saturday 9: perfect storm

Saturday 9: Perfect Storm (2014)

1) This song is about “the thrill of a lifetime” kind of love. Do you believe we each get one great love? Or do you think it’s possible to fall in love more than once?
i think it’s possible to fall in love more than once. i’m envious of those that do find their one great love, but for most of us, we fall multiple times.

2) Brad Paisley endured his own “perfect storm” in 2010, when he lost his guitars in the massive flood that hit Nashville. Tell us about a time when you had to clean up after Mother Nature.
i’ve been pretty lucky in that the natural disasters that have happened here have not affected me very much. i hope i didn’t just jinx myself, though.

3) He is married to actress Kimberly Williams, who played Steve Martin’s daughter in the Father of the Bride movies. He has admitted he was a little in love with her before he met because he’d seen her on screen. Do you have a crush on anyone right now?
aw, how sweet. i have a couple of celebrity crushes. 😛

4) He’s a passionate Cleveland Browns fan. Are you following the NFL this season?
here and there.

5) Brad has developed his own line of western wear for Boot Barn, including some pricey items. (A “Perfect Storm” felt hat goes for $230.) What’s the most expensive item you’ve added to your wardrobe recently?
gosh! most of my clothes are very cheap! i couldn’t see spending $230 for any type of clothing, let alone a hat! i’d rather buy $5 shirts at walmart–they do the same job. the only thing i think that’s expensive in my closet is the dress i used for a performance many, many years ago. i don’t ever wear it out normally. but recently?? hmm. maybe a $12 pair of pants. i don’t spend a lot on clothes, as you can see.

6) “Paisley” is also a term for a popular print. Are you wearing a print or solid right now?
solid, but it’s got some embroidery.

7) Crazy Sam is not a big country fan, but she can sing along with this song because it played so very often at a bar she frequents. What’s the last song you sang?
“watch me.” i know. it’s been stuck in my head all week. even my son is like, “please stop singing that song.” 😛 but the last whole song i sang was “open arms.” the opening strains started as i was driving home yesterday and then it cut off, so i sang the whole song by myself. 😛

8) Though Brad Paisley has recorded songs about drinking, he never touches alcohol. His favorite beverage is Yoohoo, a chocolate beverage bottled by the Dr. Pepper/Snapple Company. What’s the last beverage you drank directly from the bottle?
water. boring, but it’s pretty much all i drink.

9) Random question from a Sat9er: What’s your favorite handmade item?
well, yesterday i went to the 5th of 9 baby showers this year, and the honoree loves owls, so i made a cute owl diaper cake for her. it came out really nice, if i may say so myself. i wanted to make one for me, too! 😛 but since that was given away, the thing that i own that is my favorite handmade item right now is probably my blanket. i made the one i’m using now, but i also have a blanket made by my aunty when i was a baby that i still have. it brings back many memories since i used it as i was growing up.



  1. I wish you posted pictures of your owl cake!

  2. I wish that diaper cakes were a thing when I was having babies. They are such a cute idea.

  3. I think it is sweet that you have a favorite blanket made by your aunt. A treasure.
