Oh my goodness my favorite day of the work week, Friday is upon us! I never really understood how much joy can be packed into one day (until it arrives and I’m almost giddy!) Happy end of the week, beginning of the weekend! Boom!
Another thing I realized made me happy is color. I don’t know if that sounds strange? Today I wore this vibrant red/blue/black patterned skirt from (H&M) and an (older) pink tee (Express)-paired with blue sandals (Nordstrom Rack), red bag (JCPenney) and bauble bright blue earrings (Sugarfix-Target-the bomb). I also had a red moto jacket this morning cause it was a wee bit chilly but not now. I realized that the shade of red in my bag and skirt has undertones of blue (that’s really what makes the blue work) and as I was sitting in the car, trapped on the freeway, I was mesmerized the beautiful colors. It’s almost as if I’m viewing beautiful spring flowers, that’s the only way I can describe it. Of course the sun is shining too and I singing at the top of my lungs to “Greatest Showman” soundtrack, so I’m pretty much nestling in the clouds with joy even though I’m trapped on the freeway going 10mph…so ironic right?? (This was my thought process-does this color make me happy?? I think so)
Those of you that wonder about my choice of music, YES I ATTENDED ANOTHER MOVIE LAST NIGHT…this is the third movie since last Saturday, and I feel like my MoviePass purchase was a good decision LOL!
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.
