You know my car has a CD player. I always forget. I know it's because I've been riding around since I first got my license without one. Me and the radio are likethis. When I first got the new set of wheels, I popped in Destiny's Child's Greatest Hits and let's just say I've been rocking out to it for too long.
Last night I got a brilliant idea: a CD project. I must own about 100 CDs that never got tossed and I must listen to about 5 of them on rotation. I decided that everyday I drive my car - which is mostly Monday through Friday, to and from work - I will pop in a different CD for each day. I'm going to start at the beginning of my handy CD book; no matter what the CD is, it's getting played for a day. I figure I paid at least $10 for each one and they just sit around - it's time to bring them back in a big way. Each day, I'll post what CD it is, what song prompted me to buy it and what my favorite tracks are. Anyone else want to play? I'd love to see some other fellow blogger get in on the action and see what CDs are long forgotten in your collection...
Today, we started with Madonna's Bedtime Stories. I'm just going to warn you now that a majority of this will be Madonna - as I own every one of her CDs. Yes - all of them.
Song that prompted me to buy it: Take a Bow
Favorite tracks: Survival & Secret
In other news, tonight is our Game Night/Housewarming Party. Well, both those ideas kinda got tossed out the window since I realized that my boyfriend was wanting and needing something to send him off or at least know that people will miss him and care for him. Unbeknownst to him our game night has turned into a "We Will See You Soon Party".
My biggest challenge this week was preparing the decorations & ideas without him knowing. I've had to sneak in and out decor back and forth between the office and home. Damn, that living together. What to do at Christmas time? Anyway - I'm making it a bit old school with some of his favorites. I made pennants out of construction paper, (oh my, did you know they still have that?) I felt like a kid again cutting construction paper! I will tie the pennants across the room and they will read 'We Will See You Soon'. In addition to that, and since I'm not a paper waster: I created mini pennants to go on top of the blue frosted cupcakes. Blue is his favorite color and the pennants all say something different. Some say his name and all the rest say some sort of version of Goodbye on them; but in a kitschy way, such as "hasta la vista", "ciao", "adios", "see ya later alligator", "happy trails", "see you soon", etc.
His other favorites are lasagna and buffalo wings. So, this was a creative task, I messed around and combined Rachael Ray's Buffalo Chicken pizza and a lasagna recipe I had and voila, I created Buffalo Chicken Lasagna. Oh my gosh, I so hope it turns out good. I made another lasagna just in case, Barefoot Contessa's Turkey Lasagna. I prepped each one last night while the boy and his friends played Xbox. It's amazing how well they tuned me out, what was happening in the kitchen was no interest to them. Whoo.
Hopefully, it all goes great tonight. I'm sure we will still play games, as I've had my competitive head on all week! I get kinda scary when it comes to game nights, I always win and like to win and my team better bring it.
Have a great weekend!
