember sitting on my dad’s lap watching the Tigers play (and in those days, they played well!).  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Bob Seger is a Michigan institution.  Maybe it’s just one of those subconscious connections that I’ll never fully understand, but makes me happy nonetheless.

I only wish that I could celebrate my husband this Father’s Day; with some doing however, I have a good feeling that next year will be a much bigger cause for celebration for our little family.

Wherever you are, however you celebrate, and whatever your relationship with your own father or kids, I hope you have a splendid Father’s Day weekend.


Soundtrack Saturday :: Good Riddance

When you graduated from high school, were you flooded with that feeling of overwhelming love and nostalgia coupled with the terrifying reality of impending freedom?

And did you deal with said feelings by starting a way-too-serious-way-too-fast summer fling with a boy you had known your whole life but had never thought about dating before the panic of leaving the nest set in?

And did said relationship burn white-hot for two whole months and end promptly the moment you moved your mini-fridge into your dorm room?

Come on… I can’t be the only one.

Soundtrack Saturday :: Steal My Sunshine

I know this song is ridiculous–and so 1999–but I heard it on the radio yesterday after a really long day of working a thankless job alongside my horrid Aunt Flo, and it made me smile.

Sometimes I guess that’s all that matters.

Smile!  It’s Saturday!  🙂


Soundtrack Saturday :: It’s the End of the World As We Know It

I’m not even posting the lyrics to this one, I just posted it for fun.  Some rich quack out there has determined that today is when the world will end, so get thee to a bomb shelter folks!  The raptor cometh!

…Just remember, they can open door handles, but not door knobs.  Good luck and God speed!


Soundtrack Saturday :: The Middle

Sometimes you just hear the right song at the right moment, and it really resonates with what you’re going through in life.  It seems like this happens to me on a regular basis… Maybe I’m just highly self-centered, or maybe I’m just hearing what I need to to get by, but either way, I am so thankful for those golden songs that play when I need them most.
