I wanted to share with you one of my favorite songs Gratitude by Nicole Nordeman. The video made to it is pretty good as well. I love this song and it brings me to tears every time I hear it. I am trying to learn to be thankful in whatever God brings my way and remember that he is in control.

Green Tea Glee Giveaway.

Two of my favorite things are tea and taking nice long baths. So how cool is it have green tea in your bath. It makes for a great bath. On a cold winter (or warm summer) day there is nothing more relaxing to me than to head to the bathtub with a cup of tea and a book to read. My family laughs at me because I do so much reading in the tub. A good bath product only makes my bath much more enjoyable.

I have been following Joyful Bath Co. on Twitter for sometime now and have been very interested in her bath products especially the Green Tea Glee. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win some free Green Tea Glee bath salts on her bathday contest on Twitter. Once I tried them I knew I had to share this great product with my readers. Green Tea Glee is a mixture of green tea and peppermint which delights the senses and recharges your body. Green tea provides natural anti-oxidants and peppermint helps the mind focus and clear. The two together make for a very enjoyable bath experience. I also have tried the Oatsy Floatsie which is very relaxing and has a great smell of lavender. It was recommended to me to use for my sunburn after a day in the sun. It had a great soothing feel that took the sting away.

Joyful Bath Co. is graciously giving away a 10 oz. Glass Jar of the Green Tea Glee to one of my readers. To enter you must visit Joyful Bath Co. and tell me which bath salts most appeal to you. Then come back here and leave a comment.

Rock of Ages Brodway Soundtrack Review

Thanks to One2One Network I received the new Orginal Broadway Cast Recording of  five-time Tony Award nominated "Rock of Ages".  I have to admit at first I was not real thrilled  too about hearing it but when I found out that Constantine Maroulis was one of the stars of the show I was excited to listen to  it.  Rock of Ages is set in 1987 in a legendary Sunset Strip rock club.  A small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest metal songs of the 80's. The musical is an arena-rock love story told through the mind-blowing, face-melting hits of Journey, Bon Jovi, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia, Whitesnake and more.

This album made me take a walk down memory lane having grown up in the 80's listening to these songs.  The list of tracks includes:

Just Like Paradise / Nothin' But A Good Time

Sister Christian
We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
I Wanna Rock
We're Not Gonna Take It
Heaven/More Than Words / To Be With You
Waiting For A Girl Like You
Wanted Dead Or Alive
I Want To Know What Love Is
Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
Here I Go Again
The Final Countdown
Any Way You Want It / I Wanna Rock (Reprise)
High Enough
I Hate Myself For Loving You / Heat Of The Moment
Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Can't Fight This Feeling
Every Rose Has Its Thorn
Oh Sherrie
The Search Is Over
Don't Stop Believin

After listening to these songs and the memories they bring make it has sparked a desire in me to see the Broadway musical.

If you want to check it out for yourself  you can see the making of the soundtrack here and you can purchase a copy for yourself  here.  This album is getting great reviews so you may just want to pick up a copy for yourself.
