Subject: Add Safety Dance

to the list of wedding music!!! SSSSSS----AAAAAA-----FFFFFFF----EEEEEE----TTTTTTT-----YYYYYYY-----SAFETY DANCE!

This was the email that I got from Mr. Peep today. And I have to admit- this song wouldn't be on my list!! But I am totally OK with that! I am just excited that Mr. Peep is excited to bust a move on the dance floor!

Here's the thing, up until a wedding last June, I could NEVER get Mr. Peep on the dance floor. It almost made me want to break up with him at his cousins wedding- seriously this Peep likes to bust a move (like the white girl I am) whenever I get the chance. I couldn't marry someone who doesn't dance.

Enter. DJ David.

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe him. Mr. Peep was out on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG!! I don't know how DJ David did it- other than playing an amazing list of music, but he saved our relationship (not really, but you know what I mean)!! We practically booked him for our wedding on the spot. Within 3 days of our friends wedding, we had a signed contract and had paid our deposit.

Here's evidence of the dancing Peeps, we're in the corner. Me grooving out with my eyes closed and Mr. Peep with his curly hair and glasses:

And here's one of my Bridesmaids busting her own move.

So with the wedding count down in full swing, we've both been trying to get our favorite songs on THE list. And boy do we have different taste in music. After a long night of picking and choosing our music (and a last minute email from Mr. Peep), I emailed our play list to our DJ today.

In the hope to help someone else from spending hours compiling a list, here's ours (please don't mind the misspellings and such- we're in count down mode- I don't have time to make everything perfect!!):
