    Hi! That's cool that you wrote a song that earns royalty checks - what genre of music was it? Also, what's your favorite dessert?

    There are my furbabies! and my goofy BF...I have zero pictures of Koda without the BF in them haha they are quite a pair!

    My favorite beer is Shock Top on tap. It not as easy to find so my alternative is Blue Moon. I'll drink just about anything, but those are my faves!

    I can't see the pictures of the furbabies! :(

    Also, am I the only person on the planet who hates Blue Moon?!


  • The song that i wrote is recorded as an alternative rock song. That is not how it was originally written, but I was really happy with the way that it turned out. 

    Beth- I know plenty that don't like Blue Moon. I'm usually in the minority in my group because I am not a fan of dark beer.

    I can see the pictures now - your furbabies are adorable!


  • Welcome!  What is your favorite thing to bake?  How old are the kiddos?  So interesting that you met your BF (again) at the reunion.  Did you date then?

    Cheesecakes and cupcakes!

    My kids are 15, 11 and 8...oldest and youngest are girls and there's a boy in the middle. Before you do the math (i know you will!) My oldest is adopted. I started young but not THAT young!

    The BF and I started dating long distance after the reunion. He was living in South Carolina and I was in Texas at the time. We've been together ever since~
  • Hi! Super-cute furbabies! I second the request for your favorite things to bake. So cool that you write music; do you play any instruments (I am musically challenged, but I am guessing you know all the notation and stuff if you write songs)?
  • Ha!  I did do the math right away, but didn't judge...my family (other than me) has had kiddos early and often.  :)

    Awesome that you adopted.  If you don't mind sharing, what is the back-story behind that?  If you do or want to keep that private, no worries.

  • Hi Dixie 
    Welcome!  What cute puppies!

    Anniversary

  • Amapola, I actually have a degree in music theory. So, yes, I do know all the notes and notations and play piano.
  • HI and welcome, Dixie! It's adorable that your pup and your BF are inseparable. :) 

    @bethsmiles, you don't like Blue Moon??? I'm not sure we can still be friends... Although, I haven't had one in weeks. I'm trying to watch my booze intake. I need to stick to wine at home, and have the occasional beer when out.

    @desertsun - It's been a few years since I had one but I really hated it when I had it. I could try it again though.


  • @bethsmiles, it might be worthwhile to give it another try, especially with an orange slice squeezed and then dropped in. The beer-y orange at the end is the best part. But even if you don't like it, we can still be friends. Promise. <3

    @desertsun - I'll give it another try just for you! I haven't tried it with the orange slice :)


  • You're pups are adorable! They seem super cuddley!

    If you're still in Texas you should try the Shiner summer brew Ruby Redbird! It's DELICIOUS! It's fruity. I also love Shiner, so I'm biased. 

    Do you have a link to the song you wrote? I'd take random five dollar checks any day!
  • @bethsmiles Yay! Let me know what you think. 

    PS, I don't know how long you've had that comic as your siggy, but it made me LOL. :)

  • Lamarrs- I'm a big fan of shiner blonde...ill have to give the summer one a shot. I absolutely love the Shiner Cheer around the holidays YUMMO!

    Buddysmom- I'm not very well traveled, but my favorite place to be right now is South Carolina. It is such a different place from the craziness that I'm used to. The BF and I are aiming for Europe next spring. He spent a semester at Oxford and is dying to go back. I am happy to go along!

    I'm trying to upload the mp3 for my song, but YouTube is not being friendly! And it doesn't look like the guys have uploaded it. Ill get back to you on that one :)
  • @desertsun I love Blue Moon FI bought some for me the other day.  He did not buy me any oranges, I got some today so I could drink it properly.  I decided on Sangria tonight instead...

    Anniversary

  • I live in Ohio. Where was this band from? I may be familiar with them?
  • @danser55, what was FI thinking??? :)

    Sangria sounds delicious! did you make or buy?

    @desertsun - some girls I know put orange juice in their Blue Moon...is that normal? It seems like too much!

    Oooh! I majored in music theory, too! But it was my second major and I was four classes short, so I have an extreme minor. I suck at composition, though, so that's cool that you get song royalties.

    @desertsun  He doesn't really drink so he didn't know...

    Bought some sangria, it was pretty good.

    Anniversary

  • @danser55 which sangria did you buy? I'm always trying new brands even though my homemade sangria is pretty awesome.
