*** 3.) List your five most recent favorite things.
*** 4.) I'm hungry. Share your very favorite recipe!!
1. My first Album...
one of those great big 331/3 ones, that I actually purchased myself
... a giant licorice pizza...
"Shadow dancing....honey you do it right...uh huh!" {{that was a song lyric}}
How did I feel about it? Ohhh! {{swoon}}
It was a giant picture of his perfect head, and I imagine him singing all the songs to me.
Then... gulp... I can't believe I'm admitting this... I would kiss that great big picture and pretend we were getting married. I adored him so.
Imagine my dismay and utter anquish when I found out he MARRIED Victoria Principal...
Then... imagine my stupified face when I was told he was the BEEGEES younger brother!
OH THE HORROR!!! I was also in love with Barry Gibb, and my being 11 at the time.. didn't put two and two together that they both HAD THE SAME LAST NAME!!!
How does it make me feel now?
Sad actually. I NEVER hear Andy Gibb songs on the...GULP... "Oldies" stations.
Lots of other artists died, and they still play their music... but not my Andy's.
Maybe that evil, horrid Victoria, bought all the rights and kept him from me all these years... even in his death.... alas... I will never know.
For now... I will just have to sing "Shadow Dancing" in my head.
1. Nivea Kiss of Moisture lip balm.
2. Wall Words... I must own a million of them... I just haven't put them up yet!
3. My new fabulous slippers. I wear them non stop... I want to wear them EVERYWHERE! Toooo comfy!
4. My new fancy schmancy hair stuff my Mama always buys me.
All state of the art, hottest new EVERYTHING... yeah... I know...
that last post WAS NOT a good example... I was desperate!!!
My gray grows in 3 measly weeks!!!
5. Scrapblog... I am still addicted. I have actually started a small business
making the books!
Wanna join in on the fun?
Go on over to Mamakat's button to the right!


  1. Oh my God, I loved Andy Gibb. He grew up here and married an Aussie girl when he was only 18 or so. He had a daughter called Peta and I often wonder what happened to her. I forgot about Victoria Principal - sheesh she was way too old for him wasnt she? Poor guy he was so young when he died. I also loved Barry Gibb. Funny how he and Andy got all the looks and their twin brothers kind of missed out. So much talent though. In fact I am going to see if I can find any of Andy's music on You Tube. You have just reminded me.

    Oh and my greys come through too in 3 weeks as well. Wish my Mom was a hairdresser though....ok off to find Andy...

  2. Well, I can't say i loved Andy Gibb, but some of the Bee Gees stuff ...

    And my first purchases were vinyl as well - both 45 and 33 1/3. And then a test to see if you are really old - remember the 16 2/3 rpm children's records?

    And my gray - has chased the black right off my head.

  3. Visiting from MamaKat's Writer's Workshop...

    Oh ... Andy Gibb! That takes me back! So funny you never made the connection to the BeeGees!

    And I keep hearing about ScrapBlog. I'm going to have to check it out

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog this week!!
    And, for your information, I totally knew who Andy Gibb was. Ha! :)
    Good list of favorites, too!

  5. Scrapblog? I have yet to hear about this, but if you love it, I will check it out.

    And I need to try the Nivea stuff. I keep hearing the best things about it!

  6. I need to check out that scrapblog...everyone seems to love it!!
    Oh, and I wear my slippers everywhere too...

  7. Oh my god, I so had a huge crush on Andy Gibb. My first record was Super Tramps Breakfast in America!

    Good luck with your new business. :)

  8. I'm visiting from MamaKat's.

    A few people have mentioned scrapblogs. I don't know what they are. I'll have to find out!

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. Never heard of scrapblog but will definitely be checking it out now. Thanks!
    Had to repost my comment because of a spelling issue. :-)

  11. Really, there's nothing quite like a pair of comfy slippers! And I LOVE digiscrapping but still have yet to try scrapblog (I remember you mentioning it before). I'm too addicted to Photoshop! :-)

  12. Twins again. I bought that exact same album and I was shocked he was brothers with the Bee Gee's!!! I was saddened when he died too. Damn that Victoria Principal!!!

  13. I love the Bee Gees and I will have to check out your scrapblog.

  14. Oh my gosh, I had totally forgotten he was married to Victoria Principal. But, that was my sister's crush so I wouldn't know these things.

    I have trouble with the gray too sneaking in quickly too. I could easily get my hair colored every 3 weeks but I make myself wait 6 because it's so expensive!

  15. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is so pretty - I love the background and the super cute header. :)

  16. Hahahaha! Oh the Andy Gibb thing is crackin me up! Do you remember when Andy and Victoria sang that song together, "All I Have To Do Is Dream".

    Maybe this will jog your memory.....

    BTW... I see that you are in Southern CA. I'm over in Northern CA. The farm we went to was Ardenwood Farms in Fremont.

    Enjoy the video!

  17. I love the Nivea lip balm. Scrapblog, hmm. I'll have to check it out.
