30 day blog journal: days 1 & 2...

I saw this fun blog "carnival" on Sarah Denley's and Ashley's blogs, so I thought I would join in.  If nothing else, it will encourage me to blog each day (even when I have no time/energy to!)  I missed yesterday, so today's post will have days one and two.  There will be a new post/topic for each day in the month of August.  Some days the answer to the question might be included in my post, and other days it might deserve a post of it's own....we'll see.  If you want to see the list of topics or join in the fun, head over to Emily's blog to link up.

August 1st topic of the day: FAVORITE SONG
I honestly have no idea.  I love a lot of praise and worship music, pretty much every Christmas song ever, and of course many, many old hymns.  If I had to name a few of my favorite hymns I would probably choose "The Old Rugged Cross," "How Great Thou Art" and "This is My Father's World" - but there are oh so many more!
And now, a little confession:  My name is Amy and I love "radio rap." I know, it seems almost blasphemous to talk about rap music and hymns in the same paragraph, BUT in my measly defense it is RADIO rap (meaning totally and completely censored - ha!) In my naivety  I originally had no idea that rap music was so censored when played on the radio.....imagine my surprise when I downloaded a song off iTunes - I was mortified!  I don't really have a favorite (although I do have a soft spot for Kanye West - I'm so ashamed) but I have been cutting back on my radio rap playlist since Libbi is now along for the ride.  We pretty much stick to Praise Baby :)

August 2nd Topic of the Day:  FAVORITE MOVIE
Another confession: I don't really care for movies.  I couldn't tell you the last one I watched.  I just have never really been much of a movie buff.  I have a handful of movies that I really like and I will usually just watch them over and over instead of ever seeing new ones.  I'll see previews for movies and say, "ooooh, I want to see that" but when it comes down to it, I may want to see it, but I definitely don't want to pay $12 to see it. And by the time is comes out on DVD, I've long forgotten about it.  If I had to choose a favorite movie, I would probably go with "Notting Hill" - Jeffrey and I used to watch it over and over while we were dating and it always makes me think of him.  Plus Hugh Grant is not too bad either. ;0) And "Elf" always, always makes me laugh no matter how many times I've seen it.
