Friday Love Song : Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want

I love this song by The Smith’s – a total classic and totally wedding perfect. She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M Ward) did a cover for her new movie 500 Days of Summer which I REALLY want to see. I totally love her voice. Make sure you take some time to relax when planning your wedding. I think checking out a movie is great for that. Maybe this one or Funny People looks great also. Hope you have some fun weekend plans! Happy Friday!

And some photos of Zooey since I think she is so cute and totally heart her style – and she is engaged :)

  5. Hi Jen!

    Great songs. Thanks!

    i just wanted to let you know that your Blog was a major inspiration for my while I organised my wedding. It's all over now and I thought you might enjoy some of the photos that I posted on my blog

    It was quite a thrifty wedding. We made all of the flowers oragami style, bought bridesmaid dresses from the local markets for $30AU. I made my own veil. The dress was preloved. Our friend helped with photography and the bridal car was my friends old Kombi. Yet as you will see it was still very beautiful.

    I hope you enjoy….

    Love and many thanks.

  6. oh my god – is this the instrumental song from Ferris Bueller's Day off when they are in the museum???? I love the melody soooo much!!!

    The World Exploded Into Love – Bob Schneider

    One and Only – Teitur

    Hi-Low – Theresa Andersson

    Heavenly Day – Patty Griffin

  9. I love Zoey, these are great! Thanks.

  10. I love your blog, and random thought: I've found that a good way to stimulate the economy is to click on adds on every blog I go to. I don't want the things in the advertisements, but every time I click on an add, the blogger gets a little profit, therefore stimulating the economy! Keep up the good blogging!

  11. Love Zoey and M. Ward. I think their style of music is just amazing. She is also gorgeous beyond belief! Thanks for sharing this song. Love the blog!

  13. Man, if I could only shop her closet… :)

  14. Zooey rocks. You'd have to be crazy to not like her.

  15. The Smiths are icon to me. If you ever have a chance to see Morrissey in concert, you would not be disppointed. He has age gracefully and he still has the voice that gives me chills.

    BTW I hope you had a chance to see 500 days of Summer. If not, it's a must see. My fiance and I loved it and enjoy the soundtrack as well :)

  16. I love Zooey SOOO much. As do I love She & Him and The Smiths. Loved this post.
