Mad About Mad Men

Have you seen it? I've been on a Mad Men binge lately. I've been catching up on Season 1, with full episodes online at ctv.ca!
I am so loving this show! Like I need another show

Summertime Tunes

There is nothing I love more than a great summer playlist. I don't always put the most current or popular on my list but just the songs that make me happy. I'm kind of a country girl come summer. It's funny because I'm a rocker and I do love a little jazz too! Really, I love all music! So, here it is- the songs I'm listening to this summer!

Petra Haden- Don't stop Believin'
Weezer- Troublemaker
Depeche Mode- Just Can't Get Enough
Billy Talent- Rusted from the Rain
Jack Ingram- Barefoot & Crazy
Black Eyed Peas- I Gotta Feeling
Rascall Flatts- Summer Nights
Toby Keith- God Love Her
Pitbull- I know You Want Me
Stereos- Summer Girl
Kenny Chesney- Out Last Night
Billy Currington- People Are Crazy
Johnny Cash- Ring of Fire (for my Mags!)
ACDC- TNT, She Got the Jack (for my boy and M)
Loretta Lynn (I warned you!)- You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man, Don't Come Home a Drinkin', Mad Mrs. Leroy Brown (and the list goes on!)
Tragically Hip- Love is a First
Kings of Leon- Crawl
Lady GaGa- Just Dance
Johnny Reid- Darlin'
Ray LaMontagne- You Are the Best Thing
Cat Power- Naked, If I Want To

So grab yourself an italian soda (with a little Grey Goose?) and enjoy.
Happy listening- if you dare!

Star Wars + Snack

It's a date night for Gav and I. Yep. Star Wars + snacks! I'm enjoying a cold Bud Light Lime and cracked black pepper popcorn. Gavin is munching down some cold white milk and Doritos! Guess what is on tv? Star Wars! It's perfect!

Summer Reading List

So here it is... my summer reading list. Crazy to be so late but it really has been one busy summer so far. I love to read! It's a great way to get lost in the summertime. So here's the rundown... The Flying Troutman's is a great, easy read. The characters are so well written that you really do feel like you know them. It's kind of a dark comedy but good god I thought it was fantastic! That nights on air book was a gift from Shawn. Highly recommended by some but not a favourite of mine. The Thirteenth Tale was hard to get into after the Troutman's but oh my! What a great book! I could barely put it down. Very different but a great story. In the mix, I've been totally addicted to decorating magazines. I am loving these two because they are Canadian! The best for last- I bought 3 copies of this book- The Hundred! Two I bought for friends and one for myself. What a fabulous guide to all the stylish things one should own. Dangerous for a shopaholic like myself! I have loved flipping through this book time and time again. I might add, I even own a few of the items. LOVE this book! Finally, I am just beginning the newest Wally Lamb. This guy never lets me down and I am in need of at least one more great read before fall. I'll let ya know what I think but I'm counting on a sure thing!

Here I am!

Just in case you were wondering... I'm still around! I know it's been awhile but just wait... I am planning a blogging extravaganza real soon. Stay tuned.
