  4. If they just played Marvin Gaye right now, I would be happy. 


  1. Sup, Skittles? No Motown. Tsk tsk tsk. ;-)

  2. Isn't Marvin considered Motown? :)

  3. High fidelity!!!! love that movie. ahh I love London, never been to Rome but going this June - SO EXCITED.

  4. GET READY FOR ROME! It will steal your heart!!!

  5. Whoops. I think that was supposed to be Smokey and it came out Motown. Marvin is definitely Motown and that is a great, great selection. (I know.) :-)

  6. ha yes! I struggled not putting Smokey down, but if given the choice between Smokey and Marvin, Marvin is #1!

  7. In a Sentimental Mood is such a solid pick! Oh, and as far as the Bachelor goes, that show is hilarious. I am team Ashley S. mostly because I absolutely believe that she faked her crazy and has everyone punked. Gotta appreciate those Brooklynites....and performance art at its best.

  8. YESSSS. I totally believe the same about Ashley S. Or at least I hope so for that girl's sake!

  9. Hehe, such a cute list! I'm impressed by the amount of travelling you've done. Italy is somewhere I would really like to be at the moment too.....oh for some sunshine!! xxx

  10. Don't worry Ashley. I'm eating ALL THE FOODS in London for ya

  11. where do you live now, then? i served my mission in southern california, and i miss it so much!!

  12. Hi Sydni! I am living in San Diego right now, the most southern Californian you can get! haha

  13. You lived in places I have halfway lived too - except London. Never lived in Point Mugu but my friend did, so I visited the base quite a bit.

  14. Interstate Love Song is a GREAT driving song. Actually anything from STP is, I think. I watch Mindy too. I'm mad about Peter leaving!

  15. Balut is the most visually graphic thing I've eaten but it taste okay. ;)

  16. I had to eat it with my eyes closed.

  17. I know, why would he leave one of the most popular shows on air?? Well, at least Morgan is not leaving!!

  18. I couldn't do it! You're brave.

  19. Agreed! I love Morgan. He's so weird and awkward.
