80s Baby At Heart.

I am a shameful blogger; I totally forgot to do the Reading Wednesday post. I am currently in the middle of a book at the moment; the Glass Castle. My bff Brian wrote a post about this last week when he guest posted for me. Read it. It's amazing. Click here.

Anyhoodle, being a 20 something I was obviously born in the 80's. (86 to be exact, eek the big 2-5 is coming up soon!). In my opinion I have horrible music taste. I am a very mainstream kinda gal. My iPod is filled with songs that everyone has heard/continues to hear on the radio. I'm not ashamed though; hip music is hip. haha.

But two nights ago I was laying in bed browsing the iTunes store when I came across songs for .69 cents each. I went into the 80's section & started jamming out to some of the songs. (i bought a couple as well). It made me think of when I was younger.

I am very thankful to still have both of my parents together. (28 years I believe this year!) For the first ten years or so of my life; my mom was there 24/7. Then we moved; got a bigger house and she went back to work part-time. She worked nights at a trucking company doing billing. Which meant time spent with my daddy!

Friday nights in the summer my dad would take us out to do various things. I remember watching my first professional sporting event. It was soccer. (I actually detest soccer but any kind of sports in person is cool in my book). I remember on the drive to the stadium (which isn't THAT far away, but ya know when you're a kid everything seems so far away) my dad was blasting Lite 100.5, which is our local 60s, 70s, 80s station. I fell in love with the songs of the 80s especially. I remember staring up at the clear night sky and envisioning what life held for me.

Every now and then, I rock out to that station singing along to the songs that were a staple in my childhood. It's usually with my best friend on long car rides. We sing at the top of our lungs and laugh. We think of songs to call into the radio station and wait anxiously till its played. I still look up at the night sky wondering what life has in store for me.

Now I leave you with my favorite 80s song. "Is This Love" by Whitesnake. What's your favorite 80s song?

Isn't it funny how an old song can take you back to a simpler time? Even a theme song from a movie. I don't know why, but I heard the Ghostbusters theme song not too long ago and brought back some pretty cool memories. Ironically, I think Ghostbusters came out the year you were born. :)

Gah...I think I was born in the wrong generation. 70's, 80's...that's where it's at!
