Are you already singing this song after reading the title of this post? I am! Actually, I spent several weeks singing this song in rehearsals for a local production of “Guys & Dolls” and I haven’t stopped since.

While going through my children’s book collection a couple weeks ago, I came across I Love You! A Bushel and a Peck, based on the song by Frank Loesser with illustrations by Rosemary Wells. I’d picked it up last winter but had yet to use it, which has since changed. The book takes the lyrics quite literally, and the illustrations are adorable. My kids especially enjoy the “doodle-oodle-oodle” parts of the song. Just be prepared to have the tune stuck in your head for days :)

How was your weekend? Mine was mostly enjoyable; I spent a lot of time with my family, but not as much time as I spent with Sadie, my golden retriever puppy. My husband was out of town which meant I had full walking, feeding and letting-out responsibilities. It was a lot of work! By the time he returned last night, I was completely exhausted and ready for him to take over.

Anyway, hope your week is off to a great start. I have three more new songs coming in the next few days, so make sure to bookmark this site if you haven’t already!
