Everyone's Got a First ;)


Evening folks!

So if you read the title, you kinda know what I'm going to be talking about, something everyone experiences...FIRSTS!!! It was funny today because I had a few friends telling me all about their individual firsts; one had had her first curling experience and another had her first substitute teaching experience :). I love hearing about people and their 'firsts', it means that people around me are trying things and taking chances. It means that we are living and we aren't being stagnant with our lives. 

I THINK PEOPLE NEED TO HAVE MORE FIRSTS!

Anywho... since this is a music blog, I thought I would share two firsts that I had. And hopefully hear other's as well :)

That's Fergie in the orange!
First Concert - Cher, with Cyndi Lauper and Wild Orchid(the girl trio that Fergie was in before BEP!) - So I went to this concert when I was 10 or in Grade 5. My Dad is a major Cher fan (I specifically him introducing me to this song!) so when she was coming to Edmonton we just HAD to go!! It was my first experience so I thought that it was kinda bad quality sound and we were far away but just being in the atmosphere and the ambience was amazing. It was so loud, but it definitely hooked me! Seeing live shows is something I love. Since then I've been to over 10 shows at that venue and every time I love it :). I love when artists get to show off their craft and I get to experience it with other music lovers :).

First CD - Britney Spears by Britney Spears - So this probably not that surprising but yup, Baby One More Time was my first CD. I remember my Dad coming home from Radio Shack with it and I was so stoked..for the music and the quality..and honestly, also for the preview of upcoming Backstreet Boys songs. I was 11 and in Grade 6 when this album came out. I thought I was so cool :). Still a favourite and still on my iPhone to this day!

So hopefully after reading this, you look back at your own firsts and hopefully plan some more! Because how can you learn what you like if you don't try it first ;)

In Honor of CFR y'all!!


Hi Y'all (yup it's gonna be a country music post, so if that ain't your thang, then mosey on ;))

SO! A couple of friends and I are going to CFR (Canadian Finals Rodeo) in Edmonton tomorrow and in honor of that, I figured I would put together some of my favorite cowboy inspired songs...and the picture helps too ;).


To start off, the title is just the perfect song for this theme. I want a cowboy after listening to this song. 'I want the Wranglers, stetson and all that stuff' sings Reba..and um...YES PLEASE!! 

Is it just me or is there this glowing, alluring light behind cowboys? Don't we all want to be ridden off into the sunset? Heck, my Mom is a 'rough tough farm girl' as my Dad calls her and I'm sure she'd be tickled pink if I came home on the arm of a farmer tanned boy!...I would be too...;)

Anywho! Enough about me..here are some more great songs!!

Rodeo - Garth Brooks - for Trish ;) - Couldn't find the video.

Can't wait to cowgirl up ;)
