Wanna play along?

I've noticed my "ratings" dropping off around here, and so I'm pulling out my big guns today. Are you ready to play along? Here's the jiggity-jig.
Be the first person to correctly guess the song that played while Chip & I danced our first dance as husband and wife. You may guess up to three different songs- but there's a small catch. You must NOT have commented on Nitty.Gritty. prior to this post- I'm looking to see if there are people out there reading, but not responding (besides you, Andy!) The winner gets a Nitty.Gritty. piece of mail and probably a tiny fridge magnet or something like that.
Just so you know, I read all my comments- so don't try to sneak in the game. Unless I hit 24 comments and nobody has answered correctly. At that point I will open it up to anyone who wants to play along. (I picked 24 comments because I've topped out my comments at 23 people so far.) Good luck and I look forward to "meeting" some of you!
***Edited***
Hubby thinks I've gone blog-insane to post a game such as the "wedding dance song" game, but I guess I'm okay with that. I know he still reads this and loves me the same- no matter what I write about.
So, I am now opening this silly game up to anyone who wishes to play along- and who doesn't think I'm as wacko as my hubby thinks that I am. You may guess once- because here's a big clue...We danced to a classic tune by Frank Sinatra. It was a tune that came up early on in our dating relationship, and it kind of just stuck out as the song for us that day. When I hear it at the weddings I work at, it always makes me smile!

Hi Jody,

Love your blog. I read it most days, but I do not know what song was playing when you and Chip danced your first dance as husband and wife..... Just wanted to say Thank you and God Bless!

OK, I'll take a stab at this! And because I really have no clue, I'll guess the most off-the-wall songs I can come up with: 99 Red Balloons (because I remember dancing to that in high school and I thought it was a very cool song); Nights in White Satin (because Moody Blues was the first rock concert I ever went to); or Kiss to Build a Dream On (I was going to continue the color theme, but decided to throw in this one, not so off-the-wall, but unlikely, and it was my husband's and my wedding song, even though we didn't dance to it because we both look like total fools when we attempt to dance).

So there it is.

BTW, I really enjoy reading your blog--I ended up here when you linked to it on Heidi Swapp's blog (and anytime you want to come decorate my Kitchen Aid mixer is fine with me. I'm thinking her rub-ons would probably work--I should give it a try.). You're going to have such a great time at the Scrap Etc. event. I was on the CK cruise in March that featured Heidi, and she's really just an amazing and talented and energetic person.

Hi, I've been caught...I am one who reads and never posts. There is just something about you and your family that has really touched me and my spirit. You have blessed me and I pray for you and your family.
The song I have chosen is one that was in my wedding..."I Will Be Here" by Steven Curtis Chapman. I cry every time I hear it...
Blessings on your trip, I'm sure it will be great!

Okay another guilty non-commenting reader!! lol I read every single day but just don't comment often! I promise to do better. Oh and since I've previously posted so technically can't win your little contest I'm still gonna guess...You look wonderful tonight by Eric Clapton or Can't touch this!! lol

Michelle said...

I have commented before on your blog..but I am going to have to guess "The way you look tonight". I LOVE that one and it is a PERFECT wedding song!

Jennifer said...

Hmmm... hard to say... I would guess either "I Will Be Here" by Steven Curtis Chapman or maybe "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel!

Ok, I'm a repeat commenter who stops by almost every day to read your blog. Obviously, I love it!!! So, here is my guess---Love Is Here to Stay, by Frank??? Keep on bloggin'.

Ok, "I Will Be Here" was also our wedding song, I had never heard it before at the time and a suite mate in the college dorm played it for me and I fell in love with it. Your hint of Frank Sinatra still makes it hard because I can't think of any right off the top of my head. "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole was going to be my guess Terry

Jennifer again said...

Okay, I love this game... I even checked back to see some of the other guesses and so I saw your hint. My new guess is the Way You Look Tonight!?

BethK said...

Never commented, though I've checked in here often. Thought about it a few times but today i had to guess, so i'm going with, "It Had to Be You,"-- it was my wedding song and a classic Frank Sinatra song although I think we used the Harry Conick version of it...

In any case, love your blog--we have so much in common, too much to comment about here but I do have four kids under the age of 6 so I know what your days are like!! Thanks for sharing the nitty gritty of your life with us all, I am constantly encouraged by you!

I am guessing I've Got You Under My Skin

Hi - I read your blog every day and enjoy it so much. I'm a mom of 1 daughter and have that same creative gene that you do! I walked down the aisle to It Had to Be You but someone already guessed that so I will guess Fly Me to the Moon! Love that song because I love the moon so much.

Hi Jody!! I discovered you on my daughter's birthday, March 29, and became instantly addicted to you and your inspiration. I don't feel better because you have bigger problems than I do...not at all...everyone has problems and seeing that someone else has more difficult times doesn't lessen anyone else's problems. You let us know that there is a way to deal with life and look to the future with hope and love and humor. You are such a good and real person ((hugs)) to you!!! Now, for my song guesses..."The Way You Look Tonight" should be your song, cuz you both look great inside and outside...so there. Thanks for being here!! I'm not trying to win...just wanted to finally say {thanks!} but I guess we're required to guess if we want to talk to you today {giggle}

Hi Jody,

I guess I better "de-lurk" just to say I love reading your blog. Just to read something real... and inspirational (creatively and spiritually). I am embarrassed to say I had to search to come up with a Sinatra song and I still have no idea... maybe, "Someone to Watch Over Me"? :)

Angie said...

My guess is:
My Funny Valentine
I enjoy reading your blog.

Sue said...

Hi Jody,
Can't remember how I orginally found your site, but I've stopped in from time to time. You have a beautiful family and your posts are always inspirational and uplifting.
My guess for your wedding song would be "Our Love Affair"

Knit and Purl Grrl said...

I'm making one guess. It's the song that John and I danced to:
It Had to Be You.
