Link to an Interesting Don Henley Interview

Continuing my obsession with anything Eagles related (as I listen to "Busy Being Fabulous"), here's a neat interview with Don Henley by a paper in New Jersey: Q&A: Don Henley & Co. take it to the limit five more times

Don's being his usual dry, slightly sardonic self - gotta love it! You know, he wouldn't be such a bad pick for president... *ducking the tomatoes that are being thrown at me!*

Link to Eagles Concert Story

I found this video clip on the web site of Atlanta's ABC television station and wanted to share - The clip has some voice-over by the reporter but also has some good snippets from the first show that the Eagles did in Atlanta. Enjoy!

Some of My Favorite Songs at the Moment

I uploaded several of the songs that I'm really enjoying lately to this file-sharing web site in case y'all are interested in downloading some awesome music. Here they are - just click on the links and it'll take you to the page where you can download them:

Backstreet Boys - Inconsolable

Backstreet Boys - Love Will Keep You Up All Night

Backstreet Boys - Something I Already Knew

David Cook - Always Be My Baby

Brooke White - Every Breath You Take

Pink - U + UR Hand

Eric Carmen - Make Me Lose Control

Most are new releases except for the Eric Carmen one - that one is an oldie-but-goodie from my childhood. I'm also REALLY enjoying the Eagles' new album, Long Road Out of Eden. There are too many good tracks from that one to upload, so just trust me and buy it! In particular, Waiting in the Weeds, How Long, Busy Being Fabulous, I Don't Wanna Hear Any More, Guilty of the Crime, No More Cloudy Days, and the title track are incredible. I can't get enough! ;) Oh yeah, they are also on this month's cover of Rolling Stone magazine - AMAZING cover pic and very good interview with the guys. Worth the rather steep cover price in my opinion!

My Flickr Photos

I love taking pictures of food, be it my baked goods, cereal, candy, or assorted junk food. I've uploaded my favorite shots onto a web site called Flickr, which is a place where artsy folks upload their pics. Here's the link to my photos if you wanna check them out - Flickr Photos from PinkCupcake. There's an area beneath each picture where you can leave comments; feel free to leave some (I love feedback!). :)

Awesome Eagles Concert!

Mom and I had a GREAT time at the Eagles concert in Alpharetta on Friday night!! The guys looked great and sounded amazing! It was so great being able to hear the classic songs as well as the new material from Long Road Out of Eden (they performed my very faves from that album - about died and went to heaven during "Waiting in the Weeds"!). As many folks around me did, I took some pics with my cell phone - wasn't brazen enough to bring my own camera (some did, but I know that the Eagles frown on that, and I don't wanna piss them off - we were 17 rows back from the stage, so theoretically security could've seen it). I've posted some of the pics below; my cell camera is weird in that you can only use the zoom function when it is set on "panorama" (which is a series of 3 shots puts together). So, that's why the pics look the way they do - still looks pretty neat in my opinion! Most of the pics were of the video screen, but some are of the stage. Hope you all enjoy! :)

Fun Quizzes on Blogthings

I found one of these quizzes on a blog that I was browsing, and after I took the first, I looked at the list of all the quizzes available and went a little nuts! They're a lot of fun to take, and some of them can be rather insightful and really on-the-mark. Here are just a few of my results; take the quizzes yourself some time - they're a hoot!

You Are an Ice Cream Cake
Surprising, unique, and high maintenance.
You're one of a kind, and you don't want anyone to forget it.
You're fun in small doses, but it's easy for people to overdose on you!

You Are A Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Girl
Creative. Expressive. Unique.

You Are a Brownie
Decadent and intense, you aren't for the weakhearted.
Those who can deal with your strong flavor find out how sweet you really are.

You Are an Espresso
At your best, you are: straight shooting, ambitious, and energetic

At your worst, you are: anxious and high strung

You drink coffee when: anytime you're not sleeping

Your caffeine addiction level: high

Welcome to My Blog!

Hey everyone! I've finally joined the world of blogging, though to be honest, I don't really have a lot to blog about! This blog doesn't have an overall theme or topic around which it is organized - it, much like yours truly, will be eclectic, offbeat, and highly amusing (y'all do think I'm amusing, right? I assume that's why you laugh at me...). I figured I'd make it light and fun - post cool links and pictures, go on random tangents, discuss the latest antics of my 17 month-old daughter Taylor, that sort of thing. Should be fun - I do love to talk, so I can't imagine not being able to think of plenty of absolutely scintillating things to post! ;)

To get us started, I thought I'd post some recent pics of Taylor enjoying some applesauce. Girlfriend definitely loves fruit - there are few that she hasn't eaten! Even when she was an infant, she went nuts over everything from bananas and peaches to guava and mango. She's also really fond of the dried fruits that Gerber makes for toddlers - she eats them by the handful! Anyway, we gave her some applesauce recently and let her have at it - she preferred scooping it up with her hands and eating it as opposed to using her spoon (which is evident by the mess on her face, LOL). Anyway, hope you all enjoy these! :)
