TBT 90's Songs I Can't Live Without

We all have those songs that take us back...way back. My teen years were spent in the 90's and these are the songs that take me back to the gold old days:

Sohpie B. Hawkins - Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover

Wow, this song! My best friend and I wrote novels in high school and we even wrote some short stories about our crushes. This song is dedicated to that crush ( a certain snare drummer) and that story. I love this song!

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris

My high school sweetheart wrote the lyrics to this song in a note for me. It was our song from then on. Makes me smile every time I hear it. We might not have ended up together in the end, but we sure are great friends now. 

Dave Mathews Band - Crash Into Me

This song has all those summer band camps written all over it! It takes me back to long hot marching band practices, goofing off, crushes and a whole lot of fun. I miss those people and those days!

Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight

This song was always blasting out of our car speakers after football games. I can still smell the popcorn from our stadium!

Alison Krauss - When You Say Nothing At All

Ode to my best friend! Not only did she sing this song with her folk band, but it was our song. We were two misfits that found one another and never let go. You know who you are girl and I love you so very much!

Spice Girls - WANNABE

Again, my best friend and I were obsessed with the Spice Girls! We even dressed up like them and drug our then boyfriends kicking and screaming to the movies to watch their movie. Those poor boys. 

Do you have certain songs that take you back? If so, what are they? I love these songs and so many more, but these are the ones that I can't live without!

Happy TBT

  1. Iris and Crash Into Me would definitely make my list of memorable music, but as I'm an 80's child, I think most of my list would come from that decade. Walk Like An Egyptian—all the way.

  2. My friends and I danced to Spice Girls in a talent show. It was terribly embarrassing.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…
