fill in the blank friday... on saturday!

I've been seeing Fill-in-the-Blank Friday floating around in blogland a lot lately, and I want to play now :) Here are my answers for this weeks prompts:

1. One song that always takes me back to my youth is Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus. I had the biggest obsession with that song when I was a little kid, and my grandmom bought me his CD when I was about 4 years old. I swore I was going to marry him. And the funniest part is, I don't know a single other song by him... does he even have any other songs??

2. My first concert ever was Hanson, in 4th grade. I actually thought that they were girls, but I loved their music! I didn't find out that they were guys until a few months after the concert... oops!

3. If I could create my dream music festival I'd want these bands to be there: Bon Iver, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon, Iron & Wine, Lights, Agalloch and maybe a guest appearance from Michael Jackson.

4. The best make-out/"boot knocking" song ever is White Mystery by Minus the Bear... and also, When We Escape by Minus the Bear. Their music is just that kind of mood.

5. The best concert I've ever been to was definitely Kings of Leon. Amazing.

6. A memorable musical moment for me was when they played Revelry at the Kings of Leon concert. That song gives me goosebumps and makes me want to cry. I love it so much. It was even better live.

7. The song on my iPod that's getting the most play these days is Alejandro by Lady Gaga... you know that I love you boy, hot like Mexico... REJOICE! Alejandro, Alejandro... Ale-Ale-jandrooo...


  1. I loved the devil and god... i haven't listened to that album in FOREVER.

    oh man, achy breaky heart. i remember singing that song with my sisters allllll the time.

  2. ...were we the same person growing up?

    1. i used to listen to that same song over and over haha! i also wanted to learn how to line-dance. that phase didn't last very long. i'm not a big fan of country anymore (but oh, how that song brings me back! lol).
    2. HANSON WAS MY FIRST CONCERT TOO. how embarrassing. but i loved it. whatever.

    lol, it was fun learning about you!

  3. Hahahah, that Achey Breakey Heart song is literally the only song I know by him as well!

    Fun game! That Alejandro song is EVERYWHERE now! I swear it was stuck in my head allll day yesterday due to me hearing it so much on the radio.


  4. i love every single artist on your dream festival list - that would be such an incredible, perfect show!

  5. I just read your comment and had to tell you that I am so with you on the Repo show. Have you seen Southern Fried Stings? That show cracks me up. I know it is SO FAKE, but quite honestly I don't even care because it is so dang funny! I just watch for the entertainment factor. Have you smelled the new summer vanillas at Bath and Body Works? That Berry Vanilla smells amazing!

  6. the last photo on my blog was taken at a small, kind of secluded beach in corona del mar, in orange county. it's in the newport beach area and it's one of my favourite places in the world! come visit! ;)
