Things that make you go hmm

I mentioned the other day that I've been using the "Songza" app on my iPhone to listen to music.  I've really been enjoying it, you pick a mix based on what you're doing.  So if I'm working out I can choose a workout mix or if I want to unwind I can pick a relaxing mix.  My favorite thing lately has been setting it up in my bathroom and listening to it while I take a shower in the morning or relax in the tub at night.  So this week I discovered the "singing in the shower" mixes and one of the playlists was called "Feeling good in the 90's" which has totally taken me back to my pre-teen/teen years so I've been kind of digging it.


So I was listening to it again today and the song "Mmmbop" by Hanson came on and I laughed a bit to myself, because I totally bought that CD when I was 15.  And then I realized....I'm 30, I bought that CD when I was 15.  That was half of my life ago.  Then I started feeling old.


Fortunately I have on a very cute and youthful feeling dress today so I put those old lady feelings aside and instead just sang along to Mmmbop.  Cause yeah, I totally still know the words.  I have no shame!  You gotta love it.

  5. Ha! This post made me laugh, and then feel sad. I owned that Hanson CD too. And that was about half my age ago. Sigh. And I still know all of the words too!

  7. That dress has both florals AND polka dots?! LOVE it! Listening to old 90s music is so fun, it really takes me back (and then makes me feel old at the same time, ha).

  8. I got into a friend's car the other day and she had the HANSON cd playing in her car! Don't feel old -- nostalgia feels GOOD! :) Love that dress on you!!! Have a wonderful day! xoxo

  9. Hah if you're old because you know all the words to a Hanson song, then I must be old too. Our Goodwill plays "oldies" mixed with some not-so-more-recent well known hits and I probably look like a dofus running around singing My Sharona and Beach Boys songs, but I love it!

    That dress has so many pretty colors. It really plays well against your red bag and just goes "POP"

  10. Haha, Hanson! Yeah, I remember back in the day when they were "the band."(Their posters adorned many a locker.)
    I love your red polka dotted bag, it is so sweet and cute. and that drop waist on your dress is really fantastic!
