Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King

Dave Matthews Band has a new album coming out June 2 and I'm so excited. I've already purchased the new single on my iTunes and I'm listening to it right now.

Dave Matthews was huge when I was in college. Every time I hear a song from Under the Table and Dreaming and Crash I think about those days. They mostly remind me of my best friend Daria and our senior year. We were both dumped by our boyfriends (each of three years) the same week in September. We used to lay in my bed and listen to Dave Matthews and Sarah McLachlan and cry and laugh all at the same time. That year was the best year of college, although we didn't realize it at the time. We were single and young. We danced, shopped, laughed, partied and studied every now and then when exam time came around.
When I heard the new song from Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King, I e-mailed her immediately and she texted back, "I just bought it on flashbacks!"
Ahhhh...memories. Do you have a favorite song or group that takes you back?


  1. What a great post! Golly, I have so many....this is tough! A lot of Kenny Chesney songs remind me of my college days.

  2. DMB also brings back major college memories for me...and Counting Crows too...esp Mr Jones!

  3. Love me some DMB as well!
    Check out the award that I gave to you today on my latest post!

  4. Southern,
    I stumbled onto your blog because of the Dave Matthews reference (I'm a huge fan). I'm a bit older than you, so listening to early DMB brings back memories other than my college days, but I get what you're saying nevertheless. And I'm already hooked on the new song and can't wait 'til the whole CD is out.
    Great blog, in general, by the way. :-)
    Good luck with your walk . . .

  5. Great post! I love DMB.

    The DMB song Say Goodbye takes me back to high school. It still makes me tear up. There is a long story behind it, but suffice it to say, the song came on the radio at the perfect time.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
