We Want to Know Wednesday

Before I start, I wanted to apologize for my lack of presence on the blog front the past week and a half. 12 days ago my friend asked me if I wanted to attend the Breaking Dawn premiere with her. I told her I had never read the Twilight series or seen the movies and didn't plan on it. She was horrified shocked surprised. (I didn't want to get sucked into the Twi-hard craziness.) She begged me to read at least two chapters. I finally gave in to her request. A day later I was at her doorstep requesting book 2. She basked in her victory and gave me the rest of the books. So, for the past 12 days, I've been reading when I haven't been working or wrangling children. I've also watched all three movies with her in preparation for tomorrow night! :-) I'm 1/3 of the way through Breaking Dawn. Hopefully, I can finish before the movie. I know it is only the first half of the movie but I don't want anybody spoiling the ending for me while I'm there. 

Ok, long rant over. Now on to the questions!

Welcome to We Want to Know Wednesdays Q&A!
Hosted by MamarazziQueso and Crazymama


This week's questions come from the awesome Queso and she wants to know...

{1} Do you have any musical talents?

I play the piano. I took piano lessons for 12 years. I haven't kept on it like I should but I intend to start practicing again. I still play the piano nearly every Sunday at church. I'd like to start playing classical music again. It is my favorite. :-)

{2} What role, if any, does music play in your life?
Music plays a big role. Music can bring all sorts of emotions and I definitely let it. When I want angry/hard stuff I love to listen to Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory album. When I'm in a lovey dovey, sappy mood I like to listen to Christina Perri. Let's not even get me started on the Dixie Chicks  Taking The Long Way album. :-) LOVE!

{3} What is your all time favorite song?
The first song that comes to mind is (Everything I Do) I Do It For You by Bryan Adams. I remember camping out by my radio waiting for it to play. I loved it.
{4} Do you sing in the shower?

Surprisingly, no. I sing everywhere else but not the shower. I have been known to serenade my coworkers. ;-)

{5} Has a song ever made you cry?
Several songs have made me cry but the one that comes to mind is the Return To Me soundtrack. Not so much the Dean Martin stuff but there are a couple instrumental tracks that are just gorgeous.

I love the old songs!! The people can sing without audiotune and the words are clears!
I love love love Billie Holiday. When I'm feeling down that's the CD I pop in the stereo.

The Twilight books are so addicting! I hope you have a great time seeing Breaking Dawn.

So so Jealous that you're going to the Premiere! Wish I could. My ward in WA got me hooked in the Twilight books and I loved them and got my husband and inlaws reading them too. They are good.. just hope they do Breaking dawn okay.
