The Hot Mess Life

The Little Things

It doesn't take a lot to make me smile.

Cute puppy pictures.
Are you flippin' kidding me?!?!?!?!?!?!

Watching the part in Talledega Nights where Ricky Bobby doesn't know what to do with his hands.

Watching the season premier of GLEE!

When, after digging through the pen drawer at work,  I find a one that makes my handwriting look amazing! (You know what I'm talking about)

It also makes me happy when I hear a long lost song.  It's even betterer when it's in Zumba.  Wait, it's even bettererer, when it's remixed and I get to shake my booty like there's no tomorrow.
(Or just look like a plain fool.)

These three songs have been making the rounds in my Zumba classes.  (By the way, some of these may age me quite just a bit)

1. Snow- Informer - Do you remember this song, don't be ashamed, I remember. Well, now there is a remixed version from India.  It pretty much rocked my face off.  It rocked it right onto the dance floor. 

2. C+C Music Factory - Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) - Anyone who has ever been to high school basketball game in the 90's has heard this at half time. Or if you were a cheerleader has probably performed a choreographed dance to this song at half time.   

3.  Kenny Loggins - Footloose - When this song came over the loud speakers it was on like Donkey Kong.  There is no other way to end an hour long sweat session than to do some corny 80's moves to this classic.

Yes, those songs are awesome, and you should all just realize this now and come to terms with it.  Good times.

What are some of your "old time" favorites?


  1. The Ricky Bobby thing where he doesn't know what to do with his hands is like watching my students perform onstage. No joke. It's hilarious. I'll even show this clip to them in class because they don't realize they look that ridiculous. LOVE IT!

  2. Yay for footloose!!!! I agree. I like your blog, gotta follow now. Visitor from Mingle Monday

  3. Pens + Puppies + Ricky Bobby is pretty much my idea of the best day ever! Way to keep things sunny on a random Tuesday!
