The New Year Blog Hop!

 For this Blog Hop I guess I'm supposed to tell you about a favorite New Years Eve memory. This is a hard one because I normally don't do much for New Years. Normally my husband and I  are both working or I'm watching my nieces and nephews. Just like most years my husband was scheduled to work and I had no plans until I got an invite to a new friend of mines house for a little party.

So I packed up my car and took the 2 hour drive out, I had a blast! I got to visit with some people who have become very good friends, have a few drinks, and got my Karaoke virginity popped :) Thanks KB for being so gentle with me -xoxo.

After I got into it I realized I might suck at the vocals but at least I knew a lot of the words to the songs and it was fun, but I guess when ever your with people you enjoy everything is fun. 

We all finally faded out around 3 am and spent the afternoon hanging out and listening to my Kindle read us erotic sex scenes -lol.  Okay if you have never let your Kindle read to you you might not understand this but if you have you know what exactly what I'm talking. 

Have you ever Karaoked? Do you have a favorite song to sing? Let me know what if you have and what your song is to be entered into winning one of my favorite reads of the year - HOTBLOODED by Erin Nicholas 

HotbloodedHer mama always said the women in their family were hotblooded…

And it’s been causing Brooke Donovan trouble her whole life. But it wasn’t until her mother took on the most powerful man in Honey Creek, Texas, that Brooke truly realized the daughter of the town whore didn’t stand a chance. When she left, it was supposed to be for good. But now, thanks to her late husband’s deal with their hometown, she’s back in the last place on earth she wants to be. Temporarily. As soon as her debts are paid off, she’s outta here. Until in walks the one man who can make her rethink everything.
Dr. Jack Silver fixes things. So, when he learns his uncle is responsible for Brooke losing her husband, his sense of honor drives him across Texas to make amends. Instead of a broken woman, though, he finds a gorgeous, feisty physician’s assistant trying to survive in a town that wants her gone. She also has a mile-high fence built out of pride—and a clinic that’s at risk of going belly up. She may not want his money, but the clinic? He can fix that. He just never expects that in setting Brooke back on her feet, he’ll be swept right off his own.

    sstrode at scrtc dot com

  2. I let my friends convince me that kareokee was a good idea for my 21st birthday. I don't remember what the first song I did was but I know that it was terrible. The second one I sang was Wayward Son by Kansas and my friends video taped it thinking it was going to be as bad as the first. Turns out that was my song because I nailed it :) I decided to end my career on a good note though and haven't done it since lol.


  3. I have not done Karakoe and I'm thinking it will take quite a number of drinks for me to try it, but I'll make sure my friends know that if I get to that stage that they play Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! I'm an 80's girl and that is one of my favorite songs ;)


  4. No Karaoke for me. People would pay for me not to sing.


  5. well i sing all the time in public so id totally do karaoke and my song thats hard sicne ir eallys ing eveyrthing would have to say tho its ahard choice cause id have to say What can i say by carrie underwood and sons of sylvia but i sing everything i know the words too lol

    Happy new year!

  20. I've played sing star with friend does that count, but you cant pay me or make me drink enough to sing in public!



  21. Believe me, no one wants to hear me singing, lol. I do love music and have a good memory for lyrics, but my singing abilities are pretty much non existent.

  22. My sister got herself a Karaoke machine for Christmas and opened it on Christmas Eve when we had our Christmas dinner. I refused to participate. Why? Well - I started the day with a pounding headache, and when she started singing in the microphone, it made it worse. I was determined not to make anyone else get a headache by having to listen to me sing!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    May God bless,

  23. Sounds like you had a good time! I've only done Karaoke once and it was a blast (though I'm sure I sounded bad too). New Years is usually spent at home, eating and watching movies until midnight when we usually toast the New Year. This year was no different...lol

    Thanks for the giveaway

  29. LOL oh dear!! The one and ONLY time I did karaoke was at my brothers surprise 30th bday party. My aunt sister in law and I all decided to do it. We did a grease mix. It was a blast but omg I realized that I am completely awful! LOL But still a good time. :) Thanks for sharing!

  31. I have karaoked at home with my family but not in public. We had a blast! I cant say that i have a favorite song to karaoke to. We choose songs for each other to see. lol It was so much fun! Thank you for sharing and for the giveaway! Happy new years!

  34. I have never karaoked & probably never will. I know boring. And I certainly can't pick a favorite song. I like so many different types & it changes all the time. I do like Adele a lot & Cold Play. Thanks for the giveaway! Gloria

  35. I haven't got the nerve to stand up in front of people and sing. Even though I was in a church chior. That is I don't have the nerve sober... with too much to drink just about anything goes. But I can remember all the words to Long and Winding Road by the Beatles.

  53. I only Karaoke's once, and we sang something from the Bee Gees. It was hilarious! Have to do that again sometime.

  54. Nope. Never. I can't hold a note to save my life. Therefore, no favorite song.

  55. My favorite New Year's memory is when I was around 7 year's old and my best friend and I stayed up through the New Year all the way up until around 4am. We were the happiest 7 year old's ever! Our parents were too wasted to even notice! lol



  56. My parents own a machine so I usually find myself being forced to sing at gatherings ahaha. I don't mind it, but it does get a bit embarrassing when they make you sing in front of strangers.


  57. Happy New Year!
    I did Karoake once with my girlfriend in Bermuda. That was over 20 years ago so I have no idea what we sang. For senior week in high school, another girlfriend, ex-boyfriend and I went into one of those little recording studios on the boardwalk. I can't remember which songs we sang there either. Bad memory.

  58. I've never karaoked, but I've seen pictures and videos of friends doing it and I must say that sometimes it can get a bit crazy.

    lilazncutie1215 at yahoo dot com

  59. Hi,

    Sorry! I have never karaoked before. I'm too shy to perform on the stage. :) By the way, I'm following your blog if you don't mind. Thought that you'd be more appreciated that I joined your blog list. :)


  60. Love Karaoke - favourite song Ride Sally Ride

  61. never did karaoke.

  62. i have not been in years but i use to go with my husband. my favorite songs were by Patsy Cline(Crazy,Sweet Dreams,etc.) or the Judds(Girls Night Out)and he would sing the Bellamy Brothers "Redneck Girl" for me. it was alot of fun.

    thank you for the chance at such a great giveaway.


  63. I used to threaten my kids with my singing (yes, it's THAT bad!). I only do Karaoke in Japan, where they have places you go with your friends, they give you your own room & you call on the phone & they deliver drinks (lots and lots of drinks) -- then, and ONLY then will I cut loose with my (horrid) rendition of "Wish" by the Nine Inch Nails.

    elizabeth @ bookattict . com

  64. I don't usually Karaoke but on occassion when I allow myself to be talked into it, I'll let loose with "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith and only with a partner.


  65. WOW I'm so surprised that so many other people haven't Karaoked. Thanks I don't feel so bad now :D Best of luck to everyone!

  66. I love to do Karaoke.

    Thank you for the wonderful contest.

    I hope you have a very prosperous New Year.

    orelukjp0 at gmail dot com

  67. Oh, I love playing karaoke. I'm not as good as my sister - she's professional, we can say :] -, but I always enjoy it!
    Thanks for the giveaway and happy new year!

  68. I had no idea your kindle could read to you...does any kindle do this?! I don't do karoake....well, I do American Idol via wii....does that count? I love doing "Losing my Religion" by REM because it's in my vocal range....

    Thank you for the giveaway!
