Top Ten Songs of 2008



Top 10 of 2008



It was hard enough for me to narrow my top songs down to a list of 10, so these are in no particular order.

#1 Britney Spears- Womanizer
Because, who isn't excited to see Britney comeback?

#2 Robin Thicke- Dreamworld
This song was not a single but his voice gets me every time.

#3 Kings of Leon- Use Somebody
Just an all around beautiful and sexy song

#4 John Legend feat. Andre 3000- Green Light
A soulful voice and a great beat to move to...what more could you ask for?

#5 Duffy- Mercy
Duffy's first single, and a great song

#6 Beyonce- If I Were a Boy
I'm not usually a Beyonce fan, but this song (and video) is too good not to include on the list

#7 Lady GaGa- Just Dance
Probably the song of the summer, definitely a fun song to dance to

#8 M.I.A.- Paper Planes
M.I.A.'s first album flew somewhat under the radar (still amazing), but thanks to the movie Pineapple Express, Paper Planes became a huge hit this year

#9 Justin Nozuka- After Tonight
This song was on repeat on my ipod for month; the rest of the album "Holly" is good too

#10 New Kids on the Block feat. Ne Yo- Single
I was only 3 when the hit "Hangin' Tough" came out, but my then 10 year old sister brought New Kids into my life then, and they still hold a special place in my heart...any of you lucky enough to go to their comeback tour understands.

Honorable Mentions:
Ting Tings- Shut up and let me go
Ne Yo- Closer
The Killers- Human

* I highly recommend getting all the albums on the list. Especially:
The Killers "Day & Age"


Kings of Leon "Only by the Night"


Robin Thicke "Something Else"


Thoughts on my list? Anything you think should be added or removed?

well, Christmas is finally here! We both wish you the happiest and blessed Christmas. We included a little holiday playlist for your enjoyment, as well as some images from our favorite Christmas movies. We are taking a vacation for the rest of the week, but will be back next week, with some special "best of 2008" posts!

The Great Debate

No, I don't mean anything political, this debate is about puppies. If you have read about our interests in our profile, you know we love Basset Hound boxers (and the puppies too). But, this year for Christmas, Danielle got me not only Basset boxers but Bulldog boxers from J. Crew. Now, Bulldogs are my fave puppies, so I told her that I have a new favorite pair of boxers. Thus sparked the debate between the two adorable breeds...

Which do you prefer?


Bulldogs



*Michael Phelps and Herman



*More adorable Bulldogs


Basset Hounds



*Bentley the Basset



*Precious Bassets

Yesterday, my sister in law scored preview tickets to Confessions of a Shopaholic. ADORABLE! I don't want to give anything away, but I LOVED it! Jerry Bruckheimer was even at the screening to see the audience reactions..

Additionally, CONGRATULATIONS to my New York Giants for clinching the top spot and getting the a fast pass to the second round of the playoffs..I see another championship coming!!

Happy Friday!







Just wanted to share some photos that made me smile

Our Tenth Post!

I can't believe we are already on our tenth post! We decided to celebrate with a 10 seconds, minutes, hours, days, etc. post that Danielle found on apartment tbd, etc.

10 seconds ago I was filling out my answer to 10 minutes ago- I worked backwards.
10 minutes ago I was enjoying my Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks.
10 hours ago I was just getting home after a friends Holiday party.
10 days ago I was working, nothing exciting happened to me.
10 months ago I was in my final sememester at college, trying to find a job.
10 years ago I was in seventh grade and thought I was really cool because I was a cheerleader

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10 years from now I will 32 and hopefully married (maybe with children).
10 months from now I'll be panicking and trying to pull together a Halloween costume.
10 weeks from now I'll be celebrating my cousin's 21st birthday.
10 days from now I'll be helping my mom take down the Christmas tree
10 hours from now I'll be getting dinner with a friend.
10 minutes from now I'll be "working."
10 seconds from now I will have just finished typing this sentence.

24 years...


Lovely facebook bumpersticker sent to me this morning by Sara




Wow. 24 is almost 25, which is almost 30. Holy Smokes.
Tonight is also my moms bday as well, so we are doing a family dinner at STK in LA(I will post tomorrow if we have any celeb sightings!) But here is the outfit I am planning on wearing:

Happy bday to me! by sweetnothings04

I also have only one birthday present wish, and if anyone can make this happen, I will be eternally thankful

Happy Birthday!

Today is the lovely Danielle's birthday, and since I have been so behind on actually sending presents/cards this year, I thought a post with one of her favorite things (cupcakes) could make up for it. (I hope she forgives me).

So Happy Birthday Danielle, I am so lucky to have had you in my life for the last 4 years!

Happiness in the form of a secret santa gift

I dont know about the rest of you, but I absolutely love Laffy Taffy, specifically the watermelon flavor. Lately I have had to go to the local 7-Eleven to satisfy my artificial watermelon flavored cravings, but today, my fabulous co-worker Miranda surprised me with an entire tub of the delightful treat, as my secret santa gift, at our holiday lunch. My excitement was only contained by the fullness in my belly after a delicious meal...tomorrow I think I will dig into the treats...

I wonder how long they will last.

-Sara

can I pull it off?









new year, new hair color?
