Batteries Not Included

So as you all know from my previous post, I bought this CD player for Marissa (my 5 year old niece) for Christmas!  Well today on my lunch break I went and bought batteries for it!  I just remember when I was little and I had a little boom box I carried everywhere...I'm pretty sure the neighbors called the cops once but the cop just sat there watching me and my stepsister do our "dance routine" to Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" (kinda pedo now that I think about  

So instead of going out and buying a 5 year old a bunch of CDs that will inevitable get lost or scratched,  I downloaded her some tunes and burned her a CD...which I can make over and over again.

So here's her mix....

"Calling All the Monsters" ~ China Anne McClain
"Love You Like a Love Song" ~ Selena Gomez
"Lovesick" ~ Emily Osment
"Your Love is My Drug" ~ Ke$ha
"Raise Your Glass" ~ Pink
"If I Die Young" ~ The Perry Band Tribute
"Tik Tok" ~ Ke$ha
"Falling Down" Selena Gomez
"Party in the USA" ~ Miley Cyrus
"Blah Blah Blah" (Clean) ~ Ke$ha
"Love Story" ~ Taylor Swift
"Baby" ~ Justin Bieber
"Hoedown Throwdown" ~ Miley Cyrus
"Tell Me Something I Don't Know" ~ Selena Gomez
"Whip My Hair" ~ Willow
"The One That Got Away" ~ Katy Perry
"Super Bass" (Clean) ~ Nicki Minaj
"Blow" ~ Ke$ha
"Sparks Fly" ~ Taylor Swift
"You Make Me Feel..." ~ Cobra Starship

I think she is going to go INSANE!  She gets so excited when some of these songs come on the radio. 

How sad is it that I've been jamming out to this mix in my car!?!?


  1. this is such a fun mix..i'd def listen to it too, haha :)

  2. I am 26 years old and I would completely jam out to these songs in the car too! This looks like a mix my seven year old niece would love. Good choices!

  3. Seriously ~ when I say listening ~ I mean windows down ... sunroof open ... radio up...LOL!

  6. aw that's so adorable! My niece is the same age as me, so I could never do fun things like this! Oh well, here's to hopin' one of my other siblings gets knocked up with a little girl I can spoil like this soon! haha


  7. That cd player is awesome, what a great gift!

  8. Im so impressed! I love the idea of this and having a new 5 month old neice myself am so going to have to borrow this idea when she gets a bit older. I can just see this being her favourite pressie for the year as its so special with the mix cd (i think mix cd's for anyone is special) :)

  11. that is the best mix ever! can I have a copy? no, seriously...!

  12. I switched the Pink song out with Aqua ~ Barbie Girl ~ which Marissa loves. She had a blast with her CD player. She carried it EVERYWHERE and just danced and danced. At the end of the night, when I was tucking her into her bed she said ~ Thank you Circle (that's her nickname for me don't ask me why lol)~ the music was my favorite Christmas gift!

  13. Okay so I have a little video of all my nieces dancing to the music and ... I FORGOT MY CAMERA AT MY PARENTS' HOUSE!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
