Shower Gifts tip:read the whole thing!

I gave Jenna a bridal shower today — just a smallish gathering for mother, future mother-in-law and sisters. I just reviewed the pictures and decided that I’m a lousy photographer — or my current efforts to be present and enjoy the moment are so effective that I failed to get even half the photos I wanted.

I love setting a pretty table and I think today’s table was perhaps one of my better "sets" evah!  It was so pretty! Fresh flowers, candles and even little glass hearts strewn about — photos? None.

The food at my house is never as good as the decor, but it turned out quite nice too — croissant sandwhiches with chicken salad, baked potato chips, fresh veggies and a very yummy strawberry cheesecake trifle. I did snap a quick photo right before we dug in …

but it’s not very good! The only picture I took of Jenna’s mom is blurry and I did NOT get one photo of her opening gifts. Not only that, I was enjoying myself so much I didn’t even write one thing down and I believe as hostess that was my job too!!

I did manage to snap this one, which is actually pretty special. This is grandma Bev, who we learned was engaged on Friday the 13th of June (just like Jenna) Now that’s a cool connection to have!

Not long ago, my sister Darci told me about a really fun FAVORITES party that she attended — everyone meets at the hostesses home and brings five of the same item — something they love, like a favorite candle, lotion, cleaning product, etc … So, I decided this would make a fun shower theme (and it did.) Everyone brought just three of the same item — one for Jenna and two that we drew names for.

We put all the items on my kitchen table. Jenna picked one and the person who brought it had to explain what she loved about it  … as you can see, we had everything from disinfecting wipes to chocolate! My favorites were …

Method hand soap and plain kleenex boxes from Target, and I won a very handy dish scrubber that you put dish soap in and cool, colorful bandaids that come with antibiotic ointment! I found the whole experience delightful — we learned some fun things about each guest.

MORE LATER.

    Thanks for your generosity!
    Michelle

  12. What an awesome idea! Mine would be Deva Premal’s Om Purnam II – incredibly relaxing chant music that my 5-yo thinks sounds like jungle music, so she loves it too!

  13. The first song that comes to my mind is “Live Like You Were Dyin’” by Tim McGraw. Thanks, you’re awesome.

  14. “100 Years” by Five for Fighting it has SUCH great lyrics. Check it out on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmoE8_U-JTw
    It tells such a great story of life and the years that pass SO quickly!☺

  15. Thanks so much for the chance! How very generous of you! I would put on Little Wonders by Rob Thomas (I have such a fan crush on that guy!!). His lyrics just touch my heart so much. Thanks!

  20. Mama Mia!! My girls and I have gone to see it 3 times and have the soundtrack memorized!! Never been to the theatre for any other movie three times — but it’s sooo good!! What a love story!

  21. Do I have to pick one favorite song to put on the iPod? “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Groban, then “Feeling Good” by Michael Buble, “Down to the River to Pray” by Allison Krauss. . . . Whatever happens to suit my mood at the time!

  22. hands down it will be “Godzilla” because we call the baby Phinzilla (his name is Phin) and it’s the ringtone on my phone.

  23. Stacy-
    What a generous giveaway. It looks like it was a wonderful shower!
    I’d put Carrie Underwood’s new song, Just A Dream on the Ipod…..the lyrics hit way too close to home in this Navy household, but I love the song right now.
    Thanks for the chance at an awesome gift.

  24. Grace Kelly by MIKA

  25. Sue in Grapevine says:

    I would download “Something that we do” by Clint Black. It’s a favorite of ours. Listen to the words sometime; they are good words to remember in marriage.

  26. Kate Hendricks says:

    Stacy,
    It would have to be Abba’s Dancing Queen and it would be SO helpful to have since I exercise on the treadmill at night with my pathetic little alarm clock radio providing my music! Sometimes it’s fuzz, sometimes it’s clear, sometimes it’s whatever the thing feels like doing! Then to have it be semi silent while I run, especially since the radio “provides” a bit of non sleeping music for my girls as they try to hit the sack (we live in a super cozy house and have to make due with the space)! SOOO I would be a Dancing Queen on the treadmill if I won this!!
    THANKS STACY FOR THE CHANCE!
    Kate

  27. Bob Marley’s “Three Little Bird’s” I don’t know why I love that song, but I do. What a great shower idea as I am getting ready to be a bridesmaid for the sixth time. Thaks for the fun post!

  28. I would download Kate Wolff’s “Give Yourself to Love.” It is an awesome wedding song: “Give yourself to love, if love is what your after–open up your heart to the tears and laughter…” I promise you if you really sit and listen to the lyrics, you will moved. Thanks. Irene

  46. Hi Stacy,
    What a cool gift from Apple. That wee Nano is so great. I think I would download some greatest hits from Chicago. Went to see them last night (my husband got tickets from work) and I had completely forgotten how many hits they had when I was growning up. It was a very nostalgic evening!
    Susan

    I grew up in Cupertino, and I remember my dad bought one of the first Apple Computers. It consisted of a black and white TV, a tape recorder, a keyboard, and that wide band of rainbow colored wire. There may have been a bit more to it, but that’s what I remember. He would put different cassette tapes in and out of the player and that told the computer what to do.It would take hours to accomplish the task he wanted it to do, and he was so excited about it. If I won, I would download “skin” by rascal flats. I always cry when I hear it.

    My husband’s friends threw him a party. The host bought him a large toolbox and every guest had to bring a tool. It was SO FUN and he started out our marriage with his very own set of manly tools.
    I tell everyone about it since it was such a cool idea and my hubby LOVED it! Why should the girl get all of the parties?

  154. Debbie Benson says:

    As a brand new grandmother, I would download “I Hope You Dance” (Leanne Womack) for our sweet Baby Brooke’s first video.

  155. great party ideas — I love the “favorites” game. :)
    um, I think I’ll need to download an ABBA song. I’m dying to see Mamma Mia and I’ve got those songs swirling in my head.

  156. I am working on the playlist for my coming home birth right now! I think the first thing I will download will be a music form the Phantom of the Opera. I feel a need in some powerful music lately :)

  157. I don’t have one yet! I need one!
    I would probably download some old country song like Roy Orbison or Dolly Parton. Buddy Holly. Or Bon Jovi. I’m partial to big hair bands too.

  158. What a cool story!! Who wouldn’t love a friend at Apple! I think the first song I’d download is “In Color” by a new country artist Jamey Johnson. It’s a really touching song.

  159. Brenda Walker says:

    I would put “lets get this party started” I need some good songs to keep me running and I think that it would be great to put on a pod to get my groove back on.
    By the way your party idea is great and I will have to try it with some friends.
    Thanks,
    Brenda

  160. How cool! My first song would be “So Beautiful” by Superchick. It’s a great song about being powerful girls/women!! :)

  161. I would download “When You Were Young” by The Killers because it’s one of my best friend’s favorite songs. I already have a green one so she would get this new blue one because she doesn’t have one!!!!

  162. what a great idea! =)
    i would download “at last” by etta james — the perfect song to describe the joy i already know i will feel when i someday find my “someone special”

  163. Say by John Mayer. I watched The Bucket List a couple of weeks ago and it was the song at the end credits. Good stuff!

  164. the pressure of a song… i just bought the new coldplay album on itunes so i think that would be it. What a great shower idea, i think that would be such a FUN party to have!

  165. I would download the “Linus and Lucy” song of Peanuts comic strip fame. I use it as a clean-up song in my preschool class. It is so peppy and uplifting you can’t help wanting to dance when you hear it.

  166. Tammy Thomas says:

    what a fun shower idea, I love it.
    I’ll be honest here, lol while I’d LOVE my own ipod (never had one) I’d have to get one of my tech savy kids to help me download songs.
    I’d have a list:
    Ordinary Miracle – the song my daughter danced her most recent solo to.
    Where have you Been: Kathy Mathea it makes me think of my parents everytime I here it (I lost them in a car accident suddenly) and it makes me think of seeing them again after a “time” here on earth and knowing I’ll get to be with them forever.
    I’d load a song on that my brother helped me write for my DH (actually he put it to music for me) about how my husband is my light in the darkness of depression when it gets bad.
    then I’d have my DD load up all of her crazy, funny, zany tunes that she finds so much amusement in and are just generally happy ones.
    thanks for the chance to “play”

  167. WOW how great R U?? I would download all the oldies, I love them they are just the thing when I scrap or clean the house, they give me such energy.
    Thanks for sharing the LOVE!!

  168. Great shower idea! I would download Rascal Flatts “Every Day”.

  169. 100 Years by Five for Fighting

  170. Julia Owen says:

    Love the cool blue color. I would download ‘From this moment on’ by Shania Twain. My first dance song. A memory I will never forget.

  171. I would download my whole Jack Johnson collection and then give the Nano to my brother who seriously needs some happy in his life right now. And blue is his favorite color.
    Thanks as always for your generosity!

  172. Anne Thurlow says:

    I would download two songs immediately. The first would be “The Promise” by Tracy Chapman which is the song my husband and I danced our first dance to at our wedding. Our first anniversary is on October 6th, 2008. The second song would be
    “Crash Into Me” by Dave Matthews Band just because it is my favorite song ever.

  173. Kristen Smith says:

    It would be a Michael Buble song for sure- he is classic! My husband and I have very different tastes in music, and he is one artist we can both agree on.

  174. What a cool surprise, and how funny that you had just bought the exact same one… I guess from reading some of the other comments I am not the last person on earth to be ipod-less. I too have never owned one. I still use *gasp* cd’s. lol The first song I would put on it… well I have bught the Carole King “Tapestry” album 6 times on cassette tape and now 4 times on CD. I guess it’s time to make a back-up copy so I don’t have to buy it again when one of my kids scratch it. My favorite song is “You’ve got a friend” so that would be the first song :o )

  175. Amy-Sue Del Bello says:

    I would download our “family song”…Running by No Doubt. We decided, as a family, that we needed a song that would remind us all of what our family stands for. Since my hubby and one of our daughters LOVE to run, and I am constantly on the run with the other kids…we thought this song woukd be perfect!
    So my advice to the new bride is to come up with a family song as well as a couples song.
    Thanks for the chance to win such a generous gift.

  176. I would probably download something classic and timeless. How about Patsy Cline “I went walking”?

  177. Michael Franti … Say Hey.
    You would LOVE the video. Check youtube. So colorful, so positive and beautiful, and so FUN!!!!

  178. My first download would be “Grow Old with Me”, a song from our wedding and our first dance. To me, it perfectly encapsulates what all brides and grooms dream about and strive for from their wedding day on…to grow old together in faith and love.
    Nicole

  179. Wow…what a great gift idea! I’d download Peter Breinholt’s “Best of Peter Breinholt”. I couldn’t choose just one song, but if I had to it definitely be “A Call I Hear.”

  180. I would download the new song by Michael Buble, “Lost”.
    Oooooh how I would love to have this little gem. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  181. Hmmmm…since I’d love to have my own ipod to listen to while I’m walking, I’d probably choose some fast paced, upbeat, happy songs…the first one that comes to mind…”Any man of Mine” by Shania Twain and my second would be “Accidentally in Love” by Counting Crows…because I think Shrek 2 is a family favorite – fun & happy movie, lol. :o )
    P.S. That trifle looks SOOOO good…will you share the recipe? pretty please?

  182. I would download Cristifori’s Dream by David Lanz. I listen to it when I need a moment of peace and tranquility. It would be the first song uploaded to my iPod!

  183. Allison Barnes says:

    Looks like a great party! You are a great hostess! You always do a great job with all the little details.
    I would download David Archelletta “Crush”.
    I am going to try to come up in November!
    ALlison

  184. halloweenheather says:

    I would download Green Day’s Good Riddance…..and then go crazy finding lots of other fun music to listen to. What happy mail you received…AWESOME. And congratulations and best wishes to Jenna.

  185. What a fun gift idea! I really loved the “favorites” game–that’s cool! And your food looks yummy!

  186. I would put Elton John’s Crocodile Rock on because its always made me happy and it would be a great song to dance to with my three girls…we usually do a ‘dance-off’ after dinner and they love fast-paced songs!
    Thanks!

  187. I would download my favorite song ever…”Steady As We Go” by Dave Matthews Band.

  188. Do It Anyway – Martina McBride. Great Message.

  189. Thanks for the info on the Favorites game – sounds great!
    I’d download, “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra. I just love that song. It reminds me of when my husband and I were dating 10 years ago. It’s hard to believe so many memories could be wrapped into a song,
    Thanks, Karen U

  190. Yikes! So many good songs. I’d probably download something from Journey – reminds me of my son.

  191. Oh, what a fun day!! I would download John Mayer’s new song “Free Falling”. Just heard him in concert last week and it was awesome!
    Thanks!

  192. Hmmmm. . . I think ‘Dancing Queen’ from the Mamma Mia soundtrack! :)

  193. Hi Stacy!
    If I won the Ipod, the first song I’d download would be “Leave out all the rest” by Linkin Park. Either that or “What I’ve Done” by Linkin Park. Good, good songs.

  194. Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Deep Blue Something. When it comes on the radio I always smile big and sing along. It takes me back to college :)

  195. maureen wildauer says:

    Oh my goodness…. could there be any more goodness than a brand new ipod in blue…my favorite color too! How sweet of you to give it away here. Can’t wait til Tuesday. Have a fun and safe trip to South Africa.
    maureen

  196. Anything Keith Urban…I Told You So. I would love one of these to use while working out, then maybe I’d actually workout more.

  197. sandra owens says:

    Wow!!! What a generous offer!!! I would down load Red Umbrella by Faith Hill.

  198. If that Nano comes my way, I’ll be download Gira con Me sung by Josh Groban…love that song!

  199. I have loved Miss Jenna since the very day she was born. I’d download something like “Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam” because she has always seemed like a Sunbeam to me in her fun blended family – she has been a glue of sorts that has blessed each and everyone…and that way I could remember Jenna every time it played. Congrats Miss Jenna and we love your handsome groom also.

  200. Oh, how do I pick just one? I guess I would have to start with “our song” (mine and my husbands) by Alison Krauss “When You Say Nothing At All.” Then the list would go on and on from there. Thanks for sharing! I love reading your blog. You always have such fun things!

  201. Hi Stacy. The first song I would download is Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd. It was my wedding song over 12 years ago and still sends shivers down my spine as it is perfect for me and my husband, Jason. It sounds like everyone had a great time at the shower! Thanks for a chance to win the nano.

  202. Kathryn marks says:

    My first downloaded song would be John Lennon’s Woman. It always reminds me of my first love.
    Cheers
    Kathryn

  203. Ooohhhh… my first song downloaded will probably be “All I Want to Do” by Sugarland… and then it will become an anniversary gift for my husband.

  204. I hosted a “favorites” party with some girlfriends earlier this year – it was a BLAST! That’s a great idea to adapt it for a shower. If I should be so lucky, I’d download “On The Radio” by Regnia Spektor.

  205. Viva la Vida by Coldplay. I love that song!

  206. Joy Cushing says:

    I am a tad superstitious, so for good luck I would download “The Dance” performed by Garth Brooks. It is the song I listen to when I want to remember my grandparents that are no longer with us and it is a great reminder to live life and embrace all that it has to offer.

  207. The favorites game is such a great idea. I’m going to incorporate that into the next shower I have. How fun!!! Now about the ipod nano – I’d love to have one. I may be the last person I know who doesn’t have one yet. I also don’t have the latest Coldplay cd yet so maybe viva la vida.

  208. The favorites game is such a great idea. I’m going to incorporate that into the next shower I have. How fun!!! Now about the ipod nano – I’d love to have one.

    I would upload Apocalyptica’s (w/ the singer from 3 Days Grace) “I Don’t Care”

  210. The favorites game is such a great idea. I’m going to incorporate that into the next shower I have. How fun!!! Now about the ipod nano – I’d love to have one.

  211. That’s easy – I’d download the entire new Coldplay album. I’ve been really wanting to get it for a while now.
    B
    P.S. – don’t you love that shade of blue?

  212. Kathy Reid says:

    I would download “Creepin’ In” by Norah Jones and Dolly Parton. That favorites game is such a good idea. How fun!

  213. pick me pick me….RED RED WINE by UB40, would be my 1st song, thanks

    I would download “I Can Only Imagine” by Mercy Me

  215. nomad scrapper says:

    An ipod would be great fun. Then I could download all of Stacy’s great messages from her BPS classes and listen to them while I walk (wink wink). I would download the entire August Rush soundtrack, b/c I loved the music in that movie.

  216. My first download would be Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond!

  217. I’m thinking I would put “Better Together” by Jack Johnson…saw him in concert last week and he was FABULOUS live!

  218. janalee smith says:

    How cool is that something BLUE!!!

  221. anne leglise says:

    If I am the lucky winner of ipod blue, the first song I’ll download will be Ti Amo by Umberto Tozzi.
    A happy trip to you and thanks for sharing your ipod.

  222. I love the “favorites” idea for a party…a great way to share and connect with each other.
    I would download “Oh What Do You Do in the Summertime” as a great reminder of a “season of joy” that just ended in my life. Don’t we all need roses in winter?
    Thanks for sharing.

  223. I think that apple has created the neatest thing ever with the ipod. My kids have nanos and I would love one. They are so small that you can take them anywhere.
    I would download the entire Chris Daughtry album. His voice is amazing.

  224. How sweet of you to give it away! :) I would probably download the whole Seussical album. My daughter took part in a summer camp this year where they did part of the musical. We are all having a blast listening to the songs and I would love to share them all with my kids.

  225. young chang-miller says:

    I want the nano!!!! I’ve been dying to get one, but haven’t had the fun money to do it – pick me! The first song i would download: ‘Sleepless’ by Kate Havnevik, played on Grey’s Anatomy and a great song!

  226. If I am the lucky winner the first song I will down load is Breathe by Rebecca St. James.
    I hope you have a wonderful trip!

  227. The food looks delish! Must be those years you put in in France in the 90′s learning to be a female chef. Hahaha!
    Song for me — C’Mon, Get Happy by the Partridge Family. :)

  228. Hi Stacy–
    I would download “We Are Man & Wife” by Michelle Featherstone. This would also be the perfect song if Jenna is still looking for a “first dance” song with her new husband. I love it!
    erin

  229. OMG I would kill for this!! How cool!!!! I would have it loaded up completely right away, but the first song I’d probably put on it is Viva la Vida by Coldplay. I’m loving that song right now!
    Andi

  230. OK this is one of the coolest giveaways EVER!!!! I think I would put “Blessed” by Martina McBride. It really describes how I feel about my life and the wonderful blessings that have been given to me. And I will definitely be using the “favorites” game at the next shower I throw.

  231. Hi Stacy….what perfect timing. I just had my nano stolen in Vegas. Tip: Never forget that you left your Nano in the glove compartment when you have your car Valet Parked!!!
    I would so love to win this! I would download “Brown Eyed Girl” because it’s one of my favorite songs and it makes me happy!
    Congratulations to Jenna!
    Karen

  232. It sounds so dorky but I cant get the latest Kid Rock song, “All Summer Long” out of my head. It reminds me of the music of my youth and makes me want to open the windows and sing out loud with the radio blasting. Thanks for such a generous opportunity…

  233. I would definately download
    “Love Remains the Same” by Gavin
    Rosdale.
    LOVE love love it.
    The blue nano color it so cute.
    What a great gift idea!

  234. I will download “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey! I don’t have my own ipod yet! What a fun shower idea…3 favorites! Gotta try that soon!

  235. That favorites game is a great idea!
    And the first song I would download is the Rihanna song that sample Tainted Love. I love that!
    And the song that is played during the ad for Mercenaries II on TV. It is like a rap but has a repeating “Oh no, you didn’t” thing going on the background. The kids know all the lyrics and even I do now.

  236. Nancy Peacock says:

    Kreesha Turner’s “Don’t Call Me Baby Anymore” is her first recording and I’m surprised how much I like her CD. Kreesha lives next door to us, so I’m happy that I can honestly say I’d enjoy loading her CD onto my Ipod! A few songs on the CD have already gone “gold”!

  237. Sounds like a fabulous shower. The food looked beautiful. I’m sure Jenna and your guests were surprised by the gifts and fun! The first song I would download on the blue ipod would be my son, Sam, playing one of his college violin audition pieces. It would probably be Praeludium and Allegro by Kreisler. I love hearing him play violin.

  238. the first song would (will? positive thinking!) have to be… a song i don’t know the name of my Aberlin.. it has the line in it ” i want to be your last first kiss” and i LOVE that idea! Good one for Jenna :)

  239. I would download “Somebody to love” by Queen–it is just a turn up the radio and sing song to me–loved it in the movie Enchante(I think that was the movie with Anne Hathaway?–I am having a brain cramp–I have been overstimulated from CE this weekend) By the way we missed you at CE in Phx–but loved Collette Hall–she is amazing–big picture is lucky to have her teaching and i am looking forward to learning more from her.

  240. I’d download “Don’t Look Back” by Antigone Rising. It’s my favorite song right now.

  241. Angela Williams says:

    I would download “There Goes My Life” by Kenny Chesney. Makes me bawl everytime I hear it. I always have to hug my daughter. She just rolls her eyes, but she’s 12 so she does that about everything anyway :-)

  242. “ladybug picnic” by elizabeth mitchell b/c it’s my girl’s favorite song right now and if it’s not stuck in my head I would be lonely! :)
    great giveaway!

  243. I would download my wedding song Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

  244. Nicole Mantooth says:

    I have wanted an ipod for some time now and just didn’t want to spend the extra money on myself.
    The first song I would download would be a song from Natasha Bettingfield (I think I spelled that wrong), anyways. The song is unwritten. Basically it says that your life is unwritten for tomorrow and you are building your story each day that you live it. I love that.
    Good idea for wedding ideas. Thanks. We are planning our wedding right now.

  245. What a fun idea for a shower! I would download the song “Shine” by the Newsboys! A great pick me up and inspiring song…

  246. Heather Lynne says:

    I would download Strawberry Swing by Coldplay.
    P.S This makes a great background song for an iMovie!

  247. I’d download David Cook’s song! He’s so talented… love that he won Idol this year. Can’t wait for the entire album.
    That is so cool you are sharing this iPod with someone!!

  248. As the only one in the house that doesn’t have an iPod, I definitely have to get that blue one (if I’m not lucky enough). What great ideas for a wedding shower (going to file those away). First song would be “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole…is it too early for Christmas?

  249. LOVE LOVE LOVE that shower idea! I can picture it working well for bday parties and even baby showers as well!!!
    Now, if I were to win that fabu lil blue nano, the first song I would put on it would probably me Defy Gravity from WICKED the musical. Have you seen it yet? ALLLL the songs from that show are beyond amazing :)

  250. Susanne Hampton says:

    I would download Beautiful Boy( Darling Boy) by John Lennon because my beautiful boy just started kindergarten on Tuesday.

  251. well, speaking of wedding songs… I think I would download “This will be an everlasting love” by Natalie Cole. You might recognize this song from the match.com commercials… well, we picked this as our recessional as we walked down the asile together happily married. Little did we know, we’d be hearing this song on tv all the time! But I love it. It’s such a fun way to end a wedding ceremony! :)

  252. Great gift to get in the mail. How do I get on that mailing list. LOL.
    I’d first download Lain’s podcasts which would be great to listen to on the go.
    http://knitandpurlgrrl.blogs.com/scraphappy/

    If I were to win (oh please pick me!), the first song I would download would be Pocketful of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield.
    Have a safe trip to Africa! I can’t wait to see some of your pictures!

  254. First song – gotta be our wedding song, “Every River” by Runrig (Scottish band – well I am Scottish!!)Because? This lyric:
    Now the years hold no fears, like the wind they pass over
    Loved, forgiven, washed, saved
    Every river I try to cross
    Every hill I try to climb
    Every ocean I try to swim
    Every road I try to find
    All the ways of my life
    I’d rather be with you
    There’s no way
    Without you
    .. and 12yrs on – still true. Hope Jenna’s marriage is as fulfilling as ours! xx

  255. I would buy “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!” I noticed that I’m lacking that song and it’s such a good pick me up!

  256. I’ve bookmarked this post, such wonderful shower ideas I definitely will use soon! Thank you!
    first, i would start uploading my 25 most played songs from my iTunes and on top of that list is Jack Johnson with ‘Better Together’.
    Thanks for sharing!

  257. What cute ideas! If I had a Nano, the 1st song I would download is Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cindi Lauper. I know it is old, but my sisters & I used to watch the movie over & over & over…… and it brings back good memories!

  258. I love the favorites game idea, thanks for sharing, I am definitely going to remember that. The first song I would download would be 1234 by Feist. This is the catchy tune from the the ipod commercial. The song just makes me smile and want to move to the music. I would dance around my family room in awe that I would actually have my own ipod! I am sure the kids would get a laugh out of that : )

  259. What a lovely box to get in the mail. Love the photos you did get = especially the one of Addie and Jenna, you can see they have a good bond.
    As for the song I’d download, I think it would have to be Everybody Hurts by R.E.M – one of my favourites.

    Enjoy your trip to South Africa. Save travels. Take lots of pictures!

    Robin

  263. The first song I would download is Forever in Blue Jeans by Neil Diamond, because I just love Neil Diamond and he makes me happy!!!

  264. I LOVE the idea of the favourites party. I would download Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen…..I love the energy of that song.

  265. hi there, i hope that you have a wonderful expericence in south africa. my first song that i would download would be for my 4 year old little boy You Got A Friend In Me from the movie Toy Story! He loves that song and sings it all day everyday we just dont have anything to put it on.

    Stacy :-)

  268. I would download “In the Mood” by Glenn Miller as that is such a romantic old song..Love it.

    Paula

  269. I would download Everything by Michael Buble – such a great song! Love the shower ideas!

  270. Okay..don’t laugh cause I’m old (48) and would download “All Summer Long” by Kid Rock. It really takes me back to my teen years haning at the lake.

  271. Josh Groban ~ it would be anything by him, but probably “You’re Still You”. One of my absolute favorite songs ever!

  272. Oh my goodness!! I’ve been wanting an iPod for a couple years now, but somehow money keeps getting spent on food and clothes instead ;)
    I’d download “You Never Let Go” by Matt Redman. The kids and I both love that song, and it’s such a wonderful reminder

  273. I downloaded Casting Crowns What this world needs. Love all their songs! My ipod has made my early morning walks lots more fun.

  274. heather jarrett says:

    I really want the Mercy Me CD. It’s not new, but I would like the whole thing instead of just one song.

  275. I love the shower theme…so cool. And that trifle looks delicious. I have never made that before…will you share the recipe?
    My first song to download should i win(please, please pick me) will be Piano song by Meiko….actually her whole album ;P love, love, lover her.
    Have a fun and safe trip.
    Susan

  276. Kimberly Sacks says:

    I think the shower theme is the pest idea I’ve seen in a long time for a shower!
    My boyfriend’s cousin is getting married next year in October (we were just at her engagement party yesterday) and I will have to mention it to her sister.
    What a creative way to help the new couple start off with some cool items!
    I would love to win the blue iPod nano, as well, I love the color! Who wouldn’t want to add a little music to their life?
    Thanks Stacey!
    -Kim

  278. Michelle Salazar says:

    What a great moment in time for all you! I love the shower idea and will use it because that is a very cool thing to do with girlfriends.
    I would put Peaceful easy feelings by the Eagles because that is our song on the Ipod first after I figured out how to do that! LOL

  279. What a fun shower and what a fun pkg in the mail! My first song to load on the nano would be “Love Me” by Colin Ray. Absolutely my fav song which tears me up everytime I hear it!

I am thinking that I may have to invest in a new computer… Hmmmm. I do like Apples!HEHE! One thing I do for my brides is send them a CD that I have made about three weeks before the wedding with “getting Ready music” and a little note telling them how excited I am to spend the day with them. It is always a pleaser! But an Apple Nano is another cute idea too. Thanks!

I’ve been meaning to have my hubby (the music guru) find it for me and burn a favorites CD. He owns almost a thousand CD’s and everyone asks him if he could use and ipod or other such device. He doesn’t want one the crazy man. No one asks if I’d like one.

  365. hmmm…so hard to pick just one song. Right now I am loving “hands on a miracle” by the Foo Fighters. So special as I am just a new mom. Thanks for this fun giveaway! I thought I was the only one left in the US without an ipod!

  366. What?! I don’t have an ipod and must be the last person on earth not to. My first song would be “Shine” by the Pawn Shop kings, an amazing folksy bluesy group (http://www.myspace.com/pawnshopkings) that I love.

  374. Really in the mood for some Van Morrison……

  375. I love Apple products! What a cool present for Jenna! I think the first song I would put on my iPod is Lift Me Up by Kate Voegele. It’s a beautiful song.

    The first song I would download is Etta James “At Last”. It’s a classic and what better song to walk to while out on a chilly fall morning! Good luck to me!

  384. What an awesome idea for a shower game. Love the idea of everyone bringing a favorite something. Will remember it for future reference. And giving away an ipod! I just finally got a real desktop in March so needless to say I don’t have and never have had an ipod. First song I’d download on it? Come on get Higher by Matt Nathanson.

    The first song I would download would be “Last Name” by Carrie Underwood…LOVE that song!!

  430. Just yesterday, I was in a room with 20 other people and someone asked. Who here does not have an IPOD? My husband and I and only 2 more people raised their hand! Is that sad especially when you’re just 32? That would be cool to win. You would love the first song I would download: Title: So simple from Album: Beautiful Awakening by Stacie Orrico.

    Eileen

  436. You are so generous to offer this to one of us!

  437. I would love a BLUE ipod- how cute! I would download something by James Taylor- I love his music!

  438. What a wonderful offer – I was just commenting how I would love an ipod. My first song – “no woman, no cry” by Bob Marley. Your post reminded me of it – no crying for Jenna!

  443. How exciting to win an iPOD since I don’t even have one. What’s crazy is that a friend gave me an iPOD docking station last Christmas (thinking I was cool and would have an iPOD:). I think the first song I would download would be “At Last”. LOVE THAT SONG.

  444. My first song would be Communication Breakdown – Led Zeppelin. It doesn’t get any better than the classics!

  445. The first song I would download would be “want to” by Sugarland. Its about friends falling in love together, new love and young love. A great beginning song. This song completely takes me back to when I first fell in love with my husband.

    The first thing I would download would be Calambria. That’s the really cool song they play in the Target ad with the dorm room. Love it!

  447. I would download “Just Stand Up (To Cancer),” one of the best “fight songs” you can imagine…and not just for cancer survivors. An excellent motivator to get your butt in gear and live your life to the fullest.

  448. FABULOUS! And you are a Mac-Apple lover too!! Too good to be true! Anyway, I would likely download an opera (yep, the entire thing) or one of the hundreds of songs on my TBL (to be listened (to) list. I’m a musician, so the list is endless and loooooooooooooooooooooong.
    Gosh, as if I needed one more reason to love your blog! :-)

  449. The first song I would place on this iPod would be Michael Buble’s “Everything” – soon followed by more Buble :0) R

  450. Hi Stacey,
    Love your blog! First song I would down load is “No Ordinary Love” by Toby Mac YEAH!

  451. This is so sweet. Sweet of Apple, sweet of you and sweet something blue. I love it. It might be my new gift for ‘special to my heart’ brides. Thanks for sharing. Now, pick me!! Oh yeah, and my first song that I would download would be One Love by Bob Marley.

  452. How sweet to send you that!! Wow! Lucky girl! Even sweeter that you are “paying it forward”!
    I think the first song I would download is “She’s Everything” by Brad Paisely

  453. Kim Heggins says:

    What a cool idea…the first song I would download is “There goes my Hero” by the Foo Fighters. Thanks for the chance to win!

  454. We are an Apple family, and I keep telling my hubby we need to up and move clear across the country (we’re East Coast) to Cupertino so that he can be nearer his first true love, Apple! Seriously, he is the guy standing in Best Buy that people just assume works there, because he’s explaining what’s cool about the newest Apple product to anyone who’ll listen. My hubby, gotta love him. Anyway…the first song I would download would be “Handlebars” by the Flobots, because it is definitely one of the coolest songs out there now, and it will probably end up in an Apple commercial in the near future. Thanks for the chance!

  455. I think for me, right now, it would be something Elton John. Don’t ask me why, it’s just my current “mood”!

  456. Jack Johnsons Angel. One of the best love songs!!

  457. Kristen Huta says:

    Love all of your ideas. I would load Joshua Kadison “Beautiful in my Eyes”.

  458. I would upload Chasing Pavements by Adele first. I really like that song! That is such a sweet package you received. Yummy!

  459. I would download a switchfoot song. I am really digging their music lately
    btw: your blog header and the strawberry dessert in this post are making me very very hungry. Ouch! I am getting mental calories just looking!

  460. Thanks so much, Stacy – totally cool of you to pass the Nano on!!
    Gotta say – i’m a total 100%, card-carrying dork. First song i’d download would be ANYTHING by Donny Osmond…because even 30 years after i first saw him, i STILL love him.
    The Husband knows. He deals with it.

  461. I would put the song Stacy used as a theme song for her Glimpses album. I can’t remember the name but it puts a smile on my face and relaxes me everytime I hear it.

  462. motherbear says:

    I would have 2 say Don’t go by billy ray and his daughter miley. I think of my sweet baby girl everytime i hear it. She left in May and joined the navy.

  463. That is an awesome giveaway!
    The first song I would download is Michael Buble’s “Home”. I love his voice and the song touches me in a different way every time I hear it.

  464. What an awesome idea for a wedding gift!! Love it! I would say my first download would have to be Shine for You by Hillsong United.

  465. I really want the Heidi Newfield song ‘Johnny and June’, but alas, they do not have it on Canadian itunes yet.

  466. I don’t have an ipod and would love one . . . especially one in my favorite color. I would download Cinderella by Stephen Curtis Chapman. This one brings tears to my eyes every time . . . especially after he lost his baby girl. It makes me think about living in the moment. especially the line, “When the clock strikes midnight, she’ll be gone.” Makes me want to drink in every moment I can with my kids.

  467. “When You Say Nothing At All” – Allison Kraus and Union Station. Because it is a great song; she has a beautiful voice; and sometimes someone just has to shout out for Bluegrass bands.

  468. Awesome! Very generous of you to offer this to your readers. Love your blog and my friends & I hope to see you at CKC Seattle! I would download O.A.R’s “Shattered”.

  469. Hmmm, I would download the song(s) from the soundtrack to “Zoom” a crash and burn movie with “Tim the ToolmanTaylor of Home Improvement” silly, huh? But there’s a reason. I already paid for the music at Christmas time to make a surprise playlist for my son because he and his brother watched the movie repeatedly, but my connection was so slow it wouldn’t work. I was so sad then but so hopefu now.

  470. I would download Bring the Rain by Mercy Me. I absolutely love this song.

  471. I would download “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong. Because despite everything going on in the world today, if we stop and listen to the lyrics, we really do live in a wonderful world, created by our wonderful Creator.
    Thanks for the chance to win, Stacey! :)

  472. I will download natalie grants held BEAUTIFUL song!!!

  473. My wedding song, That Means So Much, by ZZ Hill. Still one of my favorite, all-time songs, after 18 years. :)

  474. I would download Blue Moon. Why? Because it’s blue (of course) and because it is the song my husband sung to me at my wedding. Only appropriate to have on my very first ipod.

  475. Okay, the first song I would download would be Mirah – “The Garden”. I am a huge So You Think You Can Dance fan and that was my favorite dance this season. Everytime that I hear that song I can “see” the dance in my head and it just makes me happy!
    I also love the idea for the bridal shower and I am going to use it for sure at my friend’s upcoming shower!

  476. I would download “Every Moment” by Joy williams…introduced to me by YOU in LOM. Love that song and its message.

  477. I would put “Come on get Higher” by Matt Nathanson as my first song!

  478. So here is a very dorky, teeny bopper choice, but the beat makes me happy. It’s Jesse Mccartney’s Leavin’. You are too cool to do this for your readers! Thanks!

  479. I would download Blue Moon. Why? Because it’s blue (of course) and because it is the song my husband sang to me at our wedding reception. Very appropriate to have on my very first ipod.

  480. My current favorite song is “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz

  481. I would download “It’s Good To Be Us” by Bucky Covington because I would feel so lucky to be me if I won! (and this is a rockin song!) How generous of you to give this away… thanks for the chance to win :-)
    Darcy – Ellisville, MO

  482. I’m going to download the rest of Ingrid Michaelson’s cd, Be Ok, come October :) I had to download the single already…

  483. Marlyn Gelb says:

    The Rainbow Connection sung by Sarah McLachlan. Yes the Kermit song but without the frog voice!

  484. Kelli Ingram says:

    I would have to download the new Jason Mraz CD. My two year old daughter loves to dance to his music (and I love it too!)

  485. I would download “You are so beautiful to me” by Joe Cocker. This was our wedding song 23 years ago and still makes me smile every time I hear it.

  486. Nicole in Oregon says:

    I would definitely pick “God Blessed the Broken Road” which is the song my husband and I danced to at our wedding reception and is our favorite love song for each other!
    Thanks for giving us this chance to win Stacy!

  487. I will download Any Dream Will Do from Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Love that!

  488. Hmm, I’d have to say some Alanis, since one of my littles broke one of my fav discs of hers.

  489. Too cool!
    I would have to download ‘If You’re Goin’ Through Hell’. In case you’re not a country fan, that song says: ‘If you’re goin’ through hell, keep on goin’, don’t slow down, if you’re scared don’t show it. You might get out ‘fore the devil even knows you’re there.’
    That song always reminds my of my 8 year old’s *successful* battle with cancer. It’s an upbeat song, but I always cry when I sing along!

  490. I would download the new song by Kid Rock!! My husband I attend his concert a few years ago, and each time we hear a Kid Rock song we smile at each other… and brings out the “kid” in each of us :-)

  491. I would download Kid Rock’s Alabama because it reminds me of this summer.

  492. I would have to download “Happy Girl” by Martina McBride. Even if I don’t win, it’s how I feel about my life anyway!

    Thanks for being so generous.

  494. I would instantly download Let My Love Open the Door by Pete Townshend. Love this song!

  495. I would download “Never Alone” by Jim Brickman / Lady Antebellum. Such a sweet sweet song. http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoID=1893041507

  496. It would have to be the new cd by Jason Mraz. His music is just so upbeat and fun, and some of it reminds me of my honeymoon to Hawaii three years ago. It just gives off a totally laid-back vibe that I miss from the islands!

  497. My first song would be Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

  498. Oh my goodness! I wish I could get on that Apple mailing list! My first soung would be Steven Curtis Chapman’s Cinderella. I cried every time I heard that song before his beautiful Maria passed away. Now, it reminds me (1) what an awesome priviledge and responsibility I have in my 3 kids and (2) what an amazing guy SCC is — the way he’s shared their story of loss with the world and at the same time sharing their faith.

  499. My first song would be Come Home soon by SHeDAISY. My fiance is in Afghanistan and I stop whatever I am doing and say a prayer every time I hear this song. – Susan

  502. Most definitely, “I’ll Melt With You” by Modern English. Love the “Something Blue” idea!

  503. I would download Clint Black’s “It’s Something that We Do” or Paul Davis’ “Sweet Life.” Good music from our early years. Thanks for the fun contest.

  504. Too many songs that I would want to download right away. The first would be “Don’t” by Billy Currington. Thanks for the oppertunity to win! Your Blog Rocks.

  515. jennifer harmon says:

    If I were to be chosen to receive the beautiful blue ipod the first song I would download would be You Lift me Up by Josh Groban for my beautiful 15 year old son whom we just had to place in a nursing home. He loves music and I would take the ipod to the nursing home and equip him with speakers so he could listen to all the music he loves so much.

  516. what a cool updated, something blue!!!!!
    The first song I would down load would be…… are you kidding! I couldn’t just pick or down load just ONE. I guess I’ll just have to let you know what I did download after I win that pretty blue ipod

  517. I would download ‘Two Princes’ by the Spin Doctors….always been one of my favorite sing-it-out-loud-in-the-car-songs!!
    Thanks for the opportunity!!! :)

  518. Hi Stacy! You are so awesome and I love all your fabulous ideas. I think the song I would download would be “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack.

  519. that is why you are SO cool. not only do you receive a free ipod in the mail just for being”stacy julian” — but then you decide to GIVE IT AWAY on your blog. i know you have a house full of boys who would no doubt love a new ipod, but you are being unselfish and generous and lovely. you are a true example.
    i would download “all-american girl” by carrie underwood for my sweet daughter.

  520. What a fun celebration and memory for all of you.
    OK – ipod. I would download True Love Ways – the song I danced to at my wedding 20 years ago. And then… I would give it to my Mom who is somewhat housebound since my dad fell ill. She is techno-challenged and apple makes such fun easy to use things that anyone can learn!
    Happy Fall Stacy!
    Helen from Canada ;)

  521. It would be Don’t Blink by Kenny Chesney. I have been loving this song mostly because it reminds me to stay in the moment and enjoy my kids instead of always tryign to rush.

  526. What a very generous offer! Thank you for keeping it interesting!
    My first song would be: My Maria, by Brooks and Dunn. I have probably listened to this song more than a thousand times and it still makes me smile, for no particular reason, and sing loudly right along with it. (Hence, not allowed out of the house with said My Maria and a headset.)
    Have a SAFE trip!

  527. What a fun package you got in the mail. I have heard of the favorites party, and I think it would be sooo fun!

    Thanks Stacy!
    Tanya

  534. Pass it on down by Alabama is one of my very favorites. But really any Alabama tune would do. I guess you could say I’m a country girl at heart.

  535. i’m pretty sure the first song i would download would be the fishin’ song by brad paisley…it was our first dance song 6 years ago and it always makes me laugh!!!

  536. What an awesome gift! I would probably load “Thank You” by the Katinas.

  537. I would choose “Stand” by Rascal Flatts because I want to always remember that it is important for me to stand up for what I believe.

  538. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You

  539. God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood. Yes it is an old song, but whenever I feel frustrated with something that happens in the US, I like to listen to it and it makes me recomit my love for our country. I am so glad I live in the USA.

  540. Hum, what song???
    My all-time favorites are:

    David Gray/ Babyalon(I don’t think I am spelling it correct)
    Lisa in DE

  543. The first song I would put on it would definitely have to be a Jonas Brothers song. We saw them in concert a few weeks ago and all of their songs make me happy.

  544. What a great gift idea for the bride ! You are so sweet ! My daugher and hubby have iPOD’s but being very budget-conscious, I have not bought one for myself. If I were to win this one, the first song I would add would be “Shower the People” by James Taylor. Thanks Stacy; I love your blog !

    i would download my favorite song from aaron schust…my savior, my god…best lyrics ever.

  556. What a fun give-away! Thanks! I would download Stephen Curtis Chapman’s “Cinderella” first! I LOVE that song. My sister just got married, and I was so hoping she’d pick that song for her daddy-daughter dance. She didn’t, but I always think of my dad when I hear it. (And of course I always cry when I think about what happened to that family.) It’s such a beautiful song!

  557. Renee' Hicks says:

  563. Actually — I wouldn’t be loading any songs on it. Like you, I’d be passing on the gift to my sweet Niece who is getting married in October. On second thought, I’d load her wedding play list on it. Fun fun fun.

  565. Cami Haveman says:

  567. Melissa McAllister says:

    I’d first download Pride (In the Name of Love) by U2. Thanks for the giveaway! -Melissa

  568. I would download Love Song by Sarah Bareilles. Though I know this is not necessarily a happy ‘love song’ it reminds me that I need to show my husband I love him everyday and not get so busy with life that he has to ask me.

  569. i would put on Lonestars . . .”Let Them Be Little” . . . love this song as it is so very true.

  570. Cristi Quirion says:

  574. stampinwithbeth says:

I think I would probably download a Joni Mitchell song – maybe “The Circle Game”, as I just brought my baby back to college for her junior year, and besides loving all of Joni’s songs, this would would fit my mood right now – a bit melancholic for how fast time goes bye, and to also remind me to enjoy each step of the way!
    Thanks for being so generous,
    hugs from Michigan – Diane

  582. Just the Way You Are–Billy Joel

  583. That is so awesome, Love me some apple gadgets. I would put…Bring’n sexy back, Justin Timberlake.

  584. You are such a blessing to so many people, thank you.
    I would download “in Chhrist Alone”
    I am trying to learn all the words.
    Thank you

  585. Jeannette Scofield says:

    “Let’s Get Married” by The Proclaimers.
    Lots of sentimental value for us.
    You are VERY generous.

  586. Tess Davis says:

    Didn’t have to think twice…I’d download “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by the Proclaimers. This is my all-time favorite song for making me feel happy, happy, happy! :) Tess

  587. Love it! I would download What a Wonderful World – our first dance and the song we put our daughter’s first year memories DVD to.

  588. One of my favorite, make me feel happy, songs is Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

  589. My newest favorite (but yet to be downloaded) is New Soul by Yael Naim.

  590. I would download the “Across the Universe” soundtrack, especially Joe Cocker’s version of “Come Together”

  591. Kerri Norrod. says:

    I would download Dancing Queen by Abba. It is such a fun song!

  592. I would put the song Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis. My husband and I just celebrated our 20 year anniverary on August 27th. That song was played at our reception for our first dance. Wow, I have not heard that song for along time. It would be wonderful to have an Ipod so I could download my all time favorite songs that bring back so many wonderful memories in my life.

  593. i’ll check the list and then pick my song! i never know the names of my favorites until someone else tells me!

  594. Shania Twain’s FROM THIS MOMENT is a heart stopper! :)

  595. Christy Pair says:

    How Beautiful by Twila Paris- the song played at my wedding! Speaking of bawling…..

  596. “Don’t Fear the Reaper”, ’cause we all need MORE COWBELL.

  597. Wendy Baker says:

    I would have to pick something mellow right now… maybe old Billy Joel or some old love song..

  598. You are awesome for giving the Ipod Nano away!
    First song I will put on it will be OneRepublic’s Say (All I Need)

  599. You are too sweet, Stacy! The shower looks like so much fun. My first song would probably be something by Matchbox 20 or Rob Thomas. Something besides Little People songs might be fun. lol Have a great week!

  600. If I had a IPod Nano the first song I would download would be Dancing Queen. It is such and fun song and it makes me what to DANCE!(which I never do). It also reminds me of my two best friends that I only see once or twice a year. Makes me want to go listen to it now!
    Thanks,
    Kim

  601. Wow – how very cool! First song? “I Love You”…..a song written and sung for me by my son, when he was 22, a couple of years ago. Made me bawl!!!! He sings about me being his “guardian angel” when he was going through a very depressing time in his life. Love that kid and so glad I “saved his life”.

  602. Better Together by Jack Johnson!

  603. okay, I’ve given it some thought. Coldplay’s, Viva la Vida. Love that song. Would love an ipod. I’m soooo behind the times…
    very cool idea for a shower. i’m aboslutely going to use that some time. Already thinking it would be a fun holiday get together with friends.
    favorite things gift exchange.
    love it!

  604. Sweet Caroline – Neil Diamond for my Sweet Caroline – first born , a song we both love to sing along too :)

  605. I think my husband would pod-nap and mp3 player that came into my house, so I would have to quickly christen it with something he would never want to listen to of the country music variety. Probably Carrie Underwood

  606. i would put “Good Things” by the BoDeans on an ipod. i don’t have one and have been convincing myself i don’t need one for over a year now. It’s just something i really haven’t been able to afford…but if i won one, well, that sure would be a “good thing”!
    -Amy

  607. Lynne Moore says:

    Oh, what a great idea and so generous. I love the favorites game too. Neat, neat, neat. I could use a new iPod as I have my 16-year old’s hand me down. It sometimes can’t be turned off and so I am afraid to play it on a plane…what if they kick me off the plane on my way to celebrate my 20th anniversary with my husband in the Bahamas? Really! We are going in December. So in honor of that event, I would download Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight” (our song) as the iPods very first song.

  608. In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

  609. Trace Adkins: Your Gonna Miss This.
    If you want to have a good cry. Listen to this one.
    So very sweet and makes you appreciate all stages in life.

  610. I had to really think to remember what it was. It was “This Woman’s Work” by Kate Bush. I loved this song the first time it came out from the movie “she’s having a baby” way back when. But, I still love it, so true when I was in the hospital with my twins five years ago with some major complications.
    Thanks for the opportunity Stacy!

    Thanks for the opportunity Stacy!

  612. Kirstin Longson says:

    How fun! I would download “Bella’s lullaby” by Edward (from the twilight book series) Yes, it is out there and I don’t know who plays it – but I’ll find it on itunes I know!

  613. Maryann Vautrinot says:

    That’s so nice of you!! I would put Kenney Chesney’s “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven” on first! Have a safe, wonderful trip!!

  614. So cool…
    I never win these things, but hey… it’s fun to enter them!
    I’d download something… I mean anything by Jack Johnson….
    I would probably just buy the whole darn album on itunes and then download them in album order!
    Love the shower pics and tips!
    You never cease to amaze me!

  615. Hmmmm, probably I would download either Bon Jovi’s Make a Memory or Etta James’ At Last. And frankly, I’d probably download a TV show first. My nano is one of the old non-video ones so I’d be so excited to try that out!

  616. FUN! OK, the first song I would put on there (if you asking me TODAY and I think you are) is: Johnny and June.
    Pick me!
    Mandy

  617. My favorite song is Remember When by Alan Jackson – we played it at our 25th wedding anniversary/vow renewal ceremony. Just a fabulous song!

  618. I would download “We’re going to be friends” by Jack Johnson.It’s a sweet kids song that I have adopted from my children.So kind of you to do this!!!

  619. I would download “We’re Going to be Friends” by Jack Johnson…one of my kids’ songs that I adore and have adopted……..so kind of you to do this.

  620. Viva la Vida by ColdPlay – it was *our family* summer theme song this summer – kind of like “Can’t Touch This” was our theme song the summer we went to Hawaii and I was pregnant – I love marking a memory with a song :)

  621. Bubble Toes by Jack Johnson, silly song that just makes me smile.

  622. such a FUN story! i’d download “East to West”….or anything really, by Casting Crowns.

  623. American Soldier by Toby Keith

  624. It would be “Say” by John Mayer. I had an ipod, but it has been taken over by my children for movies, shows and their songs. I used to love going for a walk with it, but cannot stand anymore Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. : ) This would be mine, all mine!

  625. Honky Tonk Woman – my theme song from long ago and far away in another life. :)

  626. I think tha any song by New Buffalo would be put on the ipod first!
    Thanks for sharing with everyone.

  627. I think tha any song by New Buffalo would be put on the ipod first!
    Thanks for sharing with everyone.

  628. I think that anything by New Buffalo would be my first choice on the ipod.
    Thanks for sharing!

  629. I think it would be appropriate to download “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”. :)

  630. thanks for the chance stacy… i would download Pete Murray’s Happy Ground – from his new album Summer in Eureka. Hope I win…

  631. I think it would be “Color My World” by Chicago since that was a very popular wedding song from the 70′s when I got married. Almost to my 30th anniversary!

  632. I would download “Amazing Grace” by Chris Tomlin. Love it!
    Deanna

  633. I think it would be “Color My World” by Chicago since that was a very popular wedding song from the 70′s when I got married. Almost to my 30th anniversary!

  634. Closer to Fine by Indigo Girls!

  635. Kelly Butler says:

    Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton it holds great memories of a SO in my life.

  636. hmmm, I think I would download
    “Waterloo” by Abba because it is such a great song !
    love the blue color !
    -Laurie in Illinois

  637. Karen Neder says:

    I would download “Chelsey Morning” by Joni Mitchell. That song always makes me smile – I hope for a Chelsey Morning every morning…”And the sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses…”

  638. Tina Spieker says:

    Ordinary Miracle by Sarah McLachlan. Our first child is due in 2 weeks and my husband gets deployed to Africa in 1 week, so we’re hoping for a miracle of our own!

  639. The song that just delights my heart is a Christian worship song where various characters including the Smurfs sing their verison on hallelujah. There is just something incredibly happy about that song!

  640. “Come on Get Happy” by The Partridge Family. Kind of cheesy but I heard it the other day and it made me laugh. How could it not? It’d be my first song, for sure.

  641. I would download Hey There Delilah by Plain White T’s. How awesome is this?!?! How fun! Thanks for the opportunity to try and win this!

  642. Lorie Gomes says:

    1st one definitely would be…You’re Goina Miss This…by Trace Adkins. Absolutely love this song & it’s so true!

  643. Barb Daily says:

    Neil Diamond song! He is my favorite singer:)

  644. Michelle L. says:

    “Swith” by Will Smith.
    Nothing gets me in the groove better than this song. I play it to dance, workout, clean, or just to bust a move with my 3 boys.
    Also, love the “Favorites” idea! I will have to remember that one!

  645. Wow, what a cool gift to Jenna and a lucky reader! Wow, I would have to say that I would download “Come What May” from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. My husband and I choreographed our own little presentation to this song for our first dance just recently 6 years ago!!!!

  646. Hello!!! Who wouldn’t download MC Hammers Hammertime??? Only the best pick me up, push ya to the limit, groove in the mood song evah!!!!!!! You go girls!!!

  647. Christine Daly says:

    “One Love,” by Jordan Pruitt… I hear it on my kids’ favorite XM channel- Radio Disney- and I’m hooked!!!! Have a nice trip!!!

  648. “On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson. I like most of what he sings and that is just a really bouncy upbeat song. And, there goes Stacy- on the road again! How generous of you to give an i-pod away!

  649. I would down load Landside by Stevie Nicks. This song says so much about my life…..Listen to the words closely.

  650. Forever Young by Rod Stewart. I just created a layout of my sons this summer, and the title and the words to this song are going to finish the layout off. LOVE this song!!!!

  651. Ummm the first? Probably “So Close” from the movie Enchanted. Such a beautiful song, and it’s really touching my heart with some stuff that I’m going through right now. I think that so many relationships are “so close but still so far…” and just aren’t right and it’s so, so hard to let them go, even though you know it’s the right thing to do.

  652. I am loving “Time of my Life” by David Cook. It is so representative of my life right now. I am not where I expected myself to be. I said I would never be a stay at home Mom (I am), I would never be involved in PTA (I’m President), I would never watch other people’s children (I do after school), and the list goes on. Never is here, never is now and I am so grateful to be here and doing what I’m doing right now. I’m loving it!

  653. I would put “Love Today” by Mika! Just found out about him–so happy and fun!!

  654. Ummm the first? Probably “So Close” from the movie Enchanted. Such a beautiful song, and it’s really touching my heart with some stuff that I’m going through right now. I think that so many relationships are “so close but still so far…” and just aren’t right and it’s so, so hard to let them go, even though you know it’s the right thing to do.

  655. My husband came home the other day and asked if I had heard the new David Archuleta song because it was really good. Huh? This coming from my ‘classic rock’ hubby. So I listened to it and really liked it. So “Crush” would be the first song I would download.

  656. Since today is our 18th wedding anniversary, I would for sure download Michael Bolton’s “That’s what Love is all about”. The song my darling and I danced to at our wedding. How fun to remember that day.

  657. I would love to be on that mailing list!
    I would download “one step at a time” by Jordan Sparks. A hopeful song.

  658. I would download Sweet Home Alabama – that song always makes me happy!
    Susan

  659. I want a friend at Apple!
    My first song would be “The Nearness of You” (Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong). We danced to it at our wedding.
    “If you’ll only grant me the right
    To hold you ever so tight
    And to feel in the night
    the nearness of you”
    Still need to scrap that…
    P.S. That strawberry yumminess at the top made me HUNGRY.

  660. “I’m not going to write you a love song” because it cracks me up!
    Marion

  661. I would probably download “How Will She Know” from Enchanted. That song has been running through my head for weeks now!

  662. Shelby Austin says:

    Daydreamer by Adele is a great song, it would be first on my list

  663. Kris B. in Rochester, NY says:

    I would download Elvis Presley’s I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You because it was the song my husband and I wanted for “our” song at our wedding and the band told us “no problem” but at the actual wedding they said they never got the music and played “Close to You” by the Carpenters instead! Needless to say, we’ve always considered I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You OUR song and even 34 years later, everything stops for us to listen to it, whenever it comes on despite the fact it was never actually played at our wedding!

  664. Tim Mc Graw, “Live Like You Were Dying.” We should all definatly be appreciative of each and every moment we have with family and loved ones on this earth!

  665. Cheryl Smith says:

    I would download anything by Josh Groban. His voice goes straight to my heart. I especially like, You are Loved.

  666. Oh, I’d love an IPod Nano! I’d have to download Wherever You Will Go, by The Calling and The Reason by Hoobastank!! I never get tired of listening to both of these! Thanks Stacy!! :)

  667. AliciaH in Salem says:

    My song would be “Fountain of Sorrow” by Jackson Browne. I have loved this song since my teens. Thanks for making me take time to remember it!

  668. One song? That would be really hard! I think I would pick something by Jack Johnson since I really enjoy his music but don’t have any of it.

  669. Oh I wanna play – the very first song I downloaded was the whole album of Alicia Keys :D

  670. the first song i would download would be herb alpert ‘peanuts’ since i used to dance around the house to it as a girl and i would love to listen while i clean!

  671. I Can Only Imagine – by Mercy Me… just because it means more to me than any other song I know…even though I cry every time I hear it.

  672. What a fun gift! If only I had a wedding to do the same, but I wouldn’t trade the 13 years with my hubby though :-)
    I am a total 80′s junky and just watched Ferris Bueller’s day off. Which made me think of the bad Fine Young Cannibals… and thier song “Good Thing”. I would download this one first :-)

  673. Emma (ratqueen) says:

    I would put “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz – we just celebrated our ninth anniversary this week in spite of the expectation our families had that our love and our marriage wouldn’t last.
    This song is probably the sweetest love song I’ve heard in ages, and if I was doing it again I’d choose this.. even though we used Sinatra’s “Fly Me To The Moon.”

  674. The first song I downloaded was This is My Now by Jordin Sparks. She just won American Idol then. =)
    Ohh, I hope I have a friend at Apple too!!!

  675. “I Will Survive”
    My sweet husband gave me a Dell DJ years ago…which they no longer make and which nothing works with…so I’m dreaming of a Nano.
    Love the “favorites” exchange favors idea!

  676. Tracy Wallace says:

    Anything by Brandi Carlile – such a beautiful, raw voice.

  677. I’d like to say some really hip up to the minute song – but really it would be Big Red Car by the Wiggles – to keep my little girl Poppy smiling!

  678. michelle p. from spokane, wa says:

    Wow!! I think I’d download “Girls just wanna have fun” old school style by Cindy Lauper….ah so fun.

  679. FuN!! I would download Queen Latifah’s “I want a little sugar in my bowl” I am all into the jazzy stuff right now!!

  680. I would actually download a book instead of music- at least to start. I haven’t listened to the radio in awhile… I love to read, but I’m busy so I like to listen to books on cds- but carring it around the house it a little tricky… Right now on my to read list is “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff”, “Breaking Dawn”, “Love As a Way of Life”…
    I love your baby shower idea- i’m going to copy it!!! Thanks!

  681. I would download Brown Eyed Girl! I love that song…and of course, I am a brown eyed girl!

  682. Looks like a great party!
    If I were to win this I would want to put the Rascall Flatts song “Stand” on it first. But actually I wouldn’t, because I would give it to my sweet hubby who so deserves a great gift. He would listen to self improvement talks on it, but would probably also put “Eye of the Tiger” on there… :)

  683. First of all I would need to learn how to download songs onto an ipod. Then I would totally pick
    You are my King (Amazing Love)by the Newsboys, simply because I cannot get through this song (even once) without crying. It says everything I feel.

  684. Okay, I have to tell you how much I would love to win that Nano: My 12yr. old darling daughter has one. She earned it from her grandma. As much as I would’ve liked to get her one it is not possible in our (my) situation. Anyway, she is a doll for sharing it with her “old” mom. I would like my own to put my own kind of music, for when I work out (motivation-trying to lose some pounds!!), and just have a little something for myself. After all this, the first song I would add is “Foundations” by Ms. Kate Nash. Love her! And whoever wins it: ROCK ON!!

  685. Definitely “I saw Him come”! And my best friend’s daughter singing it and playing the piano. She and the song are amazing!

  686. shannon Knight says:

    I will download pocketful of sunshine by natasha bedingfield. It is so cheery and happy.
    Shannon

  687. I love the color of that nano. I would download “The Story” by Brandi Carlile, first thing, and then there are so many others!
    Thanks for a chance to win. Enjoy your trip to South Africa.

  688. I’m not playing…I’ve won some things from BPS lately and would love to have someone else win, but I still will tell you what song I would download first…..GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN! okay it’s not a sappy song, or a sentimental song, or one of the gorgeous songs I have heard while visiting peoples blogs…but it fits my mood and the fact that I am having FUN living in the moment–I forget to take the pictures too. Have a safe and wonderful trip to South Africa!

  689. I would download “Forever is as far as I’ll go” by Alabama, which is the song my husband sang to me on our wedding day. It was such a surprise when my husband started singing to me in front of everyone with his voice cracking. The reason for his voice cracking is that my husband had just finished cancer treatment. Even though I was bawling, it was the happiest day of my life. I had a healthy husband who had just sang a beautiful song to me. 15 years later we are still going strong and forever is as far as we’ll go.

  691. Stacy Julian, Ipods, Weddings and tears… some of MY favorite things! Great Blog Stacy… Keep ‘em coming!

  692. Funny …I was informed by my sweet 4 year old this evening that I’m missing some of the camp rock soundtrack songs…see I only wanted a few not the whole soundtrack, so that is what I got just a few…looks like I need to get the whole album. The perfect thing to put on my new nano, don’t ya think?? heeheehee What a great give away ;o)

  693. “Home” by Duncan Sheik. It’s my husband’s and my song.
    Man, how do I make a friend from Cupertino? ;)

  694. Wow, my first time leaving a comment on a blog!! Can’t wait to see & hear you in Cape Town on the 18th Stacy, am super excited!! I would have to load any (read ALL) Barney songs, an indication of where I am in my life, a 40+ mummy with a 2 year old. Love it!!!

  695. “Chasing Pavements” by Adele — was wowed by her performance the other day on The View … beautiful vocal timbre and style, and she’s only 19 (amazing!)!

  696. Lynda Sturney says:

    Hi Stacy – well, I don’t know how to download and I only recently learned that an IPOD is for music – but I might copy some Spirit of the West from my old cd’s (if one can do that too!!)
    cheers
    lyndaj in cowtown

  697. The first song I would download is “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson. It makes me feel so good.

  698. What a lovely and inspiring post and what an amazing gift for a modern bride!
    The first song I would download onto the nano would be something I could do a happy dance to…. Madonna’s ‘Hung Up’ always gets me up and grooving.

  699. Melanie Witherell says:

    My first song downloaded would be Dave Matthews- The sapace between.

  700. What a fun treat for those who endure to the end!!! I would put the whole Singles’ Ward CD on a new iPod. Fun, with meaning.

  702. Jennifer Kolakowski says:

    First song I would download would be Into the Mystic by Van Morrison. Have a safe trip!

  703. I would download Love Today by Mika:)

  704. Actually, I was just thinking about getting an ipod to be able to download your BPS messages (LOM, Fun, Glimpses) I love to listen again and again while walking. It’s amazing how you can hear different things and get different thoughts listening to the exact same audio! (I guess it has to do with where you “are” when listening. Enjoy your trip to South Africa with your dad.
    Susan

  705. Dixie Rachell says:

    Ummm, not quite sure what songs I would first download. Anything country.

  706. My very first song to download would be “Show Me the Way” by STYX. I have been on a STYX kick lately – a total 80′s girl. :)

  707. In honor of the wedding theme — “We’ve Only Just Begun” by the Carpenters.

  708. This one is easy. “Beautiful Boy” by the beatles. I (try to) sing it to my son when I’m putting him to bed.

  709. lynn whelan says:

    I would definitely download the new Cold Play song that my soon to be 17 year old son is “into” right now. I feel as though for the rest of time whenever I hear this song, it will bring back memories of him and so I want to savor it!!!
    thanks
    lynn

  710. Rosa M. Neno says:

    I would download our wedding song; Tom and I were married 2 months ago, 7/12/08. Our song is from Steven Curtis Chapman: “I will be there.” Have a great day!!
    God Bless,
    Rosa.

  711. so many songs to choose from, but I think I will go with New Soul-seems like it fits :)

  712. wow, what a terrific giveaway! the first song i’d download would be recovering the satellites by counting crows (my fav song & fav band!) jessica

  713. Oh definitly Bryan Adams’, “Have you really ever loved a woman” The spanish version of this song was dedicated to me at my wedding from my husband. Oh to love and to be loved is such a wonderful feeling! Congrats Jenna!!

  714. Hmmmm..that is a really hard question. I guess I would go with some Johnny Cash. Maybe “Get Rythm”, which I would get it I won the NANO!

  715. hhhmmm, would have to be The Calling. Wherever you will Go. That is such a cool gift idea! Never would have thought of that!!!!

  716. It would have to be Eye of the Tiger. My husband and I just found out that our business will go bankrupt today because of a bad investment and this is our all time motivational song. We will survive this and grow stronger as a couple.

  717. Wow — it is so pretty!! I would download “World” by Five For Fighting — just love that song!

  718. ok so i just got a ipod for my birthday,(yeah!) but my brother is getting married next month- i thought i could try and win it for him as a wedding gift for him and his lovely wife-to-be. (how cool is it that you can get them engraved? i had no idea!) on it i would download pics that i will take at his wedding and while i am visiting them and also i would put “hey there Delilah” by the plain white t’s because it is a simple beautiful song.

  719. I’m throwing my sister a Kitchen Shower this month! You’ve given me some great ideas. Thank you for sharing!

  720. I forgot to add which song I would download onto the Ipod – it would have to be “Better Life” by Keith Urban.

  721. ohmygoodness! I need a new ipod–mine(blue, coincidentally) is lost or was stolen.
    First song I will download? Fireflies by Faith Hill

  722. I would load “American Woman” – it gets me kicked up into another gear everytime I hear it!

  723. Karen Charpentier says:

    Piece of me by Britney Spears.

  724. What a thoughtful Shower. My first download would be U2′s Pride, this song always brings me back to my college days.

  725. I would download At Last by Etta James, it was the song and theme at our wedding. I never get tired of listening to it.

  726. Sarae Martin says:

    I would put Def Lepard anything for old 80′s time sake!

  727. The first song I would download is Dave Matthews Band “Ants Marching.” It’s a live version that’s 15 minutes long. Makes running go by faster when the song is that long!

    I would download anything by Michael Buble. He’s my favorite these days!

  729. I have never had an ipod before so this is would be exciting for me but I think I would download anything from Sara Groves. I really like her music. Thanks for all the great ideas for wedding showers. I am the ‘Maitron of Honor’ in my cousin’s wedding in Feb. I will have to use your idea’s!

  730. How very sweet of you!! It would have to be “Be Still my Soul” by Selah. Needing to be reminded to take time to quiet my soul.

  731. scrapalittle says:

    what a fun shower idea! love it.

  748. Cindy Gordon says:

    The first song I would put on my new blue IPod is Bowling for Soup’s “Ohio.” The lyrics are all about asking someone to come back to Texas and I put this song on a cd I sent to my son recently deployed to Iraq – told him to turn it up loud and know all my heart sings every word of that song loudly everytime I think of him…..not the most sentimental of songs – but perfect for him and I….

  749. kiki.comin says:

    i’d put “set this circus down” by tim mcgraw. an oldie, but goodie. loved the shower ideas.

  750. Great songs! Have I told you lately by Van Morrison.

  751. “Shadow Feet” by Brook Fraser. I recently “discovered” her and she is quickly becoming my most preferred ambiance for crafting (and house cleaning). I love her sound and music with depth and purpose is always a plus for me!

  752. Hi, Stacy! The first song I would download onto a shiny new blue Nano would likely be Pedalsped’s “Stretch.” It’s today’s favorite. However, if I happen to be so lucky as to win this Nano, I will be giving it to my 9 yr-old son, Ben. And I think his first song might be the Indigo Girls’ live version of “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

  753. Please share the recipe for this yummy cheesecake triffle…I’m having a baby shower in a month and this would be great…

  754. Abby Arthur says:

  755. The first song that I’d download on this puppy would be Riahnna Take A Bow…Love that song.

  756. Mine would be “how to save a life” by the Fray. My 2yr old loves this song and when ever he hears it he stops what he is doing, comes running and starts dancing. soon we all are dancing around the house. the memories makes me smile.
    thanks for this chance.

  757. How about a theme-trio for the first download?
    (to go along with your favorite 3 shower)
    “Boogie Shoes” by KC & the Sunshine Band.
    “I Can’t Wait” by Nu Shooz
    and
    “New Shoes” by Paolo Nutini.

  759. Been thinking A LOT about getting an ipod [dh has already purchsed the docking station for me - lol] so I”ve also been thinking about what I would download – how I would use it — so many ways [your podcasts from BPS for one...] and songs, oh my – I’d have differnet categories [as I assume most people with i-pod do] the first song? Keeper of the Stars – a song I consider ‘our song’ and how blessed I am have this man in my life [for more than 25 years now...]

  760. Hi Stacy, can’t wait to see you on the weekend;)
    My 1st download would be love song by Sara Bareilles wich is one of my eldest faves and shes away right now so it totally makes her feel closer

  761. I would add:
    Viva La Vida by Coldplay

    The first song I would download is “Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas. I just love that song.

  776. The first song would be “Engine of Destruction” by Jeff Elbel + Ping. We know Jeff from college and this one’s about life with a whirlwind of a daughter. It’s a fun song that my boys and I do laundry to.

  787. Michele Thompson says:

    Hi Stacy-what a great giveaway – you are so generous! I actually don’t know what song I would download, because I would give this iPod to my 7 year old dd who wants a blue one for Christmas, so she would love this! I would imagine she would choose to download something by Hannah Montana/Miley Cirus, or something from High School Musical as they are her favorites. Thanks for sharing with us!

  788. Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison, because good music never goes out of style.

  789. OK – I know this is a kid song – but I would download “Mover Music” by the Imagination Movers. It makes me want to dance every time I hear it! I’ve wanted to get an IPod, but can’t bring myself to buy one – so I’d love to win one! Thanks, Stacy, for all the inspiration you are!

  790. Where There is Faith by 4Him. It’s my personal anthem.

  791. ‘All Summer Long’ by Kid Rock. It is such a FUN song and I find it utterly impossible to sit still through it, even if I’m at work! So I’m all about having some FUN with a Nano :D
    Thank you for the opportunity to win! and HUGE congratulations to the bride and to the hostess as well :)

  792. Debbi Hyden says:

    i would download “it happens” by sugarland off their Love on the Inside CD. i put it on when the day is a bit crazy to remind myself “life don’t go quite as like you planned it. we try so hard to understand it..but the irreputable, indisputable fact it ..it happens”

  796. Jeanie Burch says:

    I would download the Rolling Stone’s song – “You can’t always get what you want”, because of the line “You can’t always get what you want
    And if you try sometime you find
    You get what you need”.

  797. I would put “Girl’s Just wanna have fun” – By Cyndi Lauper – women should have more fun and enjoy the day!

    I would record Peabo Bryson’s “If ever you’re in my arms again”- it reminds me of the first time I had ever gone to a concert of this sort.Everyone was dressed formally, women were tossing roses at him, what a wonderful introduction to that culture for me. A very memorable college experience (and I went with my now- husband, even better!).

  805. I’d download The Ring by Sarah Harmer because it reminds me of the friendship I have with my husband. Or Shoofly Pie by Sharon, Lois, & Bram because it’s one of my baby girl’s favorites.

    and i would use the ipod to download “love is still a worthy cause” by sara groves. i love her lyrics…. and love is such a worthy cause….

  811. What a wonderful gift! I would love to download Pocket Full of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield, love that tune!

    I’m loving your HMF class, have done several of your projects already, enjoying the motivation!

  832. Jeannette P says:

    You may have stopped typing before your tears flowed but you got me on this one. What a wonderful shower theme & apple is a very smart company. I think it is very cool to use an ipod to share photos, music, etc. The first song I’d download would be Made to Love by Toby Mac. I already have an ipod (courtesy of my DH for Christmas) so I would bless my DH with this one.
    As far as not taking the pics you wanted, that’s a bummber but don’t forget that its not to late to write about it & attach the few photos you do have. THe important thing is the feelings you had, the great time you & everyone had. Get those down & let the writing take the place of the photos you missed (or ask others if they had any photos they could share). Thanks again Stacy for being such an inspiration of joy.

  833. Amazed by Lonestar. Not only is it DH’s and my song, it is the way I feel about my family and life. Amazed.

  834. melissa thrush says:

    sugarland~fall into me~love the song, love the album and love jennifer nettles voice~thanks for the chance stacy~

But back to the giveaway, VERY generous of you. And in keeping with the theme, my next download will probably be Jason Mraz, the whole new album!

  836. All songs by Toby Keith.

  837. what a fun giveaway and what a great idea for a wedding shower. Your ideas are always so great. If I won a Nano, the first song I’d put on it would be “I saw God today” by George Strait. It reminds me to slow down and really “see” what’s around me.
    Monica

  855. Oh I love jammin’ to music (especially when I’m alone in the car)… This will probably sound silly but I really like the beat of the new song by the Pussycat Dolls….When I Grow Up. :-) I’ve only heard it once on the radio and don’t know the words but the beat sure is jammin’!!! Thanks for the change to win Stacy!! SO FUN!!
    ps. See you in April in St.Louis. WOOHOO!!

  868. Oh that is SO COOL!!
    the first song to download for me (that I don’t already have) would be “Piece of My Heart” by Janis Joplin. I have Melissa Ethridge’s cover of it, but not the original. Janis started here in Austin, and I love how the power builds in the song. Either that, or Legacy by Nicole Nordeman (lyrics here: http://www.stlyrics.com/songs/n/nicolenordeman20851/legacy548659.html ).

  869. There are many titles on my Happy song list. I think I would have to pick “Dreams” from The Cranberries.
    This song always makes me smile, it makes me think about the beautiful days of fall. The amazing colours everywhere in the crisp air. I love fall, actually I love every season but fall is especially beautiful; so “Dreams” is a perfect pick for the season.
    Have a super duper day!
