  1. thank you!!! I love it! especially the end... great way to finish!

  2. So which ones did you wish you would have included and not included? I approve of many of your choices!

    1. Valid question - I wouldn't have included the mushy stuff (Celine, Dierks, BNL, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift). I love ALL of that stuff in regular life, but for such a long endurance test, I needed something CONSTANTLY HOPPING. I had absolutely zero patience for anything slow. If it wouldn't get me on the dance floor at a wedding, it wouldn't suit me here. :)
