35 years and still going strong

Good morning, lovelies! Tomorrow is a special day for me. It marks our 35th wedding anniversary. In honor of the day I cherish, dearly and the man I love more with each passing day, I present to you our favorite 70s band.


I could not have asked for a better husband. God blessed me more than I deserve with this wonderful man. Thank you DH for the best days of my life ~ 35 years and still going strong!

Aubrey, If, and Sweet Surrender from The Best of Bread are our favorite songs sung at our wedding. I hold these tunes in my memory like the sweet fragrance of a rose forever.

Thanks for joining us for another week Monday’s Music Moves Me! On behalf of the lovely Dancing Queen, Marie and her Solid Gold dancers ~ Callie, Stacy, Naila Moon, & myself want to invite you to step on the dance floor with the 4M crew.

My Wedding Music By Bread From 1979

Welcome to Monday’s Music Moves Me with Marie from Xmas Dolly,  head conductor and helping her to make sure things runs smoothly on the Love Train are co-conductors: Lorie from The Shewbridges of Central Florida, CALLIE from JAmericanSpice, and Stacy from Stacy Uncorked!


I love rockin’ on Mondays! I just love it when we can share the tunes rolling around inside our noggins, don’t you? There’s always a lot of music locked away just screaming to get out.

This week’s theme is “Songs played at your wedding (or the year of your wedding). If not married your favorite song when you were 21“.

DH and I married June 9, 1979 at Summitt Missionary Baptist Church in rural West Virginia where we attended. This is so retro, I know. Here’s to the couple!


Robin’s close friend, Tony Vance, (they were in a band together) song these two Bread songs at our ceremony.



Robin doesn’t play the drums anymore, but Tony still plays guitar and sings. He now jams for the Lord. Rock on, Tony! He’s the dude wearing glasses and a brown t-shit singing lead. Check out the video…

Cyber Party Monday w/Q&A plus music

Let’s kick-off the work week with a little crazy fun.  Below, you’ll find my participation in two cool memes:  Meet Me On Monday and Monday’s Music Moves Me.  Be sure to click on the meme buttons, if you want to link up to be included in the blog hop on a larger scale or simply play along with me.  The weekend is over, but anytime is a good time for a party.  A party this is that wholesome, clean fun. You’re invited to a cyber party Monday!

Today, Java asks…

1. What jewelry do you wear 24/7?  The only jewelry I wear 24/7 is my wedding band & engagement ring.  I like keeping it simple.

Our hands 1979

2. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it?  I do a combo of cutting and twirling. Twirling is more fun than cutting up the noodles, but it’s also messier.

3. How many siblings do you have?  I’m the oldest of four with two younger brothers (one adoptive brother) and one sister.

Boone, Pamela, & JC

4. Were you named after anyone?   My grandma always told me I was named after her good friend, but my mother says I wasn’t named after anyone.
5. Coke or Pepsi?  I like both colas, but if I had to pick only one then it would be Coke.

Last week, I discovered this cool Monday meme.  Music really moves my soul and my feet. {Big cheesy smile}  Anywho, let see what tunes I care to bring to this Rock n’ Roll Monday.  Almost 32 years ago by my husband’s good friend, Tony Vance, sang this song at our wedding.  He has a voice very much like David Gates.


Today, Tony still plays music. He’s a member of the 5 Man Jesus Band. As luck would have it, they have a YouTube video features him singing lead playing guitar.  This is the first time I’ve heard him perform with his Christian band and I have to say, they totally rock for the Lord.  Let’s give up for 5 Man Jesus Band!

Isn’t this incredible?  I couldn’t resist sharing this video of a friend jamming for the Lord.  Okay, it’s your turn.  What songs fill your soul this Monday?
