Not that I am excited or anything .... they go on sale on Feb. 11th - coincidentally the same day I am seeing Keith Urban - and I had a chance to get tickets today through where I work. I put in my name for a drawing to purchase advanced tickets and I got drawn!

Not sure which show I am going to yet, he's doing 2 but I don't care! I'm just happy to have tickets :)

Something's Gotta Give

As stated previously, I love music and lots of songs fit my mood at the moment, a time in my life, etc. I've decided this is my theme song for at least the first quarter of 2006 :)

Something's Gotta Give - performed by LeeAnn Rimes.
Jenny's got a job, a cat named Jake,
31 candles on her birthday cake
Next year

Thought by now she'd have a man
Two car seats and a minivan
But it still ain't here (hey!)

She's been lookin' for Mr. Right so long
But all she's found is Mr. Wrong
That's the pitts

She's drawn a line that she won't cross
Her and time are facing off
She says something's gotta give

Something's gotta give me butterflies
Something's gotta make me feel alive
Something's gotta give me dreams at night
Something's gotta make me feel alright
I don't know where it is
But something's gotta give

Friday night she had a date
Cell phone junky a half hour late
That's the biz baby

She's riding out the twists of fate
She's had all that she can take
She says something's gotta give

(repeat chorus)

I swear
There's got to be a meant to be for me out there
Somewhere someday
I'm gonna find someone, somehow, someway

Jenny's got a job, a cat named Jake,
31 candles on her birthday cake
Next year

She thought by now she'd have a man
Two car seats and a minivan
She says something's got,
Something's got,

Yes, another coffee post

I will go with this ... I love Starbucks as mentioned before and love, love, love my Frappacino's! =)

You Are a Frappacino

At your best, you are: fun loving, sweet, and modern

At your worst, you are: childish and over indulgent

You drink coffee when: you're craving something sweet

Your caffeine addiction level: low

What celebrity do you resemble?

She found this on My Heritage

I used this photo of me:

And got these results:

Olivia Newton-John

I also got results for:
Meg Ryan, Ninet Layeb, and Courtney Cox

This could explain why Grease if one of my favorite movies and I used to want to be "Sandy" when I was a little girl =) What do ya think?

Someone Else's Dream

I'm a big fan of music, and alot of times can relate songs to different points during my life, or mood(s) that I am in.

I have always like Faith Hill and this song she did, "Someone Else's Dream" has always been a favorite ... even though for quite some time I was singing it wrong ... thanks Heidi for correcting me *wink* but this really hits home for me and it's kind of my theme song for the year.
If you haven't heard it, I recommend listening to it, it's a good song.

"Someone Else's Dream"

Her momma's still got that sequin gown that she wore in '68
She taught her early how to smile that smile and wave from the parade
It took a whole lot of years and tears
For her momma to finally admit
No matter how many stitches and pins
That old dress was never gonna fit

She was daddy's little girl
Momma's little angel
Teacher's pet, pageant queen
She said "All my life I've been pleasin' everyone but me,
Waking up in someone else's dream"

Her daddy used to say, "You'll make a lovely bride someday
He'll ride up on big white horse and just carry you away"
It took twenty-five years and some broken vows
Before they'd finally see
There's a little more to love and life
Then fairy tales and hand me down dreams

She was daddy's little girl
Momma's little angel
Teacher's pet, pageant queen
She said "All my life I've been pleasin' everyone but me,
Waking up in someone else's dream"

Now she's got twenty-seven candles on her cake
And she means to make her life her own
Before there's twenty-eight

She was daddy's little girl
Momma's little angel
Teacher's pet, pageant queen
She said "All my life I've been pleasin' everyone but me,
Waking up in someone else's dream"

Yet more stuff about me

A little more about me
CASEd from Heidi and Dawnn

1. Where were you when the ball dropped for 2006?
At Dawnn's house ... yeah it was one heck of a party! Kissing everyone and taking photos.

2. How did you get the idea for your profile name?
I am a Creative Memories Consultant (CMC for short) and my old boss Mickey nicknamed me Emmylou and it just stuck as a nickname that was all he called me or he'd shorten it to Emmy. Everyone at the office started calling me by that, I even had clients that thought my name was Emmylou :) I still answer to it and he still calls me it when we chat online as we have remained friends even though I moved away and no longer work for him. So when it came time to make a name for ScrapShare I thought of Emmylou and just tacked CMC in front of it. Voila!

3. What time were you born?
6:57pm after over 28 hours of labor. I was 3 weeks overdue and 9 pounds at birth and the Dr. underestimated my weight and my mom was maybe 125 soaking wet and pregnant with me! He thought she would be able to deliver me without intervention and so he left her and let her labor until it got to the point that I was in danger and Mom was fading fast so they did an emergency C section to save us both.

4. Has the death of a celebrity ever made you cry?
Yes. I cried during Princess Di's funeral also.

Yes, crazy ones ... another one about being pregnant and I was upset because I was late for my baby shower and all the guests knew if I was having a girl or boy and I didn't one of my co workers wouldn't drive me to my shower because he didn't want to be around girls and I kept telling him I was not going to not go because I need to know if I am having a girl or boy and he just has to drop me off outside the house.
Not sure of outcome of that, next one switched to me being at Coldstone Creamery in line for cake batter ice cream and kissing a very cute guy.
