Sorry, I mis-spelled heaven.

Sarah is your neice. I love Over the Rainbow sung by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. It is beautiful!!! It reminds me of my Mother and my Grandma that have gone to haven.

If I couldn't figure out by now that Sara is your niece I would need some serious help!
In answer to your question, I have kind of a song that goes along with my life verse of Romans 8:28- "Blessed Be the Name" by Matt Redman. If you have never listened to it you should look it up on UTube...we are not to praise God only in the good times (and there have been many as we are all so blessed), but also in the hard times...we choose to praise Him no matter what the circumstance. Also, closely tied to that is a newer song from Brandon Heath..."Give Me Your Eyes". Along the theme of blessings, it's easy to get caught up in our own small world and get all worked up over relatively small things. However, there is a whole other world out there that is begging for us to pay attention and care about them. This song talks about having eyes like those of the Lord to reach out to the forgotten, the broken, the hurting. I so often forget to really care and pray for these people, and it is my hope that I won't forget to try and make a difference to those that happen to be less fortunate than me. I know lots of people put fun songs as their favs, and I have those too, but I always come back to the music that touches my soul and makes me want to praise God for the work he is doing in me.

What a happy day! Welcome to this amazing world and Happy Birthday Oliver! Thanks Sam for announcement! Awesome!

Okay, first of all was labor day formed to take a break from labor....I'm just saying... :)
So funny you mentioned songs...this isnt really my favorite song but I do like it...
Wise men say only fools rush in by UB40, ok on the way to work this morning that song came on the radio and it soooo reminded me of high school so I called one of my besties that I used to carpool with, we use to sing this song at the top of our lungs, and we cant sing...I called her and woke her up this morning when it was on the radio because it so brought me back to high school car pool days again.

NEED the blue dress. Sara Brown is your niece and my favorite song has to be "La Vie en Rose". I tend to live my life looking through rose colored glasses... Edith Piaf did it best(original French version), Louis Armstrong a close second and Jack Nicholson was not too shabby.

Awwww, go look at sweet Oliver on Sam's blog!! He's a beauty!

I wonder if you went to bed, following your curfew...

And thanks to Dana I'm singing 99 Luftballons in German now. Gosh, I loved Nena when I was a tween!

Thanks Sam for announcing the arrival of Oliver! Congats Sara :)

Pick this, tired from painting an antique bed for my daughter, Momma! I have Starched Linen hair, spotted legs, and nails! What a great messy parent I will look like for the first day of school tomorrow (1st Grade whoop!):-)

Oopsies! I spelled Sara's name like my Sarah.

Congratulations Sarah! And Happy Birthday little Oliver!!

I just saw on Sam's blog that Sara had the baby.
Congratulations to her!!
And I guess that's a good excuse to break one's curfew. ;o)

Sara Brown is your adorable niece! So glad she is there, I know you enjoy her so!
School started yesterday, such a mixed blessing, I love having all my babies home with me, but they also are starved for routine. And I am sure the Beast will always be the cutest in the class.
As for a favorite song, hmmmmm, not sure I have one, so I will put my ipod on random and see what comes up!
1. Just Like Heaven, The Cure
2. The Old Apartment, Barenaked Ladies
3. Forever, Chris Brown, and speaking of that, have you seen the wedding where the wedding party danced down the aisle to that? SO FUNNY! Go to YouTube and type in best wedding entrance ever! LOVE IT!

Sara Brown is your niece, however, there its another Sara Brown who is an interior designer, I think it is spelled differently. Anyway, my favorite song...that's tough, too many to chose, but I'm going to go with "Small Town" by Mellencamp, it sums up where I grew up in central IN.

My favorite song is THE KILLING MOON by Echo and the Bunnymen :), and yes, Sara Brown is your niece...

Ok so Sara is your lovely niece! As far as my favorite song oy that is just so hard. It it lame, and even lamer if you knew how old I am but I could play Bella's Lullaby on repeat for hours at a time. Twilight fans out there know the song lol! Ohh but my runner up is that move it move it song on the credits of Madagascar (yes I'm a mommy hehehe). Nothing is funnier then when that song comes on in the house EVERYONE even hubby and I have to stop whatever we are doing and the entire family has to go dance together in the living room. It's the unwritten law of booty shakin' in our house! Good time though!

Ok, this totally got me going and I just had to say one more thing that really reminds me of good times singing at the top of my lungs with all my girlfriends on the block to Run D MC, Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Vanilla Ice, Young MC, Rob Base, Fresh Prince theme song... you know, the ones you know every word to. I hope you and Sara don't think I'm too illin' for leaving another comment. Not to win, but just 'cause it's fun!

"(One) day when I was chillin' in Kentucky Fried Chicken
Just mindin' my business, eatin' food and finger lickin'
This dude walked in lookin' strange and kind of funny
Went up to the front with a menu and his money
He didn't walk straight, kind of side to side
He asked this old lady, "Yo, yo, um...is this Kentucky Fried?"
The lady said "Yeah", smiled and he smiled back
He gave a quarter and his order, small fries, Big Mac!
You be illin'"
Now Bust A Move on that MJC!

ok, a little old school

But, Kenny Loggins "Danny's Song"
Aka "Even thoguh We Aint Got Money" song

And even though we ain't got money, I'm so in love with ya honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning when I rise, you bring a tear of joy to my eyes,
And tell me everything is gonna be alright. "

so true and nothing more humbling than that :)

I have quite a few favorite songs. The one that brings tears to my eyes is "I Knew I Loved You" by Savage Garden. It reminds me of my wait for my beautiful DD from China. Sara Brown is your niece.

Sarah Brown is your niece, and my favorite song right now is "Rock & Roll" by Eric Hutchinson.

Sooooo excited to see the mommy clothes from Gypsy Blue! It's about time I get some new digs, wouldn't you say??

Sarah is your cute almost baby having niece!

Favorite Song...6th grade homecoming dance: Bon Jovi's Living on a prayer! Brings back memories EVERY.TIME.I.HEAR IT! Not only was it the homecoming dance, it was my FIRST dance EVER!n I could go into this is when i realized i should probably never dance in public again due to me embarrassing myself with all my smooth moves, but i digress...

Sarah is your niece.

I LOVE Bon Jovi! I'll be there for you is my all time favorite song.

Can't wait to see more sneak peeks!

BTW, TRacy P... I am totally impressed with your "Baby's Got Sauce" choice by G. Love and special Sauce. One of my faves, but hardly anyone knows it. You rock!!!
I've also had the song 99 Red Balloons in my head lately for no good reason. "99 red balloons floating in the summer sky"... bye-bye summer sky.
I love the song "Smile" by Jimmy Durante. That is the best song ever to get you by!!! Have you listened to it lately? It reminds me of my hubby who reminds me of this when I'm blue.
And one more...
I cannot listen to the Miley Cyrus song "Butterfly Fly Away" without bawling. The best part is, it even makes my hubby cry and he never cries. With 3 girls, what's a guy to do.
BTW, Sara Brown is such a great name for your cute little niece.
Oh, one more...
you HAVE to listen to "A Beautiful World" by Time Myers. You will love it!!! The words, the music, the feeling, everything. You will smile and it makes you want to dance around the kitchen!!! ;)xo

Sara Brown is your niece.
My favorite song "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban.

Very inspiring and very true, I am moved every time I hear it. What a great reassurance!

"You raise me up so I can walk on mountains. You raise me up to stand on stormy seas. I am strong when I am on your shoulders. You raise me up to more than I can be"

Sara is your niece!

My fave song o'the moment is "Push it Fergasonic" by Fergie, Salt 'n Pepa and JJ Fad (DJ Axel Mashup). I love it because it reminds me junior high dances and my first crush!

Okay, so I know you have a new 10 p.m. curfew. Lucky for us! I really want to make sure you stick to this so I will just be a little reminder...a little buzzer...Let's see some pics!

Anybody who knows me, knows that it would be impossible for me to pick one favorite song. Music runs through my veins!!! One of my favorites is "I Will" by the Beatles. It reminds me of my little bit who asks for it to be serenaded to her before bed.
"Love you forever and forever
Love you with all my heart
Love you whenever we're together
Love you when we're apart.

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know, I will
I will."
add my guitar and it's heaven.
Sara Brown is your cute little niece who I think is still in high school. I thought maybe she was also part of the inspiration for the buttons with that purse/pin thing you and David pulled on her awhile back. She's a keeper! lol

Sara is your beautiful Niece:)

My favorite song is:

- The Oscar Mayer Song
- Scooby Doo theme Song

Both remind me of great childhood memories


OK, so I am late to the posting part b/c earlier I was staring at the pictures so long I almost missed an event that I partially planned for my daughters (yes, I have to buy for THREE of us!!) at their school! That would have been embarrassing...So I kept trying to think of one favorite song...Right now, I just love Colbie Caillat...I bet she would wear MJC!! And I love talk radio rather than music (if I am being honest) b/c I NEED and deserve a break from the Miley Cyrus and HSM CDs that are in all 6 CD slots in my car!! :)

Can't wait for my show in two weeks!!

I have to admit it I got the two Sara's mix up, well not really mixed up....Sara that works for MJC is the VERY pregnant young lady who will be having a baby real soon by the looks of the pictures from this summer-can't believe she is still pregnant- I have to admit that I thought she was Sara Brown but never thought she was your niece(new she was the lovely lady who sends out all the goodies that we win in these fabulous contest). I remeber (I think) that your niece Sara Brown was in the pics of the 3 girls in the old car!!! So just correcting my post from earlier I was thinking about it all day and new something wasn't right!!! Anyway favorite song Brandy(Your a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass.....won't bore you with the story again!!! LOL!!!

After 300 and some comments, I better not get the Sara part wrong...she is your neice!

My favorite song? I don't know that I have a favorite, but I have the kid's song Throw It Out the Window stuck in my head. My kids love that song!

Sara is your neice :)

My favorite song is Abba's Dancing Queen. There is just something about it..when those sweet sounds start to play...my head starts moving from side to side, my hips start swaying, and then my feet start moving...and the you KNOW your in trouble. I am not the best dancer but for a few minutes of my life--I could care less. Oh.....and best danced with a little one in your arms.

One of my favorite songs is All YOU NEED IS LOVE by the BEATLES because sometimes LOVE is all you need! Also, I have loved the Beatles since I was 11 years old; which was a very long time ago! I love the art fair dresses you made with Beatles titles.

Sara Brown is your niece who is NOT pregnant. At least I hope she isn't because she is far too young.

Okay, Okay, Got the mesaage...I got my Sara's mixed up! I don't know how I got the two confused...I guess just hearing the name twice in the email. I do try to pay attention to detail, but this one went over my head! I guess I, too, am TIRED!!! I need the 10pm curfew...

The Time Traveler's Wife was a good movie but read the book first Denise. The BOOK is awesome! I don't know if you have read it yet. I read it 5 years ago.

EVERYONE knows that Sarah Brown is your niece... wonder how many really knew and how many read the comments to figure out this fact??? : )

My favorite song is Ne-Yo's MAD. I love the song... and more importantly what it says... never go to bed mad at your spouse. Good- no great advice!

Can't wait until my first trunkshow in September... I have never been as I have lived overseas forever... so I am counting down the days. : )

Rebel Judge

Sarah is your niece. My favorite song changes but lately its been Nickleback's song If Today Was Your Last Day...so very true and it reminds me to cherish everyday.

Oh I forgot the most important part, Sarah is your neice.

Yay a contest posted on my birthday!!! Yippee!

My favorite song ( I go through phases, I listen to a song over and over for weeks then move onto the next). Currently my fav is Linger by the Cranberries. I love it and I love it in the Adam Sandler movie Click.

Speaking of movies...I went to see The Time Travelers Wife lastnight for my bday with the hubby and it is a great movie. Go see it!

your niece--favorite song is---ok, that's impossible, but I love ice, ice baby.

Sara....ready to deliver at any moment & Sara Denise's niece!!
Still favorite song "somebody" Depeche Mode
Our song for our wedding! 80's FOREVER!! :)
Can I get that hair again?

Sorry about the mistake! Still wish you both wonderful wishes.

Sarah Brown is your niece...

And one of my all-time favorite songs is "my baby's got sauce" by G Love and the special sauce. Why?? Well, because we all have got a little 'sauce' in us, don't we? :) And because I used it as the lead in song on the first DVD/movie I created about my daughter on my mac...so now it reminds me of my saucey little one!

(here's the link in case you don't know it...you'll love it!

whoops...I just realized I got the 2 Sara's mixed up...Sara Brown is your niece only...not pregnant. Sorry!! :(

I figure I should let you know my little 24 month old's favorite song. It is Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer, yep that's right...Daddy played it for her on youtube and ever since it's been Kiss me, Kiss me...

So I kiss her, and then she get's more emphatic saying Kiss me Kiss me!!! (of course meaning the song.)

And Of course the beautiful brown haired Sara with the wonderful Mommy glow is your niece.

Sara Brown is your niece.
My favorite song is truly, madly, deeply by the savage garden. It means so much to me because I had my first dance with my husband to that song. It was our wedding song.

Sara is your darling neice.
I have several favorites
Forever Young by Rod Stewart-"May the good lord be with you down every road you follow"..... I think that is it- love that for my kids.
Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond- because I love the name Caroline even though we named our daughter Julia.

Willie Nelson- Always on my Mind- Just love it don't know why???

Sara is your niece. I'm listening to a lot of Laurie Berkner with the kids.

I actually love the sketches! they are cute!

Fav song: something by someone newish that is a sort of love song but I want to use it for a session and I hope they don't think its like stalker creepy. Can you fall in love with families when you photograph them (or maybe see them wearing your clothes?) ? umm..Yeah you can =)

Sara Brown = your niece!

My favorite song (according to my itunes "25 most played" is "Hey Tonight" by Will Hoge. It always reminds me of fall - cool nights, football games, apple pie & changing leaves.

Sara Brown is your lovely niece! :)

My favorite song of the moment is "A Man's Gotta Do..." from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Always stuck in my head!
