I was tagged by Carmen at http://lilhatshack.typepad.com/ ( i haven't really figured out how to do links in my posts.
Total number of music files on your computer: I'm not sure.....LOL..i've maybe downloaded 5! but my girls have probably down loaded more...I'm not even sure how to check..HA
The last cd you bought:
Martina McBride's Greatest Hits...I had to replace my other one it got a scratch! and started skipping all over the place.
The last song you listened to before reading this message:
When You Believe by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston from The Prince Of Egypt....my daughter Rae is singing it in her school variety show and we were listening to it, so she can learn it.
Name 5 songs you listen to often or that mean something to you:
hmmnn....they'll probably mostly be Martina McBride she's my favorite and I've ben listenign to her a lot lately...
1. When God fearing Women Get the Blues---because it's just a fun hilarious song!!
2. Where Would You Be-----sometimes that's how feel about my DH and I
3. Strangers- same reason as above..
4.Concrete Angel-..it's a sad song makes me cry everytime..
5. a song my daughter wrote....i don't know the title...it may not even have one but it's good and very catchy...
3 people i'm gonna pass this to and why:
Sara---because i don't think she has been yet and she comments on my blog a lot and leaves me LOTS of compliments!!
Tink--again because i don't think she has been and she has posted comments and compliments as well!
and Rebecca for the same reasons!
After we drank all the wine.( and EVERY couple contributed at least TWO bottles of wine not to mention we opened up THREE bottles of Champagne afterwards..so needless to say we were ALL feeling 'good"..LOL) the guys broke out in song! My hubby is in the middle.
And this is a sortof matching purse I was making that day too...I actually finished crocheting it last night and just need to add a lining and sew on a couple of flowers I made for it.
I'm just sooooo happy with how these turned out!

Yesterday My friend Lynn took us ( me and my friend Nanci) to a Phillipino Restaurant for lunch...OMG it was delicious!! It's this nice little hole in the wall type place and they treated us sooo well. ...they gave us a sampling of just about everything and it was ALL good....for Dessert we had Battered and Fried Plantain...it was to DIE for!!...after that we did some window shopping...we hit the Knitting store( i actually bought some stuff there) ....the stitching store....the stamping store....then on to the Asian Market where i picked up these dipping bowls...Rae and I like to get Sushi a lot....and we needed something for dipping it in Soy Sauce..
then we headed over to the Asain Bakery a few doors down and got some fresh warm rolls.
Then last night I went to dinner at a really nice place in Down Town Norfolk called Sterlings.. Every 3rd Wednesday the ladies in my neighborhood go out to celebrate any Birthdays that month. The Birthday girl gets to pick the restaurant. I had Broiled Scallops( my favorite) with a nice ginger Sauce and asian slaw, crab puff with cheese, and garlic mashed potatoes......then for dessert I shared a fried cheesecake.YUMM
Our church sponsored a V.Day dinner at the Base club....We all had a Great time. Here is a Rare pic of Brad and I..
The guys were all asked to make and decorate a card for thier Sweeties.Here is Brad patiently working on his...I was actually surprised at the effort he was making.
S. and J. ---the Z's --friends of ours . J. sings in choir with Brad.
N. the Actress. note her 'model" pose...
Me with Britt after the party was over....she provided Babysitting at the Chapel and came by afterwards to help with 'cleanup"
here is my V. Day loot from Brad ..he got the heart shaped box of chocolates when he was in Holland....he says it was 'expensive" and that it's supposed to be the some of the best in the world....it IS pretty good...and at the top is Brad's finished card from the party.
Inside...he did a really nice job.....
