When pondering on what to name my blog.... I thought & thought.... and the color yellow came to me!! A dear friend that has gone to be with the Lord (the color yellow that reminds US of her beautiful and bright smile) gave me the inspiration for the theme . In memory of a wonderful friend.

So I have to tell you all about this.... We are sitting on the couch reminiscing the 90's

J. Jay is such a music junkie (he can almost name any song before he even hears the first word... ALL THOSE YEARS IN A TRACTOR ...I assume ) and he is in shock that I have not heard most of the "top songs" from the  90's.   Although, we find it funny that I know all the Nsync, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, Spice Girls, Hanson and all those songs.... 

What's your favorite song from the 90's ??


  1. I haven't spent tons of time on a tractor, but I'm pretty good at naming songs. How? I don't know. Colby and I play the name game in the car {especially since I'm good at it}.

  2. Could you use whole wheat panko crumbs to cut even more calories?
