Mari Made Me Music Meme

Seriously – she did.  Mari over at Mari’s Virtual Notebook posted this KNOWING full well that I’m absolutely helpless in the face of a music meme – I must drop everything and immediately play along.

(Sigh…I am so weak.)

So, after you enjoy mine, head over to check hers out, and then do your own!  Employ the linky-thing down below to let us know where you put it so that we might peek into YOUR music collection. hehehehe.

xo, Ri
