A weekendful-o-stuff

I’m coining a new term — “weekendful”. It’s kinda like a capful only bigger.  :-)

Wow… I’d put a whole list here of everything that we did this weekend, but it would take too long, so I’ll just copy from my facebook status for Sat and Sun…

Got a few things left to work on, but thankfully most of the hard work on the outside of the house is complete (garden and fence). Next up is the INSIDE…

Sarah decided to move her Pampered Chef open house to the weekend following Memorial Day, so that gives us a little extra time to get things done. Besides general house cleaning, I need to get the basement leak fixed, plus clean and shampoo all of the carpets in the house (due to recent issues with Dog #1).  Still a lot to do, but I think the fact that we got so much done this weekend and still survived will carry me through the next few weeks… not to mention the fact that there’s a long weekend coming up and early dismissal starting Friday. Yahoooo!

Song for today… cause this is my plan for today, since I made up for it this past weekend. The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything… Veggie Tales

Ok – this is a first…

Playing for a wedding this weekend and doing a nice mix of songs… the standards really, except for the bride’s processional. It’s something I’d never heard before… it’s beautiful, but VERY non-traditional. Actually, it’s from a video game. Yes, that’s right — it’s on a video game soundtrack. The cool thing is that I actually found printed sheet music for it!

I honestly believe that the music at your wedding should be YOUR music. It’s a day to celebrate and you shouldn’t be confined by what music OTHER people think you should have at your ceremony. Yes, that means if you want the sound system to blare “Walkin’ on Sunshine” as you exit the ceremony, then go for it. You want a Metallica song as you’re lighting the unity candle (“Nothing Else Matters”), then be my guest. I suppose there are limits to what would be acceptable, but really it’s all about the theme of the song… the style doesn’t matter one bit.

Here’s what I’m playing this weekend, just in case you’re interested:

So much for that idea…

Seems once you get behind on a post-a-day song, it’s kind of hard to get back in the groove. Here I am, looking at my last post in February thinking to myself “How did I get so far behind?”

I’m going to have to make up for it by doing something really cool… I just don’t know what it is yet.

Oh – and by the way – LaLa.com is going away soon too, so I’m going to have to find a way to link to the songs. Any brilliant ideas out there? I hear iTunes may be coming out with a similar service since they bought LaLa and is shutting them down.

More to come… but I’ll leave you with a song:
