My Silver Lining

I am one of the luckiest moms in the world. I have four beautiful children and they are all special...

I have this girl, she has a million nicknames and she's amazing. She's beautiful- inside and out; she's multi talented- she is successful at pretty much everything she attempts. She's kind, she's thoughtful and she's smart. She has one of the kindest hearts, but don't mess with her. She's strong and tough, but soft and sweet at the same time.

She almost didn't make it to this world, but I'm so glad she did. She has blessed my life so much and taught me more than she'll ever know. I always joke that I'm her trial because she really is almost perfect... and well, I'm soooo not...

Zizzy, Thanks for letting me be your mom. It's been a wonderful 12 years. You are inspiring to me and to everyone around you.

You are truly loved.

Here's your favorite song...

It's no secret that I love Kelly Clarkson. I know it's poppy weird music, but I love her voice. And she was my American Idol. I love her and I'm not ashamed.

I love this song...So me!!!

Sometimes it lasts in love...

But sometimes it hurts instead.

This song went right to my soul the first time I heard it. There are few that do that for me. Adeles voice is so passionate, I almost cried. You can actually feel the pain and longing.

I don't even know what to say. The song speaks for itself.

Blink is baaaaack!

I've been listening to this album for about a week now. While short (only 49 minutes!), In my opinion, the album does not disappoint.

I think after 8 years, Tom, Mark and Travis have come back strong. it's got a lot of the classic Blink sound, but they've added synths. I hear some nods to my favorite black haired, lipstick wearing band the Cure in here too.

I've read reviews, and they are not all positive, but I like it. To me, it's the Blink 182 we know and love, but a little more grown up. You can certainly hear a very similar sound to Tom Delonge's other band, Angels & Airwaves, which I think that some die hard blink fans might have issues with.

I struggled with the decision of what song to play in this post, I didn't wanna play something that is on the radio right now, I prefer deeper cuts. But it was also important for me to capture the sound of the whole album in one song as much as I could. So naturally, I'm gonna play a couple...

Because If I have to suffer, well, you should too...

This song has been stuck in my head for days. I might have to die if it doesn't go away soon.

Somehow, it's just better when Dave Gahan sings it.

I'm not dissin' Johnny... But c'mon, man.

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Today is a special day.

It happens to be the birthday of someone very special.


I like Sting. He's so talented. He's like 60, and looks amazing. His longevity in the music industry is legendary. And anyone who plays the Double Bass is just. plain. awesome. Period.

Come to think of it, there's someone else who shares this special day with Sting. This person is courageous and strong. She does not play the Double Bass, but still somehow, remains cool. She has been part of my life for many, many years. She has made me laugh when I wanted to cry. She stood by me when she thought I was being stupid. That's a good friend.

She has made some tough choices recently. Choices that I questioned and worried over. I love her and I love her family. I want them to all be ok. I think they will be, but the backlash she is experiencing is not comfortable. One thing I admire about her is that in the face of all this, she remains true to her feelings and stands for what she thinks are good, long term decisions for herself and her family. I wonder if I can be that strong... not sure that I could be. I have hope though, after all these years, that she has been able to teach me and impart some of her courage unto me.

anyway.... Happy birthday, dear friend. You are loved. A lot.

Here's your boy singing a special song just for you.
