Daddy things

I am forever and always a daddy's girl. Through and through he has always been the light of my life, we share a love of music (and he gave me a great appreciation for a fantastic guitar solo or song with a lot of passion and soul), we have the same sense of humor and we enjoy the same things. Growing up I always thought of my dad as an attractive guy with a good sense of style.

His hair always looked great even as it thinned thanks to:

he would comb and move his hair around ever so carefully before we went out anywhere and then spray it down with this stuff. This hairspray is old school but I still buy it sometimes, your hair will not move and its great for that up-do for prom or to make you look like you're not balding!

My dad always smelled great too and I recall one cologne that he had only because we thought the name was stupid:

I am pretty sure he doesn't use this anymore but I still have the free duffel bag he got when he bought this the first time at Lazarus!

Since my dad has played guitar since he was 16 I always remember him buying these strings. I always thought that the package was really cool too.

I'm sure my dad wasn't the only one who used this shaving cream and I'm sure I'm not the only girl who would steal it when I ran out of my own and then get in trouble when he couldn't find it.

So I know I was supposed to come up with 5 things, but honestly I can't think of anything else that I always remember my dad using. I would say though that the guitar strings bring me the most happiness to think about. I've always loved listening to my dad play, seeing the look on his face when he would finally master a song. I loved when he was in a rock band, when they would let me sing with them or make up songs about my boyfriend at the time. They played at my 16th birthday party and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I always wanted to learn to play but I'm content being the singer.

I noticed that many people chose this prompt and I think I might use it on my blog sometime, too!
