Wow! Thankyou!!!

I won my cousin Marilyn's music contest...more out of default, but a win none the less! : )) I was so surprised to get a beautifully wrapped present in the mail.

It was the cutest paper and one of my favorite colors too, red. Inside the box was a bunch of CD's of super hip and cool music. All of the CD's have really cute cover art too. It was so fun to open this. I am really excited for it all too.

You see, I have kind of given up on music. Not to say that I don't have a love or an appreciation. I love rock n roll! I just stopped looking for new stuff. I would hear something in a commercial or on the radio that would catch my attention, but then not like anything else in their repertoire. I also am at a loss on how to find new worthwhile music. So to help me out, my dear cousin has come to the rescue! I am looking forward to popping them in and find some new favorites.

Thanks again Marilyn!

That red paper is absolutely LOVELY!!

by the way....I just got a chuckle. I was at Stephanies blog (catching up on posts) and I read a comment from Abbey (or so I thought) But I finally figured out that it must have been you signed in under the wrong name because I DOUBT that Abbey's New Years Resolution is to have a baby! LOL

Wow, Abbey Wait a few more years! =)

Hey Heidi - one of the best ways to discover new music in years, is to get a Zune... The latest version of the Zune software (which is available on all Zune models) has a feature called MixView that can take you on an awesome path of discovery, based on what you already know you like.

Click Here to get a feel for what it can do...

...or, you can just keep winning Marilyn's contests... :)

How sweet of Marilyn to not only pick you, but to make the package and the contents so lovely. Three Cheers for Marilyn.
And Three Cheers for Heidi discovering new music.

I love red too. My bedroom is a deep shade of red. I didn't even care what my husband thinks of it, but he loves it too.

I love music and find music on itunes. .99 for a song to try out a new artist isn't bad. Remember when we had to pay $10 or so to buy a whole album from an artist only to find out we didn't like them?! Luckily those days are over.
