I caught a cute video today of Sadie dancing. She's still so small but I can't believe she'll be 17 months tomorrow! She's so much fun. I love watching her constantly learning. She's not super verbal yet (although she does say some words) but she understands so much. Love Holly's comment about Sadie's dress. She notices everything pretty and girly. She gets so excited anytime I wear any jewelry- especially because it's a rare occasion.

There are moments when music, like food, can take you right back. I knew that going to a Journey concert would lead me there, and I was right. A lot of 80's music does this for me. Sometimes it seems like I spent my whole childhood cleaning my room, or that giant bathroom mirror, singing along to whatever was Amy or Katie's current favorite song. Things never got very clean, I think, because I was having too much fun singing.
There are some songs that bring up very specific memories. Here are a few:
Billy Joel's 'Still Rock and Roll to Me': We listened to this on the drive home from Utah at some point, I seem to think it was a Conference weekend (I also remember on this trip thinking about how much I liked President Monson). I remember it was on a mix tape that also had Total Eclipse of the Heart, but I liked this song better.
The Beastie Boys 'Brass Monkey' and They Might be Giants 'Mr. Horrible' and 'Particle Man': We played Mario Brothers to these a lot.
1st Mormon Pop Artists, 'In the Hollow of His Hand' and 'I Heard Him Come': I think we got ready for church to these songs every Sunday for three years.
Belinda Carslile 'Heaven is a Place on Earth': This song was what was stuck in my head the whole day of my baptism. HAHA!
I'm sure you all have diffrent musical memories too.
