Happy almost hump day (I gotta get myself through the week somehow right??) Friends it’s so cold here in Utah and the inversion has us trapped in a soupy, foggy, smoggy mess! I bet it’s 40 degrees at the ski resorts, up above the goop.
So today my clothing required a little bit of attitude: it’s Tuesday, my hardest day, and I can’t see the sun, it’s not snowing, so what the heck??
In continuing my thankful thrifty closet shopping, I reached for a fun t shirt-my super attitude/edgy Guns N Roses (yes I’m wearing a t shirt in the winter) but I topped it with my long super long gray cardigan (Target), my destroyed jeans (Express) and my snakeskin boots (also Target). It’s so fun to shop my closet and find new ways to wear things I already have. Who knew a t shirt in winter could be so fun (I just can’t spend much time outside is all) LOL
I’m singing “Welcome to the Jungle” as I pull up to work. That works right ??? Tuesday you are gonna do me in one day!
So on my hour and a half commute tonight, I decided I DON’T have enough Guns n Roses songs on my iPhone…LOL
That got me thinking and coincidentally I wore my GnR outfit today 🙂
I have ring tones for all my children…my oldest son Elliot-his ring tone is Back in Black -ACDC because it reminds me of when he was in high school and practice his electric guitar down in his room. I loved hearing him learn some tunes. It was especially fun when I knew the songs and got to start to sing along. I sang to Heart: Barracuda and G&R: Sweet Child o’ Mine. That brings back happy memories (Elliot is married, has kids of his own now, and enjoys other hobbies like destroying people in racquetball. Elliot’s favorite music seems to be alternative.
My oldest daughter Callie; her ring tone is G&R Sweet Child o’ Mine….for some reason it’s always made me think of her. I looked up the year of Guns n Roses album when that song was released and it was the year Callie was born, so I love this song for her (she’s kind of a rebel like me), and she has the prettiest eyes. Callie’s always been fond of country music, don’t know where she got that 😉
My son Connor has a wide range of music he likes, but when he was a teenager worked real hard to help me develop an “interest” in rap music. I just didn’t like it, but would listen with him in the car. He created a special CD for me, just certain rap songs he thought I would like, and actually I did. Connor’s ring tone is Tupac- Dear Mama.
McKenna is my youngest (I do have a younger son, Clayton; he died at birth so we haven’t had a chance to bond over music yet in this life and I don’t know if it will be important to me in the next, so there ya go) living child and she moved from favorite artist to favorite artist with Justin Bieber and David Archuleta near the beginning and Taylor Swift dominating almost all other areas, so Taylor Swift – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together-puts a smile on my face.
So there you go, a description of my (adult) children’s ring tones and my thought process while driving home from work tonight in bumper to bumper traffic trying to find the best songs on my iPhone while not taking my eyes off the car in front of me…it was tricky my friends! In closing, Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, and Sweet Child o’ Mine are my favorite Guns N Roses songs….here is my outfit letting everyone know.
