I’m a Believer

I’m a believer. I’ve got the fever. The fever, yes the fever, of Justin Bieber.

Stop judging me. Why am I not allowed to adore the musical talent of a 16 year old boy?

He’s talented so get over it and get on board.

[Sidebar: I’ve figured out which type of love I feel for Justin Bieber. It’s not romantic seeing that I’m married and he’s 16. It’s not motherly either because, well I’m not his mom (although I almost could be because his mom had him when she was a teen). It’s not an older sister love because I don’t feel like I could be his sibling (although that would be awesome).

It is the babysitter love. You know… like when you fell in love with the little kiddies you babysat back in high school and now they’ve grown up. You still adore them, but they don’t care too much about you since they have had lots of babysitters. In this case the other babysitters are the millions of other girls feeling the way I feel. Nailed it.]

Moving on. I cannot stop thinking about the premiere/my best friend/the kid I babysat/Justin Bieber. Details about the experience (yes, an experience, because it was not just a movie) coming soon.

Until then, watch this:

Oh, you finished that one? You want another? I can’t blame you. Here’s another one:


I've gotta beep out what I really wanna shout.

Do you flip out when you hear the intro to this song, too? I just have to stop everything I’m doing, sing along, and dance whenever it starts. Oh, gosh, I can’t wait for Never Say Never-midnight showing-next week!

Instant Tears

Rollin’ Deep

Two years ago, I saw Adele and James Morrison in concert. It was incredible. But my love for Adele started about one year before then when my brother sent me her Chasing Pavements video.

I became obsessed with Adele, almost as bad as my Rihanna obsession. But the bad thing with Adele was that she only had one CD out. I bought it, listened to the songs over and over again. And finally, grew tired of the same 15 songs.

Well, guess what! She is FINALLY releasing her second CD in February and has just released one of the songs from the new album.


Prince of Peace

T.J. and I were walking into the temple the other day and he started to sing a song out loud, but I stopped him and said, “T.J., only church songs!” You know, I was just trying to get in the right spirit for the temple.

Anyway, T.J. started singing another song. This time it was Prince Ali from Aladin (he sings just as many random stories as I do, it’s great). I looked at him again to show him I still didn’t think that was churchy enough. But he said, “No, this one works.” And he kept on singing.

“Da da da dahhhhhh, Prince of Peace!”

Hilarious and Darling? Yes.

How’d you like to be a spotted elephant?

As soon as I saw it, I knew I needed it.


And while I’m at it…

Here’s another one that they did.

Oh Glee, I miss you so much. Why did you have to turn so scandalous and racy? Has anybody been keeping up with it? Has it gotten any better?


I guess the change in my pocket wasn’t enough.

K, I cheated. I gave up Glee, but I came across this song and am obsessed. It turns out my new idol is Gwyneth Paltrow. I LOVE her voice, it’s so unique! Anyway, be warned. Once you listen to this song, you will want to keep it on repeat for days and might burst out singing it on campus!


For about seven years, White Christmas by The Drifters was stuck in my head. I’m not kidding. I sang it all the time. But one day it passed, and it no longer is a part of my life.

It came on my Pandora Christmas station today, though, so I thought I would share a bit of this joy with you.

Scouting for Girls

I came across this commercial one day and really liked everything about it, especially the song in the background.


So I did a little googling and found out the song is called A New Day by the band Scouting for Girls. I had never heard of them, so I created a Pandora station for them.

I suggest you do the same.

I love finding new bands and I’ve really been searching for something new and different. I listened to the gang, as Kate Hudsen would say, for way too long, who for me includes Ingrid, Regina, and Adele.

So anyway, not all the bands on that station are great, but I just am loving Scouting for Girls right now and hope you do too! Enjoy!
