New Discoveries

I've been meaning to post about my favorite new discovery for quite some time now. On the slim chance that there are still people in the dark, like I have been, you must check out Pandora! This is pretty much the coolest website I have ever seen (you'll agree if you're a music lover like me). All you have to do is type in an artist you are loving or a song, and Pandora will create your very own radio station and save it. It'll play song after song for you that has qualities just like the one you picked and you give the song either a thumbs up or thumbs down (or just let it play if you don't want to be bothered by that). Thumbs up - they'll play more of the like, thumbs down - they will never ever play that song again! You can have multiple stations saved up too. Staying true to my random music taste for example, I have these stations: The Fray, Rihanna, MercyMe, Lil' Wayne (should those two stations be even typed next to each other??), and for my husbands deep south county taste, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band? *which gets no play* So anyway, this is perfect for me when it's time to do a little house cleaning. Oh yeah.. best part... it's FREE. Boooyah.

Discovery number 2? I don't remember, actually. I had this blog post idea in my head all day yesterday, but I was following my strict rule of not doing two posts in one day. I was hoping it would come to me by the time I got to this point, but it's just not happening. Buutttt....

I have a third one after last night. I went to a place called A Pigment of Your Imagination last night with our FRG group. It's the cutest little place to go in and paint pottery. I was looking forward to going, but a little worked up about it at the same time. I promise you, I am the least creative person you will ever meet. I also have zero artistic ability and have a hard time with decision making. After saying all of that - I had THE BEST TIME. I can't express how much fun we had! The whole picking out what I wanted to make and deciding on a design and colors did stress me out a tad. I must have changed my mind at least 4 times. I made a great decision in the end, though, and I can't wait to see the finished product. (Much to my relief they had stencils... so you really don't have to be a great artist!) It takes quite a bit longer than I expected so most of us didn't finish. We go back next Wednesday morning to finish up. I can't wait to show y'all the finished product :) And seriously... I could make us go broke in that place! I have SO many more projects in mind at that place. Gifts, decorations, and nursery items... watch out!

I used to have the same rule.. And I do. And sometimes I post more than one post a day. BUT when I have a post in my head, I type it out and then schedule it (a great feature!) I have four posts scheduled right now to finish out the week! Keeps me from forgetting my ideas.

I've given up on the "no multiple posts" rule, which I was very strict with for almost a year. Now, I'd rather have separate thoughts organized in separate posts. That's just my style. :) And I'm the same way in those pottery places - it can be stressful! I mean, they charge you per color (the places I have gone, anyway) and you can't change it once it's painted and fired! Pressure!!

I'll have to look up Pandora! And don't worry, I LOVE Lil Wayne too! :)

I'm right with you on Pandora. It's the best thing since sliced bread. ;)

And the pottery project sounds like so much fun! Glad you enjoyed yourself. =]

I am lucky to get to two posts within 4 or five days! I say, if you have something to post, POST IT!

Who needs rules anyway?

Have a great day!

OMG....I LOVE those pottery places! They had one near my college and I used to go all the time. Maybe I'll try to find one here in El Paso! Never heard of Pandora but it sounds cool :)
